Author Saturday Spotlight: Riley Hart *Interview and Giveaway*





Riley Hart, the author of the Blackcreek Series and one of the top 3 best menage's I have ever read is my Spotlight author this Saturday. I am a huge fan of hers and I can't tell you enough how exquisite her writing is!

I am a big menage fan and I struggle daily with finding ones that are written as wonderfully as Broken Pieces is. I gave it a 5 star rating on Goodreads and on Amazon. In case you missed it here's that review:

I want to give it more than 5 stars! SOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOOOOD! I can't do this book justice in a review! You have to read it to truly understand. I had a book hang over after this was done. I didn't know what to do with myself! The characters were all shattered and at one point you're like, "Can they make it?" There is no simple answer. I don't have a favorite character which is weird. I always do. I fell in love with all of them! I think this is the best Menage book I've ever read. I am SO picky about my menage books so Riley Hart really became a favorite author very quickly. I can't wait for the sequel! 

If you haven't read it already I highly recommend you do!

Blurb:

Can three broken pieces make a whole?

Josiah Evans is the orphan who lost both his parents. He’s sweet, shy, and all heart. He wants nothing more than to be loved.

Mateo Sanchez is the son of a gang leader. He’s seen it all, and never hesitates to do what needs to be done, no matter what it is.

Tristan Croft is the wealthy attorney who clawed his way up from the bottom to rule his own world. He’ll never depend on anyone but himself again.

Three men who couldn’t be more different…and yet, as their lives intersect they find an uncommon balance that calms the storms inside each of them, and ignites fires hotter than they ever thought imaginable.


Told uniquely in three parts and spanning over ten years, BROKEN PIECES is a journey of healing for three fragmented souls, finding love in the unlikeliest of places—with each other.
 



Riley Hart's ability to write sexy, hot story lines and  tales with outstanding plot is not  a small feat. Very often, authors sway toward the sex and can't hold on to the intriguing plot. I have never had this problem with a Riley Hart book.

Collide is book 1 in the Blackcreek series... I have always loved the idea of friends falling in love. They know the path you've walked and often, have held you up to get where you're going. Friends like that are rare. Now to have that friend up and disappear, only to see them 17 years later? WOW! we need answers, right? THAT IS COLLIDE!


Blurb:


At ten years old, Noah Jameson and Cooper Bradshaw collided mid-air when they dove for the same football. For three years, they were inseparable…until one day when Noah and his parents disappeared in the middle of the night.

Noah and Cooper never knew what happened to each other. Now, seventeen years later, after finding his boyfriend in bed with another man, Noah returns to Blackcreek looking for a fresh start. And damned if he doesn't find his old friend grew up to be sexy as sin. Coop can’t believe Noah—the only person he trusted with the guilt over his parents’ death—is back. And gay… Or that Cooper himself suddenly wants another man in his bed for the first time.

There’s no denying the attraction and emotion between them, but can they overcome the ghosts of their pasts to have a future together?

This title contains two strong, sexy men, and a passionate friendship that transforms into a sizzling hot romance.


It's as good as it sounds!!!!

Book 2 of the Black creek series AND TODAY'S GIVEAWAY!!!! Is STAY. 

Blurb:

Wes Jensen just lost the sister who raised him, and gained custody of his niece. The last thing he needs to add to his full plate is dealing with Braden Roth, the one-night-stand who continues to try to push his way into Wes’ life. He has a kid to raise now, and Wes isn't great at getting close anyway.

Braden has never had a woman or a man sneak out on him the morning after. From the start, Wes intrigues him, and Braden isn't one to deny himself something he wants. And he wants Wes. The more time he spends with Wes and the little girl who constantly keeps them on their toes, the more Braden realizes this isn't just about getting the guy who walked away.

As their lives intertwine more and more, Wes discovers Braden isn't as shallow as he thought. But after everything Wes lost in his life, he isn't sure he can risk his heart, and truly want Braden to stay—and if he did, would Wes’ quiet life be enough for Braden?
 


At the end of this post your chance to win STAY will be yours!!!! Be sure to enter. 

***INTERVIEW***

1. You have a new book  The second in the Blackcreek series called Stay, which is so exciting, can you maybe tell us a bit about this book?

Sure! It's about a man, Wes, who loses his sister and gains custody of his niece. He's a little closed off because he's lost so much in his life but Braden isn't one who will take no for an answer. He's loyal, and has a huge heart and he works his way past Wes's defenses. It's a sexy romance but it's also about family, and learning to move forward. 

2.  How do you make sure the information for your nonfiction books is accurate and up-to-date? 

Researching whatever I need on the internet. 

3. Broken Pieces was in a post I had a few weeks back as a Top 3 All Time Favorite Menage book. I meant that so very much. How did you make this menage so successful? It's so well written, you nailed the psychology of it as well as the emotion.

I don't know! LOL. I was nervous I didn't get it right. I think it's important for each person in a menage to play a roll--not to just be there, to be there. With my three guys, they each bring something very specific to the table, something they can do for the others that no one else can, so it's equal ground. They're all needed to make the whole.

4. Can you tell us about the sequel at all?

It's called FULL CIRCLE. The guys have come a long way but they still have a ways to go. Things weren't magically fixed at the end of BROKEN PIECES but they're together, and working toward their happiness.

5. What inspires you?

Life…love. I'm a romantic. I live and breathe romance. It's my little piece of happiness I can put into the world to hopefully make people smile.

6. How do you find or make time to write?

I make time. It's important to me so I steal whatever time I can, even if it's 20 minutes here and there.

7. Can you tell us anything about any future projects you are working on?

I'm working on FULL CIRCLE right now. After that will be the third book in the Blackcreek series.

8. What do you like to read in your free time?

Romance mostly. I read a lot of m/m. I read both adult and YA books too.

9. How do you begin a novel? What's your process.

I loosely plot out some things. I know my people pretty well and then I just write. I did more plotting for Broken Pieces because so many things had to fit together to make it work the way it needed to.

10. How can your readers follow you (Social media) to keep up with your books and career?
