BLOG TOUR ~ BRAYDON by Nicole Edwards (Review and Interview with Braydon and Jessie)

From New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Nicole Edwards comes the sixth searing adventure in her Alluring Indulgence erotic romance series, which follows the seven Walker brothers and their sizzling-hot love interests!

Braydon Walker has always shared everything with his identical twin brother Brendon—hopes, dreams, career choices, and yes, even women. Known for tag-teaming their love interests in every way imaginable, Braydon is surprised and unnerved when he finds himself wanting to keep their newest lover all to himself. Will the twins’ relationship evolve to fit this new mold, or will Braydon’s desire for independence tear them apart?


Braydon and Brendon were twins, they were inseparable.   They shared everything,  and I mean everything... including their woman.  The brothers were never with a woman without the other, so when Braydon begins to develop feelings for Jessie, he doesn't know how to handle them.  

Braydon was a total sweetheart and melted my heart. I wanted him to be happy, and to see that he was suffering with the feelings that he had for Jessie, broke my heart.  He didn't know how to handle them, and he sure as hell didn't know how Brendon was going to handle this revelation.  Would Brendon accept the fact that Braydon wanted Jessie for himself? Would Braydon tell Jessie how he feels?  Will Braydon stay the third wheel in the relationship and watch Brendon dominate it?  Can Braydon and Brendon have exclusive relationships on their own?  Will Braydon wanting Jessie for himself change the dynamics of the twins' relationship? How will Brendon handle Braydon choice?  Will Brendon support his twin or will this divide the two? 

I have to say, I wasn't sure how Brendon was going to handle the news that Braydon wanted Jessie for himself, but we knew from Ethan's book, that Brendon knew that Braydon was developing feelings for Jessie, that is why Brendon issued the ultimatum to Jessie.  He wanted her to choose.  

Knowing that Jessie wouldn't choose, she didn't want trouble between the twins, he played his hand well.  They continued to have a threesome, but it was only a matter of time until Braydon couldn't stand by and watch his brother with Jessie.

Jessie didn't have the best track records for relationships.  She promised herself that she wouldn't fall in love again, she was tired of getting hurt.  So when she began to develop feelings for Braydon, she refused to tell him.  Jessie wasn't going to be that vulnerable girl again.  To see Jessie struggle with her feelings for Braydon was hard.  Many times I was frustrated reading this book, I just wanted Jessie to say what was on her mind.  Tell Braydon how she felt.  Take a chance, don't be afraid to fall, cause if she did, Braydon would be right there to catch her.  Braydon never gave Jessie a reason to doubt him.  Braydon was worth fighting for.

Nicole Edwards has a way of creating characters that make it hard not to fall in love with them.  With each Walker brother, there are different characteristics that I love. Braydon was so loving and nurturing, so to see him in struggle with the feeling she had for Jessie, gutted me.  Not only was Braydon trying to juggle his feelings for Jessie, he was trying to juggle his relationship with his brother, Brendon.


I would like to thank Braydon and Jessie for sitting down with Naughty and Nice Book Blog.  I have to say, there must be something in the water in TEXAS because you Walker boys are FINE!!!!!  They need to pipeline that water to the east coast and a little more north.

Braydon, do you think you should have told Jessie how you felt sooner than you did?
Braydon: Hindsight being 20/20 and all, sure, I think it might’ve made more sense. No matter the timing though, I think things worked out the way they were supposed to."

Why do you always seem to take the backseat when it comes to Brendon?  You showed us that you have a dominant personality, yet you never showed that with Brendon.
Braydon: Brendon’s always had a more aggressive personality. It was easier not to rock the boat and I guess I got used to it. I don’t regret any of it.

Do you think Brendon over reacted just a bit to your relationship with him changing?
Braydon: That’s not for me to speculate on. I think Brendon reacted in a way that I was expecting. Neither of us want change, but I think there comes a time in everyone’s life where it just works that way.

Braydon, do you think that if you and Jessie communicated a little better, some of your problems in your relationship could have been avoided?
Braydon: Communication’s always the key. Again, knowing what I know now, it’s easy to say that if we’d opened up more it would’ve helped. But sometimes those underlying fears just make it difficult to do what seems to be the most logical.

Jessie: When emotions come into play, conversation isn’t always the first thing on your mind.

How are the two of you communicating now?
Braydon: Hmmm… Often and every day. Oh, you said communication. Did you mean verbally? Or…? *smirks*

Jessie: *elbows Braydon in the arm* Really?

Is your mom still working her matchmaking skills?  You know, there are still two single Walker brothers.  Do you foresee your mother meddling with Sawyer and Brendon’s relationships?
Braydon: I foresee my mother meddling anytime she can. It’s what she does. We’ve learned to live with it.

Let’s turn our attention to Jessie.

Why didn’t you trust Braydon enough to open up about your past to him?
Jessie: I can’t say it was a trust thing. It was more about self-preservation that had me shying away from him. It’s not easy for me to open up to people, I’ll admit that much. Especially about something I don’t care for people to know. I’m embarrassed, although I know it wasn’t my fault. That doesn’t make it any easier to deal with.

Did the idea of telling Braydon how you truly felt ever cross your mind, prior to him walking away from you?
Jessie: No. At the time, I wasn’t thinking about talking. Again, it’s the self-preservation. We all want someone to fight for us, to come after us, to make us believe we mean something to them. Talking is what the logical solution is, but it isn’t always the answer when you’re dealing with emotions.

Jessie, have you showed Braydon the more dominant side of you that you like in the bedroom? 
Jessie: Let’s just say we’ve been experimenting.

We know the Walker men like sex. Do the two of you have a favorite position?
Braydon and Jessie: (no hesitation) Reverse cowgirl.

Has Jessie used her sex toys on you lately?
*Braydon blushes* I’ll plead the fifth.

Have the two of you ever tied each other up?
Braydon: Not yet, but thanks for the idea.

Do you have a preference, sex or foreplay?
Braydon: Both, they kind of go hand in hand.

Do you plan on having a “big” Walker wedding, or something small and intimate?
Braydon: If I had my say, we’d go to Vegas. My mother would have none of that, so we’ll see. Right now, we’re just taking it one day at a time.

Jessie: I don’t care for a big wedding. Something intimate with family would be nice, sure. I just don’t know that we’re at that stage yet.

I would like for you both to tell us something about each other that the readers don’t know.  It can be anything.
Braydon: When certain songs come on the radio, Jessie starts dancing. Just subtle movements, but it’s cute.
Jessie: Braydon talks in his sleep.

I would like to thank the two of you for stopping by and sitting down with Naughty and Nice Book Blog.  I look forward to seeing what Nicole has in store for the rest of the Walker men, as well as the two of you.
