Hello, lovely ladies 🙂
How are you this fine weekend? Funny how the first week back at work erases all memory of holidays past 🙂
Yay! We finally have some news concerning Darker. Thank you for all the emails I recieved sharing the news. I love that you guys think of me when you come across a juicy FSOG tidbit! It seems Kim Basinger will be playing Elena in Darker. Personally I think the blonde bombshell will portray the aging beauty that’s supposed to be The Bitch Troll, very well.
This week I read:
The Baller by Vi Keeland, a Down and Dirty Football novel, taught me, once again, that you should never judge a book by it’s cover. With Mr Muscles on the front, I expected a naughty poolside read, but what I got was a stunningly great book. The characters were well developed and the story had a surprising depth. And what to say about the delightful Brody, A.K.A Subway? Think Mal Ericson with his charming cheek, plus, of course, a body that simply does not quit. I loved this unexpected read.
Appealed by Emma Chase, book three in the Legal Briefs series, was another great read. I wasn’t crazy about the first book in the series, but I’ve enjoyed each subsequent book more and more. Emma is always witty but still manages to build full and plausible characters. You don’t have to read these books in order.
Sebring by Kristen Ashley, book five in the Unfinished Hero series, started out great. She set up the story for a magnificent climax, but for me, it fizzled out in the end. The conclusion came way too easily given the scary possibilities that she built into the tale. Nevertheless, it was a good book bar the long, run-on sentences that made me stop at times. Again, you don’t have to read these books in order as each book features their own hero, but I would suggest you do, as it makes the series richer knowing the background of the characters that reappear.
On my shelf I have:
Betrayal by Aleatha Romig, book one in the Infidelity series. Thank you, MAC for the rec 😉
And as the month is drawing to a quick close, here are the books we can expect from our fav authors in February:

Have a happy reading weekend, girls!
