I am an avid reader. I probably read 1 book every 1-2 days. Just think how many books I could read if I didn’t work. I am a nurse by night. I try and sleep some during the day and then I read, read, read. My kids are grown; no grandkids (I wish). I am from FL but, living in CA and wanting to move to OR. Please join us in our endeavor to bring books to you and our reviews of those books.

I know that Nikki Kushma reviewed Lainie’s book already today but, I was blown away knowing that this was her first book and I really loved it. So saying that here is my 5 “O’s” review. Yes, it was decided that we would give O’s (yes as in Orgasm’s) instead of number of Star reviews.

OMG, I can’t tell you how much I loved this book! It is a fairly short read so I was able to read it in about 3-4 hours. It was fantastic to read a story that has the lead female character to be in her mid 40’s and to not have a perfect figure! And, Isaac likes & then falls in love with Kathy with all of her “flaws”. Isaac is the owner of Nexus (BDSM club).  He is obviously a Dom and Kathy is an accountant. Enough, said I really don’t like giving the story away. Here is a quote from the  book. “What the hell am I doing? I think I’ve lost my mind. It’s a mid life crisis…that’s what it is. He doesn’t seem put off by my body, though. Maybe he has bad eyesight. But he could feel the ridges of my stretch marks and scars. There has to be some reason he seems attracted to me. (now my favorite line in the book) I’m already going to hell in gasoline soaked panties, so why not…..” I loved this book I can’t say enough about it. I hope you will too. Oh and this is Lainie’s debut book so you know her writing will only get better!

Candy Hearts – by Faith Gibson

On Valentines Day at Sweet Things bakery they are serving up eclairs with a side of love.

When the new vet in town stops by the bakery Annie quickly realized he is too sweet for her but may in fact be the perfect flavor for her twin Jesse. From the moment Jesse sees Dean his heart turns to butter cream filling.

Dean came to town to take over his uncle’s veterinary practice. Never did he imagine that he would find sweet chemistry as quickly as he did with none other than Jesse Dalton.

Being gay in a small town is never an easy thing, but being new to town and gay would seem to make finding romance an impossibility. But the delectable confections of the bakery provide the perfect recipe for sweet romance.

Faith Gibson has served up a delicious mix of fun, gorgeous men and sexiness. Grab a Double Stuffed Eclair, a sweet iced latte and enjoy the tasty treats at the Sweet Things Bakery.


Nexus – by Lainie Suzanne

Book: Nexus

Stars (Os): OOOO
Katherine embodies the spirit of all 40 something women looking for a little adventure. All too often we are pushed into doing things by our BFF and the outcome is less than desirable. Who would have thought that a night out with Deb would expose Katherine`a hidden self. Taking her life from Mom and everyday gal to sexy sub, Katherine discovers a fantasy world she thought only existed between the pages of her “mommy porn” books. Isaac believed his life to be full without getting messy emotions involved. He was content with his love life being solely D/s. Enter temptation in the form of a voluptuous redhead. The Nexus of Katherine and Isaac was fate in the truest sense. Throughout this book I was able to relate to Katherine. From her insecurities and stowed away sensuality to her submissive tendencies, I could be Katherine. Nexus is a believable, sexy story and the writing style is superb. This was a wonderful debut by Lainie Suzanne.
