Interview with Remy Marshall from Crash Pad
Remy Marshall is in the building! And, wow, he’s quite handsome, isn’t he!
Remy, what made you decide to go into Emergency Medicine? A couple or things, I suppose. My dad is a doc—an orthopedic surgeon. Growing up around medicine, I gravitated toward it as a career. But orthopedics didn’t interest me as a specialty. I’m more of a medicine doctor than a surgeon.
You’ve been training for a marathon. Is that something you’ve always wanted to do? I’ve actually run marathons before. For the last year I’ve been training hard, getting my endurance up and my time down. My goal is to win in my age group. My friends think I’m trying to prove something to my old man, but it’s really all about meeting a personal goal.
The first time you met Jamie you seemed kind of smitten. Did that surprise you? Yeah. It did. He’s attractive, but there’s also this scrappy independence there that just blows me away. Most of the guys I’ve dated in the past like the money and prestige that go along with dating a doctor; I never felt like they were interested in just me, like they’d drop me if the bucks and the job weren’t factors. But Jamie doesn’t care about that stuff. In fact, my job almost put him off considering any sort of relationship with me.
How is the future looking? Pretty good, as long as Jamie stays off rollerblades.
Blurb for Crash Pad
Physician Remy Marshall has two loves: Emergency Medicine and running. Work doesn’t leave much time to meet guys, and most seem more interested in his bank account than him. With a week off to train for a marathon, Remy plans to make the most of his precious vacation. The last thing he needs is a distraction.
Jamie Sutton is new to the area. He hopes to make a fresh start after leaving an abusive relationship with an orthopedic surgeon. He’s got a new job as a massage therapist and wants to meet some nice guys. Against his better judgment, Jamie decides the best way to meet a cute rollerblader he’s seen in the park is on wheels.
With attention on his watch and not where he’s going, Remy crashes into Jamie and fractures the first-time rollerblader’s ankle. Jamie has no one to help him after the injury; Remy proposes Jamie stay with him. Jamie is reluctant, but it’s a better option than staying with the odd guy in the neighboring motel room. As the two get acquainted, Jamie’s past comes calling. Remy discovers the prize he really wants isn’t a medal in a marathon, but the man right in front of him.
This sound like a great book and one that I am going to pick up and read. To read more about the author, Whitley Gray, visit her website.
