Between the covers book club

Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

Happy International Woman’s Day for this past week! 

I hope you reveled in all your beautiful female powers. 💕

In the spirit of celebrating all things female, I spotted this is a Wonder Woman graphic novel my daughter was reading, and much as I think pregnancy is a magical thing, I thought it was absolutely hilarious that Wonder Woman suffered the same preggy afflictions as us mere mortals.

LOL! 😂😂

Then, the Laters, Baby! site reports on the Fifty Shades Freed’s DVD release: digital on the 24th of April and Blu-Ray on the 8th of May. Check it out for the list of extras we’ll see on the disk.

This week I read:


The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz was a fabulous read but again a BIG departure from her Original Sinners series. And as a side note, recently I’ve noticed that she’s scaled down on the bedroom antics. This one is especially lite on the lovin’, but it didn’t deduct from the interesting twisty tale.

Scenes From the Hallway by Penny Reid, book 6.5 in the Knitting in the City series, was a very short novella filling in some blanks as the preamble to Marriage of Inconvenience. It’s definitely worth while reading this free book if you are into the series in general.

Currently I’m reading:


Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid, book 7 in the Knitting in the City series, and The Man I Love by Suanne Laqueur, book 1 in The Fish Tales series. I’m particularly keen to start on the latter. This author has won a slew of amazing awards for this debut novel. #ExcitingStuff

By now you are well aware of my love for animals, so this meme shouldn’t come as a surprise…

LOL! 😉😂

Have a brilliant week, girls. Hopefully you’ve unearthed some great reading treasures.

    Hi Monique, I’ve never been a horse person but after looking at that picture I could be easily persuaded lol.
    I had a fantastic reading week, I read An Exaltation of Larks by Suanne Laquer, what can I say about this book? I absolutely loved everything about it from the brilliant writing to all the characters in the story, I was worried after the first few chapters that it wasn’t going to be my thing, I was so wrong. Thanks for the recommendation.
    I am currently reading A Charm of Finches, book 2 in the series, I am only a few chapters in but so far I’m blown away, New author crush 😉
    To any other ladies celebrating Mother’s Day today, have a lovely day.

      Hi Katherine 🤗 Yes! The horse is pretty good looking! 😉😉
      I’m so glad you found joy with the Lark book. I’ve got her debut novel waiting for me. Yay! Thank you for sharing the review with us! 👍🏻
      Have a wonderful week. 🌸

    Interesting about Suanne Laqueur books – haven’t heard of her. Looking forward to your review, Monique. Glad you are “in crush”, Katherine. Nothing like being in love!!
    I had a wonderful reading week with my long anticipated book by Karen Moning. Out of genre for this group, but it took me to the total depths of despair up to happy places. And amazed at the directions a truly creative mind can take. I’m still going back to savor favorite bits. She is an amazing writer.
    I’ve been having an Original Sinners itch. May have to think about doing a re-read before long. I’ve preordered the next Kingsley book coming out in June, and the excerpt looks quite interesting.
    And look at the loins…I mean lines on that horse. Just makes you want to reach out and spend the day stroking that awesomeness!

    Monique…the poster said digital FSF coming out April 24th…but there’s no date yet on Amazon. Any idea where that date came from? Possible to verify?
    Anyone know what’s going to be added to the digital/DVD release? Perhaps, like the rest of the story? Too selfish? LOL


    • Sharon says:

      I’m curious what the deleted scene is this time around….


    • Monique Lain says:

      Hi Lissa 🤗 If you’re on my site, within the post, click on the “Laters, Baby!” hyperlink. That’ll take you to the Laters, Baby! site with the article. It includes a list of extras we can expect on the DVD. And no, I think that’s super wishful thinking!! LOL! 😂😂 I suspect our chances of seeing the full, ripe version of FSOG on the silver screen is forever lost 😔

    Love Penny’s books…. sad to see the ‘Knitting series end! I read a cute fast book that made me laugh out loud several times…. you should read it when you need a easy going book! By Emma Hart. “Mixed Up” Also looking forward to the fourth “This man” book by JEM! That is all for now!


    • Monique Lain says:

      Hi Tara 🤗 Yes!! Penny is toats AWESOME!
      Thank you for the rec. I’ve read some of Emma’s books. They were pretty good. I’ll check it out. 👍🏻
      Ooohhh. Yessss. I think all the Jesse fans are on the edge of their seats for more of the Lord of the Manor and his sexy brand of crazy. 🎉 Let’s hope she brings it. 🌸

    The man and his horse. I’m sorry but so what if he is packing at the top. He has no bulge in his pants. Give me a tight zipper and a cock outline in the pants. Can’t fuck that chest.


  6. Crystal Stearns says:

    Hi all,
    Weather in Oklahoma is fucking killing me. Been sick w allergies and sinus infection for about 2 weeks. BUT nothing was going to keep we down last Friday when the grandson went to the State Powerlift meet in Oklahoma City. He won over all third place in his wt. The team together had enough points to win First in the State. Second year in a row they are State Champs.

    Haven’t felt much like reading this week so still dragging along on my Master and Mercenaries by Lexi, Blake. And my faithful Fanfiction.

    I have a confusion to make. Now Monique don’t shoot me. I know I was a big hater of Jesse Ward through out all 3 books and wanted to string up the damn writer when they killed off Ava’s mother. But since you loved him and he is one of your book boyfriends I decided to buy the 4th book when it popped up for preorder. Maybe it is all the crap in my head that I can’t blow out made me do it. I’m just giving y’all fair warning I might bitch a bit. HA HA HA. Most likely a lot.

    Most of the porn guys w long thick cocks don’t look like that cowboy.
    First look at the bulge
    Second look at the chest
    Third look at the face.
    *It all comes down to what you need or want:
    Something to fuck, Something cuddle or Something to look at.


    • Katherine says:

      Crystal, I am shocked you are going to read With This Man, I never liked Jessie but loved the books but you hated him with a passion 😁
      Ava’s mum didn’t die or did I miss something?!
      Thanks for your tutorial on porn guys, good to know, I’ll bear that in mind 😁😁😉😉 you really tickle me and reading comments from you always brighten my day x

      Liked by 1 person

      • Monique Lain says:

        I think it may have been Eva from the Crossfire series. Who can keep all the stories straight? 😂👍🏻
        I still love crazy Jesse. I just so hope that the new book brings it! 😎


    • Monique Lain says:

      Oh wow, Crystal! That’s great for your grandson! Congratulations. 👍🏻👍🏻 You must be super proud.
      And hopefully you’ll feel better soon. I get sinus infections too. They are awful! 😝
      Your confession made me laugh, Crystal. You’re welcome to b&tch all you like if the book stinks! 👍🏻😂 I sure will. She’s got big shoes to fill! 😉😉
      And yesssss for getting one’s guy ogling priorities straight! I second that! 😂😉👍🏻

    Oh, boy I do miss the chattering of our ladies!! It was a nice … Horse!!
    Well time stands still for no one so been doing some reading and checking in to spy on the book lists…Just finished the trio series of Ruthless King…Queen…Empire. It was flaming hot and been a long time since I “plowed” through a series so fast!! “Lachlin Mount” reminded me just a tichy bit of Gideon.
    Also I finished out the series on the Steele Brothers. That is the longest series I have actually loved in a while. Helen Hardt did a great job on the three brothers.
    Oh, man read the Office Intrigue set two last month wow…forgot just how menage my girl, Nicole was!! Set your sheets on fire!! If you like that at all.
    Hoping everyone is keeping well and all this snow leaves like yesterday! Yeah I live in Canada but damn I hate snow!! Hahahaha

    Chat soon lovelies
    💋 MAC


    • Monique Lain says:

      Hey girlfriend 🤗 Lovely to see you! Yes! The horse was fine indeed! 😂😂
      Glad to hear you enjoyed Mount! He sure was something. 😋
      Oohh. Office menage by the threesome queen? That sounds delicious. I’ll have to check it out. I do like a good trio from time to time. Yummy! 😋😋
      I don’t blame you for your snowy dislike. I’m not a fan of the frosties myself! 😜
      Stay warm, lovely. 🌸
