I’m back with Cash and Nicola for the second part of their character interview! If you didn’t read the first character interview, you’ll want to read that first!
Now let’s jump back into our ongoing conversation with Cash and Nicola…
Cristin: So, let’s change things up. Cash, you have complete free rein. Five questions that you like Nicola to answer.
Cash: You ready, Sweet Girl?
Nicola: Give it your best shot. I’m ready. (whispering) Kinda.
Cash: Softball question, what’s better? Chocolate or ice cream.
Nicola (big smile): S’mores.
Cash: Not one of your options.
Nicola: Yet, it is still the right answer. Favorite thing ever.
Cash: I thought I was your favorite thing ever.
Nic (rolls her eyes): Alright now.
Cash: S’mores or sex?
Cash: Right answer.
Nicola: That’s not what I meant!
Cristin: Okay, don’t embarrass the girl to death.
Cash: Question number two, why are you so nervous to tell Roman about us?
Nicola: My brother still sees me as a little kid. And you haven’t helped matters over the years. Pretty sure you and Roman threatened any guy who ever looked at me.
Cash (shrugs): We can just call that mission accomplished. Did you know we’d be together?
Nicola: Did you?
Nicola: Oh, I’m not sure I believe you. But I like it.
Cash: Finish the sentence: My favorite part of the day is…
Nicola: Waking up next to you.
Cash: I’m going to say that’s the wrong answer. Maybe more like when you head to bed with me.
Nicola: You are awful!
Cash: Okay, what is this, question number four? Um, what kind of job do you want to have after school?
Nicola: Something that means something.
Cash: Like, what, a teacher?
Nicola: Maybe a spy…
Cash: You can be whatever you want to be. So long as you stay safe.
Nicola: Alright, Mister Overprotective.
Cash: Last question, what’s one thing you think I don’t know about you?
Nicola: That I’m just as protective over you as you are of me.
Cristin: That wasn’t so bad. Thanks you guys for hanging out and answering questions. You two are very sweet. I’m not going to say things will be easy for you, but there’s always a happy ending somewhere.
A SWEET GIRL
Nicola Hart grew up under the heels of her older brother and his sexy best friend, Cash Garrison. Years of ignoring her spark with Cash has transformed their friendship into a slow burning sizzle. One night with him could ruin everything. Or it could be more than she ever dreamed. They play. They flirt. But they haven’t crossed the line because too much is at stake. Family. Friendship. And the deepest kind of love that she’d have to be crazy to walk away from.
HE CAN’T STAY AWAY FROM
She’s his best friend’s little sister. The definition of hands off. Cash has tried to ignore her for years. Those innocent eyes and her smile that screams kiss-me-if-you-dare… Instead, he’s looked at every pretty little thing who’s crossed his path, all to ignore the girl he seems destined to want. But when his hard partying ways get old and everyone at school is interested in Nicola, it’s time to stake a claim. To make Nicola his girl, no matter the risks, and hold the hand of the one he really loves.
Sweet Girl is the novel length prequel to USA Today bestselling Garrison’s Creed. Before Cash and Nicola can fall in love forever, they have to suffer through their first love.
