In No Interest in Love, Hollywood’s hottest young actor hits the road to chase his big break—and discovers a leading lady where he least expected.
Please summarize the book for the readers here:
An up and coming actor wants to land a part in a movie playing opposite an actress famous for getting busy with her co-stars. He and his agent road trip to the audition and during an abundance of mishaps, they learn to not only tolerate each other, but to truly have feelings for one another.
Please share the opening lines of this book:
I was fifteen years old when I told myself I wanted to become an actor. I’d just gotten my ass kicked by Sonya Lopez’s older brother because I’d stood her up. And, yeah, I probably deserved it.
Please share a few Fun facts about this book…
- The train scenes were all written while I was on a train—which is why my MC gets a good case of motion sickness.
- The book is written entirely from the male point of view.
- It was originally titled, Off Line.
If your book was optioned for a movie, what scene would you use for the audition of the main characters and why?
The two leads have to sneak onto a train, and they end up in close quarters. It calls for fun dialogue and sexual tension, so of course I’d love to see the actors pull that off.
She shoves me into the opposite wall—before I can comment on bathroom logistics—where apparently there’s some sort of makeshift closet. Well, it’s got a hook for coats and it’s sort of tucked away. Enough that I can’t see the train hallway anymore. Shay squeezes up against me, and Woody goes, “Hey, a warm body!”
“Um, hello,” I say to her invading my space.
“Shh.” She pushes closer to me and there’s no hiding the horny bastard in my jeans. She jolts a little and meets my eyes with a cute drop of her jaw. I snort and shake my head.
“Well, get rid of it.”
“How do you suggest I do that?”
She wiggles, trying not to press against it while also staying out of sight, but she’s failing.
“That’s not helping,” I croak.
“How is it even . . . ?” She extends her forefinger so it’s pointing straight to the ceiling, and it cracks me up.
“Well . . . you’re close. And warm. And he’s not picky.”
What do you want people to take away from reading this book?
Love is unpredictable and laughter is the best medicine 🙂

When Jace Carver snags a minor part in his buddy’s zombie flick, he suddenly starts getting noticed all over the place. Even Hollywood megastar Carletta Ocean—known for her extensive “research” with her male co-stars—wants Jace for her new rom-com. The role could be a game-changer . . . if Jace nails the audition.
As Jace’s agent, Shaylene Kwak is all business, and isn’t about to let her favorite client blow this opportunity. Since their college years, Shay has been immune to Jace’s charm and rock-hard body. But long hours in close company have a way of wearing down even the best defenses, and when their platonic teasing turns into serious flirting, Jace and Shay are no longer able to resist what’s been right in front of them the entire time.
Shay knows Jace’s love-’em-and-leave-’em history with women. She’s not about to be just another notch in his belt. And it’s true, Jace has never wanted more than a one-night stand—until now. But at the end of the line, he’s got a choice: sleep with Carletta and seal the deal, or risk his career for a shot at true love with Shay.
