Today we’re doing something new to go along with this latest reading order guide! I’m going to start a “read-along” for book #1 as per the request of some of our fellow readers. I’ve had this book for awhile, and had all intentions to read it soon, when Sharona recommended it:
Sharona: I have a recommendation for you. I just finished “The Awakening” Series by Michele Zurlo. The first book is called “Letting Go”. I chose it because it has 5 stars and great reviews on Amazon. It also has awards.
It is similar to Fifty Shades. The stories and the characters are great in the series. The series is an erotic soap opera of unconventional lifestyles and relationships with good bouts of love related angst.
… and now that I received LucyLou’s “group request”, how can I possibly choose anything else? Guess what just moved to the top of my TBR?
Lucy emailed me saying:
“… but Listen, some of us gals have a request, Pretty Please. We hope that you will read “Letting Go” by Michele Zurlo and post it (Maybe for a book read-along) ….Hint….Hint ;) I also listed the series reading order for you and was wondering if you would put it in you reading Order Site? On your comments section several of us wrote:
LucyLou: “I think my favorite BDSM author is Michele Zurlo. Her books are fun, romantic, angsty and her characters are real.”
Michele: “LucyLou, I LOVE Michele Zurlo’s book Letting Go! Maryse, I don’t know if you’ll ever take my advise again, but Letting Go is a great read. It’s got BDSM in it, but it’s really romantic and a FUN read. Kind of BDSM lite.”
LucyLou: “Michele, Your right! Michele Zurlo’s Letting Go Series is BDSM lite and so sexy HOT, HOT, HOT!!! Definately Mommy Porn.. he he he ”
Michele: I think we should totally try to convince Maryse to read Letting Go! I’d love to read her take on Jonas!”
Angie H.: “Yes to Letting Go! I really liked this one, Jonas, in particular. There were some sensational/gimmicky details, but I could overlook those to get to all of the twists and turns of the main couple’s relationship. Their story is complicated, a little angsty and very very sexy. Did I mention that Jonas is super hot? ”
Kathy: “I loved Letting Go. Jonas was such a great book boyfriend for me”
Cheri: “Who wrote Letting Go? Is this the book you are talking about with Jonas?”
Angie H.: “All this talk about Jonas is making me want to re-read Letting Go (Michele Zurlo)! Grrrrr, there goes my TBR list, but Jonas is so worth it “
Okay, I’m in guys. Let’s do this, Lucy! Letting Go is what I’m “currently reading”
“WOOHOO! Can’t wait to read it again!!! It will be twice as fun reading it with all our reading pals. Thanks, Maryse”
