Hot Reads!

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

Do you ever read books that get you a little hot and steamy?  If you do, join in Hot Reads and share some of your favorite sexy reads and find some new ones!

Hot Reads is a Monthly Meme, hosted by Book Savvy Babe and Alive on the Shelves, where we get to share our hottest read of the month!  Your choice can be any book, it doesn’t matter the genre, the length, whether it’s new or old.  If you read it during the month, and it raised your temperature, it qualifies to be aHOT READ!  To make things as simple as possible, Hot Reads will take place the 28th day of the month.  So every month, be ready to share your HOT READ pick!

IMPORTANT: Due to content, this meme is open to participants 18 and older ONLY!

How To Participate:

  • Pick your HOT READ of the month (ex. on September 28, you pick your HOT READ for the month of September)
  • Make a blog post sharing your Hot Read pick.  Include in the post: book title, author, HOT READ button, and links to the hosts.  If you would like to include book teasers, book review, etc feel free!
  • Add the link to your post in the linky  at a host site and visit the other blogs to see what others chose as their HOT READ! (you only need to enter your link 1 time)
  • As always, don’t forget to spread the word! (help us out by tweeting, facebook, etc)

Now, a HOT READ doesn’t have to be hard-core or even an erotic read. Maybe the author’s photo made you hot! Maybe the cover art — all those broad shoulders and rippling abs — raised your temperature. Maybe there was just a scene or a setting that made you squirm in your seat — those all qualify! After all, we don’t all have the same taste in men (or ladies, pick your pleasure), so why should we have the same taste in HOT READS?



My October Hot Read:

Sadly, I have not read any hot books this month! But all is not lost, because some of my email has been pretty steamy! So, I’ve got something special this month — a chance to win something for your digital bookshelf that will get you all hot and bothered. The good folks at Pink Pepper Press have offered me a couple of copies of one of their new titles for a few lucky readers. All you need to do is leave a comment below and I’ll pick 2 lucky winners on Wednesday, October 31st! (Copies can be redeemed from

They sent me a great list of titles, but how could I resist steampunk romance? So my pick to give to you this month is The Falcon’s Chase:

Captain Reuben Costello is just hours away from facing his execution when the unlikeliest of
rescuers storms into his cell. Lady Arianne Dalton needs the assistance of the infamous Black
Swan to flee England and all its constraints. He finds himself more than willing to help the
fiercely independent Ari in exchange for his freedom.

However, when they come to find their fates inextricably tangled in a plot that threatens the
very foundations of British society, they are swept away on a chase that puts not only their
lives, but their hearts at risk – and neither of them can defy the wild and stormy ride they find
upon the Falcon.

 

So, leave your comment for a chance to win! I’ll pick 2 winners on Wednesday, so be sure to check your email!

Review: Blackmailed by Annmarie McKenna

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

I found Blackmailed by Annmarie McKenna tucked away in a stack of books I got at a convention. I hadn’t really given it much thought (pretty blond girl on the cover didn’t do much for me), but I picked it up when I was looking for something mindless. I got exactly what I expected — a hot bit of fluff with some steamy sex and not much plot. Completely enjoyable.

Let’s just say up front that the plot is completely ridiculous. Brianna is lovely and innocent and her father is an utter bastard. He is ashamed of his blind son, so he tries a business arrangement with a handsome, young millionaire: Daddy Dearest is willing to pay Cole Masters, the most eligible bachelor in town, to impregnate Brianna. Dad figures this will get him the perfect heir he longs for. Of course, Cole and his best friend, Tyler, are immediately smitten with Bri and decide they must marry her and live happily ever after, having lots of kinky threesome sex along the way.

The sex is definitely hot, although a warning: there are definite consent issues, so beware if that pushes your buttons. Brianna goes from virgin to vixen in less than 7 days, and no one in the family (other than Daddy) has any problems with her  little menage. There’s even a little danger, public sex and a death threat to make sure you’re paying attention. But let’s face it — you’re not reading this for the literary merit. The sex is hot, the boys are sweethearts down deep, and there is bound to be a happy ending. That’s all you really need.

This month, my HOT READ is Working Out the Kinks by Angela Sargenti. How can you not love a book that starts out:
“Dear Diary,
Today I had my first threesome.”

How hot is that! What I liked about this book is that it’s kinky and fun — nothing too heavy and the women are definitely running the show. Even when Dana is over her man’s knee getting a spanking (“Working Out the Kinks”), she’s there because she wants to be. After all, she wouldn’t have been such a naughty girl, teasing her boys, Evan and Shaun, the way she did, if she didn’t really want that spanking.

This is another novella, just three little stories, but it’s definitely worth a look. There’s naughty Dana in “Working Out the Kinks” and she has definitely earned her spanking. There’s the diarist in our opening story, “XOXO” and she has a talent for talking her boys, Vince and Aja, around to her way of thinking. The middle story, “Autobahn,” is told from the boy’s point of view. Lisa has a surprise for Dylan…and he’s not sure he’s going to like it. But I think Lisa and Jared will convince him…in the end. Definitely in the end.

So, how about you? What have you read this month that got you hot and bothered? Pick a book, hop on the Linky below and join the fun!

This month, my HOT READ is While The Wife’s Away and Other Stories by Kris Anderson. It’s a little hot, guy on guy action, full of handsome men sneaking around. We all like naughty boys and these guys are downright wicked. I knew as soon as I saw the cover that this would be a good read — and a hot one.  And it reminded me of one of the big benefits of reading a HOT READ on your Kindle — you don’t have to worry about hiding the cover!
