Bared to You by Sylvia Day

Bared to You by Sylvia Day

This is a sophisticated, provocative, titillating, highly erotic, sexually driven read and is extremely well done. The title fits the book in more ways than one. It not only applies to the sexual nature of the book, but how Eva and Gideon give of themselves to one each other in body, mind, heart and soul. Eva is a smart, self-assured woman who finds herself drawn to the charismatic, enigmatic Gideon. Their relationship is initially based solely on sex, but their connection is so powerful, that they are overwhelmed with the need to be with one another. Most times their dates, rendezvous, encounters…whatever, result in some very primal raw sex. The two […]

Having My Baby and Taming Mad Max by Theresa Ragan

Having My Baby and Taming Mad Max by Theresa Ragan

Fabulous freebie! I picked this up on a whim. I have other books from this author that have gotten some good ratings…all free at one time too…so I checked it out. I intend on reading all of them…after reading this little gem today. When I read the blurb for the story, I thought this sounds ridiculous, so I clicked on “read the sample”, because I’m so overwhelmed with books, I didn’t want to add another one, just for the sake of getting it for free. I sampled, and needed more right away. I bought it…zero dollars…and then read until I was done. Very enjoyable and it left me with a warm […]

Knight by Kristen Ashley

Knight by Kristen Ashley

I’m very torn about this book. Knight had me up at nights, totally enthralled and at the same time frustrated. I loved it, and then I hated it. I don’t know how many discussions I had about this book with friends but weirdly also with myself (not out loud, mind you, but in my head). For me, Knight is like glue that just keeps sticking to me even though I try to get it off. While that does speak for a really good book with a well told story, there were too many things that bothered me to fully embrace it. I’m not going to go on about the plot because […]

Looking Forward To: Tall, Dark & Heartless by R.L. Mathewson

Looking Forward To: Tall, Dark & Heartless by R.L. Mathewson

Today we have another upcoming release for you that we’re very excited about! R.L. Mathewson is a self-published author, who has been getting a lot of attention lately. Her books are sweet and sexy but most of all, funny. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard and had so much fun with a book. I was introduced to R.L.’s writing through her Neighbors From Hell series. Playing For Keeps was my first book by her and I’ve been a die-hard fan ever since. R.L. has already visited our blog a few weeks ago and we were able to interview her. If you want to read the interview, click here. R.L. […]
