What can I say about A.J. Gonzalez? He's a bit of a wild boy who can't stay out of trouble. In all honesty, though, he'd be in trouble with Deputy "Jackass" Pittman anyway just because he inhaled differently. None of the starstuck fangirls of Colby Taylor's have ever gotten past A.J. They all run away after they see his crazy stunt on the Jet Ski. Haley is the first person (other than Reed) to actually get on the back of the bright yellow Jet Ski with him (and Reed still has the scar), and she's one of the first outsiders to actually give him a chance to be more than a crazy Mexican thug.
A.J. has so many layers to him it's unreal. He can be wild and crazy or the nicest, sincerest, friendliest person in the world. If you're real with him and treat him right, he'll do the same with you. It's just a matter of getting past the front he puts on to scare people away. While Linzi is off sucking face with Alston, Haley and A.J. become almost inseparable best friends. Don't get me wrong, Haley and Linzi still remain friends, but A.J. now holds the BFF portion of Haley's heart!
He's also Nikki's favorite character in CHASING FOREVER DOWN! Maybe he'll become your book boyfriend for 2014! So, go get your copy now!!!
After seventeen-year-old Haley Sullivan meets a mysterious stranger who plays by his own rules, she's more than determined to learn every trick of the trade from the master himself. But her dream-chasing mentor disappears after that night, and according to the local newspapers, he's been dead for years. Knowing he's very much alive, Haley enlists best friend Linzi to join her on a scavenger-hunt-style road trip that ultimately lands them in the surf town of Crescent Cove, California. Mystery guy is no mystery here, though – he's Colby Taylor, the west coast's biggest professional surfer.
If Haley wants to talk to the wave rider again, she'll have to get past his four intimidating "bodyguards" who are highly skilled in the business of sending starstruck fangirls back to where they belong. Haley is up for the challenge if it means chasing her dreams and escaping the perfectly corporate future that's been planned for her. But dealing with these bodyguards isn't exactly what Haley imagined it'd be. Sure, being thrown off a jet ski sucks, but falling in love with one of them might just be worse.
