Hello there, lovely ladies 🤗

I hope you had a lovely reading week. Have you got any news to share? Anything exciting happened?

Here’s what I found: Ellen takes Fifty to Disney…

And if you love the look of Jamie, you might find this promo shoot clip enticing…

They do look good together, though, rumour has it, that both him and Dakota hate the Fifty Shades franchise. I guess it can’t be easy to play the main characters in such a loved but controversial story. 😜

This week I read:

Royally Matched by Emma Chase, book 2 in the Royally series, was another great installment in this range. She does cute well, but damn, she can also write a heart wrenching scene with the best of them.

Currently I’m reading:

The Deep End by Kristen Ashley book 1 in the Honey series. Usually I don’t like to put the horse before the cart, but in this case, I’m going to go out on a limb. I’m only about halfway through, and though I was reluctant at first because the theme: a Domme topping an Alpha sub, I gave it a go anyway. She promised that, with this new series, she was going to turn up the heat, and though I’m still not going to run to the nearest BDSM-R-Us to find my inner Mistress, this book is off-the-charts H.O.T. 😉 As always, her regular style is evident and she’s wordy as all getout, but it quickly grew into an intriguing tale. I will let you know my final thoughts next week. And if you’re wondering WTF an Alpha sub is, don’t feel alone. Before this book, those two terms seemed mutually exclusive to me! Guess I was wrong 😝

In celebration of this past week’s International Women’s Day, here’s a bit of female friendship truth…

Have a great week, girls. I hope you meet some lovely books to share with us.

Hello, lovely ladies 🤗

How are you this fine weekend? Our flaming temperatures have finally cooled a little. Thank goodness. It was ridiculously hot the last while. 🔥

If you’ve not had the pleasure of a virtual tour of Christian’s apartment, check out this cool clip that does it for you…

I saw this collage on Twitter, liked the memories it evoked, but sadly I don’t know who the clever owner is:

And as I know how very concerned we all are with staying fit, centered, and focussed, I thought I’d share this useful video on yoga…

LOL! 😂

This week didn’t see much action in the reading department – I’m too damn busy, but I must mention that I’m enjoying Fidelity more with this action packed edition to the five book series.

Happy Valentine’s Day! While I love the institution of V-day, I do hope you love your loved ones HARD – Every. Single. Day! 😍

So, by this time, I’m guessing most of you saw the movie. Whatever will be chat about now? LOL! 😂 But despite the proverbial show being over, I do have some news:

Firstly, Susan shared this, a fantastically entertaining review of Darker on Buzzfeed.

Then, I saw some clips on YouTube during the week showing the Easter Egg that came after the credit roll of Darker, but as far as I can tell, they’ve all been removed. I suspect copyright infringements. 😳

Movie Pilot chats about the H.O.T. scenes that ended up on the cutting floor because they were apparently too H.O.TTTTT for the movie going public.

From the 50 Shades of Grey Support page on Facebook I saw an ABNewswire report on the launch of a new book: Fifty Shades Deeper, a book by fans, for fans. If you’re keen to “delve deeper into the messages and insights of the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy” this might be the read for you. 

And lastly, Sharon sent me the following: Cringeworthy Sex Ed Stories, again as featured in Buzzfeed (boy, there are some real winners in there), plus this cute kitty meme in honour of V-Day:

Must’ve been a very naughty kitty! 😂

This week I read:

rds
Raw Deal by Cherrie Lynn, book one in the Larson Brothers series. I read my first book by this author not long after I turned to this genre, and despite having one of the worst book covers I ever saw, I LOVED her story and style. It’s been a long while since I’ve had the pleasure of reading a new book by her, but, I can confirm that I STILL love her writing. I am going to be totally cliched and say that she has a way with words. These may not life changing stories, but consistently good ones with just the right side of yummy.

Currently I’m reading:

Fidelity by Aleatha Romig, book five in the Infidelity series. Let’s hope THIS is the final one. Five books for this particular range is a book or two too much – at least IMHO.

On my shelf I have:

Royally Matched by Emma Chase, book two in the Royally series. I loved the Cinderella-esque nature of the first novel, so I’ve got high hopes for this.

And finally, this week, in the search of the perfect V-day gift for my hubby, I came across this… uhm… practical gift…

Imagine the fun your man could have with this in the shower!! 😂 And I love the “ONE SIZE FITS MOST MEN” disclaimer! 😂

Have a beautiful weekend, girls. Remember to share your loveliest reads with us. 😘
