Hello, lovely ladies
I trust you had an awesome week and that you spent a good deal of time with some beautiful delicious reads.
For the Spanish readers, please find Spanish Meander – Grey holiday in Spain in the sidebar. This is a short story I wrote BEFORE I finished Meander. This is the second last story to be translated. Wow, what a journey it’s been. Kereny, you are a star!
I absolutely ADORE this pic Sharon shared with me this week. A very LITERAL book boyfriend….
Cool, huh? 😉
This week I read:
Deception by Aleatha Romig, book three in the Deception series, was okay. I will continue the series, I think she’s heading for five in total, but I’m not completely in love. Too many plot holes for my liking. I guess I’m hoping that she’ll draw it all together in a pretty, tidy bow, but I cannot imagine that it will be the case.
Mr Perfect by J. A. Huss was not for me. I chose this above Calico because I was in the mood for the comedy that this one promised, and initially, it certainly delivered. What I didn’t enjoy was the 0 to 100 km/h style lovin’. I guess it’s pretty strange that, as an erotica writer, I’m so anti sex-off-the-bat, but I NEED the love (or at least a connection) to spark and develop between characters before they jump each other’s bones. Sadly it’s gone on my DNF pile, but I can see the appeal. If quick (rough) heat is not an issue for you, then you might like to dip your toes in this one. As a side note, this is the third book I’ve read by this author and all three were COMPLETELY different from the previous. It’s very unusual in our genre to see such diversity in overall theme, feel, and content. Not sure what to think about that, but if you were expecting this book to be something along the lines of her acclaimed Three, Two, One story, then you’ll be in for a helluva’ surprise.
Currently I’m reading:
Calico by Callie Hart. This was another rec, and so far, I can see why. Phenomenal writing and complicated characters make this book feel grown-up and sophisticated. Will report fully next week…
On my shelf I have:
Fighting Fate by J. B. Salsbury, book six in the Fighting series. I’ve not read this author before, so here’s hoping…
So, imagine walking in on this in a hotel room:
Naughty, I know, but oh-so creative! LOL! 😉
It was lovely chatting with you, girls. Thank you for always thinking of me, sending me pics, and book recs, and jokes, and links. I love hearing from you!
Have a happy weekend!
