Hello there, lovely ladies 😉
How are we all doing? How many times have you watched the trailer by now? I’ve seen dozens of posts dissecting every aspect of it, but this one by Elle Magazine was a fun read. Thank you, Susan for the link. 😘
Now that we’ve had a peek at Darker, it comes as no surprise that Fifty Shades fame, coupled with the trailer, broke some records – again. Not least of which is the dethroning of “The Force Awakens” as the most watched trailer in the first 24 hours of release. See The Hollywood Reporter post for more. #AmazingStuff
Another cool thing I found this week was an actual recording of Golden… Remember, in Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series, when Brett Kline came back into Eva’s life along with his band’s hit single he wrote about her? That song, Golden, is now a REAL one… Listen to it here. I’ve heard many rumors of a Crossfire TV series in the works, but I’ve seen no concrete progress. Perhaps this is it? Let’s hope…
And then, look at this very naughty statue! Wow, that’s some bedroom acrobatics!
Oh my…. ☺️
Before we start chatting about our book week, I wanted to mention one last thing. If you like to put a face to the name of your favorite book boyfriends (and girlfriends), check out this nifty board on Pinterest. This clever gal’ posts (unofficial) pics of the main characters in our genre. Pretty handy, IMO 😋
This week I read:
The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas, while certainly a classic in the overbearing bodyguard/vulnerable waif genre, didn’t deliver on the raw and fiery passion that we had with the delectable Mr Ward, Lord of the Manor. The bond between the two characters seemed shallow, built on physical attraction, and not much else. And while I enjoy a good “can’t-keep-my-hands-off-of-you” story, this one seemed to miss something. Pity. I was sooooo looking forward to more of the fireworks we saw in the This Man series. Also, when you go into a book with a certain expectation, it’s very hard to remain impartial when you want to offer a review reflective of the story. Keep that in mind if you’ve not read ANY of Malpas’s books before. But, if Jesse is a book boyfriend of yours, I reckon you’ll feel the same.
On my shelf I have:
Tapping The Billionaire by Max Monroe, book one in the Billionaire Bad Boys series. The cover alone seems promising, right? 😉
Lastly, as I am a conscientious blogger, *wink, wink* I thought I’d share with you some valuable info – compliments of Sharon:
Safety first! LOL! 😂
Have a great weekend, girls. Let us know what you’re reading 🤗
