hot + bothered {reads}

I can't go another day without a post on this HOT topic!!

Everyone by now is familiar with New York Times Bestseller "Fifty Shades of Grey" where every woman's new erotic obsession, Christian Grey has an ebb and flow relationship with Ms. Anastasia Steele.  I have found when talking to woman they either LOVE them or HATE them {no "grey", pun intended!!}.  A woman's reaction to these book reveals a lot about her personality.

It's a new generation but why change if it isn't broken, right?  I remember growing up and watching my mother read romance novels with half naked men on the front.  I would laugh and go about my business thinking she was crazy. But was she really?  Well, a husband, two kids and 15 years later, hell no she wasn't!!!

I find so many woman are quick to judge someone who is reading these books but are we doing anything different than they were 20 years ago??  I find woman's reactions fascinating.  Times have not changed they have evolved and woman are much more open to share.  Talking of sex was very taboo and todays woman are much more in tune and open about their sexuality.  We are still doing the same things our mothers were doing {behind closed doors} when they were our age.  We just have nooks, more stress {which = a more compromised sex drive} and social media to share.  With that being said, to all the woman who bark at reading all these erotic novels, by all means, clean the cob webs and go get laid.  

Enough of the debate......  What's next?

If you are desperately left wanting more then Sylvia Day's Bared to You is a must read.  Turned off by all the BDSM with Christian Grey?   The Crossfire Trilogy may just be your new favorite.  Not quite as rough, there is no Red Room of Pain however, if you don't like a man in control, I highly suggest you go back to Pride and Prejudice.
Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness... 
He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I'd never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily...

I am not going to share any spoilers however, I thought Sylvia Day's novels were an easier read and much more realistic.  I will tell you that only 2 of the 3 novels are published.  So you will be left wanting more!

If you are or have read any of these books you may be experiences some of the repercussions.  
Here are five of my scenarios. 
1.  A bruised bum.  That moment your husband takes a deep breath and smacks that ass on your request.  Only to find you taken by surprise and you have slapped him off the bed.  No, I don't know from experience.
2.  A recently formed bad habit of biting your lip.  No, it's not sexy.  Just ask my husband.
3.  An elevator ride just took on a whole new meaning.
4.  When people would refer to me as Mrs. Smith, I would ask if they were referring to my mother-in-law.  Calling me "Mrs." just took on a new liking, along with the natural affects it does to my libido.
5.  Only nine months for "greybabies".  Will this be the start of the next baby boom?

My Christian Grey....
