Interview with Lauren Blakely, author of Overnight Service

04 Nov 2019

What can you tell us about your new release, Overnight Service?

If you love enemies-to-lovers stories and hot hate sex, then Overnight Service is your kind of book! It’s a fiery, passionate standalone romance about two rival sports agents with competitive streaks a mile wide. They had a fling a year ago, but it ended badly, and now they compete constantly for clients. They hate each other, trading barbs at every chance. Or do they hate each other? Is there more to the past and their feelings than they let on? I had a blast writing this romance as it was one of my first with this trope and I was able to push these characters hard!

If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would you choose and why?

I’d love to go to a diner with Nora Roberts, have a meal, and hear about why she loves writing romance. She’s disciplined, talented and so strong. I greatly admire her and would love to learn more about how she does it all!

What’s in your Netflix queue?

My deep desire for season six of Schitt’s Creek.

What books are currently on your nightstand?

I’m reading The Idea of You by Robinne Lee, Steadfast by Sarina Bowen and Insatiable by Melanie Harlow.

What is a typical day like for you?

Dogs. Dogs. Dogs. It revolves around dogs! They wake me up, I feed them, walk them, and let them out all day along. Somehow I manage to write books and run a business. But usually, even when I am doing those two things, I am covered in small dogs. Wouldn’t have it any other way!

What scene in Overnight Service was your favorite to write?

Hands down, the scene when Josh goes to Haven’s hotel room in Vegas, ready to confront her about something she said. They definitely have a heated argument. In the sheets!
