Recommendations from Peggy for September 2014.

In order to bring some more variety to my blog, I have asked some of my bookish friends to tell about the books they have in the past month, and to give us a recommendation. Today’s post is made by Peggy from Belgium.


I have read 9 novels in the past month, and the 3 books I enjoyed the most are:

1. Stinger – Mia Sheridan

2. In flight – R.K. Lilley

3. Lawful escort – Tina Folsom

(this book has a new prettier cover now but I found this one!)

The one I can recommend to all Aurian’s readers is:

Mia Sheridan - Stinger

Grace Hamilton was the girl with a plan. She knew exactly where her life was going and prided herself on always achieving her goals. It was who she was, and how she lived her life. She never stepped outside the lines, and never considered what she might desire and whom she was actually trying so hard to please. Until him...
Carson Stinger was a man who didn't play by any rules except his own. Working in the adult entertainment industry, he didn't care what others thought, and took each day as it came, no direction, no plan. He knew what women wanted from him and believed it was all he had to offer. Until her...
When circumstances forced them to spend several hours together, they walked away changed. But for two people who never should have meshed, overcoming the reality of their vastly different lives wasn't possible. At least not yet...
Author's Note: THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. The first two books in the series need not be read to enjoy this book. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

After reading the review from Aurian about ‘Lawful escort’ I wanted to read this book (series), so I did and I really liked the book and the second book also. I can’t wait to read the third book of this series. While surfing the internet I discovered a new writer, R.K. Lilley and her ‘Up in the air trilogy’. If you loved the ’Fifty shades series’ and you love kinky men then this series is something for you.

Mia Sheridan is also a new writer that I discovered through the internet. ‘Archer’s voice’ is the first book that I read from her and I really liked it. So I wanted to read more books from her. The next book that I tried was ‘Stinger’, I must confess that I wasn’t sure what to expect after reading the blurb but I wanted to give it a try and I’m so happy that I did.

The story is about Grace Hamilton, a girl who knows what she wants to do with her life. She has it all figured out. Even her love life is planned.
Everything is going according to plan until the moment she meets Carson Stinger. He wasn’t something that she planned.

Carson Stinger is a man who has no plan or rules. He lives his life like he wants to. The only thing he knows for sure is that women like him, they like him very much! So he gives them what they want.

Grace has come to Las Vegas to attend a conference, The International Law Students Association Conference. So when she meets Carson she first thinks that he’s also there for that same conference but then she discovered that he isn’t a student and that he’s there for the other conference, namely The Adult Entertainment Expo. An adult entertainer is not someone who she wants to know. So she quickly walks away from him. But when you both stay at the same hotel, it’s only naturally that you run into each other. And so they meet again and the third time they meet, they’re stuck together in the elevator for some time. And this is where they learn more about each other. Where they each get a glimpse to see behind the mask of the other person.
After this accident Grace decided to forget about her rules for a weekend and go with the flow. Both feel that this is a special weekend but they agree that it will only be a weekend of sex and nothing more. After that weekend they will go back to their own life. A simple plan but life is never simple. They both have a fantastic weekend and enjoy each other company. When the end of the weekend is there, it isn’t as easy as they thought it would be to say goodbye but they do it.

But that weekend has changed something in both of them and they both react to it differently.
Especially, Carson reacts heavily to this weekend and makes a big decision to his future, a decision that changes his whole life. Years pass and they both go on with their lives but that doesn’t mean that they don’t think about each other and the weekend they spent in Las Vegas. After years being apart they meet again in Las Vegas. They both live and work there. Through circumstance they meet again. The feelings are still there but there are some new obstacles in their way. Can they make it together this time?

But if you can’t stop loving someone for so many years, how can you stop now?

When I started this book I thought I already knew how the story would go but that wasn’t the case with this book! It started that way but it took a whole different turn and I loved it. I especially loved Carson. He is so sweet. I don’t want to tell much about the changes they make after their weekend because I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone but it took me by surprise. And for me that was part of why I love this book. I love it when a story takes me some place where I didn’t expect it. I can’t wait to read more books of this writer.

Aurian: Thanks for the recommendation Peggy! I am glad you enjoyed the Tina Folsom book. The other two authors are completely new to me, so thank you for discovering them. Not sure if I will ever read them though, as you kept sending me to the adult section of Fantasticfiction for the cover pictures.

  1. Oh nice recs! I love standalone novels and will check out Stinger!

  2. Hi Aurian, you do know that you have to be older than 18 to go there? ;o) Yes, these books aren't for everyone.

  3. I've only read one book by Tina Folsom, but it was smoking H-O-T, so I expect more of the same from Lawful Escort. Thanks for adding to my TBR pile! ;)
