~ with Jillian Stein of Read Love Blog
Oh, how I loved this story! How did you choose Melissa and Wyn for this novella?
I’m so glad you loved it! Melissa and Wyn intrigued me when I introduced them in last year’s novella Roped In—a male and female character who were both unapologetically sexual. I thought it’d be fun for them to compare/swap/discuss their little black books and that was my jumping off point for this story
Both Wyn and Melissa are kindred spirits when it comes to their love life and I loved that about them. How fun was it writing their banter?
One of the coolest things about writing is when characters just sort of take over. Wyn and Mel’s senses of humor meshed, but even I laughed out loud at some of the things that came out of their mouths. I definitely didn’t plan for that, I just went along with it and it made my job in telling their love story much easier!
