The Boys of DownCrash Series by London Casey Interview
The Stronger, Safer Kind (The Boys of DownCrash #1) All Scarlett wanted to do was thank the sexy stranger who helped her push away a drunk, grabby college boy at a bar. When that stranger identifies himself as Tripp and then takes the stage as the lead singer and guitarist for rock band, DownCrash, everything in Scarlett's life begins to change. Her best friend, Andy, confesses his love for her and leaves her with what should be an easy decision to make... yet each time she looks in Andy's eyes, she can't help but face her secret, nightmarish past. The only thing that makes Scarlett feel better is Tripp... but Tripp isn't just a bad boy rockstar, he's hurt. He's in pain. He tries to hide his pain in a bottle, but Scarlett believes that, perhaps, their secrets can help each other. Friendship and love is suddenly put to the test, and Scarlett is torn... Will she choose an easy, comfortable, happy life or a life clouded with mixed signals, raw emotion, and intense romance?
Torn to Pieces
(The Boys of DownCrash #2)
Trying to forget about the promises she was forced to make as a young, naive eighteen year old, Maggie creates a false persona that paints her as the girl who never says no...
However, once she lays eyes on the drummer of DownCrash, everything clicks. From his sexy lip ring to the way he stares at her from the stage, Tatum becomes everything Maggie has ever fantasized about.
When trouble catches up to her in a parking garage after a DownCrash show, and Tatum shows up out of nowhere to protect her. For the first time in years, she is intimidated by a man's kindness and sexiness, and not by his temper and jealousy. As real feelings begin to grow Maggie is faced with her past and wonders if she'll ever be able to escape the promises she once made to keep the promises she wants to make right now.
***The final book in The Boys of DownCrash trilogy!***
Some Kind of Hell (The Boys of DownCrash #3)
In the trilogy finale, shy DownCrash bassist, Logan, has his sexy eyes on Maggie's best friend, Annie. But Annie is still reeling from the way her relationship ended. She's hurt, angry, jealous, and the last thing she wants is some wannabe rockstar looking for his next hookup... although it may just be what she needs.
Logan wants more for his life. The past is living in his apartment, which forces him to spend nights in his car to avoid reliving the nightmare over and over again.
When Annie's guard comes down, tragedy strikes and their lives will be changed forever. Determined to win Annie over and help DownCrash get signed to a record deal, Logan has his work cut out for him. His gorgeous body and no-bullshit personality may just be the key to both...
Where did you get the idea for the novel? – I wanted to capture a college like band that had real problems in life. I wanted to show the shows and the band growing, but I wanted to come up with something that involved romance and real life situations.
Your title. Who came up with it? Did you ever change your title? – I came up with it in the middle of writing the book. There was a line that involved someone being “the stronger, safer kind” and it just stuck with me. The title has never been changed.
Why did you pick this genre? What do you like about it? – I love new adult. It’s deep and groundbreaking. People in their early twenties now face some big challenges and tragedies… not to mention romance at that age is so special and sometimes really intense.
Since becoming a writer, what’s the most exciting thing to ever happen to you? – Getting these books published. Reading the reviews. It’s amazing!
What book are you currently reading or what was the last book you read? – I’ve been lost in the world of new adult. I’ll just load up my Kindle and disappear for days at a time, reading a book a day.
What is your writing process? – I write when I’m inspired. Sometimes in the morning, sometimes at night. Even sometimes in the middle of the night I’ll wake up and write.
At a book signing, do you just sign your name or do you write a note? How do you come up with stuff to say? – Well, I’ve never done a book signing. I’m not that big yet, I guess. I’m really shy though so it’s okay. But if I was to do a book signing… I’d sign the book and nothing else.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you? – I’m a good cook. Seriously. You look at me and you wouldn’t think it, but I can really cook.
How do you react to a bad review? – Take it straight through the heart and then go back to writing. I write so I can become better.
How did you celebrate the sale of your first book? – I wrote the second and third books in The Boys of DownCrash!
