ALTERED Hot Guys: Nick


Third on the ALTERED Hot Guys List is Nick.


There's no sense sugar coating it. Nick is an asshole. He's the kind of person who would con you out of your last meal and have no remorse about it. He's morally bankrupt, and broken, and doesn't waste time with idle chat. But he will tell you how it is, if it needs to be said. He has no issue with telling the truth, even if it's the wrong thing to say at the time. 

Nick spent the greater part of his life fending for himself, so he doesn't trust anyone, and hates the thought of leaving his fate in someone else's hands. At the same time, if he thinks it'll better serve him to stick with a group, he will. He's stubborn, and uncooperative, but his decisions are never emotionally based. He does what he knows is best for survival, and maybe he doesn't want to cross Bridge B in order to get from A to C, but he'll do it, even if it pisses him off the whole way.

He also cusses like a trucker. Add that to his habit of saying whatever he wants, and you'll know why I say he's one of my favorite characters to write. There are few lines Nick won't cross, and for a writer, that's liberating. 

---------------------------------



1. If you could be any animal, what would you be?

That's your lead-in question?

INTERVIEWER: [laughs] Yes, this is just a for-fun interview. Nothing too serious here.

[silence]

INTERVIEWER: So, which animal would you be?

I'm not answering that. Next question.

2.  Let's say you're walking down the street. You're wearing a thick coat. You have a sandwich in your hand and a $20 bill in your pocket and a frail man stops you, begging for some change. Do you give him anything?

Depends what kind of frail we're talking about. Frail like he's dying? I'd point him in the direction of the nearest hospital. Frail like he's a worthless drunk? I'd tell him to [sensored] off. 

3. You've won the lottery. What's the first thing you buy?

A way out of this interview. 

4. What's the one thing you couldn't live without?

Water.

INTERVIEWER: Not physically. Like, emotionally, mentally, spiritually?

Then you should have been more specific.

  2. Why did I start grinning at the word asshole? Seriously. WHY?! *bangs head on wall* Damnit, Nick. I hate you already. Because for some messed up reason, I already love you. And I know I will love you ten times more when I officially meet you.

    I can see why he's a favourite to write, he's definitely fascinated me the most so far! I want to learn MORE about him.

  8. I'm sorry I'm so awful, but I just had to go on your website/blog and see if there was any news about anymore of your books coming out.

    I'm halfway through Altered and I LOVE IT <3

    GAHH <3 NICK IS SUCH A HOTTIE~~~!!! Even though he's so.....bad boy and I'd probably want to smack him every other second I can't help but have a soft spot for guys like him. I mean he's an a-hole, but he's not like...TO ME he's not rude about it...like I don't know compared to the guys I know that treat me poor I don't think Nick would go OUT OF HIS WAY to make me feel awful all the time...

    JUST MY OP~ But so far I love it! and I can't wait to read more and the next oneeee~!!!! <3

  9. I just finished Altered yesterday and I was so disappointed to discover that Erased doesn't come out until 2014. Your little hint said that it was a "Nick-heavy" book and I literally squealed. Honestly, the sound that came out of my mouth was NOT human! Nick is by far my favorite character and I'm absolutely fascinated about his past and his current personality. I guess in that way I'm kind of like Anna; I think the guy's an ass and I probably would never be able to get along with him, but I find him complex and intriguing! And seriously, describe this hottie a bit more throughout the rest of the series; just reading about his curly/wavy hair made me wish I could be on the run with government science experiments.
