Welcome to Swoon Sunday where you get to meet some of our swoon-worthy heroes. Today we have a visit from Nathan Strong from Abby and the Cute One by Erin Butler
Nathan, how about you describe yourself for us?
I’ll break it down for you like all the teen mags do.
Hometown: A little town in PA no one has ever heard of
Favorite song on debut album: “The One”
Turn ons: Drive and passion
His dream date: A night under the stars.
Quote to live by: “Seize the moment.”
Basically, that’s me in a nutshell, but you’ve only skimmed the surface. 😉
What’s your profession?
Most people would call me a pop star, but I kind of hate that terminology. I prefer just plain old singer. I like to make people feel things through music.
What kind of music do you listen to? (What song are you listing to on his iPod right now?)
I listen to anything and everything. Recently, I’ve been listening to a lot of Abby Curtis while she works on her new album. It’s amazing. (It really is, I’m not just saying that because she’s my girl.) I’ve also been listening to “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding on repeat. Then there’s Rachel Platten, Christina Perri, my boys One Direction, fun., Coldplay, Michael Jackson…I could go on and on. Music is my life.
What is your biggest dream/wish/desire?
I’m living my dream. I get to share my soul with the world through music. I couldn’t ask for anything more.
What would be your idea of an ideal vacation?
A private island, preferably somewhere warm and where the paparazzi can’t come. I’d love to stay a few weeks after the tour on that island living in a beach bungalow steps from beautiful turquoise water so I can decompress.
Describe the craziest thing you have done.
Tried out for Rockstars: Live! But look where it got me. I owe everything I have to that show. It proves you should do the thing that scares you the most. It’ll give you the biggest rewards.
What is one thing would you refuse to share?
Whether I wear boxers or briefs. It’s funny because that’s what all the reporters seem to want to know!
Froot Loops or Lucky Charms (or both)?
No competition. Lucky Charms.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Paparazzi who won’t stay out of my business.
Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy touring schedule to join us, Nathan. And now a small teaser from Abby and the Cute One…
He leaned toward her, and she stepped back until she bumped into the wall. He placed his palms on either side of her shoulders, capturing her between his intense gaze and the understanding that they shouldn’t be doing this.
About the book:
He’s cute. He’s famous. And he could ruin everything…
Every member of Seconds to Juliet has a girlfriend-except for Nathan Strong. Now the band’s manager is leaning hard on “The Cute One” to play the role of the band’s heartthrob. With the band’s sales in decline, it’s up to Nathan to keep the fans’ fantasy alive.
The plan is to stage a fake relationship and a fake breakup, and then let the fans fight to be the one to mend Nathan’s broken heart. Just one problem. There’s another girl in the picture-one Nathan can’t stay away from. In private, Nathan’s stealing kisses with the band’s new opening act, Abby Curtis.
If they’re caught, no one wins. Abby will be fired, and the band might not recover the success they need to survive. But even with the pressure mounting, Nathan and Abby can’t stop themselves from stealing one more touch, one more kiss. And it’s only a matter of time before it all falls apart.
This Entangled Teen Crush book is as forbidden as the secret romance it contains! It has hot kisses, graphic language, and extreme misbehaving. DO NOT GET CAUGHT WITH THIS BOOK…unless you want everyone to know you believe in true love.
