Lana: Hey hookers!
Brooke: I’m prepared. Lube, check. Condoms, check. Whipped cream, check.
Alleskelle: Hey Hookers! Good, Brooke, we only practice safe sex here.
Though you might need some other kind of toys to please Lana… (The hardcore stuff)
Geri: Yay! I’m ready when you are guys. Hi Brooke! We haven’t been properly introduced but I’m Geri and I’m the innocent one in the group. Shut it, Lana and Alex
Alleskelle: RIGHT. You lie whore! “Innocent.” Such a bad word in your mouth
Geri: LMAO! Nuh-uh. I’m a proper lady. ahem. Ladies in the front, party in the back
Brooke: Oh gawd. Don’t start with the miss innocent schtick, you’re the HOOKER LINE LADIES. Well, maybe not ladies 😉
Alleskelle: Geri, do I need to remind you? YOU started the anal talk last time and blamed it all on Lana. (Though I understand the logic in this)
Lana: LMFAO!!!!!!! I leave for two seconds and it’s already “lube” and “Lana is a whore”
I see it’s regularly scheduled programming here.
Alleskelle: We’re perfectly respectable Ladies still, Brooke. Well maybe not Lana.
Brooke: I know the truth about Lana.
Lana: I already warned Brooke I’ll be throwing out random pervy ice cream names for her
Like Cockies and Cream. Make it happen!
Brooke: Yes! I need some dirty names
Geri: Hmm, love the sound of that. Hahaha
Brooke: Oh is that the best you can do? I expected more from you, perv. I told you I brought the lube right?
Lana: I’m just warming up here
Alleskelle: How did you came up with the hilarious names in Licked, Brooke?
Lana: Yes. Do tell. Inquiring hookers want to know!
Brooke: Quite literally pulled them out of my ass. Like anal beads.
Lana: You dirty bird. No wonder I like you! LOL
Alleskelle: OMG. We’re being Out-Hookered here! She plays hard
Geri: We need to step up our game. I haven’t read it but just so you know I don’t mind spoilers
Brooke: What? I should go back to my trailer. You didn’t bring me green m&m’s, you didn’t read my book. This is bullshit.
Geri: LMAO! I sorry?
Lana: You’re missing out, woman! I keep telling you
Alleskelle: Geri you have to read it, I mean are you not curious about what a Cookie Dildough is? The Up the Butt-er Pecan is my fave.
Geri: They’re supposed to be convincing me but the blurb sounds like a triangle. For all those pervy readers like me who don’t like Love Triangles, should we be worried?
Alleskelle: I don’t like love triangles either and it worked for me, Geri.
Lana: Me too! And I hate LT with the fire of the worst kind of venereal disease. #TrueStory
Alleskelle: Lol Lana. You said you were game for everything, you hardcore perv!
Geri, rest assured, while the heroine does have 2 love interest after her, the set up is pretty
clear about who she’s going to end up with
Lana: YES! And she wasn’t the wishy washy whore that led men on because she felt bad
Brooke: Noooooooo! I promise I just did that to scare you. I mean we all loved the Dylan-Brenda-Kelly love triangle in 90210, LET’S BE REAL.
Lana: Brooke, for hookers like Geri here that have been living under a rock, can you introduce your L.A. Liaisons series?
Geri: Yes, please. Lol!
Brooke: Okay, so L.A. Liaisons stars our quirky heroine, Ryleigh, who at the beginning of the story has a nice little run-in *cough cough* with her high school crush. And yeah, then she meets high school crush’s bff/roommate and all bets are off, BUT I promise Licked is more of a rom-com that makes your heart melt. It doesn’t require tums.
Geri: Ah glad to hear that. You said the magic word. Rom-com
Alleskelle: Oh yes, it’s a great Rom-com and I loved the premise, old school crush finally seeing HER.
Lana: Gotta say, I loved the way they see each other again (uhem) … while NAKED
Brooke: Right? All about the cock run-ins
Lana: Best EVAH
Brooke: Aw spanks. I mean it’s how I’d love to run into my high school crush
Geri: Plus you said the word naked… Naked romcoms !
Brooke: Unless he had a teeny weenie, in which case… Maybe not
Geri: LMAO!
Alleskelle: In which case you’d know you would have pined for him all for nothing… awww
Brooke: ~fantasies dashed~
Geri: Sadly, my high school crush… Yeah not going there.
Brooke: Wait, what if we wanna go there?
Lana: Yeah…I kinda do lol
Alleskelle: Oooh, high school crushes… I used to draw a blank about them. But a few weeks ago we were talking with Geri and she mentioned stalking her exes on social media. 😯
Geri: Are we going to talk about high school crushes? Hahahaha! Thank God, my husband doesn’t read my blog.
Brooke: I’m so curious now
Lana: Mine was a douchebag. End of story. Hmm…I wonder if there’s any correlation to me loving the alphaholes in my books? *scratches chin* Ha! Is that where the inspiration for Ryleigh came from?
Geri: I’m interested if Brooke has an inspiration for this. Oh yeah. That’s what I’m asking Lana. I’m curious!
Brooke: You know what? I blossomed after high school, so when my crushes saw me years later, they were ALL ABOUT IT. That denied stamp felt good. A bit. I had an awkward high school experience. I was a theater kid and everyone thought I was shy and quiet…”the nice girl.” I went to church a lot.
Lana: From what I recall she didn’t come into her own skin till after high school. Shy AND quiet? Boy did they get that one wrong, huh?
Brooke: And, like I said, I didn’t come into my own until college. So like Ryleigh in that way. Dude you’re not kidding, I guess I was kind of that way. I don’t know what happened. Someone must’ve scandalized me.
Geri: I went through this phase too Brooke so I can relate.
Alleskelle: I was part of the quiet solitary ones too. Well I mostly used to hang out with the guys.
Lana: I was the same way. Would you believe I was the quiet girl that everyone thought was a bitch because I rarely talked then senior year happened and BAM !
Alleskelle: It’s kind of the best reward. Just like what happens to Ryleigh in Licked. Never part of the “cool” kids, (but truly she was) and being brushed off by the guys at school, only to rub it in their faces later.
Brooke: Hell yes, Alex! No way, people thought Lana was a bitch? Shocking. Utterly shocking. 😉 Geri, would you say you’re a 180 now of who you were back then?
Geri: Not really. I’d say I was already who I am but I wasn’t as comfortable in my skin back then. So I kept my mouth shut. Didn’t rock the boat much. But in my head…oh boy!
Alleskelle: It is TRUE what they say about the quiet girls. Or at least they are as freaks as the slutty ones. Lol
Brooke: NO ONE would guess I write erotica sometimes. I kind of wish I could blast out that info. Maybe I will. Do you guys still find that if you see people from high school that the awkward girl from then comes back?
Lana: Not really. I became an opinionated smart ass. I dunno how to shut that off! LMAO
Alleskelle: Why would you want to shut it off? And yes, the awkward still comes through depending who I’m talking to.
Brooke: Yeah, don’t shut that off or you can’t sit with us.
Geri: On Wednesdays we wear pink.
Brooke: LOL! Geri, I’ve seen what you read, so that sounds about right 😉
Geri: Sometimes. Right? Hahaha
Lana: And I was always a closet perv… le sigh
Alleskelle: *closet* LMAO!
Geri: No secret there
Brooke: Your husband must be a happy man, Lana
Lana: He’s worse than me, Brooke…so I dunno. We try to outsmart ass each other, keeps it lively.
Lana: Now back to business, let’s talk about your upcoming book, because….HOOKER! DUDE. Can I just say I LOVE that title?
Brooke: Hell yes! You like the name, no?
Lana: Fitting. I was all, she wrote a book about ME?! LMAO!
Geri: We all do!
Alleskelle: The name is PERFECT! Verra fitting
Brooke: Well, I’ve called my friends that for years, so…It totally fits. Plus she’s a matchmaker, not a LITERAL hooker, so… there’s that
Geri: Shut it! I love matchmaker stories! It’s my catnip. Well one of…
Brooke: Oooh maybe Geri will read this one… Someone tie her down and make her
Geri: I already promised these hookers I will read Licked. Or else
Lana: She HAS to read the first one It sets up the second one
Brooke: So Hooker is a standalone, which means you don’t HAVE to read Licked, but YOU FUCKING SHOULD…
Lana: Totally fucking should
Alleskelle: You definitely should! Hunter was really dreamy. Sexy. Rough… and gah, just read it already!
Brooke: Mmmm I love Hunter…And it centers on the Aussie transplant in the bunch, the fabulous Shayne Callahan whose boss is a psycho from hell. She’s fabulous to write. I kind of want a Val book honestly. She’s so much fun to write. It’s like I can turn off my filter completely and just say the most horrible stuff. It’s fantastic.
Lana: I loved Shayne!
Brooke: But I’m loving Shayne’s guy now too… You like guys in suspenders, right?
Alleskelle: Only in suspenders?
Geri: Hahahaha! You read my mind Alex! (I’m going to Amazon, talk amongst yourselves, kids)
Brooke: Well they have to attach to SOMETHING
Alleskelle: …to socks? ^^

Alleskelle: I had wished we’ll get more Quinn first but… Shayne will do. lol
Lana: Quinn is the mysterious Ukrainian
Brooke: Omg you’re on the Quinn train too? You sound like Lana
Alleskelle: I LOVED Quinn. Huge girl crush. And Lana is only projecting because she’s east european too.
Lana: I bet that Hooker is a spy or something
Brooke: Quinn is coming last out of the foursome because YOU ALL WANT IT AND I’M AN ASSHOLE. You’re welcome.
Lana: You whore! Teasing whore! I knew you’d do that!
Brooke: Geri went quiet, I think she really did go to Amazon. #peerpressurerocks
Alleskelle: Ok, no Quinn. Who wants that hooker anyway? (I’m trying the reverse psychology method here)
Geri: Ha! Too late Alex
Brooke: You know what…it’s Ella Frank’s fault.
Lana: WHAT?!!!
Alleskelle: Why? What did she do?
Brooke: She told me to make the person everyone wanted be last. And I thought it would be Paige that people wanted.
But nope. You guys said Quinn. So I switched it
Alleskelle: Nooooo! I hate Ella Frank all of sudden. Authors are really EVIL
Brooke: MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA Lana: I totally want Paige. I lied! Lied I tells ya! (is it working?)
Alleskelle: (I think not)
Brooke: Well, I can’t really make you cry with these books, so I have to do SOMETHING to piss you off.
Lana: Bah. Well back to Hooker, tell us more ! like….is there a meet cute? There has to be a meet cute?
Brooke: Hmm what can I say… oh i LOVE LOVE LOVE their meet cute
Lana: Is anyone going to be naked during that? (Cause they totally should)
Brooke: More than Ryleigh and Hunter’s maybe… And um… yes, there is a degree of nakedness.
Lana: How large a degree? On a scale from one to peen? I like these naked meeting ‘nice to peen you.’
Geri: On a scale of one to Tom Hardy, how naked?
Alleskelle: Another naked meeting? Like it’s going to be a regular occurrence for them all? (Please say yes.)
Brooke: Bahahaaa! Wait is that implying Tom Hardy is always naked? I promise not all meet cutes will be naked ones.
Geri: Did you guys see that? Woman, did you not see his latest video?
Lana: There’s Tom Hardy peen? Your hooker ass has been holding out on me!
Alleskelle: Lana wake the fuck up. There IS. It’s all over my FB feed.
I saw the blurry version, Geri. Now, do YOU have a link to the REAL thing? Because that would
prove your innocent bullshiting.
Brooke: Wait, what? Why are you holding out on us??
Geri: LMAO! I plead the fifth
Alleskelle: You should just plead guilty, you perv! She hides behind that sweet librarian look. But we know better.
Brooke: Okay, Geri is the tease in the group, that much is blatantly obvious. The glasses don’t fool us. If I google Tom Hardy’s cock, and I get a virus on my computer and it destroys my Hooker manuscript…well, you guys will help me hide Geri’s body, right?
Lana: What’s a hooker for? Of course! But clearly we got distracted again. What else can you tell us about her love interest? I’m desperate here!
Brooke: Oh, sorry sorry! Okay, here’s another bit for you: Shayne *may* be rockin’ the cradle in this book slightly 😉 You don’t mind younger guys, right?
Alleskelle: How much younger? How old is Shayne again?
Brooke: Not much. Within five years-ish. She’s 28? 29? 28? Shit, don’t ask me hard questions
I don’t mind the age gap. Even if it’s reversed. Like older woman, younger guy
Alleskelle: Meh, that’s nothing
Geri: It’s a math question too. Don’t scare off our guest
Lana: 5 years I can handle. Anything over 15 makes me a tad uncomfortable tho. Don’t ask me why.
Alleskelle: Lana the more and more you talk, the more I discover even YOU have hard limits. I is shocked. So he is 22-ish and he wears suspenders.
Brooke: Yeah, he has to be above the drinking limit. I couldn’t handle it if he couldn’t go to a bar.
Geri: Yes. What would they do?
Brooke: Exactly, Geri. What do you do with someone under twenty-one? Go play miniature golf or something?
Geri: So not J-Lo’s Casper Smart level, Right?
Brooke: Okay stop it. Casper is so not cute. Wtf is going on there. That was my favorite movie growing up. I even had Casper soap.
Lana: How did we get on the subject of Casper here?
Geri: Because that’s how I scale now. Like from 1 to Jlo-Casper Smart
Alleskelle: I think Geri was talking about J-Lo’s boyfriend or something
Brooke: Well, I turned it to the ghost because he’s way more adorable than Casper Smart
if that’s really his name
Lana: I was thinking of the friendly ghost variety. Clearly I’m not on the up and up with celebrity gossip
Brooke: Lana – celebrity gossip plays a huge part in Hooker. And that’s all I can tell you about that.
Alleskelle: What else? Come on, spill!
Brooke: Dimples.
Alleskelle: Tell me he has at least a mild kink. Like nice guy but freak in the bedroom. *Dreamy eyes*
Brooke: I can’t give you all my secrets, woman!!
Alleskelle: Ooooh, did I put my finger on it??? He’s a freak! Yes!
So her man is a celebrity? 22-ish celebrity wearing suspenders with a bedroom kink
*with dimples
Brooke: Nope, I didn’t say that
Alleskelle: (I’m drawing my own conclusions) lol
Brooke: Bahahaha! I’ll let you believe what you want 😉 Don’t you love surprises?
Alleskelle: I do love surprises but I’m such a greedy Hooker…
Brooke: Greedy two-dollar hooker shake! I like that one… ~writes it down~
Geri: So Hooker will be the second book. Will it then be a four book series?
Brooke: Yep, there are four fabulously foul-mouthed bff’s and each will get a turn
Geri: I’m imagining Henry Cavill in suspenders
Brooke: The Henry Cavill lookalike is in my next book 😉
Lana: WHAT?!!!!!!! *dies*
Alleskelle: Shhhhut up!
Geri: Ooohhh!
Alleskelle: Can we have the next one before this one?
Geri: This is bargaining at its finest LOL!
Brooke: You know what…I was going back and forth about that . I’m hoping to have it out pretty soon after Hooker. With the most GORGEOUS FUCKING MODEL ON THE PLANET on the front. But it’ll be a standalone. If I’m feeling fun and flirty, romantic comedy comes out.
Alleskelle: Now this cover I have to see
Geri: I love rom-coms. They’re my crack. Jennifer Crusie started me on it.
Brooke: I’m just leaving you breadcrumbs so you keep coming for more
Alleskelle: You’re such a tease.
Lana: I gotta admit, I loved your Romantic Suspense too. Reading with a visual of Jason Statham is nothing to complain about
Brooke: Thank you! You know, I would love to go back and visit Kirkpatrick from Flash Point one of these days, but it only makes sense if there’s a demand for it. But suspense was a lot of fun.
Alleskelle: Jason Statham does nothing for me…
Geri: Same.
Lana: Who ARE YOU?! Leave right now. Get out! Both of you!
Brooke: Whaaaat? Not even when he’s kicking like twelve guys asses at the same time?
Lana: Want to lick that man, neck to cock. Swear to God.
Alleskelle: He looks like an old man already
Lana: No. (la la la la) I can’t hear you
Brooke: Omg. I have to leave this conversation before I cut a bitch. and I’m tall enough to step on you guys, so…
Lana: Right? I’ll hold them down for you, Brooke. Crazy Whores! I may be small, but I’m scrappy. Watch yourself!
Brooke: Thank you, Lana. Teamwork
Alleskelle: LMAO, pussy you’ll hide behind her that’s what you meant. Geri you stick by me, we’ll stand proud
Geri: Two on two! Hahahaha! I’m dying.
Alleskelle: Are we really fighting over Jason fucking Statham?
Geri: LOL! Looks like.
Lana: Do NOT insult my husband, you whore!
Alleskelle: Would you rather I say he is mine? Brooke we’re usually fighting over who keeps whom.
Brooke: It’s not about Jason Statham! Okay it is.
Lana: It totally is.
Brooke: This is kind of a deal-breaker. The Hooker Line is about to split apart before it even gets started omg.


Lana: We digressed….again. Can we get back to business here?
Brooke: Sorry sorry, it’s Alex’s fault I think. I’m just gonna point fingers over here
Lana: It’s always Alex’s fault
Geri: *glares at Alex
Alleskelle: How is it it’s always the French’s fault? Way to turn up your vest Geri. You were on my side 2 seconds ago.
Lana: *add a stink eye to the glare* judging youuuuu
Alleskelle: Geri said she didn’t like your bald man too. Right Geri? I’m just saying.
Lana: You shut your whore mouth, dammit! We’re detouring again! quit that! This is going to be the longest interview ever…*claps hands* children, children, concentrate !
Brooke: Ohhhh we’re in trouble. She might spank us
Alleskelle: Yes, Mistress Lana. (I think she’s giving me some Domme vibes)
Brooke: She does seem the type, doesn’t she?
Lana: I will and you will not enjoy it. I’ll dole out the punishment Russian style!
Geri: Okay. Let me just say that I love that your covers have the heroines or the representation of the heroine on them. Usually, it’s always the hero but yours, it stands out. As much as I love the nekkid, seeing a woman in a cover is refreshing and a very welcome change.
Brooke: I like covers that when you look at them, you can tell what’s on the inside. I love seeing women on covers. I hate that it all has to be naked guy, naked guy.
Alleskelle: Too much naked guys
Lana: And I hate when the cover model doesn’t match the actual character. Pet peeve.
Alleskelle: So, we have Shayne’s story coming up March 9th, and then Paige’s story? And Quinn’s last?
Brooke: Yep, Shayne is up next, then I’ll pop out a standalone, and then it’s Paige’s turn.
And omg…hers I can’t WAIT to write. I’m dying.
-I HATE THAT TOO LANA, when it doesn’t match the character inside
Geri: What’s you favorite part about writing this series?
Brooke: Geri, Omg, the girls. I fucking love the girls. So much of them is taken from all the friends I’ve made over the years, and I just love writing them so much.
Alleskelle: I love the banter you have on between the girls in Licked. And the heroine? I swear it was like hearing Lana talking to me! It was really strange
Brooke: Ahahaha! I love that you can relate!
Geri: I love books that showcases women relationships
Brooke: That’s really the heart of the story. Friendships are so important, to me more so than the romance.
Honestly, I could write about them without the men and be so happy with it. That’s not done enough,
celebrating women.
Alleskelle: Hookers first !
Brooke: Holding each other up instead of tearing each other down. Did you guys fall asleep?
Do i need to tell a dick joke?
Geri: It’s great to show that especially in romance where there’s this divide between the heroine and the supposed girls who wants to steal her man. I hate that in books now more than ever.
Lana: Dick joke? *perks up ears*
Alleskelle: Lol, I’m always up for dick
Brooke: LOL
Lana: But about the women, it’s so true. You don’t read enough about this. It’s always back stabbing and jealousy. You don’t get true genuine friendships, or it’s VERY rare. So it’s super refreshing.
Brooke: Well, it’s just catty. I want these books to feel like coming back home in a sense. Like the girls are your family.
Lana: It totally has that vibe.
Geri: I’m a sucker for books like that.
Alleskelle: Can you tell us more about your standalone?
Brooke: What I’ll tell you is that I’m digging a bit deeper for this next one. I love romcom and I loved the suspense, but I sort of back off from being too vulnerable in my books. I’m that way in real life too, and I just feel that need to sort of let things out. Does that make sense? Keep you salivating and all that 😉
Alleskelle: You have me curious now. Stalking mode activated. Might even set up a folder for you on the computer. Muahaha!
Brooke: – Oooh I get my own folder? That’s hot… Should I send nekkid pics? Or not that kind of stalking…
Lana: So what would we like to close with? Before this spans into another hour. LOL
Brooke: LOL! Thanks for having me, Hookers. Mouthy bitches, but i dig it 😉
Alleskelle: I think we were relatively sweet today. I for one, behaved.
(not directing this at anyone in particular)
Brooke: Why, are you sick? Feeling shy?
Geri: Your nose, Alex.
Alleskelle: My nose is perfectly sized today Geri, thank you.

Lana: What would you like to close with, Brooke? A pervy joke? A little fun fact A little fun pervy fact?
Geri: A knock knock pervy joke.
Alleskelle: I really feel you out-Hookered us, we have a lot to learn still. Baby Hookers here.
Brooke: Aww, that’s a pretty high compliment. Omg that’s so putting me on the spot. I’m so bad with jokes. Um hmmm.
Lana: Pervy fact about the hero then? pweeease?
Brooke: Why you gotta make him pervy. Poor guy, he’s getting a complex!
Alleskelle: Because I sense he’s going to be a perv
Brooke: You’ll see those suspenders back in action I’ll say 😉 But he won’t be wearing them
Alleskelle: Ah, now you’re talking! I knew he would be kinky! Bondage!!!
Geri: Hey, suspenders can be used as cuffs
Lana: *mind spins off into dark places* LOL
Geri: So he’s basically a McGyver in the bedroom then?
Brooke: Now you’re off to Pinterest hot suspenders guys with Dimples. oh wait, I could show you one. Well this is Nate…real life name, also Nate.


Lana: OMG I love him. He’s on my Pinterest. He’s yummy
Brooke: Lana I think every hot guy in the world is on your Pinterst. I can never spell that word
Can you do mine? Just send hot guys my way and put ’em on the Nate board. k thanks
Alleskelle: Lana has hidden boards. You haven’t seen nothing yet.
Lana: Heeee. I’m a Pinterest peen ninja.
Brooke: Ooohhhhh let’s talk about THAT next time… Thank you hookers so much for having me!
Alleskelle: Thank you, Master Hooker! (High praise, usually Lana is the Master Hooker)
Brooke: Oooh, Master Hooker! Love it. Do u guys bow down on your knees?
Alleskelle: lol! depends on the occasion, Brooke
Brooke: 😉 Well, thank you! Air kisses and all that
Geri: *Tom Hardy’s peen*
Alleskelle: Love how you finish the convo with dick pics Geri. In style. Classy
Lana: only way we know how. Tom Hardy peen FTW
Geri: Here’s Tom HARD-y. See what i did there?
Brooke: Always a good convo when it ends with cock!
