Delays and between the covers book club…

Hello lovely ladies :)

You know how much I hate doing this, and I know that you’re looking forward to the next installment of Meander, but I’ve had a rough week plus I seem to be coming down with something. I’m sorry! I’ll be taking it easy so hopefully I’ll be back on track by next week :)

I know I can bank on your understanding :)

This week I read:

Arouse by Nina Lane. Every now and again a book comes along that’s unassuming, beautifully written and touching.  I really enjoyed this gentle take on a new direction in our sexy genre. I loved it. Enough to award it my Best of the Best award! Thank you, Susan for turning me on to Nina Lane :)

Allure by Nina Lane. This is book two in the three book series. I’m loving it as much as the first one.

Hello lovely ladies ;)

I’m loving the speculation about Meander at the moment! Thank you for all your feedback ;)

This week I read:

Found in You by Laurelin Paige, book two in the fixed series. It was good and I will be reading book three, but for the moment, another series has stolen my attention…

Currently I’m reading:

Arouse by Nina Lane. This seems a little different from our usual Dom/broken male books but I’m loving the great writing and her gentle approach so far.

I saw this at a coffee shop the other day…. Truth!  LOL! ;)

Found In You by Laurelin Paige. This is book two in the series and I’m enjoying it but I’ve had very little time for reading this week.

On my shelf I have – thanks to my lovely friend Susan:

Arouse by Nina Lane, book one in the Spiral of Bliss series. I’m looking forward to this one. I have it on good authority that it’s a stunning read.

Hello, lovely ladies!

I hope you’re having a spectacular weekend, and of course that it’s filled with lots of time to spend with a great book, or two, or three….;)

It is the start of the school holidays and all that that implies but I’m hoping to make time to write the next chapter. Please don’t hold your collective breaths though… Little beings demanding attention does not make for ideal writing circumstances… :)

This week I read:

 Theirs To Cherish by Shayla Black. As always her books are smoking hot and I love that they are threaded with a good measure of action. This is part of the Wicked Lovers series, number eight in fact, featuring characters that you encounter throughout the series, but they can all stand alone. A word of warning though, if a threesome or in some cases a foursome is not your thing, this is not the series for you.

Currently I’m reading:

fou

 Fixed On You by Laurelin Paige. This is book one in the Fixed series. I’m liking it so far. It’s the classic un-tamable bad-boy gets tamed story.

On my shelf I have:

fiy  twisted

 Found In You by Laurelin Paige, book two in the fixed series and Twisted by Emma Chase, book two in the Tangled series. I’m having a hard time deciding if I should give my book hangover a break and go with the more lighthearted Tangled follow-on or if I should just immerse myself in more of the Fixed series….. Decisions, decisions…

Thanks to Paola and Kereny I’ve updated the Italian version of Meander with chapter 65 and the Spanish version with 23 :)

 And as it’s one of my favorite pass times I’m going to tease you some more with a little taste of 67….

“…“Here’s what’s going to happen. We’re ditching this vehicle and taking another. Please, no squandering time, no funny business. We don’t have time to waste and I won’t hesitate to… coerce your cooperation.” His pointed look is sharp and directed at me, bearing an intensity that I instinctively know not to underestimate….”

FUNNY

I hope you enjoyed this little joke as much as I did. Too true! LOL!

Have a good reading week, ladies and please remember to share!

Between the covers book club and chapter 66

Hello, Ladies!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Please find chapter 66 ready for your pleasure in the sidebar – this time unedited, but I’ll have it updated shorty.

This week I read:

Fueled by K Bromberg, book two in the Driven series. If you enjoy books that are similar to FSOG then you’ll probably enjoy this series. I will read book three, but not right away. Personally I found the similarities a little too much.

On my shelf I have:

ttc

Theirs to Cherish by Shayla Black. I love her other books so I’m looking forward to this one.

I’ve also had the pleasure of updating chapter 21 and 22 of the Spanish version of Meander thanks to Kereny :)

Apparently the FSOG trailer has come and gone and word on the street is that we’ll hopefully have it soon, but in the mean time, this is another lovely fan made one to enjoy:

Teaser and news…

Hello ladies ;)

As I failed to grace you with a teaser over the weekend I thought I’d do it today, a little teasing taste of chapter 66:

T

“…She moves in front of us in her ultra-efficient manner, shoulder squared, cutting an intimidating yet reassuring figure. I watch her pushing down the door handle, her muscles moving with the fluidity of her skills before they lock, her body jolting so powerfully her limbs suddenly seem stiff, almost robotic…”

For the Italian readers, I’ve updated the Italian version of Meander with chapter 64. Thank you Paola! ;)

Please note that WordPress has made some changes to how the blog works and suddenly formatting is an issue again. Please bear with me while I find my way again ;)

Hello, lovely ladies. 

I hope this weekend is treating you well. 

I have to say that I’m thrilled to see all the new readers on the blog. I love that FSOG still seems to be an evergreen love. To my long suffering followers, thank you for your continued support and a hearty welcome to the newbies :)

This week I read:

Aftershock by Sylvia Day. This is book two, the final book in this super short series. Again, I loved it, but I really disliked how short is was.

Currently I’m reading:

Fueled by K Bromberg. This is book two in the Driven series. It took me a while to get around to reading book two. It’s not that I didn’t like the first one, it’s just that it is so like FSOG in so many ways that I always feel like I’m reading a copy of of the original. I know a lot of readers thoroughly enjoyed it and, so far, it is a good read.

On my shelf I have:

Theirs to cherish by Shayla Black. Please note that, if you read it prior to my review, this book might contain menage scenes ;)

I hope you have a blessed week, ladies and please pass on your best book finds!

Hello lovely ladies,

I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend :)

Please find chapter 65 in the sidebar – ENJOY!

This week I read:

Afterburn by Sylvia Day, book 1 in the Aftershock series, was written in her typical Gideon and Eva style. I loved it but damn, it was disappointingly short. Hardly worth calling a book! Why an author of her stature starts a series with 99 pages, especially when all of us are addicted to thick-bound sexy volumes, is a mystery to me.

The Wild Ones by M Leighton was awesome! It made me cry but it was a beautiful story. A fantastic read.

Currently I’m reading:

Aftershock by Sylvia Day, book 2 in the Aftershock series. Not much longer than the first, though….

Hello, ladies!

How is your Sunday shaping up? My darling husband is whisking me away next weekend so I’m hoping to have the next chapter done before then – please note I’m HOPING :)

This week I read:

Rare and Precious Things by Raine Miller. This is book four in the Blackstone Affair series. I enjoyed it, but as one reader already mentioned, a tad anti-climatic. Good read though and series well worth enjoying.

Unlocked by Maya Cross. This is book three in The Alpha Group series. I enjoyed this series, I liked that, for a change, the setting is Australian, and I always enjoy a little bit of action alongside all the hotness. A good read.

On my shelf I have:

ab  two

Afterburn by Sylvia Day and The Wild Ones by M Leighton. I must say that I’m looking forward to see what Sylvia is going to do with fresh characters. I love Gideon and Ava so much, it’s hard for me to imagine that I could like another couple more.

Dr Suess: relevant whether you’re six or sixty!

“…“Sir, with all due respect, it’s damn near impossible to guard someone who doesn’t want to be watched.” To underscore his point he tips his head my way – a reminder of me giving Sawyer the slip…”

Kereny is working her hiney off and sent me chapter 19 of the Spanish version of Meander – see it freshly posted in the sidebar ;)

This is priceless ladies – have a laugh with me :)
