A Dangerous Night with the Divas

Okay. So, maybe this wasn´t a dangerous night. It wasn´t even an eventful night either! But this is a subject that needs to be discussed. 

TBR lists.

Seriously? They´re impossible to manage. If you have a list with 10 unread books ( we know we´re being unrealistic here. TBR lists are MUCH longer!)….you get to read 2 out of the 10 and then CRASH BOOK BANG! A few authors release their books and your list doubles within no time. Surely….we aren´t the only ones with this problem.

TBR

* this is the TBR list that never ends…yes it goes on and on my friend…* ( singing the song ” The song that never ends” from Lambchops. If you have no clue about that song…click the link. It´s annoyingly cute)


Now since we all have a mile long list of books that need our attention…what would be the best solution to solve our problem?

Is there a cure for a TBR issue? Obviously….we all won´t live to be 180 years old….so how will we be able to read all those wondeful stories?

And why do we always skip our TRB´s and read something that wasn´t even on the list to begin with?

We´d love to hear your thoughts on the subject…

Much love,

Us Divas xx

Slow Surrender by Cecilia Tan

Slow Surrender pic

 

Get comfy in your glass slippers and enjoy, ladies! This book from beginning to end was an excitingly erotic ride.  Cecilia Tan captivated us right from the start with her different and enticing book, Slow Surrender.

Karina Casper is a hard working grad student who has a run in with a mysterious and attractive stranger in the midst of the final Lord Lightning concert frenzy who immediately pushes her sexual lines to new limits beyond her wildest dreams.  Feeling strangely comfortable with the man she knows nothing about (and only knows by his assumed name, James) she agrees to explore different games he sets forth for her.  From a simple marble to exhibitionism, Karina and James find their growing attraction and feelings for each other harder to ignore. The one thing that stands in their way is James’ true identity.  Will Karina push too far and push him away or will he slowly surrender to her and his feelings?

Slow Surrender left us craving more and we cannot wait for the sequel Slow Seduction to be released in January 2014.  The Divas give this book 4 out of 5 champagne glasses!

Come Alive by Jessica Hawkins

ComeAlive_Cover

 

Come Alive, the second book in Jessica Hawkins’ Cityscape Series, is out and is AMAZING!!  With all the emotional turmoil Olivia goes through—from acceptance to her fated marriage to her recognition of her overwhelming love for David—we couldn’t put it down!

 Olivia has been mourning both her friend’s death and her separation from David for months.  To numb the pain, Olivia dives into her work and inadvertently neglects her relationships with her dearest friends and the person that should matter most, her husband.   Their attempts to help Olivia’s growing depression are futile as we find out the one thing she needs to snap her out of it is about to come back into her life.  As David and Olivia are thrown together once again, her unwelcome feelings become her lifeline and she soon realizes hard decisions need to be made.  Question is, what and who will she choose?

 Go out and get this series if you haven’t already!  The Divas give Come Alive 5 out of 5 champagne glasses!!! We are anxiously (and maybe a little impatiently) waiting to see how this powerfully intense story continues to unfold.

A Patriotic Whore ( The Cathouse Series) – Matthew Kadish

apw

Oh, dear Lord. NEVER in my life have I had such a fantastic time while reading a book! I mean it, people! A Patriotic Whore was a new refreshing story and it I loved it!
When I was in the middle of a drama story, I received an email for a book recommendation of A Patriotic Whore by Matthew Kadish. And seriously? When I read the title, I was like : ” Aaaaaw, damn! Who comes up with such a title?” That was my only thought. But hey! I am the last person on this planet to judge a book by it´s title. So, I bought the book on Amazon and started the book with only a little knowledge on what the book was about.

This book was mainly about sex. Sex, sex, and a whole lot more sex! At times, a lot of kinky sex, but hey…….if you´re open-minded and you know what the world has to offer on kinky stuff….then you won´t be too shocked when reading some of these scenes. It was the story that made the kinky stuff very VERY unique and quite good!

Now ladies……if you have a woman in town that likes to sleep around…would you automatically give her the title ” whore” ? Yes, you would. You´d probably even go so far as calling her “slut, bitch” or other nasty and non friendly names. This book will set you completely free from all that negative thinking about village mattresses ( that´s what I call women who sleep around)….ANYWAYS….the way the author displayed the whole story was fantastic! I loved the way he used that nasty term and turned it into something normal.

This book was about Blaire Reese…a young college student, who loved nothing more than to party and have sex. Of course, having that kind of lifestyle as a young woman can lead others to think that she´s a whore. But Blaire was okay with that. There was nothing wrong with her having the same amount of fun as any guy was allowed to have. So, she was having fun until she noticed that she was about to flunk Psychology class. Blair decided to try what she does best. Try to charm the psychology Professor! And of course…..it works. Blair has an uncanny ability to use sex as a tool! And that doesn´t go unnoticed. The Professor meets with Blair and introduces her to a guy who wants to offer Blair a job. Since Blair doesn´t have a clue as to what she´d want to do with her life….she takes the offer! The offer to become a spy / whore for the CIA!I was totally into the story after that! Blaire had gone from a town bed hopper to a professional spy / whore for the CIA! Oh GOD….the things she has to do to actually become what she wants was just WOW! I had a whole lot of moments where I was just amazed by how interesting the characters were.. Blaire ( the main character) was and always will be my favorite. I´d even go so far and say that I felt like she could be my twin when it came to the way she acted and thought. She was just one of those people who you would fall in love with from the very start! She was funny!
I used every spare minute I found just to read this book!
The story was fun, funny, sexy as hell, and very interesting! To be perfectly honest with you people……I was shown the difference between man and woman, sex and emotions and so much more….I actually gave the whole subject another thought and I can say that this book changed my POV a little. When you really take your time to think about all the things that are involved with two people….you kind of get a huge AAAAAH! effect.
Even though this book had a serious background ( sleeping with the enemy, serving your country, etc) the story ( which was told from Blaire´s POV) was just soooo much fun! For the first time EVER, I felt that the charcter just called me on my phone and told me really fun story. I liked that alot! I liked the way the book was written ( very easy and normal, nothing too formal) and I liked that the characters were natural.

If you´re up for some fun + a lot of sex ( oh and it´s hot people…..the author nailed it * hooker humor alert!*)

I will say it again….I LOVED this book. And I am totally excited to read the second book!
Note to author: You ROCK! lol….

The Divas are giving this book 5 out of 5 champagne glasses!

liebster award

A really sweet author / blogger, M.C. Lavocat has nominated us…the Divas Book Blog, for the Liebster Award! * still can´t get our heads around that one *…How is that even possible? Could there be some kind of misunderstanding? Maybe added the wrong email address or something? lol…Oh, please don´t get us wrong….We are absolutely happy about the nomination…:-) and after we double checked our email…we nearly passed out after we understood what this whole Liebster Award was about! So…Thank you M.C. Lavocat for nominating us. We feel honored and we´re very happy to be a part of it! xoxo

Diva Allison

– My favorite hobby is reading books

– I love dirty martinis but hate green olives

– I have 2 beautiful daughters!
– Born and raised native Arizonan (Prescottonian) Prescott, AZ
– My favorite brands are BCBG, Bebe, MAC cosmetics, via spiga & cole Hahn
shoes, & coach purses but only the completely leather ones! Fabric coach purses, in my opinion, is a waste of $$ & completely voids out the reason why someone should buy a coach purse in the first place.

mind of what I want

that happened long ago! Cause and effect fascinates me!
– If I choose to do something, I put everything I have into it & will make
sure I’m great at it! I hate feeling mediocre!
– I have no favorite color, number, or food. They change with whatever mood
I’m in
