As someone who writes romance stories where the woman are older than the men, I immediately 1-clicked this book by J.B. Heller called What if It’s Right? Boy was I glad I did! This book is a sweet and sexy story about attraction and finding the right person in someone unexpected. Great stories of older woman and younger men are few and far between this one is a credit to the genre. You’ll fall in love with Weston from the minute you meet him and he’ll fight for you to do it.
J.B. took a few minutes from her busy schedule writing her next book to answer my five burning questions. Check out her answers below and her other books which are all different flavors.
1. Let’s start off with Kill, Marry or Screw? Gideon Cross, Kellan Kyle or Weston?
I’m not going to lie, and I’m so ashamed of this fact, but I haven’t met Kellan yet… or Gideon. Don’t hate me! I just haven’t made it there yet, but I will, one day. So I’ll replace them with some of my own. Christian Grey, Travis Maddox and Weston… I’d kill Christian… that dude has more issues than I do, it could never work. I’d screw Travis and enjoy every single moment of it. And I’d marry Weston, he’s so sweet, great in bed, and just the right amount of Alpha.
2. Do you remember the first romance book you ever read? Can you tell me about it? NOTE: I think mine was Bitch by Jackie Collins and I was about 10 or 11.
I actually wasn’t a reader until I was in my early 20’s. I feel like I cheated myself. But then I watched twilight, and then I read it. Books are always SO much better than the movies. Anyway, so began my love affair with reading. I read that whole series countless times. So much so that my husband thought I’d become obsessed *rolls eyes*. But the first indie romance that really left it’s mark on me was Beautiful Disaster. And the rest is history.
3. What type of stories would you like to write but haven’t yet? Menage, BDSM or a sexless romance. The sexless romance should come with a warning. Don’t you think?
Sexless romance… Uh no, I don’t think so. My mind is way too perverted, plus, to me sex is an essential part in the growth of a relationship. Therefore an essential part of my books. You can tell a lot about a person by how they are in the sack. Sometimes I fantasise about writing a mermaid book… something like Ariel and Prince Phillip, but sexy.
4. As you write series, what’s your process for keeping track of characters and storylines?
I am a self-confessed stationery addict, so I have more notebooks than I’ll ever need (but I’ll never stop buyingthem!).
When a storyline is born I like to write out a basic overview of it, then break down each character. You know like hair colour, eyes, style, that kind of thing. It helps me keep track of individual traits that I sometimes get mixed up on. Then as I’m going I jot down notes here and there just to keep things straight in my head.
5. If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone to it, who would it be? Celebrities, book boyfriends, intellectuals or anyone. Name five people.
Some of my dearest friends in the world live on the other side of the world and we’ve never actually met in person. Living in Australia when all my close author friends are in the US is irritating at best. I’d love more than anything to be able to sit down with them and chill out, drink wine, laugh and actually be able to embrace them. So I’d have to say, 1- Faith S Lynn. 2- T.J. Tims. 3- Stevie J Cole. 4- Jacqueline Ayres. & 5- Channing Tatum… shirtless… and serving our drinks then performing Magic Mike like dance moves for our viewing pleasure.
6. For bonus points, what’s your favorite swear word?
Shit. I say shit a lot. I drop the F-bomb a fair bit too, but I’m trying to cut back on that one since my 5 year old told our dog to fuck off the other day. #parentingfail
