So cute!

Hello, breathless housewives – not that we’re all housewives, or even wives for that matter, but breathless? I think so 😉 LOL!

I hope you’re having a good week so far 🙂 Here’s a little “extra” scene added to the trailer that’s sure to make you giggle….


And as we’re into the bizarre, check this out!!!

Book club and MORE of the trailer…

Hello, lovely ladies 🙂

I hope you’re all still on a high from watching the trailer and lucky us, now that it’s hit cyberspace, there’s a whole slew of fan made delights to titillate us even more:

This is a short clip of an interview with Jamie and Dakota talking about the steamy scenes in the movie. I think it went much better than the pre-trailer interview.

All clips thanks to the Laters Baby UK facebook page:

Also, Sharon shared this:


Like her, this pic gives me hope that just maybe Jamie will be able to pull off the darker scenes that will come from Christian’s tortured confessions during the unfolding of their beautiful story. 

Then, I’m posting the book club post now because Kereny sent me the updated Spanish chapter early. Find chapter 32 in the sidebar, girls 😉 Thanks, Kereny!

This week I read:


Tamed by Emma Chase, book three in the Tangled series. I enjoyed it. The first two featured Drew and Kate’s story and this one is written from Drew’s buddy, Matthew’s POV as he pursues Dee-Dee. It was cute but a little more serious than the first two.

Currently I’m reading:


One Night Promised by Jodi Ellen Malpas. I absolutely adore her This Man series, and I was so keen to get to this new creation of hers but so far, (and I’m about eighty percent through), I’m disappointed. I really dislike giving negative reviews and I would love to get feedback from you guys on this one. It’s left me a little stumped, actually. Frankly, I’m only finishing it because I’m hoping the final twenty percent will shed enough light on the way the male protagonist acts to make me forgive him being such an a-hole.

One my shelf I have:


The Saint by Tiffany Reisz.

And of course Katy Evans’s new book, Rogue will be here shortly. I can’t wait! 😉

You’ve gotta’  love pre-ordering a book and one-click-buy! 😉

Sharon is also responsible for our book club joke this week and ain’t it the truth?

Thank you for your wonderful support of the countdown and all the great feedback and discussion surrounding the trailer. It was fun sharing it with you.

Have a wonderful weekend mooning over the smokin’ trailer and all the spin-offs that YouTube spoils us with 😉

Come on, girls; share your best reads with us!

Trailer analysis

Wow, so I’ve blown up your inbox with all my posts, and I guess we’ve all seen it like; fifty thousand times now, and have nit-picked it to death. I’ve finally managed to get it onto my YouTube channel and I’m sorry that the downloading link doesn’t work for overseas viewers. Can any Aussies tell me whether it worked for them? Here’s my YouTube link:

Also, I found this. It’s not official but beautiful nevertheless:

Okay, so, here’s what I think; negatives first: Dakota, though beautiful, has an edginess to her that doesn’t sit well for me with the wide-eyed innocence I always pictured Ana to have. She seems worldly to me, playing at coy rather than being so naturally. I would have preferred a more wholesome, girl-next-door look for her. Jamie on, the other hand, I feel is too cute. That pretty-boy face doesn’t have the depth of character of a man who’s been through hell and back as Christian has, but I might just be persuaded to forget all about that when he parades around in those low-slung jeans 😉 For me; I wanted to see a darker, more rugged Christian.

Having said that, I’m absolutely thrilled with EL James involvement in the movie; that she didn’t just sell the rights and left it there. I LOVED that what I saw in the trailer was an accurate representation of the book and those deliciously seductive lines that CG delivers so smoothly. I cannot wait for him to say, “Keep still,” or “Come for me.” Lastly, I can easily overlook my concern about the actors provided the movie is true to their all-consuming chemistry and that love that just blindsided them. In short, I want to see the SPARKS fly between them, not just sexually, but the way their fragile love CONSUMED them, even when doing the plainest things and I think the trailer delivers a hint of that. Overall I’m much happier than I thought I’d be. I’m honestly excited for the movie.

I say, roll on February! 😉

Full Today show trailer

Hello lovely ladies 🙂

Wow, I think we almost blew up the internet last night! I’ll get to your comments during the day but overall I was impressed. I LOVED that they seem to have stuck to the book and those sexy lines from Christian that just makes you melt.

Anyway, I digress. Here’s the link to the Today show as posted by the Laters Baby UK page:


Breathless….. It’s here!

It’s finally here! What are your thoughts, ladies?

yes, yess oh yes

You have to wonder; if the hype is THIS big for the trailer, what will it be like when the actual movie comes around?

Today show version….

I’ve posted the Today show trailer on Twitter, hopefully I’ll get it posted on here soon!!
