MAX-imum Exposure Blog Tour

Welcome to the MAX-imum Exposure Tour for the 13 to Life Series by Shannon Delany

The MAX-imum Exposure Tour kicks-off with a fun interview of the Rusakova Brothers.  For those of you who have read 13 to Life, you will know that Pietr and Max are two very hot shapeshifters.  Today, I had a chance to ask them a few questions.  And you will definitely want to check back tomorrow for a review of Secrets & Shadows and a chance to win some swag. 

Aly: Max, if you found the right girl, what is one essential thing (yeah, other than you turn into a wolf) that you would want her to know or understand about you?

Max: That I hate when people change the radio station while I drive?

Aly: Funny. The truth, Max. One thing the right girl should know.

Max: That if she wants to be the center of my world I need to be the center of hers.

Aly: Max, this one's also for you. Learning the truth about Alexi seems to have been more significant to you than to the twins in the sense of betrayal more heightened. Why do you think this is true?

Max: I always thought Sasha--Alexi was my brother. I thought I could trust him. He was the alpha when our parents... He was the one I went out with whenever Pietr disappeared with his thoughts and his books. I always thought he was the most like me--but he is a traitor. Nothing about him was real.

Aly: Pietr, what is one thing about Jessica that makes her more unique to you than any other girl you've known and why?

Pietr: There is more than one thing. Jess has a level of compassion that I have never seen before. she tries so hard to do the right thing even if it hurts her--I know I can trust her much better than I've trusted any other girl I've dated before.

Aly: Pietr, since you and Cat are twins, how do you see your connection with her being different than with say Max or with other members of your family?

Pietr: It is more than just being twins. Cat and I can talk about anything. She is clever and caring and we just connect better. Alexi--he has an agenda. Max--a short attention span. I would need to have breasts for Max to want to sit still long enough to have a real conversation with me.

Aly: Both of you, if someone would turn on your iPod or MP3 player, what songs would be on it at the moment? And are you someone that sets it on random or do you prefer to play a song list over and over again?

Max: Random. Mine has songs by Linkin Park, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Blink 182, Stone Sour and MCR--My Chemical Romance.

Aly: Pietr? What about yours?

Pietr: It depends on my mood. Sometimes I want to hear a song again and again until it is just a hum in my brain.

Aly: And what groups are on your MP3 player, Pietr?

Pietr: Snow Patrol, The Spill Canvas, Duran Duran, Queen, The Killers, Nickelback, All-American Rejects and Thriving Ivory.

Aly: Thank you both for stopping by.
