My newest adventure in the book world

Hello and welcome!

As most of you know I am not  a bookworm, but a huge book dragon, and I have the cup to prove it too. 😀 thanks Becca for the decal! Good conversation starter…

My latest adventure in the book world took me to London’s Ignite Your Soul Author Event and I had a blast. London, Ontario that is. When I posted on FB that I am going to London, everybody was so excited, until I told them it was not the one across the pond but 2-hour drive away, they called me a tease, not sure why 😛

Check out the pictures posted on their website. This was their 4th year and my 2nd and every year they sponsor a local charity. This year it was the National Service Dogs who received the proceeds from the raffle and silent auction.

I had the opportunity to add my contribution to it by adding various swag to the registration bags and also bringing three baskets with books and swag I had on hand from 3 generous authors: M. A. Abraham, Sharon Hamilton and Renea Mason and added my own little surprises to them. THANK YOU again ladies.

I updated my signing bag adding my own logo, what do you think?

… also made some fans to give out with one of my faves memes…

Of course I went over my budget, it is the norm for me and my friends laugh when I tell them that I have a budget for books and ask why I even bother 😛 Here is my hoard from this signing. Carey Decevito‘s hunks are finally in my possession, I’ve been eyeing them since the Ottawa signing YUM

I also got a few freebies which are always welcome, some will go on my signed treasures shelf and some will make their way into giveaways or care packages that I mail to friends. Thank you Kayleigh Malcolm for always looking out for me. Thanks go to Freya Barker who donated “Menu for Romance” & “Shaded with Love” for the giveaway on this post.

… and lots and lots of swag, fun stuff, sweet goodies and a few prezzies that were received along with book purchase.

Amy Ruttan‘s duckies are so cute… R.K. Gleason‘s chocolate pops are a favourite and the red tentacle finger thingy almost disappeared in my son’s room, otherwise known as the black hole LOL ….  Emerald O’Brien‘s cup was a welcome gift and I know the perfect recipient for it too… the mini rubber man is a wine glass ornament and won it at Shannyn Leah‘s ‘poke a cup’ contest.

I bought myself a t-shirt from Marianne Maguire because the one she gave me years ago is getting really tattered from so much use, the words on them crack me up…

She is a riot and the time spent with her at the signing and the hours between the signing and the dinner afterward were well spent. We talked, laughed and got the inside scoop from her Otherworld, a world I happily immerse myself whenever I have the chance.

I also got myself a pair of fingerless gloves from Erin Cristofoli, impulse purchase for sure since I could make them myself. She has a page for her creations on FB, the Butterfly Kissed Crochet. Check it out, some really neat things are available for purchase.

I got to meet some new authors, sweet AW Clarke and his fire-cracker wife, they were also dinner companions, lots of laughter.

C.J. Lazar is another new author and I was so embarrassed because I was addressing his sister sitting at his side until she mentioned that the author is him *facepalm* He was gracious about it and laughed it off, but I think my face was all kinds of red at the time.

Another dinner companion was Elle Klass with her boyfriend, they came all the way from Florida. They were very entertaining. If you are into horror check out her books, they sound good and if you contact her, ask her about the audiobooks, tell her I sent you or let me know and I can get you connected 😉

Kayleigh Malcolm and her hubby were sitting at the table too and they were so entertaining as usual, loved seeing them again. She gives the best hugs.

Kendra Mei Chailyn is another one of my fave authors, a fun lady that is full of sunshine and smiles, she was joined by her sweet niece who gave me a naughty bag with all kinds of goodies… and no I will not show you what was in it, use your imagination… NAUGTHY imagination 😉 We danced our tushes of after the dinner and shared some laughs.

Do you know who is another awesome hugger? Zoe York! She is bubbly and energetic, you can’t help but like her. Her books are yummy, especially her naughty alter ego, Ainsley Booth. She was there too and bugged her about the book I am waiting for in paperback LOL

I tried to chat with everybody, buy at least one book from every attending author, paperback or ebooks on a stick. All in all it was a great event, kudos to authors
Crystal St. Clair & Erin Cristofoli and their awesome team of volunteers, looking forward to next year.

Now lets get to the best part. Sexy Mr. Random will pick a winner on Monday, October 16, 2017, from the comments to receive this bag, including a bracelet made by yours truly among books and swag. Tell me, if you had to pick one, what is your fave swag.

GOOD LUCK and until next time read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!

My Chat with Xavier, Marco and Sebastian *sigh*

Hello and welcome!

Today’s chat is so exciting I can barely contain myself.

I give you not one, not two, but three book boyfriends that I met a little over a year ago while listening to the first audiobook in the series. It was instant love that grew as I listened to all the books after. Even though all three are on my book boyfriend list, and love them each for different reasons, Marco is my fave, he is such an irreverent flirt, but shhhh don’t tell on me …  I am waiting at their door to be let in … here they come 😉

Welcome ! Welcome !

Marco… Marco… should I be surprised? Oooooh nice ass … Cheeky LOL

What is your full name?
Xavier Vincent
Marco Bartolli
Sebastian Corriveau

Do you have a nickname?
X: Well, Elaine calls me “doctor” but that usually only when she’s pissed.
M: Uh, nickname? Not so much, but you can call me “lover.”
S: Master, will do just fine.

What is one word best describes you?
X: I’d have to say devoted.
M: Is great ass one word or two?
S: Confident.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
X: Since I just got back from the office, I’m in my suit with my tie undone waiting for Elaine to get home.
M: Wearing? Was I supposed to be wearing something?
Not on my account, I kinda like the view I grin and he laughs
S: I’m relaxed, in my jeans and t-shirt, waiting for Elaine to get home. We have a special treat for her.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
X: I think since it’s Elaine telling the story, we really can’t argue with how she sees us. But it’s hard to looking in the mirror regardless. So yes, I think she portrayed me accurately–the good, the bad and the ugly.
M: She tried, but there aren’t words to describe just how great my ass is.
S: For the most part, but since she only told the story from Elaine’s perspective, I would have loved for her to tell the story from mine, so that Elaine would know just how much she means to me.

What makes you laugh out loud?
X: Marco
M: Xavier
S: Marco
I agree, Marco is quite funny, made me burst out laughing quite a few times.

What is your favourite dessert?
X: Honey-coated Elaine
M: Chocolate-covered Elaine
S: Elaine’s Nutella-covered tits
Oh I remember that from when you returned from Paris…. I am looking around for something to fan myself with… is it hot in here?

What is your favourite drink?
X: Vodka
M: Cognac
S: Scotch

What is your greatest fear?
X: Losing Elaine
M: Losing each other
S: That stupid fucking society

What is your favourite colour?
X: Red
M: Blue
S: Blue

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
X: I used to sleep in boxers, but ever since Elaine came into our lives I sleep in the nude.
M: Me too.
S: Same here.

What is the perfect romantic date?
X: The four of us spending the night at home in bed.
M: The four of us breaking some rules at the Louvre.
S: Tying Elaine up and teasing her until she begs.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
X: Not very.
M: Extremely. My feet especially.
S: I’m not, but Marco is.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
X: Elaine, because it reminds me of her.
M: Chocolate pound cake
S: I’m going to have to say the way Elaine smells after we’ve each claimed her. That scent is quintessentially us.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
X: They usually don’t catch my attention. That’s what made Elaine so special.
M: Whether or not she smile. Miserable people make me sad.
S: Tits.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
X: No, I have three special people.
M: Me too.
S: Me too.

What is one word best describes her?
X: Loving
M: Strong
S: Confident

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
X: Our story is a completed trilogy. I believe Renea may write a spin off in the future, but for now we’re enjoying our life with each other.
I hope she does, I want more of your story.

Xavier, Marco and Sebastian: Thank you so much for having us on your blog, Eniko!
Thank YOU and hugs to Elaine!
DAYUM they are so hawt… Lucky Elaine!

Well what do you think? I hope you enjoyed the chat.

The three hunks hail from The Good Doctor trilogy and a short by Renea Mason. My love affair started last year in March when I visited Mary Menage‘s blog who was hosting the 2016 MENAGE SPRING TOUR and I won the first book in audio format and the rest is history. They are narrated by the award winning duo, Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard. You have to listen to them A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! voices, the passion they add and the chemistry is incredible.

My reviews:
book 1, “Curing Doctor Vincent”, it won quite a few awards and after listening to it I agree.

“WOW WOW WOW”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
If I could give a few more stars for the performance, I would. My first duo narration and OMG they delivered. Ms. Deward and Mr. Levine’s voices are amazing, the various accents, the emotions, the passion with which they delivered the story is spectacular, very realistic. I listened to some parts more than once.
This was my first book by Renea Mason and I have to say, I am hooked. Great story, kept me on my toes, I like that I can’t predict what comes next and that it evoked an wide array of emotions. I already purchased the next one in the series 😀

book 2, “Surviving Doctor Vincent”

“Even better”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
I thought the first book in the series was really good, and it is, but this 2nd book is off the charts. As I listened to the story unfold I was amazed how it evolved and more secrets were revealed especially at the end WOW what a twist. Poor Elaine! Will she survive another revelation? I can’t wait to find out, and hopefully it will be in the next book.
The relationship between her and Xavier is combustive, adding Sebastian and Marco is even more so. All 3 add to the mix and she is one lucky woman. Fanned my face at the hot scenes. Again the duo narrating this book made this experience one that will stay with me for a while. The accents, the emotions, the powerful delivery is just amazing. It felt like I was there and experienced all the emotions, the pain, the laughter the characters felt and saw what they saw. Thank you!

book 3, “Loving Doctor Vincent”

“Intense”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
I am sorry to see the journey end, I rather enjoyed tagging along Elaine and her men. This last book was quite intense with suspense mixed with hot erotic scenes , twists and truths revealed.
The narrators are amazing, so much passion, made the story almost real. Addictive for sure.

short story, “Tasting Paris”

“Delicious”
Overall 5 stars – Performance 5 stars – Story 5 stars
An hour of delicious and hot, this story is perfect for a quickie listen and get a fix of the sexy voices of this duo recounting how X, Marco, Sebastian rock Elaine’s world. Fan required 😉
