"It's Just Sext" by Felice Fox (Guest Post/Giveaway)




Heroes and Muses

Have you ever read a book and wished the hero was someone real? A man you could go out, actually find, and make yours?

Yup. That’s what I thought. Me too. Many times. If Lorelei James told me Bennett McKay was based on a man she knew, I would move to Wyoming. Tomorrow. Likewise Sylvia Day and her Gideon Cross.

So who are these heroes? Are they real? I can only speak for my own work. I spin stories from kernels of truth, and heroes from dreamy men I have met. My muses have always been people I’ve encountered personally, but do not know well.

While writing my first novel, Take Me for Longing, I had a particular real life musician in mind for the hero, Nic Taylor. The book had become a bestseller and around the same time, his band played a gig in Los Angeles. I went to the show and gave him a copy. I told him he had inspired the hero of my steamy romance novel.

He said: “You’re gonna make me blush.” I replied: “Wait ‘til you read page 69.” (I know, I know. I’m embarrassed I said it. But the first sex scene does occur at that exact page number, completely by coincidence.) We talked for a while and I began to realize how different this man and Nic really were. Until that moment I had not been sure how much his character and personality had been created by my own imagination. In the process of writing the story, Nic became his own man. The person standing in front of me was a total hottie, but he wasn’t Nic.

I like to have a particular man in mind when writing, but while the image I start with might be a real person, the character he becomes on the page is someone different. He is transformed by his experiences in the story as much as any of us would be in real life.

Even so, a part of me always wants to believe the hero is out there somewhere, just waiting for me… Or you.


It's Just Sext
(The Right Kind of Wrong #1) 
Publishing Date: 11/26/12

She swore it was ‘just sext’, and nothing more…

Lauren has been texting for months with a man she met online, carefully editing the details of her life, sending him only the best of herself—the hottest pictures, the highlights of her day, and her most hard core sexual fantasies. A merchant marine, he traveled the world, so it was safe enough. They would never actually meet, so why not? Her self-esteem could use a little boost.

Marc’s “no talking, only texting” rule was strictly enforced when it came to the sexy thing he met online. She was his ultimate fantasy girl and he wanted to keep it that way. But when his ship is scheduled to dock in a port near her home, he lays it all on the line for the chance at a weekend of hot sex—and maybe something more.

When they finally meet, the heat that smoldered for months feels a lot like love. Forced to tease reality from fantasy, months of texting foreplay ignites into wildfire—something hotter, deeper and sweeter than they had ever imagined.

Perfect Sext
(The Right Kind of Wrong #2)
Publishing Date: 3/1/13

Marc was her naughty little wish come true. His new assignment to a ship working out of the port of Long Beach will have him sailing back to Lauren a few weekends a month. It's just enough time to act out the intensely erotic texts they share while he's at sea, but will it be enough to build something real? Alone in their seaside hotel room, Marc knows how to bring out the dirty girl in Lauren, though it's her trust he wants most. She will do almost anything with him--anything but bring him home.

Warning: This short story includes more toe-curling dirty talk, and may lead to sex on a Ferris Wheel.



Excerpt from “It’s Just Sext” by Felice Fox

         Lauren sat down on a corner of the bed, switched the television on, then off again. She could sense his approach, somewhere in the dark, making his way to her from across the country, across the city, to this hotel, this room, this space, after months of pure, ridiculous, long-distance lusting over, of all things, text messaging.
         She chose to meet him at a hotel, not let him into her home, her perfectly meted out personal space. She was crazy to let him in at all, but she didn’t know how to protect herself at this point. From a distance, she could, sure. He was just some guy sending her love notes, photos and videos, and who mysteriously refused to actually speak to her over the phone. But what would she do when he reached her door? Her limbs shook and she had to move. She couldn’t wait in the hotel room for him. Maybe if she met him in the lobby or on the street she could maintain some distance, a safe space between them for a little while longer. Give her time to think, settle into the idea of him being...real. Plus, from the lobby she could still run.
         This had been her problem all along. She could not stay still when it came to him. He did something to her—his eyes, his lips, the way he touched himself and showed her everything without holding back. They all conspired to plough her under—make her lose her footing and stumble onto her own hand, rubbing almost incessantly to soothe, over and over again, her constant state of arousal. She was like a trained pet—one look at him and she was overheated and begging. Her own sense of propriety kept her from giving in and telling him what she wanted, what she would do to him given the chance. But he knew well enough. That was why he was almost here, after all.
         He had sent her photo after naked photo of himself, and each time she found herself wanting a little more. It had been going on for months since they discovered each other’s profiles online. She lived in Santa Monica, and he worked on cruise ships. Marc spent his months circling the globe from one port to the next—though never anywhere near hers. Until now.
        

It’s Just Sext and the sequel Perfect Sext are available now at Amazon. Hotter than Sext, the final story in the series, will be available April 2013.



Felice attributes her love of romance novels to an early, feverish bout with The Kissing Disease. Take Me for Longing, a current Amazon bestseller, was her fiction debut. Her latest release, It's Just Sext, hit #1 on Amazon's Bestselling Sex Books list in less than three weeks.

Felice began writing professionally in 2001 and is a bestselling author in the non-fiction market. Her work appears in online learning courses and many popular retail websites. She works, lives and loves in Los Angeles, California.

There are many men in books I have wondered, not so much if it was based on someone real, but if someone like that might actually exist. :) Your books sounds really good and I'm adding it to my TBR! Thank you for a chance to win a copy.
