Interview with Cash Davenport ~ Indie Author of the Month M. Leighton

So, I have the great honor of interviewing Cash Davenport…you know THE Cash Davenport-bad boy, bar owning, smooth talking, sex pot from Down To You. *dodges a barrage of stilettos*

*peeps out from behind chair* Okay, I have seriously been fangirling over this interview for like a month! Not even kidding! I was bouncing around the office telling my coworkers and texting my friends and fam that I was interviewing Cash Davenport! Mostly I got the “you’ve lost your marbles” look but I know you guys will fully understand the excitement of this milestone in my blogging career. Key word being excitement. ;)

Alright ladies and gentlemen, let’s get on with the fun.

I walk into Dual sitting down at the bar and order myself my new favorite drink, sangria. I pull out my notebook like the dorky girl that I am. I'm still getting used to these interview things and I am about to meet THE Cash Davenport. Notes are definitely necessary.

I jump when he suddenly appears at my side, leaning one elbow on the bar.  

Hi, he says with a playful yet wicked grin.  Come here often? 

I’m dumbfounded. Of course.  He’s even hotter in person than I expected him to be.  When I say nothing, he straightens and offers me his hand and a wink.  

Cash  Davenport.  You must be Michelle.

I take a moment to regain my composure. Hi, Cash! It's nice to meet you. Thanks so much for taking the time to chat with me today. Are you ready for my interrogation? *winks* Let's start with an easy one, what is your favorite childhood memory?

*narrows eyes and purses lips*  Hmmm, I’d say anything involving my brother and I beating the hell out of each other.  Unless you mean older childhood.  My favorite memories from high school involve females and are much more…entertaining.  *winks again*

*blushes* Avoiding eye contact I check my notes. So, when you showed up at the bachelorette party, what were you thinking? Were you seriously going to strip for those crazy ladies or did you only do it because Olivia was enlisted to help? 

No, I wouldn’t have stripped for them.  Not even if they’d asked.  But when I saw Olivia…  I’d have stripped for her. Or, better yet, let her strip me. 

I blush refocusing on my notes, again. What does Cash Davenport like to do in his free time?

*grins*  You want specifics? *laughs*  Nah, I read a lot, believe it or not.  Law journals, magazine articles about motorcycles or bar management.  Sometimes I even like to just take the bike out for a ride.  Feel the wind in my face, the speed of the bike, the freedom of the road.


I smile glance at my notes and grin wider. Be careful how you answer this one, so do you still think accounting is for spinsters who wear their hair in a bun and have a closet full of orthopedic shoes?

*throws head back and laughs*  I couldn’t have been more wrong.  My mental picture of them now has more to do with short skirts and white cotton panties.

*giggles* Relaxing a bit I continue. If you could spend one day with anyone, dead or alive who would it be and why?

My mother.  I miss her.  And I never got to tell her goodbye.

Aww, I'm sorry, Cash. Enough of the past how bout we look to the future. Where do you see yourself in five years?

Hopefully still doing what I’m doing. I love the diversity of my work life.  But I wouldn’t mind having a family of my own to add to that. One day…

One day with Olivia, I assume. So, what is one thing no one knows about you?

That I like to cook.


Seriously, can he get any more perfect? We all have our vices and secrets. Do you have any guilty pleasures you'd like to share?

*wicked grin* I don’t know about guilty pleasures.  I never feel guilty in taking pleasure. Or in giving it.

*Shakes head* Boxers or briefs?

How about neither.

*Shakes head again* I should have expected that.*giggles* What's next on the agenda for bad boy Davenport?

I don’t really know.  I don’t look too far into the future.  It’s a habit I got into when Dad first went to prison.  I found it easier to think of the immediate future, taking things one step at a time.  Life is more controllable that way.

Alright, we are almost done. I know you're a man who likes speed so you should enjoy this. Answer with the first thing that comes to mind.

Song?    Pour Some Sugar on Me *winks*
