Hello and welcome to my blog for another round of Meet the Characters! Today I am featuring a guest blogger who has graciously agreed to let me do a character interview, which is my favorite kind of interview. Join me in welcoming author, Victoria Adams, and her characters from A Guy and A Girl. It’s a fantastic NA contemporary romance with wonderful characters so without further ado here is the interview with Hunter and Chelsea.
How did you first meet your writer?
Hunter – I was skating around the hockey rink at an early morning practice and she was sitting in the stands scribbling in a little book.
Did you ever think that your life would end up being in a book?
Hunter -Not a book. I was thinking more of an action-packed thriller movie. 3D.
What are your favorite scenes in your book: the action, the dialog or the romance?
Hunter – Does any guy say the dialogue?? It’s got to be the romance because then I get to hold Chelsea and um…probably shouldn’t say more.
Chelsea – You’d better not. My parents might read this.
Hunter – Oh, Hi, Chelsea. Glad to see you drop in.
What do you like to do when you are not being actively read somewhere?
Hunter– *snorts* – Chelsea is so not gonna let me answer that question.
Chelsea *rolls her eyes*
Are you happy with the genre your writer has placed you in?
Chelsea – *raises a hand to silence Hunter* I’ll answer this one. Yes, NA is a perfect genre for us as we are in our early twenties. People our age can relate to our problems.
What do you do for a living?
Chelsea – I’m hoping to finish college this year, but at the moment I work at a clothing boutique at the mall on Saturdays. Not a great job, but I get a discount on clothes.
Hunter – While I’m trying to make it to the majors to play professional hockey, I’m working in a bar.
Chelsea *sighs* You should see him. Tight black pants and no shirt. Yum!
What embarrasses you?
Chelsea – Everything. I blush so easily.
Hunter *chuckling* I love it when you do. You’re so cute.
What do you find most appealing in men/women?
Hunter *burst out laughing*
Chelsea – *slaps his thigh*
If you knew a zombie apocalypse was coming in one week, what would you do?
Hunter *laughing* Put my hockey helmet on to protect my brain.
Chelsea * punches his arm. Hey – what about me?
Hunter – You know I’d get a helmet for you. I’m not gonna let some zombie eat your brain.
What do you admire about your parents?
Chelsea – They haven’t forgotten to love each other. They’ll hug and kiss and snuggle on the couch when watching a movie. I used to think it was so gross, but now it’s sweet.
Hunter – My dad died when I was little. Josh, my step dad, I respect and admire him for putting up with me.
Do you like the way the book ended?
Chelsea *grins* – I think it’s a perfect ending.
Hunter *leans close and kisses her cheek* Me too.
Lies, deceits and secrets – not a good way to begin a relationship.
After an ugly past forced Hunter Connolly to escape to Europe, the talented hockey player is back in North America and determined to land a position with a professional team. But he can’t hide from his past forever, especially when his beautiful classmate, Chelsea, forces him to reexamine his life. Soon, hockey is not his first priority anymore.
Chelsea Henderson is a bright co-ed working towards her dream of being a professional dancer. She forms a unique friendship with one of her father’s newest recruits and would love nothing more than to take it to the next level. However, there’s just one small problem. He doesn’t know she’s his coach’s daughter.
Amid the deceptions, danger lurks closer than they could ever imagine. Will fate contrive to rip the young lovers apart? Or will Hunter and Chelsea have their shot at love?
Chelsea parked her car on the edge of the lot and watched Hunter. She remembered him mentioning early morning outdoor skates and this was the largest inline park in the city.
She curled her toes, in her flip-flops. Last night, she’d so wanted him to pull her close and kiss her. Frustrated by both Todd and Kendall’s shadow, she couldn’t tell him she liked him and wanted to get to know him better. She’d hoped, somehow, he’d know that and kiss her. But, he hadn’t. How noble of him.
Sighing, she glanced back out her front windshield. Hunter had collapsed on the grass and was chugging his drink.
“Good morning.” She walked towards him. When he didn’t turn, she picked up a pebble and tossed it near where he sat.
He glanced over his shoulder. His face broke into wide grin as he popped his earbuds out. “What’re you doing up at this hour?”
“Proving a theory that life exists before my 8:00 a.m. cup of coffee.” She sat next to Hunter. “I wanted to talk, but I couldn’t wait.”
“Sounds serious, but I need to go home and shower or Professor Campbell won’t let me in class.”
“Have you been home yet? Since last night, I mean.” A knot formed in her stomach waiting for his response.
“I didn’t stay at Kendall’s if that’s what you’re asking. You coulda told me her mother works for the Vipers. She dropped in last night and was a bit pissed at my being there.” A slight edge of anger filled in his voice.
Chelsea picked at a blade of grass. Then you’re probably gonna hate finding out who my dad is.

I’m Victoria Adams. I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband and pets. Daughter’s grown up and is now teaching. I like to garden, cook and study Raqs Sharqi (Egyptian belly dance). In the summer, cars slow down when they pass my front yard and the passengers gaze at my flower beds. Friends love to be invited over for supper as the meal is going to be good, good for you and nowhere near low-calorie! No dieting allowed at dinner parties. As to belly dancing, find a class and try it. It’s a blast! Age and weight don’t matter. There are many plus size ladies and one 74 yr old grandmother in one of my classes.
I’ve been writing since I was little. Being an only child, long car rides were filled with making up stories in my head about the people I saw out the car window. When my daughter was younger, I made up stories that she suggested. I’d say – Once upon a time there was a…. She’d shout an answer – chicken! And the story went from there. Great creativity exercise as it turns out. Now, my writing style has taken a split to contemporary romance for adults and contemporary romance for new adults.
