Welcome to Wicked Girl’s GNO! My book boyfriend for the week….hmmm…tough one. I love the nerdy Matt from Flat Out Matt, George from By A Thread by RL Griffin was hot too, but I have to say, Brady, from the soon to be released (April 29th) Because of You by TE Sivec was the winner. The book isn’t out yet, but you can meet Brady in A Beautiful Lie by TE Sivec, where is is a supporting character. Yum.
On to the subject of the night…has reading books affected your relationships? Have you realized you want more and your guy isn’t cutting it? Is your reading taking away from family time? Or has reading woken up your sex drive?
It has mine, a lot. After 22 years of marriage, our sex life is better than ever. It’s amazing how much reading helps me get in the mood. I’m not a fan of porn, but a good book can do it for me. Especially books like Cherise Sinclair’s Masters of the Shadowlands (on sale) or her Mountain Masters or Olivia Cunning’s Sinners on Tour (also on sale). My best friend says The Brie Submissive Series and After Graduation Series by Red Phoenix is what helps their bedroom activities (plus Ambien, which makes her lose her inhibitions, but she forgets it in the morning). The books that have really done it for me are books that have both a great story AND great sex. See my list here.
As long as my husband is getting it more, he doesn’t care how it happens and has no problem letting me read during foreplay. I also have taken screen shots of stuff I like and texted it to him, making us much more creative.
But it works the other way too. If I’m reading an emotional non-sexy book. He’s not getting any that night.
I have friends whose husbands’ resent their reading, and some who realized their husbands suck in bed and want more. Remember ladies, these are books. Real life isn’t always going to measure up.
So, grab a drink and talk to me! How has reading affected your marriage? What books are your go-to reads when you need a little “get in the mood” read?
