Would You Rather - Authors Play!

Maybe I have a screw loose or maybe I'm just a lot of fun. I'd like to think the latter. I know most everyone has either heard or played, Would You Rather, but I got to thinking, "Wouldn't it be fun to rope some of my author friends into playing?"

If you do not laugh your ass off or enjoy the responses, you probably wouldn't have a good time at your own birthday party with a gift you always wanted waiting for you, wrapped all pretty. Just saying. 

Without further ado, let's get this party started. Shall we? 

I posed each author a Would You Rather question. Some I made up, others I found. I drew a question randomly for each author. Let's see how they responded!

Siobhan Muir, Would You Rather give up cheese or sex for the rest of your life?

Her response: HA! Cheese would be gone so fast, you'd think it had never been invented. Cheese provides a momentary pleasure - oral sex has long lasting ramifications. I'd never give it up, for me or for him. And just in case you don't believe me, you can read my books. There is at least one scene of "lip service" in every one of my stories, but there's a really good one in Queen Bitch of the Callowwood Pack.

Blurb:  Julianna Morris didn’t know werewolves existed…until she became one.

Hiding her new identity, Julianna returns home only to find her teenage crush, Jeff Lightfoot, is the future Alpha of the Callowwood werewolf pack. She’s unexpectedly chosen as a candidate for the pack’s next Luna, the Alpha female—and Jeff’s mate. This is perfect, except Julianna knows nothing about being a werewolf, and someone’s determined to make her fail the Seven Tests of the Luna.

Jeff Lightfoot lusted after Julianna for years, even when he thought she was human. Now she’s home and all his—if she passes the tests. She’s his True Mate and he wants no one else, but pack politics trump Mother Nature and will prevent him from choosing Julianna if she fails.

For the future she wants, Julianna must pass the tests to become Queen Bitch of Callowwood—or watch Jeff take another woman as his mate.

Susan Hayes, Would You Rather be stranded on a deserted island alone or with someone you hate?

Her response: I would rather be stranded with someone I hate than no one at all. At best, we’ll work together to survive and get past the hate. At worst, It will be like Survivor without the cameras or the crew eating pizza off-screen. I always do better when I have a goal, and  “Live longer than that jackass,” would work nicely as a mission statement!

Blurb: Security consultant Sinjin Heath is on leave while recovering from a mission that went tragically wrong. The physical scars may have healed, but he still doubts his ability to protect anyone, ever again.

Michelle Jamieson is starting over. She’s finally escaped from her abusive ex-boyfriend, Robert. The only problem is that her ex isn’t ready to let her go. When he realizes she’s truly out of his reach, his obsession drives Robert to kill himself so he can return as a malevolent ghost.

The sparks between them fly fast and hot, but before they can begin to face their growing feelings for each other, Robert’s ghost comes for Michelle. Ready or not, Sinjin finds himself back in the protection business. And if he fails this time, he’ll lose the woman he loves.

Worse yet, as much as she digs Jax, he’s been completely turning her off lately by pushing her toward a real commitment…the kind that comes with fangs. Kit is torn. Does she really love Jax, or is she truly only ready for a boy toy? 
But it appears she may have underestimated Jax, who shows up at Club Heat to surprise her in a whole new ensemble…leather jacket, hand ties and all. The only problem is, when Kit’s ready for round two, Jax doesn’t actually remember any of it. Is Jax lying? Has Kit gone crazy? Or are they both suffering from a mysterious case of double vision?

Laurie Roma, Would You Rather have the best sex of your life in front of the audience or boring sex at home in privacy?

Rebecca Joyce, Would You Rather have your mate slap you on the back of the head and yell, "Whammy!" every time he orgasms or have him last one minute before orgasm? 

Her response: Okay Hennessee....I swear you came up with this question just to see what my response would have been...LOL....Would I rather have my mate slap me on the back of the head and yell, "Whammy!" every time he orgasms....only if he is brave enough when I point my loaded 9mm Baretta hand gun at his head, if he feels the urge to proceed. Or....would I rather have him last one minute before he orgasms... if he values his nightly pussy privileges that can be taken away at a moments notice he better last longer than a minute! But seriously...regardless of the situation, one good slap deserves another...cause there is nothing worse that unsatisfied sexual gratification...and I so love to be satisfied!

  4. That was so much fun Henn! Hmmm, I think next time YOU should have to answer a question too! ;)

  5. LOL What a great set of questions and responses. I think I must have read the question wrong and answered only about oral sex. But the same goes for sex in general. I'd NEVER give it up. Far too beneficial for everyone. :D Thanks for posting, Hennessee.

  6. Too funny! I want a ringside seat to that striptease that James is giving, and Rebecca I'm afraid that the mental image of "Whammy" will not make be crack up laughing in the middle of sex!

  7. OMG this was too funny !! I totally want to play this at RT with some of my favorite authors.

  8. Everyone's answers were great. That was so much fun, Henn! Thanks for doing this with us. :)
