Cane Robicheaux is a more than just a tatted-up, motorcycle-riding, leather-wearing, sinfully delicious pretty face. He’s a business owner, a musician, a bartender, an overprotective big brother, and quite honestly, a bit of a nerd.
Balancing budgets, watching Discovery channel, working a new Sudoku…these are some of Cane’s favorite things—just don’t tell anyone. He prefers people to take his bad boy, playboy image at face value. It’s easier not to get close that way, too attached, which Cane learned early on meant getting hurt. Or hurting someone else. Or, at least that’s what he believed until a certain adorable redhead literally stumbled into his life. He’s been reeling ever since.
When not preoccupied with his favorite hellcat, Cane strives to purge her from his thoughts with another favorite past time: reading. Here’s a few of his absolute favorites—on the down low, of course.
Cane’s Five Favorite Reads…Just Don’t Tell Anyone
• Discipline by Paco Ahlgren Suspense, murder, quantum physics, drug use, chess, politics…all the good stuff in one amazing debut. He happened upon it while searching for books on chess theory and it quickly shot to the top of his list. One hell of a ride.
• The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien A classic that should make everyone’s list, at least if you’re a true inner geek like him. He grew up reading this fantasy and inevitably yanks out his dog-eared copy once a year.
• Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner Widely popular book that takes economic theory, applies it to social principles, and draws fascinating conclusions. Believe them or not, it’s a cool as hell approach. Cane is a numbers dude, and he loves taking economics and statistical models and applying those in unexpected ways.
• Coming Back Stronger by Drew Brees What true New Orleans Saints fan wouldn’t have this on their list? A book about overcoming personal adversity and the true strength of his beloved city and team, this book hits close to home for Cane. Almost too close at times.
• The Stranger by Albert Camus Another classic that belongs on everyone’s list. Unique writing that pulls you in. Emotionless, clinical…almost like Dexter, only not a psychopathic killer. It blows him away every time he reads it.
Honorable Mentions: The Medici Effect by Frans Johansson, a fascinating study of innovation, and A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams, technically a play, but a brilliant one, also set in Cane’s hometown of New Orleans.
