Bonnet, New York
Q: Which do you prefer -- Jimmy Choos or flats? Why?
CASEY: Definitely flats. The last time I wore heels at my gallery opening, it didn't go so well. Most of the time you'll find me in hiking boots, or barefoot running down to the lake where I live.
Q: Does sex mean love?
CASEY: No way. Sometimes you want a good time, even when you're convinced it won't last.
Q: Does love mean marriage?
CASEY: I'd like to get married eventually, but right now I'm so happy with where I am in my relationship and in my life that I don't want to rush the next steps.
Q: What attracted you first to the hero?
CASEY: Oh God, his dimples. Then he turned around, and it was all over for me. I wanted him right then and there. But what I really noticed, besides his ass, was how young he looked. I felt like a cradle robber for staring. Good thing he was so persistent, making sure I wouldn't be able to get his smile out of my mind.
Q: If you and your hero were stuck in an elevator, how would you pass the time?
CASEY: Besides making the security guard blush if we were caught on camera? We have great conversations, so we'd probably be talking about the campground I run, my latest art opening, or his café, which is really taking off. Or he'd be complaining about how I owned him in a Scrabble re-match with our friends. That happens a lot.♥
ABOVE ALL Book Summary:
Reeling from a sudden breakup, Casey Webb leaves her life in New York City to run a campground in the Adirondacks, convinced she needs nothing more than dramatic peaks and glittering lakes to be fulfilled. But after reading the acknowledgements to her ex’s bestselling debut, thanking his new girlfriend “above all,” Casey has a passionate weekend fling with a hot, young Brooklyn-bound chef who just might be her own “above all”—if she can hold onto him when the real world intrudes.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Rebecca Brooks has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. She writes about travel, the outdoors, and independent women ready to try something new.
