Audio Tour, Giveaway & Excerpt: Just Like Heaven by T.L. Bradford
Length: 16 hours, 25 minutes
The Young Americans Series, Book 1
Noah Sinclair is best described as an egotistical, pompous, anal retentive, asshat. And those are his better qualities. Lately, Noah has lost touch with his playboy character “Jace” on the show Americana and can’t quite put his finger on why. The studio decides it is time to shake up his character by making him an offer he can’t refuse, literally. They will introduce a new love interest for his character “Jace.” Only this time, there’s a twist.
Josh Hill is up a creek and sinking fast. He’s got no job, no money, no credit and is about to be kicked out of his apartment. Opportunity comes in the form of a job offer from the show Americana. Everything should be perfect; only there is one hitch. He will be the new love interest for Noah Sinclair’s character on the beloved show.
So, opposites are supposed to attract, right? Not so fast. No one said life was that easy. Both actors find themselves in untested waters. Will they be able to play a same-sex couple with no prior experience authentically? Well, they say practice makes perfect.
Carefree, fun-loving Josh and uptight, overbearing Noah, realize they need to make the best of their bad situation and are forced to find common ground. Over time, their roles in each other’s lives become blurred. Is their attraction fake, or is it real? To top it off, Noah has a dark skeleton in his closet that can prevent them from ever moving forward.
Can they get on the same page and save both of their careers and their relationship?
Or will they end up yesterday’s tabloid fodder?

“You strut around like a king all day getting everything you want. You probably never had to fight for a single thing in your whole moronic life. It’s so easy for you, isn’t it, jock boy? Is that right? I bet it is. Mr. All-American poster boy. The football god who got more pussy than he could handle. Then you take a dump on anyone else who didn’t fit the bill. Everything falls into place for Joshua Hill!” He is starting to go off on a tangent now, and all I can do is stand and listen to his crazy rant.
He continues, “I don’t have to justify myself to you! I don’t have to justify myself for anyone here! I know who I am! I know what I’m worth! You know what? This? All of this—” he gestures around the room then points between us, “—was a bad idea from the start.”
He moves around the room now, pacing. “Why couldn’t you leave me alone? Why did you have to come here and screw everything up and mess with my head! My life was fine. It was ordered! I was in control! And now that control has been taken away from me and my future rests with you. You! Ain’t that some shit!?! Some fresh-faced Hollywood trash that is the new flavor of the month, holds my future in his hands.” He’s not making any sense now, and I can see he is starting to shut down and turn away. I’m not letting this go so quickly.
I am blazing with heat now and ready for a fight. “Look who’s talking!?! Are you kidding me trust fund boy! Oh, yeah, I know your history too! The poor little rich boy who whines when someone else catches a break? You selfish little prick!”
Noah glares at me, but I don’t let up. “What’s the matter? Daddy didn’t get you the new jag you wanted for Christmas? If this isn’t the pot calling the kettle black, then I don’t know what is! Because if you took the time to learn anything about me besides what you find in some Wikipedia entry you would know that I earned every god damn minute of screen time I’ve gotten on this show. If you could be a human being for one single moment, you would know that the world does not rotate around you, Noah. This is not your planet that we all get to live on.”
I stab my finger into his chest and continue my rant. “If you talked to me, I could have told you that I had to take this role, not because I wanted to, but because I was one day away from living on the streets! But you never knew that because you can’t even be bothered to open your mouth and say a single civil word to me. So, tell me, Noah, what exactly in the hell I did that was so bad that you are willing to go and trash both of our careers!”
He yells out, “Because you fit!”
“I fit? What do you mean? I don’t understand?”
“Me! You fit me!”

T.L. always hated math, so it was a good thing she had a way with words. Since she was a shy and quirky kid; words were her best friends. She would imagine entire worlds in her head and talk to herself endlessly. Her mother wondered if she was speaking with ghosts for a while.
Her older sister was a voracious reader of trashy romance novels and would pass them down to her after she had finished them. T.L. was the only 10-year-old kid sitting in class reading “The Stud” by Jackie Collins during reading time. Oddly enough, she never got called out on it.
As she grew older, her tastes evolved, but one thing held fast; her undying attachment to love stories. One day out of the blue, she decided to write the love stories she always wanted to read instead of searching for her story. Since then, writing has been a dream fulfilled for her and she could not be happier.
She enjoys writing about love, regardless of gender and is a proud supporter of the LGBTQ community.
T.L. calls the Pacific Northwest her home and enjoys the quiet rural life of her little oceanside home with her playful/crazy husband and their giant dog Noah.
