To be a successful writer, one must read.
It’s not ME who says this, but it’s authors like Anita Diamant (author of one of my all-time favorite books, The Red Tent) and Stephen King.
They kind of know what they’re talking about.
Since most of our favorite authors don’t really have an outlet like a book blog to espouse their feelings on books they read, I’m throwing them a bone and opening up Smut Book Club to be a platform.
Thus begat Authors Love Authors.
Unrelated: Begat is my new favorite word.
My first author lover is actually the lady brain who had this idea in the first place: Tessa Bailey. Known for her outrageously dirty-talking alpha males, Tessa is one of my favorite authors. Not only is she super pretty (a requirement for me to like you) but she’s also a machine when it comes heh to pumping heh out must-read stories.
Here are 3 of my favorite Tessa Bailey books that need to be added to your Reading List:
With my gushing out of the way, Tessa wants to tell you about a book she just read and thinks you will love, too. It also happens to be very high on my Reading List.
Burned by Tara Sivec
+ Favorite Quotes
“You bet your ass I’m going to taint this fucking house.”
“You can play with your nipples, baby, but this,” I tell her as I cup her sex in my hand, “is mine. Even when I’m taking your ass, Lee, it’ll still be my fingers fucking your pussy. You don’t get to touch.”
Heat Level: Molten
Kink Rating: Mild = Some power play
Genre: Modern Romance, Erotica
In my mind, Tara Sivec became a master of writing reunited lovers with the Chocolate Lovers series. Loved those books hardcore. She nails it once again in BURNED with a couple that singes the pages with a long-carried torch. It’s a hot, heartfelt story of redemption with a huge heaping of sexy firefighter on top. Boom. You can’t go wrong here.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.[/box_light]
