Hothouse Flower Promo Tour: Daisy & Ryke Character Interview, & GIVEAWAY!!! #CharacterInterview #Giveaway

In just over a week, Hothouse Flower releases!!!!! :D 

I seriously cannot wait, but in the mean time, Krista and Becca Ritchie are sharing some awesome teasers, banners, interviews, playlists...and so much more in Hothouse Flower's Promo Tour...and today I've got a character interview with Daisy and Ryke!!! :D And if you keep scrolling, there's a giveaway, too! ;)

First, here's a bit about Hothouse Flower:

Title: Hothouse Flower
Author: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Series: Calloway Sisters #2 (Spin-Off of the Addicted series)
Pub Date: March 28th, 2014

Ryke Meadows, meet Daisy Calloway ... she’s all grown up.

Twenty-five-year-old Ryke Meadows knows he’s hard to love. With a billion-dollar inheritance, a track-star resume, and an alpha-male personality—he redefines the term likable asshole. But he’s not living to make friends. Or enemies. He just wants to free climb three of the toughest mountains in Yosemite without drama or interruption.

And then he receives a distressed call from a girl in Paris—a girl that he has never been allowed to have.

Daisy Calloway is eighteen. Finally. With her newfound independence, she can say goodbye to her overbearing mother and continue her modeling career. Next stop, Paris. Fashion Week begins with a bang, and Daisy uncovers the ugly reality of the industry. She wants to prove to her family that she can live on her own, but when everything spirals out of control, she turns to Ryke to keep her secrets.

As Daisy struggles to make sense of this new world and her freedom, she pushes the limits and fearlessly rides the edge. Ryke knows there’s deep hurt beneath every impulsive action. He must keep up with Daisy, and if he lets her go, her favorite motto—“live as if you’ll die today”—may just come true.

And here's my interview with Daisy and Ryke! :D I've underlined my questions, and Ryke and Daisy's names are before each of their answers! ENJOY!!! :D


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, Daisy and Ryke! It’s fantastic to have you here! :D
Ryke: Thanks…*watches Daisy sit cross-legged on the chair*
Daisy: *catches him watching and smiles* “What?”
Ryke: *shakes his head and looks back at Ambur* “Just to warn you, she’s going to be moving a lot during this interview. She can’t fucking sit still.”
Daisy: *looks to Ambur* “Just to warn you, he’s going to curse a lot.” *turns to Ryke* “And just to warn you, we’re not being filmed.”
Ryke: “They could be describing what we’re fucking doing outside of the quotes.”
Daisy: *scoots chair closer to Ryke and wraps her arm around his waist*
Ryke: *gives her a look* “You’re pushing it, Calloway.” *leaving her arm around him, he looks to Ambur again* “What’s the first question?”

I’m going to start with a nice easy question, what was your first thought when you two met?
Ryke: “Who’s that crazy fucking chick?”
Daisy: *smiles* “Really?”
Ryke: “No.”
Daisy: “Well, I thought he was hot.”
Ryke: *brushes her arm off his waist* “She was fifteen when I first met her.”
Daisy: “He was twenty-two.” *unties her shoelace and starts making a braid*
Ryke: *points at Daisy* “What’d I tell you? And we’re only two fucking minutes in.”

What’s your favourite thing about each other?
Ryke: *runs hand through his hair* “My brother is going to fucking kill me.”
Daisy: “It’s my ass, isn’t it?”
Ryke: “It’s not your ass.”
Daisy: “My hair?”
Ryke: “Definitely not your fucking hair.”
Daisy: “I give up.”
Ryke: “But you still have every fucking body part to go?” *pulls her close to check the time on her watch (he’s not wearing one)* “We only have three thousand more fucking hours.”
Daisy: “My favorite thing about Ryke is his sarcasm and profanity.”
Ryke: *rolls eyes* “Next question.”

Even though you’ve got a bit of an age gap between you, you’re amazing friends, why do you think you get along so well? 
Daisy: *glances at Ryke while she pulls off the second shoe string* “Are we amazing?”
Ryke: “No, we’re horrible fucking friends.”
Daisy: “Thought so.” *nudges his shoulder with her elbow* “We should probably answer this one straight.”
Ryke: *shrugs* “She’s fun to hang out with…I don’t know. We both just don’t give a shit about the media, no offense.”
Daisy: “And we both like jumping off cliffs.” *grins mischievously*
Ryke: *watches her braid the second shoelace* “That too.”

How difficult has it been for both of you dealing with your siblings’ addictions?
Ryke: *pauses* “It’s not easy.”
Daisy: *looks over her shoulder* “Hey, is that a water fountain? Do you mind if I…?” *gets up to get a drink*
Ryke: “She doesn’t like to talk about Lily’s addiction to the press.”

 Are you excited that people finally get to read your story in Hothouse Flower?
Daisy: *returns with two cups of water and passes one to Ryke* “Oh yeah.” *takes a sip and sets the cup on the floor* “It’s going to be freeing, you know?”
Ryke: *a brief smile escapes as he looks at Daisy* “Yeah, I’m happy about it.”

 QUICK! Random question time! And feel free to explain if you like! :)
Coffee or Tea?
Ryke: “Coffee.”
Daisy: “Coffee, but I love energy drinks and prefer Lightning Bolt! because it tastes so good.”
Ryke: *raises his brows at her* “Like that plug wasn’t obvious.” (Lightning Bolt! is made by Fizzle, a world-renowned soda company founded by Greg Calloway, Daisy’s father.)
Daisy: “Shh, my dad will be happy and you could use some brownie points.” *smiles bright*
Ryke: “How about I just make you fucking brownies?”
Daisy: “I love your fucking brownies.”
Ryke: *shakes head* “Next.”

Reading or Watching TV?
Ryke: “Watching TV.”
Daisy: “Like Naked and Afraid. And Blue Lagoon.”
Ryke: “Blue Lagoon isn’t a television show.”
Daisy: *mock gasps* “It isn’t? What lies have I been fed?!” *stands up on the chair theatrically* “Wha—” *the chair teeters and it slips beneath her. Ryke stands and catches her before she face plants.*
Ryke: “How about sitting on your ass this time?”
Daisy: “Can my ass sit on your lap?”
Ryke: “Let’s try the chair first.”

Dog or Cat?
*everyone is back in their seats*
Ryke: “Dog.”
Daisy: “Ditto.”

Being along or in a group?
Ryke: “Either.”
Daisy: “A group. I don’t like being alone.”

Chocolate or candy?
Ryke: “If I don’t say chocolate, Daisy might fucking kill me.”
Daisy: “Chocolate is sex.”
Ryke: *shakes head* “No it’s not.”
Daisy: *smiles wide*

Night or Day?
Ryke: “Night.”
Daisy: “Day.”
Ryke: *hesitates* “She hates nighttime.”
Daisy: “It’s not my favorite thing.”
Ryke: “That’s a fucking understatement.”

Summer or Winter?
Ryke: “Summer. The weather is better to climb.”
Daisy: “Summer.” *concentrates on the second shoelace braid*

 Do you have anything else you’d like to say?
Daisy: *distracted, she pulls Ryke closer and snatches his hand.* “This is for you.”
Ryke: *watches her tie the lace around his wrist and then she ties one around hers.* “Cute. But how are you going to walk without shoelaces, sweetheart?”
Daisy: *kicks her shoes off* “Barefoot.”
Ryke: “Not fucking surprised.”

Thanks again for taking the time to visit! I’ve loved having you both here, and I’m extremely excited to read your story in Hothouse Flower!!
Daisy: *stands and waves* “Thanks for having us!”
Ryke: *grabs her around the waist and throws her over his shoulder. She laughs, and he kicks the door open as they leave*
