Susi Interviews Paul from Father & Son by Michelle Day @ProdigalSon_1

Susi Interviews Paul Jensen from Father & Son by Michelle Day.

**This interview does contain some spoilers.  So, if you haven’t read the second book in the series, read that first.  

father and son cover michelle day

Susi: Thank you Paul for agreeing to this interview after so many years.  The last time we met you were a cheeky incorrigible teen.

Paul:  Hello Susi, looking beautiful as always.

Susi:  I’m glad to see you have grown into a gorgeous man.

Paul:  I have to do my bit to keep the scenery looking good don’t I?

 Susi:  *giggles*  Oh you are doing a fine job.

Your story in Father & Son was amazing.  I really did enjoy reading it.

Paul:  I’m glad to hear that. It was quite a journey. I had a lot of growing up to do. Indeed.

Susi:  You had many goals, one of them was to retire by the age of 30. Do you think that goal is attainable?

Paul:   Yes, I can retire at any time. Whether or not I am willing to relinquish control is another matter entirely.

 Susi:  What plans does Paul have after that?

Paul:  You may remember that I promised my father I would take everything. I am still working on that.

 Susi:  I can see you have fine taste.

Paul:  Always.

Susi:  Your clothing and watch are a giveaway. Who can you thank for your exquisite taste? I bet the lovely Monica had something to do with that.  How is your lovely mother?

Paul:  Mum is responsible for my watch, nice isn’t it? I have developed a taste for handmade suits and shirts, they just sit so much nicer on my body than off the rack. Mum does have an excellent sense of style so it would be safe to say that she has been a heavy influence in the way I dress.

 Susi:  The last time I saw you, you were about to embark in fatherhood.  How has fatherhood changed you?

Paul:  That’s actually a tough question. I don’t think it has changed me much. I’ve always been aware of my responsibilities. I make sure to provide well for my children but I have a lot of guilt over not spending very much time with them.

Susi:  I read about all of those women in your life.  Any regrets?

Paul:  Regrets about women? No. Never. Each has changed me in small ways, made me want to be a better man,

Susi:  If you could go back and change your past, would you?

Paul:   I might change a few things.

Susi:  What would you do differently?

Paul:  I would perhaps try not be quite so antagonistic towards my father but I doubt that would last for long. I would certainly be a better father to my children than I have been and their mother would have been Suzanne.

Susi:  Has your relationship with your father improved?  Not at all. We barely speak. Has becoming a grandfather softened him? His connection with my son surprises me. I’m not particularly comfortable with it but I think Gavin will get to know him in ways I never could and he enjoys my father’s company so I am happy for it to continue.

Susi:  You were quite generous with the women in your life.  Is the older Paul the same way?

Paul:  When I could afford to be generous as a young man, I was. That hasn’t changed. The only thing I am selfish with is my time but I am working to change that.

Susi:  I bet Suzie loves your generosity.

Paul:   I do like to lavish her with gifts and she does look good in diamonds. I haven’t heard her protest yet.

Susi:  Is Suzie a jealous woman?  You are a looker for sure.  I am sure women throw themselves at you.

Paul:   I would say she doesn’t display jealousy in the traditional sense but I am sure I give her cause for it at times. However, I have committed to her. I waited far too long to be with her to mess it up. It’s funny, I thought my wedding ring would act as a deterrent but it’s more like a magnet. Perhaps it makes me a challenge. I love women but you do mystify me still. Something tells me you like it that way.

Susi:  Hmm… Your role as a father is an important one. Are you close to your children today?

Paul:   I am close to my daughter, probably because she had more of my time. My relationship with my son is one that needs constant work and adjustments on both our parts. You will read more about that in the next book.

Susi:  I am looking forward to that book.  Please tell Michelle to hurry up.

I bet Marissa has you eating out of the palm of her hand.

Paul:   *smiles* Of course.

Susi:  The role of a stepmother isn’t easy.  Is Suzie prepared for this challenge? How is she handling it?

Paul:  The role was sort of thrust upon her wasn’t it? I suppose I didn’t actually give it a second thought, my focus was elsewhere at the time and perhaps I just expected her to step in to the role without question but knowing my Suzie the way I do, she’ll excel at it. She’s an incredibly giving woman and I am sure she will handle my children and me without even breaking a nail.

Susi:  How are your siblings Matt and Tessa?

Paul:  They are very well. I’ll let them know you were asking.

Susi:  You did get yourself into lots of mischief with Matt.

Paul:  Good times.

Susi:  Will we get more of their story in the next book?

Paul:  You will find out more about them, I am unsure if that will happen in the next book.

Susi:  Is there a special lady in Matt’s life?

Paul:  Matt will find his lady in a most unexpected place.

Susi:  Special man for Tessa?

Paul:  Yes, Tessa also finds the love of her life.

Susi:  My interview wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t ask you about Uncle John.  I remember meeting him at our last interview. I recall him being quite the handsome Spaniard.  How is he?  I hope Michelle plans on giving us more of his story in the next book as well.  He has played a significant role in your life.  Is it safe to say you look up to him?

Paul:  John is well. He’s being kept busy with the shoe factory but he still finds time to… shall we say let his hair down so to speak. He’s not showing any signs of running out of steam yet. He may be my uncle but he has played such a significant role in my life that I would say he’s more like a father to me. He and I are certainly kindred spirits.

Susi:  You haven’t been married too long to Suzie.  How is married life?

Paul:   I should have been married to her longer but married life is great. She is everything I look for in a woman and she certainly keeps me on my toes.

Susi:  One word to describe Gavin:

Paul:  Misunderstood

Susi:  One word to describe Marissa:

Paul:  Spoiled


Susi:  Valentine’s Day is coming up.  Do you have any special plans with Suzie? ( I won’t tell)

Paul:  I have been told not to plan anything. She tells me she has something in mind for me, should be interesting but I have a gift for her, it’s something every Jensen over the age of twenty-one has and yes, there are diamonds.


Susi:  Finally, will Paul Jensen ever board a plane and come to Miami so I can interview him here?

Paul:  Stranger things have happened.He he.

Susi:  Just drink some wine and close your eyes.  The flight will be over before you know it.


Rapid Fire for this Older Paul


Next car: I love my cars and although I could afford one for each day of the month, I tend to hang on to the ones I have. Having said that, I have recently purchased a Jaguar XF

Next watch: I love my Rolex and won’t be changing it any time soon.

Tiffany or Cartier? Tiffany for her. Cartier for me.

Favorite drink: Besides a good old cuppa? Brandy.

Your next vacation? I’m too busy to take a break but I think somewhere hot would be nice. Perhaps Tahiti, just because I like the name.

Still sporting the black boxers? Yes, when I am not going commando.

One word to describe Paul: You say, one word? That’s tough. If you had asked me in my younger days I would have laughed and told you there is no one word that can describe me. I’m too many great things to be just one word. But although I believe I’m still all those things, the value I place on them has changed. So I’ll give you one word.. see how much I’ve grown? That one word is the thing I’ve always been driven to be, in business, in love, in life. And I’m finally there. Accomplished.


Susi:  Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. It was great to interview you again.    I am sure fans of Prodigal Son and Father & Son will be thrilled to learn more about you.

Paul:  Thank you Susi. I enjoy talking to you.


So there you have it.  Go ahead and one click this wonderful series by Michelle Day.  Meet Paul and fall in love with this bad boy.  🙂

Enjoy an excerpt from Father & Son by Michelle Day

father and son cover michelle day


What has happened to Paul Jensen?

He’s growing up fast, handling the challenges of his situation with the skill of a man twice his age.

He will never fit in, why should he? He’s special. Now it’s time to show the world.

With his unstoppable ambition he is taking steps to secure his financial future for himself and those around him but he struggles to do the same with the emotional side of his life.

There’s only one woman he really wants. He just has to be man enough to step up and prove to her how much he’s changed.


Leaning forward, Suzanne slid an embossed card across the table towards them “An invite to my twenty first.” She told them before scrambling on to the seat and hugging a very happy and completely inebriated Matt. “Happy Birthday Matty.” She kissed his cheek and ruffled his hair before turning to Paul. Grasping his hands, she pressed her lips to each of his cheeks in turn. “Happy Birthday Paul.”

“Thank you Suzie.” He murmured, his thumbs stroking the backs of her hands, he desperately wanted to cup her face in his hands and plant his mouth firmly over hers.

“I’m glad we can be friends.” She spoke, turning his blood to ice. Pulling his hands from hers, he reached for a glass and downed a shot, never taking his eyes from her.

“Yeah, right.”

Knowing she’d upset him but also knowing that the words had needed to be spoken, she backed away and went to join Tessa as she waited in the lobby. Faye grasped her chance now with both hands, having wished Matt a happy birthday and receiving a sleepy smile and a rather unexpected grope of her backside, she moved to Paul.

Sitting boldly on his lap, she grabbed a shot glass and emptied the liquid into her mouth before grasping his face and planting her mouth over his. His lips parted willingly under hers, their tongues dancing as they shared the shot and it was his turn to groan as he traced his hands up her sides.

The clearing of a throat brought them back to reality and as they parted Paul mused, not for the first time, that he could have an awful lot of fun with Faye. “Your taxi is here.” Jez told her and Paul saw that he had used his body to shield that little charade from his sister and former lover. Shooting a grateful glance at the bar manager, he moved to get up as Faye vacated her seat on his lap but soon sat back down when Jez shook his head and escorted the flushed girl to the door.

Returning to the table and now joined by the rest of the staff, the Jensen boys were again wished a very Happy Birthday as the staff helped to deplete the shots in front of them before heading to their homes.

“Come on boys, time you got some sleep.” Jez beckoned for them to follow him.

“You’re letting us stay here?” Paul questioned as he helped Matt cannon ball off the walls on the way up the stairs.

“Yep, I figured he’s far too far gone to go home.” He gestured to Matt.

Paul nodded in agreement, then stopped moving altogether, “Wait a sec, if I stay here it means I’m not even going to get laid on my birthday and I had serious fuck me vibes coming from Faye.”

“You had serious fuck me vibes coming from just about every girl in the club dude but you are working tomorrow in case you’ve forgotten so I’m protecting my investment.” Jez told him.

“In case I forget to tell you later, you’re an asshole.” Paul griped.

What has happened to Paul Jensen?
Paul is growing up fast. Taking steps to secure his financial future for himself and those around him, he struggles to do the same with the emotional side of his life. There’s only one woman he really wants. He just has to be man enough to step up and prove to her how much he’s changed.

My Review

Michelle Day has done it again.  Father & Son is the brilliant continuation of the life of Paul Jensen, the incorrigible young man from Prodigal Son, her first book in this series. Get ready to follow Paul from the moment he gets his biggest news throughout his adulthood.  The story continues right where Prodigal Son leaves off so you won’t miss a beat.

The Jensen/Paloma family members are back.  Matt, his twin brother makes several appearances in this book that will leave you stunned.  (You’ve been warned) Put it this way, Matt and Paul get into mischievous situations.  His older sister Tessa learns more about her younger brother than she may care to.   Michael, his father crosses paths with Paul as well. (No spoilers)  Uncle John is back. (I like him)  This sexy Spaniard is always there to support and back Paul up when needed. Finally, Monica, his mother, shows her elegance and grace while always supporting her son.

Carmen, the infamous teacher continues to be a part of Paul’s life.  I want to dislike her,  but I can’t say I do.  Suzie, the one and only, holds a special place in Paul’s heart.  Her appearances throughout his life continue to prove the chemistry between them is still volatile.  Paul and Suzie have a special connection.  However, getting Suzie proves to be quite a difficult task for Paul.

father and son for pic quote 2 with quotes

Paul has grown up and is ambitious in all aspects of his life.  This is one the traits I loved the most about him.  Even at such a young age, Paul has set high standards and goals for his future.  His business savvy skills earn him the respect of others.  Along the way, Paul grows into an even more handsome gentleman, one that women can’t seem to resist.

Don’t worry, Paul doesn’t disappoint any of the women he meets along the way and most certainly won’t disappoint you.  If you loved him in the first book, watch out, he gets better with age.

There are unexpected moments in this book and all of them complete this story.  Paul most definitely proves to be more than expected and really has a heart of gold.  His generosity is another quality I admire.  Again, Paul is quite the character.

This series has a special place in my reader/blogger heart.  My first review as a newbie blogger was of Prodigal Son.  I’ve been following Paul, his character ever since.  “You see Paul, you were my first.”  🙂

Congrats to Michelle on another fantastic book.  I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. I look forward to reading book 3.


I gave this book 5 stars!

Sexy Snippet – Father & Son by Michelle Day

Last year I read and reviewed Prodigal Son Book One of the The Jensen Family Series by Michelle Day.  I got to ogle/interview the cheeky Paul himself too. (Click on links to review and interview via Bookish Temptations Book Blog)

Later on last year, Michelle Day released her stunning cover for Father & Son.

Here is a sexy snippet from the upcoming Father & Son.  I can’t wait to get my hands on this book.

Thank you Michelle for this teaser!

And as soon as I know the release date for this book, I’ll be sure to let you know.



Paul paused and downed the remaining beer in his bottle. His height allowed him to peer over the heads of the
people surrounding him and wave the empty bottle at one of the club’s floor staff who immediately ducked away to get him another and replace
his empty bottle. With his drink taken care of, he turned his attention back to the woman in front of him, yet another of his sisters’ friends,
Faye who was flirting outrageously with him, her hands on his hips as they danced. Sliding his free hand around her waist, he pulled her
closer, his knee slipping easily between her legs while her hands glided up his stomach to rest on his chest.
He gripped Faye closer, enjoying the feel of her body against his, knowing that at any second,
Tessa could easily, with just a look, stop her friend from grinding on her brother but not caring at this particular moment in time. Faye
moved easily with him and fit him perfectly and he took a moment to ponder what it would be like to get naked and slide into that hot
little body.  Hands on his back pushed him closer to Faye and he held her tighter, almost positive he heard her moan at the contact but he
couldn’t be certain, the music was far too loud to allow for conversation, the only communication being gestures and body language.
The hands traversed his back to caress his neck before pushing into his damp hair.
Accustomed as he was to being groped while at the club, he took little notice and just enjoyed the feel of a hot body pressed to
his front while another caressed his back. Faye’s hand slipped into his shirt and pressed against his heated skin and from the look on her
face, he was now absolutely certain that she had moaned moments before.
As he lowered his head to take a taste of her skin, he felt her stiffen in his grip and thought for a split second that he’d read the signs
wrong, pulling back to look at her, her saw the reason for her discomfort standing beside her, smiling at him, radiant in her red
dress and fuck me heels.  Unaware of the girl code that had passed between his sisters friends when news of his hook up with Suzanne had circulated amongst them that he was generally considered off limits to anyone but her, he was puzzled by Faye’s reaction to Suzanne’s presence but relaxed as Fay stepped back from him and hugged Suzanne before blowing him a kiss and dancing away.
Taking a leisurely look at her from head to toe, he offered her a sip of his now replenished drink and watched hungrily as her lips wrapped around the bottle and her throat moved upon swallowing. He took the bottle when she handed it back then wrapped one arm around her, smiling as her hands wound around his neck
and they began to move, oblivious to everything but each other.
A heavy beat sounded throughout the club as they pulled each other closer. Paul’s head bowed, his lips mere millimeters from her neck as he watched her
pulse beat, smelled her unique scent and ground his hips into hers. He’d never wanted her more than he did right at this moment and knowing he
couldn’t have her only served to make him want her even more. He danced her backwards towards the edge of the dance floor to give them both a
little space from the bodies pressing into them and drew back to look into her eyes, seeing his own desire reflected there, bowing his head
to kiss her parted lips, he suddenly stopped, he had no idea where this sudden bout of will power came from but he managed to avoid her lips
and press his own to her cheek instead as her hands clasped his neck tighter. Dancing with him felt so right, they way they moved and fit
together, his scent mingling with hers, so familiar and erotic at the same time. His muscled thigh between her legs, his hand spanning the
small of her back, the feel of him beneath her fingers, his breath on her neck as she tilted her head, unconsciously inviting the pressure of
his lips. She moved with him as he danced them backwards towards the edge of the dance floor, the air here was marginally cooler allowing
her to breathe and realize she really shouldn’t be dancing with him like this. She made the mistake of looking into his deep brown eyes as
he pulled back and knew she was lost, the look on his face told her just how much he wanted her and the realization made her gasp as he
lowered his head. When he paused, she thought he was just teasing but when his lips touched her cheek, she knew he’d somehow managed to rein
himself in and was keeping this marginally within the friend zone.
