Back in February I was involved in GGR’s tour for Crashing Into Love, the first novel I read by Gregory Jonathan Scott. One of the main things I loved about his writing was the sense of humour he conveys!
All in One Place invited the author to be part of Male Monday and he said yes! 🙂 Further down the post there is an awesome (and very funny!) interview with the pilot Kale, who is one of the main characters from Crashing Into Love . . .and the first time I think I’ve ever been called cute!!!
Gregory Jonathan Scott is the author of 3 novels and 1 novella and was first published in January 2014, withHeartbreak Beat, a contemporary M/M baseball romance.
Love at first site grips two hearts, locks two souls and instantly connects them seamlessly.
Fast love begins on the diamond field where Gabriel unexpectedly encounters the man he’s only heard about. During a brief musical performance that starts his game, he quickly grows more aware of the lead singer with electrifying blue eyes, a striking smile and a body fit for more than just dancing to the thump of a distant drumbeat. Instantly he senses a link with the man behind the music unlike any he’s ever felt before.
By force of nature and during his song, Alec James is stimulated by palpitations of the heart when the center man of the baseball field looks his way and smiles. He falls in love with the pitcher even before their hearts have a chance to trade places. A song and a game executes a rock solid love affair between these two men who meet one another by chance.
Though building their life of love together, Gabriel and AJ merge with obstacles that cartwheel in and out of their path, and their romance becomes tangled with criminal suspense. While balancing newfound love and their iconic careers, they clash with distractions that spiral around them, one speeding up right after the other. In the course of it all, Gabriel and AJ refuse to give up on love and unprecedented male bonding.
A finale so unexpected breaks open when another spiraling event takes a shocking turn.
The historical M/M romance, The Plantation Affair was published in March 2014 and Take to the Sky in October 2014 (*cover love*).
During a time when love between two chaps was not spoken of, Deklan and Logan found a way to bring their affair of the heart to life. One was the white son of a wealthy Plantation owner, and the other a black servant who worked the property to survive.
This romantic fairytale took place in the deep south of Georgia in the late eighteenth century where horse carriages and kerosene lighted lanterns brought a town to life. Deklan and Logan’s affair was ignited one night with the help of a mysterious man who magically appeared and then disappeared without a trace after leading them into the realms of love.
Love was found, Love was lost and then Love was found again in a spiraling and uplifting fairytale between two lovable beings that were meant to be in love.
In a secret Michigan Laboratory, an experiment developed a superior creation that was anticipated but not expected. He was the ultimate conception, a core life-being merged with avian. He was born with a gift, a rare one; the ability to fly.
His wings instinctively brought out the urge in him to fly, and Kellan’s need to be free became his obsession.
When the dark, swirling clouds loomed one night, Kellan abandoned the place he had called home, taking to the sky in search of his freedom and to seal his heart that seemed incomplete.
Because Kellan’s secret was too great for anyone outside the institute to know about, TC unleashed genetically altered Maniacs to bring him back.
Through independence, his amazing reality brought riveting adventures to a man he found and couldn’t seem to live without. They get tangled with hair-raising suspense that adds heart-pounding tension to every attempt they make at living their unique affair. They faced uncertainty so hectic that staying together was the least of their challenges, and it caused many of their bouts with passion to spiral in and out of chaos.
Along their frenzied path to survive, hidden secrets surface about Kellan, prompting each move they make in order to truly set him free.
Could Kellan’s one true love and passion to fly be the death of him?
It’s a magnificently inventive adventure of menace, romance, and extreme erotic pleasures
In January of this year, the novella Crashing Into Love was released and we got to meet Kale and Sean!
Sean, a single California Interior designer sets his sights on going home after a short business trip on the island of Kauai. On his way back to the States, Sean’s world literally spirals out of control when the flight he’s on takes a course he hadn’t expected and into the masculine arms of Kale, a drop dead handsome pilot with attitude, spontaneous charm, and a hint of recklessness.
While stuck on a deserted island off the coast of Maui, they discover there are situations worse than the one they’re in. Initially all they have in common are their aversions for each other and their eagerness to survive. When they realize all they have is each other, Sean and Kale set their differences aside, learn to cope with their seemingly tragic situation and find common ground. After a string of mishaps and clashing personalities, their time together proves far from foolproof when they surprisingly get swept into a whirlwind romance.
The early stages of their engagement involve increasingly desperate measures to conceal their growing affection for each other and by the time Kale confesses his desires, Sean is obsessed. With hormones on both sides roiling and reality setting in, their need to explore each other grows.
Can Kale hide his interest in the man he finds ideal until Sean is ready? Or will Sean’s hysterical dramatic disposition send him packing? Crashing into Love is a romantic comedy about a quirky courtship, clashing personalities, love, and a developing relationship that turns profound – but not necessarily in that order!
Kale and Sean are pitch-perfect in this comical romance of unintentional companionship.

I am really grateful that Gregory Jonathan Scott entered into the spirit of this interview! I love it and hope you will too! Now we welcome the flirtatious Kale . . .
Me: Hi Kale, thank you so much for meeting with me. How is Sean?
Kale: I appreciate the invite, Kirsty. You’re a cute little shit. Did you decorate yourself like that for me or are you always this dazzling? (Smirks) Give me a hug.
It’s kind of you to ask about Sean, and he’s doing well. He would have come with me on this trip, but he currently has a few projects going on that have him on locked down. From what I’ve found out over that past few months, that man is incredibly talented at what he does, and that puts him in a position of being in hot demand.
Me: Can you tell us how you felt when Sean caught up with you in the airport?
I’m usually a calm and collected person, able to handle just about any situation without losing my shit, but that day when I let Sean go, I lost it and it felt like my heart was yanked right out of my chest with the force of a Samurai’s fist — In and out, that quickly. Super painful, leaving me dead inside.
When I saw Sean round that corner at the airport, I lost my shit in a different way. The punch in the chest was just as hard as when my heart was first ripped out, but this time upliftingly powerful, bringing me back to life, like the sun passed right through me. I was so ready to sweep that man off his feet all over again. Damn I love him.
Me: Sean showed a fair amount of negativity when you were stranded. How did you counteract this?
Sean really isn’t that destructive, in fact that was actually the only time I’ve witnessed him that way. I know he showed all the signs of being bipolar, but who wouldn’t after being stranded on a deserted island with what seemed to be a hopeless vision. To help his situation, I had to keep my cool so he would keep his, and my way of doing that was to crack a few one liners from time to time. I know my stupid humor wrung Sean’s spine a few times, but he got used to it and I really think that’s what helped him warm up to me. Other things I did to him on that island also helped. (Big grin)
Me: What would you say are Sean’s 3 best qualities?
He has many, but here are three quickies.
One thing I like about Sean, which is needed if you’re going to be with somebody like me, is his patience. It wasn’t noticeable on the island, but he does have it. Honestly… I swear.
Another quality is his passion – Holy crap that man overflows with it. He puts more than one hundred percent of himself into everything he does.
The third would be warmth. I’ve found out quickly how huge that man’s heart is.
Me: What would he say are yours?
The one that immediately comes to mind, if it can even be considered a quality, is my smartass wit. I can’t help myself; it just comes naturally, like a curse. It occasionally gets Sean riled up and I know it, but then I get to settle his soul with kisses, heavy groping, and hot sex.
Enthusiasm is another. It just pours out of me the same way a fast car takes to the tracks. I usually wear Sean out before he does me. You know what I mean, don’t make me say it. (waggles brow and grins crookedly)
Let’s go with spontaneous for the third. Yeah, that’s a good one.
Me: Do you have a favourite moment which you’ve spent with Sean so far?
Other than, well, you know…
This might sound a bit corny but it was one of our most memorable and favored moments in our young relationship. Picture it: The night was Halloween and while we were passing out treats to all the goblins, princesses and superheroes, two little fairies, whose parents I sort of bribed earlier, came to the door and asked to see Mister Sean, or actually yelled his name out, like kids do. It was cute. It surprised him they knew his name and he wondered what was up. The two fairies each held a magical wand, and at the end of them, hidden under their hands were a matching set of rings. The fairies swished their wands, pointed them at our hands and let the rings slide down each flickering stick and onto our ring fingers. It was sort of soppy and romantic, but a fun way to surprise Sean with commitment rings. He never expected it, and talks about that creepy night even now. The evening turned out just the way I had planned, with a few added extras if you know what I mean. Sean was so thrilled about the whole idea that he gave me the big one several times throughout the night, and of course I reciprocated with a big one of my own. Oh, snap, I can say that on your show, right?
