Fan Fiction Friday: Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Peeking out from under my blanket, hoping that the groundhog will see his shadow, so that this insane cold weather will stop. He is supposed to see his shadow right? That means spring in six weeks, right? God I hope that whoever is responsible for arctic outer space coming down into our atmosphere, will seal the “hole” right back up. Maybe Dr. Who can help with that or maybe those guys from Big Bang Theory? What about Santa Claus, he’s probably in the area and not busy?

Rewrapping myself back up, what is a girl to do when it is too freaking cold to even go to work? Read her favorite fan fiction. Not just any fan fic though, only the best will do. This week, I’m reccing a short story and a WIP, and they are seriously hawt, because I’ve got to warm myself up. LOL

Seriously, even Edward is freezing...

Blog Tour: Elena Reviews: Compromising Positions by Mary Whitney + Giveaway

Compromising Positions Blog Tour Banner

 

Compromising Positions Cover

The synopsis:

We weren’t supposed to be friends. We weren’t even supposed to like each other.

I’m Michael Grath. I’ll admit I was elected to Congress on my Republican family history. I was out to make a name for myself, until I met Jessie Clark, a spitfire Democrat.

She’d be my nemesis, if I could just stop thinking about her. We’ve got nothing and everything in common, and one big issue that divides us. All of this is going to land us in more than one compromising position.

And like I said, we weren’t supposed to be friends, we weren’t even supposed to like each other, and we certainly weren’t supposed to fall in love.

My review:

“I’m hopelessly in love with you. Can’t you see it?”

Politics, Law, Compromises, Love, Passion, — Compromising Positions, the new Adult Romance by Mary Whitney, is a great novel that leaves the reader wanting more. This is no surprise to me, since I’m a big fan of Mary Whitney. She’s the Author of Beside Your Heart and Disclosure of the Heart, books that I truly loved.

She proves her writing talent also in Compromising Positions, which I give my thumbs up, and I encourage you to add it to your TBR list.

Blog Tour: Letting Go by Maya Banks with Review, Excerpt and Giveaway!

Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her. Dominance. Lonely and searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she’s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she’d find is the one man who’s long been a source of comfort—and secret longing. Her husband’s best friend.

Dash has lived in an untenable position for years. In love with his best friend’s wife and unwilling to act on that attraction. He’d never betray his best friend. And so he’s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.

When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, he’s furious because he thinks she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her…love her. And the only man she’ll ever submit to.
