Annoyance turns to romance turns to passion in this story of a young couple heading to wine country to celebrate their first anniversary.

When her boyfriend Scott doesn’t pack until the last second and then expects to join the mile high club on a full commercial flight, Kerrie is annoyed at the start of their anniversary weekend getaway. But things immediately get better as the two of them take in the romantic scenery of California Wine Country. That just sets the scene, however, and the real togetherness begins when they get back to their room.

Starting with a passionate strip tease, things get interesting as they realize that they were given the squeekiest bed in the bed & breakfast they are staying at. Love, creativity, and passion are all they need, however, as they enjoy an anniversary neither will soon forget.


Kerrie and Scott were taking a quick weekend trip to a bed and breakfast in Wine Country for their first anniversary. Scott didn’t pack for their trip, so she had to do it, which only served to tick her off. Then he tries to get handsy with her on the flight, wanting to join the mile-high club, but she turns him down. When he tells her that he was really excited about their weekend and the romance of enjoying their anniversary that he didn’t think about all the mundane things before hand. Short but still good. My only criticism for this book is that it never mentions her name at all. The only way I knew her name was from the blurb.

New couple Evan and Sadie take their passion to the next level when they discover that all they need to do is trust each other

Told via alternating points-of-view, this amazing book takes you through the minds of a young couple as they start out concerned over what the other will think, each of them hesitating to ask for what they really want. Readers will recognize the tentativeness, fear, and caution of new love, while enjoying watching it blossom into what we all hope it will become.

This is the story of Evan and Sadie. Evan wants to try new and exciting things in bed but is afraid to ask for them, and Sadie, who faces the same challenge. We watch as the two of them slowly reach a point where they finally trust each other completely, which leads to an amazing experience that takes their relationship to an emotional and physical new level..


Sadie and Evan are a fairly new couple – just six weeks into their relationship, and we see both of them having the same kind of thoughts. They are each holding back on what they like because of the fear of losing each other. Short, but good! I did like this one a little better than Love Shots #1.

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.


~This review is for all 3 books in the Fifty Shades Trilogy~

WOW…I just absolutely love all 3 books in this trilogy. I love them so much that not only do I have all 3 books on my Kindle but as soon as I finished reading Fifty Shades Freed earlier today I went online and ordered all 3 in paperback.

Now I’m sitting here trying to put into words how much I love the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy without sounding like a babbling idiot but I don’t think that’s going to happen. So let the babbling commence…

I ABSOLUTLY LOVE TO READ. In fact I read so much that my husband has threaten to send me to reading rehab where I’ll be forced to watch TV in hopes of breaking my reading habit. But now that I’ve educated him about “hard limits” he has stopped threatening me about rehab and has now offered to buy me a Kindle Fire or an Apple iPad …I got the iPad.

The reason I love to read is because of books like the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy. The kind of books that put you on an emotional rollercoaster ride while transporting you to a different world. Out of all the books I’ve read, and there have been hundreds of them, the Fifty Shades Trilogy books are among my favorites. I was hooked from the very beginning and totally fell in love with Christian Grey and his fifty shades of fucked-up. I also love the chemistry between Christian and Ana and the journey they went on together as a couple and by themselves. I loved how their relationship evolved from being based on kinky fuckery mind blowing sex to unconditional, take your breath away, gut wrenching, passionate, soul stirring, true love. I laughed out loud while reading these books and I also cried. A couple of things that I loved about the books and had me laughing out loud were the emails between Christian and Ana. When the emails first appeared in Shades of Grey I made the mistake of only reading the main body of the email and not the signature line. Once I caught on to what was going on, I had to go back to the first one and re-read them and ended up laughing some more. Another thing that had me laughing out loud was Ana’s inner Goddess. OMG, she was freaking hysterical. Talk about your comic relief. I can totally see her having her own line of greeting cards based on her.


I was totally unprepared for how much these three books would pull at my heartstrings and have me in tears… and at one time cause me to sob. That one time was when submissive Christian showed up. When I read that I literally gasped out loud. I couldn’t believe it…It was soo wrong. I found myself holding my breath as tears started streaming down my face silently begging Christian to get up, to move, to say something, do something …ANYTHING as if I was kneeling right there with Ana fighting for Christian’s life.

I don’t think I’ve ever thought about a character from a book after I’m done reading it as much as I’ve thought about Christian Grey. If it were possible to will a character out of book into our reality as a real breathing human being, than Christian Grey would be standing in my bedroom wearing nothing but his soft ripped “playroom” jeans with the top button casually undone, holding his grey silk tie in one hand and a riding crop in the other, asking me what my safe word is…It’s vanilla I tell him (but I have no plans on using it). 🙂

Now for some shameless begging …

Ms. James I’m begging you to please, please, please, don’t let this be the last we hear of Christian Grey. I need more of him. Three books are nowhere near enough to write about him. Please you have to write some more. I don’t care if they’re Fifty Shades of Baby Pooh, or Fifty Shades of Paint Chips. As long as they have Christian and his fifty shades of fucked – upness and kinky fuckery …Then all will be right in the universe. 🙂
