Forgiven Spotlight Tour { Character Interview + Cover Reveal + Giveaway }


I'm such a fan of this series, don't forget to check out my review for Forgiven.

Blurb 

Everyone has a past…good or bad, they are always there. They lurk and linger in the shadows, sometimes reappearing at the most inconvenient times.

Gabby and Bradley thought that their pasts would remain dormant, that happiness was theirs for the taking. Still the strongest of relationships can be rocked by the ugliness from a previous life, even if it seems to be a world away. The fact remains an ugly past is never distant. It taints everything it touches, drives permanent rifts between loved ones, and sometimes can ruin everything. Gabby and Bradley must find the only way to battle the past. Forgiveness becomes a light through the darkness, a guide for the lost, and hope for the hopeless. With forgiveness comes bright, new beginnings.

Character Interview : Bradley Banks


1. Do you ever steal the shampoos and soaps from hotel rooms?
What kind of question is this?  I don't need to steal the shampoos and soaps from the hotel.

Nice job evading the question, Mr. Banks.  Have you ever done it?
(smirking) You noticed.  Only the ones that smell good.

2. Have you ever 'done it' in a public place before?
Geez, don't hold anything back. (Runs his fingers through his messy hair narrowing his eyes with a crooked smile) Maybe once or twice. (winks)

3. Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
I think that is a pre-requisite for teenage guys.

Is that a yes?
Yes.

Seriously?  I've never really just sat and thought about that.  I don't know if I'd say I like to use them, but I do use a lot of post-it notes.
