To Know or Not to Know

 

 

While reading Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, I got thinking about life’s secrets, both big and small. Specifically, it made me wonder if I would really want the answers to those unknowns, if it were possible.

 

A few times in my life, I have consulted psychics, and I actually got some pretty amazing readings. At a psychic fair in NYC, a young man told me he didn’t see children in my future. He was correct.

 

Another psychic told me my life partner would be a wealthy professor in New York. She saw two women around him, and they were near water.

 

Years later, I met my current husband…a professor whose only living relatives were his mother and sister living in Bremen, a German port town. His mother actually lived overlooking the Weser River before she died. AND I was told he would be sure of the relationship long before me, which was so true. So, she was pretty accurate.

 

Okay, she was off by a continent with the NYC part. And, judging by the tiny house with no closet space and our secondhand car, he is by no means wealthy. Correction: not wealthy in terms of money.  :-)

 

Still, did knowing any of this really help me? For sure, I could have done without hearing I would not have children. It depressed me for a while, until I shrugged it off, telling myself the man was a quack.

 

As for my husband, I guess it felt good thinking someone was in the offing, but it took so many years from the time of her prediction that I actually forgot about it until we were already married, having long ago labeled the poor woman a quack, too.

 

So, here’s what I would like to know:

 

If someone could give you accurate answers about your life or the big cosmic questions, would you want to know?

 

If so, what questions would you ask? Both personal and general...

 

Which questions would you rather leave unanswered?

Beneath the Sheets (Wet Dream Series)
Beneath the Sheets (Wet Dream Series) - Angelica Boone Super smexy read. Very steamy little book that is all about the sex. There is a touch of story but it is more about the naughty bits.

Surprisingly interesting even if it is more of an erotic read.

Satin Sheets in Space - Jessica E. Subject What do you do when it turns out the man or men of your dreams are literally out of this world?Danyka was losing hope that she would ever find her prince charming that is until her boss sets her up with the perfect man, but she starts to doubt her earlier thoughts when she realizes that her perfect man is actually an alien and he has a twin!Danyka was a fun character to get to know and it was easy to relate to how she felt about the dating scene. She also learns that sometimes going with the flow of things can be the best thing that ever happened to you.The twins Galan and Volan are as different as night and day, but make a great combination as friends and as lovers. These two are very persuasive and Danyka didn’t stand a chance. The love scenes were steamy and will leave you begging for more so I highly recommend this fun and sexy read!

Satin Sheets in Space - Jessica E. Subject If you haven't read any of the books in the 1NS series, let me give you a little info before we start. 1NS is short for 1 Night Stand, a business ran by Madame Evangeline. Madame Eve does background checks on her clients and then matches them up for one night stands. You never see or hear from Madame Eve in any of the books I have read and all the stories are short stories.

Having read a few of these stories, I knew it would be a quick whirlwind of a story with a HEA a the end. And I wasn't let down.

Danyka sounds like a wonderfully delightful woman who society treats pretty badly because she is on the tall side. Having all but given up on dating, she is given a gift of a 1NS from her boss. Not having huge expectations, she is still let down when she thinks she has been stood up by her blind date. When she gives up, she is approached by a man who is taller and wider than her form. Instant attraction forms between the two.

Galan is ready to settle down, but only with one woman. He wants a woman he can continue to see the stars with. While going stopping by Earth, Galan signs up for 1NS hoping to find his mate, but he hasn't told his twin brother, Volan, his plans. When he meets Danyka, she is perfect in every way for him. Not able to help himself, he pleasures her in an alleyway before taking her to his ship, where he must reveal he is an alien.

The love scenes were over the top hot in this very short novella. Instantly there is an attraction between Danyka and Galan. Their large heights work well together and they accept each other right off. One thing that got me was that Galan and Volan had blueish tinged skin. That would have tipped me right off something wasn't quite right with them. Danyka takes it all in stride having believed there was life beyond Earth for many years.

She accepted the two men very easily. Almost too easily, but at time she was just thinking it was for the night and she wanted to experience things she would never get a chance to experience again. But she doesn't know right off that they have picked her for their mate. Never would they force her, she must choose: to stay home safe and sound, or to choose them and a lifetime of love and adventure.

For a short story it was a fun afternoon read while I was on vacation. I would have loved to read a full length novel of this story, but that isn't what 1NS books are about, so I didn't have that expectation when I started reading. This was a great addition to the 1NS series!

Scott's Satin Sheets - Lacey Alexander Originally posted on Joyfully Reviewed: http://www.joyfullyreviewed.com/reviews/Jan10/scott%27ssatinsheets.LA.html

Payton Albright has everything a woman could want – except a life of her own. At twenty-six, she still lives with her parents on their yacht, sailing from port to port, shopping, and mingling with other rich people. But Payton’s suffocating in her gilded cage, desperate to let her inner naughty girl out. When she spots a handsome man on the deck of a catamaran, she decides to let her wild side come out to play.

Scott Fletcher is stunned by the drop-dead gorgeous woman who flashes him. He’s eager to learn who she is, but his pleasure at finding out is dimmed by the fact that she’s his new boss’ daughter. Scott needs to keep his all of his jobs so that he can one day own a boat and business of his own. And rolling around in the sheets with little miss rich girl is the perfect way to make sure his dream doesn’t happen. Still, Payton has some pretty nice satin sheets, and the woman herself is an intriguing mix of sweetness and sin, so perhaps some things are worth a bit of a risk…

Sun, sand, and sex – what could be a better backdrop for a deliciously wicked tale? Scott’s Satin Sheets is a perfect blend of pulse-pounding love scenes and sweet romance, with two protagonists who are sure to charm. I loved watching Payton grow from the bored rich girl who craves sex to a woman who realizes what she really wants out of life and will stand up to get it. She’s likeable and straightforward which makes her a heroine that’s easy to connect with, for all her wealthy background. Though he’s miles away from Payton in terms of money and social standing, Scott is rich in sensuality. He’s also kind, considerate, and charismatic. It’s easy to see why Payton finds him impossible to resist. Together and separately, Payton and Scott are engaging characters and I had such a good time watching them fall for each other.

Though it’s the fourth book in the City Heat series, Scott’s Satin Sheets stands on its own. Fans of Lacey Alexander’s work will remember first meeting Scott in his best friend Chris’s book, Key West (the third book in the Hot in the City trilogy). While Chris and Carrie appear in Scott’s Satin Sheets, having not yet read Key West, I can say that, though I didn’t miss anything by not having read the book, I will definitely be buying it.

Ms. Alexander’s books are always searingly erotic, and Scott’s Satin Sheets is no exception. From first page to last, Ms. Alexander delights with her red-hot prose and utterly endearing characters. Fantastic!
