Book Review: Fifty-One Shades of Blonde by Jessica Knoll

  • Format: Kindle Edition
  • File Size: 298 KB
  • Print Length: 33 pages
  • Publisher: Cosmopolitan (28 Aug 2012)
  • The sexy story that first burned up the pages of Cosmopolitanis here—with three new chapters that are so hot they may steam up your screen

    Christopher Reiss is the handsome and extremely intimidating CEO of a major financial firm. Megan’s nothing but a lowly assistant. But when she stumbles upon some incriminating evidence that could threaten Christopher’s career, she finds herself on his radar . . . and eventually his desk, his kitchen counter, his bed . . . you get where this is going, right?

Fifty-One Shades of Blonde is a fast and direct sexy as sin read. Megan is the lowly assistant with dreams of being a journalist. Christopher Reiss the high powered CEO Megan just happened to catch at dinner with a known mobster. 

Right of the bat Megan and Christopher are attracted to each other in a flaming passionate way. But Megan is stuck at in impasse. Does she go public with the story she has on Christopher? Or does she let go for the sake of an orgasm?

Fifty-One Shades of Blonde is yet another product of the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon. With a domineering man who comes complete with an insatiable sexual appetite, Jessica Knoll does not mince around with her words or intent. Of the thirty pages of this short story, about twenty are sex scenes. And whilst the sex scenes are very well written, with the author really going for it, the story as a whole just felt lacking. It seemed one massively long sex scene with a story line thrown in at the last minute for good measure. We are left with a less-than-satisfactory ending, with too many questions still raised and no hint of a sequel. 

If you are looking for a fast and sexy read with not much story, then this is the book for you.

Book Review: Blazing Midsummer Nights by Leslie Kelly

  • Format: Kindle Edition
  • File Size: 1839 KB
  • Print Length: 222 pages
  • Page Numbers Source ISBN: B007JJEFJC
  • Publisher: Mills & Boon Blaze (1 Aug 2012)

  • Anything can happen on a magical midsummer's eve Marketing director/workaholic Mimi Burdette has The Plan-work for her father and date his right-hand man. Problem is, there's no heat in the relationship. Not even a spark. And worse still, Mimi is having some seriously sexy, panties-ablaze dreams-and the star looks a lot like  Xander McKinley, the hunky firefighter next door. 

    Mimi's dreams might be due to the strange tea she drank. Or the predictions from the fortune cookie she ate. Or they could be due to Xander's smokin' hotness. But whether it's magic or just old-fashioned fireworks, Mimi is about to break all of the rules-including her own!

Mimi Burdette is a young workaholic set on showing her father just what she is made of, and igniting some spark in the dull as dishwater relationship she is having with his right hand man, Dimitri. But before any of that can happen, new neighbour Xander McKinley crashes head first into her life...and dreams.

Xander is a muscly, gorgeous firefighter with an ache in his heart after the death of his father. He has been involved with rich girls before and expects Mimi to be just like the others - spoiled girls who just want to slum it for a little while. But he cannot deny his attraction to Mimi, both physically and emotionally. He starts to fall hard and fast for the woman who climbs a tree for a kid she doesn’t know to help rescue a cat, or who unwittingly disturbs and beehive just to pick some flowers. 

Mimi can’t stop thinking about Xander, and how after a few minutes of his company she wants him more than she could ever imagine. One thing she is certain - she can’t pretend Dimitri is enough anymore. And it’s time to take charge, and go after the things she really wants. 

Xander and Mimi are two feisty and head-strong characters. I loved their sass and chemistry. Whilst this book is insanely erotic, it is also funny and light-hearted with a heart of gold. This is a perfect book for any romance fans with a penchant for firefighters.

Book Review: The Goddess Legacy by Aimee Carter

  • Paperback: 400 pages
  • Publisher: Harlequin Teen; Original edition (31 July 2012)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0373210752
  • ISBN-13: 978-0373210756
For millennia we've caught only glimpses of the lives and loves of the gods and goddesses on Olympus. Now Aime e Carter pulls back the curtain on how they became the powerful, petty, loving and dangerous immortals that Kate Winters knows.

Calliope/Hera represented constancy and yet had a husband who never matched her faithfulness....

Ava/Aphrodite was the goddess of love and yet commitment was a totally different deal....

Persephone was urged to marry one man, yet longed for another....

James/Hermes loved to make trouble for others-but never knew true loss before....

Henry/Hades's solitary existence had grown too wearisome to continue. But meeting Kate Winters gave him a new hope....

Five original novellas of love, loss and longing and the will to survive throughout the ages.

The Goddess Legacy gives us a unique insight into the gods and goddesses that Kate Winters introduced us to in The Goddess Test.

With five unique short stories featuring Calliope, Ava, James, Persephone and Henry himself, many questions are answered that have been building as the series progresses. We get a look at the power hungry Calliope, the love-struck Ava…the unhappiness of Persephone.

The Goddess Legacy has the same wonderful writing feel as The Goddess Test and Goddess Interrupted, but it was refreshing to get another character’s take on things, so five was just amazing!

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella and the look into the gods’ early years. The only down side is it has made me yearn even more for the third instalment of this amazing series.
