*** GUEST POST*** The Dom with a Safeword AND The Dom on the Naughty List by Cari Silverwood, Leia Shaw and Sorcha Black

The Dom with a Safeword (Badass Brats, #1)
( Badass Brats Book 1) 
Book Blurb:
Late at night, on an amateur ghost hunt, Sabrina and her best friend Q are caught trespassing by the gorgeous, blonde Jude. The embers of attraction between them sizzle when they discover Jude’s kinks match their own.

Jude is a Dom on his last summer of freedom before starting the prison sentence that is med school. Q is a bad-ass bi switch who knows what she wants, and for years it’s been her cute, doe-eyed straight friend Sabrina. But the only way into Sabrina’s heart and panties may be with Jude’s fist wrapped in her hair.

Domming the bratty Q and mischievous Sabrina isn't going to be easy but Jude relishes the challenge. At the end of the summer, will they find a way to stay together when everything is tearing them apart?
Angie E's Review:

FIRST and FOREMOST….. This book was 100 degree’s of PURE ENTERTAINMENT ! I loved it and would give it 100 stars on a 5 star scale. I have had my eye on this book to read for quite some time so when our blog (shameless plug: TWINSIETALK) was approached for a review I WANTED IT. This was my first read with a polyamorous relationship and I had my doubts. I mean how can a 3 person relationship work without jealousy? This book completely changed my mind. The love of the 3 characters are so strong (especially between Sabrina and Q) that I had NO DOUBT this could AND would work! I was hooked immediately from page 1. When I realized that Sabrina and Q were doing a ghost hunt I was HOOKED… YES! I’m a dork for my love or paranormal investigations and YES I myself have been involved with REAL LIFE GHOST HUNTS =) . So I was immediately drawn to Sabrina’s character for her love of ghost. I found that I identified more with Sabrina’s character throughout the story. Q intrigued me the most of the 3some. Her dark character and goth looks was what drew me in. Q’s domme mode made her IRRISISTABLE. Now I’m a straight gal but DAMN Q made me question that. She is HOT like spicy jalapeños hot. I couldn’t believe how bothered (that’s a compliment =P ) I was reading the Q domme scenes. Jude…. Jude… Jude….. *horny groan* He has got to be the most delicious DOM ever. He has such a sexy swagger to him. YET he isn’t ALL DOM, he has a very sweet and cuddly side to him as well. The triad worked so well I was REALLY surprised. I enjoyed reading the emotions that each character went through and how the authors showed the emotions so clearly. The details in this book was awesome. They made me feel as if I could SEE the scene as if watching it on TV. I’m definitely HOOKED on this series….. Can’t wait to read Dom on the Naughty List (Badass Brats #2) HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES for a great storyline as well as the panty wetting factor.

The Dom on the Naughty List (Badass Brats, #2)
(Badass Brats Book 2)
 Book Blurb:
Who needs Christmas when it brings bad memories? Jude is hung up on his past but his bisexual brats Q and Sabrina are going to drag their normally good-natured Dom into the festive season even if they have to put him on the naughty list. But being in a ménage a trois isn't simple.

Family drama, unexpected consequences, and the sexy shenanigans all avalanche in with the snow to make Jude, Sabrina and Q find out exactly how deep their love goes.

This is a standalone Christmas novella that is a sequel to the Happily Ever After story of The Dom with a Safeword
Angie E's Review:
ANOTHER AMAZING STORY! This one was a little more emotional than the first. Again I felt myself pulled in by the details and the way the author makes me FEEL those emotions that the characters are dealing with. I will admit I was warned to grab tissues. I thought WHAT tissues in an erotica book? Well it has been done but I did not listen. SHE WAS RIGHT! I needed my box of Kleenex . This story was a shorter story but had all the emotion and love in it between the 3. It was filled with lots of HOTNESS (of course) and lots of love and laughter. The struggles that Sabrina dealt with is REAL LIFE issues that many people have to deal with in their life. I sympathized with Q *****SPOILER ALERT***** As a newly pregnant mommy I understand ALL the worries and YEP MOOD SWINGS. I really felt the connection with her and learning that she was pregnant.*****END SPOILER ALERT***** Jude is such a loving caring Dom. I definitely see why the 2 girls fell for him instantly. The relationship grows stronger in this book and makes me look forward to the future and seeing how the trio makes it through all life hands them. I will say my favorite part of this book was the Christmas party conversation between Q and Sabrina’s mother. I’m so excited for the next one “The Dom With The Perfect Brats (Badass Brats #3)” . Due out early Spring 2013.
Sharing the load, Sharing the blame – how 3 authors work together to make magic by Cari Silverwood, Sorcha Black, and Leia Shaw
Cari: People assume that writing with two other authors must be difficult and fraught with danger. If working with pets and children is bad, you must need Kevlar to work with authors. Although I agree in a way – authors do resemble both animals and children at certain times, mostly suffering from low caffeine blood-levels, I also would have to say that The Dom with a Safeword was great fun to write.
One of the joys I discovered was opening up the doc for the story and finding that the story had moved on without me. The quirks of the people we wrote slowly unfurled without me doing much at all. It was like opening a birthday present most days and added to the whole experience of writing. It helped a lot that we knew exactly who these people were that we were writing. We knew how they ticked and what they’d do when faced by different dilemmas.
I always have bumps and mind tangles that get in the way of me writing my stories but knowing that others needed me to do my part helped enormously. You don’t get writers block when you co-write. If you try to they throw something at you. Did we have arguments? For sure. Sometimes one of us would dig our toes in (mostly Leia lol) but generally it worked out fine.

Sorcha: For me, as an unpublished writer (and also new to the genre, as I usually write fantasy), working with two established authors was both nerve wracking and reassuring. It was nerve wracking because I knew that I had a lot to live up to. I didn’t want either of them to regret working with me, so the pressure was on. At first I was shy and a bit intimidated about speaking up for Q during plot discussions, but I quickly realized that her character arc was in my hands. If I didn’t speak for her, who would? On several occasions I had to save her from saying dorky things at the pens of my co-writers – and at one point even from sucking her thumb!
Being able to work with Leia and Cari was reassuring, though, because when it came to advice about my writing style, they were there for me with gently worded help. They also talked me down a few times when – in moments of frustration – I decided that maybe I should give up writing entirely. When it came time to publish, I had the luxury of watching and learning instead of trying to muddle through the process alone.
The best part of the entire experience was how much fun it was watching the book develop as well as getting to read chapters the other two wrote! I’d write a chapter and get two in return – a very satisfying arrangement. I was checking my chat and e-mail a million times a day, hoping for more book discussion and/or a new chapter.
As we get the sequel started, I’m looking forward to another wild ride!

Leia: Since I’m pasting this together, I get to defend myself from my co-author’s accusations. I am NOT the most stubborn and thumb sucking was NOT my idea.
There. Now that that’s out of the way, I’m going to take a different angle. Yes, it was fun and exciting to read what the others wrote, their take on the characters, etc. But since I’m pretty lazy, what I really liked was help plotting. Sometimes it was frustrating because we all had different ideas and we’re all pretty opinionated. I don’t know if you know this, but we authors like having control of our work and don’t always play well with others. But after we finished throwing writer tantrums, we figured out how to compromise. Sorcha and Cari have excellent ideas – sometimes even better than mine, if you can imagine that ;) And we all have opposing strengths and weaknesses. So together, we’re a complete package.
It was also nice having someone who understood the book and characters critiquing my work. I think I grew as an author, learning from two other authors who’s strengths balance my weaknesses. Everything just went faster. Writing, rewriting, editing. And it was so much fun the time moved quickly. I’m really glad I joined the project, even during the most frustrating parts, because it was worth it in the end. I believe in our book. I think it’s a fabulous combination of humor, emotional agony, heartwarming love, and super sexy, kinky romance.
