Character Interview + Contest: Nick from The Lucky Kind

Here today I have Nick from Alyssa B. Sheinmel's The Lucky Kind to answer a few questions! This is a book that I really loved, and you guys know my even bigger love of boy POV books, so Nick was just a fantastic narrator for me! So meet Nick, get interested, then go check out his story, but you can have a chance to win it right after the interview!

1. Describe yourself in four words.

I kind of think of myself in relation to the people around me. So that would make me a son, a boyfriend, and a best friend. But that’s only three words, so for the fourth, I’d probably say that I’m a New Yorker.

2. If you could tell your parents one thing without repercussion, what would it be?

Don’t lie to me. If I’m not strong enough to hear the truth now, then hearing the truth is the only way I’ll ever become strong enough.

3. What's your favorite thing about Eden?

I have two favorite things: first, she almost always tells me exactly the way she feels about whatever I’m doing or saying. It takes a lot of the guesswork out of trying to be a good boyfriend. And, two, I love how hard it is to make her laugh because when I actually do manage to get a laugh out of her, I feel pretty amazing.

4. What's it like kissing Eden?

Each of her kisses is different; they’re never quite the same. There’s always the familiar taste and feel of her, but they change depending on her mood, on the time of day, on whether it’s sunny or cold outside. But no matter what, it feels like I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing.

5. If you were a demigod, what god/goddess would be your parent?

I can see my dad as Poseidon. He’s the kind of person who could take a rough sea and make it calm.

6. Because the ladies around here like to know, boxers or briefs? 

Umm…Ask Eden.

Thank you, Nick, for answering my questions! Even the embarrassing ones... 

The Lucky Kind is out now, so make sure you guys all check it out!

  1. OOoo I haven't heard of this one, but I do love a male POV! Must check this out :)

  2. This sounds like a great read. I also don't like when my family/friends keep something from me or lie to me, thinking they are "protecting" me.

    Thanks for the giveaway :)

  3. Can't wait to read this book! Thanks for the giveaway!
