ML Steinbrunn Edition: Dare to Tell the Truth with Kayla the Bibliophile

Let’s start with a little foreplay…
What would you say is the most embarrassing thing you have done or had done to you?

Wow, I’m the clumsiest, foot-in-mouth adult that has ever hit this planet, so this is difficult to narrow it down. The most far reaching is probably when I was delivering my high school valedictorian speech. I lost my place, got flustered, and started hysterically laughing. Then to make it worse, I get waaaaay to close to the microphone and announce to the auditorium, “My bad.” Yeah, I looked super smart; I did wonders for the reputation of our youth. 
Craziest Fan moment?

I haven’t had one yet.
Pick one!

Favorite book and/or author?

 I love everything Jane Austen. My favorite is Pride and Prejudice.
Import or Muscle car?

Muscle car, no question.
Favorite song and/or musician?

I have a very eclectic taste in music. My I-pod is seriously bi-polar and I change favorite songs like I change underwear. However, a musician that I can always jam out to is Janis Joplin. She was such a cool rocker chick…gotta love some Bobby McGee.
White, Dark or Milk Chocolate?

Ummm, just chocolate. I will eat any of it. It must remain hidden from me at all times, no matter the flavor, or it will be decimated.
Sam or Dean Winchester?

Commando, Boxers or Briefs?

Option D. I prefer boxer briefs.
Damon or Stephan Salvatore?

Wine or Mixed drink?

Can I alternate?
Coke or Pepsi?

Dr. Pepper
Biker boy or Rocker dude?

Rockers…I prefer drummers and guitarist though.
Do you believe in vampires?

Interview with a Vampire made me desperately want to believe Brad Pitt was in search of snack only I could provide. 
If you could have a super power what power would you pick?

I would want to have magical powers and attend Hogwarts. However, I want to be able to use my powers around muggles.  
What would you do with your super power if you had it?

I would make sure I had all of the chocolate I ever wanted but I would never gain any weight. Also,  I want a trunk filled with invisibility cloaks so I could spy on other people…ultimate people watching.
Would you abuse your super power? How?

I’m sure I would get into some kind of trouble and be booted out of the school of witchcraft and wizardry.
Enough foreplay, let’s get it on!

Tell us about your 1st time!
I had just turned seventeen and I was getting ready to start my senior year. I didn’t want to go to college as a virgin, so my sexual clock was ticking, I guess you would say. I really liked the guy even though we had only met a few weeks before and we actually ended up dating for a year after and went to college together. (We broke up as soon as we got there though…way to go me lol) His parents were out of town and we took advantage of their house. It was nice, not the horror story you read about or hear that others have had.

Screamer, moaner or silent?
Depends on how good he’s doing.

Whips or chains?

What is your favorite alcoholic beverage?
Margaritas with extra salt are my favorite. However, I’m a major light weight. I once had to be helped out of the booth and to the car at Bennigans after only one.

Do you ever leave home without panties on?
I’m a big opponent of undies. I never wear them with yoga pants no matter where I’m going and they are the first things to go when I get home every day, if I had to wear them.

Have you ever had sex while at work (any job)? If so, where?

What is the strangest place you ever had sex?

In the bed of a pickup in the middle of a pasture, which wasn’t so bad until the police showed up. 
What turns you on more, reading a sexual story, watching a porn or listening to sex?

While I love my naughty books, I have to admit I’m more of a guy in this regard. Pornhub and spankwire are bookmarked on my pornpad.
What profession do you find the most arousing sexually?

I love men in suits and military officers.
Does size matter?

I’ve had samplings from the spectrum, and as much as I want to be nice to the opposite gender about this topic, yes, size matters. If you happen to be lacking in the area, my best suggestion is to bone up on other skills to compensate, and I don’t mean buy an imported car.
Do you or have you ever had a “cop” fantasy?

My husband is a police officer, so I better say yes.
Do you or have you ever had a “Delivery Guy” or “Service Man” fantasy?

No, but I love men in military uniforms.
If you were on a bus and got a glimpse up a pantiless girl’s skirt would you keep looking?

After I laugh/snorted and took another peek I would probably share the news with the person riding with me so that they can peek and laugh.
What is the strangest sexual experience you’ve had?

So the next few questions, I’ll have to refer to college (pre-husband days) because I’ve been with my husband since my freshman year of college.
Let’s just say it’s never good when you need your friends to fill in the blanks of the evening before when you’ve too much alcohol.

Funniest sexual experience you've ever had?
I went on a date with a guy who had a horrible under bite and lisp. We went to see Austin Powers at the theater and then just hung out afterward. He was trying to be smooth and asked if we could get our mojo on. I couldn’t help but laugh and I told him I need to get going. It was our first and last date.

Most embarrassing sexual experience?
My husband’s college roommate walked in on us, lights on, ass in air. He is the shiest, quietest guy in the world! He tells us, “I guess you opened an early Easter present.” It was pretty hard walking out of that room afterward.

Also, the mentioning of police in a previous question, yeah that was pretty embarrassing.
Dominant or Submissive?

A fantasy you haven't fulfilled yet?

I haven’t had a romp in the ocean. As long as the jellyfish didn’t want to partake, I would think it would be a good time. Other than that, of course I want to be swept away by some terribly attractive, suave billionaire who wants to spoil me rotten and fulfill every one of my desires on a whim.  
Your stand on sex toys?

Stand, sit, whatever you need to do to enjoy those little devils.

Siiiigh, that was fantastic…how about some pillow talk?

What would you do if you could be a guy for a day?
I would spend a lot of time rubbing my balls. They seem to be every man’s worry stones and I would want to fit in with the pack.

How would you describe yourself so that someone could pick you out?
I’m extremely short, petite with hair (the color and length change regularly). I’m very shy in public situations and when first meeting someone. However, once I’m comfortable, it’s like a light switch goes off. I become bubbly with a smartass comment for everything…but in a nice way.

What's the last thought in your head that involved someone you like?
Did that really just happen?

What is a question you want me to ask you?
Jammies, lingerie, or nude?

What is a question you refuse to answer?
I haven’t come across something that I wouldn’t answer, at least depending on whose asking. 

Any tats or piercings? If so, where?
Four tattoos (wrist, stomach, back, and the area in between my arch and ankle). No piercings. I pierced my bellybutton once and it actually pushed its way out until it fell out!! So I avoid piercings.

Biggest turn on?
Confidence and humor

Biggest turn off?
Poor hygiene

Pet peeve?
Disorganization and lack of follow through really bothers me. I’m very type A. 

So tell us something nobody knows about you?
I’ve been with my husband since I was 18…the man knows everything about me. I don’t have any secrets, so he has ruined the question.

What did you think while reading these questions?
I laughed a lot. These are certainly thing I would want to know about other people because I’m nosy.

Thank you for answering my naughty questions. Was it as good for you as it was for me?
Did you have anything else you’d like to say before we go?

I appreciate you taking an interest in me and sharing my book. This interview was awesome!
How long would you wait to be with the one that you love? How much of yourself would you hide in order to keep them?

Brooks knows the moment he meets Vivian that he will do whatever it takes to protect her, even if it means leaving her. Running from his past, he spends the next decade trying to forget the shattered heart that he left behind.

Is there any betrayal worth the cost? Are there some sins that cannot be forgiven?

After a lifetime of rebuilding the walls guarding her heart, Vivian confronts the harsh reality that some fortresses are not meant to stand. Winding through a gray fog of disappointment and deceit, she must conquer her deepest fears to accept the love she believes she is too unworthy to have.

As the paths of these two battered hearts cross once more, together they seek redemption for their sins. However, when the secrets of their pasts come knocking on their door, forgiveness and love will be tested, and they will be forced to answer the question: “When the lies run out, will the truth finally set you free?”
