Kellan Kyle Interview with Eye Candy Bookstore

Interview with Kellan Kyle

Mornin' Kellan Kyle! Thank you for agreeing to be interviewed by us Eye Candy Bookstore ladies today for our page and your many adoring fans!

Is there anything you'd like to start out by saying to the ladies? Carrie has a request for you to say "Mornin" to everyone. Lol! ;) Um, well, I guess I’ll start with mornin’ then. Mornin’, ladies. How’s it going?

We just have a few questions for you whenever you are ready!

Question #1: Toski asks- What made you decide to get involved with music? Who influenced this decision? I suppose that was my parents’ doing. They gave me a guitar to keep me…entertained…and it just felt right. It felt good.

Question #2: Carrie wants to know when you began your love affair with coffee? Lol! I don’t know if I would go so far as to say “love affair”, but it seems like everybody drinks it here, so I’m around it a lot…and it’s delicious. It’s warm, smells good, and feels amazing going down my throat first thing in the morning. What’s not to love?

Question #3: What are your feelings about Denny? We all decided "toolbag" was a good nickname for him. Toolbag? What? That’s not very nice, girls. I think Denny is a truly great guy. He didn’t deserve any of the shit that happened to him, and I’m just thankful that he felt guilty enough for kicking my ass that he forgave me. Eventually.

Question #4: What is the craziest thing a fan has ever sent you or said to you? Well, that depends. What’s crazy, what’s normal? I’ve had girls offer to blow me before they’ve even offered their names. To me, that’s normal. On the crazy scale…I did get cornered by a girl in a wedding dress once. She told me that she wasn’t leaving my side until we were married. She even had handcuffs on her. I managed to get away from her, but now Griffin likes to hum the wedding march song to freak me out. So not funny.  

Question #5: If you had to choose ONE song that is not yours to describe your relationship with Kiera, what would it be? Just one? That’s difficult…we’ve had so many ups and downs. How about “Won’t Stop” by OneRepublic? Yeah, that sums up a lot for me.

Question #6: Sarah asks- OMG the car scene, you were pissed, really pissed. What made you stay and call the truce the next morning? I don't think many guys would have stuck around if they were in your position.... What I did and said was awful. I owed her an apology. And…I loved her. I couldn’t leave.

Question #7: Tell us about your band mates, one thing about each of them that they'd probably kill you for telling us? Ah, are you trying to break up the band? I would never spill private stuff like that. You will never get me to say that Griffin has, on occasion, pranced around the bus in Anna’s underwear. Never. Please don’t make me relive that moment…

Question #8: When you first saw Keira at Pete's what was your instant thought? That she was one of the most beautiful girls that I’d ever seen. Tell us in your own words what it was like for you at the espresso stand. Intense. Confusing. Emotional. It all worked out for the best, but that was a really hard moment for me.

Question #9: You just about lost your shit when you found the pregnancy tests, if they were in fact Keira's, thinking back on it now, what would you have done? Fuck, I don’t know. I probably would have raised the baby with her. Or not, if she didn’t want me to. Jesus, I don’t want to think about that. Next question.

Question #10: Hmmm, is this a Kellan-choice question? All right… Kellan, what are your plans for the holiday? Well, Kellan, that’s a very personal question, but I guess I’ll answer it. Kiera and I rented a cabin in the woods for the week before Christmas. We’re going to trek through the snow, drink hot chocolate by the fire, and potentially be eaten by wild animals. Wish us luck.

Away by BA Wolfe Review: 12/18/13

Away by B.A. Wolfe

Carrie's Review
You know those special moments in your life that you never forget?! The moments that give you so much anxiety your heart feels like it is going to burst..the butterflies as big as bats in your belly...that was me the entire time I read Away! I can't even put into words as the tears fall how emotionally attached I am to this book! 

Ok..ok..I'll suck it up and get on with it! 

Cassie is on her way to visit her best friend Melanie after making some mistakes in her life that she can't take back. Melanie is the only person that Cassie has that understands her, and what she is going through. You will love Cassie immediately! She has had a lot handed to her but she stays strong through it all. I felt for her though. I knew she was keeping her pain bottled up and eventually it needed out. While making her way to see Mel Cassie wrecks and ends up having to stay in a little town with her nurse Trish she meets at the hospital, and her family for a few days until her car gets fixed. This is how she meets Jason. He just so happens to be who helped her during her wreck and Trish's son. 

Im going to try really hard to get through this review without crying like a newborn baby! 

Jase- if there were ever a man I'd want my daughters to find one day it would be a Jase! He is the kindest, sweetest, most caring man I think I have ever read about! He puts Cassie needs first! Cassie is harboring secrets and Jase knows them, but he wants Cassie to be comfortable telling him the truth. Jase has a huge secret too. This secret stopped my heart! I warn you there will be tears! They are all worth it though. Just getting to spend time with these characters you won't regret a single minute of reading Away. Jase had me at Sweetheart and Darlin! Who doesn't love a cowboy?? Right?? Ahhh! Love him! He will steal your heart and NEVER give it back. Be prepared to add him to your BB list now. He will be staying there I promise you. 

As their relationship develops and their bond grows stronger you will be like OMG is this real? Why??? Nooooo!!!! Please!!!!! <---- that was me! I swear I really thought I could stop it somehow! I knew it was going to happen but you're never really ready for it! All those emotions you can't turn off will happen! 

You will love the friends in this book too..Moose and Mel are hilarious and I want more of them please. I don't think I disliked any character except when Anna Jasons Ex comes back to town but Cassie puts her right in her place and it was great. 

Here are some of my highlights 

"Tell me you feel it Jase. You feel your heart on fire every time we get close. That you try not to even think because all you want to think about is what it would feel like to have our lips touch again, knowing it will be just as earth shattering as the first." <------ swoon city! 

"What's the best memory you have?" "You picked a tough one he said taking a deep breath. "But I'd have to say I finally have one that I'm sure can never be replaced. Meeting you and seeing your pretty face in that car when I came to your rescue." <----- Could this man get any sweeter? Stick a fork in me I'm done! Goodness sakes...

Getting lost and meeting me was just the beginning Sweetheart. Now, my pretty girl, it's time to write away. Green light, Jase~ <------ the tears fell hard here and you will see why as you read! 

There are so many more I love but I would be here all day so I'll let you read to see the rest! Please go read this amazing book. The chemistry is off the charts! There's a HOT rain/library scene that will leave you speechless. 

I give Away 5 HUGE glittery stars! I would give more if I could!! It deserves more. Loved it from start to finish! Thank you B.A.Wolfe for sharing this with us. Can't wait for book two. "To Cassie.Write Away Sweetheart." <----- I had no words...Loved! Green light B.A. always ;)

Chasing the Wild Sparks Review: 12/18/13

Chasing the Wild Sparks

 “Chasing the Wild Sparks” follows the relationship ups and downs of Hadley Beckett, “Becks” and Finn Wilder.
Hadley Beckett is a 33 year old woman who is in a relationship with her longtime boyfriend Finn Wilder.  She is ready to settle down, she wants to get married and have children. The problem is that Finn, star sports caster and resident dare devil, is completely against both. Hadley has always been okay with where their relationship stands, but lately she is feeling her biological clock ticking and with the secretive nature of their relationship, she wants more of a commitment--- Marriage.  Finn tells Hadley he is ready for the next step, moving in together, but doesn’t think he ever wants to be married. The problem is, Hadley doesn’t’ want to just be his live-in girlfriend forever. 
Hadley’s friends Greg (Rod) and Morgan keep telling Hadley she needs to talk with Finn about what she wants, give him an ultimatum. Hadley is skeptical until Morgan tells all of them her relationship news. Hadley is shocked by Finn’s reaction to the news and needing time to process this, she runs to be alone. Finn catches up to her and while they are having a heated conversation about their future, a co-worker and his wife happen upon them. When Finn chokes and can’t introduce her as his girlfriend, Hadley realizes she has had enough of Finn’s procrastination. Will Finn ever be ready for marriage and children?
 This story is in both Hadley and Finn’s perspective, and gives you insight to what each other is really thinking.  Greg and Morgan add a flare to the story with their colorful, funny banter and their true friendship to Hadley. I loved every word of this story and can’t wait to read the second book in the series “Daring the Wild Sparks” to see what happens with my new favorite couple, Hadley& Finn and their amazingly witty friends!

About the Author
I love to read. I’m a huge fan of books and when I start reading anything, I usually forgo doing everything else, I mean the housework will still be there in the morning (right?). When I love a story or book that I’ve downloaded, I usually refrain from sleep and am crabby the next day – but only until I pick my iPad up and start reading again!
I was recently described by a reviewer as my writing style is Chick-Lit with an Edge. I liked that so much that that’s the way I describe the genre I write.
My goal when writing is just to take people away from whatever is going on in their lives, even if it’s only for a split second.
I’m a go with the flow sort of person and don’t really take a course of action to get where I am going. I live in the moment and don’t usually worry about tomorrow because whatever life is due to bring me, I’ll be happy to accept.
I love my family and friends and will help anyway I can if someone needs it. Every Friday I spend it with my girlfriends where we have ‘cake day’, which usually consists of a yummy yet nutritious lunch, quickly destroyed by a delicious and devilishly good cake and a caramel latte.
I really don’t like people that are nasty just because they can be, I don’t believe that’s necessary, I mean life is hard enough as it is!
Three things you need to know about me; 1 – I’m fiercely loyal and will bend over backwards to help. 2 – I love chocolate, like A LOT and 3 – I have a huge crush on David Gandy at the moment! (I mean, who hasn’t, have you seen the man????)
