Beyond Eden Review

Beyond Eden by Kele Moon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I enjoyed this book greatly!  Many of my book group friends won't be surprised as this style of BDSM is right up my alley.  I do agree with several of the others who indicated Ms. Moon needs to work on her writing technique.  There were many times I became lost because I didn't know who was saying what.  I had to back track and re-read those.  It was enough times that I actually noted which is not a good sign since I'm the least picky about technical writing and grammar when it comes to my pleasure books.  Ms. Moon, if you are reading this, I recommend a strong editor or some classes to work on your writing flow.  Jarring readers out of the storyline can make or break an author, no matter how talented with alluring story lines.

I LOVED this book and will probably end up reading it over and over again - the naughty parts I like.  The S&M here was breathtaking.  Paul is a painslut.  The descriptions of each scene was mind …

Guilty Pleasures

Image
Guilty Pleasures by Kitty Thomas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Ms. Thomas, you are a crazy woman and I fear for the people around you.  If you can come up with intense training and crazy ass punishments like in this book, then you are a sadistic if clever bitch.

Now that I've railed at Ms. Thomas, I'll try to put into words how I feel.  This book was intensely overwhelming for me.  I was warned I'd never like massage therapy again.  Fortunately, I go to females only so I won't have this issue.  This book was bad for me in many ways.  I was angry at Vivian at first.  She is such a dumb bitch.  She played the trophy wife.  She could have done so much more. 

Michael, ah, Michael - the loving dumbass husband.  Was I all surprised at the ending?  No, if the ending didn't go as I expected, I probably would have written a nasty email (okay, maybe several) to Ms. Thomas.  (BTW, I guessed the ending after the first chapter but my suspicion was confirmed by the locked door.)  FUC…

Updating Goodreads

I'm on this kick to have everything updated.  I'm removed all duplicates.  YAY!  However, I have may books which have not been reviewed.  I've rated it, but not written a review.  I'm going back to every book and try to get it done by the end of this year.  It's not looking good.  I have 1401 books that need to be reviewed.  With 27 weeks left in the year, that means I have to do on average, 52 books a week.  I'm going to be out of town in October for 3 weeks.  Hmm.  I guess I need to get my ass into gear.

BDSM Gangbang Challenge Y11Q2 Rules

Please remember the rules:

1. You must sign up by Midnight on April 18th and make your participant list post on that board.

2. You will have from Midnight on April 18th through Midnight April 30th to chose your picks for the other participants. You may make your selections on any basis you like - perhaps you've already read the book and recommend it, or you've heard good things about it, or you think it's a book which that particular participant would like, or the cover/blurb makes you hot and wet. There is no wrong recommendation LOL

You may chose 1, 2, or 3 books. Since this will not be a huge challenge if you only want a picker to select ONE choice please note that in the participants list in your post (this is for all those that like to be told what to do and have their choice taken away- you know who you are!)

3. When you send your picks do so by PM through Goodreads. Do not post your picks on a board. It is strongly recommended to friend all those invol…
