Blog 30/09/2016- 50 Shades of Grey discussion

Well as you can see success with my site I seem to be getting the hang of it now…..I hope I wanted to talk about peoples reactions when they ask you what genre book you read and you answer them “Romance” and I am sure there are others out there who normally get this “Oh! You like that 50 shades of Grey book” and they usually say it with a condecsending chuckle that really pisses me off so here is my answer.

“Have you ever read 50 Shades of Grey?” because if they had they would realize that Yes it has a lot of SEX in it and YES it has BDSM but that’s because it’s a romance/erotica book, BUT do they know that it is a beautiful, deep and sad story about a little boy who lay next to his drug addicted mother’s dead body for day’s until he was found? then adopted and sexually abused and manipulated by his mother’s friend from when he was a young teenager? Do they realize that Christian Grey is really a broken, lonely little boy who has emotionally detached himself from feeling so that he doesn’t get hurt again? and how hard and an unnatural it is to have to learn how to feel and in some way loose some of his control to Anna? So really you have 2 totally different characters here who are both intimately inept but are able to share, teach and grow with each other. No normally when I say this to the people who think that 50 Shades of Grey is just a book about sex they always have the same answer, with their mouths usually hanging open they say “Really? I didn’t know that I think I will have to give it a read” and then I know my job is done.

Gripe of the day

Don’t you just hate it when you poach an egg and the yolk comes out hard? …..me too

Summary:
Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka “His Royal Hotness,” is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant―hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.
Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.
Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.

Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.
There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately―the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.
But to Olivia―Nicholas is worth it.

Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King… or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

BLURB

All eyes are on us . . . and there’s nowhere to run.
Everyone has their own ideas about Dallas Sykes: He’s a reckless billionaire, a devilish playboy, a man who gets whatever he wants the minute he wants it. But I know the real Dallas behind the money, bravado, and power—and he’s completely, blissfully mine.
We carefully guarded our secrets, and in each other’s arms we sought refuge from our dark past. Our pain became our pleasure, our control within the chaos. But we could only hide from the truth for so long.
Now we’ve let loose our inhibitions and are ready to face the future. And no matter what people think or say, coming clean is its own sweet reward.

Synopsis:
Transfer is book two in The Retrieval Duet. It is not to be read as a standalone.

One story. Two couples.

I fell in love with a man who didn’t exist.

What started out as romance ended in hell.
His words turned to razor blades.
His kisses converted to fists.
His embrace became my cage.
His body transformed into a weapon, stealing parts of me until ultimately….
I broke.

I hated him.
My sole job in life became to protect our daughter.

I wasn’t sure I’d ever escape the prison he’d skillfully crafted from my fears.
Until the day our savior arrived.

This is the story of how I escaped the man who thought he owned me.
The transfer of my life and my family.

For the last seven years, Caleb Bonelli has let those three words define him—mold him—make him into the man he is today. Living hard and fast, he has never looked back, determined to ignore the pain and suffering of his past. Until he hits rock bottom.
She’s alone, afraid, and tortured.
Henley Matthews doesn’t need anyone—only her music. She learned at an early age that she has no choice but to find comfort in the cards she’s been dealt. A life full of beauty she holds onto tightly because she doesn’t know when it will be taken away.
When Henley allows Caleb into her life, everything spirals out of control. She discovers things about his past that should send her running. But instead, it gives her a reason to stay. Will he feel the same about her once he learns her secrets? Can a damaged man like Caleb handle the truth behind the beautiful tortured woman?

Stacia Palmer had one goal in life—to become an NFL quarterback’s wife.

For the past three years, she’s seduced her way through the university’s football line-up. But when she finally has a quarterback fresh off the draft, Stacia experiences a shocking change of heart. One that sends her back to the place she never thought she’d return to.

Once there, she finds that no one believes her. Least of all Pace Larson, her sexy on-again off-again ex who has never quite gotten over her leaving him for someone else. Of course, he’s now the starting quarterback and determined to claim her as his prize.

Sebastian York – Narrator

Yes I know we all imagine Sebastian York looking like the hunk in the picture above but I am afraid I can’t give you a photo of him because he is quite an elusive person and I am guessing private, can you just imagine all the women he would have trying to hunt him down and see if his physical self matched his voice? I would bet there would be thousands but not only does this man have a voice that’s like melted chocolate smooth and deliciously decadent, and could read a phone book and make it sound hot and sexy he is also a very talented and brilliant narrator bringing emotion, humor, feeling and a personality to the characters. I always look for audiobooks that he narrates and I purchase them and I am thinking that I am not alone here. So Sebastian York if your out there somewhere and by chance you read this thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the pleasure you have given to a lot of people of there in the audiobook world and to be honest I wouldn’t care if you were a crusty 90 year old grumpy man in reality I would still do you.

Andi Arndt

Another brilliant narrator with her smooth and soothing voice and her ability to change accents when required, Andi puts so much emotion and personality into the characters that you feel what they are feeling she also has an incredibly sexy male voice as well so much so it would make a straight woman turn bi-sexual. Andi Arndt is another narrator that I will listen to an audiobook whatever it is if she is narrating it such a talented artist who gives a personality and a voice to her characters.
