Today Vicktor Alexander visits to talk about his new book, Delicious Mistake. Don’t forget to check out the Giveaway.
How did you come up with the title for this book?
All of the books in the Mistakes series are centered around couples who get together because of what they see as being a “mistake.” So each book title acknowledges the “mistake” part, but then gives it an adjective which makes it sound complimentary. So instead of it being a “horrible mistake,” this book is entitled Delicious Mistake because the way the characters get together is so delicious.
How would you describe this book to someone who has not read any of your books?
Delicious Mistake is a book about a Dom named Miguel, a campaign manager who staunchly believes in the voting process, who is in the closet who sets out to stop his friend, Xavier, from making a big mistake and marrying a young man he barely knows and still running for the Senate. On the way, however, Miguel meets Julian, a young sub, who doesn’t vote, who is on his way to say goodbye to his brother who is dying. Miguel makes his own “mistake” by allowing himself to connect with the young unambitious, submissive male. But what Miguel sees as being a mistake may just be a delicious intervention of Fate. Delicious Mistake is an interracial, contemporary, May/December, BDSM romance that is book 3 in the Mistakes series.
Is there a message in this book you want your readers to understand?
That sometimes what we see as being mistakes can actually turn out to be opportunities for us to meet someone, or learn something, or are in the right place at the right time. And that you never know who someone may turn out to be to you, so take a chance and say hi, because it may be that Fate is intervening.
Miguel Rodriguez stood by his friend Xavier’s side when evidence of his affair with another man came out. He also stuck by Xavier when he disappeared from Atlanta and moved to the mountains of Wyoming. But he will not stand by Xavier when he decides to marry his young lover and still run for the Senate.
Hopping on a plane to Wyoming, Miguel finds himself meeting Julian Canton, a young man who has no political ambitions and doesn’t even vote, and yet Miguel finds himself fascinated. Miguel makes the mistake of upgrading Julian’s ticket so they can get to know each other better and somehow finds himself in Riverton, WY, holding Julian’s hand as he says goodbye to his brother. Giving in to his attraction to the young man, Miguel struggles not only with his physical attraction but with his emotional one as well. When he compounds his mistake by inviting Julian along with him to talk to Xavier, he soon finds himself feeling something he has never felt before. Will he join his friend Xavier in listening to his heart or will he walk away?
“How in the world did you make us being friends sound so dirty?” Julian asked.
Miguel chuckled. “Oh that’s easy. I can make anything sound dirty. It’s all about lowering my voice and making everything you say the most seductive thing you’ve ever uttered.”
Julian’s eyebrows rose. “Oh really? Prove it.”
Miguel leaned forward, ignoring the people walking past them, juggling their carry-ons, children, friends and spouses as they exited the plane. He lowered his voice and stared at Julian’s groin, his brain filling with images of Julian’s cock encaged in a cock ring, his body straining against restraints, his skin glistening with sweat as he pleaded with Miguel to let him come.
“Voting for a presidential candidate is one of the best things you can do as an American, because it guarantees that your voice is heard, even when it doesn’t feel like it. It’s a time when you can take control, assert your independence and make sure that you have someone in office who cares about what you care about.” He could hear how seductive his voice sounded and if the darkening of Julian’s eyes was any indication, the man was turned on—though more by the tenor of Miguel’s voice than his actual words. “You should think about voting, Julian,” he said, rolling the younger man’s name around in his mouth like a fine wine. “Enclosing yourself in a booth and either punching a hole or touching a screen and choosing who the head of the country is going to be.”
Julian was panting, his pink lips parted as he stared at Miguel. “Holy fuck,” he croaked out. “That was the sexiest thing I’ve ever heard about the most boring subject in the world.”
