WHEN I PUT THE key he had given me in the door to his apartment it felt like the end of a long journey. Really it was only a little over twelve hours and I had stopped to nap once along the way, but it still felt like too long since I had seen his face or been able to touch all that toned and tattooed skin. Jimbo greeted me at the door when I pushed it open. His tongue lolled out of his mouth and he jumped up and put his paws on my legs. He was going to be huge when he finally grew into his fuzzy body and I was overwhelmed at how happy I was to see him. I dropped to my knees and rubbed my face in his neck as he licked me all over my face. I was obviously missed and I had to say it was just one more reason I knew I was finally where I was supposed to be. It was late, so the apartment was dark.

I checked the dog’s food and water, trying to be quiet in case Rowdy was already asleep. I was winding my way toward his bedroom when a haphazardly discarded sketch pad lying on the couch caught my eye in the dim light. I paused for a minute to pick it up and felt my heart stop and then start to race as I flipped through the first few pages. There were a couple of drawings that were obviously for clients, tattoos that hadn’t made it from paper to skin yet, but most of the pristine white pages were covered with images wearing my face. There was mermaid me, and naughty- sailor- girl me. There was sassy Indian girl me with long Pocahontas braids and there was sexy devil me standing next to angelic me. There were dozens of them all in different shapes and sizes, but every single image was undoubtedly modeled after my distinct look. I wasn’t sure if he had drawn them all over this last week while I had been gone or over the months we had been chasing each other in circles.

Either way it made my heart swell and the full certainty that I was it for him settle deep inside my bones. I set the pad down and tiptoed through the hall. Jimbo took one look at where I was going and huffed out a disgusted- sounding snort. The poor guy had learned early on that he wanted no part of what happened between his humans when they were together in the bedroom. The light was off and Rowdy was sprawled on his stomach across the covers. His blond hair was sticking up every- where and he hand one arm bent up under his head. The only thing that could have made the sight better would have been if he hadn’t bothered with the black boxers before crashing out.

Even with them obscuring the view, I couldn’t complain. I let out a breathless sigh and crept closer so that I could lean over and touch my lips to that anchor on the side of his neck. I felt his pulse leap and tasted the salt on his skin as he murmured sleepily and rolled over onto his back. Those infinitely blue eyes glowed at me in the dark as a grin pulled up the corner of his mouth.

About ROWDY:

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling Marked Men series continues with this sizzling, sexy story of love, heartbreak, fate, and second chances.

After the only girl he ever loved told him that he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his boots and set out to live up to his nickname. A good ol’ boy looking for good times and good friends, Rowdy refuses to take anything too seriously, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Burned by love once, he isn’t going to let himself trust a woman again. But that’s before his new co-worker arrives, a ghost from the past who’s suddenly making him question every lesson he ever learned.

Salem Cruz grew up in house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn’t wait to forget. But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her; the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who’d been head over heels in love with her little sister.

Now, fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.

Break the Sky by Nina Lane – Review!


A sizzling hot, new SPIRAL OF BLISS spin-off novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nina Lane

“Do you ever let go, storm girl?” he asked. “Ever lose control? Ever surrender?”
“Never,” I whispered. “I never surrender.”
A smile of both promise and warning curved his beautiful mouth.
“You will.”

Atmospheric scientist Kelsey March is under siege. Her tornado research project is on the skids and she’s fighting conflict in her university department. So when irresistible bad boy Archer West suggests a hot, wild fling while he’s in town, Kelsey is unable to resist his sexy offer.

Kelsey and Archer embark on a intense, exhilarating affair. But soon their differences and private battles encroach on their desire, and Kelsey discovers that Archer is a storm she can’t control.

V’s $0.02:

Break the Sky is the story of Kelsey and Archer- two very different people with two very different pasts. They meet randomly at a bar one night and things are never the same for either of them again.

Archer is one hot, sexy alpha male who is also so damn sweet, caring, funny and witty. You can’t help but fall in love with him. He’s also proof that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Or judge a person by his/her past. Kelsey is the complete opposite of Archer in every way. She’s a professor, more conservative and isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. Despite their differences, they work great together. They help each other really feel alive, find meaning in life and bring out the best in each other.

I loved the way Nina used the theme of “storms” and how she tied it all together with the theme. Kelsey is a “storm catcher”- besides being a professor, she chases real life tornados and storms for research. There is also reference to the “storms” of real life- the ones we experience as humans inside of us and those we experience around us. Kelsey and Archer have faced many “storms” in their lives- hardships and struggles- and they are there to help each other face them and survive them. I loved that I haven’t read another book similar to this.

Nina sure knows how to write sex scenes- they are hot and steamy. Archer knows what he wants and has no problem taking control. Kelsey has a hard time giving over and surrendering to him but once she does, she doesn’t ever look back. The chemistry between them is off the charts!

Overall, a great read!

Why do people even bother with weddings?

I know, that sounds insane coming from a
person who makes a living off creating decadent wedding cakes for the happy
couples. The crazy-in-love future Mr. and Mrs. are what keeps Dylan’s Sweet
Tooth afloat, and without weddings, I wouldn’t be able to afford my rent. Not
to mention the fact that if it weren’t for dumbass ex-boyfriend weddings,
there’s a chance I would’ve never have met Reese and I honestly can’t imagine
not having him in my life. But in my defense, I’ve never had to sit and listen
to hours of debating whether cotton-blend or silk napkins are the best choice
for my big day.

Until now.
Joey lets out an
irritated sigh and gestures toward the direction of my mother and soon-to-be
mother-in-law who are loudly arguing at my consultation table. “This shit makes
me want to drink at 9:00 a.m. How many times have I suggested to you that we
keep hard liquor in the back? We could totally make a drinking game out of this
I tilt my head up
to meet his eyes. “What, and take a shot every time one of them utters the
phrase, ‘this will be the wedding I’ve always dreamed of’? We’d be tanked
before the lunch rush.”
He nods, smiling
over his coffee cup. “Exactly, and we’d be completely oblivious to this
annoying discussion that you couldn’t care less about anyway.”
Joey’s right. I
really didn’t care what type of fabric the napkins were; I really didn’t care
about much of anything. I’ve pretty much left everything in the hands of my
trusted best friend who could plan a wedding wearing a blindfold. I only had a
few stipulations: the cake and my dress. That’s it. Napkins? Who the fuck cares
about napkins?
He slides closer
to me, dropping his voice to a hushed whisper although, with the noise level
currently booming through the bakery, I’ll definitely be the only one hearing
him. “I knew your mother was a little nutty when it came to marrying you off,
planning this shit since you were nineteen and all, but Reese’s mother is
bat-shit crazy. Did you hear her say she wanted to come out with us for your
bachelorette party? Can you imagine?”
I shrug once
before leaning against the counter. “I don’t even know what I want to do for
that. Maybe we’ll just have like a spa day or something and if that’s the case,
who cares if she tags along?”
His mouth drops
open, letting escape a loud, dramatic gasp. “Um, no. We will be going to a
strip club if I have to throw you over my shoulder and pull a Reese on you
myself. That’s what you do for bachelorette parties. Why the hell do my two
best friends not know that?”
“Excuse you. Juls’
bachelorette party didn’t involve any naked men, and we still had a great time.
Who says we have to go to a strip club?”
“I do,” he says
through a tense jaw. “The only reason I let that shit slide for Juls was
because I was in charge of babysitting her dumbass sister, and I knew I’d be
distracted if I had a bunch of dicks in my face.”
I arch my brow at
him. “Isn’t that a typical Saturday night for you?” We both chuckle together,
and my attention is suddenly drawn to my mother who is throwing napkins into the
sweetheart, silk or cotton-blend?” she asks, tapping her foot on the hard tile.
I flick my gaze
between the two mothers who are both silently pleading with me to pick their
choice. If I had to guess, I’d say my mother wants the silk, but Maggie Carroll
is giving off a bit of a fancy vibe right now. She’s head to toe in designer
clothing, which is screaming silk at the moment. Shit. I really don’t care one way or the other, but who the hell do I
side with on this one?
I grimace and nervously tap on the glass display
case. “Um, does it matter? They’re napkins. People are going to be wiping their
mouths with them.”
“It matters a
great deal,” Maggie says, picking up two napkin swatches and carrying them over
to me. “The silk is much more sophisticated. And given the location you’ve
chosen for the reception, I think that’s the one you should go for.”
“But the cotton
blend comes in this antique-white color that would go beautifully with the
pale-gray bridesmaids dresses,” my mother adds, joining Maggie’s side.
Jesus. Since when does it matter if the napkins match
the bridesmaid dresses?
I look back and
forth between the two of them before turning toward Joey. “Thoughts?”
“Nope. I’m afraid
you’re on your own there, cupcake.” He backs away and sips his coffee, leaving
me alone in my misery.
I reach out and
feel both choices between my fingers. “Um, well, I guess the cotton is most
likely cheaper? So, why don’t we go with that?”
Maggie gently
lays her hand on top of mine. “Oh, sweetie, money is not an issue. If you want
the silk napkins…”
“She just said
she wants the cotton blend,” my mother states with a firm tone. “Which I agree
with, sweetheart. Beautiful choice.”
“But, Helen, the
silk would be so much more… elegant.”
I drop my
forehead to my hands and groan my irritation while the two of them continue to
hash it out. Who cares about napkins! Am
I completely crazy for not giving a shit about this tiny, insignificant detail?
The guests could wipe their mouths on their coat sleeves for all I care.
This is how it’s
been for the past six months. Ever since Reese and I got engaged, our mothers
have been in a battle of who can plan the better wedding, and poor Juls and I
have been stuck in the middle, trying to rein in the madness. They’ve been so
crazy about this whole thing, I’ve found myself contemplating the benefits of a
Vegas wedding. Unfortunately, my soon-to-be husband is dead-set on marrying me
in front of all our families and is having no part of that discussion. Every
time I suggest he steal me away for a quickie wedding, he just shuts me up with
his mouth, or his cock. And because I’m weak with lust around that man, and
given the fact my head is sure to explode soon from all this momma drama, I
bring it up. Often.
The front door
chimes and I look up, smiling as my best friend strolls into the bakery. She
takes one look at the mothers waving napkin swatches into the air and
immediately goes into wedding-planner mode.
“Ohhhh, no. There
will not be any changes made. Give me those.” She snatches the napkin samples
from the two mothers who both stare at her with shocked expressions. This is
the Juls I know and love, the one who knows how to run shit. “This wedding is
happening in ten days, and all decisions are final. And really, the napkin
issue? Again?” She motions toward me with a crumpled-up napkin in her hand.
“The bride-to-be doesn’t care about the napkins. In fact, you two are the only
people I know who have ever cared
about the napkins. And I’ve planned over one hundred weddings. For the love of
God, let it go.”
My mother crosses
her arms over her chest and sneers at Juls. “You know what, Julianna? One of
these days, when you’re planning your daughter’s
wedding, you’ll care about the napkins.”
“I seriously
doubt that. Besides, I’m planning on having all boys.”
Maggie and my
mother grab their purses off the consultation table while Juls smiles in her
minor victory over the two of them. The moms both walk around the counter and
smother me with affection.
“We’re going to
go swing by the venue to take another look around,” Maggie says as she releases
me from a hug. “Now, don’t forget to let me know about the bachelorette party.
I’m all in.”
“Ha!” Joey yells
from the kitchen.
I smile and clear
my throat loudly, hoping to cover up the end of my dear assistant’s crack-up.
“Tell Mr. Carroll I said hello.”
My mother kisses
my cheek and smiles. “I’m sure the napkins you originally picked out will
“Mom,” I say in a
warning tone. “There’s still a chance I’ll convince Reese to cancel this whole
thing and get hitched in Vegas.” Her eyes widen, along with Maggie’s who
swivels in place to gawk at me. “Don’t push it.”
“That’s not even
funny,” she retorts, swatting at me with her clutch.
Once the two
wedding-obsessed mothers exit the shop, Juls lets out an ‘I’m glad I’m not in
your shoes’ chuckle and Joey reemerges from the back. I slouch back against the
counter top, feeling a Vegas wedding now more than ever. “I cannot wait until
all this is over with. How I’ve managed to survive the last six months without being
heavily-medicated or drunk off my ass twenty-four hours a day is beyond me.”
“Reese’s mother,
though she has impeccable fashion sense, is out of her mind. I am not having a
fucking chaperone at your bachelorette party,” Joey states with a shake of his
head. Apparently, keeping my future mother in-law away from whatever I decide
to do for my last night of freedom is his only concern.
Juls tosses the
napkin swatches into the trashcan, which will hopefully be the last time I ever
lay eyes on them. She returns to her spot on the other side of the display
case. “Speaking of which, what are we doing for that, anyway? You wanna go to
Clancy’s like we did for mine? That was fun.”
Joey slams his
hand down on the counter, gaining our attention immediately. “For fuck’s sake.
What the hell is wrong with you two? Spa days? Clubs that have been played out?
I wanna do things that I’ll be ashamed to tell people about. Let me live, damn
“I’m sorry, but
is this your bachelorette party? Did
Billy pop the question and you’ve decided to keep that information from us?”
Juls asks, biting back her smile. It cracks through and she winks at Joey whose
mood has suddenly waned, no doubt in response to the reminder that he isn’t
engaged yet.
He shrugs
dismissively. “Whatever. You bitches can celebrate with watered-down drinks and
facials. Just don’t be surprised if I bail on it.”
I slide closer to
him and wrap my arms around his waist, pressing my face into his shirt. Tilting
my head up, I see him smiling down at me. “I’ll choose something fun. You have
to be there; it wouldn’t be the same without you.”
“She’s right.”
Juls rounds the counter and mimics my position against Joey’s back. “We’d miss
you terribly, JoJo.”
He grunts above
us. “You’re lucky I’d do anything for either one of you.” Juls and I both
unlock our death grips from him and stand side by side. “But I swear to Christ,
there better at least be a cake shaped like a penis at this thing.”
“Chocolate or
vanilla?” I ask teasingly.
He smiles,
bending down and removing a half-empty tray of pastries from the display case.
“Chocolate. I’ve never had black dick.”
Juls and I both
chuckle as he walks toward the kitchen, giving us a scandalous eyebrow raise
over his shoulder.
“So, I have a favor to ask you.” Juls pulls me into the far corner
behind the bakery counter, clearly wanting to put distance between this favor
and Joey. Oh, Lord. My best friend
doesn’t ask me for many favors but when she does, they’re usually whoppers. A
certain wedding dress she made me try on months ago comes to mind. I motion for
her to spill it, and she eyes me up nervously. “Umm… so, Brooke got fired from
her job at that bank. Apparently, she was caught blowing one of the other
tellers during work hours.”
“Good Lord.”  That sounds
about right, though. Brooke Wicks was in the running for horniest bitch in Chicago, competing solely
with Joey.
“Yeah, she needs a job and
fast; otherwise, she’ll lose her apartment.” My eyes widen, the realization of
her favor hitting me. “And since you’re so busy at the shop…”
“No fucking way.”
 She fists both hands at her
side. “Oh, come on, Dyl. She’s having trouble finding something, and she’s been
looking for over a month.” Her face softens and she reaches out to me, pulling
my hand into hers. “Please? If she loses her apartment, she has to move in with
Ian and me. And that shit can’t happen. I love my sister, but I can’t live with
“What about moving back in with your parents?”
“Not an option. She and my mom would kill each other.” She pauses
and squeezes my hand gently. “I really want to help her out.”
Damn it. This has bad news written all over it, but I have trouble saying no
to Juls. She’s always been there for me. Always. I groan and her eyes light up.
“Fine. She can start Monday. But don’t think I won’t fire her just because
she’s your sister.” She pulls me into a hug with an excited squeal. I cringe as
Joey strolls through the doorway, coming from the kitchen. He grins, adorably
oblivious to the information that will surely send him into a shit-fit. “I
should really make you drop this bomb on him,” I mumble under my breath.
“Oh, relax. It’s not that big of a deal.”
“Yeah, okay. We’ll see about that.”
We both release each other and Juls spins on her heels, walking over
toward Joey and placing her hand on his shoulder. “Don’t freak out.”
His eyes widen with a curious fear. “If I don’t get my penis cake,
I’ll disown both of you. Nobody comes between me and my dick-shaped sweets.”
I walk up to him and brace myself for the reaction that is sure to
blow the roof off this building. “Joey. JoJo. Bestest friend.” He rolls his
eyes as I play with the string on my apron, wrapping it around my finger. “You
know how busy we’ve been lately with custom orders and all the spring weddings
coming up? It’s getting pretty crazy in here, and I think maybe it’s time I
hired another employee.”
“That’s fantastic.” His body relaxes and he glances between Juls and
myself. His brows set into a hard line. “Why the hell do I have a feeling I’m
about to regret those words?”
“Just remember how much you love us,” Juls says. “And this… addition
will allow you and Dylan to spend more time together. The benefits are sure to
outweigh any concern you might have.”
I pause, waiting to see if he’ll pick up on the clues that are
obvious to me. It only takes him a few seconds; the reaction spreads through
him like a wild fire.
He squeezes his eyes closed tightly, reaching up and rubbing his
temples with his fingers. “Please tell me this addition is a blind monkey,
because they would surely get more accomplished than who I fear you’re about to
“Brooke could be a good addition, Joey,” I state with a mild
“Are you insane? Why the fuck would you hire that mess?”
Juls shoves his arm. “Hey! She’s my sister, and she’s been through a
“A lot of what? Dick? Dylan, this is not a good idea.”
I limply shrug. I’m not at all surprised he’s reacting this way; in
fact, I predicted it. But, unlike Joey, I’m willing to give Brooke the benefit
of the doubt. And as long as she doesn’t try to molest him like the day before
Juls’ wedding, things shouldn’t get too hostile. I gotta give the girl a
chance. “She needs a job or she’ll lose her apartment.”
He throws his hands into the air. “Oh, I’m sorry. How is that our problem?”
“Joey,” Juls scolds. “Don’t be so rude.”
“She’s on a probationary period. If she messes up, I’ll fire her
without thinking twice about it. Right, Juls?”
She nods in my direction before turning back toward my heated
assistant. “Right. So, calm the fuck down, JoJo.” She makes a face at him and
he issues her his smile, softening her expression. “And a lot of dick? Like
you’re one to talk.”
The three of us start laughing, letting go of the stress of knowing
Brooke Wicks will soon be gracing us with her presence. This could actually be
a good thing. We are extremely busy, and having another employee means being
able to spend more time in my kitchen instead of ringing up customers. So, I’m
not going to let this worry me; I have enough stress with my upcoming wedding
to last me a lifetime.
Juls gives us both hugs before she exits the shop to go tackle a
bride. Just as a customer slips inside and makes her way up to the counter, my
phone beeps in my pocket. Joey gives me a smile, indicating he’s got things
handled and allows me to slip into the back.
Reese: What are you wearing?
I giggle as I hop onto a stool.
Me: Are you spanking it right now, handsome?
Reese: That depends on your answer.
I’m definitely not wearing anything worthy of a wank session. My
ripped skinny jeans and flour-covered apron have seen better days, so I let my
imagination take over.
Me: A skin-tight, pale-pink dress that stops just below my panty line.
Or, it would, if I was wearing panties.
Reese: You are such a tease. Do you have any idea how hard my dick is for
you right now? I could probably fuck you through a wall.
Me: It’s a shame you’ll have to handle that situation on your own. I’m
locked in consultations the rest of the day. Otherwise, I’d give you a hand. Or
a mouth.
Reese: You can handle my situation as soon as you get home. I want that
pussy wet and ready for me.
I smile, loving that dominant edge in every word he types.
Me: Always is.

No imagination needed

For Fallon (Chicago Syndicate #1) by by Soraya Naomi


We all have a façade, a concealed mask we wear to portray ourselves to the world.

Fallon’s mask is real, what you see is what you get. Growing up with two loving parents in Chicago, graduating in Chicago, and now working a job she loves, she enjoys her life.

Her untarnished world is shaken when Luca crosses her path.

Luca’s mask is tightly controlled. Distrust, rivalry, and violence rule his life.

When confronted with insecurities, when the one you love wears his mask perfectly, when your life unravels and you don’t know why, do you keep trusting the person you love?

Everyone has a façade. Everyone has an ulterior motive.

A Contemporary Romance/ Romantic Suspense in dual point of view. Contains sexual content and violence

Court’s $0.02:

For Fallon is Soraya Naomi’s debut novel and she definitely kicks this one out of the park!
“Perfect love does not exist. Love is one big imperfection”
Fallon lives in Chicago with her best friend, Teagan.  She’s a copyeditor at Charity Events and has a love for reading.
One night while out together at a club, Fallon can’t seem to shake a mysterious man.  After a few brief encounters there, she never expects to see him again.  Then they coincidentally meet the next day – at her usual jaunt to the coffee shop.
In Luca’s line of work, he must be aware of everything about a person.  But he is to never get involved with them.  Fallon becomes that one exception no more matter how much he wants to fit it.  She intrigues him.
“Redemption is not meant for men like me. Only a constant stream of retribution is what lies in my future.”
When Teagan has to move away for work, Fallon finds herself having more time to spend with Luca and slowly their relationship builds.  But can Luca keeps his true life a secret from Fallon.  Fallon definitely has her suspicions about him but isn’t sure what to truly believe.
Things really take off when we start to dig more into Luca’s life.  I was at the edge of my seat with all the suspense and action.  It’s interesting to see where things go and how everything start to fall into place.  And just when you think you know it all – something else is thrown into the mix.
“Never will be go back to just being Luca and Fallon.”
I love how Soraya wrote this in dual POV’s.  It definitely gives it a different flair to it but doesn’t deter from the story or make it any less enthralling.  It flows perfectly.  This has a perfect blend of romance, action and some steamy scenes.  Absolutely a great debut book for Soraya!
I can’t wait to see what happens in the next in this series.

Also.  Remind me to like pre-text you before I text you next time.  That was… um… awkward with my last text.
ANYWAY.  New to Kendall Ryan?  This is a good place to start.  Kudos to you.  Not new to Kendall Ryan?  This is a good place to continue.  Kudos to you.
So I did the same thing as you… I read the synopsis and was like “Wha?  Kendall is writing about buying an intact hymen for $1 million?”  Ha.  Don’t worry… well she kind of did, but kind of didn’t.  OMG.  This review is not going well so far.
Can I just say here it’s a good book and go buy it?  No?
Alrighty then.   So in true Kendall form, she attacks sex topics with an upper hand and beats off one helluva story.
Damn.  This still is not going well.
Whatever.  Read the book.  I loved it.  Like usual.

Exclusive Teaser ONLY AT LOVE N. BOOKS:


I bend down to whisper near her ear, careful that my brothers don’t overhear. “I quite enjoyed my cock in your mouth last night.”

She swallows and lets out a tiny gasp, inaudible to anyone but me. The sound makes my dick flex in my pants. Fuck.

I raise one hand and stroke her cheek with the back of my knuckles. “You’re really good at sucking cock, you know that, right?”

I check her eyes for her reaction, but this information looks like news to her. Okay, so maybe she’s just good at sucking mine. Even better news. Her cheeks are rosy and pink and her eyes dart around me, checking to see if my brothers are listening to us. They are, but I’m sure they’re acting like they’re not.

She licks her lips, completely unaware at how erotic that sight is to me. Is it possible to golf with a raging erection? Apparently I’m about to find out.

FBL series teaser with dates

Jase Dean Up Close and Personal with Love N. Books




Well, well, well… look what we have here.  Finally an interview with the ever-popular Jase Dean.  The Master of Ceremonies of Love N. Vegas 2014.  Jase was kind enough to let me hit him with a quick lightening round of questions and then expanded into questions from some of his fans.

I’ve gotten the opportunity to begin working with this piece of work… piece of artwork or piece of comedy… you pick… but either way, he’s a pretty incredible guy and I’m thrilled that we have begun working very closely to bring him to you on book covers and events.

enjoy gals…

Oh, and Jase?  Good luck capturing our selfie.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Ice cream!! (& oral sex).

What’s your most frequently played song on your iPod?
I’ve recently discovered ‘Sound cloud’ & LOVE it! I just listen to the House mixes while training (& of course Buble’ & the Stereophonics while chilling out).

Who is your go-to person after a bad day?
My dogs… They understand me haha!

What is the most embarrassing thing you have done or had done to you?
A professional never tells ;) (I’m sure it will all come out eventually).

Craziest fan moment?
Not crazy in a bad way but a fan drew me & another bought the drawing for a substantial amount. Definitely more humbling than crazy.

Commando, boxers, or briefs?
Commando but briefs on shoots.

Screamer, moaner, or silent?
Moaner but I’ll make her scream at the end.. joker.

One word to describe yourself.

Biggest turn on?

Biggest turn off?
Smoking (& hairy downstairs).
[Duh Jase. No one likes a dirty basement.]

Biggest pet peeve?

Tell me one thing most people don’t know about you.
I’ve been single for 6 years.

Ever been caught doing the dirty?  Do tell.
Yeah.. I’m not proud but was a bit of a bad boy in my past..

Who is your celeb crush?
Mila Kunis.

What kind of date would you plan for your girl?
When I really like a girl I’m a real romancer haha! I’d secretly dig with her friends, find out what she’s into & make it happen but I’d make it look effortless & unplanned. She’d remember the date for sure.

What’s your favorite part of a girl’s body?
I’d say ass… But I do love that bit to the side of her tummy, not quite to her ribs, that when you kiss there her whole body trembles..

What is your favorite position?  You know… POSITION.
Only me & that girl will know.

Obviously fans want to know if you’re single….
Yeah, still single, I’m just too damn picky..

What do you want to know about me?  One chance to ask.
Your profile says something about ‘porn’ are/have you been in porn?
[Porn? Moi? No. I just watch it.]

Who is the most famous person you’ve met?
I don’t know actually… I really don’t get excited about ‘celebrities’ etc. I met Dorian Yates a few weeks back out in Marbella. That was pretty awesome as he was a childhood inspiration when I was just starting out in gyms.

Best hidden talent?
It’s quite depressing to say, but I don’t have any that I’m aware of..

What’s your one clothing item you can’t live without?
I’m a total beach bum at heart so I’d have to say boardies or flip-flops.

Ever modeled nude?
Yeah… But always cropped or posed in a way that you can’t see ‘little Jase.’

First thing you do in the morning when you wake up?
That depends on if I’m alone or not… I’m a ‘morning person.’

Last thing you do at night before going to bed?
Again, that all depends on if I have company…

What’s the first thing you are going to do when you arrive in Vegas in October?
There’s a few people I owe a big hug to, so I’ll be looking to hand those out.

Where can fans find you?  (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram,etc.)

Fan Question/Answer Session With Jase


What do you do for cardio workouts? Being a runner can get a little boring. Any ideas to change it up?
I’m personally a big fan of HIIT, High Intensity Interval Training. Great for burning fat & getting the blood & adrenaline pumping. But when I need to tone it down, I guess my favourite is walking the pups… headphones in, forget everything, walk for miles & get lost in thought…

How do you stay motivated to stay in shape?
I just hate the thought of losing or letting people down… that motivates me enough.

What is your favorite thing about being a fitness model? Least favorite?
my favourite thing is all this, the travelling, meeting new people & the indirect help, inspiration & motivation I give to others by posting my ramblings

My least favourite is the negative judgement & jealousy.

What is your favorite food when you have a splurge day?
Pizza followed by Ben & Jerrys.

What were you doing before you became a model and how did you finally become one?
An electrician & I didn’t set out to be a model. I helped a friend at a charity event & it kinda snowballed from there, & as they say, the rest is history.


What is your dream woman? What qualities must she have to catch you attention?
I’ll let you know when I find her.. As for qualities, confidence I find sexy as hell. I love headstrong & empowered women, that have drive & ambition. You can’t help but respect that. Oh, & she needs to have a great ass & nice teeth haha.

Are you more attracted to blondes or brunettes?
I tend to go more for brunettes as I like tanned/olive skin. But that’s not to say I am off put by blondes.

Do you currently have your eyes on someone? No names of course.

What was your worst date?
I was chatting to a girl for a while online… yup, you guessed it.. we met. She wasn’t even the chick from the pictures haha yes, the great Jase Dean was catfishes..

What’s the best pick up line you’ve ever heard?
I was out & really couldn’t get into the swing of the night & a girl came over & said “you’re too hot to not be having fun. I’m going outside to my car & going for something to eat. I think you should join me..” The sheer confidence drove me wild.

Do you date much? If yes, what do your dates/girlfriends think of all your Jase obsessed fans?
I don’t really get to date much due to being so busy. If it’s a girl I’ve just met & she doesn’t know what I do, I don’t tell her. If she does, then she has to understand that she has to share to speak.

When did you lose your virginity?
Just before my 14th birthday.

Does being a public figure (and a damn good looking one at that) make your dating life easier? Harder? More exciting? Totally exhausting?
If I were that kind of guy I could totally take advantage of my position, but I don’t. I think what I do scares the nice girls away, but then again, I wouldn’t know what to do with a nice girl..


Are you ever going to leave the UK?

Geordie or Scouser?
Neither… But if I had to, Geordie.

If you could do one thing over in your life, what would it be?
I’d have started modeling earlier.

What does your mom say about what you do?
As long as I’m happy & not hurting anyone, she’s happy. But my Grandma is my biggest fan. She loves my work haha.

What does your daily routine consist of? That includes weekends
mostly training, castings, photoshoots, networking. I’m always working, Even if I’m not physically at work, I’m networking via social media.

Are you doing any personal appearances in the UK?
Nothing booked as yet.

How many butterfly tattoos do you have?

Favorite type of music?
I literally have a love for all music. It just depends what I’m doing as to what I listen to.

If you could have a superpower what would it be?
What do you mean ”if”?…

What in your opinion is your best quality or biggest strength?
Finding a positive in a negative. (& looking great naked).

How would you describe yourself in 3 words or less? How would your friends describe you in 3 words or less?
Trustworthy. Loyal. Goof…. a. Dick. Head

What is the biggest misconception people have about you that is made by people who see photos of you but don’t actually know you?
I’ll ask you guys that after we’ve met in Vegas..

Bed, floor, wall or shower?
I’m guessing you mean sex? If so, yes, all are great. But I‘m an outdoors boy… ;)

Favorite funny movie?
How to Lose a Guy in 10 days & pretty much anything with Adam Sandler or Jim Carey.

Do you like to read? If so, what type of books?
I don’t get as much time as I’d like to be able to read but yes I do enjoy it & I like autobiographies of interesting people.

How did you come across Vinnie and Duke? Did you adopt them from a pound or buy them?
Duke is a rescued pup & Vinnie actually belongs to my ex but we’re like best friends now & as Duke & Vin are so close we didn’t want to separate them & she only lives like a mile away & has a key to call in when she likes.

What is the craziest thing that’s happened to you while meeting a fan?
I must admit I literally think I am the luckiest guy ever with my fan base. They are all amazingly supportive & just generally amazing. Although, we’ll see after Vegas haha.

What are you getting as your new back tattoo and when are you getting it?
You’ll see when it’s done ;)
