Do you think of Tom as a nice ordinary guy who could offer Aydan a supportive and fulfilling relationship, or a pest who doesn’t know how to take ‘no’ for an answer? Or somewhere in between?
How much does Aydan’s reaction to Tom colour your opinion?
When I wrote the first books of the Never Say Spy series without filters, I thought I’d get lambasted in the reviews and I was surprised when it didn’t happen as much as I’d expected. Some people do still complain about the coarse language and I’ve responded to them here, but I’d like to hear from you folks who have stuck with me:
How do you feel about Aydan’s potty mouth? How would the stories change for you if Aydan never (or rarely) swore? How about Hellhound? Is it different when he does it?
Alberta’s chinook winds play a part in the plot of Never Say Spy. Had you ever heard of that phenomenon before you read the book? Did you find the extreme temperature change described in the book believable at first reading?
When you’re reading a series set in a location unfamiliar to you, do geographical differences pop out or blend into the story for you?
Do you look up additional facts about the setting in order to enrich your reading experience, or do you rely on the story to inform you?
How do you feel about the fact that Aydan has physical relationships with two men concurrently? What makes you feel that way? How would your opinion change if Aydan were a male involved with two females?
How do you feel about the futuristic weapons and technology in the series? Which tech item is the most plausible/implausible? If you could have just one of Aydan’s gadgets, which would it be?
What story element(s) keep you coming back for more instalments in a series? What makes you lose interest in a series?
If the relationship tension between Aydan, Kane, and Hellhound were permanently resolved, would that effectively end the Never Say Spy series for you? Why or why not?
In Book 1, NEVER SAY SPY, what did you identify as Aydan’s key characteristics at the beginning of the book? Did that change by the end of the series? How have Aydan’s personality and life experiences shaped the direction of the story both in Book 1 and throughout the series? How has your opinion changed as you read the subsequent books in the series?
