Here at Pen and Kink we understand that you would much rather hear from our authors than from us, so we invited the contributors to Legendary to stop by and write a guest post for our blog.
Today we’re hosting Sara Dobie Bauer — which is only appropriate since she hosted our Facebook launch party (there’s still time to scoot over there and enter to win loads of prizes if you’re quick!).
The Sensual, Scary Soundtrack for “Not Again”
By Sara Dobie Bauer
“Not Again” is a horror-romance between two men: Rob (a gorgeous ballet dancer) and Colin (a sex-starved journalism student who’s been obsessing over Rob for ages). Oh, and there’s the whole matter of Rob’s jealous ex-boyfriend, and, like, murder and stuff.
The tone of the tale is twisted, bloody humor—my favorite kind—but there’s also a lot of sensuality when two strong male libidos explode in a small, heated space. Therefore, each song I chose to mimic the overall feeling of “Not Again” has a certain amount of dancer beat, a whole lot of bringin’ sexy back, and a touch of the off-putting … plus a shout out to Rob’s ballet roots, of course.
Yes, this is my auditory interpretation of “Not Again,” but I’m not gonna lie: most of these songs are good for getting you in the naughty mood, no matter if you’re being chased by a crazed killer up the Pacific Coast.
1. “Before I Ever Met You” by Banks
Before I ever met you, I never knew that I liked to be kissed for days
Before I ever met you, I never knew I could be broken in so many ways
2. “Out of the Fire” by Digital Daggers
Hold me down
Bring me peace again
Hold me under
Take me with you to the bitter end
3. “Sick Like Me” by In This Moment
Is it sick of me
To want you crawling on your knees?
Is it sick to say
I want you biting down on me
4. “Swan Lake Dubstep Remix” by the San Jose Ballet
And then out of the darkness …
5. “Do I Wanna Know?” by Arctic Monkeys
I’m sorry to interrupt, it’s just I’m constantly
On the cusp of trying to kiss you
I don’t know if you feel the same as I do
But we could be together, if you wanted to
6. “The Killing Type” by Amanda Palmer
I’m not the killing type
I’m not, I’m not
I’m not the killing type, I’m not
But I would kill to make you feel
7. “#1 Crush” by Garbage
I would die for you
I would die for you
I’ve been dying just to feel you by my side
To know that you’re mine
8. “Angel” by Massive Attack
You are my angel
Come from way above
To bring me love
9. “Pretty When You Cry” by VAST
You’re made of my rib or baby
You’re made of my sin
And I can’t tell where
Your lust ends
And where your love begins
