Samanthe stops by with a fantastic TOP FIVE list of “Interrupted Intimacy” moments:

Hi Jillian, thanks for having me back at Read-Love-Blog to talk about my new Brazen release, “Falling for the Marine”!

I had so much fun writing this story, dreaming up wild, naughty situations for straight-shooting USMC Major Michael McCade and free-spirited massage therapist Chloe Kincaid to land in. One of my favorites had terrible consequences for Chloe, I’m sad to report. When her sexy neighbor Michael shows up at her clinic as a client in need of relief from lower back pain, the massage goes from therapeutic to…ahem…well, let’s just say they’re well on their way to a happy ending when her boss walks in! Oh yeah. She’s fired.

I came to learn there’s a whole trope for this type of situation, called “Interrupted Intimacy,” and it frequently shows up in comedy films, along with two recognizable sub-tropes, “Parents Walk in at the Worst Times,” and “Caught with your Pants Down” (for a solo act). I got to thinking, what are the most epic moments of “Interrupted Intimacy”? This called for a Top Five list, and a glass of wine (okay, two glasses of wine, sticklers). Here’s what I came up with:

5.              “Mean Girls” – Regina, (Rachel McAdams as the girl you love to hate), is making out with her new boyfriend when her stepmother, (played by the always hysterical Amy Poehler), comes in and asks “Do you guys need anything? Some snacks? A condom? Well, let me know!” I wish I could find a clip to link to, but I couldn’t. L

4.              “Friends with Benefits” – Jamie (Mila Kunis) and Dylan (Justin Timberlake) are exploring some of those friendly bennies when Jamie’s mom (Patricia Clarkson) walks in. They’re completely freaked. Mom, not so much. “Whoo, it’s like the seventies in here. I’m starving, got any gin?” J


3.              “American Pie 2” – Jim’s dad, (Eugene Levy, who I can’t even look at without laughing), walks in on Jim, (Jason Biggs, who I can’t even look at without cringing), having sex. Then comes Jim’s mom. Then the girl’s parents, and then… “Oh, you must be the parents of this young lady…I’m sorry, I didn’t get her name, but hopefully my son did.”


2.              “Four Weddings and a Funeral” – David, (Hugh Grant) attempts to escape the reception table from hell, and ducks into an empty room for a quiet, reflective moment. The bride and groom arrive next, and, not realizing they’re not alone, promptly go at it…marathon-style. David is stuck crouching on a desk, hiding. Finally, he can’t take it anymore and jumps down. When the surprised newlyweds gape at him, he grabs a pen, says, “Found it!” and walks out the door. Sorry again…clip proved elusive.

1.              Yep, you guessed it, “American Pie.” The infamous pie scene. “We’ll just tell your mother we ate it all.”


So, now I can’t resist asking, anybody been in an “Interrupted Intimacy” situation for reals? Time to share, if you dare!



About Falling for the Marine:

Pretending to be in love has never felt so sexy.

USMC helicopter pilot Michael McCade has two goals: Get his damn back into alignment and keep his nose clean until his commanding officer clears him to fly again. The doctor-recommended massage therapy seems like a necessary step toward returning to the cockpit, but when his too-hot-to-handle neighbor, Chloe Kincaid, turns out to be his masseuse, he strays from the straight and narrow in a major way.

Chloe Kincaid is looking for a simple, no strings attached, ego-boosting hook up. But when her positively panty-melting neighbor, USMC Major Michael McCade, (aka “Major Hottie”), shows up on her massage table, she lets desire get the better of professionalism. Now they’re pretending to be engaged to avoid a whole lot of unanticipated consequences of a momentary lapse in judgment. But can a girl who avoids attachments at all costs fake an engagement to a straight-arrow soldier without falling hard?


Strategy firmly in place, Michael walked into the apartment. Chloe stood at the small table in the dining area, sorting through the mail. She wore a long, body-hugging black tank top over the white skirt he remembered from the infamous day at the massage clinic, and, hot damn, the lucky shoes. She looked up when he came in and gave him a smile, but as he closed in on her, the smile disappeared and her eyes grew wide. 

Her lips parted, but he didn’t give her a chance to speak. He slammed his mouth down on hers. She staggered back a little under the force of this kiss, so he simply hauled her up, hitched her legs around his waist, and kept on walking until he had her pressed against the wall.

She broke away long enough to mumble, “Careful of your back.”

He used the opportunity to shove the tank top over her head. “Uh-huh. I’m done being careful. I’ve got an hour before I have to report back to the base tonight and I don’t plan to spend it being careful.”


Covering her mouth again cured her of the desire to speak. Instead, she melted into the kiss. He shoved her bra out of his way and filled his hand with her warm, soft breast. 

Her head dropped back against the wall, and she very nearly purred.

“I’m back on flight status,” he murmured against her throat. 

That piece of news snapped her head up. She put her hands on his cheeks and pulled his face up as well until their eyes met. Hers were blinking back tears. “Oh…Michael. I’m so happy.”

“I’m about to make you even happier, because as far as I’m concerned, if I’m deemed fit to handle a CH-47, I’m fit to brace you against this wall, bury myself as deep inside you as humanly possible, and give you the kind of ride that leaves you sweaty and breathless and trembling from head to toe. Then I’m going to turn you around and fuck you from the other direction, just to prove to you beyond a shadow of a doubt I can make you come whenever I want, however I want. What do you say, Chloe? Would that make you happy?”

About the author:

Beach bum, book junkie, and award winning author of sexy contemporary romances, Samanthe recently signed with Entangled Publishing to write three novels for their Brazen line!

Sam was transfixed from an early age with any tale featuring a handsome prince, a great dress, and, of course, the all-important kiss, and eventually aspired to write her own happily-ever-afters. Naturally, she became a lawyer. The legal world heaved a sigh of relief a few years ago when Samanthe retired from law to take the plunge as a writer.

When not living the glamorous life of a romance author (i.e., chained to her computer), Samanthe keeps busy with the care and feeding of her extremely patient prince-charming of a husband, a not-so-patient ball of energy known as their son, a furry ninja named Kitty, and Bebe, the trash talkin’ Chihuahua. Their love, support, and willingness to eat Pizza Hut three or more times a week enables Samanthe to pursue her literary dreams.
