On this stop, Lea Bronsen interviews charmeur deluxe and rock ‘n roll bad boy Shawn Torien!


Lea: Hi Shawn! I’m so glad to have you here. We haven’t spoken since the release of your book, the erotic contemporary romance My Biggest Fan in August last year. Can you believe it’s been that long?

Shawn: No. It’s nice to see you, too, Lea. How you been?

Lea: Oh, busy 🙂 Let’s do this quick and easy – the readers have forty-something blogs to visit! So I have a few fan questions for you. Starting with scars, tattoos, and piercings. Do you have any, and if so, what do they mean to you?

Shawn: Yep, I have all of that. Scars from fights, mostly, when I was young and crazy. Piercings, too. When I founded the band, I wore a nose chain like Rachel Bolan, but it kept getting stuck in the girls’ hair and clothes, so it had to go. I still wear my jewels like a queen – silver rings on my nose, ears, fingers, navel… I swear, one day someone’s going to challenge me to have one pierced into my dick, too. As for tattoos, I have a snake on the side of my throat, with its tongue licking along my artery. A little higher, tattooed in black below my ear lobe, are the words ‘Bloodless’, the name of my groove rock band.

Lea: How cool. Who has been your greatest influence (parent, friend, idol), and why?

Shawn: That’s very hard to say. Being in the music industry, it’d be natural to name a rock star. Someone from the 70s, like Hendrix. But to answer your question honestly, the person who most influenced me is the one my book is really about: my biggest fan, my mother. It’s her love that kept me afloat. She’s the reason I was never found OD’ying in the gutter like some in the business were.

Lea: How do you think your colleagues would describe you?

Shawn: My colleagues, you mean the band? That’s easy. Before I met Sam, they’d describe me as the wild one. I was constantly drunk or drugged-out, and it showed in our recordings. It’s a miracle that we were able to put out any albums at all. Now, I still enjoy a beer or two, but thanks to Sam, I don’t have that crazy urge to self-destroy anymore. She’s made me appreciate new facets of life.

Lea: What is your greatest talent?

Shawn: Ha ha, you’d think playing the bass? Nope, my greatest talent is making a fool of myself. I love being the clown. Goofing around on stage, back stage… I keep pissing off the road manager – well, the whole record company – ’cause I don’t ever take myself or anyone else seriously.

Lea: What are you the most hopeless at?

Shawn: *sighs* Being romantic. I suck at candles and roses. Thank fuck Sam doesn’t care much for that, either. But holding hands, cuddling in bed, kissing sweetly, these are things she loves and I’ll always do for her. Always, from the bottom of my heart.

Lea: How deeply does your job define you as a person?

Shawn: Being a so-called rock star defines me and my everyday life completely. I can’t take a break or suddenly choose to be someone else. Wherever I go, there’ll be fans waiting for autographs, journalists asking for a few words… It’s a 24-four-hour thing. I am me, and my job is me, too.

Lea: What is your most cherished possession?

Shawn: C’mon, Lea, what kind of a question is that? My cock, without a doubt. Ha ha. You thought I’d say Sam? Well, yeah, of course she’s my most cherished possession, but without a cock I’m no good to her either. *grins*

Lea: You silly you! *laughs* Another stupid question – how do you feel, generally, about the opposite sex?

Shawn: I love girls. Like Gene Simmons, I’d have any girl, small and large, as long as she was willing. Now I gotta keep those thoughts to myself. Sam would freak out if she knew I’m still able to admire a nice ass or a pair of titties.

Lea: What were you doing before you met Samantha? How was your life different?

Shawn: Everything was different. My mindset, more than anything. The way I saw things, the way I wanted my life to be, and the way I chose to treat people around me. She made me change. Now I can’t imagine being without her. She’s not only sweet but quite the sexy minx, which is nice when I’m in need of—

Lea: —Okay, thank you so much for joining us on this blog hop, and thanks for your, ahem, honesty! 🙂

Blurb for Shawn’s book “My Biggest Fan”:

Shawn Torien is a handsome, arrogant bassist with the groove rock band Bloodless. At thirty four, he’s seen everything, been everywhere, and all is handed to him on a silver plate—groupies included. His rock star attitude is questioned when the record company’s young webmistress Samantha joins the band to cover their life on the road.

Since she has crushed on Shawn for years, he takes great pleasure in teasing her and pushing her away… until he learns about the woman beneath the surface.

  1. Thank you for the hop. Not a big fan of makeup on a guy but it also depend on what type of makeup it is. I have no problem with jewelry as long as it’s not outrageous.

  3. Jewelry, yes…makeup depends on the guy. Some guys look totally hot…some guys just look like they’re trying too hard and it’s kinda sad…..

  4. To Amy Bowens, thanks for your kind words! My erotica High Risk Fever is ready for submission to pub houses. Meanwhile, I’m writing an erotic romance novella about an author falling in love with her cover model… he he 😉 When that is done, I’ll pick up the thriller Carnivora again, my biggest and most complicated project to date.


  5. Not all guys can pull off make-up & those that do wear it I expect to be some sort of entertainer, like a musician. And the only jewelry i’d like to see on any man of mine, is a wedding ring. ❤ Now that would be hot because it's showing the world that he's taken & it's a symbol of his love for me. =)

    Thank you for this giveaway!!

    I hope you have a great week! =)

  6. No to a lot of jewelry and makeup on a man. I don’t mind a little eyeliner a la Jack Sparrow but only if it’s part of a “performance” persona not in every day life.

  7. Make up looks good on guys if not used to such an extent that they look as pale as a ghost. But about jewelry, I am not sure if I like it in all guys, maybe in some.

  8. I like a little jewelry on a guy, but no makeup. Maybe I feel that way since I don’t use makeup.
