My Sexy Saturday #25 – Sexy Once Again #MySexySaturday

My Sexy Saturday

Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday. This is where writers post either 7 words, 7 sentences or 7 paragraphs from their published work or work in progress, sticking to the week’s theme. This week’s theme is sexy once again. I’m sharing a snippet from The Other Brother, which releases tomorrow as part of Decadent Publishing’s Calendar Men series.

Patrick hastily put his own drink down and watched her, a wary expression on his face, as though he saw what was about to happen, but couldn’t quite believe it.

After what felt like an age, their faces were very close, her intentions brutally honest. She couldn’t go back now. Clambering onto his lap, being careful of her injured hand, she kissed him. Tentatively, at first, with closed lips and stiff body. Within seconds, though, lust took over, driving her forward. Driving her wild. He waited a beat then responded, kissing her back.

Slipping her arms around his neck, she parted her lips, pushing her tongue into his mouth. She explored it, the sensuous slide of their tongues ramping her internal heat to maximum. He kissed wonderfully. Not too gentle or rough. Not too soft or hard.

They pulled apart. Sucking in much-needed oxygen, Melodie asked, “What about now? Do you want there to be someone?”

He appeared shell-shocked, but at the same time his eyes were heavy-lidded with lust. He blinked a couple times then his face became serious. “What are you saying?”

“I think you know.” She frowned. Why is he making me spell it out? Is he being deliberately obtuse?

Her lips tingled from the bout of kissing and she wanted to kiss him again, wanted to go further. Time to get the talking over and done with. “I’m saying that I want you. I don’t know how the hell it happened, and I sure didn’t expect it to, especially not with you, but I want you. I want to be with you.”

Book Review: 666 Charing Cross Road by Paul Magrs

Article first published as Book Review: 666 Charing Cross Road by Paul Magrs on Blogcritics.

666 Charing Cross Road666 Charing Cross Road is a light hearted take on the gothic and supernatural. The action is split between London and New York, and starts in Manhattan. Shelley works in a museum, and is dating her boss, Daniel. He’s stuck up, but she puts that down to him being a posh Englishman. Things are going reasonably well until Shelley’s aunt Liza gets in touch with a weird old bookshop on London’s Charing Cross Road and starts ordering spooky tomes. Soon, a dusty leather book arrives which Liza finds repellent, and her dog even more so. Daniel, however, is fascinated by it.

Liza soon realises it’s stained with vampire blood and carries an evil entity, but it’s too late. Daniel calls forth the power into himself, and at the same time it gives life to Bessie – one of the artefacts in the museum. It seems the newly-powerful Daniel and Bessie are mortal enemies. Daniel’s aim is to infect the whole of New York, and beyond, whereas Bessie is determined to put a stop to the evil curse. But she can only do it with the help of her human friends. And so off to London they go…

This is a real page turner. It’s all quite tongue in cheek and yet has elements of supernatural myths and legends which really make you think. 666 Charing Cross Road is a good fun, engaging vampire novel with a difference. I’ll definitely be looking out for more from this author.

Book Review: Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger

Article first published as Book Review: Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger on Blogcritics.

Everyone Worth KnowingHaving read the book and watched the film of The Devil Wears Prada, I suspected that I’d be in for a good read with Everyone Worth Knowing. I wasn’t wrong. This book is chick lit at its finest.

Everyone Worth Knowing tells the tale of Bette, a headstrong woman living in New York. Despite it never being her life’s dream, she works in banking and hates every moment of it. One day, she decides she’s had enough and leaves. Having no idea what to do next, circumstances and contacts suck her into another job – party planning.

With no experience, Bette has to learn quickly, at the same time ignoring the resentment her colleagues inevitably feel about her getting the job as a favour. However, she quickly proves herself and is soon planning the hottest and most exclusive parties in New York City.

Bette spends days planning parties and evenings attending them, leaving less and less time for her family and friends, let alone her non-existant love life. Soon, her job is her entire life. So when she’s mistakenly linked with a notorious and hot British playboy, she can’t understand it. She’s even more confused when her boss and colleagues encourage it. Going along with it, deep down Bette knows that she’s being used, but is too busy working to take much notice.

But when a vicious gossip columnist called Ellie Insider starts writing untrue and spiteful pieces about her, the harsh reality of her lifestyle hits her. Everyone is out for themselves in the crazy world of fashion and celebrity and if Bette gets sucked in any deeper, she’s afraid she’ll end up just like them. Then there’s the tiny matter of a very real love interest that could be lost if Bette doesn’t make some decisions… and fast.

Overall, I thought this was a fab book. It’s an easy read and is absorbing enough that you’ll whizz through it in no time. It’s definitely more action-based than emotional, but I still found myself really liking Bette and rooting for her. If you’ve read anything else by her, or you enjoy books like Bridget Jones’ Diary, Sex and the City, etc, you’ll like this.
