look, Yeah, I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of Hudson linde's new book hard sell, which by the way, is hitting store shelves on May 25th, it's the story of Danny and at the opening of the story, he like confidently strides into the offices of tech company looking to buy it out. But instead he finds himself face to face with Tobin, the younger brother of his best friend. And it seems that they had shared an amazing night together several years ago, but haven't really seen each other since then. And despite being on opposite ends of this business deal, they start things up once again, living on opposite sides of the company. They're really struggling to make the long distance relationship thing work. And when they meet up for a weekend of business and pleasure at Calgary stampede, things fall apart in a really big way. Oh my God, it is such a mess. So the two of them, they have to navigate the intense pressures of their work lives and the relationship that they're keeping secret from friends and family. And we all know, keeping those kinds of secrets that never ends up going well. No, it really never works out either. And the two of them even have to deal with the health scare brought on by an extreme case of job burnout. The road to their happily ever after is a rocky one. But for Danny and Tobin, it is hard fought and it's definitely deserved. Now, in addition to getting a chance to read an early copy of this book, we also had the pleasure of sitting down with author Hudson Land to talk about how her own career in High Finance inspired the characters in this particular book. Yes, I had such a wonderful time talking with Lynn. You'll hear some of my thoughts about this book as we actually go through the interview as well. I really enjoyed it. This book actually kicks off the jade Harbor Capital series. So not only do we find out about this book and the series, we also discuss a couple of other incredible projects that she works on. Lynn. Welcome to the podcast. It is so wonderful to have you here. Thank you so much. I'm really excited to be on the show. I'm so excited to dig into hard sell with you. These characters are so wonderful. The book is just out this week. Tell everybody what hard sells about. Sure. Well, Hartsell is a contemporary mm romance about Danny and Danny is a private equity investor. He's at the top of his game. He is really, really successful, but he's looking for something a little bit more than just work 24 7 and that's when his best friend's little brother, Tobin, walks back into his life and Danny and Tobin had a one night stand seven years ago and then haven't really had any contact since then. But now Tobin is all grown up and he's really smoking hot and impossible to ignore and they are on opposite sides of this business deal. And so then they've got sparks flying in the boardroom and then in the bedroom obviously. And then, so they've got to figure out how to navigate their careers and their families to find their happily ever after, which I'm sure they do because it's a romance. So there's no spoiler. They definitely do. I can guarantee that what inspired the characters of Danny and Tobin for you. Well, I used to work in finance, so I was in that world that Danny lived in, where we're hopping on planes all the time. We're meeting up with folks in random cities all the time. And it sounds like fun because I tell my friends like, oh, look at this fancy hotel, I got to stay in for work, but it gets really, really grueling to be in a different city every week. And the glamour wears off very, very quickly when I get stuck in a random city overnight that I wasn't expecting to, and I've got a scramble for hotel room, I don't have a change of clothes, I don't have a toothbrush and it gets pretty grilling. So that's kind of where Danny is at the beginning of the book, where it's his friends think that he's got this really glamorous lifestyle, but it's very lonely actually to be on the road, usually by himself. So he's got all the money and all the success on the outside looks great, but none of it is really making him happy. So then that's kind of where I started with the story and this idea of like he's alone, but he's looking for family, he's looking for stability, he's looking for the other things in life besides that success that a lot of business people look for. So that's where I started.
