We may laugh, we may cry, we may curse. It may be thought-provoking or a much-needed no-brainer after an intense work-week. Freaky Fridays are all about a change of pace, oddities, or simply off-topic posts. So let’s get started!
So, 50 Shades of Grey was all the rage! It seems as though you heard about it on every channel, passed by numerous displays, and all of your girlfriends were giggling about it (or scoffing and barking about how offensive and trashy it is). I even went to a 50 Shades book party–and that was a blast! Now that the rage has died down some, I want to chat about this and some other sexy books/authors. Some of these are teeny bopper books–don’t judge! I’m a big fan of the teen read section–hell real life is hectic enough! Sometimes I just want to rest my brain and read some easy-flowing-sexy-fun stuff!
50 Shades of Grey by E.L James: EL JAMES BOOKS LINK Well, alrighty then! This sucker was SEXY. I must say, not only was this a hot, steamy read, but it was a damn how-to book! LOL! It had been ages since I’ve read a book this explicit–yet, I couldn’t put it down. I was a feign for more, more, more and couldn’t wait to get to the end! I’m no prude by far, but golllllll-leee! I often found myself grinning like some freak while reading. Shortly thereafter finishing the series, I became pregnant. THAT. IS. ALL.
Side note: I HATED the movie. That was not Christian in my head! And, instead of coming to the movies, this should’ve went straight to Cinemax. The big screen didn’t do it justice! I would also like to say that I started Grey By E.L. James and it sucks. They should’ve left well-enough alone. It’s clipped, and non-dimensional.
When college senior Anastasia Steele steps in for her sick roommate to interview prominent businessman Christian Grey for their campus paper, little does she realize the path her life will take. Christian, as enigmatic as he is rich and powerful, finds himself strangely drawn to Ana, and she to him. Though sexually inexperienced, Ana plunges headlong into an affair — and learns that Christian’s true sexual proclivities push the boundaries of pain and pleasure.
Author: Eric Jerome Dickey: ERIC JEROME DICKEY BOOKS-LINK Dude has to be some type of pervert. But I mean this in a complimentary way! I couldn’t narrow this down to a specific book, because I’ve read tons of them! Some are certainly better than others but they have one main theme, and that’s SEXY! Some have interesting plots and twists and turns, and some are just down-right doing the dirty-dirty!
Easy Series by Tammara Webber: TAMMARA WEBBER BOOKS LINK I picked this one up as well as Unbreakable, the 2nd book, in the El-Cheapo section of the bookstore recently (teeny bopper alert). This book is not so explicit, and has a sweet, genuine love story! I’m not yet done with the 2nd book, but I love it so far. And don’t be put off by the fact that it’s a teen book, it reads very well, and is not too juvenile for us adult folks!
“Easy” by Tammara Webber is an intriguing book about two college students finding love against the odds brought on by their individual trust issues. After Jacqueline’s boyfriend of three years dumps her, she is shocked to find herself attracted to Lucas, a “bad boy” who rescues her from an attempted rape. Since she is also drawn to Landon, her Economics tutor who helps her avoid failing the class, Jacqueline must decide who to trust as secrets about each guy comes to her attention. “Easy” is an extremely entertaining and enjoyable novel that demonstrates that people are not always what they seem, in both good and bad ways.
Gabriel’s Rapture by Sylvain Reynard: SYLVAIN REYNARD BOOKS LINK This book is about the taboo student-teacher relationship. Every since Mary Kay Letourneau came into our lives, it seems as though society has had a forbidden obsession with these stories. While disgusting and alarming in real life, it makes for an interesting read! And since this follows a college-story, it’s not as unsettling. I really enjoyed this one!
Professor Gabriel Emerson has embarked on a passionate, yet clandestine affair with his former student, Julia Mitchell. Sequestered on a romantic holiday in Italy, he tutors her in the sensual delights of the body and the raptures of sex. But when they return, their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics, and a jealous ex-lover. When Gabriel is confronted by the university administration, will he succumb to Dante’s fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever? In Gabriel’s Rapture, the brilliant sequel to the wildly successful debut novel, Gabriel’s Inferno, Sylvain Reynard weaves an exquisite love story that will touch the reader’s mind, body, and soul, forever.
Anyone else enjoy some sexy reads? What are your favorite books/authors? Have you read any of the above books?
It’s going to be a crisp weekend in the Show Me State! Hope it’s warm where you are, or you can cuddle up with a steamy book or your honey this weekend! I’m likely to do both! xo!
