An Interview with Ty and Zane

Here at Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews, we are ALL HUGE FANS of our action heroes Ty and Zane. So we compiled a few questions… SooOoo excited to have the boys with us here at SSBR!

lineDivider_1

Welcome Ty and Zane to Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews and for taking time out from your busy schedule to answer a few questions for us today. We hope our questions won't frighten you off, but I guess for two tough guys like yourselves this will be a walk in the park compared to everything else you have been through together.

Ty: I don’t want to be here right now.

Zane: He means thank you for having us!

lineDivider_1

Ty, your family is just awesome. We all love them, especially grandpa Chester and his shovel.  What we would like to know is who of them do you look up to the most? Or are they all important to you for various reasons?

Ty: They’re my family, of course they’re all important to me. My grandfather is a hero. My dad taught me almost everything I know. My mom is still the only person who can keep me in line. And my brother is the most resilient, determined person I know. They’re all inspiring.

lineDivider_1

How did you feel Ty when Granddad Chester outed you to the family? A particularly hilarious moment for us readers, but I’m sure you must have wanted the earth to swallow you up?

Ty: I was scared shitless.

Zane: Ty, I don’t think you can cuss on this blog.

Ty: Shirtless?

lineDivider_1

Seriously, Zane, what did you think when you saw dishevelled, brash, grumpy Tyler Grady for the very first time?

Zane: I thought, ‘Asshole.’

Ty: I thought we couldn’t cuss on this blog!

lineDivider_1

And what were your first impressions when you met Ty's family?

Zane: They felt like home. They were warm and welcoming, in their own way. I was comfortable there.

lineDivider_1

Ty… We loved your British accent when you were undercover in Fish & Chips… How difficult was it trying to stay in Character as a Brit?

Ty: The differences in slang always trip me up. The accent’s not so hard once you get going.

lineDivider_1

And Zane… what took you so long to give him the necklace?

Zane: I was waiting for the right time.

lineDivider_1

How do you cope with the fact that you both face danger everyday putting your lives on the line for each other and still be in a relationship?

Zane: I trust him to get himself through each day. We all live with the possibility that our loved ones won’t return home each night.

Ty: At least we’re armed and ready.

lineDivider_1

If you could both go back in time and change one thing from your life, without it altering your being together, what would it be and why?

Ty: I don’t like to look back. There’s too much heartbreak when you start thinking about what could have been, you start laying too much blame on yourself. That’s no way to live.

lineDivider_1

Who is the first one to apologise after a general argument? Feel free to expand a wee bit about the makeup sex, we're all ears - lol!

Ty: Nope!

Zane: Ty only apologizes when he wants something.

Ty: Do not.

Zane: Do too.

lineDivider_1

Do you guys ever get chance to just chill with a book? In fact do you have any guilty pleasures when it comes to reading? We are all wondering whether there's any m/m romances tucked away anywhere...*grins*

Ty: I’m not too big a reader.

Zane: I wish I had time to read.

lineDivider_1

So guys. Marriage? Is it on the cards and who's most likely to be the one to do the asking?

Ty: My brother Deuce is getting married.

Zane: That’s not what they’re asking.

Ty: I know.

lineDivider_1

iPod Shuffle time Guys… what ‘s the first track that comes up?

Ty: She’s Long Gone by the Black Keys.

Zane: The Last Pale Light in the West by Ben Nichols

lineDivider_1

We think you both deserve a well-earned holiday at some stage after all this non-stop action. If you could both choose a holiday destination together, where would it be and why?  …Please say the UK!!

Zane: Isn’t holiday just the British version of vaca-

Ty: We don’t use that word!

lineDivider_1

Thank you Ty and Zane for joining us today on Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews and answering our questions. Hope they weren't too much for you, but it was great getting to know you both a little better personally. We would like to wish you all the best for the future and above all keep each other's backs protected and stay safe.

Ty: Thanks for the public torture.

Zane: There there . . .

Synopsis

Home from their unexpected deployment, the former members of Marine Force Recon team Sidewinder rejoin their loved ones and try to pick up the pieces of the lives they were forced to leave behind. Ty Grady comes home to Zane Garrett, only to find that everything around him has changed—even the men he went to war with. He barely has time to adjust before his brother, Deuce, asks Ty to be his best man. But that isn’t all Deuce asks Ty to do, and Ty must call for backup to deal with the business issues of Deuce’s future father-in-law.
Nick O’Flaherty and Kelly Abbott join Ty and Zane at the wedding on an island in Scotland, thinking they’re there to assuage Deuce’s paranoia. But when bodies start dropping and boats start sinking, the four men get more involved with the festivities than they’d ever planned to.
With the clock ticking and the killer just as stuck on the isolated island as they are, Ty and Zane must navigate a veritable minefield of family, friends, and foes to stop the whole island from being destroyed.

  45. Since the book hasn't arrived yet, and I utterly and completely blame it on the italian post service, these interviews are sneakpeaks, torture and balm at the same time.

    I've missed the interviews with the two of them <3 They always manage to make me laugh
