Guys, I couldn’t put it down!!! #bookreview #RoyalSavage by @VictoriaAauthor

I picked this up a few weeks ago. It must have been on sale or something because contemporary romance purchases do not happen very often on my Kindle account. I remember seeing the cover on Facebook, and once I was done wiping the steady stream of drool from my chin, I one-clicked that shit.

Yesterday, I worked straight through to 7pm with no breaks, so at the end of the day, writing was the last thing on my mind. I hit up my Kindle library in search of something to read and found the cover again.

Like, seriously?!? Can someone point me in the general direction of where they are growing boys that look like him??? I’m there. I’m so there.

LOOK AT THAT COVER!  (*licks computer screen……….again*)

Anyway, I cracked ROYAL SAVAGE, read the first chapter, and I was sold. The first chapter drops you in the middle of a horrific scene, with little-to-no detail about what’s happening. You just know it is *not* good. As hooks go, that first chapter is a damn good one!  I started reading at about 9pm and didn’t put it down until I read THE END at about 3am.  This post is my review of the book.  🙂

Royal SavageROYAL SAVAGE

I CAN’T CLOSE MY EYES… I refuse to. Every time I do, all I see is blood, death, and pain. I can feel it – almost taste it, bringing me back to that night.

It doesn’t matter that I’m still breathing; I no longer need it, I no longer want it. I despise it along with everything else around me.
The only thing I long for is to fucking fade away. I’ve given up. Until her at least…

AVALON.

She comes into my world, knocking me on my ass.

It turns me on to have her around me. Makes me want to wrap my hand around her tight little throat and fuck her until she feels my pain, feels the monster in me, but also makes me want to protect her from the very thing that she should be afraid of… me.

Once she sees the damage that I’m capable of; she’ll look at me like everyone else around me does: with fear.

AVALON KNIGHT

HIS EYES… THE DARKNESS IN them draws me to him, making me want to taste him, feel him… and save him. I shouldn’t have gotten on the back of his motorcycle that day. I know that now. Colton warned me. I was told it was dangerous. I was told that nothing would be the same. He was right.

ROYAL is dangerous, dark, and seductive; the very thing that keeps me hanging on, willing to give my last breath just to touch him… breathe him in.

He’s savage, inked, and highly captivating. So different from his brother…

He’s hazardous to my health, mind, and body, yet the only thing that I crave. I want to free him. I want to change his mind, but I’m afraid that he’s already too faded…

It’s a Big Bloggy Update

I’ve been a bad blogger and haven’t posted nearly enough, but I promise this is the turning point.  lol  I have written a blog post to end all blog posts, or, more accurately, to jump-start my blog again.  What you’re going to find in here is an update on the life of me in the last two months and what’s coming next.

If you need me, I’ll be over here killin’ some peeps. #amwriting

Good morning, you sexy mofos!  I’m excited this morning.  I have nothing to do today except WRITE.  I’ve busted out the Dance With the Devil manuscript document and I plan to spend my entire day writing between calls at the day job.  Luckily, the benefit of working this close to Christmas is all the NORMAL people around the country assume we’re probably closed and leave us alone.  Makes for a quiet day on the job.  I’m hoping to have this bad bitch wrapped up by New Years (that would be AMAZING) so I can announce the release date.

Here’s a little snippet from Dance With the Devil.  Last week, I released a piece of it as a part of a teaser.  Instead of making a new teaser image, I figured I’d reveal just a little bit more of the conversation.  😉  Enjoy!

“You may be having trouble controlling your powers,” he said in a gruff whisper, his tone intimate, making her spine tingle, “but I know you, probably better than you know yourself.  What sets you apart from them is the very core of what makes you Deziree.  My Deziree.   I know every part of you.”  He leaned closer to her ear and she heard him inhale, slow and deep.  “I know your scent, I can smell the effect I have on you.  The energy I feel between us is the same vibration that’s been there since long before your powers ever manifested.”  He came around her side again, circling her like prey. 

“I’ve tasted you, Deziree.  No matter how hard you try, you will never be able to hide from me.  Try to play unshakable all you want, I know the truth.  You’re scared.”

Vegas, Dance With the Devil, Coming 2016

Dance With the Devil Teaser 1

Oh!  Also, I finally finished Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series (to date) and I didn’t hate it.  I still have a hard time with some of the concepts in the book (like the main character being backbone impaired), but overall, it was good.  The steam factor was WAY up there.  Hot hot HOT sex scenes.  Sylvia Day would be a truly gifted porn director.  lol  I will be (im)patiently waiting for the last book to come out in April.  For the record, I’ve still yet to read any erotic romance with BDSM that holds a candle to Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners series.  She set the bar in my mind and nothing else has been able to compete as of yet.

Alright, I’m off to write!  Talk to you all soon!!!!

Sylvia Day is a dirty bird! @SylDay #amreading

Good morning, bibliophiles.  I’m writing to you today with two large cups of coffee sitting in front of me and the distinct groggy feeling you only get from an all-nighter.  To add to the ambiance, I have this guilt hanging over me, as though I spent until 2:30am peeping through the bedroom window of one of the hotter couple in literature. Let me explain…

A few weeks back, I received an email from Sylvia Day’s publicist letting me know that One With You,  the fifth and final book in the Crossfire series, is coming out on April 5, 2016.  I’ve owned the first three books in the series for about a year, but hadn’t gotten around to reading them yet.  I decided that was as good a cue as any to get myself caught up in time to read/review the fifth book.  I emailed the publicist back, asked him to put me on the review copy list, and I took a day in late November to blow right through Bared To You.  I liked it, a lot, but I didn’t have time right them to delve into the rest of the series.

Fast forward to this past Saturday.  I spent most of the day feeling like absolute garbage.  I took a midmorning nap to try to break my mild fever without meds (I hate taking meds if it can be avoided).  When I woke up, my daughter was headed off to her dad’s house to help out with a dinner party.  Since I was still feeling shit-tastic, I grabbed a blanket and Reflected In You, and dragged my miserable self down to the couch I have perched in front of my woodstove.

And then I proceeded to stay there for the rest of the day and most of the night.

  Bared to You Reflected in You Entwined With You
  Captivated By You One With You

I ran right through Reflected In You, reading all but the last twenty-or-so pages because I couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer.  I woke up at 5am the next morning feeling much better, and dove right back in.  Once finished, I moved right on to Entwined By You and made it about forty pages in before I had to head out to finish up Christmas shopping.  While I was out, I picked up a copy of Captivated By You as well.  I was hooked and couldn’t bear the thought of finishing up Entwined only to not have the next book to move on to.

Well, I ended up reading until 2:30am, finished Entwined and start on Captivated.

Now, I sit here typing this post and I feel hungover.  I’m exhausted and my eyes wont stop watering…

…but it was so worth it.  😉   I’m sure I look like a bit of a trainwreck, but we all have to make sacrifices, right?

I have already done my review of Bared to You and the remaining three are all scheduled to go live this week on Pure Textuality.  I just have to type up the review text, and finish Captivated By You, which I’ll be doing as soon as I hit publish on this post.  😉  I have to say, so far, Entwined With You is my favorite in the series.  🙂  Which is your favorite????

The side thought I will leave you with because it probably wont make it into my reviews is this: Sylvia Day should totally sell the rights to certain scenes to a top shelf porn company.  Not parody but actually acting the scenes out.  That would make totally hot porn.  lol

I doubt there will be much writing happening today.  I’m so tired, I don’t think I could keep my head on straight enough to form much by way of coherent thought, but you never know.  This post is approximately 600 words more than I thought I could string together.  😉

@CoreyTaylorRock is ranting his ass off again and how I somehow missed the last #Supernatural episode…. #YoureMakingMeHateYou

Greetings, humans!  I know I have been a little quiet for the last few days and I have a completely valid excuse.  I’ve been on a reading binge.  I’m talking about a bender of epic proportions.  Not really sure what triggered it, but I am letting it ride through the rest of this week.  Then, on Sunday, I will return to my writing ways and bang out the rest of Dance With the Devil (*crossables crossed*).

Here’s a partial list of what I am reading right now:

Season finales of #TheBlacklist, #TheVampireDiaries, #TheOriginals, and the dirty book I read. @raynelola @NBCBlacklist @cwtvd @cworiginals

Last week was a big week for TV junkies everywhere.  I am one of them.  I had several shows I am faithful to wrap up their seasons and I spent a good portion of the time watching them crying like a great, big freak.  This post is a long one and contains spoilers for the shows listed down below, so, if you haven’t seen those finales, you probably don’t want to proceed unless you’re cool with being spoiled.

OH!  And on top of that, I read a FABULOUS book Thursday, so, I’m going to talk about that, too!

She did WHAT to his WHAT?!?!?! My review of Strings by Kendall Grey (@kendallgrey1)

As most of you probably know, I also own and review on Pure Textuality. I decided that I am going to share some of my favorite reviews here on my author site. Not all of them. Just the ones I really like and think you might like too. I am an avid reader and I figured you guys might be interested in some of the stuff that I like to read. So! Here’s my first one! Strings by Kendall Grey!

WARNING: STRINGS is not suitable for slut shamers, uptight stone throwers, Holier-Than-Thou prudes, humorless virgins, persons with chronic neck or back pain, pearl-clutching bitties, those who disparage crude humor or vulgarity in their many forms, closed-minded people with sticks up their asses, or anyone under the age of 18. The vile, base language and shocking, unholy sexual acts contained herein are not condoned by anyone with a lick of sense and should certainly not be reproduced without proper training and protection. The potty-mouthed and perpetually horny “heroine” (the term is used loosely) of this book does not resemble a normal, well-adjusted, or remotely believable person in any way, shape, or form. The author acknowledges that the characters in this book are shallow and two-dimensional; the plot is both ridiculous and insipid. She makes no apologies for any of it.

* Readers are strongly advised to wear latex gloves whilst reading to minimize contamination risks.

Free-spirited musician Letty Dillinger adheres to a strict, “no strings attached” policy when it comes to men. After a wild night of unabashed sex in a fancy hotel room, she never expects to see the adventurous stud she dubs “Shades” again. When her all-girl rock trio books a tour at the last minute as the opening act for their archenemies, Letty’s shocked to discover she knows the competition’s new lead singer. Intimately. Shades is no longer a one-night stand. Now he’s the guy she has to one-up on stage every night for the sake of her career.

Sharing close quarters on a bus with her sexy nemesis and his bad-boy buddies puts Letty’s Golden Rule to the test. On this tour, guitar strings aren’t the only things being played. And when heartstrings are pulled too hard, they’re bound to snap sooner or later.
