Sunday (Slacker) Book Blog

Okay, here's the deal.  These are tough times and I'm trying to simplify my life.  To that end,  I had to make the difficult decision to let go of my internet at home.  It's not that big of a deal because every frickin' where you go, they have wireless Wi-Fi.  Because of that, please anticipate that I may get behind in my blogging.

But here's my thought, I will be blogging on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Sundays will be the Sunday Book Blog, Wednesdays will be 'Whatever' Wednesdays where I talk (or blabber) about absolutely anything, and Fridays I want to be special so I'm trying to set up 'First Sale' Friday where guest bloggers will tell you my reader(s) about when they got 'The Call' and their road leading up to it plus any advice they may have for us languishing in Unpubbedlandia.  

OH and I have a special treat!!!!  But I'm not telling you now.  You have to wait until Whatever Wednesday to find out.  But  I promise you if you come back, you won't regret it.

Now onto the Book Blog

Two years ago, Chase Falladay saved Kia Stanton from being raped by her husband and another man.  Little did Kia know that her husband was a member of an ultraexclusive club where men shared their wives/girlfriends with other men...or that Chase was also a member.  Kia has always been fascinated by Chase and that attraction has not diminished as the years have worn on.  So when they run into each other one rainy night, they can't stop their attraction from spilling over.  

Chase has waited for years fro Kia to be ready for what he has to give her, to accept the lifestyle that he has chosen.  Once he's had her, he's not planning on letting her go.  He leads her deeper and deeper into his world of intense pleasure and menage a trois.  Unfortunately, someone else has their eye on Kia and he's not going to stop until she's dead.

Okay, a word about Lora Leigh.  I LOVE HER!!!!! 

Yes, that was three but she's worth every one.  She is one woman who knows how to do a threesome right.  She even managed to make a threesome involving twins (something that normally icks me out!) seem not only sexy but right.  That's a talent.  It's also a talent to make threesomes seem intimate and she does this with flying colors.  I'm reading another threesome book for a contest and I have to say the author doesn't come close to Lora.

Lora Leigh's love scenes are squirm in your seat sexy and if I had someone in my life right now, he would be extremely happy and buy me every single one of her books.  She is one of the few author who can truly put the romance into 'erotic romance.'  

I enjoyed Kia and Chase.  I also loved Khalid (their third) and I can't wait to read his story.  

If you haven't read Lora Leigh, RUN to the bookstore and pick her up.  You won't regret it.


Between Light and Dark by Elissa Wilds

Laurell Pitmann has no idea of her destiny until she is kidnapped by Axiom who claims that they are fated to mate and create a child who will be the Earth Balancer.  The Earth Balancer is the one force on earth who can keep the forces of evil in check.  Axiom knows all about balance.  He's a Gray Lighter, a creature born of light and dark 

Every once in a while I come across a new author and decide to give them a chance.  The back cover of this book read fabulous (the cover had something to be desired) so I picked it up.  

I have to say that I thought that the plot was interesting and inventive.  It's really difficult to come up with something new in paranormal.  Authors seem to be leaning toward angels and demons rather than vamps and weres.  This is sort of the same thing.  It was well written and I enjoyed it enough to finish the book.  However, for me, it lacked that 'oomph' that would send it into the awesome category. 

All in all, it was a good debut and I would pick up another of her books should I come across her name again.


Now, keeping with the tradition started over a Helen's Heroes and Colorado Vixens, I present to you...



In case you wanted to see his face...LOL

The Man Candy. All I can say is OMG!!!!

I like your new blog ideas.

What delicious abs!

And Lora's book sounds intriguing, too. I'm like you, a threesome has to be handled a very specific way for it to work for me. I'll definitely check this one out.
