E. L. James created a predictable storyline but took all the advantage she could get to make it a bestselling series. The manuscript started as a Twilight erotic fan fiction and no doubt great part of it’s success comes from grown up Twilight fans looking for a sexy read. On the other hand, this fact  doesn’t justify or glorifies it’s mistakes, but confirms its success and helps throw out of the window some prejudice t...

  Dead of Winter doesn’t do justice to this author’s talent, delivering a somewhat predictable plot, not enough development but packed with action and moments of shock!   I have to begin this review by saying I’m a huge fan of Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series, and I’ve read them with great excitement. Poison Princess was a win, and Endless night even more (and I read it twice)! I love the sexual tension she’s able to...

  Real, intense, fulfilling. My first impressions were that this would be an unrealistic story with characters falling in love at first sight, blindly. I could’t be more wrong. It’s been a long time since I’ve read such fluid writing . The story moved forward at a good pace without slow points, and I was immersed, laughing, feeling anxious and emotionally connected. The intensity and sexual tension made the sex scenes re...

  What can I say to make you love this series as much as I do right now? Maybe a pic will do.. Well, there’s no enough words, you have to see it. It’s amazing how feminine this series can be, there’s attention to detail, an interesting love story, incredible visual and amazing actors. I only read the first book, OUTLANDER, after the fist episode. I’m suspicious to talk about the book because of that, so I’m n...
