Okay that one there to the left? Pure Abandon by Jeannine Colette has been on my TBR list since it was released, and my own fellow readers here have been LOVING it, so I’m in. I’m 25% in, in fact and have been thoroughly “into it” from the very first page. Yep. YES!! This one is FOR ME!!! :D Heartache and angst, here I come!!! :D

And some of our fellow readers have left their own latest recommendations this week (some of the new releases now that are “tried and true” by our crew) and some oldies but goodies that are still rocking worlds. So take a look. The ones from this list that I’d *almost* squirrel for, if I wasn’t already very much into the one I’m reading now? Alex (eeeeeep!!! A horror story that is calling my name!! Ew. Ummm…. no. I don’t want any creepiness calling my name. That’s a nightmare in itself). LOL! The Golden Compass ’cause one of my new favorite authors went CRAZY for this series, and I know it’s really popular, so I’m intrigued. AND!! Anarchy Found – Alpha Lincoln by JA Huss is the one that is calling me the most!! HOLY MOLY that blurb (I’m thinking he’s not a superhero… he’s the villain) and the reviews are phenomenal!! You’ll see (I posted ‘em below).

Oh and… LOL! Funny story.

Maryse: How many times has this happened to you? Tee hee!! I wanted to buy and read this book so bad and it’s on super-sale today, so I one-clicked it… *whoops* I’ve had it since 2012, you say? Maybe I should get on it! :P  (P.S. it’s Alex by Adam J Nicolai)

JM: Haha! Definitely been there! :D

Nikki: Waaaayyy too many times!!

Lee: I am laughing SO hard.. Because 1- 5 times, this happens to me.. aaaaaaand 2012?? It’s meant to be Maryse, drop everything and read it :P :P

P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).

P.P.S. Don’t have a Kindle? No problem! Amazon offers various free Kindle apps and a free Kindle Cloud reader for any and ALL of us to use. You can either use the free Kindle App for your smartphone, tablet, AND your desktop computer (just like you’re using a Kindle, but right through your web browser <— No need to download anything! :D )

When his roommate, Cassie, begs him to be her pretend date in front of her meddling family, he begrudgingly agrees to help. He doesn’t anticipate being enchanted by the countryside, the colorful cast of characters, or her sexy and brooding straight brother…
  6. Indigo Road by RJ Jones <— M/M ROMANCE BEST FRIENDS ON A ROAD TRIP ALERT! “Josh has always considered himself straight—except for that one time in college—so when he and Alex are living in such close proximity on the road, he’s unsure what these new feelings mean.”
  7. Leap of Faith by Cheyenne Meadows <— WHOA THIS IS DIFFERENT… HE & HIS CHILD ARE THE SLAVES & SHE NOW “OWNS” THEM… “…she sets eyes on a man and child in shackles. His gaze compels her to step up and do something. Before she knows it, she’s the new owner of the slave pair.”

He’s an escort. ;)I’m rolling in the dough. Life is perfect, just the way it is. Until I meet her. She changes everything. She makes me want more than I’ve ever wanted for myself and she believes in me. But she also thinks I sell insurance.

  11. DEEP by Jaine Diamond <— SHE JOINS THE MILITARY BUT… “When she reports to Station Six amid wild rumors of erotic hazing rituals and sadomasochistic games, she’s not prepared for any of the rumors to be true—or for her insatiable attraction to Sergeant “Catch” Durant, her tattooed rebel of a trainer…”

  14. Blood Kiss: Black Dagger Legacy by J.R. Ward <— Theresa enjoyed the latest BDB book! “Just finished Blood Kiss. Good spin off. Same world, some with the brothers but a slower, more romance, less intense read. Not the tragic sad ugly cry stories of the brothers. So I recommend you give it a try. The Beast will be an ugly cry!”
  15. Falling From the Sky (Gravity Book 2) by Sarina Bowen <— Jean is TOTALLY into this one! “Falling From the Sky (Gravity #2), By Sarina Bowen… Loving this book and Hank “Hazardous” Lazarus!!!!”

I PROMISE YOU WON’T REGRET IT. EACH BOOK IS GREAT, THE CHARACTERS AWESOME, FUNNY, AND GRITTY!!!!!!!!!! WHAT’S NOT ROMANTIC ABOUT A LYKAE BITING HIS CLAWS OFF TO SATISFY HIS WOMAN????? SOOOOOOOOOO ROMANTIC.” And MichelleS agrees! “Ela – oh man! you would have to mention Declan – that was one of THE best of that series. Regin and her Berserker? Oh man! That one is a re-read for me. That, and Bowen and Mariketta, and Lachlan and Emma. The good old days.
  17. Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark Book 1) by Krseley Cole <— ON SUPER-SALE RIGHT NOW!! Thanks Ela, for finding us this bargain!!! MichelleS says: “Immortals After Dark – best ever for spunky girl meets über alpha. It’s like the amazing race for PNR. Crazy good. I adore Nix (aka Nucking Futs Nix). And werewolves from Scotland? Swoon. Seriously, it’s a must read.”
  18. Alex Adam J Nicolai <— HORROR GHOST STORY ON SUPER-SALE!!!! And I totally one-clicked it and realized… ummm. I already bought it. Back in 2012. LOL!

She says: “OMG, The Golden Compass and the rest of His Dark Materials (Subtle Knife, Amber Spyglass) is seriously some of the most beautiful writing I’ve ever read. I re-read them every year. They’re so beautiful and I really am offended that daemons don’t exist in real life. Seriously, why is this not a thing??”
  21. ROOK and RONIN OMNIBUS EDITION: TRAGIC~MANIC~PANIC – The Complete Trilogy by J.A. HUSS <— OHHHHHH EMMMM GEEEE!!! And at a ROCK BOTTOM price right now. YES PLEASE!!!! :D Amy found this deal for us!! Thanks Amy!!! :D
  22. Torn Series Set (Books: 1 – 10) by Pamela Ann <— 10 BOOKS IN THE SERIES, BUNDLED & BARGAIN PRICED!!! AND AND Amy found us this one! “Pamela Ann’s Torn series is available in a set … through the holiday season, something like 10 books. I haven’t read either of those series (even though they’ve been sitting in my library forever!) but I had to share those deals!”
  23. Unleashed by Shadows (By Moonlight Book 10) by Nancy Gideon <— Theresa recommends this one! “definetely check out Nancy Gideon. Just finished her last book in the moonlight series. Not much chatter but I really like that series and i have read all the big popular ones and this is in the same class for me. Max swooooooon.”
  24. Water for Elephants: A Novel by Sara Gruen <— Well… now THAT is a crazy “bargain price”. Lower than what we normally consider the lowest bargain price. How’d they come up with that as a sale price? No matter… I’m in! LOL!!

    For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free ebooks deal —>

  2. AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as AUDIOBOOKS AT A BARGAIN-PRICE!<—Audiobooks for ebook super-sale prices. I’m thrilled with that, and what’s fun is you can flip flop from reading it, to listening to it without losing your spot… This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL! (This is the “Whispersync” thingie).
  3. The Girl in 6E by A.E. Torre <— Cheryl suggests this audiobook! “The narrator for The Girl In 6e series is excellent and quite honestly reading the book would have dragged somewhat because there really is not any romance and the story is very descriptive about obsessions with killing and different statistics with the world of online sex. It’s definitely a unique story. Reminds me of the SLOW-build relationship between Dex and Perry minus the obsession with killing. ;)

Somehow I missed that Forbidden by CD Reiss is out and that it is actually a bundle of her Songs of Perdition series. I had read Kick and Use and was DYING for more to the story. Forbidden, contains both Kick and Use AND, AND… the last part of the story called Break. So excited!!!!!! It’s a one-click, drop everything and read CD Reiss immediately day!! Pure Abandon sounds so awesome too!!!! So much to read, too little time…

Ela December 4, 2015 at 2:55 PM

Maryse, The Darkest Descension (Breaking Insanity #3) by Courtney Lane was also released. The third book to The Sordid Promise, which I absolutely LOVED.

Amy December 4, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Speaking of JA Huss, there is an omnibus of her Rook and Ronin series for .99. Also, Pamela Ann’s Torn series is available in a set for .99 through the holiday season, something like 10 books. I haven’t read either of those series (even though they’ve been sitting in my library forever!) but I had to share those deals!

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 3:31 PM

YAY!!! Thank you Ela!! :D

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 3:31 PM

Ohhh Marina I added it. :D

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 3:40 PM


Okay added the Rook and Ronin, now adding The Torn series. :D YAY YOU GUYS!!

Fabi December 4, 2015 at 4:28 PM

guuuys – you’re killing me here. I’m still a-one-clicking away. Wouldn’t it be cool if we had a reading super-power? That way, when a dozen books come out that we want to read “now”, we could use our reading super-power to get them read immediately.

Ela December 4, 2015 at 4:34 PM
Grey December 4, 2015 at 5:04 PM

Hiya… Almost done with the Indebted series… wowsa… will I want to stay in the dark after this one is the question! Pretty sure I’m going to go with Blood Kiss, but one never knows, that Anarchy Found is calling my name pretty loudy (read Ela with her caps loud *giggle* smooches girl!*)

What’s everyone up to tonight?

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 5:09 PM

OMG fabi!!! I used to think my super-power would be “jumping” in and out of areas in seconds…

but now I’m thinking reading speed powers. DEFINITELY THAT. BUT!!!! I’d have to have the ability to still experience the intensity of emotions even if I speed read like a mad-super-hero.

Ela December 4, 2015 at 5:09 PM

Smooches Grey! I have my work holiday party tonight so I’ll be stuffing my belly with shrimp and stuffed shrimp and what ever will fit after those are devoured. I’m reading Misconduct but after Indebted it feels too “light”.

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 5:10 PM

I’m reading Pure Abandon!! :D

Then on to Anarchy I think… that one is CALLING me!!! :D

Amy December 4, 2015 at 5:47 PM

Pure Abandon? Huh.

*bites lip*

Fabi December 4, 2015 at 5:58 PM

“still experience the intensity of emotions even if I speed read like a mad-super-hero.” of course Amy! that’s what makes it a super-power

Ela, that’s why speed reading doesn’t work. I can and do speed read most things. But I can’t savor the emotions if I do it with escape lit. The better the book is the slower I read it! LOL

Fabi December 4, 2015 at 6:00 PM

oops – Sorry Maryse. You sounded just like Amy for a minute. *giggle*

that up there ^^^ should say “of course Maryse!” :-)

Lauren December 4, 2015 at 6:30 PM

That literally JUST happened to me….1-clicked the Rook & Ronan series, only to find I’d already bought it on March 29, 2014!!!

Cheryl December 4, 2015 at 6:32 PM

I loved Pure Abandon! Not as gut-twisty angsty as Arsen, but still very good.

Ok, Amy what’s with the lip biting?!

Cheryl December 4, 2015 at 6:42 PM

I loved Pure Abandon! Not as gut-twisty angsty as Arsen, but still very good.

Ok, Amy what’s with the lip biting?!

Fabi, I’m the same way, when I’m really enjoying a book I read slowly and even cover the kindle screen with my hand, when I’m getting close to the end, and uncover sentence by sentence as I go. Although, right now with the Percocet I’m reading pretty slowly. ;)

Think I already purchased Rook & Ronin too!

Cheryl December 4, 2015 at 6:43 PM

Ok, how the heck did I repeat my comment. *damn drugs*

Lisa December 4, 2015 at 6:53 PM

Cheryl hope you are OK and recovering well. One of my biggest fears…particularly because I was never sun safe in my youth and regret it now. Be well.

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 6:53 PM

LOL Fabi…

when I read that I was all… wow Amy is SO intense!!! I AGREE!!!

And then I realized it was me. You’re right… birds of a feather… ;)

I LOVE YOU GUYS! Just sayin’

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 6:54 PM


Amy wants to read it…

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 6:54 PM

LOL Cheryl!!!

Your comments make me giggle so hard! *snuggles Cheryl* :D

Lisa December 4, 2015 at 7:42 PM

Maryse I’m reading Some Sort of Crazy at the moment and its making me giggle with glee. So much so I woke up the grump next to me last night.
Highly recommended for a sweet sexy funny read…..especially for those who need to refresh the palate after a heavy/dark/angsty read. Plus Miles is a hottie.

Cheryl December 4, 2015 at 7:42 PM

Awww, thanks Maryse. :)

Amy December 4, 2015 at 7:58 PM

I…um…already read Pure Abandon.

So yeaaaahhhhh…I’m biting my lip. Like Maryse did after watching Princess Bride. That should say it all.

And by the way, take anything I say right now with a grain of salt ’cause I’m in a p!ssy mood…I’m on a nutrition plan (I refuse to say the “d” word) which involves no alcohol and no sugar for the next 10 days. I’m freaking the f$&k out right now.

Amy December 4, 2015 at 8:01 PM

Whoa, whoa, whoa…what happened Cheryl?!?

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 8:09 PM

Ruh roh…. me ‘n the Princess Bride were not friends…

and so..

Ruh roh. *sigh*

Shall continue… I’ll let you know if Amy should bite it off altogether. LOL!

Amy December 4, 2015 at 8:10 PM

Okay, I just checked out the other post and Oh MAN, Cheryl!! That sucks. Hope your feeling better soon. *big snuggle hug* <—– while avoiding your owie, of course. ;)

And I would offer you a drink but since I can't have any then I'm not being the bartender…y'all are on your own. :P Besides, painkillers are a wonderful thing, right?

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 8:11 PM

Oh AMY!!!!!

*snuggles Amy*

I am sooooooo sorry. I always get a kick out of the centennials that reach 105 years old and say the secret to their longevity is two fingers of scotch a day. LOL!!!

Ummm and just to ask… what is a finger of scotch? Or two, for that matter?

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 8:12 PM



Per Amy’s comment of pain killers. LOL!

After all… Cheryl is repeating herself and has NO shame. LOVE IT!

Amy December 4, 2015 at 8:12 PM

Oh you go bite your own lip off, missy!!

Amy December 4, 2015 at 8:14 PM

Then you can borrow some of Cheryl’s painkillers. *pblttttt!!!!*

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 8:14 PM




Cheryl December 4, 2015 at 8:22 PM

Yeh, my younger years of lying in the sun without sunscreen and using baby oil and iodine have caught up to me. The good news is the area is high on my forehead and I have bangs, so shouldn’t be that noticeable. Besides, it’s not like I’m a spring chicken or model for a living!! *snort*

No alcohol or sugar- I’ll take my owie over that!! I at least have good drugs AND peanut butter cups!!

So I take it you didn’t enjoy Pure Abandon Amy?

Amy December 4, 2015 at 8:25 PM

*pulls on gray and black striped hoodie*

*aims paintball gun at Maryse’s thigh*

Now what were you saying, dear?


Amy December 4, 2015 at 8:27 PM

Peanut butter cups?? Really Cheryl?!?

*aims paintball gun at Cheryl’s thigh*

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 8:34 PM

Ooooh playing hard ball. Paintball that is. I LIKE IT!!! *waggles eyebrows*


Ruh roh Cheryl. I hope you like paintball pain…

Cheryl December 4, 2015 at 8:35 PM

Ewww Amy without alcohol & sugar is MEAN.

*aims candy cannon filled with peanut butter cups at Amy*

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 9:02 PM

She needs ‘em, Cheryl. I can tell. :P

Amy December 4, 2015 at 9:29 PM

You guys can’t tell crap, ya brats!!!!

Go ahead Cheryl…fire that candy cannon and watch what happen!! Paintballs to the thighs hurt! You’ve no idea how on edge I am right now…

But I DO like that you caught that reference, Maryse. ;)

*sits back and polishes paintball gun scope*

Cheryl December 4, 2015 at 9:34 PM

No alcohol AND no sugar, what kind of crazy a$$ diet is that?!! *mumbles and shakes head while eating candy and popping a pain pill*

Cheryl December 4, 2015 at 9:35 PM

Oh and I got the Badger reference too! *pulls on paintball protective clothing*

Grey December 4, 2015 at 9:48 PM

My goodness… you girls are being naughty tonight.

I caught the Badger reference too… bad girls! Love it!

Pure Abandon… wasn’t Arsen for me either… *ducks and covers*

Cheryl, *Here’s a Percocet, rubs your back… now here’s a Colace lol*

Amy… girl are you crazy… no chocolate or alcohol for 10 days, in December?!?!? Gah… *shiver* just no…

Maryse, I know right, I love the little old ladies that say stuff like that. Like give me my booze and leave me alone! I can’t wait to be old and crotchety, smack people with my cane *giggle* We could all be roomies in the nursing home together LOL!

Amy December 4, 2015 at 9:49 PM

It’s an AWFUL diet Cheryl, but at least it’s healthy. *sigh* I want my formal dress to be a little less snug in a couple of weeks, and I refused to get the next size up when I bought it last week. Because I’m a vain idiot.

*grumbles at Cheryl* Hope she confuses her pain pills and candy and ends up chewing the pills…

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 9:57 PM


Susan December 4, 2015 at 9:57 PM

I cannot believe y’all still have not read Rook and Ronin. I read everything from J.A.Huss. She is that good and Rook and Ronin is where it all started for me.

Amy December 4, 2015 at 10:02 PM

Yay Cheryl! You caught the reference as well…and Grey did, too!! :D I loved that book SO much even though it mangled my heart a bit. Or maybe *because* it mangled my heart. ;)

*sigh* Maryse used the right word for that book – amazing.

Amy December 4, 2015 at 10:02 PM

*giggle* Maryse, Colace is a laxative. LOL!!!!

Theresa December 4, 2015 at 10:08 PM

No one had read Swett Ruin yet?

Amy December 4, 2015 at 10:11 PM

Susan…I have no idea why I haven’t read it yet, especially with how many good things I have heard about it. I’m surprised you didn’t nail us with some R&R peanuts to make your point! ;)

Cheryl December 4, 2015 at 10:58 PM

Grey- yeh that is the downside of pain pills *pops Colace*

Amy, formal dress? what’s the occasion? Now I understand the diet…

Maryse December 4, 2015 at 11:34 PM

Colace huh? *snort* apparently i don’t need it… yet. LOL!!!!! I dunno if that’s TMI?

Lisa December 5, 2015 at 2:58 AM

OK finished Some Sort of Crazy (perfect sweet book) and thinking I have to finally pull up my big girl knickers and read Badger. I’m scared its going to hurt. Is it a stand alone?? I can’t do heart aching pain and a cliff hanger but I’m feeling kinda left out with all the paint ball references and stuff.

Its 108 degrees F here today…the thought of putting on formal wear to do Christmas parties is making me nauseous. I swear I’ve lost kilo’s in sweltering sweat today…I know TMI.

Amy December 5, 2015 at 12:29 PM

As for TMI…I don’t know abou the rest of y’all, but for me there’s not a whole lot that is TMI. Just sayin’. ;)

Cheryl, it’s a winter ball for hubby’s work. And hey! I’ve lost 2.7 pounds since Thursday!!! :D But the nutrition plan still sucks…is it bad that it’s not even 10:00 in the morning and I want a dirty martini and a crap-ton of sugar?

Amy December 5, 2015 at 12:44 PM


READ BADGER!! Just read it. Now. *makes shooing motion* Go on, pull up your big girl knickers and one-click it. I’ll have Manny ready for you to snuggle.

It’s a standalone so no worries there. ;)

fabi December 5, 2015 at 12:54 PM

Amy, is sugar and alcohol the only restriction? No carb restriction? Just curious. :-)

Anarchy Found just got dark (I think). I wasn’t expecting it and I still have shivers. I hope it doesn’t go down that dark hole.

Amy December 5, 2015 at 4:10 PM

Fabi, carbs are restricted but spread throughout the day, and the meal plans are VERY specific, down to the number of asparagus spears I can have. It was made up by my trainer for me, and considering my trainer competes in MMA and has to cut weight quite often, I figured it should work. It’s heavy in protein, has a fairly decent amount of veggies, very little fruit (only blueberries in the morning), no sugar, no alcohol, and only water or green tea to drink. It sucks but seems to be working already.

Yay me. *gives weak clap*

I want a freaking drink.

MichelleS December 5, 2015 at 6:37 PM

You lost me at “my trainer” and green tea. I’m more the “my hubby” and hot chocolate kind of girl. Ha!! But maybe it’s what I need. After the holidays.

I never read Badger. I didn’t read Rook & Ronin either. Was that the model & photographer one??

Cheryl December 5, 2015 at 6:59 PM

Good luck Amy. At least at the ball you can drink!! ;)

Lisa December 5, 2015 at 7:37 PM

Amy…. yes I totally tuned out after ‘my trainer’ and ‘MMA’. Visions of Remy swimming through my imagination. But ‘asparagus spears’ brought me back to earth with a thud. Just yuk. I’d definately lose weight on THAT plan.

And you’re gonna hurl Manny at my head *ducking behind sofa* but I went to open Badger in my kindle….with my finger hovering over the cover…….then chickened out and opened Sins of Sevin next to it. At 50% and its ok.ish. Nah. Its actually frustrating.

Maryse December 5, 2015 at 7:39 PM

*Manny thumps Lisa’s head*

Tessa December 5, 2015 at 7:41 PM

Amy, parts of that diet I like, except only water or tea to drink and no fruit? I’d go nuts! I’d start swallowing spoonfuls of salt in retaliation. The only fruit is blueberry? Seriously? Did you pick the fruit at least? Because I could handle one fruit if it were something other than blueberry.

We’ll have a salted caramel and martinis for when you’re done.

Tessa December 5, 2015 at 7:44 PM

Oh, finished the Star-crossed series! *grins* I adored it. Just what I love in YA PNR. *spins* Now I’m reading Final Debt. So far, not as antsy as the rest. Weird, huh? I’m not even on Google yet looking up some weird, scary torture devices.

Fabi December 5, 2015 at 9:06 PM

I want to make sure I don’t mislead y’all with Anarchy Found. I’m at 65% and if the scene I just finished doesn’t tie in logically with the story, if it was just thrown in for the … I don’t know for what…then I’m going to be disappointed with this book/author. It started out fantastic, so I still have my fingers crossed that the last part of the book will make up for this middle part.

Lisa December 5, 2015 at 9:27 PM

*rubs back of head*
I’m reading it next. Pinky promise.

Lisa December 5, 2015 at 9:32 PM

And Amy. I’m kind of in awe that you can stick with a diet (seriously no sugar or alcohol) at this time of year. Go girl. You’ll look and feel fab for your effort.

I’m off to a Christmas pool party today where almost everyone going is into bike riding, marathon running and fitting into doll sized clothing. Yay.
I totally missed out on the fitness gene. (It got replaced with an insatiable reading gene.) I’m taking Manny with me btw Maryse.

Niki December 6, 2015 at 2:10 AM

I finally received Illuminae in hardcover from Amazon!!!

I didn’t get the first one I ordered so they sent me a replacement for free!!! Yay I’m excited to start this one!!!

Cheryl December 6, 2015 at 10:29 AM

Jean, I started reading the first book in the Gravity series. It’s good so far, and pretty light which is what my fuzzy brain needs right now. Not sure if will stick with the entire series right now or skip to something else. ;)

I wish the new Vi Keeland book was out already. That’s what I need right now!

Speaking of Vi Keeland, anyone else get this free book a month offer?

Emily December 6, 2015 at 10:42 AM

I read Blindsided by TC Matson 2 weeks ago and I still am missing me some Levi! I need book 2 ASAP. I’m totally fangirling over this book. I even got to talk to TC! I’ve never had an author message me back.

I may be a little slow but I found Bad Things by RK Lilley and read the whole series in a week. Tristan…Oh yes! A love story wrapped into a heartbreak. I cried. I laughed. I gasped. It’s been out for a little bit, but YES!

Now I’m onto SC Stephens Thoughtless Series. I’ve put it off hearing how angsty it is. Wish me luck!

Cheryl December 6, 2015 at 11:40 AM

Emily, I’m so jealous of you reading the Thoughtless series for the first time- I loved it. The first book is more angsty than the rest. Enjoy!

Fabi December 6, 2015 at 1:13 PM

Just finished Anarchy Found. Parts of it were 5 star for me. Overall, I’d have to say 3.5 stars.

Allison, I kept waiting and expecting the part you wanted me to come back and talk about…but, I finished and I have no idea which scene you meant. ???

Cristina December 6, 2015 at 1:33 PM

Maryse I loved Pute Abandon! Those types of stories just rip my heart in two! The ending was expected, but still broke my heart. Reckless Abandon was a really great read too! I can’t wait to read your book review of Pure Abandon. :-) Have you checked out Ground Rules Rewritten yet?

Amy December 6, 2015 at 2:50 PM

Aw come on, you guys…green tea is good. Especially if you make a pitcher of it and squeeze in the juice of an orange, a lemon and a lime, then sip it throughout the day. All of this dieting crap simply because my a$$, hips and thighs decided they weren’t quite warm enough and decided to add some insulation. Jerks. I can’t WAIT for the ball…alcohol and fat-laden/carb-laden food! :D

Oh, and Spanx are a wonderful invention. ;) Except when you take them off and everything goes *blubbub* as the insulation spills out. *snort*

Amy December 6, 2015 at 3:01 PM

MichelleS…WOMAN!!!! You haven’t read Badger?!? Oh man, I don’t know if we can be friends anymore. Not until you read it. Even though I still luffs ya. ;) And the R&R series IS about the model and photographer.

Lisa…seriously?? You got that close and chickened out? No wonder Manny’s flipper is sore now…you deserved a really strong thump for that one. *shakes head* You and MichelleS are relegated to the Manny-less corner of the blankie fort until you’ve both read Badger. No more Manny until you both read it.

Tessa…salted caramel martinis?? YEAH!!!!!! And wasn’t the Star-Crossed series fun? Perfect YA PNR goodness.

Amy December 6, 2015 at 3:24 PM

Emily, I am absolutely GREEN with envy! You not only read Tristan and Danika for the first time (GAH! Love that series!) but you are getting to read Thoughtless for the first time. I’m giddy for you! :D

Where is everyone? *pouts*

Emily December 6, 2015 at 4:17 PM

Cheryl I drug my feet worried about just how angsty it is. I don’t do good with those kinds of books. They make me…well, they make me angsty LOL

Amy, I FLOVED Tristan and Danika. I’ve never grieved over a fictional character as I am Tristan. I instantly wanted to read it all over again. What a roller coaster of emotions. And Tristan—-HAWT!!! I licked him so he’s mine. I also licked Levi. LOL 2 book boyfriends equals my husband needs to watch out! :)

Tessa December 6, 2015 at 4:58 PM

Emily: Tristan and Danika. *sighs* What a perfect story. Add to that Thoughtless? Only two book boyfriends SO FAR. You forgot that part. After Thoughtless, you’ll probably have three. NO LICKING KELLAN! We all share him. I swear, I have about twenty book boyfriends, not including Mason Kade, cause he’s a favorite. :) They are addicting.

Amy, it was good! I need to get number five, aka the spin-off of it. Avalon needs to lose his heart. Here, for after your diet: YUM!

I finished Final Debt and it was okay. Not as exciting, honestly. I liked it, but after the gut wrenching insanity of the first five, that one was just not as scary. *shrugs* Ah, well. I’ll get to the epilogue eventually.

Tessa December 6, 2015 at 5:02 PM

Oh, Crimson Sin by Trina M. Lee is free today. :)

Amy December 6, 2015 at 5:49 PM

“I licked him so he’s mine.” <—— LOL Emily!!!! But you don't do well with angst? Ohhhhhh man…Thoughtless was the first CRAZY angsty book I read, and it was my "gateway" read which started my addiction to angst.

Oh, and just so we're clear…don't ever lick Mason Kade because he is Tessa's book *husband*. ;)

Lisa December 6, 2015 at 6:06 PM

Emily while you’re gathering book boyfriends be warned Travis is TOTALLY off limits. Look, read but DO NOT lick!! Im pretty sure he’s Maryse’s book husband.
Lucky you discovering Bad Things series AND Thoughtless for the first time.

Lisa December 6, 2015 at 6:09 PM

Ok MichelleS. Are we reading Badger?? I’m just finishing Sins of Sevin so I’m ready to jump in.

Tessa December 6, 2015 at 6:18 PM

*laughs* No. My Mason! :P *drags him into a closet and narrows eyes at everyone else* Go play with Logan instead! Yeah, you’ve got a fight on your hands with Travis too. Just saying… Maryse is tiny, but tough! At one point, we all said our top five Book boyfriends, and darn if it isn’t difficult to narrow it down.

Cheryl December 6, 2015 at 7:44 PM

Emily, the angst in books 2 & 3 of Thoughtless series don’t drag out like in book 1. It’s resolved fairly quick.

bev December 6, 2015 at 9:18 PM

What Angels Fear by CS Harris is on sale. Book 1 in the Sebastian St. Cyr series.

MichelleS December 6, 2015 at 9:22 PM

So I go to look up Badger and I’ve READ IT. Oh Em Gee. How could I have forgotten!!! I loved it. It was awesome. Oops. My bad! Lisa, definitely read it.

MichelleS December 6, 2015 at 9:23 PM

And then go buy a hoodie like his!

Lisa December 7, 2015 at 12:21 AM

MichelleS I did that recently with a series I had completely forgotten I had read: Went to one click….oh Ive already purchased this. Dig around in kindle files….ahhh AND I’ve read it!! :)

This us what happens when you’re a bookaholic.

So, I’m braving Badger alone. Shhheeesh.

Lisa December 7, 2015 at 1:42 AM

Just finished Sins of Sevin and feeling disappointed. Ive enjoyed past books by this author….Jake Undone, Gemini. But the writing in this book was ordinary. In both H/h POVs the simplicity of the writing made them both seem a bit touched in the head! Zero chemistry and what a bleak story. Didn’t love the way religion was depicted in this book either.
Need something to cheer me up now so I’m shelving Badger and heading to PNR for total fantasy escape. Over and out.

Ela December 7, 2015 at 9:53 AM

OMG finished Sweet Ruin last night AND Loved it! It felt a tad different from the other couples in IAD series as these appear to be on the side against the Vartas or Nix army…….hmmmmmm! I wonder what will happen next oh and this couple I totally don’t remember reading about them in the other books…*points at head – bad memory*

Now I don’t know what to read???????????? I was thinking The Man that I love????

Ela December 7, 2015 at 9:57 AM

Amy! You sure were a trouble maker this weekend!

Ela December 7, 2015 at 9:57 AM

*ducks under table from any paint balls*

bring on the peanut butter cups….

Amy December 7, 2015 at 1:11 PM

Monday morning and no work has been downloaded for me yet, so I decide to finally finish God-Shaped Hole…the pacing and writing style of it threw me off a bit until I got used to it, but man, that was a good read. It’s just that…it’s just…

*shaky breath*

I want a cherry cheesecake martini. *sniff* Oh wait, it’s still morning here.

*wipes snuffle on Manny*

A caramel macchiato with an extra shot. Except there is sugar in that…DAMMIT!


Excuse me while I go drown my emotions in green tea…

Amy December 7, 2015 at 1:18 PM

By the way, Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey is only 1.99 right now. I don’t remember much about it other than I liked it, and I just ached for the position she put herself in and the decision she had to face.

Just read the last line of the blurb and you’ll see what I mean. ;)

Jean December 7, 2015 at 3:22 PM

Ok, I had such a busy weekend…..trying to just now catch up with all your comments!

Cheryl, I loved book 2 of the Gravity series the best! They are light reads…… and yes I did get that email from Vi Keeland about free book a month. Haven’t checked it out yet!

Sounds like Amy was pissy and now she’s sobbing…..ain’t karma a bitch! Lol!

Emily is reading some great series right now and I’m jealous!

That line “I licked him now he’s mine” is from Real by Katy Evan’s and my alltime favorite book boyfriend Remington Tate! He’s mine! You can all just back away……

Amy December 7, 2015 at 3:42 PM


*throws snotty tissue at Jean*

fabi December 7, 2015 at 3:50 PM

Awww Jean! Remy! Gah…so broken, so strong. He definitely made an impact in my book world.

My fav, since no one else claims him, is Sebastian from Surviving Raine. Broken, but smart, strong, a survivor. All mine. ;-)

Jean December 7, 2015 at 4:02 PM

Haha fabi, ok you can have Sebastian. I’ll take Evan Arden since he is so f*cked up and broken and needs me to save him!

Ela December 7, 2015 at 4:07 PM

fabi!!!!!!!! I would so love Sebastian but I can’t because the guy on the cover I saw in real life and he is just NOT. MY. TYPE. and he was kind of ewwwwwy at Book Bash 2014

The guy on the left of course:

Fabi December 7, 2015 at 4:37 PM

awwwm Ela, so sorry that ruined it for you. My book doesn’t have a guy on the cover. Honestly, I prefer “non-model” covers.

Fabi December 7, 2015 at 4:39 PM

oohh, you mean the guys on the cover of Bastian’s Storm. No, no, no…never, nope. Yuck. That is not what Bastian looks like. No matter what the author says. hahahaha

Fabi December 7, 2015 at 4:41 PM
Jean December 7, 2015 at 4:44 PM

Oh fabi, I agree, Sebastian DOES NOT look like that!

Jean December 7, 2015 at 4:46 PM

Omg fabi!!! “Not bad”!!! That’s the understatement of the year! He is yummy!

Fabi December 7, 2015 at 4:49 PM

hahaha Jean, are you hungry? I agree. Edible is a good description of that one.

I love this reviewers description of Bastian

“Sebastian is an alcoholic chain-smoker sarcastic over-brooding bad-tempered total badass jerk.”
who turns his whole life around for the woman he loves. He gives us hope and shows us strength. Proves we can do and accomplish anything we want to given the right motivation.

I think I’m talking myself into a re-read. LOL

Ela December 7, 2015 at 4:52 PM

Luckily Fabi, I read the book before I saw the “cover model” and enjoyed it quite well!!!!

That model you have does a nice Sebastian represent!

Amy December 7, 2015 at 5:23 PM

The cover of Bastian’s Storm is just…blech. The poor guy on the right looks like he’s still waiting to hit his growth spurt compared to the guy who is supposed to be Bastian.

When I read Surviving Raine, Bastian’s Storm was already out so I had seen the cover but I just couldn’t picture Bastian that way. The Bastian in my head was definitely more along the lines of the guy that Fabi just posted. Maybe a little more filled out and rugged looking, but that guy will do. ;)

Lisa December 7, 2015 at 5:26 PM

If we’re ‘I licked so he’s mine’ with book boyfriends I’ve hot dibs on Jesse from This Man. Total head#$%&. Contraceptive hiding, control-freakery, bordering on sociopathic and at times begging for a nutpunch. But I couldn’t get enough.

Amy December 7, 2015 at 5:37 PM

I’m licking Tristan from the Tristan and Danika series!!!!

Amy December 7, 2015 at 8:27 PM

*slowly scoots over to Jean* You know I was joking earlier, right? ‘Cause if you didn’t then my comment sounded REALLY mean. :?

Tessa December 7, 2015 at 11:01 PM

Wait. Now licking stakes a claim? *licks Mason Kade* Alright.

Lisa December 8, 2015 at 12:06 AM

Oh. Lol. My imagination is flicking through images of everyone scrambling to lick book covers!!! ‘Mine. Mine. Mine.’

fabi December 8, 2015 at 12:17 AM

Haaaa! Y’all are killing me.

Amy December 8, 2015 at 12:19 AM

Yeah Lisa, it’s the “book covers” that we are licking. *waggles eyebrows* :P

Cristina December 8, 2015 at 8:23 AM

Lol! *licks Colton Donovan* from the K. Bromberg, Driven series! ALLLLL Mine!! ;-)

FYI Maryse… book one is free right now on Amazon.

Ladies, if you have not checked out this series, PLEASE DO! I’m not a racing fan, but a HUGE fan of this series. It ranks high on my fav books of all time! Colton Donovan is an arrogant, rude, and snarky bad a%&! I still remember finishing the last sentence and then letting out a big sigh.. I looked at my husband and said, “I can’t believe it’s over.” And then the book hangover commenced…

Ela December 8, 2015 at 9:44 AM

*thumps head* LADIES ARE YOU FORGETTING WHO STARTED IT ALL????? so licking (and biting and sucking) Christian Grey AND since I’m greedy like that I’m licking Travis (I don’t think I need to mention HIS book)

Fabi December 8, 2015 at 10:20 AM

Cristina, does book 1 in the Driven series end in a cliffhanger?

Tessa December 8, 2015 at 12:39 PM

Ela… You sure it’s safe to lick Travis? Pretty sure Maryse has claimed that one. :P

Fabi December 8, 2015 at 12:52 PM

Alright girls, everyone play nicely and share your toys.


Maryse December 8, 2015 at 12:53 PM


*glowers at Ela*

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 12:58 PM

*snort* you guys are killing me with the licks. VERY clever… I’m gonna make this a list. LOL!!!!! You guys kill me.

*already licked Travis’…sss’sssss cover* :P LONG LONG AGO.

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 1:01 PM

*glares around the room*

Fabi December 8, 2015 at 1:06 PM

What an awesome list. hahaha All the book boyfriends we licked.

Ela December 8, 2015 at 1:09 PM

*glares right back at Maryse* *lick lick lick lick lick lick* ok you can have him back but I’m keeping Christian *sticks out tongue*

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 1:17 PM

OH EM GEE!!! 8-O I just noticed… TOO MANY are trying to lick MY TRAVIS!!!

*sets up new sparkly blankie fort, and drags Travis in by the toe*

*clothespins it shut!!!!* :-?


Maryse December 8, 2015 at 1:21 PM

Fabi that’s the one I’m reading right now (Anarchy) but I’m not far in yet…

fabi December 8, 2015 at 1:32 PM

In the Driven series? The first one is called Driven. I’m confused.

Tessa December 8, 2015 at 1:53 PM

Wait? Sharing. Nope. Mason is mine. i am NOT sharing except maybe with Sam. If I were gay, she’d be my book wife. :P

Jean December 8, 2015 at 1:55 PM

Yep fabi. Driven, Fueled and then Crashed! Been wanting to read them for a while! My niece loved them better than Fifty Shades!

Jean December 8, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Amy, I always know you are joking! I don’t take anything you say seriously (unless it’s a book recommendation)! Haha!

Since everyone is picking their lickable book boyfriends, and I already have claim to Remy Tate, and Tessa took Mason, I HAVE to take Logan! Mine, mine, mine! Wouldn’t want to leave him lickless!!! Hahaha! (Can’t wait to see the “Lick” List Maryse….too funny)!

Amy December 8, 2015 at 2:12 PM

*sneaks in through back of Maryse’s sparkly blankie fort*

*gives Travis a quick lick*


*cackles and quickly crawls back out*

Amy December 8, 2015 at 2:15 PM

Tessa, Sam could be your sister wife. *snort*

fabi December 8, 2015 at 2:20 PM

Thanks Jean. I’m trying to find out if Driven ends in a cliffhanger.

Amy December 8, 2015 at 2:23 PM

I’m gonna defy Tessa’s order and…

*licks Kellan*

HA! Since I’ve already claimed Tristan then Kellan can be my…what would you call the male equivalent of a mistress? That’s what Kellan will be. :P

Cristina December 8, 2015 at 2:25 PM

fabi – Yes it does end with a big cliffhanger.

I did love these books as much as Fifty Shades of Grey, maybe more so in a way because Colton Donovan’s character was more complex and broken. He was a such a hot mess, even more so than Christian Grey. Colton was more expressive when it came to his emotions. Couple that with a strong heroine and it’s book heaven for me! Plus (and correct me if I’m wrong), the series was told from her perspective (Colton may have been added in book three), which I LOVE! It adds so much more to the angst! It’s like a frustrating puzzle trying to figure a damaged man out. My book hangover was worse with this series than with Fifty. I may have to do a re-read soon… ;-)

Tessa December 8, 2015 at 2:28 PM

We get a boy toy too? I can’t see James from In Flight or Jared from Bully being a boy toy. *shakes her head* How am I supposed to have a boy toy when I prefer overly alpha males? Fine, now I’m a sister wife to Sam instead. *grumbles*

Jean December 8, 2015 at 3:26 PM

Just googled “equivalent to mistress”…..”lover” and “boyfriend” were suggested (boring)…..or how about this one, paramour!!!

Ela December 8, 2015 at 3:27 PM

*pouts* FINE MARYSE HAVE YOUR TRAVIS AFTER HE’S BEEN ALL LICKED BY US *licks Travis’s pinkie, which is sticking out of sparkly fort*

Jean!!!!!! You are hoarding too much hotness!!!!!!!!!!!

Driven series totally ROCKED!!!!!

Ela December 8, 2015 at 3:28 PM

OMG Jean I googled it too….

Per Wikipedia

Male equivalent[edit]

For male mistress, the more general term “lover” can be used, but it does not carry the same implications. “Paramour” is sometimes used, but this term can apply to either partner in an illicit relationship, so it is not exclusively male. If the man is being financially supported, especially by a wealthy older woman or man, he is a kept man.

In 18th and 19th-century Italy, the terms cicisbeo and cavalier servente were used to describe a man who was the professed gallant and lover of a married woman. Another word that has been used for a male mistress is gigolo, though this carries connotations of brief duration and expectation of payment, i.e., prostitution.

Jean December 8, 2015 at 3:36 PM

Haha Ela! I think Kellan well definitely be a gigolo to Amy because she’d definitely have to pay for that sh!t!! Blahaha!!

Ela December 8, 2015 at 3:49 PM

LMAO Jean! Who took licked Kellan?

Oh oh oh oh oh *screaming* I am so licking Raze by Tillie Cole….suckers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ela December 8, 2015 at 3:52 PM

Oh and Nick from the Devil’s Eyes……….he’s MINE! *lick slurp* I hate to take him away from Kayla cause she’s such a bad ass bitch but sorry, not so sorry!

Jean December 8, 2015 at 4:05 PM

You can have Raze, Ela, I’ll take Flame from the Hades Hangmen! We have serious issues!

Grey December 8, 2015 at 4:11 PM

Geez… *peeks out* I’ve got V, Barrons, Tristan (from Danika and Tristan), and Will Sumner in my blankie fort… but you all carry on now… lick, lick, lick, lick *giggle*

Amy December 8, 2015 at 4:11 PM

“I think Kellan well definitely be a gigolo to Amy because she’d definitely have to pay for that sh!t!! Blahaha!!” <——— OMG! You BRAT!!!! LOL!!

*grabs Remy, Logan and Flame and licks them all*

Yeah, how you like them apples Jean??? Just try to get me to pay for that sh!t!!!! :P

Amy December 8, 2015 at 4:13 PM

Oh no you didn’t, Grey…I already claimed Tristan up above!

*drags Tristan out of Grey’s blankie fort* MINE!!

Ela December 8, 2015 at 4:15 PM

You can have Flame…he’s a little too f&^*d up for me with that staring he does…

Jean December 8, 2015 at 4:19 PM

Ha Ela, you are right, but I love the broken ones!

And I’m thinking Tristan should just be like a universal lollipop and we all get turns! He’s just too awesome so we need to share!

Ewww Amy, you left martini remnants all over my boys! Lol!

Ela December 8, 2015 at 4:30 PM

In that case I’m dragging Reyes and Ryder into my steel sealed fort enclosed with booby traps! *Licks Reyes and Ryder* Welcome to your new home, you can forget about Charley and Syn now…*grins* so I’ve got Christian, Raze, Tony, Reyes, and Ryder…now now now men, no need to fight over me *giggles*

Amy December 8, 2015 at 4:50 PM

*gasp!!* Tristan is not a universal lollipop! And just to be sure, I’m putting martini remnants all over HIM!

I have my paintball gun loaded and ready for the next one who tries to lick him. *raises paintball gun and aims at blankie fort entrance*

Shhhh…did you hear that? I think Ela just got paddled by Christian. :P

Ela December 8, 2015 at 4:57 PM

Those darn BDSM guys *huffs while tied to a St. Andrews Cross* Ryder and Christian are teaming up on my *squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee* *giggles* *darn it, ouch* “yes, masters I won’t call you names to my book buddies”….OUCH WHAT WAS THAT FOR???, oh and yeah I’ll ask for permission to talk *rolls eyes*……*OUCH*

Jean December 8, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Blahaha…..i just fell off my chair!

Grey December 8, 2015 at 5:16 PM

Wait… did you guys think I was licking them??? oh no… they were licking me…. *nods* *giggle*

Ela December 8, 2015 at 5:36 PM

Woaw there Grey! *thumbs up girlfriend* That’s what I’m talking about!

Amy December 8, 2015 at 5:42 PM

LOL!!! I’m dying here!!

Ela December 8, 2015 at 6:09 PM

Amy and Jean you need some action too??????

Grey it appears their chosen licks aren’t cutting it for them, huh? What do ya think?

“Ryder and Christian stop with the clamps! I wasn’t offering your services, I promise. Oh *ouch*, Yes, masters I’m sorry for not asking permission to speak, *rolls eyes*…%^^$%&*$%^$&^% OUCH *whispers in head, you BDSM men will get what’s coming*” OUCH I did not speak out loud! Oh you can hear my thoughts now???? *(^&*%^&(*^*())*()

Lisa December 8, 2015 at 6:24 PM

Oh my God. I go to bed early and wake up to find everyone has gone into a licking frenzy!!!! WTH??
Complete craziness. But Maryse…..oh Maryse? You in that sparkly blanky fort?? I would love to see this list… The Blokes I’d Lick List!

Lisa December 8, 2015 at 6:27 PM

Amy. I’m half way through Badger and love it so far. Not sure what I was afraid of but Im sure its coming…STOP…don’t tell me. I’d rather go in blind. Oh Badger. So broken.

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 7:43 PM

OH SO GOOD Lisa!!!!!! One of my favorites this year without even questioning. Her writing… magical, even in its realism.

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 7:44 PM

I’m gonna SO make the “lick-list”… probably this week. THAT WAS fantastic my friends!!!! You guys have me rolling… laughing and crying happy tears. :P

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 7:44 PM

*snort* Grey!!! Yes. TEE HEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! *blush*

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 7:47 PM

Ela… time to “top” your book-Doms from the bottom. Bratty subs get more punishment but from what I’ve learned (from the books… ONLY THE BOOKS) the Doms kinda love a bratty sub. LOL!!!!

Look at me, knowing D/s terms!!! :P Gah, I would have never known had it not been for our fun reading obsession.

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 7:48 PM

OMG did we all just separate to our own mini-blankie-forts? LOL!!!

fabi December 8, 2015 at 7:50 PM

Sure we did. All except the swingers out here.

LOL I’m laughing at all the research these authors had to do in order to educate us readers. Can you imagine they’re Google histories? :-0

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 7:52 PM

*wipes Travis’s pinkie finger off with a disinfectant wipe*

*sigh* :roll: while I’m at it…

*pulls out the whole container of disinfectant wipes and gets to work…*

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 7:54 PM

Amy!!! Where did you lick??!!!

Oh never mind…

*wipe wipe wiiiiiipe*

Maryse December 8, 2015 at 7:57 PM

I kind of really wanna sneak in and drag Kellan in here too… but Travis would beat him up.

When you love Travis, it can ONLY be Travis.

Whoever has Kellan better treat him right!!!! How many of you are fighting over Kellan?

Amy December 8, 2015 at 8:42 PM

Well, let’s see…we have separate blankie forts ’cause (like Fabi said) we have some swingers around here who think we should share. And according to Jean can only get Kellan if I pay for him. *gives Jean stink-eye*

Where did I lick Travis? I licked his…oh, you figured it out on your own. *snicker*

Amy December 8, 2015 at 9:01 PM

Lisa, I’m not giving anything away from Badger…you need to experience that beautiful broken boy’s story blindly. ;)

Ela December 9, 2015 at 8:08 AM

I’ll top my doms as soon as they free me off this St. Andrews Cross! And why is this instrument called as if a religious relic?

*licks Travis’s other pinkie* Maryse you really need to keep him tucked into your fort.

Ela said “tucked in” *giggle, snort, giggle*

Emily December 10, 2015 at 9:55 AM

Amy!!! Nooooo I totally licked Tristan ALL OVER. I claim him! He’s mine! All mine! *insert evil laugh* LOL ;)

Maryse–Lick List!! Love it! I’m totally going to make one!

Amy December 10, 2015 at 12:24 PM

Oh HECK no!! I thought this was settled…I am NOT sharing Tristan!

*drags Tristan into the shower*

If y’all need us, we’ll…er, I mean HE will be in the shower washing off Emily’s attempt to mark him. :P

Ela December 10, 2015 at 1:05 PM

Well considering you’re trying to steal Kellan Amy I think the ladies are calling dibs any which way???!!!!

And Yes! Travis isn’t properly “tucked into” whatever Maryse is trying to stuff him into cause I still can see body parts *licks his middle finger*

Amy December 10, 2015 at 1:14 PM

I’m not trying to steal Kellan…I’m just not going to pay for him like he’s a gigolo! Besides, he’s my “paramour” since Tristan is my guy, so I don’t mind sharing Kellan. ;)

“Middle finger”…is that what you’re calling his *ahem* body part? LOL!!!!

Ela December 10, 2015 at 3:21 PM

*blushes* uhm no, the “middle finger” was just that but now you’ve brought it up *licks &%$^* snap! Maryse caught me *runs quickly and ducks behind Christian who’s holding the cat o nine tails* *smirks at Maryse*

Emily December 10, 2015 at 8:15 PM

Oh heck no Amy! Tristan loves me. He told me so. You can drag him into the shower all you want…he’ll be back for more of my licking. (I totally didn’t type that without laughing) =P

Amy December 10, 2015 at 8:26 PM

LOL Emily!!!

Yeah sweetheart, whatever you need to tell yourself. ;)

Emily December 11, 2015 at 8:04 AM

LOL. ;)

Ela December 11, 2015 at 5:20 PM

While Amy and Emily argue over Tristan he hops into Jeans fort :)

Jean December 11, 2015 at 6:01 PM
