Hello ladies ;)

I hope you’ve had a good weekend and enjoyed the second glimpse of our movie. I always love all the spinoffs that come after the release of new footage. Have a giggle at this one – Barbie does FSOG

And then, thanks to the Laters Baby Facebook page, check out these delicious stills from the trailer:



This week I read:


End Of The Innocence by Alessandra Torre was stunning. The only complaint I had were the loose ends.

Currently I’m reading:


Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina and Lauren. This is shaping up to be a fun read. I’ll keep you posted.


I’m keeping it short today as I’m exhausted after our marathon move! :P


Have a beautiful week, girls. Chat soon :)

 Hello, lovely ladies :)

As expected my weekend is another whirl of boxes and cleaning. I hope, with all I have, that this latest move will the the final one in a LONG time! Also, my actual move day is the same day the trailer is being released so I’m not sure if I’ll have decent internet access by then, and being so far ahead in time here in Oz complicates matters further. Following the release of the trailer and then posting from my phone is sadly not possible, even with the latest in technology, but I will see what I can do. Please bare with me if my blog is not up-to-the minute on this one. I so enjoyed following the previous one’s release with you all.

This week saw the 100 day mark before the release of our long awaited, breathlessly anticipated movie and as if we’ve not been teased enough, there seems to be two teaser trailers for the second trailer; one for the US:

And one for the UK:

According the EL James’s Facebook page the full trailer will be released in the US on the 13th of November during Scandal on ABC. Beyonce remains closely tied to the movie. Her song; Haunted, will be released on the same day as the trailer it will feature in. See more on this from the Hollywood Reporter site.

Lastly on the FSOG news front, this week O.P.I nail varnish announced the launch of their Fifty Shades Of Grey range. This is set to happen early next year. I just love thee names of them, each named after a different aspect of the film: My Silk Tie is a pale, gleaming silver, Romantically Involved is a classic red, Dark Side Of The Mood is a stormy charcoal, a shimmering silver is called Shine For Me, Cement The Deal is a cool stone, and Embrace The Grey is described as a “chic, moody grey crème”. You can read more on the Laters Baby UK site.


This week I read:

Break In Two by MJ Summers was not for me. I managed to get about one third through before I abandoned it.

Blindfolded Innocence and Masked Innocence by Alessandra Torre, book one and two in the Innocence series, in stark contrast, was FANTASTIC. I loved the first book, promptly bought the rest of the series, and commenced serious immersement. I might even have a new book boyfriend. It took me a little while to warm to Brad but I am warm now; H.O.T actually! LOL!


Currently I’m reading:


End Of The Innocence by Alessandra Torre, book three in the Innocence series.

On My Shelf I have:

Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christine and Lauren, book two in the Wild Seasons series. I’m excited for this one, and was it not for my current Torre addiction, I would have jumped into this one ASAP!

Maveric by Lora Leigh, book two in the Elite Opps series.

For those of you following Tiffany Reisz, and with the imminent release of The King, you can check out the free stories on her site: Free stories


So, wish me luck. I hope you guys have an awesome week and don’t forget to share with us!

Hello Ladies :)

Isn’t this a fabulous idea? The Cape Town International Airport in South Africa has started a Flybrary where they encourage travelers to exchange their finished book for another, relying on the honesty of users to only take a book in exchange one. I can’t help wondering how many copies of Fifty Shades they already have ;)


Then, pictures sent to me by a reader left me scratching my head… Why, for the love of all things holy, would you wear horse hoof shoes?

This week I read:

Hardpressed by Meredith Wild, book two in the Hackers series was great, and naturally, I followed it with book three; Hardline. Now I await the fourth in the series.

Currently I’m reading:


Wild Card by Lora Leigh, book one in the Elite Ops series was FANTASTIC! Though I’m not quite through I’m confident in bestowing it my Best Of The Best award.

If you’re after a hard alpha male, deliciously dominant with a rough intensity then this is a sure winner. This book is as blistering as the sizzle on a griddle! I LOVED it. Well written and a plot so well thought out that I’m envious of this writer’s talent. I wasn’t crazy about the time jumps at the start of the book, but once the story started flowing it rocked my world. Gripping, intense, and a whole lot of HOT, HOT, HOT!!


There are a lot of great books coming in November including book four in the Crossfire series. These are screen shots taken from the Goodreads newsletter:





Yay for great books to look forward to! ;)


He’s still one of my top choices to play Christian – here’s a little Jessie for ya ;)


So, I wish you a beautiful week and look forward to hearing about your awesome book finds.

Hello, lovely ladies :)

I had a great reading week thanks to Katherine. Hopefully you also indulged in some sweet reads!


This week I read:

Tied by Emma Chase, book four in the Tangled series, was AWESOME! Funny and sexy. I love this series and if you’ve not had the pleasure I suggest you cuddle up with a copy and give Drew a go ;)

Hardwired by Meredeth Wild, book one in the Hacker series, was another great read. If you’re yearning for more of FSOG and Crossfire this is one for you. Blake is as overbearing and jealous as CG will ever be – just the way we like ‘em :)

Currently I’m reading:


Hardpressed by Meredith Wild, book two in the Hacker series. I enjoyed the first so I will be finishing the series.

On my shelf I have:


Hardline by Meredith Wild, book three in the Hacker series.


Then, I wanted to share a serious FOSG fan… Check out this site for much more on the filming:

Hello girls ;)

After a hectic first week at work I’ve forgotten all about having a holiday! LOL! And on top of that we are on the steep, swift downhill to the end of the year…. *sigh* Where does the time go? The light at the end of the tunnel? At least it brings us closer to February and the release of the movie…. ;)

From the sexy to the cute and right up to the downright bizarre; FSOG has touched EVERYTHING around us…

Knight by Kristen Ashley, book one in the Unfinished Hero series, was chock-full of hot, Alpha male and all the delicious little bits that goes with that… It was a great read.

Stay WIth Me by J Lynn, book three in the Wait For You series was another good book from this author. I always enjoy the action/romance aspect of her stories.

Currently I’m reading:


Tied by Emma Chase, book four in the Tangled series. Already I’m enjoying the fun this series is known for.

If you enjoyed the extra bit of Black Lies from last week, click the link to sign up for Alessandra Torre’s newsletter at the end of her e book; Black Lies and receive a PDF copy of one of the deleted scenes from her book. Thank you, Sharon for sharing this little gem of info with us ;)
