He definitely wasn't supposed to get that email...

Subject: My Boss.

Have I already told you that I hate my boss today?

Sexy as hell or not, this pompous, arrogant, ASSHOLE asked me to pick up his dry cleaning the second I walked through the door. Then he told me that I needed to take his Jaguar to a car wash that was ten miles outside of the city, but only after I needed to stand in a never-ending line to buy some type of limited, hundred-dollar watch.

I honestly can't wait to see the look on his face two months from now when I tell him that I'm quitting his company and that he can kiss my ass. KISS. MY. ASS.

All those former fantasies about him kissing me with his "mouth of perfection" or bending me over my desk and filling me with his cock are long over. OVER.

Your bestie,
Mya

PS--Please tell me your day is going better than mine...



Subject: Re: My Boss.

No, you haven't already told me that you hate your boss today, but seeing as though you've sent me this email directly, I know now...

Yes, I did ask you to pick up my dry cleaning the second you arrived to work to day. (Where is it?) And I did tell you to take my Jaguar to the car wash and pick up my thousand-dollar watch. (Thank you for taking five hours to do something that could be accomplished in two.)

You don't have to wait two months from now to see the look on my face when you tell me you're quitting. I'm standing outside your office at this very moment. ( Open the door. )

No comment on your "fantasies," although I highly doubt they're "long over."

Your boss,
Michael

PS--Yes. My day is definitely going far better than yours...

DIRTY DOCTOR

by: Whitney G.
Release Date: March 5th, 2017
Read Date: April 23rd, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
Pages: 122

"Lean back on the table and spread your legs for me ..." 

Being a doctor in New York City has never been easy. Especially for someone like me, who has a private practice and an incompetent staff who insists on leaving me to fill in for them.

Over the past six months, I've performed one too many pap smears, three too many "breast exams," and scrubbed in on several reconstructive surgeries. (This would be acceptable, if I was still interested in general medicine, but I'm not. I'm supposed to be a goddamn therapist ...)

When my team finally came to their senses and decided to bring someone more competent into the practice last month, I was actually elated.

Until I realized that our new "doctor" was none other than the woman I was supposed to meet for dinner two weeks ago. The same woman who stood me up with nothing more than an "I can't meet you anymore, sorry," after we agreed to move our online talks into reality.

I haven't forgotten any of the filthy fantasies she told me about, and I never deleted our dirty messages. And if she thinks that I'm going to act like a "professional" and pretend like that shit never happened, she has another thing coming ...

MY RATE FOR BOTH BOOKS


I love easy reads. They are quick and always, always have a HEA. Whitney G is an amazing author, so I knew that when I picked up these books I was going to have a good time and I did.

The first story was something that I would wish it happens to me, I swear. I would love to work in a Publishing place. I mean, really, who wouldn't? Reading all those books before anyone else and all that. Plus, the sexy AF boss that has a secretly crush on me? HA. Where do I sign?

The second story is not for me. I don't like medicine or science, but I have to admit that the whole story was super hot. Because really, who wouldn't want to match with a super hot doctor in a dating app? The downside is that it results to be your boss, but, oh well.

You see, both stories are totally worth to read. They made me happy and I'm sure it will make anyone happy too, so I totally recommend.

[Short Review] The Protector, by: Jodi Ellen Malpas

THE PROTECTOR

by: Jodi Ellen Malpas
Release Date: September 6th, 2016
Read Date: April 22nd, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
Pages: 384

People think they have Camille Logan nailed: daddy's girl; beautiful, spoiled young woman with her father's bank balance to fund her lifestyle. But Camille is determined to have a life free from his strings. Out on her own, she's made mistakes, including one that found her clawing her way back after a stint in rehab and plenty of bad press. Now, after fighting so hard to be independent and happy, she finds her life threatened as a result of her father's ruthless business dealings. Caught between resentment and fear, Camille prepares herself for the measures her father will take to protect her. But nothing could prepare her for the ex-SAS sniper who crashes into her life.

Jake Sharp resides in his own personal hell. He was distracted from duty once before, and the consequences were devastating--both personally and professionally. He vowed never to let that happen again. Accepting the job of bodyguard to Camille Logan isn't the kind of distraction from his demons he should take. Women and Jake don't mix well, yet protecting the heiress seems the lesser of two evils. But Jake soon discovers that she isn't the woman she's perceived to be. She's warm, compassionate, her presence settling, and his duty to protect her soon goes deeper than a well-paid job, no matter how hard he fights it. He needs absolution. He comes to need Camille. But he knows he can't have both.

MY RATE


I have always loved Jodi Ellen stories, from the moment This Man fell in my lap, her writing captivated me and making me fan of anything she writes. This book was not an exception, but I have to admit it wasn't her greatest hit for me. I loved the idea and all, but something was missing. She writes these perfect epilogues and I missed that in this book. I cry because of it.

The Protector's story is about that, a protector. Jake Sharp is an ex-soldier who, now, protects people for living, meaning he is a bodyguard. His latest assignment will turn his life forever. Camille Logan is famous in the country. Model, clothes designer, you name it.... but also she is the daughter of the biggest shark in the country too, making her a target for all the threats her father receives. The last threat made it a little more personal, so Camille needs a bodyguard. Jake. These two will get more entangled than my hair when has not been washed.

The story has it ups and downs for the first 300 pages, after that everything was up and up until everything fell apart in the last page. I wanted it end better, but I'm all good with how ended so... I'm good. It was a good read, you read it.

  

[Review] Eighteen: 18, by: JA Huss

EIGHTEEN: 18

by: JA Huss
Release Date: November 18th, 2015
Read Date: April 22nd, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
Pages: 316

Eighteen is hard.
And so is Mateo Alesci.
He’s hard to read, hard to predict, hard in every way that counts. He wants things from me.
Dirty things, nasty things, forbidden things.
And I have to give in.
His attention is completely inappropriate, but I can’t say no. The way he looks at me… the way he watches me through my bedroom window… the way he drags me deeper and deeper into his completely forbidden fantasy world just… turns me on.
He knows it turns me on.
He holds all the power. He holds all the cards.
He holds my entire future in his hands.
And I have to give in.
Because Mr. Alesci is my teacher.
And I need everything he’s offering.

MY RATE


I have to say, this book was not what I was expecting, it was more. I was expecting the typical story in where the teacher (this case a male) flirts with the barely legal eighteen year old student and fucks her and blah blah blah. The story does have that too, but it has even more. I did not see the plot twists coming, but I was a little let down at the end.

Holy shit! I did not knew it wa based on a true story until I was making this post. Now, I'm wondering what's true and what's not and I feel kind of bad for giving it four stars. But I'm rating it like that, not for the story but because I didn't like the end. Don't fuss. I meant that the end, did just that, it established an end, but told me nothing about their future lives. I just wanted a little more... a girl can dream, right?

Character wise... Mateo was a sonofabith, but a good and pretty one. I hated that all his answers were questions... well, most of them. But I guess that all of it was part of the bigger scheme of what he actually was. Shannon; Shannon was a good character. She was tough, but real tough. She wanted things and she made possible to get them.

I liked the story. It was a good one. So good that it was so late at night, but I couldn't sleep until I read it all, so I ended it up reading it until 2am, but, hey, I finished it.

#ReviewInAFewWords [2]

Now, this is the type of post in where I type short reviews of books that I read long time ago or books that I forgot to review once I was finished with them. I got a long list of books, so I will divide in different posts and post them once in a while. Anyways, I might not remember much of them, but how they made me feel will always stay within myself, right? I hope so.

THE HUNGER GAMES
CATCHING FIRE
MOCKINGJAY

by: Suzanne Collins
Released Dates: Sept 14th, '08 - Sept 1st, '09 - Aug 29th, '10
Read Dates: April 17 - 21, 2012
Format: Paperback
Pages: 374 - 400 - 400

This series, this series right here made me fell into the pit of full time bookworm. I went from a read books when she wants, to a she read books every damn time. After this series came so many others, that I cannot count them with all my fingers. I fell in love so much with this series, but interesting enough I never re-read them and I think I never will. ::shrugs::

I loved how everything was planned. How romance was inside, but never was the first topic to talk about. I hated the love triangle (because I always hate them and forever will). I loved the end and the epilogue and how everything came apart. I hated that so many people died, people that I loved and wanted alive.This book crushed me in so many ways, but it made me grow up and understand that life is not as pink-colored as I thought.

Thanks to the author of this book for making it and thank to anyone who made the movies, because those movies made them justice and I loved every single thing of them, just as I did with the book.

The Wolves of Mercy Falls #2 & #3

LINGER
FOREVER

by: Maggie Stiefvater
Release Dates: July 13th, 2010 & July 12th, 2011
Read Dates: January 6th, 2013 & January 7th, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
Pages: 369 & 405
Damn, I remember so little of these books and I feel so damn much. I remembered being crushed with all the ends, because even though they might not have ended in cliffhangers, they ended with me in pieces. I loved all the characters, but Sam was my love. Cole was sweet too, but nothing like Sam. Sometimes I hated Grace, because I remember her doing stupid things.

I remember being near the end of my bed waiting for the story to move its ass to the main problem. I remember reading all these books with an Ed Sheeran song in the background over and over again (if you want to know, it was Kiss Me). I remember crying because people that I cared about died or did not had the ending I wish they could have gotten.

You see, that's what I remember, my feelings. Nothing more, nothing less.

BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE

by: Annette Curtis Klause
Release Date: August 11th, 1997
Read Date: November 1st, 2011
Format: Paperback
Pages: 264

If I read the Hunger Games a long time ago, then this book goes way before that. I was very intrigued in fantasy, I breathed it, so when this book came to my hands from a friend of back then, I couldn't stop from opening and reading it in a few hours. Then I commit myself to watch the movie.

I have the shame to admit that the movie was way better than the book. From what I remember, which is little, I hated so so much the end. The main girl character was a badass, but she submitted to the big bad wolf and I was pissed. I couldn't believe my eyes in what I was reading. I like my girls fierces. Yes, sometimes they have to let things happened, but never, never submit to the pressure of a man. So, I was really bummed out because of the end, but the story was well written and constructed so, there was that.
