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?

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!!

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:

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.

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!

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.

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! :)

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:

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!
