Illustrated Temptations #32


Hello beautiful readers! Whatcha all reading? I’m here with my part 2 throwback pic teasers from my favorite books. I started this post last week so ICYMI click here for part 1. So, hopefully if you haven’t read any of these books you’ll be tease enough and it might convince you to read them.;)

Today let’s go back to those books who made me laugh, love, hate, sad, angry, cry…to sum it all up–emotionally drained and crazy exhausted.LOL I understand that not all readers can take a deep and dark reads such as some of the books listed here. I am mentally open minded and a very extrovert kind of reader, yes, I’m mental–some will I don’t mind going to those dark places as long as I’ll have the HEA before I finally close the book. BUT, there are some rare occasions that I am fully captivated by how the authors wrote the story even though at the end I ended up “WTF happen? No fucking way!”.

Okay enough of my blabbering, check out my pic teasers below.

Gel Reviews: Out of the Shadows and into the Darkness by Senta Holland


The synopsis:

A deeply felt and superbly written BDSM love story, Senta Holland’s ‘Out of the Shadows’ explores the beautiful darkness in seven bedrooms.
You’ve been enthralled by ‘The Bride Stripped Bare’ and ‘The Secret Diary of a Submissive’, now prepare to devour ‘Out of the Shadows’.

Senta, a thirty something Londoner, travels around the planet looking for the man who can match her. The one she finds is her ′Nai′, a high society American in Asia. Senta′s story is both complicated and made more exciting by the fact that it unfolds in the dark world of BDSM, a world that can be hostile to single, independent females.

Highly erotic, deeply romantic, funny, heartfelt and beautifully tragic, this book shows the BDSM experience from the inside out, as reality, not just fantasy. Above all it is an intelligent, insightful and deeply sensitive love story that will take you to places beyond your wildest dreams and open up the most secret aspects of your erotic identity. It will make you lust, think, feel and cry. Senta′s message to her readers is passionate and clear: Never give up looking for your true sexuality.
