All I want in life is…

…sounds about right


Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer

If you have not already noticed today was the premiere of the official Fifty Shades of Grey trailer.  Set to makes its debut on the big screen Valentine’s Day of 2015; the trailer does indeed pack a punch.

I felt that it was shown pretty well except like every trailer you feel like you see the movie, however there is so much to be expected with this film.  I am, however, worried that it will be difficult for this movie to really make the impact that it needs due to the actual content of  the book and what it centers around.  With that said I am hoping and possibly feel that it will be done tastefully.  Like every book that becomes a film, the book will most likely be better, I mean your own imagination creates the best image alone.

The movie settings and location depiction, from what was scene, looks to really hit home with those of the book and that I think that is important.  As for Grey and Steele casting, I don’t know if they will do the roles justice.  OBVIOUSLY! Grey is not real and honestly there is no REAL man who can be him.  I am hoping that body language and expression will compensate.

I believe, this might be my first kind of negative post HAHA but that is not my intention.  I am VERY much looking for ward to the film and will definitely be going to see it, I mean COME ONE, you HAVE to, ESPECIALLY if you read the books.

I am OBSESSED with the song that covers the trailer and I CAN’T wait to hear the movie’s soundtrack if Beyoncé has something to do with it.  The song was perfectly fitting.

Check the trailer and see for yourself:

Beautiful Oblivion

Jamie McGuire has done it again! Her newest novel Beautiful Oblivion has set a new standard for me.

Beautiful Oblivion (Maddox Brothers, #1)

“The Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster phenomenon continues in the first heart-pounding new adult romance in The Maddox Brothers series.

Fiercely independent Camille “Cami” Camlin gladly moved on from her childhood before it was over. She has held down a job since before she could drive, and moved into her own apartment after her freshman year of college. Now tending bar at The Red Door, Cami doesn’t have time for much else besides work and classes, until a trip to see her boyfriend is cancelled, leaving her with a first weekend off in almost a year.

Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt.

Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.

As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart.

In the first installment of the Maddox Brothers books, readers can experience the rush of reading Beautiful Disaster for the first time, all over again” (good reads book bio).

I fell in love with Beautiful Disaster and would have never thought that I could enjoy another set of characters as much as I did Travis and Abby BUT I was WRONG.  Trent and Cami are a beautiful couple.  And I might love there story more than Travis and Abby which is a shocker.  Trent and Cami are both straight forward honest, what-you-is-what-you-get people; they allow readers to relate easily causing their story to invade your life like you are living it.

LIKE ALWAYS, McGuire writes perfectly. This time she ends with an amazing twist that I honestly did not see coming at all!  I read the last page and screamed!  With some similarity to Travis and Abby’s progression McGuire uses Trent to make a note of said similarity which brings humor adding to a new uniqueness that is Trent and Cami.  With many new lovable characters and a door busting wide upon for the other Maddox boys I am ready to see the next installment of these crazy love stories,

I was not, however, expecting Beautiful Oblivion to be told by Cami’s perspective.  It would make since to continue in the same fashion as Beautiful Disaster began this journey.  I’m hoping MAYBE Oblivion will written from Trent’s perspective if we are indeed to follow in Disaster’s footsteps.  We can only hope.

An overall kudos to McGuire for writing another beautiful piece that had us gripped with every word on every page.  I love Trent and Cami and am looking forward to the next Maddox adventure.


P.S.- I also really want “baby doll” tattooed on my fingers…

The Red Diary

Last year after I finished 50 Shades, Beautiful Disaster, Banks’ Sweet Series and other big releases that took the romance reading women of the world by storm, I felt lost.  I still wanted something that was just as good but was not having luck.  In hopes of finding something to occupy my reading time I trotted off to the book store prepared to journey through the endless stacks.

I was however not prepared to find an older romance novel that was tucked away in the “pocket romance novels” you know, the ones you see little old women reading with the masculinity sexual over eccentric covers.  Well one caught my eye because it looked nothing like that HAHA.

The book was Toni Blake’s The Red Diary

“When Nick Armstrong finds the red diary, he’s shocked…and aroused. Here, in intimate detail, prim and proper Lauren Ash records her most secret fantasies. He knows he should never read it again, but the temptation is too hard to resist. Never before has he come across anything so private-or so sensual. Never before has he found such a potent weapon for righting an old wrong.

His strategy: seduce her, make her fall in love, then break her heart. He’ll be her dream lover in the flesh, weaving an erotic spell to free the passionate woman inside her. But Lauren is casting her own tantalizing magic, forcing him to let go of the past and surrender to her body and soul” (good reads book bio).

Nick and Lauren are your generic Romance couple.  When you think Romance novel you think them.  Their relationship is steamy and somewhat forbidden but it is an enjoyable journey.

Blake originally published in, I believe, 2004 but refurbished and released in 2013.  Bringing that original Romance feel and adding some realistic formality Blake delivers a great read with a steamy connection and a small amount of tension and action that makes The Red Diary a fun read that should satisfy!

I have currently picked up another one of her books that I will venture to later.  But take a look and check out The Red Diary for yourself.
