#chicklitlove: meet jason beaumont

Blogger's Note: In honor of Valentine’s Day, the ladies of #ChickLitChat are celebrating #ChickLitLove all week. Today, I’m sharing a fun, flirty Q&A with the crushable Jason Beaumont from Hard Hats and Doormats. Enjoy!

Celebrity you've been told you look like: Oh, I hate questions like this. No one has ever really told me I looked like a celebrity, except once a girl said, “You look kind of like that guy who played Lancelot in ‘Arthur.’” I had to look up who that was – Ioan Gruffold. He’s quite a bit older than I am, though. So… I guess I look like me or kind of a younger version of this guy:

Naughty food you like to indulge in: What do you mean by naughty? Like hotdogs because they're shaped like... Nevermind. I suppose the naughtiest food is having dessert before dinner. (Did I answer that right, Ms. Laura?)

What you wear to bed: Boxers.

Favorite body part of the opposite sex: A beautiful smile.

How many people you've said "I love you" to: My high school girlfriend, a college girlfriend, but no one other than my mama since.

Relationship deal-breaker: Dishonesty. I work with enough liars to have to deal with them in my personal life.

Your first kiss - How old were you? Did you instigate it?: I'd like to think I'm a southern gentleman. That may or may not be true, but either way, I don't kiss and tell.

Do you have any tattoos or piercings? If so, describe: None.

Favorite alcoholic drink: I'm a simple guy - tap beer.

Describe your dream girl: Smart, funny, witty, hard working, compassionate... and while we're talking dreams, someone who gets along with my mama and can bake. The way to my heart really is through the stomach. I may have met her already, though...

About the Book
Lexi Burke has always been a stickler for following rules and procedures. As a human resources manager for a leading Gulf Coast chemical company, it’s her job to make sure everyone else falls in line, too.

But after losing out on a big promotion–-because her boss sees her as too much of a yes-woman––Lexi adopts a new policy of following her heart instead of the fine print. And her heart knows what it wants: Jason Beaumont, a workplace crush who is off limits based on her previous protocol.

While navigating a new romance and interoffice politics, Lexi must find the confidence to stand on her own or face a lifetime of following someone else’s orders.
Who says nice girls have to finish last?
