Character Interview and Giveaway with Adam and Bay from Enforcer's Redemption by Carrie Ann Ryan

I’m sitting here on my patio, watching the leaves fall to the ground as winter starts to take Autumn away and I’m trying to stay strong. You see, I’m about to interview Bay and Adam. These two took everything out of me to write and I don’t think I’m ready. They tore into me, broke through my shields, and showed me that I’m stronger than I thought. Yet I feel like I’m not ready to share them with you. Because no matter what I went through, they went through more. *takes a deep breath* Okay then. Here I am. I’m ready to share their story. As ready as I’ll ever be.

Carrie Ann: Welcome you two, I’m so pleased that I could get you guys to sit down with me.

Adam: *kisses Carrie Ann’s temple* We know you need us to help get out story out, we’re here for you.

Bay: What he means is we’re here for you because we want to be as well.

Adam: *raises brow*

Carrie Ann: I don’t know exactly where to start, so I’m just going to jump right in with the hard question. Is Anna still in the middle of your mating? *braces self*

Adam: *gives a small smile* She’s not in the middle, but she’s there.

Bay: *leans into Adam’s side and he relaxes* She will always be there, I don’t want to forget her, but she’s not in the way or in the middle.

Carrie Ann: *lets out a sigh* I’m sorry for asking, but it’s been bothering me. Okay, so I’ve been hearing rumblings that Adam, you’re an ass, care to defend yourself?

Adam: I am one. At least I was daily. *sighs and rubs his eyes* I’m doing everything in my power to make it up to my family and Bay, I don’t know how I ever will though.

Bay: Hey, you’re forgiven, you know that. Grief tends to make people into asses and you saved us.

Adam: *shakes his head* I haven’t done enough.

Carrie Ann: Okay, I’ll leave this question as is so we don’t spoil it for others. Tell me, what was your first impression of each other?

Adam: Sexy as hell.

Bay: Lonely.

Carrie Ann: God, I love you Bay, you’re so honest.

Bay: I have to be. I’m not hiding anymore.

Adam: *kisses her temple then her lips* You don’t have to anymore.

Carrie Ann *sighs* Okay, what’s next in the war with the Centrals?

Adam: We’re going to kill them.

Bay: They need to be ended. Now.

Adam: *turns to Bay* I like this bloodthirsty side of you.

Bay: *grins* I learned from the best.

Carrie Ann: *clears throat* Okay, so I know something big happened in ENFORCER’S REDEMPTION. Okay, TONS of big things happened, but you know which one I’m talking about. Are you okay?

Adam & Bay: We will be.

Carrie Ann: I know you will be. You’re tougher than I ever thought possible. Thank you so much for coming here and next time I have you down for an interview, we’ll have a fun post about ice cream and sexual positions. I promise.

Adam: Fuck yeah.

Bay: *rolls eyes* Great, now you got him started. Just read the book to see who we are. I promise we don’t bite…well unless you ask.

Together, they must struggle and find a way to fight their pasts and present in order to protect their future. But the Centrals have a plan that might make their path one of loss and destruction.

Find it On:

~~Excerpt ~~

Now, his problem was sleeping in his bed. Thankfully, it wasn’t the same bed he’d shared with Anna. He’d gotten rid of that in a moment of desperation to get rid of the thoughts, memories, and scents that came with looking at something she’d touched and where they’d made love countless times.

“Adam? Get your head out of your ass and hand me the bottle.”

Adam slid it across the table, watching the contents slosh against the sides. Maddox gripped it, staring at it, but not drinking.

“I thought you wanted a drink,” Adam slurred.

“Not really, I just wanted to cut you off.”

A slow burn of rage crept over him, but the drunken haze made it too hard to care. “You’re an ass.”

“Pretty much.” Mad stood and walked to the kitchen.

“Hey, why aren’t you wobbling around? Didn’t you have as much to drink as I did?”

Mad came back empty-handed and frowned. “No, I had about half what you did. I’m buzzed, not shit-faced drunk like you.”

“Hey, that’s not nice.” His tongue felt heavy, and he could swear the room tilted to the left when he tried to blink.

Okay, maybe he had drunk a little too much.

“You think?” his wolf growled.

“Shut up.”

“Uh, who are you talking to?” Mad asked.

“My wolf, he’s an ass.”

Mad shook his head then winced. Ha! His little brother didn’t feel too good now, did he? “You’re crazy. But we already knew this.”

“No more crazy than you.”
