While I was daydreaming about Gavin’s body the man himself appears suddenly in front of me. I’m so startled that I stand up and spill my coke down his pants. “Shit, I am so sorry, very sorry”, I say as I grab my napkin and proceed to ummm wipe his crotch area. Holy shit…..I’m wiping Gavin’s crotch..OMG! Gavin starts chuckling and takes the napkin from my hand and does his own wiping. I apologize again and Gavin just chuckles some more and excuses himself to go to the bathroom.
Great going idiot…sigh! Gavin comes back and I apologize again and introduce myself. “I’ve never had someone start of a Q&A session with a coke spill to my crotch. Nice way to break the ice”, Gavin says. I clear my throat and give him a nervous smile. “I am so sorry again. Thank you so much for agreeing to speak to me today”, I say. “No problem”, Gavin replies back. I look down at my notepad and ask the first question………
Gavin: I live what’s in the pages. Jaci does all the writing. She’s nervous. I’m not.
Ing: If you’ve read either of the books was there anything you were surprise to learn or wish hadn’t been included in the books? Any other moments you wish had been included?
Gavin: No. I’m an open book…so to speak.
Ing: Congratulations on your recent engagement! Did you ever think you would commit to one woman? What made Elizabeth Darnell “THE ONE”? What was the moment when you realized she was “THE ONE”?
Gavin: I didn’t think I was ready to settle down, until I got tangled up with Liz. There’s just something about that woman, ya know? She’s in my blood.
Ing: What has been the best and worst thing about being in a relationship with Elizabeth? Are there any new discoveries about her that you are surprised about as you grow?
Gavin: The best thing about Liz is there’s never a dull moment. The worst thing about Liz is there’s never a dull moment. As far as new discoveries….she lied. She can cook.
Ing: What’s your favorite Elizabeth body part and tell me why!
Gavin: Her legs. She’s very flexible 😉
Ing: What’s the most romantic thing you’ve done lately for her and what’s the most romantic thing she’s done for you?
Gavin: Hmmm…what have I done for her lately? I made her pasta puttanesca for dinner the other weekend. As far as what she’s done for me lately? I can’t put that one down on paper. But trust me….it was really good.
Ing: So how are the wedding plans going? Any details that you can spill? Are you going to have a crazy bachelor party?
Gavin: Wedding plans? I just show up. The women are in charge of all that, thank God. And Mick’s in charge of the bachelor party. Liz just told him no strippers allowed.
Ing: So I have to ask how did you feel about all the smoking sex scenes that Jaci included in the book? Did she do you justice? And how does Elizabeth feel about the scenes. OMG have your parents read the book? LOL!
Gavin: There is a lot of sex isn’t there? * grin * And hell no my parents haven’t read the book. Geez.
(I look at the door and see Elizabeth walk through. This is my que to start wrapping up)
Ing: So let’s do a fast and furious 6 Q&A

Most people play by the rules. Gavin and Liz aren’t most people…
Win at any cost. That’s always been the mantra of sports agent Liz Darnell. When she carries things too far and risks losing her number-one client, baseball pro Gavin Riley,
Liz realizes that she’ll have to work extra innings to win him back. It
might not be too much of a stretch. She’s had a thing for this player’s
moves since she first laid eyes on him, and by the looks of it, he
wants her just as bad.
Gavin’s more than ready—especially when Liz is offering herself
as part of the bargain. And as much of her as Gavin wants. For added
thrills, he decides to throw a little curve ball Liz’s way to see just
how far she’s truly willing to go to keep him as a client. But when love
unexpectedly enters the playing field, neither Liz nor Gavin are ready
for the biggest game-changer of them all.
field and in the bedroom. But a sexy, determinedly single mom just might
be the one to throw him off his game…
For years Mick has been taking full advantage of the life
available to a pro athlete: fame, fortune, and a different girl in every
city. But when he meets and beds confident, beautiful event planner Tara Lincoln,
he wants much more than the typical one-night stand. Too bad Tara’s not
interested in getting to know football’s most notorious playboy any
As the single mother of a teenage son, the last thing Tara
needs is the jet-set lifestyle of Mick Riley; even though their steamy
and passionate one-night stand was unforgettable. Tara’s life is
complicated enough without being thrust into the spotlight as Mick’s
latest girl du jour. Tara played the game of love once and lost big, and
she doesn’t intend to put herself out there again, especially with a
heartbreaker like Mick.
But when Mick sets his mind to win, nothing will stop him. And he has the perfect play in mind.
