Jason (Anita Blake,Vampire Hunter #23) by Laurell K. Hamilton

Book Description

December 2, 2014
“Enjoying pain with your pleasure is something you either get, or you don’t. If you get it, then you don’t really need it explained, because you know how good it feels, and if you don’t get it then no amount of talking is going to convince you it makes sense.”

But sometimes you have to explain the unexplainable, especially if the love of your life needs to understand, or she’ll leave you. Jason Schuyler is one of Anita Blake’s best friends and favorite werewolves, with benefits. J.J. is his lady love, an old flame from childhood who dances at one of the top ballet companies in New York. She’s accomplished, beautiful, and she’s crazy about him, too. Neither of them wants to be monogamous, so what could go wrong?

J.J. is enthusiastically bisexual, with an emphasis on the female side of things. She plans to keep sleeping with women, because Jason can’t meet that need, just like she can’t meet Jason’s need for rough sex and bondage. J.J. doesn’t understand why Jason isn’t content to go elsewhere for a need she can’t fulfil, so Jason asks Anita to help him explain.

Anita is having her own relationship growing pains with her only female lover ever, Jade. Jason suggests that J.J. might be able to help Anita with her girl problem, while she helps him with his kinky explanations. With some encouragement from a few other lovers in Anita’s life she reluctantly agrees, and J. J. makes plans to fly into town for an experience that none of them will ever forget.

Review –
This book was very disappointing if you read for depth in plots and engaging characters, but if you read for sexual pleasure, this is the book for you.  There is minimal plot and the characters are interested in only one thing, SEX.  It is very explicit and graphic.
I hope the next in the series has Anita hunting vampires, which is her true job.

Fifty Shades of Grey( 50 Shades Trilogy) by E. L. James

Book Description

Publication Date: April 3, 2012 | Series: Fifty Shades Trilogy (Book 1)

When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms. Shocked yet thrilled by Grey’s singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success—his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family—Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey’s secrets and explores her own dark desires.
Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
This book is intended for mature audiences.

Review –

I had not planned to read this series because of all the hype but my sister-in-law in Alabama persuaded me to give in and try them.  So, okay, I decided I would BUT I would not BUY them.  I put the first one on hold at our local library and was called a couple of days later that they had it ready for me.

I really don’t know what I expected but it certainly wasn’t  what I found.  It was much more descriptively ( I don’t think that’s a word but oh well.) sexual than I thought it would be and it actually had a plot which I also had not expected.  It was a very fast read and I took it back to the library in a day and a half and put the second one on hold…….more on that one later. My favorite parts are the emails between Christian and Ana, I thought the author did a good job with those. As a hold I learned more about some things that I’ll ever need to know. Enough said.

After reading this one I HAD  to go on to the next one, didn’t I?

If things sexual in a book bother you this is not the series for you, stay clear.
