It was the the month of love filled with hearts, candy, flowers and all that good stuff. We had a huge Valentine’s Day gift exchange in our Schmexy Girl Book Club. We read the amazing Stinger by Mia Sheridan. Jesey has the month of March and we are reading Coming Home by Pricilla Glenn (super excited). Let’s see….Oh! We had our Schmexiest Book Male, some pretty amazing sales, and of course some fabulous books.
It has been a weird few months for me. As you’ve noticed I haven’t really been reading too much. I was once averaging almost a book a day, now I’m lucky if I’m getting a book every two weeks. I think there’s been a lot of things attributing to it, but most of all I’m burnt out. When we started Schmexy it was Jesey and I and as you know we’ve doubled. It is really easy to get lost in wanting to help every author. You fear you’re turning down the next Fifty Shades of Grey. So you take it all on, you say yes to every one. You try to so hard to give quality reviews and often at the expense of your family. So I had to take a few months to recharge. I’ve been reading for fun. Just getting lost in the stories and not always doing it to review it. Liberating is an understatement. But that’s why my lists are less and less and will probably continue to be a little less.
Captive in the Dark, Seduced in the Dark & Epilogue by C.J. Roberts- HOLY FUCKING SHITBALLS!!!!!!! Yeah ummmm WOW!!! I read this series in four days. I was lost and loving every damn minute. My heart was in my throat, I was so happy I had my (non supportive) Support Group. I made as many people read as I could. I FLOOOOOOVED it!!!!! C.J. grabbed me from the first word and I couldn’t stop. I don’t know why the hell I waited so long to read these books. I couldn’t get enough. Her writing was beautiful and I felt every emotion that Livvie did. I am also kinda disturbed at myself for how much this book *cough cough* you know was hot *blushes*. Caleb was different from the other dark books, just amazing!
Oh and just a little treat.. here’s two teasers
OK, this was an off month for me. Although I read and reviewed a TON of 4 star books there was only 1 book that can hold a candle to them this time around. I had originally forgotten about it *gasp* as it was not a book I reviewed on the blog. It was February’s book of the month for our book club (thanks for the reminder Amy!!!!) So, yeah I have a Bookgasm….a big one! Stinger by Mia Sheridan!!! Trish and Jen had been on me for awhile to read it. I held out as long as I could, I wanted it to be fresh in my memory for when we started our discussions. My plan was to read a couple chapters a day and then follow along with Trish’s questions. Well, I read the book in a total of 2 sittings, yup I could NOT put it down. I kept PMing Trish bugging the hell out of her as I bugged the hell out over Carson and Grace. WOW is all I can say. This is a story about finding what you wanted all along and it was AMAZEBALLS!!
Ok ladies here it is. I have had kind of a rough month. I feel like I didn’t really read a lot but the books I did read (as much as I really liked them) they all had one thing in common…
Yup, you got it…MANWHORES! Now don’t get me wrong, I FLOVE a man with experience and who really knows what he is doing. But does he have to have a reputation as a womanizer who sleeps around and is known for one night stands? I mean really?! And what is it about the female counterpart that suddenly makes him want to change his ways….be a better person….stop sleeping around BLAH BLAH BLAH.
A guy doesn’t have to have had a hundred partners to do some amazing things in bed. All he has to do is pay attention to what he’s doing and make sure he makes the appropriate connections *wink wink* And for these guys that all the sudden change their ways….let’s face it, maybe if you weren’t so busy whoring around in the first place you may have found “the one” sooner if you had just paid attention!! Of course I do believe in fate, and waiting for the right one to come along, but that does not mean you have to fill your time in with meaningless sex.
I love bookgasms. I live for them. A book that gets you all worked up…heart pounding, insides twisting, you don’t want the book to end and you savor EVER WORD. Readers live for books like this and luckily I had a SO MANY bookgasms this month. Yes, you heard me right! I was so fortunate to read so many FANTASTIC books!!! Enjoy…. no particular order!!!
My first bookgasm was given to me by one of my most FAVORITE authors. Alison G. Bailey captured my heart with her first book, Present Perfect. This time around, she gave me Brad in Past Imperfect, who happens to be my Book Boyfriend of the Week!! Please tell me you’ve met Brad?!!! He is just so amazing… the love story, the lines, the jokes, the perfection that Alison knows how to create is INCREDIBLE!!! And don’t forget “the smile”. Don’t miss this one Schmexies!!! You will fall IN LOVE!!!
My second bookgasm goes to a book that I happened to come across. That book was Therapy by Kathryn Perez. What an amazing, heart stopping, soul breaking read. I could not put it down and needed therapy myself. This is a story of love, forgiveness, fear, and acceptance. Just beautiful. You don’t want to miss it!!
Another on my list was Unravel by Calia Read. I have no words to convey how FANTASTIC this book was. Thank God I had my friends around to help me survive through this one. Calia’s words were just captivating and I held my breath the entire time!!! I can’t say that I’ve read anything like it and she completely blew me away.
OMG! Raw. Twitch. Enough said. He was the guy I should have hated… but I never seem to follow the rules, so there you go… I LOVED HIM!!! My only wish is for another book!!! Belle… DO YOU HEAR ME?!!! Please?!?!!!! I need more, I crave it, would do anything for it. I’m begging woman!!! Unfreakinbelievable!!!
Oh Jasinda!!! What you did to me! I was on an emotional roller coaster and fell IN LOVE with your Ever trilogy!! AMAZING!!! You had me on the edge of my seat! I cried, cried some more, and this series completely sucked me in. I could not put these books down!! Make sure you grab them and some tissues and a huge bottle of wine! WOW!!!!
Finally, my last bookgasm was Every Second With You by Lauren Blakely. Holy crapolla, Lauren writes some hot books!!! I FLOVE her!!! To say I was freakin fanning myself and needed a cold shower is an understatement. These books were the SHIZZLE!!! Make sure you check them out!!!
Whoop Whoop… don’t have any!!! Was so lucky that I loved all the books I’ve read this month!!! The only rant I have is the same as last month… spoilers in reviews! Here’s to another month of FANTASTIC books!!! Happy reading Schmexies!!!
My one and only Bookgasm for this month is Take a Chance by Abbi Glines. I waited forever for Abbi to write Grant’s story and when I finally got this book in my hands I tore through it.
Take a Chance had everything I wanted in an Abbi Glines book. It had a love story, it had the heart ache, it had the angst. It also had a stupid bitch that deserves to lick an ice cold pole and freeze her tongue and stick for like 2 hours. Just sayin!
All kidding aside, I had that feeling in my gut the entire time I read. Which means, Abbi did her job and then some. She fulfilled that want and need I had for Grant Carter.
He’s a fucking hot piece of Rosemary Beach ass and I love his dirty mouth. I just need book 2 before I lose my bird!! Holla!!! 5 HOLLAS!!!!!
*taking a deeeeeeeep breath*
My joint Bookgasm and Blueball for this month is a little different ladies. This time I am not discussing a book, I am discussing a muse.
“Who is Colton Donavan?”
I am soooooooooo dead! Whatever….Here I go…..
I LOVE Driven and Fueled by Kristy Bromberg and Colton is just the HOTTEST race car driving, cotton candy eating, Aussie kiss giving lover on the face of the earth. He’s all man, hot body, all yummy on the outside.
With that being said, I hereby BLUEBALL Pedro for Colton and BOOKGASM Stuart for Colton. HOLLA!!!!
So, for me, when I think of Colton Donovan, I do NOT see Pedro for Colton. NOT ONE BIT!!
Pedro is way too pretty for Colton – all beautiful and sensual looking. Colton Donavan is a ROGUE, people! Not a beautiful face I want to caress! I need a HOT, panty dropping man that has the ability to take control – can anyone really see Pedro dominating anyone? For real?
The man that plans on eating cotton candy off my lady parts is NOT going to be Pedro. NOPE!! I need a serious man that will look me in the eye, grab my hair and tell me dirty things. You know, make me drop to my knees.
I need STUART!! Yeah, he’s the man! He is sexy as hell, screams ROGUE, and you can see the vulnerability in him. He totally could kick ass if he had to. (Take a second to image Pedro in a fight…… okay. Point made, right?)
STUART IS COLTON DONOVAN. Stuart is the ONLY guy for the job. He can eat cotton candy off my girly parts any time he wants. Look at those muscles. Look at that face. So fucking serious.
I would like to end this edition of Blueballs and Bookgasms with a little reminder….
Payback is a bitch. Happy Blueball day, Amy! ;)
Let the games begin…….
