The Sunday Times and New York Times Bestseller. Although Jodie is only eight years old, she is violent, aggressive, and has already been through numerous foster families. Her last hope is Cathy Glass…
Cathy, an experienced foster carer, is pressured into taking Jodie as a new placement. Jodie's challenging behaviour has seen off five carers in four months but Cathy decides to take her on to protect her from being placed in an institution.
Jodie arrives, and her first act is to soil herself, and then wipe it on her face, grinning wickedly. Jodie meets Cathy's teenage children, and greets them with a sharp kick to the shins. That night, Cathy finds Jodie covered in blood, having cut her own wrist, and smeared the blood over her face.
As Jodie begins to trust Cathy her behaviour improves. Over time, with childish honesty, she reveals details of her abuse at the hands of her parents and others. It becomes clear that Jodie's parents were involved in a sickening paedophile ring, with neighbours and Social Services not seeing what should have been obvious signs.
It’s clear that Josie needs psychiatric therapy, but instead Social Services take Jodie away from her, and place her in a residential unit. Although the paedophile ring is investigated and brought to justice, Jodie’s future is still up in the air. Cathy promises that she will stand by her no matter what – her love for the abandoned Jodie is unbreakable.
Book 1 in my Glass-A-Thon!
I picked this book up a few days go as Cathy Glass has very kindly agreed to guest on my blog. So I decided to do a Glass-A-Thon and read as many of her books as I can :) I have since been told by a friend that this is the hardest of Cathys book to read, and I started with it.
This is the story of Jodie, an 8 year old girl who has very aggressive tendancies. Whilst reading the book, you soon find out why.
Jodie had been through five foster carers in just four months, so Cathy agreed to take her in to her home and help her. Cathy soon learns when speaking to Jodie, that her parents and their friends sexually abused her, she was part of a paedophile ring. The abuse you hear about in the story is awful, I had to stop reading a few times, sometimes to tell myself that this was real and not fiction, and other times because I couldn't see the writing infront of me for the tears dripping from my face. I cried a lot reading this book. I cried when Cathy first finds out, from Jodie, about the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father, mother, and other sickening people. I cried when Cathy said goodbye to Jodie at the end when she went to live in a theraputic residential unit. Basically, I cried when Cathy cried.
Poor Jodie was such a little character bless her heart. She was very anxious, aggressive and angry at first. But the more the story moves on, and the longer she lives with Cathy and her family, the more she becomes used to them, and the more she feels safe around them. Jodie had 2 alter egos, Amy and Reg. Amy was a baby, Reg was an extremely angry man. Cathy describes meeting these alter egos, being kicked and spat at by Reg, and having to comfort Amy when she wet herself. And the hallucinations Jodie has, I can't even begin to imagine what this poor girl went through.
Cathy and her family helped Jodie so much, Cathys own children helping out as much as they could, even when they were kicked themselves by Jodie. It was nice to be able to read at the end, that Cathy and her family still have contact with Jodie, and to hear although she is still at the unit, she is doing better. And it was also great to hear that her father was jailed for the awful awful thigns he done.
After reading jsut this one book from Cathy Glass, I can imagine exactly what a kind woman she is to take on all of these unfortunate children and help them. An extremely kind thing for someone to do.
I am looking forward to reading more of her stories, and looking very forward to chatting with her :)
Well, one of my good friends took it upon herself to ask Cathy Glass if she would like to guest on my blog sometime. I got an email from her and she said she'd love to! I was very shocked but very happy she has agreed.
So, I don't want her turning up on my blog to realise I haven't read any of her books before :/ I know, naughty me huh. So in light of this, I have decided to have a Glass-A-Thon! I have just finished one of her books, and will be starting another soon. I'm going to try to get through as many of her books as I can, and then will ask her to come along and join me here for a chat.
So wish me luck!
Have you read any of Cathy Glass' books?

Dan's drab life is a world away from his secret life as Danielle, the burlesque star of Tomasz's transvestite nightclub, Trans-Action.
Having found 'her' inner T girl as a student, Danielle has discovered the power of her femininity and her talent to entice and excite—but she realizes that Dan's life is losing the passion it once had.
As Danielle's relationship with Tomasz takes her deeper into both her lover and his world, encountering passions neither thought they dare explore, demure Francine is too often left to her own devices and desires. Her only release is in the fantasies inspired by the customers who pass through her life and her patisserie.
Does she want a man in her life or a woman? Or both...
Seeing her man exploring her wardrobe she decides to embrace the power of her own sexuality. Then a sizzling encounter with Tomasz unlocks the vixen in her and sets their two worlds on a collision course.
Can Dan bring Dan's world and Danielle's together—especially when he discovers Danielle's secret lover secretly loving Francine?
Or will Tomasz come between them both?
I was so chuffed when Faberge's debut novel came out a couple of weeks ago, and I was dying to get my hands on a copy! So off I ran to Amazon to purchase a copy for my kindle! :)
This is the first trans-gender novel I have read, and at first I wasn't sure what to expect. But I actually really liked it!
There was a lot, and I mean a lot, of sex in the story, but there was still a story behind it all. The sex was good though ;) M/F, M/TG, M/TG/F scenes
Danielle, Tomaz, Francine and Dan (well, Dan is Danielle, but when you read it you understand why they are 2 different characters totally). I liked them all, and hope the way it ended is the way it's going to last!
The description in hte book was great, I could really see the club in my mind, and could definately feel how sexy and feminine Franci and Danni felt in their stockings and lingerie.
Please, if you haven't already, get your hands on a copy here:

Shibari Master Ryan is intrigued by Ava, so when his cousin asks a favor, he is only too happy to help Ava out of the rut she says she is in.
Will her past allow her to enjoy his bondage, or will true submission prove a step too much?
Fantastic new book by Raven!
This is the story of Ava who really needs...well... a good seeing to! With a little help from her frien, she is pushed towards Ryan, the dance teacher. The dancing seems a good idea, so she agrees to come back, although this time he's said she has to come knickerless! Knickeless with a dress! Oh my!!
These 2 get up to some great stuff, and the connection between the 2 characters is great. I really liked Ryan a lot.
If you want to find out whether Ava allows Ryan to dominate her, you will have to buy the book! No spoilers from me!
Fab book, and can't wait for the second one 'Dance to a Different Beat', which a little birdie tells me is out in May! :D
Mr. Satisfaction Guaranteed, the card read—what a pretentious name for an escort.
Still, cancer survivor Natasha has to do something to reclaim her sexuality after her reconstructive surgery, and he comes highly recommended—by her mother no less.
When she meets the experienced Dom, he makes every submissive bone in her body sing and wish for things that can never be. Or can they? Fantasy fulfillment is all well and good, but she is just another client.
As they test all of her boundaries, will their one night heal her, or break her?
Be Warned: BDSM, m/m sex, mmf play, voyeurism, spanking
I coulnd't wait to read this! I loved the firt Mr SG so I knew I'd like this one too :)
This one is Natashas story, she is a cancer surviver who is feeling rather down about her appearance etc. Mr SG soon sorts that out! As a gift from her mother, Natasha meets Mr SG and has a very good time.
The scenes were fantastic as always, the M/M scene was a treat too! Quite a few parts I really enjoyed actually. The characters were lovely. Natasha and Mr SG were very good together.
With giggles, tears,and a lot of damn good sex, this book is certainly a one to grab! Hopefully this is not the last we'll hear from the sexy mr SG!
Well done Doris!

While battling for their lives, these individuals come up against natural disasters of every kind. Go on a thrill ride with Peyton, a teenaged babysitter who suddenly finds herself protecting her charge amidst devastating tornadoes.

There’s even the tale of an entire nation sinking to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, taking along its inhabitants and possibly the American news crew sent to broadcast the events. Will humanity be able to persevere as it always has? Or will they slip silently into the night, returning earth to its original owner, Mother Nature?
I recieved a copy of this book from Melissa in exchange for a review on my blog! I was very happy to read it! My apologies to her for not reading it sooner!
I actually enjoyed this story. At first, I wasn't sure how easy it would be to follow as there are quite a few characters.
The story is broken down into different parts, each with a title of the character and their wherabouts. This does make reading the story easier to follow. Each character is in a different part of the world, and many different natural disasters are occuring. You follow each character as they try to survive, some may survive, some may not, but to find that out you will have to read the book!
No spoilers from me, but I will say that there was one part which really tugged at my heart strings and brought a few tears to my eyes. I liked all of the characters, some more than others.
It was a good story, the first apocolypse story I've read, and I would read more!

Where is my reading mojo gone?!
I can not get into a book at the moment, doesn't matter what book I try to read. I think it's because I've been full of cold and flu for the last week, and the headaches are not helping either. I just can't seem to concentrate on anything.
Hopefully it will bugger off soon and I'll be back to reading constantly lol!
I've been asked to review a book by an author so hopefully I can get on with it shortly.
Fingers crossed :)

#sexysnippets time again folks!
I'm back with another sexy seven from my WIP When Nature Calls.
His rock hard cock was pressing against her ass, nudging it's way towards her hole.
She felt his nails run down her spine, stopping above the crack of her ass. Sharp and seductive, they ran up and down, causing goosebumps all over her body. How she wanted those nails to run over her cunt, which was ready and waiting, dripping juices at every little touch. He made a low, vibrating growl. She turned to look at him for the first time, properly.. and he was gone.
Where had he gone?
Thanks for reading folks! And thanks for all the amazing comments on last weeks #snexysnippets! They made my day! :)

Not my usual post but I had to share this.
A well known lady from a parenting forum I'm on sadly lost her 7 month old son Maison on Thursday. He pulled himself up in his cot and managed to grab some nappy sacks to play with. He fell asleep with one on his face :(
His mother wants to warn people of the dangers of keeping things like this in your childs reach and has asked everyone to share this.
Thoughts and love go out to his family at this very sad time
I read this over the last 2 days, just a short book though. It came up on one of my GoodRead friends lists so thought I'd give it a go.
Firstly, the book ends rather abruptly, and you have to buy the second book to find out what happens. A lot of people have left reviews on it saying they think this is a very nasty, kiniving trick by the author. Me... I think it's rather clever! Any author wants people to buy their books,a nd if someone likes them they will. So any one who has read Baby Talk book 1, and liked it, will go and buy book 2.
Anyway, on with the review. It was a good book, but not great. The whole story is about Neal, his wife Annie and their baby girl Natasha. Neal never wanted the baby, and that is made clear numerous times throughout the book. But, he and Annie married anyway and had their daughter. At 5 months old, Natasha speaks to Neal, things start to happen, and Neal starts to think Natasha is out to get him.
A bit freaky I suppose, but I didn't get the horror of the story really. I did want to finish it to see what happened though, so I guess the author did capture me! I will be buying book 2 at some point and finishing off the story.
“Ice Duchess” Brielle is desperate for a solution to her inability to orgasm, so when word about a man with a magical cock reaches her ears, she decides that he just might be what she needs.
Will Vincent’s "Golden Cock" be enough for the "Ice Duchess", or will something else come to play along the way?
I thought this was a great naughty Fairy Tale ;) my daughter has recently started listening to an audio book of The Golden Goose, and every time I hear it I think of Elyzabeths naughty version!
Brielle was another nice character, and I'm glad she found what she was searching for!
The scenes were amazing, and the menage scene too was great!
This is one naughty Fairy Tale everyone should get stuck into :D

Saucy stories in the old library? It doesn't seem likely, but when Karen is sent home with an odd looking reading device, magic happens at the touch of her fingers. Is the drop dead gorgeous man she encounters real or just a flight of her imagination?
Caught in a weekend of sexual delight, will she lose her heart, as well as her inhibitions? And is there any future for the two of them?
So after throwing him into a chair, and pointing a bright light in his face, he finally gave in and agreed to answer some questions! So I turned off the bright light, and made him a cup of coffee instead, as I was totally bluffing the interrogation thing anyway! I'm a lover not a fighter :)
Comfortable now Brook? Good! Here we go!

One Christmas, four friends – but will they still be together by New Year?
Divorce wasn’t part of the plan for Holly, but then again nor was spending the festive period with two sexy men and Santa’s little helper! With a disastrous marriage behind her, and three good friends who are willing to share, moving on could be fun – if only she can accept that sometimes her heart is wiser than her head.
Dane doesn’t do commitment, which suits Holly just fine. But when things heat up between the four friends, he’s forced to face up to his past. Will realising he’s good enough mean he no longer wants to share…?
Laid back Charlie knows that if his best friend becomes his lover he could end up losing big time. But can he resist? And when the girl he once loved comes back, who will he decide to spend the New Year with?
…And Sophie just wants to have fun. She’s got the answers to everyone's problems, except her own …. is she the one who needs good friends most of all?
Will a caring, sharing, lust and love filled Christmas lead to the happy ever after they all desire?
WARNING - Christmas may never seem the same again!
I recieved this book from Zara in exchange for a review. I was more than happy to oblige :)
I really enjoyed this story. The characters were very likable, especially Dane! I pictured him so clearly, and think I may have a little thing for him! Holly was a lovely, sweet girl...well...sometimes! Sophie, at first felt a bit pushy. She wanted to 'help' everyone with everything... in other words meddle lol! But once you've read the whole thing, and find out about her childhood, you feel so sorry for her, and I would love to read more of her story. Charlie, well I could see myself getting to like him.. a lot!
The menage a trios were great, MFF, MMF, MMF. I was looking forward to seeing Holly taken by both guys at the same time, maybe in the next book? The scenes were very hot and sexy, there was a lot going on but it never spoiled the story at all.
All in all a great little read. The first of Zaras I have read, and am now totally looking forward to book number 2 (which a little birdie tells me is out at the end of March!).
Zara Stoneley has been writing stories for as long as she’s been reading them. She submitted her first novel, a thriller, to a UK publisher when she was twelve years old.

Her erotic work has been published by Xcite Books and Breathless Press. She also writes contemporary romance under the name Susie Medwell, and her latest romance is due to be published by Lyrical Press 6th May 2013.
Zara loves her family, sunshine, wine, good food, caffeine, cats, music, writing and reading - but not necessarily in that order!

I don't have a blurb or cover or anything yet so you'll have to make do with some words :)
Here's my seven sentences from my WIP 'When Nature Calls'. I hope you enjoy!!
The Next thing she knew she was tied to a bed, legs and arms spread as wide as they would go.
'How on earth did I get here?', she asked.
' Don't worry sweetness, I'm going to take care of you, in every way you can think of', a strong voice replied.
She suddenly felt very aware that she was totally on display. For the next few minutes all that Susan could see were flashes: flesh,a naked buttock here, a bulging cock there, heaving breasts, and sweaty skin. Feelings of soft touches, sharp stings, scraping of sharp nails, deep deep waves of pure ecstasy.
Then she woke up.
