Kid Rocha – Beyond Shame Book Review

beyondshame-400I know you should never judge a book by its cover, but the words “Bestselling author” made me buy the book from an author I have never read before.
Unfortunately, I made a horrible, horrible mistake that I have learned to regret since a month ago, when I first started reading the book.

I had really thought I was going to put the book in the abandoned bin but, heroically, I read on, hoping to see something better at the end, to at least find a plot…

Bad writing examples in 50 Shades of Grey

I have read the series and I’m ready to pronounce the sins. E.L. James needs a spanking. BuzzFeed had a top 13 list and now it’s time for us to do our own. There are only actually 12 shades of grey that are readily acknowledged but the British Art Council (13 if you know the secret handshake). I wondered where the other 37 came from, some sort of secret colour palette??

Fifty Shades Freed * EL James

When we last left our romantic icons, Ana Steele and Christian Grey, they were newly engaged and facing (a) Ana’s ex-boss, Jack Hyde, whom Christian fired in a fit of jealous pique when Jack made a pass at Ana and (b) Christian’s “Mrs. Robinson,” the woman who initiated him into his life of BDSM. Can these two crazy love birds find happiness and contentment? Thank goodness E. L. James doesn’t keep us hanging and gives us the GIFT that is Fifty Shades Freed.

50 Shades Darker * EL James

The 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy continues with 50 Shades Darker. The ‘Cinderella story on steroids’ continues with a happy ending/beginning. If you read the first book you know that Ana refers to Christian Grey as 50 Shades hence the book title. Christian has many moods and ‘personalities’ that lead Ana to this name for him.
