Protecting Your Emotional G-Spot by Suzette R. Hinton

     You may not realize it, but we have more than one G-spot. Yes we have the traditional sexual one but we also have one attached to our emotions. We have to learn to protect ourselves emotionally. Many times we ignore our intuition and those little red flags for false happiness. We need to learn and grow. Each relationship can teach us something. Now let's see what else Ms. Hinton has to say.

     This is a great common sense approach to dealing with the positive and negative in our relationships.  I read this one three times to absorb all of the information. The writing is amazing and the information very accurate. You'll see yourself and your friends in this book. It confirmed many things I already knew and gave me more insight. Every woman (and man) should have this book. It's one you can read and re-read. The information and examples will always apply. Get one for you and your BFF. This book would be wonderful for book groups too. There is much to discuss in this one.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because the information will always be relevant.

Darkly, Deeply, Beautifully: The Ceruleans by Megan Tayte ~ Release Day!


The Ceruleans: mere mortals infused with power over life and death. Five books; one question: If the might of the heavens were in your hands, would you be sinner or saint?

With her mother’s life hanging in the balance, Scarlett is devastated – and done with being in the dark. She wants answers, all of them.

But when was her pursuit of the truth ever straightforward?

Pulling a single thread impels a great unraveling. And each revelation will force Scarlett to rethink what she thought she knew about the Ceruleans, the Fallen, her family – herself.

All that came before was a mere prelude to this, the last journey. From London to Twycombe to Hollythwaite to Cerulea, Scarlett will be stalked by the ghosts of what has been, what may have been and what may come to pass. Until she reaches the place where it all began, and it all must end.

But in the final reckoning, none will survive unscathed. And some will not survive at all.

In this explosive conclusion to The Ceruleans series, all must be defined by their actions: sinner, saint… or something more beautiful entirely?

     This book is a fresh way of looking at good vs evil. The story is a deep and wonderful one. Well written and characters well defined, you'll be lost in this book right away. The family in this book are larger  than life and exciting. I enjoyed the twists and turns the  story takes while imparting answer that are long overdue. It also gave us a reminder. Things aren't always what they seem. Ms. Tayte's storytelling ability is off the charts. She knows just how to pull you in and keep you there. I think you're gonna love this one so much! 

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because the ending blew me away.

Meet Megan Tayte

Once upon a time a little girl told her grandmother that when she grew up she wanted to be a writer. Or a lollipop lady. Or a fairy princess fireman. ‘Write, Megan,’ her grandmother advised. So that’s what she did.
Thirty-odd years later, I’m a professional writer and published author by day, and an indie novelist by night. My fiction recently earned me the SPR’s Independent Woman Author of the Year award.
I write the kinds of books I love to read: young-adult romance fiction with an edge of paranormal. Young adult, because it’s the time of life that most embodies freedom and discovery and first love. Romance, because I’m a misty-eyed dreamer who lives for those ‘life is so breathtakingly beautiful’ moments. And paranormal, because I’ve always believed that there are more things in heaven and on earth than are dreamt of in our philosophy.
I grew up in the Royal County, a hop, skip and a (very long) jump from Windsor Castle, but these days I make my home in a village of Greater Manchester. I live with my husband, a proud Scot who occasionally kicks back in a kilt; my son, a budding artist with the soul of a palaeontologist; and my baby daughter, a keen pan-and-spoon drummer who sings in her sleep. When I’m not writing, you’ll find me walking someplace green, reading by the fire, or creating carnage in the kitchen as I pursue my impossible dream: of baking something edible.

     Story 34 How I Found My Top Hat. This one takes us back to when Oliver was just a kitten. He spies a top hat in the window of a store and loves it immediately. Oliver knows he must work to get the money to buy it. There is a surprise for Oliver though.
     Story 35 Oliver In The Circus. Have you ever wanted to be part of the circus? Such fun it would be. Oliver is hired by the circus to do many jobs. He enjoys each of them because they keep him in the circus. Will he make it to the spotlight?
     Story 36 Ship Wreck. Oliver and Jumpy are on a ship when a terrible storm hits. They aren't sure what is happening until they are told Oliver must find a tiara. The tiara is for King Xylon's bride. I wonder if Oliver finds it.

     Such variety when it comes to children's stories are a huge plus! Parents get bored just as the children do, reading the same old thing. These stories take children all over.

    Oliver and Jumpy  are best friends. They have some wonderful adventures together and we get to share it with them. In this book, story 31 is about a Crockery Party. Story 32 is about the Shark Frenzy and story 33 is about a Small World. Each adventure is full of fun . Let's see what happens.
     Story 31 the Crockery Party. This is  New Year's Day, but it's also the day the dishes come alive! They sing, play and make a fine dinner. Everyone looks forward to the day and a chance to have fun with their friends.  
    Story 32, the Shark Frenzy. Whales love to play. They love jumping out of the water and splashing each other. They enjoy chasing each other too. Unfortunately the sharks like to sneak up on you when the whales are out to play. Perhaps we can all play together?
    Story 33 the Small World.  Did you know there are tiny beautiful things in the grass? Oliver didn't know either until one day he shrinks down to the size of an ant. He finds the world, though small, is just as beautiful as ours is.
