Ryan Diaz is the SEXY guy on the cover.
He's funny and sweet and kind and totally HAWT!
And I interviewed him!
Getting to do the interview
over the phone is the best part for me,
starting with the "Hey, babe,"
that came in lieu of hello. *swoons*
Morgan: Let’s start easy: Cats or Dogs?
Ryan: Dogs. I have an American Eskimo named Kobe.
Morgan: Favorite sport?
Ryan: Ooo… I don’t know if Body-building’s a sport. I’ll go with baseball. I played center field in high school. I probably should have said left field, huh? *laughs*
Morgan: Where is your favorite place on earth?
Ryan: Um, ah, that’s a tough one. I’ll say the beach in Laguna.
Morgan: What do you do to relax?
Ryan: Go to the gym.
Morgan: You know, Ricky goes to the gym when he needs to unwind.
Ryan: That’s cool.
Morgan: Pretty authentic, huh?
Ryan: *laughs* Yep.
Morgan: What do you look for in a woman?
Morgan: Are you single?
Morgan: Are you a hopeless romantic or just an average Joe?
Ryan: A hopeless romantic.
Morgan: Do you prefer to stay in and cook or to go out?
Ryan: Go out. 100 percent.
Morgan: So, what’s your favorite restaurant?
Ryan: Extreme Sushi
Morgan: What’s your favorite thing to do in Las Vegas?
Ryan: Um, I don’t know. Go to the movies.
Morgan: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Ryan: My height.
Morgan: What’s your favorite season?
Morgan: What was the last book you read?
Ryan: LUCKY 13.
Morgan: *gets giddy* You actually read it?
Ryan: Of course I did.
Morgan: *still blushing* If you could be a character in any book, who would it be? Why?
Ryan: I’d be in LUCKY 13 because it’s written by an amazing author and has a stud on the cover. *laughs*
Morgan: Do you consider yourself the “Hero” or the “Bad Boy”?
Ryan: Bad boy.
Morgan: How do your family and friends feel about your being on the cover of LUCKY 13?
Ryan: They think it’s cool. It’s right up my alley.
Morgan: Was LUCKY 13 a one-time-deal or will we see you on more book covers?
Ryan: Hopefully you’ll see me on more book covers.
Morgan: One last question: After attending Arizona Dreamin’ 2012, do large groups of women scare you?
Ryan: No. No, not at all. As long as they’re friendly and not hostile.
Morgan: Anything you want to add?
Ryan: Yeah. Vote for LUCKY 13 by Morgan Kearns for Best Contemporary: Jocks, Cop & Cowboys! I am Ryan Diaz and I approve this message. *laughs*
And I gotta give a huge shout-out to Ryan. He’s an amazing guy with an easy-going humor that’s contagious. I’m still smiling.
Stay tuned for mine and Ryan's version of how we met.
Warning: they are hilarious!
Please show ENRIQUE SANTIAGO a little love...
