Slave To Sensation by Nalini Singh


Just as a side note, you look at the word keeper long enough and you're really not sure you are spelling it right.

Anyways, let's see if I can do this book any justice. For a real review go see Rosario and Jennie.

Dammit!! You'll do better to go to Rosario's and Jennie's.


Because I had a really long review all written up and proofed and everything and POOF it's all gone. First time that's every happened to me! Sucks huge lemons let me tell you. I don't have the patience to re-write and don't think I could if I tried.

So quickie, I loved the heroine and hero in this story. It was a beautiful new world that I can't wait to get back to. The bad guy was obvious but then, it's a romance book people.

I only had a problem with some logic at the end of the story and it only occurred to me much later. Course, I was tired so give me a break. Also, maybe it was just touched on lightly so that characters in later books can figure out 'the out'. Just saying.

I am going to re-write my new pet peeve. Reading the first book in a series and falling all in love with the author and her world that I want the rest of the books NOW!

So here is your mission if you choose to accept it. I need book recommendations on great hot paranormals that are past, oh I don't know, book four!!

Patience is so not part of my psyche.

Okay, I have to sign off because Blogger is acting like a huge jerk and I don't want to have to hunt down the people responsible for f-ing with my blogging!

Oh, C-Rex showed up today and then weepy Cindy came in right after that.

I'm just saying.

Then I had a panic moment on the way to a furniture shop that turned out to be just too far away and Bob had to turn the car around. I haven't had to deal with panic in a while but my fear of the flu is something that get's me completely off balance. Unlike my husband and most people I know I throw up and have the other for the 24 hours. If I just got the chills and some bottom stuff I wouldn't be so afraid but, the last two times I had the flu it took me down. Hard.

I got the flu shot last year but I don't know if it covers me until I get the next one. So yeah, I'm a little hard to live with right now. I'm also way too anxious to do anything for the next week or so which, lucky for me, no one was planning on visiting.

I'm still terrified to eat too much which then leads to my stomach hurting because it's probably hungry. This of course, causes me to worry that I might have the flu and voila, I'm crazy.

Crazy will be the host of this blog for the next little bit so hold on!!

Yep, I need to sit with a couple good books and just get out of my head for a bit!

I just finished this one too and plan to review it. I really liked it but had the same problem with the ending you did - just a tad confusing.

I know I'm late but I wanted to tell you how much I love the new template! Makes me want to change mine. Then I remember the whole lack of free time thing. *sigh*

Not that I don't love your posts, because I do, but I live for your random comments. LMFAO!!!!!

Re - flu, I just got it. I feel like shit smeared with cow dung. I am at work and so freaking irritable I wish I could pound the boss. I just want to smack somebody and it's just sad that I can't and that makes me more irritable.

I hope you don't get it. I seriously hope you don't and sorry to hear about the panic attacks. Those are horrible.

*hugs* <--but not too close so you don't catch the flu :-P

I love Crazy!! LOL I hope you don't get the flu.

I don't have any recommendations because the books I've read are only up to book 3 or number one themselves. I hate new series.

Jennie said...

I hate having to wait for series books too. But I'm having trouble coming up with any rec's for you. Have you read Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse books? They're paranormal and really good, but they're not that hot. Or romantic really. I mean, there's sex, but not in a one man meant for one woman kind of way, if you know what I mean.

Or Kelley Armstrong? I love her books, especially the first two which are about werewolves.

I hope the flu bug doesn't get you!!

Dylan said...

Hmmm, well I'm gonna have to add this to my TBR list, thanks a lot Cindy! LOL...great review, and I get it, it's a KEEPER!

I've got my fingers crossed that you don't catch the flu sweetie!

Colleen Gleason said...

Hey, I've got this on my TBR pile...have heard so many good things about it. Guess I'm going to be moving it up higher in the pile.

And, I know what you mean about KEEPER. Seems like there's too many Es in it, huh?

ReneeW said...

I just finished this too and loved it - a keeper! I completely agree with your pet peeve about series and I can't give you any recs cuz I haven't been reading paranormals that long.

I have talked myself out of a flu shot every year. Never had one. I'm afraid I'll get the flu from the flu shot. Makes sense, huh? But you should be fine until you get the next one.
