SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT: Books, movies and dream casting....

Welcome to our very first SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT!

Hello all, Lindsay here. Typically we only post reviews, blog tours and promos of books. Very rarely do we actually do a post that's more conversational (our bad; we're shy that way) but I just couldn't help myself today and here's the reason why:

I'm reading a totally awesome book (I know, HUGE shocker ;)) and it got me to thinking. The book is Keystrokes by Lisa Marie. Our hero is Kasen Wells, hot hollywood actor. Our heroine is shy "lady porn" book blogger Farrow Connoley. I'm a huge sucker for romances with hot bad boy actors and I'm always curious to see a female character that's a blogger in books. I love to see what they read, how they're portrayed and let's face it, they're like instant best friends since they get my love of books. 
The book (in a nut shell), is about Farrow, a book blogger, that is chosen to be the exclusive reporter/blogger for the hottest book ever being made into the most anticipated movies of all time (Think FSoG anticipation but with hot bikers!). As you may have guessed, Kasen has been cast in the lead role. Kasen was her dream cast from the moment she read the book, so this is a dream come true for her. So, this brings me to the purpose of this post...

If you could be chosen to be the exclusive reporter/blogger on set for your favorite book being turned into a movie, what book would it be? And what actor would you want to see in that part?

Like I said, this book got me to thinking. There are a number of books that I would love to see made into movies, but the dream casting is a little harder. I'm not a stranger to posting dream casting pics, but I tend to look for a someone that fits the character, even if they're not an actor. It's rare for me to choose an actor for a book's casting pic.

REVIEW: My Mr. London by C.C. Cartwright

23447999My Mr. London by C.C. Cartwright

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

Little did Julia Robbins, an American career girl, know how much her life would change when she moved to London. The firm she works for has Belgravia Underground, London's hottest band, as a client and she ventures out to see them play.

She never dreamed her London Adventure would have her falling into the arms of Richie Stone, the bands lead singer. Their attraction is instant and they sizzle together. Julia realizes she may be his flavor of the month and will enjoy the now. She refuses to believe she could ever be enough to hold Richie's attention for long.

Richie is not your stereotypical bad boy, and Julia is not as conservative as her outward appearance would suggest. Richie is captivated by Julia, but will he be able to convince her that they could have something special?

Check out Keystrokes by Lisa Marie! This book sounds awesome!



Farrow Connoley is a quiet, lonely book blogger with a weakness for Skittles candy and smut. The smut of choice is hard core, panty melting motorcycle club smut; full of dominant males in leather and covered in tattoos. A contest, by an online entertainment magazine, promises the winner exclusive behind the scenes opportunity as the sole blogger during the filming of the screen version of DIRTY. This is far too amazing for Farrow to pass up, considering the only man she has dream cast as the lead character, has actually been selected for the role. Kasen Wells is definitely the perfect match for the VP of the motorcycle club.

Kasen and Farrow begin a friendship full of teasing and jest, until one morning they realize that there may be something more. They soon realize that spaghetti dinners are awesome, and making out on the couch can take you back to your teen years. When Kasen takes Farrow home to Apex, he figures out exactly what he wants, and hopes that Farrow is at the same place until he learns of the new offer on the table from the Entertainment magazine. Will Farrow accept everything that Kasen offers, or will she chase a dream without consulting the man who wants to be her future?

18076876Reaper's Legacy by Joanna Wylde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

Reaper's Legacy is a raw and intensely erotic tale in Joanna Wylde's Reapers Motorcycle Club series.

Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart-and her virginity-to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn't have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach's step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he's never forgotten.

She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious-her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach's a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah's only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands-with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club-to give them a better life.

Living with outlaw bikers wasn't Sophie's plan for her son, but Ruger isn't giving her a choice. He'll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she'll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way.

REVIEW: The Defiant Hero by Suzanne Brockmann

357642The Defiant Hero by Suzanne Brockmann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

In The Unsung Hero, award-winning author Suzanne Brockmann dazzled readers with her remarkable cast of tough and tender U.S. Navy SEALs. Now her daring men in uniform return for THE DEFIANT HERO—a thrilling novel of steadfast courage, intimate passions, and the profound risks that are taken in the name of love. . . .

"The United States refuses to negotiate with terrorists." Meg Moore remembered the warning from her job as a translator in a European embassy. Those same words will spell out a death sentence for her daughter and grandmother who have been kidnapped by a lethal group called the Extremists. Meg will do anything to meet their unspeakable demands; anything—even kill—to save her child.

When Navy SEAL Lieutenant, junior grade, John Nilsson is summoned to Washington, D.C., by the FBI to help negotiate a hostage situation, the last person he expects to see holding a foreign ambassador at gunpoint is Meg. He hasn't seen her in years, but he's never forgotten how it feels to hold her in his arms. John could lose his career if he helps her escape. She will lose her life if he doesn't. . . .
