A Look At Jesse Goldmen & Rafael Argon from 'Legally Bound' ~ @BooksByGray @evernightpub @TheOriginalGray #gay #bdsm

..Today we have Jesse Goldmen and Rafael Argon visiting from the story Legally Bound. Welcome!

..Jesse Goldmen and Rafael Argon, what would you like to tell readers about yourselves?
......Jesse walks in with a swagger and takes a seat. "We had a fight over who was going to do this, and I won." The shit eating grin on his face is pretty evident as he goes on. “I'm from the greatest city on the planet, Chicago, were I work as a public defender. I come into the story to find my partner, and best friend, has slept with our client. Momentarily I’m in shock, but then I nearly have tears of joy. Monday's are horrid, so it had potential to entertain me all day at Daniel's expense."
......Rafael walks in half a beat later and huffs. "The book is about me. I should be doing this." Ignoring Jesse he turns to answer the question. "I've lived in the city since I was about five, and I work as a paid dominant here. I got into some trouble with a cop and find out my one night stand from the night before is now my public defender."
......"Not me," Jesse added. "My partner."

..Are you happy with the way people perceive you?
......"I can't say I've ever really cared about the way people look at me. I kind of just do my own thing, you know?" Jesse pushes his fingers into his blond hair and half shrugs.
......Rafael rolls his eyes. "I guess so. Most people get the hard exterior. I don't want to let anyone in. When I do, I get burned."

..Is humor important? Why or why not? - OR - Is expressing love difficult for you? Why or Why not?
......"YES! I'd like to think I steal the book with my humor, and even though I'm a 'side,'" he makes air quotes with his fingers, “character, I think people are rooting for me."
......"You have no plot!" Raf scrubs a hand over his face. "Who let you do this anyway?"
......"I tied Daniel up and left him in the back." Jesse smooths a hand down his tie and tires to look innocent.
......Rafael sighs as he hears Daniel's muffled cries for help around what he's pretty sure is a ball gag. "Don't touch my toys again."
......Jesse whispers, "It's hard for Raf to express love."

..Does your author ever try to take over the story? And how do you deal with it?
......"Yes, I think so, since the story isn't quite about me." Jesse mutters under his breath.
......"This is why I should be doing the interview, Jesse," Raf growled.
......"Go help your boyfriend."

..If you were taken out of the story and placed into your author’s world, what would be the first thing you’d do?
......"I'd learn magic at Hogwarts. I think I'd make a fantastic wizard. Silencio," he says while pointing an imaginary wand at Raf.
......Raf groaned. “I’d be in The God Father. Then I could put a hit on his ass first thing."

..If you could pull your author into your world, what do you think would happen to them?
......"Gray and I would have a good time." Eyes light up like a child.
......"J.R. would want to top you, you know that right?" Raf looks at Jesse with an amused grin.
......Jesse scowls and shifted in his seat.

..What was the best sexual experience you’ve had?
......"Pass." Jesse puts a nice neat 'x' over this question.
......"Just wait till you get to book two, folks." There’s a glint in Rafael's eyes. "Read the book. My and Daniel’s highlights are in there." He winks.

..Now for some author information!
......My author is J.R. Gray. When not staying up all night writing, J.R Gray can be found basking in the warm glow of the Miami sun, or at the gym where it's half assumed Gray is a permanent resident. A dominant, pilot, and sword fighting enthusiast, Gray finds it hard to be in the passenger seat of any car. Gray frequently interrupts real life, including normal sleep patterns, to jot down nonsense. The bane of Gray's existence are commas, and even though it's been fully acknowledged they are necessary, they continue to baffle and bewilder.
......If Gray wasn't writing…well, that's not possible. The buildup of untold stories would haunt Gray into an early grave or possibly a mental institution where the tales would end up on the walls in crayon and finger paint.

..A look into the story

~ Blurb ~
......The last thing Daniel, a hard-working public defender, expected to see the morning after a one night stand was his hook-up staring back at him from the wrong side of the law. Assigned to work his case, Daniel vows to keep things professional with Rafael but has a hard time controlling his craving for dominance, the control, and the connection they shared. Rafael, a paid Dominant in the Chicago underworld, has been dealing with a cop problem for far too long. Used to sex with no emotion, he’s entranced with Daniel’s submission, his innocence, and…could there be something more? Can Daniel clear Rafael's name, keeping him out of jail and in his life, with the odds, a cop, and the mounting evidence against them?
......Be Warned: m/m sex, BDSM, branding, flogging, caning, whipping
~ Excerpt ~
......“Oh shit," Daniel said too loud, drawing the attention of the bailiff. He waved her off, muttering, “Nothing.”
......“What?” Jesse hissed.
......“I fucked one of our cases last night,” he admitted, knowing his friend would get it out of him one way or another. There was no point fighting his partner’s excellent extraction skills.
......“Which one?” he asked, looking over his shoulder, way too amused.
......Daniel tried to nod subtly to one of the prisoners.
......“You have to give me more than that.” The blond lawyer stood up and blatantly turned around to study the men sitting in the rows behind them.
......Stiffening in his seat, he tried to keep his back to the man he had seen every naked inch of, as well as had his tongue buried inside of, till the early hours of the morning.
......“Dark hair, about six foot, green eyes.” He tried to speak out of the corner of his mouth so no one could read his lips.
......“The one with the sleeve tattoo and the huge arms?” Jesse asked.
......“Yeah,” he answered in a low, sheepish voice.
......“I knew it was that one. You so have a type.” Jesse flipped back around to take his seat once more. He instantly went for the files, lifting up folders and setting the large stack right in front of him.
......“What are you doing?” Daniel kept looking over his shoulder to see if the guy showed any signs of recognition.
......“What’s his name?” His partner didn’t look up from the stack of files as he spoke.
......“Rafael,” he whispered, face flushed at just saying his name. “What are you doing?”
......“Figuring out what your lay did,” Jesse said, positively glowing by now.
......“I really hate you,” he responded, pulling at his tie and trying to loosen it.
