Q&A with C.J. Lake
What makes Jamie and Sky such a great couple?
When the story begins, Sky is in a tough transition, finally coming to terms with the fact that her ski career is over after it had only just begun—and that she has to figure out what’s next. She has become somewhat negative and cynical, but when Jamie comes along with his easygoing, funny personality, he inevitably brings a positive energy to Sky’s life.
If you had to choose, what is your favorite scene?
Sky and Jamie have a confrontation about their whole “friendship” and what’s really been happening below the surface. It’s a pretty intense, sexy scene and I love that whole moment between them!
Do you have a music playlist for this book?
Yes! My #1 Jamie-Sky inspiration song is “Afterlife” by Ingrid Michaelson—but there are so many fun, romantic songs that remind me of their love! Like: “Want to Want Me” (Jason Derulo), “Sugar” (Maroon 5), “Boom Clap” (Charli XCX), “Riptide” (Vance Joy), “Classic” (MKTO), “Love Me Like You Do” (Ellie Goulding), and “Unconditional” (Katy Perry).
What are your must-haves while writing?
I’d like to say good lighting and espresso—but truthfully, I’ll write even when I’m out of espresso. Still…good lighting is a must and I will pretty happily settle for regular coffee.
What else should readers know?
Sky High is the third book in The Attraction Series. Like the other books in the series, Sky Highis a standalone novel—although characters from Constructing Us (Book 1) and A Hot Winter (Book 2) also appear, so readers can see how they’re doing! I had a lot of fun with this book, because Jamie is one-of-a-kind and I hope I captured that.
Coming up are Parts 2 & 3 of The Allnighter (My New Stepbrother). I recently released Part 1, which you can check out here: http://amzn.to/1cuDWZc Mick and Cady would be perfect together…if only the timing and circumstances weren’t so imperfect! The rest of their sexy and at times funny love story is coming soon…
Also, Let it Burn (Book 4 in the Attraction Series), is coming in 2016!
