Sick, but still funny!

Well, my youngest daughter was sick last week. My husband and oldest daughter are sick this week. I am hoping that I won't get sick in the process, because they are already keeping me busy. Anyone who is reading this, I hope you are happy and healthy.
I love my husband very much and even being sick, he can still make me laugh uncontrollably. If you are not interested in sexual humor or too much information about my sex life, then you should stop reading now, as I don't want to offend anyone.
My hubby and I are laying in bed watching TV when my hubby turns to me and says, "You should give me a blow job. You offered last night to go down on me last night, to make me feel better. Then you didn't, and now I feel worse. So, it's all your fault. So now I need you to go down on me." I laughed at his audacity since he basically didn't seem interested when I offered. Then with completely a straight face he says, "Yes, I think it would be good for me. You know suck out the poison like you would do with a snake bite!"
Even sick, my hubby is still funny!

Is this how it is?

     I haven't been posting much of anything, because I haven't felt the need to talk about much and I haven't been reading as much as I seem to be fascinated with Facebook all the time now. I have to learn to step away from the phone or computer, but I feel like I might be missing something important! Which if I am being honest with myself, I know that I am not!
     I am constantly hearing on Facebook and by other authors, how amazing Kelli Maine is. She is the author of "Taken" and she has a new novella coming out in February based on her "Dolls and Doms" series. I have not read her books, because I was on the fence about the dark nature of her plot lines. "Taken" is based upon a billionaire kidnapping a woman and how she comes to fall in love with him. It almost makes me think of raping someone and then they fall in love with that person? The concept is just a little weird for me, but I should not judge, as I have not read the book and I may actually love it if I read it. That being said, I have read one teaser from the "Dolls and Doms" series and it didn't make much sense to me, because I didn't really have the background story and again it screamed dark and possibly the character has Dissociative Identity Disorder (also known as Multiple Personality Disorder)? Which again, I am good with since I am a counselor, but I was taking off my erotic reader hat and putting on my counselor hat and it just wasn't working since I didn't have the full background. I read to escape, not to psychoanalyze. I wanted to give this author a shot and see if I could find a bunch of teasers and maybe start from the beginning. No such luck, I can't find them and it looks as if the author probably has taken them off her blog to get ready to publish the novella.
     However, in the process of looking for teasers from "Dolls and Doms," I came across a post about her characters from "Taken" and what they would look like in 15 years. The man, Merrick, was trying to get him some with his wife, at an inopportune moment I might add, but the wife Rachel, was thinking about kids and emails? How sad is that? I know this happens, but seriously, people wonder why men and women cheat on their spouses. You have to do the work! There have been plenty of times in the last 13 years that I have fallen in and out of love with my husband and days that I just didn't want to have anything to do with him. Those times have been few and far between and we have gone through lulls in our sex life, but for the most part, I consider us lucky and blessed to have one another. Marriage doesn't come easy and life can be draining. Kids swamp us with their needs, but that doesn't mean you don't have to put forth the effort!
     Merrick was trying to be spontaneous and sexy and even though they were interrupted, Rachel could have said, "Save that thought for later?" Women have to stroke the males ego and be sexy, even if that is not how you are feeling at the moment. Couples get what they put in and if you aren't putting in any effort, then that is what you will get in return. I'm dying to know if this is how it is for you or others? I thought about adding to this blog ways to spice up your love life or good mental health options for your relationship, but do people want to read about this?
     Also, if you have any insight about Kelli Maine's writing and want to share your opinion, I would love that too! Please let me know, am I missing out on a great read or should I stay away?

Definition of a Good Teaser!

     Kristen Proby, one of my new favorite authors, released late last night an extra-long excerpt or teaser from her upcoming book "Play with Me." If you haven't checked out her Seattle: With Me series, then you are missing out and after you read this post you should pick up a copy today! The order of the series is "Come Away with Me," Under the Mistletoe With Me," and then "Fight With Me" and they are all excellent reads!
     This particular blog post came about because I decided to tell my husband about Kristen's teaser this morning. My hubby then commented that he would show me a good teaser and decided to demonstrate what a good teaser is by starting to seduce me and then just when things were getting good, he stopped, got up and walked away. He then proceeded to turn his head to look back at me, wink, and then said, "Now that's a good teaser!" He then had the audacity to chuckle!
     So, I just want to let you know that the definition of a good teaser is to leave you SATISFIED, but also leave you wanting more! Kristen Proby, Jenn Foor, Shayne McClendon, Emily Snow, Michelle Valentine, Michelle Leighton, and Katie Ashley are usually phenomenal with giving out good teasers!
Please check out Kristen's teaser at

Does my heart good!

     I was at the store and one of my former clients ran up to me and told me how well he was doing and how much I helped him move on to middle school. He was so sweet and kept going on and on about what a wonderful counselor I was for him and his family. Sometimes you just need to hear those things and it was very sweet of him to bring me some chicken soup for the soul.
     I also got a little sweet vindication because the person who terminated me last year, is being terminated themselves for all their poor choices!
     All around sweet day!

Giddy feeling!

     I really wanted to put a gif of Tom Cruise jumping up and down on Oprah's couch, but seeing as I can't seem to figure out how to do that without uploading a video from YouTube, just imagine me jumping up and down on the furniture. I see some of my favorite authors put gifs on their blogs, but I am computer illiterate! If anyone knows how to post them, please let me know!
     Okay, so let me tell you why I am giddy! I just got to have a nice short chat on Facebook with my favorite author, Jenn Foor! She is the bomb! She constantly makes me laugh, cry, and aroused in her books! My husband likes her, because he gets to reap the benefits! *wink, wink* Also, she keeps her book prices low and she must write constantly, because it seems like every other month she has a new book out. I love you, Jenn Foor! I so wanted to gush and tell her how much I love her writing, but I was also trying to be cool! I don't know that I know how! Lol. I kept thinking, stop bothering her, she is probably writing! It probably might seem silly to others, but this is like meeting a famous celebrity to me! I am on cloud nine!
     By the way, if you don't know Jennifer Foor's writing. Check out: "Hope's Chance" or The Mitchell Family series: "Letting Go" #1, "Folding Hearts" #2, "Raging Love" #3, "Risking Fate" #4, "Wrapping Up" #4.5, and "Wanting More" #5. She has a new book, "Hustle Me" and #6 in The Mitchell Family Series coming up in the next few months. I can't wait and I will be sure to post about them.

I'm in heaven!

First of all, check out this pic of David Gandy! He is so damn sexy! I'll be the water and he can drink me in! Lol ;)
Second, I spent a good portion of the afternoon yesterday setting up my Goodreads account. I already had one, but none of my close friends read books like I do, so it really wasn't that big of a deal and never got on Goodreads. Well now I have almost 100 friends on Goodreads through this blog and Facebook account! Woo-hoo! I got an e-mail this morning telling me what some of my friends were reading or reviews that they had recently made and so with the pic and the love of Goodreads, I am in heaven!

Another day

I have been lingering around 70% of the book "Someone to Love" not because I can't get through the book, but because I have been distracted with other things. I don't know how my favorite authors get anything written when they are constantly on blog tours, Facebook, or chatting with readers. I love that they give me all sorts of attention or give updates, but I feel like I can't focus because I don't want to miss out on something. I'm like a kid with ADHD! So, without further delay, I'm going to take a deep breath, put down my phone and step away from Facebook so that I can read! I told the Scarlet Siren I would let them know about this book when I completed it and that was 3 days ago!

New author plug

There is a new hot author in town. DK Michaels, is looking to release "Cyber Romance" in April 2013. Here is a teaser from the book...(I got the authors permission to post this and please do not share or copy without the permission of DK Michaels)
"Siana had all intent and purposes for this day she planned in her mind today she was going to commit the most unspeakable of acts any adulteress could commit her adrenaline and excitement was at the point of no return Lachlan had no idea what he was in for."
I look forward to reading more snippets and finding out more about this new Indie author. I will keep you posted when I hear or see new info.

How far would you go?

I am currently reading a book, "Someone to Love" by Addison Moore; so far I am at 49% and it is okay and seems to be worth the $.99 that I paid for the ebook. Cruise, the male hero, has recently gone out and purchased 3 mice and let them loose in the room across the hall where the heroine, Kendall, is currently sleeping just so that she will come to his room at night and sleep with him where he just happens to be naked. Which brings me to my question, how far is a person willing to go to get laid? If you are actually inviting vermin on purpose to live in your home, doesn't that reek of desperation? It's also in my opinion, Disgusting!!!
I then started thinking about all that I had ever done to have sex. I have jumped across the seat to attack my husband, got dolled up in sexy clothing, and even pleaded but nothing compares to placing vermin in my home!

Absolutely Beautiful!

Kellan Lutz is so hot!

Waiting for Wanting More

I have finished "The Proposal" by Katie Ashley and I am waiting for "Wanting More" by Jennifer Foor to come available on Kindle.
For any of you who have not read these authors works, you should stop reading this blog and download their books; because they are awesome!!!
Anyway, like I said, I was looking for "Wanting More" and some self-help books popped up instead. Most were tips on ways men can get their wives in bed. Which makes me think, I must be in the minority, because I am always trying to get my husband in bed. Now granted, I am 37 years old and the reviewers of these self-help books were complaining that no matter what they did, if a woman was over 40 years of age they just didn't want to have sex because their sex drive diminished at that age. I guess that is possible, since I am not that age, but I can't imagine that less than 3 years is really going to change anything. My husband says that I am insatiable, but I tend to think that these men are not doing something right or these women are not having orgasms? Because really, why wouldn't a woman want an orgasm everyday (if not several times a day!)
I also know how popular erotica books have become lately and the demographics are that the women are mostly reading these books, so women must be wanting to get their freak on? Am I wrong?

Feeling blah

I hate after I read a book that I can sometimes feel bereft at the loss once I am finished and that is how I have been feeling for days since finishing The Barter System by Shayne McClendon. I never thought I would get so attached to this book! I thought it was formatted like those erotica short stories, which are perfectly fine, if you are just trying to get a cheap quick story, but nothing that you get invested in. Well, by the second participant in Riya's dissertation, I was hooked! I balled like a baby after the fourth participant. What a roller coaster of emotions! I also never thought I would enjoy her trip to NYC, due to the controversial relationship, but then I fell in love and I want to know more about these types of relationships.
I found out today from Shh...Mom's reading post on Facebook that Shayne plans to write more on Tawny, Riya's best friend, and Lucas's twins. I absolutely can't wait and jumping up and down with the news!
Until then, I need to find a book to get me past these feelings!!!

Strange looks in the Walgreens drive thru

     Okay, yesterday I read Seduction and Snacks by Tara Sivec and today I have started Futures and Frosting also by Tara which is the second book in her Chocolate Lover's series. I seriously don't think I have laughed so much while reading a book in my entire life. I laughed a lot while reading Wallbanger by Alice Clayton, but never this much. I don't know if a person who is not a parent would laugh as much as myself, but having a 5 year old and an 8 year old changes the dynamic for me.
     I just received the strangest looks while waiting in the Walgreen's drive thru. I used to hate waiting in the car line, but now it just gives me a chance to read on my Kindle Fire. The main character, Claire, has a four year old son named, Gavin, and he reminds me so much of my 5 year old. The things that come out of his mouth are absolutely hysterical. Wonderful writing Ms. Sivec!  The people in the other cars around me must think I am an idiot while I am waiting in the car line laughing like a hyena! I just have to say that I knew there was a reason that I don't listen to Rihanna's S&M song while my children are in the vehicle, because I knew that they would be singing just like Gavin. My daughter already goes around the house singing, "I'm sexy and I know it" and I when she does that my thoughts always go back to Chris Rock's stand-up comedy routine where he says his main goal as a parent is to keep his daughters off the pole!

The beginning of this blog...

This is the story of the start of how it all began. I lost my job in May 2012. I am a counselor and I thought I was standing up for the rights of a kid and the process brought on an ethical dilemma and I chose to side for what I thought was best for the child. My employer thought I should have chose their side. I didn't and therefore lost my job. I was devastated. I at least got the small victory that when I appealed the decision that my employer was shown to be in the wrong. However, it didn't change my employment status.
I have always read books throughout my life and when I was reading a good book or a good series, I could never put it down. I would become obsessed with the book(s) until completed. I didn't really have time for this with school or work, and probably never read a book in graduate school, unless it was a textbook.
I kept hearing about the Fifty Shades of Grey books on the radio or everywhere I turned. So, here I was with a forced vacation and so I decided to get the books. I discovered my love of reading again and I was obsessed. I read the stories like five times. I loved the stories, not because I learned I was a sexual being and discovered I could have sex in a different position than the missionary style, like some women. I have always been a very sexual person, but to know that there were writers out there like this amazed me. It wasn't just pornographic writing. I have read plenty of Danielle Steele novels, but none of them made me feel like the Fifty Shades novels did. Then I went on a search of other books like these and discovered a whole world of erotica and other women out there like me.

I think I finally have a Facebook page for all my authors and followers! It seems kind of stupid to me that I spent a lot of time creating a new page all because I wanted to like a photo of my yummy looking Gandy and I didn't want to offend any of my conservative friends or family members! I am sure that the pic would be taken off of Fb due to the sexual content because he is pulling down his briefs and the root of his penis is showing. It was fucking sexy as hell, but my stupid shame or fear kicked in! Why do I care? By the time I got through the whole process, I just wanted to say "fuck it, I don't care!" But I still do? What is wrong with me???

Mel's All In Diary!

This is the start of my new blog! I am starting this, not because I am a great writer, but I read a lot and I hope this can be a place for readers to get info about the books that I am reading. I am putting all my thoughts and feelings, so that is why the title of my blog is All In.
