Hello, lovely ladies ;)

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)

Here’s a naughty one to make you blush and giggle ;)

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:

T  play

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!

Then, I found this…. FSOG Smarties or M&Ms…. 

FSOG smarties

And why not? If we can have ice-cream and wine, why not choccies, right? LOL!

Safety first! Whahahaha!

I hope you have a beautiful week, girls and I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

On my shelf I have:

Lead and Play by Kylie Scott, book two and three of the Stage Dive series.

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 ;)

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.
