Discussion while reading
I don't know...im about 12 % in and im not liking where this is going...I hate the 2 guys triangle sort of thing....ugh
Carol... If you trust me... continue reading... remember Alessandra Torre Never does anything in a straight line...
oh wendy...im not giving up...I remember sex love repeat and how much I loved that one...I know something has to be funky here
Good morning 'yous guys' (that's Philly slang) :-)
I'm about 22% in and it's starting to get riveting...something's up with Brant...the little hints make me think that this is something to be scared of!
You know I'll be reading today and not getting any work done hahahaaaa
I just started it this morning! I have to be honest, I have a secret thing for m/f/m books. :) I hope it is good!
I think I have the secret....I think....this is my thought...
(spoiler left out)
I can be so far off...but that's what I'm thinking so far.
SWEET! I looked at the spoiler, just FYI. :)
Oh how I love how my angel mama thinks......tee hee
Now I'm not so sure (spoiler)I'm so confused - Read on...read on!
“His eyes smiled at me, his mouth only curving enough to highlight what might be a dimple, no move made to cover the impressive organ that lay against his thigh.”
....what a way to start the morning. Thank you Allesandra Torre :-)
Where are my manners (fixated on his organ ) ? Good morning Angels :-)
Morning Ladies :)
Im jumping in :)
Carol, I'm trying so,hard not to open your spoiler tag. I'm at 13 % I have a guess as to what his secret is but I'm probably way off.
" Ways that will make your legs tremble around my neck. Ways that have me so hard and ready that I may not make it all the way there. Ways that will have you screaming my name and - - ”
Do not look......just read and let alessandra lead you.....promise it is worth it.
Oh I know she will.. I'm just wondering at. What % Carol took her guess because I don't have much to go off yet to make one.
I made my guess at around 25-30% and please DON'T look at the spoiler...cause I was right and it will give the story away!!
I'm almost done cause once I got half way through...I can't stop...I haven't gotten a bit of work done today...hahahahaaa
This is fucking genius!
I know it is just so fucking good
I have this sinking feeling that this is going to have a twist to the ending... (spoiler)
No no.... I have another one....( spoiler)
I can be totally off the wall here
Seriously Carol?.. I'm trying so fucking hard not to open the first spoiler so you hit me with 2 more.. UGH!!
Okay I'm starting chap 9 I told Carol my theory around ch 7 (spoiler)
Jahy you crack me up.....all I will say is we some very smart angels here....the major thing will be revealed soon Do Not Read Spoilers....
That should be the t-shirt given with any book by her....you will love it more by being blind....
Once you are more than halfway thru.....you will have enough info to reach another level....hang in there
I am REALLY loving this book! I didn't think I was going to love it this much at the beginning but I am so glad I am reading it!
Can I order a Brant of my very own please ? He's my dream man.
Ok I am 29% and she is going to find out the big secret. EEEP!
I still will give it a 5 star rating...cause I wanted 6 up till 80% but then brought it back down...
I'll wait for you girls to be done before I go into detail about it.
The wrap may seem a little pat....after everything they went through....the serious pain and working through everything
Well this is a tricky deal with all of her books... and i tried to touch on it broadly and then shut up- you will see when you read what i did-
I think it is almost impossible to really talk about it without spoiling it- because if you start to mention anything specific... it just leads to why, and questions... so i took the chicken shit way out and told them to read the book- :D
THIS BOOK IS KILLING ME!!! Yes, that was ALL caps. :| I am 50% now or so, I can't remember... Mike is... well... ya know... I just want to READ!! Hope to finish tomorrow. This author kicks ass.
It was great... Alessandra has yet to let me down... I seriously doubt she ever will either.
Carla's still reading ..... I think she's reading the sex scenes twice.
i should be done with this one in a hr or two..providing their aren't anymore hot ass scenes!!!
bwhahhahah..omg..you are so right...i just read one scene 3 times...i cant help it lee is yummy too!!!
Lee is everything a wet dreamer wants... tee hee
Im done *****AMAZEBALLS****...i loved it!!!!!
I think I owe my ipad an apology..I'm quite sure it has enough evidence against me to file sexual harassment charges...i spent half of the book doing this...
LOL!! Too bad the book didn't have pictures!! ;)
i know right...i swear these authors would sell more books if they had pop-ups!!!!
After the Book Discussion
I guess I'll start....I LOVED the book I LOVED the story and I LOVED the characters....
but I still can't it out of my head that it cleaned up too quickly and perfectly at the end.
I'm amazed that I'm the only one after reading the reviews that this bothered. Normally I am the one who follows the beat of the drummer instead of creating my own...so I'm not comfortable with this.
Here's my dilemma - do I follow everyone else and just write how PERFECT I found the book to keep the ruddy waters calm or do I speak my mind?
The deal is though - I did LOVE the book - I would have just liked to have seen a bit more drama and complications toward the end.
See my conundrum? I will get bashed if I voice my opinion!
I think I liked Lee the best :) I do agree that the ending seemed... crap what's the word... Too cut and dry maybe??
You should always speak your mind. PERIOD.
I am thinking the end was anti climatic for you... because of the emotional drain of the
I thing the most powerful scene for me was that time she had to(show spoiler)
... i wept...
i also was shocked when they
My favorite scene was when she called Brant(show spoiler)
. I loved that part.
You hit it on the head Wendy...it got to a point where the ending was anti-climatic...(show spoiler)
Oh...I know...I so didn't want her
...I loved him so much even though it kinda pissed me off(show spoiler)
...I would have been so outta there!
I didn't figure it was
...and I was pissed at her for(show spoiler)
I was like... WTF... why are you(show spoiler)
... what is your problem bitch...
I also was concerned about all of the
... like wht was her game.... but my mind kept trying to figure it out and I screamed out loud what i thought it was and then i sat back and was in it to win it- because i am not cool with(show spoiler)
... not my thing
you guys are so funny... The main thing is you were engaged with the book... it got you thinking.. plotting and trying to figure out wtf was happening... you thought it was hot cause the girl knows how to write sex... and your heart hurt with the(show spoiler)
... and then you got concerned about what was going to happen to(show spoiler)
... it never got you bored...
Honestly I didn't want(show spoiler)
..I wanted(show spoiler)
what needs to be said here is(show spoiler)
I know the(show spoiler)
I'll be honest, I looked at Carol's spoiler so I knew the whole time that Lee and Brant were the same. :) I still loved it though!
Jenna that was what so cool I thought about the story....even if you figured shit out early....it didnt matter because the idea and the way it was presented was interesting. ...I thought
I still loved the story even knowing part way through. :) 5 stars for me! She really is a fantastic author.
Well, this was a fantastic journey we all experienced and like we have said time and time again….Alessandra Torre NEVER lets us down with her imaginative mind!
Yes, I was the outsider (probably all around) that I had other endings in mind and I apologize straight up that I made such a big deal out of it….it doesn’t change the overall love of the book and how Ms. Torre can weave a tale of mystery and damn….don’t even get me started on her ability to write sex scenes!! Whew….warning….make sure you have an extra pair of panties next to you while reading….or in Carla’s case….clean your screen well!
We all enjoyed reading a book of this magnitude together and as you can see above…we never ran out of things to talk about!
