Review: One Night With The Sexiest Man Alive (The One #1) by Ainslie Paton

I know I don't often post more than once or twice a week but I thoroughly enjoyed this book that's recently released and I wanted to share the book love. So, a bonus book review. :-) I hope you enjoy it.

Reading all the smut

Couple kissing by ocean

I've recently discovered smut. Not, mind you, that I've not read raunchy, sexy stuff before. I've read plenty of it. Back in the day, a long time ago in the dark ages, I read a lot of the Black Lace books (they stopped publishing in 2009) that was pure erotica, but as a rather inexperienced reader I thought it was just rather titillating. A little googling told me that "Black Lace books are unashamedly explicit and have explored areas of sexual fantasy where other women's erotica has feared to tread." and that was my intro into smexy times in books. :-O And of course, after Fifty Shades of Grey, I read a lot of erotic romance too when the market exploded with those books.

Manview: Healing Danger (Fortis Security #1) by Maddie Wade

Welcome to another Manview. For those of you who are new to Manviews, these are reviews of romance novels specifically from a man's perspective, the reader today is my very own Steve. You can find previous Manviews here.

We are going to have a few more Manviews in the next few weeks as Steve and I are going on a trip to the UK and meeting some of our favorite authors there. He's reading a bunch of books in preparation of catching up with them. This is the first one.

What Helen Read #45: January 2020

You know what? This year is going by way too fast. If I blink, I'm going to be off on my round the world trip. Part work, part holiday and I'm really looking forward to it. Might not get much reading done since we have a pretty full schedule.

How has your month of January gone? It looks like Helen had a great reading month but then, she always does since she always loves most everything she reads.

Here's what Helen read for the last month.

What Deanna Read #48: January 2020

Okay, it's already February and the year got out of the gate running. January went by in a flash but I think that's also because I'm preparing for a trip and I'm trying to get as much of my reading commitments done as quickly as I can before I leave.

On the reading front, I think this might be a personal best in terms number of books read for the month. Granted, some of the books were quite short and fun reads but sometimes a girl needs those in between the heavy duty stuff.

A couple of points to note in my reading this last month. I tried a lot of new authors in January. I'm working my way through a very large list of authors that have been recommended to me in my latest romance genre obsession. Quite a few of those books are no longer in print or no longer available on Amazon because the author is now selling their books via a personal website. I'll try to link as many of those books as I can but for some of them, they are just what I'm finding I've bought in the past and are still available in the bottomless pit that is my Kindle Library. I have a tendency to one-click on the off chance that I would read a book at some point. I've gotten lucky with some of these books when I've picked them up on sale or for free from Amazon in the past. Others I've bought from the author's new personal website.

Here's what I read for the month.

How to support the authors you love

Girl reading book in bed

I know as readers, we like to support our favorite authors. With the publishing industry being the way it is now, especially with the growing crop of indie authors, I think it's important for us to know how we can support the authors we love. Vote with your money!! This gets asked a lot, so I thought I'd address it here.
