Fifty Shades Freed (#3) EL James

Synopsis:When unworldly student Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and ultimately repelled by Christian’s singular sexual tastes, Ana demanded a deeper commitment; determined to keep her, Christian agreed.

Now, together, they have more – love, passion, intimacy, and a world of infinite possibilities. But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity or independence; Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control, and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present.

Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, misfortune, malice and fate combine to make Ana’s worst nightmares come true. Alone and desperate, she must face down the poisoned legacy of Christian’s past.

Seductive, shocking, sad and funny, Fifty Shades Freed is the compelling final volume in the Fifty Shades trilogy.


Holly's Thoughts:


This was a perfect ending to what has definitely become my favorite series! I was wonderful to read the conclusion of this wonderful story that is Ana and her Fifty Shades. I couldn’t love Christian any more if I tried, and I big enough to admit that I am just glowing green with envy of Ana :) - For the most part this book was not as intense all the time as the other two but what was most wonderful, after watching these two overcome some pretty major obstacles to be together, was getting to watch them learn to be husband and wife and function is the real world together.

I am not going to get into very much detail, one, because I could simply go on forever and ever talking about Fifty and how much I love him and two, because I really don’t want to give anything away. These are definitely books that should be savored slowly without any hints!

I will say though, that as fairy tale as their story is they definitely have to work through some major issues that are arising simply because they had an obsessive, whirlwind romance that now is taking some real work in the light of day, so to speak. While Christian is just as mercurial as ever, at times I did feel for Ana in this one. Christian can be a bit, well, overwhelming, which we all know and love him for, but Ana struggles at times with this. As I can imagine I would too, but the fact that they love and need each other more than their next breath helps them conquer all of these hurdles. Sometimes with a little punishment involved, :) which doesn’t seem to have any of the parties involved complaining.

My favorite quote… Christian grins. “Am I that much of a prize?”
”Christian, you are the state lottery, the cure for cancer, and the three wishes from Aladdin’s lamp all rolled into one.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself!!

The way that I fell in love with these characters shocked even me, to the point that they were so far in my head that I would dream about them at night when I finally put my book down! I have to say Ms. James does a phenomenal job of making you FEEL the characters! I have to thank one more time my GR friends that first introduces me to this series, what an amazing emotional roller coaster ride!! I can’t wait to do it all again.

I also need to include some pics of my favorite different faces of Fifty…

Dragon Bound (Elder Races, #1) by Thea Harrison

Half-human and half-Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful—and passionate—of the Elder Races.

As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they've ignited in each other.

Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave—although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul

Rhonda's Thoughts:

  I was in the mood for some good PNR, or urban fantasy. Well, along comes this little book that everyone is reading, loving, and gushing over, including some of our favorite authors. So I figure, “what the heck” let’s give it a go. So I’m all excited, and can’t wait to dig into this tempting little treat, and my expectations are now high to start with.

So I start reading this book, and I’m liking the writhing, it’s working for me. WOAH!! Suddenly I’ve run into a BIG problem, and It’s a big problem for me. You see, I have issues with these kinds of stories that involve the real world. I don’t like it when humans know about all the magic. So now I have a mental block with this book, and I’m not digging it. I was pissed off for having spent the money, and having to read this book!

Damnedy damnit, color me happy, because about 100 pages in, my feelings for this book turned to LOVE!!! Yes, Thea Harrison made me eat every last negative word I said, and I enjoyed every mouthful!! LOL! I love Harrison’s story telling, creativity, and the life she brought to her characters. This is likely the most fun book I’ve read this year.

I’m not going to go into the plot here, it started with a penny and ended with a peanut. Read the blurb. What I do want to go into is the characters who were simply fantastic, they totally made this book. It was filed with goblins, faeries, and different kinds of wyr creatures.

Dragos Cuelebre is a dragon that shape shifts into human form. He is pretty much as old as time, and the most powerful, and feared creature in the world. Over thousands years, he has acquired the outrageous wealth and status to go along with that reputation of his. But being surrounded for hundreds of years by employees that caters to his every demand, or desire. This is the life he is accustom to, and apparently finds no issue with it until he meets Pia Giovanni. Pia has found is treasure trove of items he has collected over the years, gotten through all the wards, and locks that were supposed to be impossible to get through, and stolen from him. This puts Dragos in a tailspin of of rage. Determined to find his thief, and pass judgment himself, he finds himself Intrigued more that anything. Intrigued by the fact that the thief was able to find his hidden cache, but was able to actually get to it, and most of all, he’s intrigued by her scent that was on the note she left behind. Then he realizes just how bored, and lonely he’s been his whole life.

I really liked Pia from the beginning with her sassiness, and snappy sense of humor, and the ability to laugh at herself. And I was glad to see she could kick ass too. Pia was raised by her mother who was full Wyr, and Pia is half Wyr, half human. Being to taught her whole life not to form attachments to others, or material possessions, to be able to drop her life and run for self preservation. Because if anyone ever found out what she is, she would be the most hunted person in the world. Pia doesn’t even know what she is, and has led a lonely life, and having a constant desire to belong. And having been betrayed by her human ex-boyfriend, it’s difficult for her to trust.

When Dragos, and Pia collide, (literally) the wheels are set in motion for a crazy and fun ride. And together they are SMOKIN’ HOT! I absolutely loved these two together.

Now there is also a fabulous cast of secondary characters that I’m sooo looking forward to reading about in future books. Tricks, Rune, Aryal, and Graydon, *Thud*, I wonder how long we’ll have to wait for his story. But Tricks Story should be HELLA FUN!!

Funny, Funny, Har, Har!

                                 In too far......

 A young man was showing off his new sports car to his girlfriend. She was thrilled at the speed.
"If I do 200mph, will you take off your clothes?" he asked.
"Yes!" said his adventurous girlfriend.
And as he gets up to 200, she peeled off all her clothes.

Unable to keep his eyes on the road, the car skidded onto some gravel and flipped over. The naked girl was thrown clear, but he was jammed beneath the steering wheel.
"Go and get help!" he cried.
"But I can't. I'm naked and my clothes are gone!"
"Take my shoe", he said, "and cover yourself."
Holding the shoe over her pubes, the girl ran down the road and found a service station. Still holding the shoe between her legs, she pleaded to the service station proprietor, "Please help me! My boyfriend's stuck!"
The proprietor looked at the shoe and said, "There's nothing I can do...he's in too far."

Wicked Becomes You By Meredith Duran

Gwen Maudsley is pretty enough to be popular, and plenty wealthy, too. But what she’s best known and loved for is being so very, very nice. When a cad jilts her at the altar—again—the scandal has her outraged friends calling for blood. Only Gwen has a different plan. If nice no longer works for her, then it’s time to learn to be naughty. Happily, she knows the perfect tutor—Alexander Ramsey, her late brother’s best friend and a notorious rogue.

So why won’t a confirmed scoundrel let her be as bad as she wants to be?

Unbeknownst to Gwen, Alex’s aloof demeanor veils his deepest unspoken desire. He has no wish to see her change, nor to tempt himself with her presence when his own secrets make any future between them impossible. But on a wild romp from Paris to the Riviera, their friendship gives way to something hotter, darker, and altogether more dangerous. With Alex’s past and Gwen’s newly unleashed wildness on a collision course, Gwen must convince Alex that his wickedest intentions are exactly what she needs.

PhotobucketSam's Thoughts:

First, I let me just say how much I love the cover of this book! THEN they even got Gwen's red hair right (I'm a stickler for things like that). But pretty cover aside, I absolutely loved Wicked Becomes You.

Our heroine is Gwen Maudsley, the nicest debutante and also the richest. After Gwen's second fiance jilts her at the altar , she decided she is done with being nice and wants to experience life let say 'Wickedly'. And who better to guide her than her late brother's best friend Alex.

Both Gwen and Alex were really likable characters and as the story goes on you begin to see that beneath the surface there is more to them than being "the nice girl" and "the rake," which makes this book an engaging read.

Not like alot of other HR, this book is NOT set in London. Their adventures takes them from London to Paris and Nice and even to Monte Carlo.

This isn't a perfect book- Something that bothered me was that after being jilted early in the book, Gwen found a note from a "secret admirer" in her room and read it and tossed it aside without much thought. I thought, surely this is from Alex and she'll find out later that he'd loved her all along. In actuality, the letter is never mentioned again. Maybe this started out as part of the plot, but then got changed, but not removed from the entire story.

Other than the above mention, as far as I'm concerned, this was a great romance, and I can't wait to read more titles by Meredith Duran

Key to the Cursed:Soul Reborn By Jean Murray

THE HUMAN REALM, HIS BATTLEFIELD. Asar, the Egyptian God of the Underworld, has been tortured and left soulless by a malevolent goddess, relegating him to consume the very thing he was commissioned to protect. Human souls. DEADLY SECRETS BETTER LEFT UNEARTHED. Lilly, fearless commander of the Nehebkau huntresses, is the only things standing in the way of the goddess' undead army unleashing hell on earth. Now an empty shell of hatred, Asar vows to kill the goddess and anyone involved in her release, but fate crosses his path with a beautiful blonde huntress who has a soul too sweet to ignore. But Lilly has a secret-one she is willing to sell her soul to keep. If the Underworld god discovers her role in the dig that released the goddess, she will lose everything, including his heart.


Elena's Thoughts:
Many possibilities....

Talk about a load of Suspense! This novel was quick paced and engaging. Who would've known one story could carry so much depth. The paranormal aspect of the story was over the top A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! The characters have strong loyal connections to one another. (Which I find really important in a story.) That being said. This book had me in control,whenever I set the book down, my thoughts were running about "what's going to happen next".

The 3 Carrigan sisters are in for a wild ride they never expected. As humans,they were brought up to be Huntresses. As their story progresses, their involvement with the Demi-Gods play a huge role.

The Demi-Gods, claim the humans are responsible for unleashing the curse when they unearthed a tomb and released a violent goddess from her prison.

Both the Hero and Herione were complete opposites, Lilly being a human (who despises any supernatural being) and Asar being a Demi-God (who hates humans) Clashed in all the right ways. Who were they fooling? Not me! Ha! They were two stubborn souls,but a match well made. I loved their connection. Asar is a sexy Alpha Hero and Lily is a kick-a** Herione, just how I like my characters.

When all is said and done. There's a story behind every story. Like I've already mentioned,a load gets thrown at you left and right. I honestly don't think I had the time to breath. Lol! It was just that good!

I can't wait for the next novels to be released. I'm crossing my fingers that there will be 2 more stories,with these wicked sisters. Lily had her HEA, now Kit and Kendra need one. I can't wait to see which Demi-God they make quiver and bring to their knees with love for them. I'm excited!

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke's Heart (Love By Numbers #3) by Sarah MacLean

She lives for passion.
Bold, impulsive, and a magnet for trouble, Juliana Fiori is no simpering English miss. She refuses to play by society's rules: she speaks her mind, cares nothing for the approval of the ton, and can throw a punch with remarkable accuracy. Her scandalous nature makes her a favorite subject of London's most practiced gossips . . . and precisely the kind of woman The Duke of Leighton wants far far away from him.
He swears by reputation.
Scandal is the last thing Simon Pearson has room for in his well-ordered world. The Duke of Disdain is too focused on keeping his title untainted and his secrets unknown. But when he discovers Juliana hiding in his carriage late one evening—risking everything he holds dear—he swears to teach the reckless beauty a lesson in propriety. She has other plans, however; she wants two weeks to prove that even an unflappable duke is not above passion.

Rhonda's Thoughts:

This was my first time reading Sarah MacLean. I’ll admit that when I started this book, and saw where the story was going, I felt an eye-roll coming on. Well, it didn’t take long for that feeling to change. Juliana captured my heart quickly, the daughter of a fallen English marchioness, and an Italian merchant, she is considered by the ton to be a mere commoner. Her mother took off when she was a child, and after the recent passing of father, she was shipped off to London to live with her half brother the Marquess of Ralston. With no station among English society, and afraid she will end up a scandal like her mother, Juliana pretty much snubs her nose at the English and their rules.

After arriving in London, Juliana meets the Duke of Leighton; Simon. There was instant attraction between the two of them, but when Simon finds out that she is a commoner, he wants no more to do with her.

Simon had been groomed his entire life to be a duke, and carry all the responsibilities of his title, including marrying the perfect English bride regardless of love. In fact, according to Simon, love and passion are not important at all, love is pretty insignificant in his mind, reputation is all that matters. His mother who is cold and callous and is only concerned with the reputation of the family name, has raised Simon to be the same way.

After separately vowing to stay away from each other, circumstances have them crossing paths again. And a verbal sparring match turns into a challenge brought on by Juliana. She challenges him to give her two weeks to see if he is capable feeling “passion”. Juliana wants to bring the cold, unfeeling Simon to his knees. The beautiful, vivacious, carefree Juliana, starts to break through his facade, turning Simon into a constant contradiction. Juliana herself starts to feel more than she wanted to as her game starts to backfire, and to add to Simon’s mountain of reasons he should stay away from Julia, Simon has secrets, secrets that would ruin his family’s name . Not to mention the scandalous burden Juliana carries, thanks to dear old mom, and Simon is already betrothed to someone else.

Even though I spent a great deal of time wanting to throttle Simon, I just couldn’t hate him, and I loved Juliana!! I also enjoyed all the sexy tension between Juliana and Simon, and I loved watching these two learning from each other, resisting and falling in love. However this story also broke my heart several times, because sometimes love isn’t enough….

I also really liked MacLean’s writing style, when I wasn’t reading this book, I was thinking about it. I’m really looking forward to going back to read the first two books in this series.

Tied Up,Tied Down (Rough Riders #4)-Lorelei James

Blurb:The strongest bonds are the ones unseen Rough Riders series Businesswoman Skylar Ellison is firmly in control of her life. So getting tangled up with a sexy Wyoming cowboy-and conceiving a baby in the parking lot of a honky-tonk-wasn't in her plan. Since it appears the daddy has taken off for greener pastures, the only thing to do is pull up her bootstraps and carry on alone. Cattle rancher Kade McKay returns home after a year on the range, and is knocked for a loop when he learns he's the father of a three-month-old baby girl. When Skylar refuses to marry him, Kade grits his teeth, moves in and plays house by her rules to prove he's a man in for the long haul. Despite Skylar's insistence they are to remain strictly parenting partners, their old passions flare hot as a brush fire, spurring Kade to demand absolute sexual surrender from the headstrong woman. Skylar willingly submits her body to the hot-blooded cowboy but she's leery of handing Kade the reins to her heart. Can Kade convince Skylar the wicked sex games aren't a temporary distraction? Or will he have to bust out the ropes to show her he wants to be tied to her.forever? Warning: this book contains: no holes barred kinky sex scenes, wicked rope play, blunt language, and yowza! lots of hot cowboy nekkidness.

PhotobucketHolly's thoughts:
I loved this book as much as the others but was only able to give it 4 stars simply because I wanted to punch Skylar in the face!!! I mean seriously, Kade McKay is about as perfect as a man can get. He cooks, cleans, gets up in the night with the baby, is smokin' hot and has just enough sexual kink to get my blood boiling, and this is all after he has worked the ranch all day, IMO it takes Skylar WWWWWWWAAAAAAAAYYYY to long to realize how awesome he is. Towards the end of the book, Kade tells India that he would like someone to fight for him for once and I AGREE!! Obviously this book, like the others has a HEA, but I was a bit exhausted by the time we got there!!! All that said, this is another smokin' hot read in this series with lots of nekkid cowboy action!

Prefect Strangers By Rebecca Sinclair

Gabrielle Carelton is one of Queen Elizabeth's most devoted ladies-in-waiting. But her loyalty is put to the test when Her Majesty commands her to marry Scotsman Collin Douglas. When Gabrielle is kidnapped by Collin's twin brother, not even Good Queen Bess can save her. Dubbed the Black Douglas, devilishly handsome Connor is known throughout the land for his magnificent feats of strength and cunning. But now he is in need of an heir. An English bride will bring peace to the warring nations and give him the son he craves. What he doesn't expect is a woman as passionate as she is proud and a desire that knows no boundaries. Set against the pageantry and savage splendor of 16th-century England and Scotland, here is the story of a man and a woman who begin as enemies and strangers and find a love that will triumph against all odds.

Elena's thoughts:

Feuds go back a long way....

Gabrielle Carelton is ordered to marry a Scotmans named Colin Douglas to reacquaint alliances between England and Scotland Borders. Their marriage would put an end to the vengeful feuds that have been getting worse by the day between the English and Scottish. This is one feud that's on the verge of being repaired by one simple marriage. Till.....

Connor Douglas also known as the Black Douglas,(his notorious name is enough to make you quiver) takes refuge and steals the spotlight and ruins his brother Colin's plan to marry Gabrielle by abducting his bride and wanting to marry her himself.All plans are set into motion. Till ........

Yet, another Feud begins, between the Douglas and Maxwell's. As you can see, lots of coins are being flipped,this novel was a page turner. It's been a while since I've read an Historical Romance. It took me a while to get used to the heavy Scottish accents, but, Boy oh Boy! It was worth it! The plot of the story was very dramatic and eventful which kept me reading it non-stop.There's love, romance, jealousy and suspense.

First off, if you love Scottish Hotties, with a possessive streak and all man from head to toe, you'll love Connor! Gabrielle, (his heroine)was soft in the beginning of the novel, but she grows stronger by each page I turned. I loved her for her willingness,strong and easy going character that she was. The one woman to snag Connor's heart and bring him to his knees with just a smile is what made her a perfect heroine. I loved it!! The emotional conflicts between this couple, was hot tensioned,strong,sexy,intriguing and all together just DELICIOUS!! Their relationship becomes stronger & stronger as the book progressed. Charming couple!

This was my first go,at reading a novel written by Rebecca Sinclair. She put a lot of thought, determination and time to write this novel,so therefore by me giving it a 5star rating,it's a definite "HECK YES" I will read another wonderful well written novel by this author.

Never Cry Wolf by Cynthia Eden

Lucas Simone is not the kind of guy you mess with. He's big, he's strong, and his eyes hint at a wilder side most women can't handle. Of course, that's because his predatory instincts are no metaphor—he's a genuine Grade-A top-quality werewolf, tough enough to fight his way to dominance over the scariest pack on the West Coast. There's only one chink in his armor. Unlike most alpha dogs, Lucas has a reputation for protecting the weak and innocent.
Sarah King is counting on that protective impulse—it's the only thing standing between her and certain death. There are only two problems: one, she's not quite as innocent as she'd like Lucas to believe. And two, if he doesn't stop stoking Sarah's animal lust, it's only a matter of time before her own wild side gets unleashed. . .

 This story had so many secrets revealed, and twists and turns, where to begin??

Sarah King is seeking the protection of the LA pack Alpha, Lucas Simone and his pack. Bringing with her, a bounty on her head, and a lot of secrets and half truths. Sarah is running from Rafael Santiago, an alpha from a different pack. Sarah has a bit of history with Rafael, one that ended on a bad note, you could say. And Rafe has the misconception that Sarah is his mate, but he is the one who placed the bounty on her head, and Rafe has more of an agenda that just seeking out Sarah, he’s also seeking his own vengeance against Lucas. And Sarah running to Lucas plays right into his scheme. Rafe has lots of players in his quest for revenge on Lucas, some even in unsuspecting places.

Sarah is a  “Charmer”,  someone who is able to communicate telepathically with animals. Each Charmer has one type of animal that they are able to communicate with, but there is something a bit more special about Sarah’s ability. Sarah has known from a very young age that she was different, and never truly feeling like she belonged, and this is the one thing she wants most. Sarah turns out to be quite the fighter, and willing to give everything for what she wants.

Lucas…. *sigh*, Where do I begin with this sexy beast of a man??? He’s definitely Alpha, he’s dominating, possessive, protective, loyal, honorable, and HAWT!! He’s had his share of bad hands dealt to him, Starting with the murder of his father when he was 10yrs old. His mother took off way before then, and he’s never really had anyone to care about him, except for his brother, that he only found out about when he was 16yrs old.

Lucas and Sarah are attracted to each other instantly, but it’s their journey, and secrets revealed, the building of trust, and willing to give everything, and give up everything for each other that makes their story so awesome. *sob*

Every character in this book had a purpose. From the wolf packs, to the coyotes, and
the humans, a vampire, a dragon, a fire wielding demon, and a voodoo priestess, they all had a role, and many of them had secrets revealed, and betrayal in their part. I had a lot of questions while reading this, but by the end, all was revealed. The plotting was tight , and I love how Eden has already set the stage for future books, everything was woven together nicely throughout the story. And Cynthia Eden can write a smexy scene to make your toes curl!! I’m really looking forward to the next installment in this series.

The Portal By Daisy Dunn

Cole Evans has been in love with Gianna Thomas from the first moment he laid eyes on her when he was a student at the University. He pursued her relentlessly, but Gianna would not date him because of their ten year age difference. She broke his heart when she pushed him away for good, afraid to be known as a Cougar.

Five years later, Cole is now twenty-nine years old and is ready to fight for Gianna. Before he does, he takes one more trip through the portal he created into the alternate universe he has stumbled across. He has been chosen as a guard for the ruling queen of this world and is shocked when he sees that one of the prisoners is Gianna. He needs to get her out of this place, away from the hungry gaze of the queen and into his arms once and for all.

Phenomenal lovers indeed!

Gianna Thomas works at the Local University in Calgary,as an assistant in the Department of Science.. Early on when she first started working at the University. A student 10years younger then Gianna was deeply crazy and infatuated with her. Although Gianna found him attractive,the age difference was like a brick reminder, it would never work. Being named a Cougar was not her style, so she lets Cole Evans down gently. But Evan never forgets her.

Well don't lose your focus just yet! Gianna thought life with her former mature boyfriend,Jack,was all she needed.He was kind,loving and more appropriate,age-wise. Don't let age become an issue,Jack was immature in so many ways. Cheating Skeezer! Ugh! OMD!! Guys like Jack are jack a***. Come on! Gianna was a loyal woman. Gosh I really hate men who cheat. But in the end everything happens for a reason. *smirks*

Cole Evans is a Science Genius! Evan works in the science department at the University. Working on science creations. He makes a portal to a whole other alternate universe.

When Giamna decides its been 5years since shes seen Cole,it's time to make a visit. Except this visit is so unexpected,she follows the bright light and falls into Evans portal. Hmmmm.... You know things such as this,always happens in movies and books, where the characters always walk towards the light and never away. I wouldn't for the life of me, walk towards a bright light. You never know where you'd end up. Lol!!

Well..... In Gianna's case,she got her cake and frosting and ate it merrily even when she returned back home.Hopping into that portal she's reacquainted with Cole.Fires spark and she realizes she was a fool to ever break his heart. Is a phenomal man and a Sex machine! Lol!! It doesn't get better then that. So she is a Cougar after all *wide grin*

This novel was a cute story, I had just wished it was a tad bit longer. One minute I'm reading and,45 mins I was done. I wanted to read more. But on that note,it ended well,and I enjoyed myself.
