Today we have the blog tour for HOUSE RULES by Cathryn Fox! Check out our tour stop and grab your copy today!!
House Rules Synopsis:The last thing I expected to fine in my dossier was sexy stockings, a plane voucher to London and an invitation to dance at a gentleman’s club. I’m a quiet museum curator for God’s sake. No way, no how am I going to slide down a pole for a bunch of over privileged, narcissistic men—until I see Sean Fraser, my childhood crush, enter the establishment. Since I’m no longer that overweight teen with braces and mousey hair, there is no way he’ll recognize me. Hmmm… Maybe I’ll give him a fake name—and a private dance. That ought to make him finally notice me, right? What the hell is Kennedy Lane doing sliding down a pole in a private Gentlemen’s club? I’m not sure, and while I know she’s hands off, I want her. I’ve always wanted her. She might have been too young for me back in the day. Now, not so much. Hands off leads to hands on after a private dance, and while Kennedy spends the weekend pretending to be someone she isn’t, I know full well who she is. And I’m not quite ready to let her hand up her stockings when the show is over.

Have you ever played Truth or Dare, or other fun games like Spin the Bottle when you were a kid? I’m pretty sure most of us have played some kind of game where we had to reveal something secretive about ourselves, or run into the other room and kiss your best friend’s older brother. Am I speaking from experience here…ahem, yeah!
I totally had a HUGE crush on my best friend’s older brother. There was about a five-year age gap, and of course to him, I was the annoying little girl who hung around the house with his equally annoying sister. I had many sleepovers at my friend’s house and when…oh, let’s call him Rick…was staying at a friend’s place for the night (as he did most weekends) my friend’s mother would put me in his bed to sleep. Oh, the fantasies of a thirteen year old. LOL. I used to lay there, with my PG 13 fantasies running amok, and imagine what it would be like if he came home, didn’t know I was in his bed, and crawled in with me. I would picture his face shocked t first, but then we’d kiss and he’d profess his love to me, telling me he was only with all those other girls (there were a lot of them, he was hot!) to get his mind off me. Oh, the imagination I had. Is it any wonder I grew up to write romance?
My best friend and I, along with a few other girls, would often play Truth or Dare. When Rick was home, I always picked Dare, and finally, FINALLY, one of my friends dared me to run into the other room and kiss him. I did, and unfortunately it didn’t turn out quite the way I’d imagined when I was in his bed fantasying about him, but he was nice enough, and didn’t embarrass me—very different from the way it plays out in HOUSE RULES, where candy and not kisses are involved.
When I sat down to write House Rules, and used my favorite trope of best friend’s older brother, I pulled a lot from my real life and even had the game of Truth or Dare mentioned a time or two. Of course it’s been years since I played the children’s version of the game, but after doing a search I found an adult version, which is going to go to one lucky winner to celebrate the release of House Calls.
Since we’re talking about games, have you played Cards Against Humanity? OMG, my son gave me this for Christmas and I played it with hubby, my son and my son’s girlfriend over the holidays. It’s pretty racy at times, and my son’s girlfriend said, I could never play this with my parents. I loved it so much I invited 3 couples over a few weeks back and we played. I laughed so hard, I ended up with a headache by the end of the night, but fortunately there was wine to help with that. You sure can learn a lot about a person, with a game like that. If you haven’t played, I highly recommend it.
So tell me, what sexy, fun adult games have you played and would recommend to me? I’m looking to purchase a few more!
