Guest Post & Giveaway with Piper Vaughn & Xara Xanakas

~I am excited to have Xara and Piper on the blog today and they brought an awesome giveaway. I loved the crap out of The Party Boy's Guide To Dating Geek so please do comment for your chance to win. I guarantee you will love it too. Check out my review to find out how much I love the book.~

Boxers or briefs? Commando? What do you like to see when someone drops their pants?

Piper and I like to see the unexpected. Tighty-whities are a dime a dozen, and there's nothing wrong with that. But give us the Bat-Signal. Flash’s lightning bolt. Tony Stark's arc reactor. The "Wam!" and "Pow!" of a comic book.

While they may seem childish, we love seeing brightly colored underoos stretched across a hot guy's ass. Okay, that may be a bit TMI. But come on, sex is supposed to be fun. And thinking of someone's reaction when they see your inner superhero under your fly makes you feel sexy. Lingerie stores thrive on the inner goddesses and barely hidden fantasies of people. But why limit that to satin and lace?

Admit it—when browsing through the pantheon of panty pictures, when Superman’s “S” peeks out from behind a zipper, you stop. Even in the sea of vibrant briefs and plaid boxers, it’s the covert identities and comic strips that call your attention. The guys wearing them seem to project an attitude that draws you in. The smoldering smolderers and the sulking sulkers sulking sexily at the camera don’t have anything on the happy, confident nerds sporting their secret superhero selves. They know life’s a joke, but they’re in on it, laughing along with you.

Maybe that’s what calls to me. It isn’t the clothes that make the man, it’s the man that makes the clothes. Sexy starts there, and everything else is (brightly colored) icing on the mancake. Honestly, the sexiest thing a man can wear is a smile. Engage my intellect (what there is of it), tug on my heartstrings (icy as they sometimes are), but above all, make me laugh, and you’ll own me for life.

To celebrate our upcoming release, which features a pair of hot guys with a mutual love for underoos, we’re giving away not only a copy of the ebook to one lucky commenter, but also a key bracelet (pictured below), which we’re willing to ship internationally. For now, we’re keeping mum on the significance of the bracelet, but once you read the book, you’ll find out. :)

 Be sure to leave a comment if you want a chance at both the ebook and the bracelet! And thanks again to DarienMoya for having us on the blog today! :D

Pretty Bracelet!


Ashley Byrne only wants one thing in life: to finish his tattoo apprenticeship and fulfill his dream of owning his own shop. In the meantime, he spends his nights partying, flirting, and having sex. After all, what else is there for him to worry about? Aside from his hair and his clothes, not much. He’s hot, and rest assured no one knows it better than him. He’s also used to getting what he wants—until he meets Felipe Navarro.

Fee Navarro has everything he needs: a great IT job, a nice apartment, and all the high-tech toys his geeky heart could ever want. He doesn’t do casual, and he knows guys like Ash are nothing but. Ash may burn hot for Fee, but Fee isn’t willing to take a chance on a vain, little party boy with too many tats and an oversized ego. He wants someone to share his life with, and he won’t settle for anything less. Too bad Ash has never been the type to give up easily. He has a plan, and he’s not stopping until he proves he’s more than just a pretty face—he’s someone worthy of winning Fee’s heart.

  1. This one does look fun :) And I'm very curious about the bracelet now...however over-budget on books for the mo so I guess patience had better become one of my virtues! (Although it's never worked out that way before!)

  2. I'm a fan of Piper's books and of opposite attracts stories, but am new to Xara's books. The bracelet is really nice. I've had my eye on this book since I heard about it.
