Dating Games: Heartsick by Caitlin Sinead

February 10th, 2015 Kristie Posted in Dating Games Comments Off on Dating Games: Heartsick by Caitlin Sinead

Dating #5

Welcome to the Dating Games Event! Each day we want to focus on a *New Adult* couple to see how well they know each other. Today we are featuring Quinn and Luke from Heartsick by Caitlin Sinead! Heartsick will be released on February 16, 2015 from Carina Press!

*Don’t forget to enter here for the Dating Games International giveaway!*

______________________________________________________________________

Dark Faerie Tales: Quinn we are going to start with you so Luke could you please leave the room.  I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible. But I also want you to remember that this is a game, and you want your questions to match Luke’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.

When getting to know someone it is very important to find out what some of their favorite things are so I want to know what you think is Luke’s favorite childhood memory is? Also can you tell us your favorite childhood memory as well so we can see if Luke knows what it is?

Quinn: Luke has two older sisters who he’d do anything for, including letting them bury him up to the neck in sand at Virginia Beach. Not just one vacation, but several vacations. I think they might have started that tradition when he was seven and stopped it…well…actually, I think they still do it. Luke can be a good sport when it comes to being enveloped in sand.

For me, well, I always loved doing various art projects with my uncle. One time we even made a little Christmas town completely out of q-tips and puffy paint. He’s not alive anymore, but…I’ll always have those memories.

DFT: Can you describe Luke in three words and also describe yourself in three words as well?

Quinn: Luke is charming, kind, and goofy.

I’m spontaneous, a bit quirky, and creative.

DFT: What was your first impression of Luke? What do you think was his first impression of you?

Quinn: Well, I thought he was just another townie. A very handsome one, for sure, but just a local guy looking to have some fun. I know he pegged me for a Poe student instantly, and he was, well, at least curious about me right away.

DFT: The next few questions are a little more intimate but fun to ask so try to be as honest as possible. Do you like naughty talk or does it embarrass you?

Quinn: I don’t like it. There are more fun things we can do with our mouths.

DFT: What is your favorite body part on Luke and what is his favorite body part of yours?

Quinn: His arms—they’re nice, police-trained arms. I love how they feel when he’s holding me.

DFT: What is your idea of the perfect romantic date?

Quinn: Anything outside. Both Luke and I love being barefoot in the grass and rolling around on picnic blankets.

Heartsick

 

DFT: Ok Luke it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Quinn.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

When getting to know someone it is very important to find out what some of their favorite things are so I want to know what you think is Quinn’s favorite childhood memory is? Also can you tell us your favorite childhood memory is?

Luke: Quinn’s favorite memory probably has to do with doing an art project with her uncle.

For me, my sisters and I pulled a few pranks in our day. Well, okay, being the youngest, a lot of them were on me. But one time, when our parents were watching a horror movie, we took one of Rachel’s old creepy-looking dolls, duck taped it to a broom stick, and swayed it in front of the window next to the TV. I’ll never forget the looks on their faces. 

DFT: Can you describe Quinn in three words and also describe yourself in three words as well?

Luke: I’m simple, blessed, and lucky. There’s no way I can capture all that is Quinn in three little words.

DFT: What was your first impression of Quinn? What do you think was her first impression of you?

Luke: There was something about her that demanded my attention. I had to talk to her. I had to try to understand who this girl was who drank wine when everyone else was chugging draft beer, who took eerie photographs, and who seemed to love Sally–one of my family’s best friends–as much as me and my sisters do. Thinking about the way she looked at me as we stood over that broken glass still gives me chills.

I’m sure she thought I was some dumb hick. She might not be wrong. Have I mentioned that I’m blessed and lucky?

DFT: The next few questions are a little more intimate but fun to ask so try to be as honest as possible. Do you think Quinn likes naughty talk or does it embarrass her?

Luke: Um, yeah, I think maybe it would embarrass her. Yeah, let’s go with that. *wipes face, turns red*

DFT: What is your favorite body part on Quinn and what is her favorite body part of yours?

Luke: Her eyes….

What? I’m a gentleman.

But I’m guessing she loves my butt. I hear it’s pretty nice.

DFT: What is your idea of the perfect romantic date?

Luke: Anything with Quinn. Being outside with Quinn is even better.

DFT: Quinn what did you think of Luke’s answers?

Quinn: “My eyes,” my ass. He’s a boob guy, he’s just too polite to say it.

DFT: So Luke what did you think of Quinn’s answers?

Luke: Okay, okay, I’ve taken a gander at her boobs now and again, I’ll admit it. And I loved her answers, even if we don’t win this, going home with her means I’m still winning.

Available February 16, 2015 from Carina Press

About this Book:

Quinn is looking forward to her senior year at Poe University. She has big plans to hang out with her best friend, flirt with a certain boy genius, party at her favorite dive bar and figure out what she’s going to do after graduation with her not-so-useful art major. But that’s before she meets Luke, a hot townie who’s moved back home to help take care of his dying sister. And it’s before a weird epidemic sweeps across campus, mysteriously turning people’s eyes purple.

Is it an odd side effect from a new party drug?

Is it a rogue virus developed in a campus lab?

Is it the mark of the devil?

Soon the town starts blaming the university and the student religious group becomes frighteningly aggressive in their on-campus accusations. Quinn and Luke are caught in the middle—until a tragic accident forces Luke to reveal the one part of himself he’s kept carefully hidden. That he’s so much more than the happy-go-lucky boy next door Quinn had believed him to be isn’t a surprise…but this truth might be too dangerous for her to handle.

Dating #5

Welcome to the Dating Games Event! Each day we want to focus on a *New Adult* couple to see how well they know each other. Today we are featuring Cade and Fallon from Just a Little Flirt by Renita Pizzitola! Just a Little Flirt is the second novel in the Crush series. It will be released on March 31, 2015 from Flirt/Random House!

*Enter for your chance to win a (giveaway #1) $10 Amazon or Nook Gift Card and (giveaway #2) a Nook or Kindle copy of Just a Little Crush. Don’t forget to enter here for the Dating Games International giveaway!*

______________________________________________________________________

Dark Faerie Tales: To start things off can we have Fallon leave the room for just a few minutes so we can ask Cade the questions first.  I do want to remind you that this is a game and we want your answers to match Fallon’s if possible, but we also want you to be as honest as possible!

First off let’s start with a very simple yet important question that everyone should know about their partner.  What is Fallon’s favorite color? Also what is your favorite color?

Cade: Red. Mine is also red. (Grins) We’re meant to be.

DFT: What three words do you think Fallon would use to describe you?

Cade: (laughs) Probably three words that are too x-rated for this interview.

DFT: You work with therapy pets and I’m not going to lie I think it is adorable that you take your dog to the hospital and visit sick children. Since you obviously love dogs I want to know if Fallon was a dog, what type would she be and why?

Cade: Well, she’s kind of little so something small. But she has a lot of personality and is fun and playful so maybe something like a… Wait, I kind of feel like this is a loaded question. Uh, let me change my answer. Fallon could never be compared to a dog. Yeah, let’s go with that.

DFT: These next few questions are going to be a little more personal but just answer them as honestly as possible :-) !!! What is your favorite sexual position?

Cade: (chuckles) Um, I’m a guy. So I’m going to have to say all of them.

DFT: Yes or no to foreplay?

Cade: Definite yes.

DFT: Hot summer days or cold winter nights?

Cade: Hot summer, for sure.

DFT: What is your idea of a romantic date?

Cade: Fallon isn’t much for romance. So a game of volleyball and a few beers at Spikes works for me.

DFT: Underwear – Yes or no?

Cade: For me, sure. For girls, completely optional.

DFT: Between the sheets or on top?

Cade: (laughs) Since I’m not a fan of actually making my bed, it’s probably a little of both.

DFT: The sexiest thing a girl can wear?

Cade: A smile.

Just a Little CrushJust a Little Flirt

DFT: Okay Fallon it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Cade.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

First off let’s start with a very simple yet important question that everyone should know about their partner.  What is Cade’s favorite color? Also what is your favorite color?

Fallon: Red. For us both. But I swear we aren’t, like, the couple who thinks alike or anything. We just happen to have that in common.

DFT: What three words would you use to describe Cade?

Fallon: Lickable, his abs anyway… you should ask him to see them. And his arms. Yum. Fu—Wait, can I even say that? Hmm, let’s go with sexy. And…perfect. (sighs) He really is. You should see him with the kids.

DFT: Cade is a pet therapy handler and I’m not going to lie I think it is adorable that he takes his dog to the hospital to visit sick children. Since Cade obviously works with dogs I wanted to know if you were a dog what type would you’d be and why?

Fallon: (Turns to Cade) Did you say I was a dog?

Cade: (Shakes head) See?

Fallon: If you did, I hope you said I was something super fierce like a Rottweiler.

Cade: (laughs) That’s a pretty big dog. You’re more like a mixture of several tiny dogs.

Fallon: So like a mutt?

Cade: Uh, next question.

DFT: These next few questions are going to be a little more personal but just answer them as honestly as possible :-) !!!

DFT: What is your favorite sexual position?

Fallon: (Shrugs) All of them.

DFT: Yes or no to foreplay?

Fallon: Yes please.

DFT: Hot summer days or cold winter nights?

Fallon: Summer.

DFT: What is your idea of a romantic date?

Fallon: Hmm, not big on romance. Maybe a few drinks and a night out. Or, I don’t know, maybe a night in…the bedroom.

DFT: Underwear – Yes or no?

Fallon: Depends on what I’m wearing. Definitely not a must, in my opinion.

DFT: Between the sheets or on top?

Fallon: (Grins) Um, wherever we land?

DFT: The sexiest thing a boy can wear?

Fallon: Cade’s body. Nothing else. True story.

DFT: Cade what did you think of Fallon’s answers, do you think she did an okay job?

Cade: Her answers are exactly what I’d expect from Fallon…and I love every one of them.

DFT: Fallon what about Cade’s answers, did you think he knows you very well?

Fallon: (smiles) Cade knows me better than anyone. His answers are perfect.

Just a Little Crush

Available October 21, 2014 from Flirt/Random House

About this Book:

Good girls stay away from Ryder Briggs . . . or, at least, they tryto. In Renita Pizzitola’s emotional novel of heartache and seduction, one college freshman just can’t get enough.
 
Brinley Dawson doesn’t drink, she studies—and despite the accusations of her alcoholic mother, she’s still a virgin. But if Brinley’s life is so put together, why is she freaking out to be going to college with the gorgeous, green-eyed jerk she kissed on a stupid dare in high school? Ryder Briggs can have any girl he wants . . . and the rumors say that he does. So why, after publicly embarrassing Brinley four years ago, is he suddenly acting like he’s interested?

Ryder never forgot Brinley. In fact, those perfect seven minutes permanently raised the bar for what a kiss could be. The truth is, Ryder doesn’t dare get too close to anyone. He knows how that worked out for his parents. But when his roommate takes a shot at Brinley, Ryder can’t contain his jealousy. Now he must do the hardest thing he’s ever done: forget about sex and convince Brinley his feelings are real.

Brinley isn’t sure whether she believes Ryder, but for the first time, her body isn’t playing by the rules. Then she discovers that she’s an unwilling part of a cruel game, humiliating her all over again—and Ryder might be to blame. Has Brinley’s little crush turned into a huge mistake . . . or has she found the one guy worth trusting with her heart?

Just a Little Flirt

About this Book:

Saying yes has always come easy for Fallon. Now, in Renita Pizzitola’s steamy, poignant new novel, winning her dream job means saying no to the guy she wants the most.

Between all the parties and random hook-ups, Fallon Carr is this close to flunking out of college. But her internship working with pediatric patients means the world to her—especially since, at the end of the summer, one lucky intern will be offered a paid position. Determined to leave her bad reputation behind, Fallon even takes a bet that she won’t sleep with anyone from work. But there’s one little catch. . . .

Not only is Cade Ryan the hottest guy Fallon has ever laid eyes on, he’s a therapy dog handler who volunteers his time to visit kids at the hospital. So when he starts pursuing her, Fallon can’t believe her bad timing. The thing is, Cade is different. He’s not like the college guys who see her as a one-night stand, or the high-school boyfriend who took a part of her she can never get back. Cade genuinely wants to spend time with her—and not just between the sheets.

Fallon won’t let her growing feelings for Cade get in the way of her dreams. Besides, no guy can break down the walls she put up long ago. So what’s the harm in a little flirting? It’s not like she’s falling in love. But she may have seriously underestimated how complicated things can get when the perfect guy falls for her first.

Welcome to the Dating Games Event! Each day we want to focus on a *New Adult* couple to see how well they know each other. Today we are featuring Paisley and Jagger from Eyes Turned Skyward by Rebecca Yarros! Eyes Turned Skyward was released on December 8, 2014 from Entangled: Embrace!

_________________________________________________________________________________

Dark Faerie Tales: Jagger we are going to start with you so Paisley could you please leave the room.  I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible. But I also want you to remember that this is a game, and you want your questions to match Paisley’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.

Jagger: Got it. Let’s do it.

DFT: For the first question we want to see how well you know your partner.  What do you think would be Paisley’s dream vacation? Also can you tell us what your dream vacation as well to see if Paisley knows yours as well?

Jagger: Machu Picchu, without a doubt. She wants to hike the Inca Trail. Mine? I’m happy wherever she is, but I’d kill for a week alone with her in one of those little huts on Bora-Bora.

DFT: I always love couples that strengthen and make each other better. What do you think is the best quality Paisley brings out in you? What is the best thing you bring out in her?

Jagger: Man, she brings out everything good in me. She makes me fiercely protective and yet is one of the only people who can get me to compromise. For her? I’d like to think I bring out her inner sex-kitten. She’s going to kill me for saying that.

DFT: Paisley has a bucket list she wants to complete before she dies.  What is one thing on her list that you would love to do with her?

Jagger: Ha! What can I say without turning her red? Oh, hell with it, I’m saying skinny dipping. Put all those swimming lessons to good use.

DFT: Ok these next few questions are going to be fun sexy time questions so make sure to not skimp on any details :D ! On which part of Paisley’s body does she most like to be kissed? Also what’s your favorite body part you like Paisley to kiss?

Jagger: Her breasts, without question. She’s incredibly sensitive there, and loves this little flick I do when my tongue ring is in. For me? She loves to lick across the tattoo on my lower abs, and it drives me fucking wild.

DFT: If you could have Paisley dress is anything you want, and I do mean ANYTHING, what would you choose and why?

Jagger: Easy. She has this little red sundress that I like to take off before we even leave the house. It’s not the dress that’s sexy, but the way she wears it that gets me.

DFT: How do you think you can make your sexual life more successful/fun or do you think it’s perfect the way it is?

Jagger: How can I make our sex life more successful? More hours in the day. That’s it. Do away with the need to sleep. Ever.

Eyes Turned Skyward

DFT: Ok Paisley it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Jagger.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

Paisley: Sounds good!

DFT: For the first question we want to see how well you know your partner.  What is your dream vacation? Also what do you think would be Jagger’s dream vacation?

Paisley: My dream vacation would have to be Machu Picchu. Jagger’s probably involves a beach and me naked, knowing him.

DFT: I always love couples that strengthen and make each other better. What do you think is the best quality you bring out in Jagger? What is the best thing he brings out in you?

Paisley: For Jagger, I’d probably say that I bring out his sweeter side. He’s more careful with me than other people. As for me, Jagger makes me brave, brings out a courage I never knew I had.

DFT: You have a bucket list you want to complete before you die.  What is one thing on your list that you would love Jagger to do with you?

Paisley: I’d love to see the Parthenon with him. It would be fun to get him out of his element!

DFT: Ok these next few questions are going to be fun sexy time questions so make sure to not skimp on any details :D ! On which part of your body do you most like to be kissed by Jagger? Also what is Jagger’s favorite body part he likes you to kiss?

Paisley: Oh, wow. Okay, I’d have to say my breasts. He knows that gets me. For him, he goes crazy when I kiss his stomach, which I love since he’s ripped. I mean, have you seen him shirtless? His abs were made for tracing…with my tongue.

DFT: If Jagger could have you dress is anything you want, and I do mean ANYTHING, what would he choose and why?

Paisley: (Laughs) Oh, he has a thing for this red dress I have…

DFT: How do you think you can make your sexual life more successful/fun or do you think it’s perfect the way it is?

Paisley: I’d have to say that we’re just about perfect.

DFT: Ok Jagger what did you think of Paisley’s answers?

Jagger: Ha! I nailed most of it. My dream vacation totally involves her naked, and she’s welcome to trace my abs with her tongue whenever she likes. But maybe she is right, and she brings out my sweeter side, but only with her.

DFT: Paisley what did you think of Jagger’s answers?

Paisley: He’d rather skinny dip than see the Parthenon? Of course he would. And I knew it with the red dress! And I’m going to stick with my answer for what he brings out in me. You’d think that man always has sex on his mind. Oh, wait. He does.

Thank you for having us!

Dating Games: Pretty Smart Girls by Shae Ross

February 7th, 2015 Kristie Posted in Dating Games 21 Comments »

Dating #5

Welcome to the Dating Games Event! Each day we want to focus on a *New Adult* couple to see how well they know each other. Today we are featuring Jett and Ryan from Pretty Smart Girls by Shae Ross! Pretty Smart Girls was released on January 26, 2015 from Entangled: Embrace. Want to know our thoughts on this book? Read Bridget’s review here.

*Enter for your chance to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card! Don’t forget to enter here for the Dating Games International giveaway!*

_________________________________________________________________________________

Dark Faerie Tales: Ryan we are going to start with you so Jett could you please leave the room.  I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible. But I also want you to remember that this is a game, and you want your questions to match Jett’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.

Knowing what your boyfriend’s favorite things are can be helpful in a relationship whenever you find yourself in trouble and need something to apologize with.  So I want to know what it is you would do or give to Jett to get yourself out of the doghouse?  What is something he should do for you if he finds himself in the doghouse?

Ryan Rose: I love it when Jett brings me coffee in the morning.  If he were in the dog house, that would be a good start.  And if I were in the dog house, I’d start by bringing him coffee too, just with a lot less clothes on.

DFT: From the sounds of things both you and Jett are very competitive people which can be really fun, but also hard in a relationship at times.  What is the one thing that you two are always competing over?

Ryan Rose: The last word. Whenever Jett and I are having a discussion about something and our opinions differ—and by differ I mean, Jett’s wrong—we both want to make the final point. I have to continually remind him that anything he says after I’ve made my final point really just starts another argument.

DFT: What was your impression of Jett the first time you met him?  What do you think his first impression of you was?

Ryan Rose: I thought he was a complete ass.  He thought I was an easy party girl—and that’s why I thought he was an ass.

DFT: When it comes to seducing your man what is the one thing that never fails to turn him on? What is the one thing that he does that you can’t ever resist?

Ryan Rose: I think Jett will say when I wear thigh highs and nothing else.  And I love it when he kisses my neck.

DFT: What is your number one sexual fantasy you would like to try with Jett?

Ryan Rose: The first night I met Jett we were at a cocktail reception at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.  For reasons I won’t go into, we got off to a disastrous start. I did something that wasn’t very nice—but Jett deserved it.  So all of our interactions that night were really intense. Jett sought me out in a back hallway to discuss it with me. We were nose to nose in a heated argument and the sexual chemistry between us was sparking.

I’d like to go back to the Met…back to that hallway…and give in to what we were both feeling at that moment.

DFT: If Jett was a magician which article of clothing of yours would he want to make disappear and why?

Ryan Rose: Well, if we were in a public place, I think it would be my bra.  If we were alone, I think he’d say my panties…for obvious reasons.

Pretty Smart Girls

DFT: Ok Jett it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Ryan.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

Knowing what your girlfriends favorite things are can be helpful in a relationship whenever you find yourself in trouble and need something to apologize with.  So I want to know what it is you would do or give to Ryan to get yourself out of the doghouse?  What is something she should do for you if she finds herself in the doghouse?

Jett Trebuchet: If I were in the dog house I’d let Ryan win something.  She always feels better when she whips my ass in something.  And if she were in the doghouse, the less she had on the quicker she’d get out.

DFT: From the sounds of things both you and Ryan are very competitive people which can be really fun, but also hard in a relationship at times.  What is the one thing that you two are always competing over?

Jett Trebuchet: Well, I admit, I like to have the last word and so does Ryan.

DFT: What was your impression of Ryan the first time you met her?  What do you think her first impression of you was?

Jett Trebuchet: I’m pretty sure she thought I was a jerk.  I thought Ryan was beautiful but if I’m going to get this answer right, Ryan will say I thought she was beautiful, dumb and (cough) easy.

DFT: When it comes to seducing you what is the one thing that Ryan does that never fails to turn you on?

Jett Trebuchet: Everything Ryan does turns me on but if I have to pick one thing, it’s her intelligence.

DFT: What is the one thing you do that she can’t ever resist?

Jett Trebuchet: I start by kissing her neck. I work my way up until I’m over her ear and then I tell her all the things I plan to do to her.  Hasn’t failed me yet.

DFT: What is your number one sexual fantasy you would like to try with Ryan?

Jett Trebuchet: Yacht for the weekend on the ocean. Ryan couldn’t wear anything but sunscreen.

DFT: If you were a magician which article of clothing of Ryan’s would you want to make disappear and why?

Jett Trebuchet: Definitely the bra. We are both busy during the week but we have a standing date Friday night.  When I wake up Saturday morning Ryan makes me breakfast. She thinks I’m reading the sports page but I’m really watching her. I have a vivid picture of her in my mind, humming and whisking eggs in my shirt—without the bra. Lately it has been my favorite hour of the week.

DFT: Ryan you now get to tell us what you thought of Jett’s answers?

Ryan Rose: I loved all of his answers except the thing about the last word. I’m surprised he thinks he can still get the last word.

DFT: Jett what did you think of Ryan’s answers?

Jett Trebuchet: Well, I do have the last question, Rose, and therefore, the last word.

About this Book:

Team Ryan
Ryan Rose and her fellow Spartans are finalists in a high-profile entrepreneurial competition. They’re competing for life-changing money and for their futures. They have a solid plan to win. All they need to do is trounce the competition: rich frat boys from an archrival university. Easy, right?

Team Jett
Jett Trebuchet’s first mistake was not realizing that Ryan and her friends were the competition. His second was expressing his unabashed confidence in his team’s ability to win. After all, everyone knows the only thing MSU does better than U of M is produce beautiful, easy women…oh, and he almost forgot to say “dumb.” And boy, does his team pay for that one.

Game On
As each side tries to game the other, something else seems to be getting in the way—attraction. Now Ryan and Jett must keep their teams from getting distracted by the opposite sex…and each other. All is not fair in love and war when it comes to winning this game.

_________________________________________________________________________________

Dark Faerie Tales: Dylan we are going to start with you so Renee could you please leave the room.  I am planning on asking you a few questions and I want you to be as honest as possible. But I also want you to remember that this is a game, and you want your questions to match Renee’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.

It is important to learn the little things about the person you are dating like habits or favorite things of theirs.  What is something Renee tends to do when she is nervous or uncomfortable? Also can you answer the same questions about yourself?

Dylan: Renee always bites her nails when she’s nervous. When I’m nervous, especially if it’s before I’m about to perform, I like to have a drink to ease my nerves.

DFT: Living in Boston there are so many fun things you can do together as a couple.  If you were to plan the perfect date with Renee what would it entail?

Dylan: Since we’re both music lovers, I’d probably take her to dinner then to a live show. We usually go to Bella’s on our date nights – it’s our favorite Italian restaurant in the North End.

DFT: Music is obviously something that is very important to both of you. I want to know what song you would use to describe your relationship with Renee?

Dylan: Oh, that’s an easy one. The song “Lover You Should’ve Come Over” by Jeff Buckley is actually the song that brought us together.

DFT: Ok these next few questions are pretty intimate, but fun to ask so don’t skimp on any of the details! What is the one thing you like most that Renee does during sex? What it the one thing she likes most that you do during sex?

Dylan: I love when she starts off with a blowjob, or finishes with a blowjob. She loves it when I grab her boobs when she’s on top.

DFT: After sex are you a sleeper or are you ready for more?

Dylan: Depends on the day. If she’s up for another round, I can usually go again pretty quickly.

DFT: Do you like to talk naughty to Renee to get her in the mood and if so what is the naughty word you use most to tease her?

Dylan: I’m not much of a dirty talker, but Renee has told me I tend to say “fuck” a lot when I really get into the mood. Apparently “oh fuck,” “fuck babe,” and “fuck me” are my most common phrases. Renee is more of a dirty talker when she has a few drinks in her.

Sound BitesLove Bites

DFT: Ok Renee it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Dylan.  Try to see if you can get the same answers and both of you will get to comment at the end on each other’s answers!

For our first question I want to know what is something you tend to do when you are nervous or uncomfortable? What does Dylan do when he is nervous or uncomfortable?

Renee: I chew on my thumbnail when I’m nervous. Sometimes I laugh in uncomfortable situations to ease the tension. When Dylan’s nervous, he usually plays with the ring he wears on his thumb and avoids eye contact. Unless it’s before a show. Then he drinks a glass of Jack Daniels.

DFT: Living in Boston there are so many fun things you can do together as a couple.  If you were to plan the perfect date with Dylan what would it entail?

Renee: I know Dylan’s answer to this – he loves going to Bella’s in the North End. If I’m being honest though, I’d love to get out of Boston and take a trip to New York City with him. It’s a sentimental place for us.

DFT: Music is obviously something that is very important to both of you. I want to know what song you would use to describe your relationship with Dylan?

Renee: Jeff Buckley’s song “Lover You Should’ve Come Over” is the reason we’re together, so definitely that one. I heard Dylan performing it and I couldn’t believe how incredible he sounded. Seeing as I have a weak spot for musicians, it was all over from there  :-)

DFT: Ok these next few questions are pretty intimate, but fun to ask so don’t skimp on any of the details! What is the one thing you like most that Dylan does during sex? What it the one thing he likes most that you do during sex?

Renee: Well I can only orgasm when I’m on top, so I love that he always pulls me on top and lets me finish first. And I love when he grabs my boobs and my ass when I’m riding him. Dylan’s a big fan of oral sex, especially when he’s on top, so I usually prop a few pillows under my neck to get comfortable and start him off with that. Occasionally he likes the reverse cowgirl position, or to flip me onto my side.

DFT: After sex are you a sleeper or are you ready for more?

Renee: One of the things I was most impressed with when Dylan and I first started dating was how quickly he could go again – he was like a teenage boy! If Dylan is in the mood to go again, I’m always up for it.

DFT: Does Dylan like to talk naughty to you to get you in the mood, and if so what is the naughty word he uses most to tease you?

Renee: Dylan’s a little shy when it comes to the dirty talk, but when I’m drunk I love to tell him how to fuck me and get him in the mood.

DFT: Ok Dylan you now have a chance to comment on Renee’s answers and what you think of them!

Dylan: I never really noticed it, but I guess I do like to toy with my thumb ring when I’m uncomfortable. And New York City doesn’t count – the question specifically mentioned Boston!

I do agree with everything else though – and yes, I love reverse cowgirl  :D

DFT: Now it’s your turn Renee, do you think Dylan’s answers were correct?

Renee: I do, although I think Bella’s is more his favorite than mine. And as much as I love seeing a show with him, sometimes a few drinks and good conversation is just as perfect.

Available December 5, 2013 from HarperCollins

About this Book:

Renee Evans has a knack for trouble. After walking in on her best friend and boyfriend in bed together, twenty-five year-old Renee flees sunny Los Angeles and her dream job as a music journalist and returns to her hometown of Boston – only to meet Dylan Cavallari, the mysterious, aspiring musician who lives in her apartment building. Dylan’s piercing gaze and womanizing demeanor make him exactly the type of guy that Renee should steer clear of – which is most likely the reason she falls for him. But when Renee’s troublesome ex comes back and threatens to drive her and Dylan apart, Renee is forced to face her past and save her relationship with Dylan before it’s too late.

Sound Bites dramatizes what happens when Renee finds herself caught between a painful past and an uncertain future. Happiness turns out to be within her grasp, but it all depends on whether she can trust herself enough to make the right decisions. Sound Bites is a novel about love, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness, and the power of music to help you find your way.
