We have a fun treat for you today. Not only do we have Dare Barrons on today talking about himself but we have his brother’s Ethan and Nash. Dare wasn’t really excited about them joining him but they figured it’s their job as his older brothers to torment him.
TBRG: Who has been the biggest influence in your life?
DB: Definitely my brother, Nash. He’s always been there for me, even when we went to separate foster homes. He brought me old clothes and food. He looked out for me in every way he could.
TBRG: What is the one thing your family would be the most surprised to know about you?
DB: You really want me to go there? I was responsible for someone’s death.
NB: No, you were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
DB: I should have done something.
EB: Get over yourself. I had to. You can’t live with regrets, they’ll eat you alive.
TBRG: Where is the one place you have always wanted to go, a place on your bucket list?
DB: What’s a bucket list? Kidding. I don’t know. I’d say Vegas but I’m not much of a partier anymore. Learned my lesson there. Maybe some place with a beach.
NB: He’d bring Liza so he could watch her in a bikini.
EB: In that case make it a nude beach.
DB: Do you want me to regret forgiving you?
TBRG: Who’s your favorite author to read?
DB: I’m not much of a reader.
NB: John Grisham.
DB: You’re such a lawyer.
TBRG: What book are you reading now?
DB: Not reading.
TBRG: If you weren’t a cop what would you be?
DB: Lost. Being a cop saved me.
TBRG: What is your guilty pleasure?
DB: And nothing guilty about it.
TBRG: Movies or tv and which movie or tv show is your favorite?
DB: Ocean’s Eleven
NB: Doesn’t that go against you being a cop and all?
DB: Shut up.
TBRG: If you had a day to do whatever you wanted what would you do?
EB: He has a one track mind.
NB: He means sex with Liza.
TBRG: How’s your relationship with your brothers now?
DB: They’re still pains in the ass as you can tell from this interview. But they’re my brothers. Ethan and I have come a long way. Nash and I have some things to work out – as I learned throughout the book – but we’ll get there. I have faith.
NB: So does Ethan.
EB: Very funny. Seriously I’m grateful for this second chance. We’re all doing pretty good.
NB: Definitely getting there.
TBRG: How did you feel about Carly telling your story?
DB: She liked telling my story best.
TBRG: What do you want us to know about you?
DB: Looks can be deceiving. I’m not the easy going brother everyone thinks I am. I have a lot of baggage and I’m still working through it. Nobody knows that though.
TBRG: Using 3-5 adjectives how would you describe yourself?
DB: Focused, determined, loyal (to those who’ve earned it), and Repentant.
NB: Like a puppy dog.
TBRG: Using 3-5 adjectives how would you describe your siblings?
DB: Ethan’s a miracle worker.
EB: That’s not an adjective.
DB: You turned your life around, you turned Tess around, I’m in awe.
NB: I may be sick.
DB: You’re not so bad either, when you stop taking yourself and everyone else so seriously.
TBRG: Using 5 adjectives how would you describe Liza?
DB: Beautiful, Independent, Brave, Feisty, Loving.
TBRG: What do you love most about Liza?
DB: Her ability to see the best in people, even her no good brother.
EB: Don’t let her hear you talking about him like that.
DB: I saved his ass and she knows it.
NB: Because you love her.
DB: Yeah. I do.
TBRG: Can you tell us which of your co-workers has agreed to let Carly tell their story first?
DB: You want that secret? The book is called PERFECT FIT and the first two up are Cara Hartley, a damn good cop and Sam Marsden’s brother, Mike. You haven’t met Mike yet but Cara has … turns out they share a past – make that a night – OK that’s it. I can’t talk about this anymore. You know, Blue Wall of Silence and all that.
TBRG: Ok this is a question for all three of you, if you each had to plan a romantic night out what would it be?
DB: Liza loves a night in doing nothing but drinking wine and making love. Works for me.
NB: Kelly would love it if we went back to the London Hotel in New York City where I proposed. Champagne on ice, room service, and just us. Perfect.
EB: I’d take Faith back to our honeymoon spot – a private villa in Turks and Caicos – complete privacy, skinny dipping, our own butler.
DB: Rub it in, why don’t you?
EB: Hey I offered to send both of you there – is it my fault you’ve all got too much pride to take me up on it?
DB: I can plan a romantic trip for my woman all on my own. But thanks, man.
Thank you to Ethan, Nash and Dare for joining us today. We have a fun treat as well. We are giving away a copy of either Ethan or Nash’s book plus some of Carly’s goodies, just tell leave a message for Carly. Contest is open to US only.
Police Officer Dare Barron has had a crush on Liza McKnight ever since he was a teenager. But despite his lifelong attraction, the closest he’s ever come to interacting with her is watching Liza regularly bail out her brother at the station. Dare’s dark past with Liza’s brother, Brian, has always kept him from pursuing her. But suddenly Liza finds herself in need of protection and Dare appoints himself as the man for the job. And while the sizzling attraction between Dare and Liza draws them together, the past that Dare and Brian share threatens to keep the two apart forever.
