The Interview

(20 customer reviews)



I have secrets. She wants answers. Never the two shall meet.

When Sadie Danes strolls into my life with a notepad and an attitude, it’s just another interview. At first.

As an A-list movie star, everyone wants a piece of me, especially now that I’m back in New York doing what I love… the theater. Broadway.

But this theater critic is different. She sees past the actor, into the man hiding in the spotlight. She’s real. Beautiful. My Juliet.

A simple interview turns into more. And that’s a problem.

I have a past.

Secrets that can ruin not just me but my brother, ruin everything.

“I will be punished for indulging in your sweetness, dear Juliet.” My lips barely moved as I spoke against her inner thigh, but the impromptu grind in her hips told me she’d heard me clearly. “We are not fated to be together, yet I cannot stay away, and I willingly drown myself in sin for a taste of your love.”

Her panting hitched, though I detected a hint of amusement on her mouth similar to that which I’d seen when we sat across from each other in the pizzeria. “Romeo never said that.”

“No.” My voice was little more than a snarl. I pinned my eyes to hers, poised myself barely an inch above her loins, and licked my lips. “I’m saying it.”

Then, I swooped down upon her like a hawk on a helpless field mouse. My tongue plunged between her petals to drill into her soaked tunnel as my upper lip massaged her clit, which swelled with stimulation at my ministrations. Her entire body from ass to shoulders curved as gracefully as the St. Louis Arch, and she let out a plaintive moan that filled the room as thoroughly as the oxygen we breathed. Her flavor was, indeed, as sweet as I’d told her. Cherries. Ripe, juicy, delectable black cherries. I stroked my tongue along every ridge, taking special care to lap at the spongey bundle of nerves behind her pubic bone, and swallowed every drop of arousal I extracted.

    The critic and the thespian…4.5 stars!

    Tate McGrath, successful screen and theatre actor, is hiding secrets. He’s got answers for all the media outlets delivered with wit and charm. But when theatre critic, Sadie Danes scores an interview on opening night with the talented thespian, she knows there’s more to his story. So while dodging fans and cameras, Sadie gets a sense of how Tate’s life lacks a lot of privacy and personal time. There is something about Sadie that intrigues Tate to spend more time with her. She’s intriguing, bright, and a person who likes him for who he is as a person, instead of the bigger-than-life personality.

    Soon, Sadie realizes there might be more to why their relationship is a secret. Tate is unsure about revealing his tragic past to Sadie. Opening that wound is too painful and risks ruining his career and their budding relationship. Ms. Ward delivers more than I expected for this story. She weaves a bit of darkness and angst, adds heartbreak, tolerance, forgiveness, and love. My heart broke for Tate and his brother, but what an ending. The Interview finishes with such emotion. I wouldn’t change a thing. I received and voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    I found this story to be entertaining with a twist I didn’t see coming. Sadie is excited to do an interview with her crush, a simple assignment, right? Tate proved to be very charming as they took their interview on the run to avoid the mob of fans. When the interview becomes more, Sadie knew Tate was hiding something but would they break up before it comes to light, can Sadie believe what’s exposed? Good read, well paced and well written.

    Wow! Every book that I read of Alice’s I think it can’t be better than the last, but this one is most definitely better. I’m so impressed with the amount of research that’s must be completed before writing a book. This book completely wrung me out by the emotions that were induced. My heart actually was hurting to read what happened to two young boys and how they survived what life dealt them. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to more by Alice Ward. I received an advance copy of this book from the author and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. I enjoyed this book. Another great book by this author.
    Sadie is a theater critic for The Apple newspaper. Her next review is for Concrete starting her favorite actor Tate McGrath and she has scored herself an interview with him.
    Tate is taking a break from film to go back to his roots at the theater. He’s so tired of all the fame and everything that goes with it. Including interviews. He can’t go anywhere with out a crowd forming.
    I would call this book a second chance romance with a HEA ending. Definitely recommend it.

    Alice Ward definitely knows how to take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. From elation at finding new love to gut-wrenching despair at its loss and everything in between we are taken on a journey with Sadie and Tate. This book shows us that we never really know a person and what their life has been like even when they live in the public eye. Alice is not afraid to tackle the tough topics and make us really think about things we would rather not. Her attention to even the smallest of details like the creaking floorboards or crumbling sidewalks puts you right into the scene with the characters and draws the emotions out of the reader as much as her characters. I couldn’t put the book down and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

  6. Moriah

    Alice Ward shows us once again why we love her writing. This book was full of so many different emotions. Good, bad, sad, heartbreaking … Sadie and Tate start with an innocent interview and end with both of their lives changed forever.

  7. MyOhMy

    Another Alice Ward winner. As usual you get well developed characters and a fast moving storyline that will keep you reading, anxious to see what’s next. This story was about Tate and Sadie finding a way to HEA. Great chemistry that you could feel from their very first meeting with enough angst to give them a chance to find a common path. Loved the characters and story. He’s a Hollywood success story that has returned to his Broadway roots and she’s the theater critic who is interviewing him. Highly recommended. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC).

    What do you do when your job is to interview your celebrity crush and sparks fly? You roll with it and find true love. But when the story delves into a past that Tate would rather not make public will Sadie interpret that as his feelings are not real? Or will the actor finally walk into the light and be freed from his horrific past. With beautifully written characters and so much depth to the storyline that I did not want it to end – this is a must read. Once again, Alice Ward creates characters and worlds that the reader wishes they were part of.

    An amazing journey, of which the reader becomes a fellow passenger!!

    Totally captivating story of Sadie, theatre critic and interviewer and Tate McGrath, Broadway star, turned Hollywood actor, and once again Broadway star. Tate does not grant many interviews, in fact expects this to be his last for the foreseeable future. Sadie has followed Tate’s career from the beginning and is fearful that his stint in Hollywood will have hampered his ability on stage.

    The interview reveals much about both characters. Once Sadie overcomes her initial hesitancy she treats him as a person not an icon. The fans keep driving these two deeper into hiding to complete the interview without interruption.

    Tate pursues Sadie liking her personality and humor: “She’d treated me like a normal person, which, in my hyper-famous world, was a treat. She was sophisticated and confident without the arrogance that tended to come with such confidence, yet she’d had a measure of quirkiness and uncertainty that made her adorable.”

    When it becomes apparent Tate is hiding something Sadie confronts him for the truth, suspecting there is another woman. The results are both devastating and revealing. Definitely a stellar read – which I can give my highest recommendation!!

    This was an emotional read that will suck you in and give you all the feels! It was heart-wrenching, smoking hot and the passion was incredible.

    Sadie is given the opportunity of a lifetime…to interview Tate McGrath, a box office and broadway star. She has followed his career from the beginning and is a total fangirl! It’s her dream come to life!

    Meeting Tate McGrath is surreal. The interview takes a few unexpected turns and she finds that there is an attraction she never expected.

    Tate is beyond sexy. He’s not forthcoming and likes to keep his private life out of the public eye. He’s successful, all alpha and a bit cocky.

    These two end up in a relationship, but it’s complicated. Tate has secrets and he’s not willing to share. And Sadie wants more and isn’t willing to have only part of Tate. She wants it all!

    This story was emotionally charged and shows us the worst parts of humanity. My heart broke for Tate and all he endured. The burden of his past has weighed him down for too long and losing Sadie just isn’t a price he’s willing to pay.

    There is freedom in the truth. And finding the person that makes you feel worthy of love is someone you fight for and never let go. Such a beautiful story of healing, making your own happiness and letting love in!!!

    This book was amazing. I have read almost all her stories but I still have a couple stragglers to get in. its hard when the new ones keep coming out! There is never any disappointment when reading an Alice Ward book. This one is no different, in fact, I think I found a new favorite. This book will make you feel like you are heading down a particular path as we watch two people recognize their feelings of interest in one another and decide if they are wanting to take the fall, will the other person catch them or not? Now not only do we have a great story with just Sadie and Tate as they attempt this journey together but we also get to see part of their pasts and how they impact the story and quite possibly the ending of this story. If you are looking for a book that will take you through a laundry list of emotions, that will pull you in and not spit you out until the end and lastly, that will leave you with a sense of ‘great book’, then this is the book for you.

    I voluntarily read and reviewed this book as an ARC but as always I have also purchased a copy to add to my ‘Read Again and Again’ library.

    Sadie is a journalist for The Apple, she is giving the opportunity of a lifetime when she lands an interview with Tate McGrath, an A list movie star. When these two meet sparks fly and it isn’t long before they grow to care for eachother. But both Sadie and Tate have issues from the past that will threaten their budding relationship. This was a beautifully written, emotional love story that will keep you captivated from the first page until the last.
    I voluntarily received an advanced arc copy for an honest review.

  13. Tiffany

    This is a little different style to what Alice normally writes and I really enjoyed it. It’s well written and packs great emotion. The twists and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat just waiting to see what happens! You don’t want to miss this!

  14. Rita

    Wowza !! And that is not saying enough! This is one of Alice’s best. The way she tells the story with so much emotion it just gets to the heart and all your other feelings. Sadie’s loving friend, Tates close well meaning brother, they added so much to this story. Love found but tested by their pasts. This is definitely a must read. Just make sure you have a box of Kleenex close by!

  15. Cheryl Petit

    Brilliantly written with a well thought out storyline that’s steamy and heart-wrenching. There’s secrets, mystery, humor, great banter between the hero and heroine, angst, heartbreak, sadness, undeniable chemistry, steamy scenes… everything a romance story should be.

  16. Carol

    This is another terrific story from Alice Ward that drew me in from the beginning. I loved the interactions and flirty banter between Sadie and Tate when they first met. Their attraction is immediate and intense and their romance unfolds organically. Tate’s secret past however, puts their future into jeopardy. Can he come clean about the dark demons that haunt him and the secrets he keeps to protect his brother? And what about Sadie – can she move forward knowing that Tate’s evasive about his childhood? This story is very well written and features well-defined characters. There’s laughter; the joy of a new romance; secrecy; mystery; tragedy and heartbreak – a wide range of emotions. It’s pretty much what we’ve come to expect and enjoy from one of Alice’s books. I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  17. zan Tonge

    An intriguing story featuring Sadie and Tate – how secrets destroy, the truth redeems – but, timing is everything! Incredible chemistry between these two, and an extremely interesting backstory to keep you glued to your chair all night. Not wanting to give away the story, but it can be a bit heartbreaking, however the HEA does happen.

  18. Patricia Anthony

    Wow – this is a very emotional story that will surprise you with it’s secrets. Alice Ward never fails to write an incredible romance with amazing characters.

    Tate and Sade have an instant, very familiar and comfortable attraction but, their relationship doesn’t go very far because of Tate’s hidden past and unexpected secrets.

    My only disappointment with their story is with Sade. I found her character to be lacking. It is not only Tate who has issues. Sadie’s past has also affected their relationship but, that facet of her personality is not discovered until late in the story which, made her reactions to Tate confusing at times.

    Aside from my little bit of annoyance with Sade, I highly recommend this book.

  19. Andrea L

    Sadie is a very strong character as well is Tate! While reading this story i find they have more in commen then they realize. Secrets seem to be one of the common grounds they share. I like that AW made Sadie a strong but sweet lead journalist and with all of her poking and prodding trying to get more out of Tate makes you kind of want to scan ahead to see what is he hiding and will she be able to see his past? I love the HEA they share but defiantly a few tears i held back. I would defiantly recommend this book!

  20. Kristen Lewendon

    An Alice Ward book is never afraid to tackle a difficult subject matter. This one takes on several. And in so doing, it takes us on a twisty, gut-churning emotional roller-coaster ride. Sadie and Tate are such dynamic, complex characters. Even the people around them are something special. I want so badly to say more but I’m afraid I’ll be revealing spoilers. In the wake of recent scandals and headlines, I am in awe of this author for reminding us that there are always more victims than we ever hear about, even those we’d never think could be victims.
    I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
