Meet Jake Olsen from Robyn Thomas’ Famously Engaged and Giveaway!


We have a special guest in the virtual offices this morning!  Rocker hottie Jake Olsen from Robyn Thomas’ Famously Engaged dropped in for a visit, so please give him a warm welcome.

[Manga Maniac Café] Describe yourself in five words or less.

[Jake Olsen] Only five? I’m accustomed to being the ‘mouth’ of Five Awesome Emperors and talking us up in interview situations, so limiting my answer will be a challenge. I’d have to say: caged, ambitious, loyal, itinerant and overconfident.

[Manga Maniac Café] Can you share a typical day in the life of Jake Olsen?

[Jake Olsen] There is no pattern to my days. They start early, finish late and usually involve some combination of the following: long distance travel, public appearances, radio interviews, video and photo shoots, working out, recording, performing and song writing. If all five Emperors are in the same city, and our schedule can be twisted to accommodate it, I get the band together for a quick jam session.

[Manga Maniac Café] What three words come to mind when you think of Beth?

[Jake Olsen] Beth is essential, admirable, strong and grounded. (Did I mention that I can’t count?)

[Manga Maniac Café] What do you find most exasperating about her?

[Jake Olsen] Beth’s loyalty to her ex-husband drives me CRAZY. Their divorce failed to break the bond between them and his upcoming wedding shows no sign of succeeding either. I can’t understand why she’d settle for his company when she has access to me 24/7.

[Manga Maniac Café] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?

[Jake Olsen] I wouldn’t change a thing. I carried around some hefty regrets before I met Beth, but every bad decision and foolish mistake I ever made combined to lead me to her doorstep. Music is important to me, but I could always write songs for other people, tour with a different band or pursue a solo career. Beth is my weakness, my strength and my reason for living. I can’t imagine a life better than the one I share with Beth, so I have no desire to change anything.

[Manga Maniac Café] Thank you!

About the book:

A chef and a rock star. They couldn’t be from more different worlds…

Rock star royalty’s favorite son, Jake Olsen, couldn’t help but interfere after listening to his future brother-in-law talk non-stop about his ex-wife, Beth Carlisle. Jake decides that the only way to get the groom’s mind off his ex-wife is to give her a fake fiancé.

Before Jake can convince Beth of his plan, he’s forced to move in with her to avoid the paparazzi. Their instant attraction makes for a sizzling "first date", but soon Jake’s fame gets in the way and Beth wants out. Too bad Jake’s figured out just why her ex is so obsessed with her, and he’s afraid he’s not going to be able to give her up either.

Now it’s up to Jake to convince this chef together they make the perfect recipe.

Robyn is a cheesecake connoisseur, caffeine addict, and mother of two boys. Happily married, she lives in Melbourne, Australia. Writing romance helps her balance the effects of living in an all-male household. Robyn loves romantic comedies, art glass, cooking and browsing in quirky gift shops.
