Hello lovely ladies.
Hope you’ve had a stellar week of delicious reading. I know I have! Today I’d like to introduce a special icon:
This little “Best of the Best” (BoB) award will only go to those books that grip me (and maybe you too – almost) as much as FSOG did. Though I don’t believe I’ll ever have a repeat experience like the one I had when I first read FSOG, I still think that every once in a while a book comes along that reminds one of the utter slave you were to those words and characters. How they lived and breathed in your mind and in your heart.
For the sake of setting the bar and catching up, so far I think the BoB should go to:
Okay, that’s done. Let’s see what happened this last week….
Last week I was finishing off Unleased by Cherrie Lynn.
I liked it but not as much as Rock Me.
My shelf book was: One Night With a Pleasure Pro by Michael Dakota.
Interesting theme, he’s a mind reader with the ability to “mind-jack” people’s thoughts and make them do certain things. He is a sex therapist who helps couples in the bedroom. I was intrigued and I liked that the author was male. In spite of finishing the book I’m not overblown.
Then I had a quickie with Sylvia Day’s Blood and Roses
A super fast, short story that mentions our fav Mr Cross but not in the same style as Crossfire – fun and frivolous.
BUT THEN… and thank you Jo Fergus for suggesting Jodi Ellen Malpas’ This Man because (cue the trumpets…) it was AWESOME and I feel deserving of the next BoB award!
I LOVED it! It’s a series so you can guess where I’ll be going next…
I must admit that there are a few things about the book that bother me, I hate that he calls her “lady” and at times I feel like slapping Ava, just to help her wake up but so far (and I’m almost done) I’m in love…. It reminds me more of Crossfire than FSOG and her writing style is poetic in places, something that I adore.
For this week, on my shelf, is the sequel to This Man by Malpas – Beneath this Man as well as Leave Me Breathless by Cherrie Lynn from the same series as Rock me.
Let me know what you’ve been up to
I can’t wait! Happy reading! 😉
