Filthy Lies (Blackstone Dynasty, #2)Filthy Lies by Raine Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thank you for another must read! This is a very addictive series. Love the angst, it keeps me captive to every Raine’s words or book.

We’ve met Winter and James previously in book one of this series ,so I couldn’t wait. Glad she gifted me this Arc!

Loving the Blackstone family so it was easy to connect with Winter Blackstone and James, well sigh … didn’t disappoint.

Their chemistry was making me hot! 🙂

Winter has been in love with James since she was 15, swooped her off her feet when he came to rescue, but her love was kept as a secret for many many years.

James loved her for many many years too but to him she was of limits. She was his best friend Caleb’s little sister!

Until fate brings them together and will test them through sadness and happiness, is love ever be enough?

I recommend this book, this series.
Definitely a must read!

Women’s fiction – Women’s writing

Curious about it so I’m researching…


Women’s fiction is an umbrella term for women centered books that focus on women’s life experience that are marketed to female readers, and includes many mainstream novels.

Different from:

Women’s writing, which refers to literature written by (rather than promoted to) women. There exists no comparable label in English for works of fiction that are marketed to males.


The Romance Writers of America organization defines women’s fiction as, “a commercial novel about a woman on the brink of life change and personal growth. Her journey details emotional reflection and action that transforms her and her relationships with others, and includes a hopeful/upbeat ending with regard to her romantic relationship.”

At the Women’s Fiction Writers Association, women’s fiction is described as a story where the plot is driven by the main character’s emotional journey. Women’s Fiction includes layered stories about one or several characters, often multi-generational that tackles an adult character’s struggle with world issues resulting in emotional growth. It may include elements of mystery, fantasy, romance or other subgenres, but is not driven by these elements. The writing is high quality and accessible. Upmarket fiction often falls in this category, and is appropriate for book clubs.


In the indie ebook world, the genre is king… How Indie Genre Fiction Ebooks Are Thriving Online 

In both traditional and indie publishing, there is substantial gender-based sorting of authors. Both types of publishing sort authors into genres, but in traditional publishing there is also an additional pathway for allocative discrimination related to publisher type… Comparing gender discrimination and inequality in indie and traditional publishing

Moving away from the word Women…

People read fiction to travel to fictional worlds, where one’s responsibilities are few and one’s experiences are many. But fiction also enables us to change our personality… Change Your Self: Read Fiction

… it appears that the science fiction genre prompts a style of reading that is less attentive to characters, more attentive to the world of the narrative, and yet results in poorer overall comprehension… The perception of literary merit seems to be tied to the inclusion of explanations of a character’s thoughts and feelings, and not the absence of such explanations… The Lowbrow Status of Science Fiction

Golden Beach goodbyes

End of series with the best conclusion we can hope for. Separated for 15 years reminds me of my own 15 years apart. Years at college, last high school years, first loves, first heartbreaks.

Seeing those after all these years can leave you questioning again your feelings.
People move on and are not the same…

The author made it hard although this couple needed it.

This Golden Beach Series of books is complete. Haven’t read them all but the last two encouraged me to try and meet all the other characters.

Enjoyable read.

Rock God :: A Rockstar Romance by Alex Wolf


Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendrix, Freddie Mercury…

They say I’ll be bigger than all of them.

They throw around words and phrases:

“Could be the greatest ever…”

“Revolutionary sound…”

I don’t give a sh*t about anything but my music. It’s my art. My escape.

Until I run into a fiery redhead coming out of the bathroom of my favorite dive bar. Literally run into her.

Both of us pressed against the wall. Her panting against my neck.

Bristol’s different—quick-witted and snarky, not the usual groupie. She doesn’t care that every record label in the country wants to sign my band. She didn’t even know who we were until tonight.

But, she wants me. They all do. They want me to be that one mistake they tell their friends about after they’ve settled down in a subdivision and popped out a few kids with the perfect, even-keeled husband.

That one time they slept with the bad boy rockstar on all the magazine covers.

There’s only one problem with Bristol—I don’t want to stop seeing her.

I don’t want anyone else looking at her, touching her, or calling her.

She drives me insane.

I have to make a choice.

Do I want Bristol or do I want to be a Rock God?
