WWW Wednesdays (March 6, 2013)

Bee Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly event where you share (1)What you’re currently reading, (2)What you recently finished reading, and (3)What you think you’ll read next.

The stranger

I have a confession. I was one of those people who read The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. I had to find out what the hoopla was all about. The books was fine. I guess folks were shocked with all the bondage and spanking going on. Honestly, that did not shock me at all. Hell, I’m a big fan of the movie Secretary with James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Its a quirky movie. Its not for everyone. But hey, check out the trailer.

Anyway, I follow movie director Rod Lurie on Facebook and he recommended this book because he’s thinking of buying the rights. I asked him what made this book so different from Fifty Shades and he says its written more intelligently. Hmmmm. Yall know I had to roll my eyes at that one. Its on my Kindle. Since I rarely use it to read books, I think I will read this one next after Splintered. Lets see how intelligently someone can write BDSM scenes. Plus this book will give me a much needed break from zombies, YA novels and drama.

The Stranger 

Kasie knows who she’s supposed to be. But one passionate night with a mysterious stranger will teach her who shewants to be.

You should sleep with a stranger, her best friend whispers in her ear as they take to Vegas for one last pre-wedding fling. Despite her best intentions, when Kasie Fitzgerald enters the casino and sees him, a man whose tailored clothes belied a powerful, even dangerous, presence, she loses herself to the moment. Maybe it’s the dress, much shorter than she’d ever normally wear, or the Scotch, but something makes her give herself over to him more completely than she’s ever done with a man before.

It was supposed to be just one night. But right as she’s thinking she wants more, he shows up in her office with an agenda. As the billionaire CEO of a company that’s engaged her PR firm, his demands just became her reality…and he desires so much more than just some attention in the boardroom.

  1. It’s great taking breaks from a genre. I know I’m heavily into legan thrillers right now and it actually helps with not being so focused on zombies for the uber-teenth time, if you know what I mean. I have to confess, though, I have yet to read a zombie novel *GASP*! Yes, you read that right. Not a one. I guess I’ve watched lots of zombie movies to get the general feel for the genre. I want to read World War Z, that’s on my to-read list along with the Warm Bodies. For now, it’s nice reading something other than zombies!

    • Damn, I just sat here and wrote you a freaking book and I deleted it. LOL. Now let me try rewrite what I lost.
      Oh my!! GASP! You haven’t read a zombie book. That’s blasphemy. Ha! Not really. There is so much zombie stuff out there that you don’t have to read a book to get it. I’m not a literary writer (just a poor journalist) but I think we also like to read author’s work for their style. Anyway, what are you writing a about. I noticed on your fbook page (yeah I hunted you down :)) that your book is about zombies. If you feel comfortable, can you tell me more about it. I’m nosey. Its the reporter in me. I have to be all up in the business. Plus I admire writers. Plus I’m glad you reminded me I need to read World War Z before the movie comes out. I don’t know how I will like it because its not written in a story format. Its first hand accounts told to a journalist about the zombie epidemic. As for Warm Bodies. It was a good book. I enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by my blog Jack. 🙂

      • I finally have a chance to respond to your question, Lakeshia. I wouldn’t call it nosy if you’re a reporter. Curiosity, s’all. If you’d like, I can grant you an book-centric interview that can coincide with the release date. I’ll just need the questions ahead of time. How does that sound?

      • That sounds great to me. I look forward to being able to read it and ask all the questions I like. 🙂

      • I’m going to inbox you on fbook. I can’t hold a conversation via comments on my page. LOL. So just look for it.

  2. I read the Fifty Shades trilogy, too! It was shocking for me and I was quite disturbed when I was reading the first book. I was like, “Wat da fuq did i just read?!” wahahaha! I thought it was good until the third book, there was just so many repetitions. It was like the author couldn’t think of something new anymore?! I haven’t read another book from this genre, but I’ve been seeing the Crossfire series a lot of times. But wow, you got me here at “You should sleep with a stranger” hmmmm. Haha!

    • LOL!!! I guess for some folks it was disturbing. I do remember one scene in particular and I was like “Aint no way that would EVER happen and if it did, that was one trifling woman” LOL I agree about the last book. It was just OK. They could have wrapped up that story line in the second book. I’m interested in the Stranger. I think its only a novella and not that long. I just want to see why the film director think its written more intelligently than Fifty Shades. I bought it on my Kindle for like $2. Girl you know they always have those Kindle book specials. And that is the only reason I bought it. I will be checking it out after Splintered.

      • yeah, those deals are great! haven’t used my kindle for a while though. let me know what you think later! if and how it’s really intelligently written 😉

  3. The whole BDSM thing does nothing for me, I prefer things a little plainer, but still spicy, so I am hoping eventually a non bdsm mainstream erotica will make the charts
