Interview with Lexi Madison, Author of Don’t Fall For Him
08 Oct 2019
What can you tell us about your new release, Don’t Fall For Him?
Well, what’s hotter than finally having someone you thought you could never have? I mean, I think all of our teenage years involved a friend of our brother’s or sister’s or cousin’s, who we wanted but was totally off limits. This book is really about getting to experience that moment.
I love stories that make you feel like you’re falling in love, right there with the characters. Where your heart clenches and you get that stomach flip every time the characters interact. ‘Don’t Fall For Him’ has ALL of that. It’s a fun, sexy, butterfly-inducing tale, of two total opposites who are totally meant to be together.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
My mom! She always loved to write but she never took the ‘leap’ toward her dream. She still has a dozen manuscripts sitting in her desk at home that she’s never published. I know that she regrets her fears of never ‘going for it’ and so I hope that my love for reading and writing and my willingness to ‘leap’ into it will help inspire her, just as she has inspired me in so many ways!
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
Top 5 books? JUST FIVE??? Okay fine! I would say the list goes as follows (in no particular order)
– The Deal by Elle Kennedy
– Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
– On Dublin Street, Samantha Young
– Buttons & Lace, Penelope Sky
– Radiance, Grace Draven
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
Omg! I think I would choose LJ Shen! I would say ‘WOMAN, TELL ME EVERYTHING!’
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
The adventure that comes each time you put fingers to keyboard. I get to fall in love for a living, that’s freaking awesome!
What is a typical day like for you?
OMG, is it crazy to say, a total mess??? I mean, I wish I had some sort of system or organization but I don’t. It’s one messy day to the next. Sometimes I am writing late, sometimes early, sometimes it flows, sometimes it doesn’t.
What scene in Don’t Fall For Him was your favorite to write?
Without spoiling it, it’s when Libby meets with Ian at the coffee shop and they’re just talking, but there is so much great back and forth.
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
Accept the chaos. Thrive in the chaos. Nothing in life is easy or perfect and if you can get through the chaos and learn to embrace it, you can handle ANYTHING!
