I don't have a whole lot of free time to read. It's not because I don't love to read. I enjoy reading fun, light novels. I want nothing that's going to make me think too hard. I just want to be entertained when I'm reading for pleasure.
Why? Well, all day long I'm thinking. I read things that will help me grow my business. I've got books, and ebooks, I have to read to learn new things about social media, podcasting and vlogging. Every day I'm writing for my own website, or for another website.
All I do all day is THINK. Make decisions. Use my brain without any breaks.
When I want to just lose myself. When I want to just be entertained, and not think at all, I turn to mindless novels. I turn to total and utter smut. It is what it is, and I have to be honest, I LOVE IT. There's nothing better than cheesy writing, and a fun topic!
Over the summer I received a copy of Playing With Fire from the author herself, Renee Graziano. She was a guest at an event I attended, she was outrageous and humble. I totally loved her, even though I'd never watched her show on VH1. Honest truth? I'd never heard of her, or the show, until she was introduced at the event. It didn't matter, she was awesome and I felt compelled to read the book after the event ended.
It was a combination of loving her, and the fact that the book came out April 8th, which happens to be my birthday! I couldn't let the book go unread, right?
It's not going to win an award for the writing, but it's really entertaining. It's fun, light, and it is absolutely filled with "romance." Notice the quotes around romance? Yeah, that's code for something else. You make your own assumption of what the "something else" is!
It's a total guilty pleasure book, and meant to be a guilty pleasure. If you blush at the thought of anything relating to sex, this is not the book for you. Next time the husband is out, the kids are with him, grab a drink, a great snack and grab the book. It'll keep you turning pages until they come home, and you'll be disappointed to have to put it down!
Just remember: this will never be considered a classic. Just a fun read!
