Welcome to Swoon Sunday where you get to meet some of our swoon-worthy heroes. Today we have a visit from Matt/Will Fray from Anya and the Shy Guy by Suze Winegardner.
Matt, how about you describe yourself for us?
I am totally unique in every way. Every single way. Well okay, I have an identical brother. *sighs* So, we both have darkish hair—neither really dark, or really light…like an inbetweeny color. We’re 5’10, although I swear I have a few millimetres on my brother, especially when my hair is longer. We both have murky gray eyes. My brother is excessively shy when he’s around anyone he doesn’t know. Me? Not so much. And that MIGHT have given the game away…
What’s your profession?
I am a student. At least I’m supposed to be. Right now, however, I seem to be a singer in the largest boyband in the country. I bet you hear that all the time don’t you?
Where do you call home?
Jacksonville, Florida. Or more technically, where I call home now is in a bunk, on a bus called The One, on tour with Seconds to Juliet. The bus also may or may not have a larger than life decal of the whole band with no shirts on. Thankfully, it’s my twin who had to pose for that one. *swipes forehead*
What kind of music do you listen to? (What song are you listing to on your iPod right now?)
Ah, crap. I’m listening to the first two albums of Second to Juliet. I’ve got to learn all the lyrics, because it turns out my idiot of a brother thought it would be fun to teach me all the wrong words. I’ll kill him. Seriously. Look away because you won’t want to be a witness to that!
Do you have a special skill?
Besides pulling the wool over 20 million Seconds to Juliet fans? Nope. My skill is trying to keep all my shit together without anyone getting into any trouble. Especially my brother.
What is your biggest dream/wish/desire?
For my brother to get better.
What’s your biggest regret?
Not strangling my brother with the umbilical cord when I had my chance.
What’s your darkest secret?
Ha! Aside from pretending to be someone I’m not?
What is your favourite movie of all time?
I’ve recently been introduced to the movie Cabaret, which totally legitimizes the fact that I have to wear make-up nearly every day.
What is one thing would you refuse to share?
Boxers or briefs?
Early bird or night owl?
Night, night, night. All the way night. When I get off stage, the adrenaline is spiking so hard, I just want to run and jump and fly off into the night to experience all it has to offer. It usually offers regrets if I have to get up early the next morning.
Thank you so much for joining us today!
About the book:
It’s always the quiet ones…
Anya Anderson doesn’t just need a big break, she needs any break. Living on the streets doesn’t leave a girl many options, so when she scores a gig reporting on the Seconds to Juliet tour, she jumps at the chance to earn enough money to sleep somewhere safe. And the paycheck will get bigger—and keep her off the streets for good—if she can dig up dirt on Will Fray, the irritatingly hot “shy guy” of the band.
Problem is, Will Fray isn’t who everyone thinks he is. In fact, he’s not Will at all. Matt, Will’s identical twin, is actually the guy onstage, reluctantly covering for his brother while he’s in rehab. To make matters worse, Matt’s being shadowed by a cute reporter with troubled eyes determined to get the scoop. On him. And he’s having trouble finding the willpower to keep his distance…
But if the secret gets out, it won’t just be his head on a platter—it’ll be the whole band’s.
This Entangled Teen Crush book contains steamy make out scenes, graphic language, and a love story so hot your copy may spontaneously burst into flames. You’ve been warned.
