Dark Faerie Tales: Matt we are going to start with you so Joss do you mind leaving the room for a minute. 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 Joss’s if possible so keep that in mind when you are answering each question.
So obliviously you and Joss started out as good friends so you should know a lot about each other and I am expecting you guys to do really well on this quiz (no pressure or anything ). For my first question I want to know what Joss’s all time favorite movie is? Also what is your favorite movie to see if she knows it?
Matt: Joss’s all time favorite movie…she’ll tell you it’s Roman Holiday, but it’s actually Bring It On. Mine is definitely The Shawshank Redemption.
DFT: We know that you two have a great friends with benefit relationship going on so I was wondering what do you usually talk about after sex?
Matt: Her hair. Because it drives me crazy when it’s in my face. <laughs>
DFT: Who was Joss’s closet childhood friend growing up and are they still friends?
Matt: Monica something. I never met her. I think they might be Facebook friends now.
DFT: What one item of clothing do you wear that Joss can’t stand?
Matt: <grins> My red Badgers hat.
DFT: Ok these next few questions are going to be fun sexy times questions so make sure to not skimp on any details ! On which part of Joss’s body does she most like to be kissed? Also what’s your favorite body part you like Joss to kiss?
Matt: She likes to be kissed right between her shoulder blades along her spine. It makes her make this sound I really really like.
And for me…honestly? It’s boring, but I just like to be kissed on the lips.
DFT: Where is your favorite place to have sex and what position do you like most?
Matt: Is anywhere an answer? ‘Cause I’m not real picky about where. Everywhere is good. And I guess my favorite position depends on where we are. Whatever works, you know?
DFT: Ok Joss it is now your turn to come on out and answer all the same questions that we just asked Matt. 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!
So obliviously you and Matt started out as good friends so you should know a lot about each other and I am expecting you guys to do really well on this quiz (no pressure or anything ). For my first question I want to know what your all time favorite movie is? Also what is Matt’s favorite movie?
Joss: Roman Holiday. It’s so romantic and classy. Matt’s favorite is The Shawshank Redemption, every time it’s on TV he puts it on even though we’ve already seen it like a thousand times.
DFT: We know that you and Matt have a great friends with benefit relationship going on so I was wondering what do you usually talk about after sex?
Joss: Um…anything, really. I mean, he always asks if I’m okay—always. And then he tells me to get my hair out of his face. <laughs> But then we just talk about whatever’s on our minds. Or fall asleep.
DFT: Who was your closet childhood friend growing up and are you still friends?
Joss: Monica Finch. We’re Facebook friends, but she lives in St. Louis now.
DFT: What one item of clothing does Matt wear that you can’t stand?
Joss: Oh god, that horrible hat of his. One of these days, I’m going to accidentally throw it out of a moving car or something.
DFT: Ok these next few questions are going to be fun sexy times questions so make sure to not skimp on any details ! On which part of your body do you like Matt to kiss most? And which body part does Matt like you to kiss most?
Joss: I can only pick one? Mmm, that’s hard. He’s kind of awesome with kissing. Wait, forget I said that, he’ll be gloating all day. Um, my neck? Sure, that. And what does he like…hmm…you know that’s a good question. I think I’d have to say his lips. Can that be my answer?
DFT: Where is your favorite place to have sex and what position do you like most?
Joss: Not the kitchen floor! <laughs> I guess I’m boring. I like a nice soft bed. And as for position, I’d say I like being on top. Matt’s up for anything as long as my hair isn’t tickling his nose.
DFT: Alright Matt how do you think Joss did? Were her answers pretty accurate?
Matt: You totally lied about the movie. You know it’s Bring It On.
Joss: I woudn’t say it’s my favorite. Roman Holiday is a much classier movie. I mean, Audrey Hepburn, for heaven’s sake.
Matt: Such a liar. If both movies were playing at the same time, which one would you want to watch?
Joss: It would depend on my mood.
Matt: <gives her a look>
Joss: Okay, shut up. What about the rest of my answers, smart guy?
Matt: You got my favorite movie right anyway. And the stuff about your hair.
Joss: I cannot be held responsible for my hair. These curls have a mind of their own.
Matt: I love your curls. Just not up my nose. But you’re wrong about your favorite body part.
Joss: Oh really? You think you know better?
Matt: I know I do, you’ll see. But you are right about my awesomeness.
Joss: I knew I shouldn’t have said that.
Matt: No harm in telling the truth. Speaking of which, we rocked that kitchen floor.
Joss: You weren’t the one on your knees.
Matt: I got you hotpads to put under them, didn’t I?
Joss: <grins> My knight in shining armor.
DFT: Joss what do you think of Matt’s answers?
Joss: I’m glad to hear he recognizes the heinousness of the Badgers hat, anyway.
Matt: I only acknowledge that you hate it, not that there is anything wrong with the hat itself.
Joss: That hat better watch its back, that’s all I’m saying.
Matt: You wouldn’t dare.
Joss: <laughs evilly>
Matt: Uh huh. Very scary. Do you at least admit I’m right about your favorite body part?
Joss: What did you say it was…? Oh. Yeah…that’s a very good spot. Mmm.
Joss: Fine, you got that one right.
Matt: Told you.
Joss: But I’m very disappointed in us about the rest. Neither of us has a favorite place or position? Really? That seems sad.
Matt: It’s not sad. It just means we’re that good together. Location is a mere detail.
Joss: Okay, then we clearly have to work on the position thing.
Matt: I’m listening…
Joss: We’ll just have to try them all. For science.
Matt: God, I love the way you think.
Liz Czukas is a freelance writer (on sometimes sad or boring topics), and also writes books for young adults (which are rarely sad and full of kissing). Before that, she was a nurse and she still kind of misses starting IVs.
She lives outside Milwaukee, WI with her husband, son and the world’s loudest cat. She types too loud (according to her husband), spends too much time on the Internet, and can’t get enough of disaster movies. There is *always* a song stuck in her head, and she once won a hula-hoop contest.
If you are interested in honing your stalking skills (from a distance, please) Liz welcomes you to practice on Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, or better yet, Twitter where she likes to hang out and talk about TV, writing, Harrison Ford, her kid, and all of the idiotic things she does to injure herself on a routine basis.
Liz is also the real person behind the New Adult novelist Ellie Cahill, who also writes books full of kissing (and more!). Ellie has remarkably similar interests to Liz.

About this Book:
Ellie Cahill is poised to coin the term “sorbet sex” with her charming twist on the age-old ‘friends-with-benefits’ story.
Dating can be fun, but it can leave a nasty taste in your mouth. For Joss, ever since her longtime boyfriend cheated on her, she doesn’t want her last memory of a guy to be that jerk. Enter her college friend, Matt. They come up with a theory: after a bad break-up, a person needs to cleanse the palate with a little sorbet sex. Lovers for a night, but always back to being friends in the morning. The two can handle it because they have a contract: rules they wrote, rules they follow and rules they can sometimes bend. The arrangement works: everyone needs a little sorbet now and again … until it starts to be the only thing you want. And then Joss breaks the one rule they never wrote down: don’t fall in love.
