I am an avid reader and mom of 4 great kids. In my spare time you can always find me reading a book. I love to read . I have read alot of books . I use to read all paperbacks and hard cover books , then about 1 1/2 yrs ago I bought a Nook Color E -Reader and things have not been the same since . In the first yr of owning my Nook I read roughly about 200 Books . YES it is true . My E- Reader was the best thing I EVER bought for myself and I am so Happy that I made the decision to buy one . Now I own a Kindle Fire HD and I Love it even more then my Nook Color. As far as What I like to read . I like All kinds of Genres . Some of my favorite ones are Contemporary Romance , Young Adult , Paranomal , True Stories, and Erotica . To me a great book involves a Great story line , if A book can hook me in the first few pages I am in heaven and will read it through . I have not found many books that I have not followed through with and read . I do LOVE a great love story in a book , one that makes me smile , laugh when something is funny , makes my heart race, my heart stop , makes me cry . I love when there is a happy ending . I also love Alpha males , the ones that got attitude , hot looking, masculine , can keep their woman in line , protective , possessive , but also have a big heart at the same time .
Steel and Lace: The Complete Series - Adriane Leigh I received a copy of this from Adriane in return for an honest review . I have seen a lot of people compare this to 50 Shades of Grey . I do not think this resembles it at all . This story is different . There is no BDSM in this book . Yes there is a billionaire , semi controlling , alpha Male in it , BUT it has no comparison to 50 Shades . Carter is a possessive, crazy, demanding, infuriating, overwhelming character, rich and successful, controlling and dominant, did I say controlling , but that is what we love about our Book Men . He knows what he wants and gets what he wants no matter the cost. When Carter meets Eva for the first time he knows She is what he WANTS and he will stop at nothing to get her . "It's us. You and me, always."Eva was a great character in this story , she was feisty, semi level-headed , I agree that the relationship between Eva and Carter moved way to fast pasted but She had some reserve and tried to slow things down a bit . Which in turn ended up in heated arguments, and fighting , but great make up sex lol . I think the “I love you’s where thrown out there way to quick, I would of like to have seen the relationship with these two build a little more before love you’s and marriage within a month of being together , But without the I love you’s this story was a great story full of lots of sex, dominant , control and a building of a relationship. I feel this book was a little rushed , BUT I also know it was put together from 4 short novella’s into one book . It is a great story full of sex, sex, heart break, anger, fighting, making up, and everything in between . I LOVED Cate, The whole Scene with her and pregnancy tests had me cracking up laughing ….
