Braydon Walker has always shared everything with his identical twin brother Brendon—hopes, dreams, career choices, and yes, even women. Known for tag-teaming their love interests in every way imaginable, Braydon is surprised and unnerved when he finds himself wanting to keep their newest lover all to himself. Will the twins’ relationship evolve to fit this new mold, or will Braydon’s desire for independence tear them apart?

She is back ladies and she's better than ever with the return of those delicious Walker Brothers we all know and love!  I've been desperately waiting for this one since Holidays with the Walker Brothers came out last year.  Ever since Braydon wanted to go his separate way and keep the girl for himself for the first time ever, my heart broke for him and I needed more and boy did Nicole deliver!

After the ultimatum that Brendon threw down in Holidays with the Walker Brothers last year, readers have wondered where the Walker Twins would end up.  Brendon has had trouble being separated from Braydon since they were days old.  They've shared everything together growing up, always having to have what the other did and that includes women.  But its not a jealous kind of take the woman away from the other, no these hot and sexy cowboys share their girls and its always worked for them even though others might find it strange.  In walks Jessie Prescott, the sister to Kylie Prescott whom is now married to the Twins brother, Travis and she triggers a powder keg of emotions inside Braydon that he's never had before.

Braydon has always been the "good" twin.  He's the one everyone has always wanted to be friends with in their arrangements.  Brendon is more the bad boy whom can talk himself out situations.  For their whole lives, Braydon has followed Brendon but now that he's met Jessie, he wants something for himself for the first time.  Jessie has been happy to go along with their threesome, it's fun and different and that was exactly what she needed when she followed her sister to Coyote Ridge.  But when feelings start to form for Braydon she isn't sure what to do.

And then you have Cheyenne Montgomery, the Country Music Superstar who occupies pretty much every waking moment of Brendon's thoughts.  The trouble is, Cheyenne isn't interested in being the filling in their hot twin sandwich and since Brendon can't think of a life without Braydon he decides to latch on to Jessie, to try to claim her for himself even though he knows how his twin feels for her.  Total dick move by the way but I promise he'll have some redeeming qualities by the end of Braydon.

The story is full of angst and heartache on all sides.  This triangle isn't really sure what to do and it's frustrating most of the time you want them to just iron it out.  But, life is messy and feelings get hurt and when you don't want to fall in love with someone you do.  People change, they grow up and the grow apart.  This is just as much a love story as it is a story of brotherly love.  Brendon has to find a way to come to terms with the fact that things won't always be the same and Braydon has to prove to his brother that as much as things have to change, he'll always be there for him.

But that's not all ... there's HEAT!  Yes, it appears our Braydon has a bit of a tiger inside him and he's kind of a smokin' hot dominant at that.  Holy Crap ladies ... this cowboy is all grown up and the love and passion he has for Jessie is sure to set your blood on fire and melt the panties right off of you!

I also have to throw a shout out to Travis and Sawyer because they were by far my favorite secondary characters in this one!  I am salivating for Sawyer's story and we'll get it in 2015.  We can also look forward to Brendon in 2015 as well to see if he can get his Happily Ever After as well!  Stick around because Nicole's going to keep you warm this winter, so pick up your copy of Braydon and any others you haven't read, this is one series that keeps getting better and better!

1. You first wrote Contemporary Romance on the Adult side as Nicole Edwards with Chasing Dreams and now you write it on the New Adult side as Timberlyn Scott with the Unhinged Series, how do the two differ in your opinion?
As Timberlyn, I’ve started to explore a different side of my writing. I got to use 1st person POV – something I never thought I would figure out, honestly – and I loved writing it. For just a little while, I got to jump into an entirely different world than what I’m used to. I think between the two personas, I get to delve deeper, get more creative than I ever thought I would.
2. SL Independent Publishing is comprised of members of your entire family now, what's it like working as a family operation especially with a joker like Colt all day?
It’s a dream come true. Of course, we all have our opinions and our differences, but we are ultimately working toward the same goal. I spent so many years working in corporate America for a huge company, this is refreshing.
3. When do your best ideas come to you? Depends.
I try to write first thing in the morning because my brain is fresh. But, I find that ideas come at all times. I keep a pen and paper beside my bed (or my phone, worst case) and I jot things down all the time. I will say that it is at night, after I’ve hit my word goal that some of the best ideas have come to me. However, it also means there are times I’m rewriting an entire storyline.
4. What led you to want to entwine all your series together under Nicole Edwards? It just happened.
When I started writing Alluring Indulgence, I realized there was a lot the Walker brothers could learn from my Club Destiny crew and I went from there. When I read, I always wonder what happened to my favorite characters, so I thought that by making them pop up in the other series, readers would get to experience them again, but in a different way.
5. Now that you've wrapped up the Unhinged Series with Timberlyn Scott, do you have another New Adult series in the works?
Not just yet. The Unhinged series came to me one day and I jumped right into it without stopping. I’m waiting for another idea to come up. I thought I had one, but once I started writing it, I realized it needed the spicy, Nicole Edwards heat, so I switched. I’ll have more information on that one in the coming weeks.
6. I know this will be like asking a parent to name their favorite child, but do you have a character who has been the most fun to write?
I think I love all the characters for different reasons. I love Luke McCoy (Temptation and Devotion, Club Destiny) because he seemed so averse to what was happening to him. It was exciting to see him change right before my eyes. Of course, there was Ethan (Alluring Indulgence) – his story was the most emotional one I’ve written to date. I spent a long time with him and I got to know him in ways I never thought possible. Then there is Xander Boone from Perception (Club Destiny). That man stole my breath, sometimes literally. I can’t forget Cooper Krenshaw and Dalton Calhoun (Devil’s Bend) because they surprised me with their arrival. I hadn’t been expecting them and they’ve been fun to write. And of course, Sebastian Trovato (The Unhinged Series)… Hmmm… that man made me an emotional wreck for a while, but seeing the progression and the turn of events was exciting.
7. Do you have a favorite amongst all your series that you have written so far? If so, which one?
Just like the characters, I love each series for different reasons. I definitely don’t have a favorite because I love writing every one of them.
8. Will Beau and Ethan go somewhere outside Texas to get married "legally"?
I doubt it. For them, they’ve got things covered and in their eyes, it’s about the love. Now, if Texas ever wakes up and gets with the program, they’ll definitely make it legal and the rest of us will be rooting right along with all of the other couples who deserve to pledge their love to the person who completes them.
9. There wasn't much in Braydon about Kaleb and Zoey, do you think we'll see more of them again soon now that they are parents?
I think there’s more to come for all of the Walker brothers, past and future. But you’ll have to wait and see.
10. Several of your couples have settled down, gotten married, and had children of their own or will soon ... what advise would you give to new parents to keep their love lives spicy?
My suggestion, as I’ve learned with my own marriage, is to make sure you remember what made you fall in love in the first place – think about the firsts that you’ve experienced together. My husband and I are best friends. We talk about everything. And yes, we like to reminisce, which is a huge reminder as to what caused that spark in the beginning. Make sure you keep your finger on the pulse of the relationship and sometimes you may have to take a step back from the stresses of life to make that happen.
