Five Facts About James
by T.A. Moore
First of all, thank you so much for having me! I’m thrilled to be here with my stand-alone contemporary suspense Every Other Weekend. Every now and again an author (or at least THIS author) gets characters who drop fully formed and already opinionated into your brain. It happened with my Digging up Bones series, and again with Clayton and Kelly (and Baker, who was so much to write for that he has to get an honourable mention) in this book. Trust me, this was originally meant to be a much sillier book. There were hijinks planned, but Clayton almost immediately established he wasn’t into the ‘jinks.
Anyhow, I thought that since I loved these guys so much? You guys might like to learn a few important bits and pieces about them. Today? James, the soon-to-be-ex that Clayton is helping his client get rid off.
Five Facts about James
- James met his wife, Nadine, when she was a waitress in a local bar, one of the dozens of pretty blondes who’d were on the verge of aging out of the big break slot. She’d agreed to go out with his friend, so James set out to win over to…prove he could. He was charming and fun, silly sometimes, and it won her over. Once he did, he sent photos of her naked to his jilted friend. ‘Accident,’ he claimed. ‘Still, stop him sniffing around right?’
- He never wanted kids, but once she got pregnant he never pushed for an abortion. Talked to her for three days about what a disaster it would be for them to have a kid now, like for fucksake it would be an anchor around their neck, and left her an envelope of cash for ‘whatever she decided’. Once Nadine said he wanted the baby though, he let it go. Took the money back, though.
- Although James was never particularly interested in his son when Harry was a baby, there was a period when he was a toddler that James was really enamoured of him. It wore off as Harry got older and wasn’t exactly the son that James wanted.
- Sometimes he tells a lot of lies. He justifies this to himself, as much as he justifies anything, by the fact Nadine never asks about them. If she really wanted the truth, after all, she’d pry more.
- He doesn’t think he’s a bad guy.
About Every Other Weekend
Divorce lawyer Clayton Reynolds is a happy cynic who believes in hard work and one-night stands. He also believes that being an excellent lawyer means he never has to go home to the miserable trailer park where he grew up and that volunteering at a women’s shelter will buy off the conscience that occasionally plagues him. So when Nadine Graham comes in with a broken arm and a son she desperately wants to protect, Clayton can’t turn down their plea for help.
Taking the case means appealing to investigator “Just Call Me Kelly” for help. That wouldn’t be so bad if Kelly weren’t a hopeless romantic… and the hottest man Clayton’s ever met.
Kelly has always had a crush on the unobtainable Clayton Reynolds. He agrees to help, even though he has enough on his plate with the motherless baby his widowed brother left him to care for.
As Nadine’s case turns dangerous and the two seemingly opposite men are forced to work together, they discover they have a great deal in common—but solving the case and saving Nadine’s life might cost Kelly everything.
