Hello, lovely ladies ;)

I hope that you’re having a great weekend.

The Laters Baby facebook page shared this clip on Jamie’s YouTube site, because really, will we ever get enough of the trailer??

This week I read:

Screwdrivered by Alice Clayton was a great read, funny and cute with a good twist of sexy in the end. It was exactly the type of read we’ve come to expect from this entertaining writer.

Interview With a Master by Jason Luke was a VERY saucy read and all from the male POV. I enjoyed it, it had some great insights into the BDSM lifestyle, and I would especially recommend it to those folks out there that still find it hard to wrap their minds around the willing act of submission.

The Mistress Files by Tiffany Reisz was yet another awesome read. She is one of my all time favorite authors and I bought this because it was the Mistress files stories all in one book. Much as I love her as a writer, I despise the short novellas, or worse, chapter style stories she sometimes publishes, so it was great to buy them all together in one book.

Currently I’m reading:

Reasonable Doubt by Whitney G Williams, book one in the Reasonable Doubt series. So far, I’m liking it and I can see why it was recommended to me (thank you, MAC) however, there is just one little thing I have to get off my chest as far as the writing in the book is concerned, something I see pop-up from time to time. Though I’m the last one to point a finger at typos and grammatical errors, this particular mistake is one that irks the living daylights out of me. For the love of all things holy, the words come and cum are NOT interchangeable synonyms! The word come, used in the sexual context means: to have an orgasm, the actual act. The word cum is a slang word for ejaculate, for example: when a guy comes he produces cum. There are lots of resources on the internet that uses these two words interchangeably but they are not to be confused with the other. Phew, sorry girls, but I had to get that out there! :P

On my shelf I have:

About five books on pre-order but I’m not sure where I’ll be going next….

This one made me laugh so hard mostly because I’m sure that, come December, I’ll have the same tan!

Also, iTunes has some hot specials atm, book bundles in our genre for 99c! Gotta’ love e books! ;)

Hope you have a beautiful weekend, ladies and please remember to share your fab reads with us!

Thank you Kereny for the latest Spanish Chapter. I’ve just posted chapter 39 in the sidebar ;)

This week I read:

Sweet Addiction by J Daniels was hot but still I maintain that the language was OTT colorful.

Black Lies by Alessandra Torre was AWESOME. A slight deviation from the regular storyline in our genre but WOW! What a fantastic read. I’m giving it my Best of the Best award – again – but not for the normal reasons. The plot twistery was an intriguing delight and her writing style was very unusual. Thank you, Susan for this great gift! I loved it.

Screwdrivered by Alice Clayton is one I’m enjoying very much. Funnier still than Wallbanger.

On my shelf I have:

Interview With A Master by Jason Luke. I’m fascinated by this one, mostly from an interesting review here on the blog…. It’s my understanding that it’s written in a biographical style and apparently, the man has some skills…. ;)

Ha! This goes double for a few people in my life…. LOL! :)

Have a wonderful weekend, girls and if you have something great to share, please do so ;)

Hello, lovely ladies ;)

I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend, and to my fellow Aussie followers, enjoy sharing Father’s day with your families :)

This week I read:

lead  v3 s

Lead by Kylie Scott, book three in the Stage Dive series, was another fantastic read. I love when a book actually makes you laugh out loud but still have a good, meaty story. I’m going to give it another Best of the Best! Kylie Scott is on my list of favorite authors now :)

Vain part three by Deborah Bladon was a bit of a letdown. This is one of those instances where a book is broken up into novellas and sold separately. It started out well enough, despite the fact that I dislike when authors break up a single book like that, but after book two’s cliffy, I expected more from book three. To me, the ending came too easy.

Storm, book one of the Storm MC series by Nina Levine, was not for me and two thirds in I abandoned this book. However; if rough, tough, and gritty biker books are your thing, then maybe you’ll have more fun than I did reading this one.

Currently I’m reading:

Sweet Addiction by J Daniels. So far, it’s pretty steamy and I’m enjoying the story but personally, the level of swearing in the book bothers me. There is such a thing as overkill.

On my self I have:

Black Lies by Alessandra Torre (thanks to Susan) and Screwdrivered by Alice Clayton, book three in the Cocktail series)

Hello lovely ladies ;)

Gotta’ love the approach of summer here in the Southern hemisphere! Personally, I can’t wait :) On top of that I had an awesome reading week!

This week I read:

Tyler by Jo Raven was intense! A little dark but I loved this well-written little gem. I just adore finding a new author that I enjoy and then bask in the delicious luxury of having a whole slew of her books to look forward to! I’m going to give this one my Best of the Best award!

Play by Kylie Scott was a fantastic surprise. I certainly enjoyed book one in the Stage Dive series but this one, book two, was fantastic! I LOVE Mal. He’s definitely my new book boyfriend. He was funny, infuriating, arrogant and, of course, a hot tattooed drummer! LOL! Another Best of the Best from me!

Tempting the Bodyguard by Jennier Armentout, book three in the Gamble brothers series was a great read. I enjoyed the action/heat combination that she delivers so well.

Allure by Lacey Weatherford was on Amazon’s “top sellers of the year so far” list so I thought I’d give it a go but it’s a big NO, from me.

Currently I’m reading:

Tyler by Jo Raven, book two in the Inked Brotherhood series, is a first for me from this author. It’s another of those series that you don’t need to read in order.

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.
