Rowdy by Jay Crownover Character Tour with Cora & Giveaway

I'm so excited to be part of
Jay Crownover's Rowdy Character Tour!  
Keep reading for Cora's interview!
ROWDY Synopsis:
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.

 Rome interviewing Cora 

Rome picks her up and lifts her over the desk so that she is sitting on the edge while he falls back in his office chair. He puts his hands on her tattooed thigh and tilts his head back so that he can look up at her now that she is above him: Does the difference in our size ever bother you? I mean I know you seem a lot bigger than you are because of all that attitude but really you’re just pocket sized.

She scowls at him playfully: No. You only manhandle me when I ask really nicely so I generally don’t even think about it. At first you were overwhelming. You just seemed to be everywhere, but that was more because you were taking over all the space in my head and my heart, not because you’re a giant and hog the bed.

He snorts and traces the design inked onto her leg with his finger: You like that you get to sleep on top of me. It pissed you off the entire time you were pregnant with Remy that you kept rolling off cause your belly got in the way.

Cora: Do you think your brother would be happy we picked his name for her?

Rome with an odd look on his face: I know he would. It was the only choice to make. (She’s asked him to explain that before but he always tells her that he can’t. Since he almost died for her she lets him keep that one, tiny thing to himself)

Rome rolling his chair closer so that she has to move her legs apart to make room for him as he puts his hands around her waist: So do you ever wonder what would have happened if all your impulsive decisions had backfired? Like what if I had decided you were a crazy bitch when you dumped that beer on my head or if things with Orlando had totally blown up? You take risks with other people’s emotions and lives that could really be devastating if they don’t work out in your favor, Half-Pint.

Cora reaches out and puts her hands on his shoulders and leans forward so that she can rest her cheek on the top of his head: I had to do it…well maybe not pour the beer on your head. That was just because you pissed me off so bad I couldn’t see straight and if you had decided I was a crazy bitch you wouldn’t have been wrong. I didn’t know you at all, but there was something about you…even that early that had me acting all kinds of crazy. Maybe it was pheromones. As for Lando I knew going in it was a major risk for both Shaw and I to make. I had my fingers crossed the entire time, but he’s such a good guy and he loved your brother so much I just had a gut feeling it would all work out. He needed to be part of the family.

Rome: He is.

Cora: I know and that’s why I can’t love you any more than I already do. You are a hard man, Rome, but underneath it all you are all heart.

He grunts at her and pulls her off the desk so that she is set firmly in his lap. Yep, there are things about Rome that are very hard!: You gonna let me keep putting kid’s in you?

Cora with a laugh as he starts pulling at her clothes: If they all turn out as adorable and as wonderful as Remy, you know it. She is the greatest gift you could ever give me.

Rome: She is the best thing next to you that has ever happened to me…did you lock the door when you came in here?

Cora: Of course I did, Big Guy. I knew I was going to have to put out in order to get you to agree to do this.

Rome: Damn straight….now it’s my turn to have fun.
