Between the covers book club and competition time!

Hiya, ladies ;)

I’ve got some fun to share with you on this happy Sunday, but first, the book club….


This week, as I was fighting a cold I had LOTS of time to read:

l  ael

 v1 v2 twtty

Lick by Kylie Scott, book one in the Stage Dive series was great. Can’t go wrong with hot, tattooed rockers, right?

And Easy lie by Carmen Willow was an awesome read. Nice and dramatic, a fantastic recommendation.

Vain by Deborah Bladon, part one and part two was interesting. Firstly, I HATE when writers do this, basically publish a few chapters as a stand alone book and then split them into three or four books, but the story was intriguing. The male protagonist is a sexy, arrogant ass and part two leaves you on a horrific cliffy, leaving you gasping for part three.

There’s Wild, Then There’s You by M Leighton was another good read. Typical of her writing style and the high standard we’ve come to expect of her books.

 Currently I’m reading:


Tempting The Bodyguard by Jennifer L Armentrout, book three of the Gamble Brothers series. I like this series and you don’t have to read them in order.

 On my shelf I have:


Allure by Lacey Weatherford

Thank you, Jo for sharing this – a little bit of Kiwi humour; Fifty Shades and your momma! LOL!

Then some happy news for my New York readers:

The good people of 50 Shades! The Musical Parody has given me two tickets to their hilarious, titillating show to give away!

stage final

Competition rules:

50 Shades! The Musical Parody will supply two tickets to the winner of this competition for their show in New York City.  The winning entry will need to supply me with their e mail address. The decision in final. Tickets cannot be exchanged for cash. The winner is responsible for their own transport to the Elektra Theatre, New York City. Monique Lain is not responsible for the correspondence between the company and the winner.

Spanish chapter

Hey, girls ;)

Just a quick note to thank Kereny for her hard work. I just posted chapter 35 in the Spanish translation of Meander. Halfway already!





Between the covers book club

Hey, girls ;)

My week was crazy busy and my weekend even more so, but at least I managed a few great reads ;)


This week I read:

r  bog

Rogue by Katy Evans, believe it or not, was even more intense than the first installment of the Real series. I adored her debut, Real; book one in the series, but this one (book four) took the intensity to a whole new level. I loved it, and in an unprecedented second week in a row, I’m handing out my Best of the Best award.


Betting On Grace by Nicole Edwards, on the other hand, I found lacking of her usual sexy magic. While it had all the ingredients for a delicious read – cowboys and menage, it just didn’t do it for me.

Currently I’m reading:


Lick by Kylie Scott, book one in the Stage Dive series. This one came highly recommended and so far it’s looking good. Well written in exciting language. Here’s a little glimpse at David – just because… ;)

On my shelf…. I have too many to mention. I’ll put them up as I read them ;) LOL!


And I’m sure the mommies out there will agree with this one, thanks to the Purity FB page….


I hope you have a productive, blessed week, ladies. Please share your best reads with us!

Spanish chapter and another cute share

Hello, girls ;)

I hope that you’ve had a good week. Just a quick note to let you know that I just posted chapter 34 of the Spanish translation – thank you, Kereny :)

Then, a cute share from Musikstarr: Fifty Shades of Frozen:

Crazy in love

So lovely… a version of the background song; Crazy In Love, the soundtrack to the FSOG trailer, is now available on iTunes



or, you can listen to it here:

I’ll also post it in the sidebar, along with the rest of Meander’s music ;)

Best one I’ve seen so far….

Hello, ladies ;)

This is so utterly adorable. I laughed so hard I could barely breathe! Thank you, Susan for sharing this little gem. 

Is there ANYTHING that FSOG hasn’t touched??? LOL!

Not that THIS has something to do with FSOG, but hey, I’m sure you won’t complain ;)

Have a great week, girls ;)

Between the covers book club

Hello, lovely ladies ;)

Again, an early book club post as the latest Spanish chapter is up. Thanks, Kereny for chapter 33 :)


I know the release of One night Promised by Jodi Ellen Malpas was later in the US than it was here in Aus but I’d love to get some feedback from you. I’m still reeling from my disappointment. 

This week I read:


The Saint by Tiffany Reisz. This is book one in the White Years series and the follow on book to the Original Sinners series. Wow, what a mind-f@ck this was. Just like Søren, Tiffany is a brilliant literary sadist and she tortured my emotions through the whole book, right up to the very last pages. An awesome read and, just like the others in the series, I think deserving of my Best of the Best award.


I’m loving the fabulous-book streak I’m on at the moment. Yay!

Currently I’m reading:


Rogue by Katy Evans. So far the sexy intensity is keeping me enthralled like only Katy can.

On my shelf I have:


Betting On Grace by Nicole Edwards.


Ha! Finally the truth! ;)


I hope you have a beautiful, blessed weekend and I look forward to hearing all about your reading highs and lows!
