Month of Thanks

Hi Y’all!  It is November and that is always the month I am reminded that there are tons of things that I am thankful for in my life.  This year November will be known as the Month of Thanks. I am going to do 30 days of Thanks here on Geeky Bloggers Book Blog!  Each day I will highlight one author (and the book they wrote that moved me) and one blogger (and their awesomeness) that I am thankful for!  These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love.

I am thankful for Melissa Schroeder and her book Surrender!  I am going to admit that I don’t read a whole lot of really “naughty” books.  I love them occasionally but on whole I am pretty mainstream.  My poor cheeks would be a constant shade of red if I read more of the erotica genre.  I am thrilled it exists though because there are so many great stories that need to be told that can only be done justice through erotica.  One of the books I loved this year was Surrender.  Surrender was a book that just fit for me and was enjoyable from beginning to end. Any book that gives me a few hours of enjoyment and can be read in one setting is one that will stay with me for a very long time.  This one was fantasy filling and emotionally rewarding.  I highly recommend it!

Navy Seal Malachai Dupree has everything a man could want. Well, not everything. The one woman he wants is too innocent for his Dominant needs, so he plays the role of supportive friend even if it kills him.

Amanda Forrester is tired of being treated as if she were fragile. She might have been through a rough patch losing her husband in the line of duty, but she is not a wimp. Her feelings for Mal have grown and she is more than ready to be the woman he needs in and out of the bedroom.

One night she pushes him too far and the result is more than either of them ever expected. Mal wants forever, but after losing one husband, commitment isn’t in Amanda’s vocabulary. What she doesn’t realize is that Mal is one Seal who isn’t backing down until he gets exactly what he wants: Amanda’s total submission.

WARNING, the following book contains: Sexy Navy Seals, a stubborn woman, and of course, a little submission. This book has one of those hot Duprees, so you know that you will need a glass of water to cool off. Every Addict will tell you that reading a Harmless book is anything BUT harmless—so read at your own risk.

I am thankful for Simply Ali who has to be one of the most giving and talented individuals I know.  She is so supportive of the Romance community!  She goes out of her way to support and promote romance authors and reading.  She also does this despite her shyness!  She is just a fantastic human being and one everyone should get to know.  One of my favorite things that she does on her blog is  Simply Ali Salutes which highlights different organizations giving back to the community.  These have touched on all types of issues: Literacy, Women’s Issues, Bullying, and many more.  Each time it raises awareness and warms my heart!  She is someone who I look up to for her caring and giving ways.

  4. Ahh this is going to be a cool month. Are you sure you didn’t love it just because it has a sexy top off cover? OH MY GOSH! You are listening to Fourth Grave! I love the lady who narrates this series. I wish I had listened to it but beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to that highly coveted ARC!
