Between the covers book club and Spanish chapter

Hello, lovely ladies 🙂

It’s weekend! Yay! Phew, after another super busy week it’s nice to wind down 🙂

For the Spanish readers, check out the sidebar for chapter 57. Thank you, Kereny!

I absolutely LOVE all the FSOG cakes, and this one is no exception. You gotta’ admire the stunning detail!


Well…. it seems as though Henry was leading us all by the nose by neither confirming nor denying the rumours of him playing Jack, but he’s finally come clean and, at least to most of you, it will be a relief to learn that we won’t get to hate him as Hyde after all. This is what The Stir had to say about him breaking Fifty Shades-fan hearts all over the word.

Again from The Stir, Charlie Hunnam gives us a tiny insight into why he left the Fifty Shades cast.

Then, here’s something for you to do on a rainy day; an adult Fifty Shades of Grey coloring book! Check it out on Kickstarter.

All these little tidbits are from the 50 Shades of Grey Support Facebook page and the Laters, Baby site Heart


 Thank you, Sharon for sharing this pic of Jamie with us. I can see why it’s a fav of yours! 😉 


This Week I read:

rev  ttt

Revived by Samantha Towle, book two in the Revved series, was okay. It started out great, had all the ingredients for a knock-out story, but the ending let the book down. A very anticlimactic wind-down to a would-be explosive read.

Tall, Tatted and Tempting by Tammy Falkner, book one in the Reed Brothers series, on the other hand, was outstanding! This one goes straight onto my favorites shelf. Logan is AWESOME!! And thank you, Kereny for the great recommendation!

Currently I’m reading:


Release Me by Ann Marie Walker and Amy K. Rogers, book two in the Chasing Fire series. I’ll review fully with next week’s book club but I maintain my stance from last week – very much like Fifty is many ways, but well worth the read.

On my shelf I have:


Smart, Sexy and Secretive by Tammy Falkner, book two in the Reed Brothers series.


This made me giggle…. Truth! 

It was lovely virtually chatting with you, girls. Hope you have an awesome, restful reading weekend!

Hello ladies 🙂

I hope you’re enjoying a beautiful weekend. With all the excitement from last week’s article in The Stir regarding the possibility of Henry Cavill playing Jack Hyde, I thought it would be fun to share some more casting speculations, again from The Stir…

Then, you gotta’ love Ken and Barbie playing Fifty, Fifty….


Oh my…. Naughty dollies! 😉


This week I read:

r rm

Roomies by Lindy Zart was a lovely read, cute and heartwarming, but short in the steam that we love so much.

Remind Me by Ann Marie Walker & Amy K Rogers, book one in the Chasing Fire series, was a great find. If you’re looking for a “similar to Fifty Shades” read then this one might be for you. Book two is coming out shortly.

Currently I’m reading:


Revived by Samantha Towle, book two in the Revved series. This is Leandro’s story so you can read the series out of order, if you like.


Happy reading, girls! I’ll see ya’ next week 😉

Hello, lovely ladies 🙂

As a cold snap has finally reached our sunny side of the world, and really, I have nothing to complain about, but damn, I am officially rebelling against winter – just sayin’! LOL!

According to The Stir, Henry Calvill will be playing Jack Hyde in Darker.

A little reminder for in case you’ve forgotten what The Tudors actor looks like 😉 

This is an interesting clip, a great edit, but it definitely shows the harder edge of Christian in the movie…

Then, last week, I forgot to post the latest books from our fav authors coming in July:

This week I read:

Exclusively Yours by Shannon Stacey, book one in the Kowalsi Family series, was a very cute little read! Great story but sadly lacking in the hotness factor that constitutes the difference between chicklit and a DELICIOUS read.

Manwhore +1 by Katy Evans, book two in the Manwhore series, was MUCH better than the first but still not at the top of Katy’s game. Again I found the grammar issues a huge distraction, but this time around Rachel was much more bearable. The longing and intensity between her and Saint was off the scales HOT, but there was very little in the way of background story. A good read overall.

Currently I’m reading:


Roomies by Lindy Zart is, so far, another heartwarming read but I’m halfway in and so far, no steam….

On my shelf I have:

Revived by Samantha Towle, book two in the Revved series.

Bait by M Mabie, book one in the Wake series.


That’s it from me for today, girls. I hope you have a beautiful week 😉

Hello girls 🙂

This  news from the 50 Shades of Grey Support Facebook page:

It may not be best edited clip I’ve seen but it’s lovely to see all the steamy scenes together…

YIBADA speculates about Darker

And MTV News features some…. uhm…. interesting Fifty Shades tattoos 😉

And then, I thought it might be worth our while to take a closer look at Christian’s tie seeing as it played such a BIG part in the book…


I’m sure you will all agree, gray really is his color! LOL! 😉


 This week I read:

The Offer by Karina Halle was okay. The perfect poolside read.

Trouble by Samantha Towle was another great read from this author. I enjoy her style, the great editing, and – of course – the heat.

King my T.M. Frazier, book one in the King series, was a wonderful surprise read. Edgy, gritty, gripping, with a twisty cliffy ending. I can’t wait for book two…

On my shelf I have:


Exclusively Yours by Shannon Stacey, book one in the Kowalski Family series.

It had to happen – Even the Minions are touched by Grey….


LOL! That’s all from me for today, lovely ladies of Grey.

For the American readers, I hope you have an awesome Independence Day weekend!
