Get Uncomfortable – Try A New or Different Genre or Author

Have you ever picked up a book or bought an eBook that was not your normal genre?  Maybe a story about a topic that was different than the rest of the books you have on the shelf?  Try it once and see what you think.  Challenge yourself to try a new genre, or a new author.

I did once.  I did it because of two of the authors in the anthology, Nikka Michaels and Eileen Griffin.   I have known these two ladies before they officially started writing books.  They have come on the literary scene with a bang!  The stories they write are amazingly hot and fun to read and they just keep writing and writing.  I am not complaining.  I am enjoying their work.

So they were a part of the anthology called Alpha’s Claim:Manlove Edition by Evernight Publishing.  This book has ten stories in it and I can honestly say after reading their two stories I tried a few others and didn’t like them as well, but honestly, this isn’t my genre.  It has nothing to do with the authors or stories, I do not read books like this often.  Well, I never have. But because of these two ladies, I read their stories and did enjoy them.  I was very proud of myself for trying something new and different. Not my norm.  But I am glad I did.

If You Can’t Stand the Heat Get Out of the Kitchen!

My review of “In the Raw” first in the In the Kitchen Series, by Nikka Michaels and Eileen Griffin.

in the raw

You know the old saying…if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. This is true of this story. The heat is definitely in THIS kitchen.

This story is about Ethan Martin aka “bad boy” who works hard for everything he has, which isn’t much, his sister Claire and James “Jamie” Lassiter, the Golden Boy who has it all, at least for now.

Their relationship is a true family and they rely on and care for each other. Jamie has a much larger battle in his own life. Born into a wealthy family who has his future mapped out for him, even before asking him. What happens when Jamie decides what HE wants to do with his life?
