Goodreads Choice Awards, Hurricane, Blogiversary

Hello peeps…Happy Halloween to those that celebrate it, and happy Wednesday to all.

In light of the hurricane that has devastated many, I’d like to encourage everyone to think about making a donation to one of the charities that will be helping people get through the loss of a home, job, etc.

Sylvain Reynard has posted several charities that are worth donating to on his website with links. For the cost of a book or two we can all make a difference in someone’s life.

Neda Reviews: Devoured by Emily Snow

The synopsis:

Sienna Jensen had no plans to return home when she graduated college last spring—after all, her dreams lie in California. But when she discovers her grandmother’s Nashville home has been foreclosed, and the new owner has started the eviction process, Sienna has no other choice but go back to Music City. And she comes face to face with the flawed, gorgeous man she never thought she’d see again. The man who now holds the deed to her grandma’s estate.

When millionaire rock star Lucas Wolfe finds the outspoken redhead glaring at him from across a courtroom, he’s both infuriated and intrigued. He still can’t get the night Sienna almost spent with him out of his mind, and the chemistry between them is as undeniable as it was two years ago. He craves Sienna more than ever. And just like everything Lucas hungers for, he’s determined to have her.

Now, Lucas will do whatever it takes to lure Sienna into his bed, even if that means making a deal with her: ten days with him, playing by his rules, and he’ll hand over the deed to her grandmother’s home. Though she agrees to the arrangement, Sienna is conflicted. Because of her duty to her family. Because of promises she’s made to herself and a past that still haunts her. And as Lucas’s game of seduction continues, and Sienna is introduced to his dark, erotic world and even darker background, she realizes that at any moment, she could be devoured.

How many times have we watched and re-watched kissing scenes in movies? Several of them have become iconic and still make us feel butterflies in the stomach. For a kissing scene to be good, we must see  the chemistry between the actors otherwise the result is kind of awkward…

Same goes with kissing scenes in books. How many times have we happy sighed while reading a kissing scene? A lot, I guess 😉 The kisses can be sweet, tender, feral, passionate… If a kissing scene is a well written one, it makes us feel the chemistry between the two characters, the love they have for one another, the passion that fuels…
