Four Words with AJ Pine’s Characters

4-word interviewwhitebackground

Hello, everyone. Emma Martin here. Are you ready for another four-word interview? I’m having such a great time with these characters…well, and the authors, too.

If you’re new to the blog, here’s how it works. I get to ask four questions, but they can only be four words long, and the kicker is…they answers have to be four words or less as well.

Why four? Well…why not? That’s just how I roll.

So, you ready for the next one? We decided to mix it up a little and interview BOTH CHARACTERS. Pretty fun!

Meet Griffin Reed & Maggie Kendall from AJ Pine’s WHAT IF.  And guess what? The book RELEASES TODAY! So, be sure to read through to find the buy links so you can grab your copy!

So let’s get started…

Emma Martin: Most embarrassing moment…

Griffin Reed: Walking into a door.

Maggie Kendall: Answering phone, “Royal Grinds!” 

EM: WHAT IF first kiss.

GR: Scared to need her.

MK: So this is fireworks

EM: Favorite old school game…

GR: UNO, but Maggie’s version.

MK: UNO, with my rules.

EM: Strangest thing done recently.

GR: Picked up a hitchhiker.

MK: Have to pick one?


Okay, I’m so digging these characters! Oh, and Griffin, I’ve sooo walked into a door before. Totally SUCKS!!


A little about WHAT IF:


Sometimes it takes letting go of the past to find out who you want to be.

During his semester abroad, Griffin Reed almost gave his heart to a girl who loved someone else. Lesson learned. Now he’s home, where following in his father’s footsteps may not be what he wants, but it’s what his parents expect. It might be taking the easy road, but he doesn’t see a way out.

Something that could have killed Maggie Kendall took away the person she used to be instead. Her condition makes her dependent on sticky notes, photos, and medication just to get through each day. The last thing she needs is a distraction—or someone new to disappoint.

What they refuse to see is they are perfect for each other. Maggie makes Griffin want to be a better man, and he makes her believe a future is possible. But these two have to find a way to share the secrets ripping them apart, if they’re ever going to have a chance at happiness.

Meet AJ:

authorAJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, her books have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes) and, of course, a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires, from Eric Northman to the Salvatore brothers. And in the midst of all of this, you’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago burbs.

AJ’s debut NA novel, IF ONLY, is out now with Entangled’s Embrace line, with a companion novel, WHAT IF, releasing December 8, 2014. Look for her two new NA novels releasing with Penguin/Intermix, ONE NIGHT and ONE LIFE, in 2015.


Thanks, AJ, for letting Griffin & Maggie come out and play!
