Today we sit down with Robert from Falling In Between to get in his head...
just a little. *winks*
So let me introduce you to....
Not really sure why he is looking at me like that but with that face...he can do what he wants;) lol
Darkfallen: So you went to school with Jenna for three years, and never asked her out. Why did it take her almost drowning to get your attention?
Robert: In all fairness, I did take notice last year but I didn’t want to start a relationship with someone right before summer vacation. I was going to ask her out beginning of term but I hadn’t seen her yet. And I had no idea she and Sophie were in the woods that night until Jhett and I ran to see who was screaming their head off.
Darkfallen: I know Jhett said you went a little crazy trying to save her. What was going through your head when you were trying to find her? And why wouldn’t you let Jhett help with C.P.R?
Robert: I panicked. I absolutely panicked when Sophie was screaming that it was Jenna she couldn’t find beneath the water. I don’t know…Jhett said I stayed down so long he thought I had drowned too. And yeah, my lungs were burning, but any pain I was feeling I knew Jenna had to be feeling ten times worse, so I forced myself to stay down longer than I should have. As for the CPR, I knew Jhett knew how to do it, but I just couldn’t put Jenna’s life in someone else’s hands. Not even my best friend’s.
Darkfallen: When you first found out that Jenna doesn’t have any family did that make you look at her differently? If so, how?
Robert: A lot of my classmates come from broken homes but I guess I expected her to have some type of family. So, yeah, I was a little shocked when she told me she had zero relatives of any kind and was a ward of the state. If I felt anything it had to be surprise – you have to be pretty smart to earn a free ride to the academy. Beautiful and smart? No complaints here.
Darkfallen: Everything was going seemingly great when they all fell apart, and Jenna needed her space. What went through your mind when that happened?
Robert: Honestly? WTF? One hour we were taking the next step in our relationship, the next she was running away. She said it had nothing to do with me, but seriously, how many times have people used that as an excuse to let someone down easy? With every day that passed, I feared she was really going to leave me…and I had no idea what the hell went wrong. I still don’t.
Well thanks for stopping buy and hanging out with us. Even if I did pry a little. lol
OH! And did I mention that Robert is a swimmer? And that I might just have another pic to slip in here but you better not tell Jenna, because I so don't need to get smacked;)
Ummmmmmm see why I might get smacked? Lol

Falling In Between
By Devon Ashley
Expected Publication Feburary 14th 2012
Synopsis borrowed from Goodreads:
Finally! A private conversation. And all I had to do was throw myself off a cliff, drown in a pond in my undies and let him put his hands on my breasts to bring me back to life. Yay me…(yeah, that’s sarcasm)
Yep, that pretty much sums up the most craptastic night of Jenna Baker’s life. She drowns after jumping off a cliff, meets a hotty named Chance in the pearlescent in-between and is brought back to life by her soon-to-be boyfriend Robert.
Just when things start to move forward with Robert, the guy she'd been crushing on for a year now, in walks the man of her dreams – literally. Chance suddenly appears in her dream every time she closes her eyes. So it's Robert by day and Chance by night. One in the real world and one in the dream world. What could possibly go wrong?
Absolutely nothing – until she comes face to face with the guy she met in the in-between, and realizes her romantic rendezvous with Chance may be more than just her imagination.
Note: Jenna's coming of age story is a little edgy. There is mild language and some sexual content.
