For Reading Reality’s first ever character interview, let’s all welcome Seraphina Donavan and the hero of her delicious (if you don’t believe me, read the review here) story Bad Girl Lessons, Jackson Cope, to the “pages” of Reading Reality.
Seraphina: Jackson, thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk with us today.
Jackson: (With a cheeky grin) Well, Evie does tend to keep me occupied, not that I’m complaining.
Seraphina: You and Evie Harper might be perceived as an odd couple. What do you say to people who think that you’re corrupting the innocent?
Jackson: (Shrugging) They’re not wrong. But as this particular innocent is well over the age of consent and doesn’t seem to mind one bit, I tell them to mind their own damned business.
Seraphina: You’ve got quite a history around town as a ladies man. Any qualms about settling down with just one woman?
Jackson: Not one woman. The woman. The only one that matters.
Seraphina: Oh, you’re good.
Jackson: (He laughs in response) Or good at it. Depends on who you’re talking to, I guess. Seriously, Evie is it for me. Always has been and always will be. So, doesn’t matter what people think or what people say. The only thing that matters to me at the end of the day is that she’s happy and we’re together.
Seraphina: (At this point I had to stop and fan myself a little. He’s just so hot and he says the SWEETEST things). You and Evie had something of an unusual courtship. I believe there were lessons on being bad? How did that come about?
Jackson: Evie wanted to know what it felt like to walk on the wild side. And I sure as hell wasn’t going to let anyone else teach her. Turns out my sweet, little Evie was a vixen all along.
Seraphina: So tell me about a perfect day in the life of Jackson Cope…
Jackson: (With a wide grin) Well, I’d wake up with my girl, and being a gentleman, I’m not going to tell you what would happen next. Suffice to say, it might be a while before I actually roll out of bed. Me and my buddy Reed would go fishing, which is really just an excuse to tell lies and drink beer. Then we’d pack up and head home. I’d get cleaned up, since Evie doesn’t care too much for the smell of the creek bed these days, then we’d go out to dinner and I’d end my day just like I started it… in bed with my girl. Life doesn’t get much better than that. Unless, of course, it’s football season.
Seraphina: Thanks for talking with me today, Jackson. And before you go, can I just say that Evie Harper is one lucky woman because you are gorgeous from head to toe.
Jackson doesn’t say goodbye as he leaves. He just tosses me a wink and another cheeky grin as he heads out the door. What is it about those Southern boys? My, oh my!
All I can say is that Seraphina was very lucky to conduct that interview! But if you want to see what all the fuss and fanning was about, your opportunity is right here. As part of the BTS Virtual Book Tour, Seraphina will be giving away a copy of Bad Girl Lessons to one lucky winner. So one lucky reader will be able to find out for themselves. (If you’re not the lucky winner, just buy the book. This was a terrifically fun read!)
