Black Friday Book Boyfriend Giveaway Day 14 JB McGees Bradley Banks

Gabby's life has been anything but easy. She is surrounded by friends who seem to have everything she doesn't: money, social standing, and happily married parents. While dealing with the loss of her mother, she experiences her first heartbreak. She commits herself to her studies and runs away from any emotions that aren't safe. Bradley Banks, a confident CEO and commercial architect, who has long time commitment issues forces Gabby to feel again, but will he be her next heartbreak?

Character Bio:

Having a family never crossed my mind until I met Gabby.  Hell, having a wife never crossed my mind until her, either.  I had always been secure in my weekly flings.  It was all I knew, all I had been taught, and I definitely didn’t want to continue the kind of dysfunctional family life I had endured for years.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my family, but it’s messed up.
What I’ve learned is that we all have a little dysfunction.  If we stop living because of it, that is the greater tragedy.  
I’m Bradley Banks.  I’m a commercial architect and own my own firm in Atlanta, GA.  That’s not my greatest accomplishment.  The title I love the most is husband to my wife, Gabby Banks. 
It’d be nice if something in our life would be easy, but it seems that we jump one hurdle and then we’re right onto the next one.  We found out recently that growing our family may be the biggest leap we’ve had to make yet.  So we’re Trying.  
Trying Synopsis (Release in 2014):
Gabby's life seems to have come full circle. She has everything she has ever dreamed of: money, social standing and happily married parents.

She has just become a wife, is settling into her new life and is finally forgiving those in her past that broke her. Looking forward to bright new beginnings, Gabby is devastated to get the news that it is now or never for the future she has envisioned.

Experiencing heartache on a level she never thought possible, Gabby finds herself closing up. Drifting back to darker places, she watches, once again, as those around her experience the one thing she cannot.

Bradley is there for her as they try to overcome the obstacle together, but will Gabby be strong enough to endure the heartbreak she is experiencing?

Interview with Bradley

 Do you ever steal the shampoos and soaps from hotel rooms?

What kind of question is this?  I don't need to steal the shampoos and soaps from the hotel.

Nice job evading the question, Mr. Banks.  Have you ever done it?

(smirking) You noticed.  Only the ones that smell good.

Have you ever 'done it' in a public place before?

Geez, don't hold anything back. (Runs his fingers through his messy hair narrowing his eyes with a crooked smile) Maybe once or twice. (winks)

 Have you ever stolen a street sign before?

I think that is a pre-requisite for teenage guys.

Is that a yes?


 Do you like to use post-it notes?

Seriously?  didn't used to think so, but yes.

 What is your favorite food?

I love seafood, especially lobster.

  Biggest regret?

Being such a selfish jerk to so many girls.

I'm a good 'ole southern boy, sweet iced tea!

 Black or white?

 Shower or bath?
Hmm, I have to pick one or the other?  They both can be, know.  I take showers.

Pancakes, hands down.
