Gosh I don’t know WHY we take so long to remember that we haven’t had one of these in a long time! I love this damn post! We hope you guys all enjoyed our 25 Days of Book Boyfriends and we have some good news we’ve decided we are going to keep bring some of our favorite schemxy men to you every week!! YUP!!!!
Anyway, it’s been about a month since we had a Bookgasm post so be prepared for us to have a lot on each of our lists. During the Book Boyfriend month we really went a little crazy with reading things that we have put off or that either one of us told the other to read. With trying to bring you guys new books and quality reviews we don’t always get to read what we want or what we heard the other Schmexy Girl raving about. So without more of my stupid babbling…
Eeeeepppppp!!!! I swear you are all going to hate me because my list is kinda friggin insane. I went HOG WILD during the month of December. I was kinda devouring books like a fiend. I had a lot of DNFs so my blueballs is kinda large and you will all probably think I’m insane but it was my mood. You know I’m the more emotional, dark and twisted book lover. I can’t help it. I love them. I want you to make me feel and get so sucked in I’m gasping for air… Just in case you wanted to know what makes me Bookgasm. Ok so here is my BEST books I’ve read in December… (SIDE NOTE- I’ve already bought paperbacks of the first two.. yeah that good)
Tears of Tess & Quintessentially Q by Pepper Winters – I just finished this book a few days ago and is actually going to be #1 on my personal Top 5 must reads. I literally have the biggest book hangover! It was so INSANELY GOOD I can’t even tell you!!!!!!! You have to experience it for yourself because HOLY SHIT its just OMG. I mean really OH MY GOD! I made Jesey read it immediately. I’ve gifted I don’t know how many friends. I’m telling you its epic. She’s almost poetic in her writing its breath taking but the story… THE STORY IS beyond words!!!!!!! SO yes stand by people Amy is on a mission!!!!!!
Gabriels Inferno, Gabriels Rapture & Gabriels Redemption – Ummmm I’m hot for teacher!!! I read all 3 books in 3 days. I lived and breathed this series. I didn’t sleep!!!! I literally was so drawn in and absolutely wrapped up in this series I can’t rave enough. I loved them!!! LOVED!!! I love smart books that have an amazing story wrapped up in them. So so so well written!! BRILLIANT!!!
I decided I’m going to use this to talk about another thing. RATING BOOKS.
So we don’t rate books on here. We simply give you a review and let you decide if it sounds like it’s for you or not. You can tell by how much we scream, shout, cry, post whether we loved it or not. So by me saying oh 3 star or 5 star makes no real difference in our hearts. However, on Amazon we don’t have that luxury, we have to pick a number right? So what makes me or you knock a book up or down? Here is what I usually base off of:
1. Was the plot good?
2. Was the writing and character development good?
3. Did it evoke emotion? Happy, sad, anger, frustration, horny *wink wink*, you know anything other than ……
4. Would I read it again or read the next book in the series?
That is pretty much what I look at. My 5 stars I would re read and recommend to ANYONE I can find. My 4 stars were great and totally recommend but I don’t know that I would re read, maybe though. My 3 stars are good books, maybe lacked in the emotion or character stuff. I probably wouldn’t read it again, but I MIGHT read another book by the author. It was probably a good book but was lacking for me to be great. My 2 stars are either DNF or there is no chance in me reading again. I don’t give 1 star ratings. EVEN if I hate the book, EVEN if I don’t finish it. I don’t give 1 star.
So why do so many books get 1 star?
Does it mean they didn’t deserve it? Well I get REALLY upset by people who give 1 star because they don’t like the ending. So what if it has a cliffhanger? That doesn’t mean the entire book is shit, it just means there is ANOTHER book to read. If you read all the way up until the end I’m going to think you liked the book because you didn’t stop at 10%. Do you know when you 1 star a book what it does? So I’m not saying there aren’t genuine 1 star books, trust me I’ve read them too. I guess I just look at some ratings on Amazon and get sad because their write up regarding the star rating doesn’t fit a 1 star.
Welcome back to our favorite post!! It’s been too long for sure. I am so happy to have several books too offer up for Bookgasm this month!! December gave me the chance to read some books that someone *cough cough Amy cough* has been trying to get me to read for quite sometime.
I’ll start off my agreeing with 2 of Amy’s Bookgasms – First of all Tears of Tess was INCREDIBLE!! She told me to read it and I was done with it that night. So intense, sexy, and insane I absolutely loved it. Next I would like to say thank you to Amy for finally reading Worth the Fight – Nico is a panty melter for sure so I am super thrilled that Amy finally met him!
The next book I’m and Bookgasming is Tangled by Emma Chase. OMG freaking hilarious male POV, Drew had me laughing one minute and then needing to change my panties the next. HOT DAMN was this AMAZEBALLS!!! My next mission is to read Holy Friggin’ Matrimony, the follow up novella.
This next book has been bumped up to a spot on my Top 5 Must Reads!! Sempre by J.M. Darhower. Another intense story that takes you through the life of a Mafia family and young girl who is a second generation slave. I adore stories about blossoming love and overcoming the toughest battles which these two definitely do!
I surprised myself with this next one. Trish pushed me to read it…she kept saying, “Just TRY it!!” So I did and HOLY FRIGGIN’ CRAP was this book hot. Not something I ever thought that I would be saying about a book with main characters named Tate and Logan….but, yeah….WOW!!!!! The story was so well written that at some points I actually forgot it was 2 men, now that’s success!
This is my one and only Blueball book for the month (guess that’s a good thing). This is tricky for me though….I really wanted to like this book. The first in the series was great and so I expected the same for the second. The book is What He Really Feels by Lisa Suzanne, it’s the follow up (based on a secondary character) to How He Really Feels. I was curious to see what would happen to Travis after he had his heart broken by Jules. That little bit made me read the book through to the end, I had to know that he would be ok. Well, the journey there left me struggling a little bit. I like leading characters to be strong and well….even Travis calls himself a pussy. I’ve had my heart broken and yes it’s hard but OH MY GOD I just wanted to smack him. He whines and obsesses over his past, present, and future. Oh and the kicker is that he calls his penis “TJ” for Travis Junior – 22 times throughout the book! In the end I was happy with where he ended up and Lisa Suzanne leaves us wondering (in a non cliffhanger type of way) what will come next for all of them. When the third book in this trilogy comes out I will be reading it….I NEED to know #SeriesWhore
Hi ladies. During the month of December, I definately did a lot of reading. BUT, mostly I re-read!! HOLLA!! I just couldn’t help myself. I know I know, I should be reading new and different things. Why oh why do I go back to my favorites?? Creature of habit I suppose. But let me at least tell you what tickles my fancy. I love hearts and flowers, love, romance, angsty, SEX! Lots of it!…Dirty talk…Those are my kind of books. So of course, when I need some of THAT, I turn to my girl Samantha Young. I couldn’t help myself. On Dublin Street is a freakin classic in my eyes, and I could read it and re read it a million times and never get sick of it. Same goes with Into the Deep. Especially with Into the Deep, that books starts off angsty, and heart-wrenching from the first chapters. Even though I know the outcome of these books, I still get carried away. Between Braden Carmichael and Jake Caplin….Just LOVE!!!!
Of course my re reads wouldn’t be the same without getting my Kristen Proby fix. Will Montgomery was one of my book boyfriends for our 25 Days, so I decided to re-read Play with Me. Well that let to a whole friggin re-read of the series. HOLY MOLY I banged out the whole damn series in a week!! What is wrong with me!!!! After Will, I chose Caleb. That hot freakin SEAL turns me inside out. Then came Leo Nash!! Those damn Stars, wanna lick them!!!!! Then Nate because you can’t get enough of his dirty mouth and that freakin piercing! HOLY APA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Last but not least, was Luke Williams..Hearts and flowers….Clearly I did NOT read these in order. BUT who cares, I only read them like 5 or 6 times. HOLLA!!!!!!!!!!!
I am not a total “Re-Read Whore”. I did read 2 new books, that were freaking RIDIC!!
Try. Every Try?? Well I did. Jesey and I read this together. HOLY HELL!!!!!! I have read some good threesomes, 2 guys/girl, two girls/guy, 3 guys/girl (YES YES that too). But never, have I ever read a M/M story. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about it. So I said, hmmmm, let me TRY. And I did……OH EM EFFIN GEEEE!!!! Tate and Logan in this book are so hot. I was floored. Aside from the fact that it was a serious turn on to read about 2 men getting it on (Ladies don’t roll your eyes at me, don’t knock it till you TRIED it) the storyline was so entertaining and different. HIGHLY recommend this book.
Rumor Has It by Elisabeth Grace….LOVED LOVED LOVED!!!!! I actually read it twice. What’s wrong with me? It was that good. Such a different book, Hip-Hop stars meets girl next door. Mason Nash is dreamy, and hot…and the story was angsty, and you fall in love with Mason and Ellie instantly. Highly recommend this one. Lots of Schmexy stuff going on here….
I ain’t got NONE!!! Why??? Because all the books I am reading are so damn Good, and HOT and Schmexy!! Thank god!!! HOLLA!!!!!!!!!!
Hope you enjoyed Amy, Jesey and Trish’s Bookgasms and Blueballs this month. Till next time….
