Friday Reads #2

So I'm still rereading Beautiful Creatures.... I think I might put it to the side for now. I am not wanting to read at all. This year is all about me just enjoying reading again. Not putting pressure on myself. But yet I kinda am putting pressure on myself.

What do you all do when you feel a reading slump coming on? I know some people like rereading a favorite book to help them get back into the swing of reading. I am finding myself just wanting to watch true crime shows... It is the only thing I have been watching the past week or so.

I do have plans tomorrow night with my family. We are celebrating my brother and his girlfriend's birthdays early. It will be a good time. I sometimes need time with my family. It is the best therapy in the world.

What are you reading this weekend? Any fun plans? Tell me in the comments!!

Happy Reading, Ashley

Under The Weather

Hey My Fellow Bookworms, I didn't get much reading done over the weekend. A sinus infection that I've been dealing with on and off for years decided to pop up again. So I just tried taking it easy and reading whenever I felt like it. I'm currently at 226 pages of the 561 of Beautiful Creatures. It is slowly coming back to me. I am hoping to finish this up this week. But we will see.

Besides reading, I watched alot of the ID channel on DirecTv. I go through phases of watching that channel and then not. Right now I'm addict to true crime shows.


Happy Reading, Ashley

Friday Reads #1

These posts will be up on Fridays telling of my plans for the weekend. As well as the book or books I am currently reading or hoping to get to over the weekend.

Right now for the first ever Friday Reads post. I decided I wanted to finish up The Castor Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. I am rereading book one Beautiful Creatures.I first read this book back in 2013. I'm only on page 61 out of 563.

Guess we will see how far I get or if I finish it on my Reading Wrap Up post on Monday or Tuesday.

I don't have any other plans other then the usual house cleaning and taking care of the furbabies.


So hopefully I can read a lot over the weekend.


What plans do you have over the weekend? What books are you reading?
Let me know in the comments!

Happy Reading, Ashley

My Review:
I did receive an ebook ARC of Up In Smoke by T.M. Frazier exchange for an honest review. I have read all seven previous novels in the King series. So I was super stoked to get my hands on this bad boy. I fell in love with Smoke and Frankie. Their heart breaking pasts and how they grow into something together was wonderful to read. I was glued from the very first word until the very end. I am sadden to have read it so fast. 

This book was everything I've come to love from T.M. Frazier. Smoke and Frankie are quite the duo. I loved reading about each of their backgrounds. Seeing Smoke bond with Bear,King, and Preppy. Made my heart all warm inside. I adored this book just as much as all of Tracey's books. Words won't ever give justice for how much I love this book!!! I am so glad to have been given an ebook ARC of Up In Smoke. Tracey thank you for another amazing male and female main characters. This was one crazy ride. 

5/5 stars... I'd give a billion if I could!!!

Happy Reading, Ashley

Reading Wrap Up #2

I know I should've posted this yesterday. But it slipped my mind. I finished rereading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling on Saturday afternoon. Oh I love revisiting Harry and Hogwarts. It feels like hugging an old friend. I continue on reading on my kindle I Only Have Eyes For You by Bella Andre. That book was so cute and sweet. I loved Bella's books.

I decided to pick up The Unwelcomed Child by V.C. Andrews its alright so far. I'm really not liking the main characters grandparents. But I guess you aren't supposed to like them. Not sure what I will pick up after finishing it.

I spent some time on Saturday night with my family. It  was a good time. Although I sometimes feel misunderstood by them. I'm sure everyone feels that way at times with their family. Right?

How is your reading going so far in February? How many books have you read for the month? I've read 4 books in the month.

Happy Reading, Ashley

* Other books in the King Series DO NOT have to be read to enjoy Smoke's book. Up in Smoke can be read as a standalone.


Excerpt:

“All these bruises,” Smoke muses. “And not one of them caused by me.” He trails a hand up my arms and down my flat stomach. “Pity, but I still have time to leave my mark on you yet.”  
My entire body stiffens. I’m as rigid as a corpse. 
Smoke chuckles and I’m glad I’m facing away because his laugh is pure torture, causing his erection to vibrate against my folds which are aching for more contact. 
“You will be punished, hellion. You can be sure of that.” 
I look over my shoulder and meet his dark eyes which darken even further as his pupils dilate. His lingering gaze rakes me over from my feet to my breasts and back down to the space between my thighs. He licks his full bottom lip. 
My stomach flips. My will to fight him off doesn’t waiver, but my body isn’t getting the message. My core clenches again. I turn back around to face the tile, digging my teeth into my lower lip until I taste my own blood. 
His chest presses against my back, and his hardness pulses between my legs, rubbing against my inner thighs. He squirts some shampoo in his hand, working it into my hair. He tilts my head back and rinses my hair then slides his slick and soapy hand down my body. 
I’m breathing rapidly now. Short quick breaths I can’t control. There’s a deep rumble in his throat. His hand travels lower and lower on my stomach until it’s between my legs. He’s working his thumb over my swollen nub, sending sparks of need, pangs of pleasure, and a wave of self-hatred, surging within my battered body and bruised soul. 
“What…what are you doing?” I ask, seeing flashes of white hot lust behind my closed eyes. 
“More questions…” his voice a hearty amused rasp. His fingers circle my clit while he continues to rock his hard cock between my legs. The pressure building is so strong it borders on painful. 
Tears leak from my eyes. I’m so fucking mad at myself for being turned on. For Smoke being right. I’m so wet. He feels it. There’s no way he can’t feel it.  
He leans in close. I’m stone still except for the tremors gripping my body. He licks the tear off my cheek and groans. He dips the tip of his finger inside of me and I tighten around the intrusion. It’s a foreign sensation. Strange. It feels both wrong and right. Pleasurable and painful. “Your tight little pussy is weeping too. I wonder if its tears taste the same.” 
I look over my shoulder as he withdraws his finger and sucks it into his mouth. He groans. “Fear or desire. They both taste real fuckin’ good to me.” 
He places his hand back between my legs. When I try to squeeze my thighs together to keep him out he parts them with his knee on a grunt and begins circling my clit again. This time harder. Faster. 
I’m staying as still as I can, but when I feel something begin to happen inside my body. The sparks he ignited within me are all crashing together. I can’t hold back. My face scrunches as I try to fight the orgasm fighting its way out, but it’s no use. I can’t fight it. It’s too fucking strong. I’m so fucking close. 
I arch my back without thinking, pressing my ass against him, begging for more. For what I need to push me over the edge. 
Smoke hisses. “Oh, what I could do to this beautiful little pussy.” 
The pleasure builds and builds as he strokes me harder. Faster. I’m about to come all over his fingers when the feeling is lost. 
I spin around. 
Smoke is gone. 
I can’t see through the steam so I shut off the spray and wipe the water from my eyes only to see Smoke toweling off in front of the sink on the other side of the bathroom. 
The only proof I have of what just happened between us was real is his cock. Erect. Thick. Huge. The purplish swollen head bobs against his abs, jutting out over the top of the towel he wraps around his waist. 
“What…what just happened?” I stammer, leaning back against the wall for support. 
Smoke steps forward, and when I go to jerk back, he reaches out and pinches my nipple painfully hard. I yelp and leap back, slipping on the tile, falling on my ass, taking the shower curtain down with me.
Smoke rips the curtain off my head and glares down at me with a triumphant grin on his evil beautiful face. “What just happened was called punishment and you got off easy. Next time I’ll split that tight pussy in two with my fucking cock.” 
He goes to leave but stops. “You want pain?” he asks. “I’ll give it to you. You want pleasure? Now that’s something you’re gonna have to earn.”  
He leaves, slamming the door behind him. 
I release a shaky exhale. 
I’d hoped the rest of my time with Smoke would be tolerable, but there’s no fucking way that’s going to happen. Not now. Not with my skin crawling with need. I’m losing my mind. About where I am. About what this is all about. About this beautiful horrible evil man. 
I feel like I’ve already been split in two. 
What Smoke is doing to me is far more than punishment. 
It's  pure fucking torture.
