Hello, lovely ladies 🙂
What an exciting week it’s been! I’m stunned that Erika managed to keep that BIG a secret so close to her chest for so long. I think other authors with outstanding books from their series can take a leaf from her book. Love that we don’t have ages to wait before Grey graces our Kindles and shelves, but even a couple of weeks are too long for the Ladies of Grey, right? LOL!
This last week also saw fresh allegations here on our blog screaming abuse and non-consent, and though I deeply feel for women from abusive relationships, I find it very hard to understand that people still feel that BDSM equals abuse. I may not want my other half to take a cane to my back, but it doesn’t change the fact that some people want (if not NEED) the pain, and within the context of a HAPPY, CONSENSUAL relationship, how is consent EVER an issue? You might not understand it, or want it for yourself, but you cannot discount other people’s needs like that. Further, to say FSOG is not romance, well, again I beg to differ. Christian is as genuinely romantic as they come, no games, no hidden agendas, he was almost innocent in they ways he tried to give Ana MORE. What could be more beautiful than that?
Truth! But it certainly doesn’t ALWAYS come in a package you love or understand. Each to his own, peeps!
I also recently came across this little gem…
Wow, talk about a cover-all read! LOL!
This week I read:
Echo by E.K. Blair, book two in the Black Lotus series, was hard to read. Like Katherine, I got to a point where I felt she should simply end it and put herself out of the horrific misery that is her completely screwed-up life. You can’t fault the author’s ability to write drama, to find more and more shocking ways to mess with the already broken heroine’s (and I use that term loosely) world, but damn, at what point does drama become too much? I will certainly read book three when it comes out, but I don’t think I will ever love this heart-wrenching series.
Currently I’m reading:
Temporary Bliss by B.J. Harvey, book one in the Bliss series, is hopefully what I need to get out from under the dark cloud remaining from reading Echo.
On my shelf I have:
Temptation by Nicole Edwards, book two in the Club Destiny series. An oldie but hopefully as good as the first…
That is it for the book club, girls. Let me know how you go with the Black Lotus series.
LOL! I can relate!
Have a beautiful weekend!
