I have to admit that I, myself, need a twelve-step program. I think I might start one—maybe I’ll call it Sexy Book Readers Anonymous! That could go two ways: A the reader is sexy, or B the reader is reading sexy books. Either way, it’s a winner.
I just finished ordering seven books for my Kindle. I read the first free one, and low and behold, there was another free one. Then…I downloaded six more by the same author. I admit it. I am a binge reader. If I enjoy that first book, I’m destined to read them all—and in order, thank you very much.
I recently read a series that I really enjoyed, only to find out that that author’s publisher had encouraged her to write other books set in the same locale and with a lot of the same characters with a co-author. Those books were published under the other author’s name first so I did not know about them. That scenario created a ton of confusion for me, and I ended up reading the books OUT OF ORDER. I WAS NOT HAPPY! Things were happening off the time line. People were couples who had not yet gotten together. Disasters had happened and I didn’t know about them.
You won’t find that in my series (see the Bookshelf on the website www.skyemichaelsbooks.com). I like to have a good, sexy story with a happy ending and all plot lines wrapped up before the end of the series. If you’d like to try a Skye Michaels series, I would suggest starting with The Black Iris Club. It’s only four books. The heroines are two cops and two attorneys and their stories intermingle, although all the books are stand alone. The BDSM sex is hot, and the stories are good: dealing with a serial killer, human trafficking, gang violence and veterans’ PTSD issues. I have always felt that if you don’t have a good story, you don’t have a book—no matter how much sex there is or how hot.
I hope you will give Kaylin, Chloe, Gabby and Nikki a chance!
