Spilling the Beans with Jessica E. Subject

Hi, Jessica! So glad to have you at Spilling the Beans, where we can learn a little bit about you, and your book. Grab a cappuccino and let’s chat. Unless you have another favorite drink (alcoholic or otherwise)?
Thank you so much for inviting me to spilling the beans, Cate!  I prefer Iced Cappuccino, but if you don’t have that, a water is fine.

Fur or feathers, petwise?
We have a furry lop-eared rabbit. Though only one of his ears flops down. And we have fish as well.

So I should have asked, fur or fin, lol. Any pet peeves? One thing that really burns your biscuits?
Intolerance.

I couldn't agree more. What’s your guilty pleasure?
Lindor White Chocolate truffles

Yum. :) If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
The ability to fly. Though extendable arms wouldn’t hurt either.

Yes! Like the mom in The Incredibles. That would be handy. If you could live out any fantasy, what would you do?
I’d live on a private island with my husband and kids.

Beethoven, Beatles, Foo Fighters or Keith Urban (what type(s) of music makes you rock out)?
Can’t say I listen to any of those. Maybe a bit of Beethoven. Oldies for me are Queen and Styx. I also like to listen to Foxes, Rihanna, Pitbull, Kelly Clarkson, and more in the dance and pop genres.

Does music influence your writing? Do you have a music playlist for your book?
Yes, music is definitely an influence in my writing. Most of my stories have their own playlist, though there are some that don’t. My most recent release. Alien Adoration, was actually inspired by the song Spaceman by Bif Naked.

Cool. Which of your characters would you most/least want to hang out with, and why?
I’d love to hang out with Rachel and Luke. Rachel is really sweet, and Luke is a sexy alien. As for who I wouldn’t want to hang out with? That would be Dirk and Jenny. Mostly because they don’t have any morals.

While creating your books, what was one of the most surprising things you learned? 
With any story, it’s the ending that usually surprises me. I usually always have my stories roughly outlined before I start writing them. But the ending ALWAYS changes on me. I don’t mind though. The new endings are always better. J

Love it when characters hijack a story. :) Where can readers find out more about you?
I’m always sharing information on my blog. I also blog on Backward Momentum and Paranormal Romantics. I’m always on twitter, and Facebook, too.

Thanks for spilling the beans today, Jessica!

Alien Adoration
Alien Next Door book 1
By Jessica E. Subject
Erotic Sci-Fi Romance
ISBN: 978-0991932009

Erotic dreams fill her with need…
Night after night, Rachel fantasizes about her sexy, playboy neighbor. But in her small town, no one changes, least of all the bad boy next door. But when Luke rescues her not once but twice from disastrous dates, she dares to believe her knight in black leather armor may be the right man for her after all.  
Until she learns the truth...
Life on Earth has never been easy for Luke. Stranded as a little boy, he struggled to craft an existence for himself, but he never forgot the first human he met--and he never stopped wanting to see her again. Returning to Hanton, Luke longs for Rachel. Yet, nothing goes as he plans, and Rachel barely notices him. Convincing her he isn't like all the jerks she's dated means telling her the truth, but can she handle it? 
Can she overcome her fears, or will she deny her alien adoration and leave him stranded once more?

Excerpt

“Need a lift?”
The voice was deep and masculine, one she didn’t hear very often, but would recognize anywhere. Luke. Wonderful! He wouldn’t talk to me before, but now that I’m topless and sopping wet, he notices me.
She circled slowly to stare at the leather-clad figure sitting atop his motorcycle. The visor of his helmet covered most of his face, leaving only his luscious lips and deep, jutting chin, covered in light stubble, exposed. What would they feel like against her lips? Between her legs? Her body tingled.
“Earth to Rachel. Do you need a lift, or should I leave you here in the pouring rain?”
Oh God, he knows my name. Since they’d never actually talked—she’d only heard him greeting his dates—her name on his lips came as a surprise. “Um, yes, I’d appreciate a ride.” On his Harley, and if she was lucky, in his bed. Anywhere. Her romance-first rule didn’t apply to him. He’d already seduced her plenty in her dreams.
Remaining on his bike, he yanked a helmet from his saddlebag and held it out to her. “What happened to your pretty blouse?”
Pretty blouse? He’d seen her earlier? “I….” Fluttering rolled through her stomach. “I don’t want to talk about it.”
She grabbed the helmet from him, fit it over her soaked hair, and buckled the chinstrap. Straddling the seat behind him, she fumbled with her hands, wondering where to place them, no bar behind her to hold on to. Oh, what it would be like to wrap her arms around him, lean against his wide back covered in leather. But what if he didn’t want her to touch him?
Luke pushed off from the curb. “I suggest you hold onto me or you’re going to fall off.”
The bike lurched forward with a roar. She clasped her hands around his waist, her fingers coming together temptingly close to his manhood, cheek pressed to his cowskin jacket. His deep chuckle reverberated across her skin.
“I told you to hang on.”
And she could lean on him forever. Being so close to him with pure raw power between her legs moved her better than any fantasy she had ever created. But what is going to happen when he takes me home? Or will he invite me to his house instead?
She pressed her lips together. Sure, she wanted to know what lay under his tight pants, but she refused to be another conquest. I can’t handle it.
He drove into her driveway too soon, leaning the bike over enough for her to slip off. She removed the helmet and handed it back to him. “Thank you. I appreciate the ride.”
Tucking the helmet away, he nodded. “You want to come over for coffee?”
That and more. Though she refused to go anywhere in her state of disarray. “Um, no, I’m kind of wet.”
“Another time, then?”
She nodded. Shit, why did I say no? They could strip down together and have all kinds of fun. But he drove away before she had a chance to retract her words.

Music always inspires my writing.
Congratulations on you book, Jessica.

Jessica Subject said...

Thank you, Alex! Yes, music is very important. Helps to convey emotions, I think. :-)

I need to check out more Bif Naked--discovered a very nice Mountie-themed boylesque striptease done to her "I Love Myself Today" a week or so ago on YouTube. I've always had a soft spot for spaceboys, so I think this should be fun.
