Bring on the popcorn~Let’s watch TV! #MFRWauthor #bingewatching

 

 

Welcome to  #MFRWauthor 52-Week Blog Challenge. This is week 3, and our prompt is TV shows I binge on. I am not a big TV watcher. I would rather have a book in my hands or a headset on with my newest audible.

In the evenings My hubby and I set aside some time to watch tv together whether it be a movie or a show. This fall we were watching  Designated Survivor.  Kieffer Sutherland still has it! It was pretty good for an action show.

He likes documentaries so Christmas we binged on The Search for Jesus.  New Years he binged on Conspiracy Files on the BBC.

I did marathon watch  Pretty Little Liars with my granddaughter this summer, and I would be lying if I said I didn’t look for her to come over so we could get to the next issue ( I’m not allowed to mess up the schedule, so I have to wait for her)

My Hubby and I found a good series that had one season called Glitch and we binged that. I t is supposed to come back later this year.  As you can see, he is the TV controller in our family I just watch or crochet while he does.

I would like to get in on the hype of Sherlock and Torchwood before its taken off Net Flix. My Granddaughter says I need to watch One Tree Hill.

My trouble with binge watching is I don’t like to sit that long watching TV so one or two episodes at a time are about all I can do.

My binge watching is basically the Food Channel or Cooking Channel or if I can find a missed Top Chef, Masterchef or Project Runway.

 

What are your favorite shows? Anything you binge watch?

Caging the Time-sucker

I have this little creäture in y house. I know it’s here even though I can’t see it. Yes, I have an invisible Time-sucker on the loose. I make great plans but this little devil likes to add things or hide things making me hunt them.

I have dedicated this month to clean up the mess my Time-sucker made last year. I need to find him and cage him, but I bet he has siblings to go behind him and continue to stick shiny things in my face or on my Facebook wall, or in my email.

It is almost the end of January and I have made no headway so far in eliminating this mess or finding the nasty little creäture. I do have a list to work through. Some of it as it come such as Emails.  Through Insta-freebie I have a gazillion Newsletters. No disrespect to those authors but if I am not going to keep reading them or following them or possibly buying their book I don’t need to keep those emails coming. Lesson learned. Only take the Insta-freebies I am truly interested. Not just a freebie. I also have a habit of signing up for lots of free eBooks and recipes or crafts. I am cutting those back too.  Each day I do this when emails show up I decide to stay or go.

*Song pops in head*

 

I have a list for Goodreads as well. I have already cut back on the groups there. Most of them didn’t have any forums or anything current.  I still need to cut a few more. I also need to go through my book list and check my currently reading and to read pile. This is at the end of my list, though.

On Facebook, I need to work through Groups, pages, and friends. I have started on each. I cut my groups way back and still need to cut a few more.

These are my three major problem areas. I think linked in twitter and Google plus could use some going through too.  Maybe later in the year.

Another issue I have before making my schedule is a friend suggested combining the Bites Trilogy into one long book instead of three short ones. I haven’t decided but that will mean a revision on my schedule. Speaking of which I need to make one…February is fast approaching.

I do have my blogging sorted. I will be doing a Tuesday Teaser, a Blog hop post on Friday, A week In Review on Saturday and a cute animal or babies post on Monday.  I may add in personal post now and again like today.

Speaking of all this work, I better get back to it.

Do you make lists and schedules? Does the Time-sucker visit you too?

Any tips are appreciated!

Teaser Tuesday

Hi Ya’ll! It’s teaser Tuesday time! I am still working on organizing and sorting to get ready for my goals for the year. I will post a little snippet from my NaNo story  Simon Plus Two. This is a MMM story so if hot man sex isn’t your thing you may not want to read further. If you are wanting to dip your toe in the waters of MM love maybe give it a go. I am not extremely explicit.

I have introduced my three guys over the past few weeks if you missed scroll through the Teaser Tuesday selections on the sidebar and check it out.

Last week Simon decided to go all the way with Max. Max dropped the bombshell that in the past he always needed two men. one passive one aggressive.  But with Simon so far he was sated. How long will that last? Will Max or Simon be the one that needs more?

Topher is now getting a bomb dropped on him just when he is settled in and happy with Guns in New Orléans.

Topher

We settled quickly into an easy routine. I would clean the house, do laundry, shop for groceries, then in the afternoon I went down to the shop and sketched. Rose had taught me the basic piercing techniques. I could pierce ears, noses, belly buttons, lips, and eyebrows. The more complicated and painful ones like the cock, clit, tongue and nipples the other two still did. Guns had started working on a tattoo on one of my arms, it joined some of my designs and his. Sometimes at night we would go to a pub, listen to some jazz or blues, tour a little or go home to curl up together. I liked our lazy nights at home. The day after I moved in I let Guns fuck me. It was a more like making love. He was caring and gentle.
June is coming to an end and it’s hotter here than it was at home. I stayed home this afternoon and made dinner.
“Hey babe.” Guns pulled me into his arms in a warm greeting. I like it better when he calls me Cher. At least that sounds more exotic than babe.
“What are you cooking? I could smell it all the way down in the shop.”
“I hope its Shrimp Etouffe and rice. The roux thing was intimidating.”
“Well, it smells great.” His stomach let out a big rumble.
I hope he remembers this is what he had on our first date. A full month ago.
We sit down to eat. I dish us both up big bowls. I made him some cornbread too.
I should have told you this morning to not cook. I wanted to take you out to celebrate our first month together.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to ruin your surprise.”
That’s ok. I like yours better. He takes out a small box and pushes it across the table.
There is a beautiful black leather bracelet with my name and the name Deacon on the front. My brows knit.
My given name. I wasn’t sure if you’d like that so here. There was an same one that said Guns a Blazin.
“I love them. That’s a better idea than I had.”
I go to the bedroom and bring back a box. He opens it to a black sleeveless tee. A very tight one. I have a thing about this man in a tee stretched tight across his muscular chest, his big bulging muscles bare.
We hurriedly finish dinner, putting the dishes in the sink for letter and dive into the bedroom to make love.
After our long heated lovemaking, we collapse together in an exhausted heap.
“Holy shit that was good.” Guns rolls to the side tossing one long, heavy arm over my chest.
I can barely speak. “Yeah it was.”
After a few minutes to catch our breath Guns gets up and goes to the bathroom. I hear water running and wonder should I follow him. Seconds later Guns returns with a warm cloth and a towel. He wipes off my chest and cock.
“Turn over baby.”
I do as he says. He gently cleans my sore ass. I’ll be walking funny for days.
Guns comes back to bed. “Goodnight babe.”
I’m awakened to Mommas Don’t let Your Babies Grow up To Be Cowboys. Why in the world is Caleb Calling this late at night. I glance at the clock and see it’s morning. Still too early to deal with Caleb. If he is calling me this early it can’t be good. I will deal with him later after coffee and breakfast.
“That your phone?”
“Yeah, it’s Caleb. I’ll call back later.”
“Good. I need you before I go to work.”
He rolls on top of me and leans in for a kiss. I put my hands against his chest.
“Wait up. I need to brush my teeth.”
“Nah.It’s all good.” He takes my mouth in a deep kiss.
“MMMM. So good.” He rocks against me. My hard cock trapped between us.
My phone blares that damn cowboy song again.
I lean up. Guns presses me back down. “Call him back later and I can talk to him and give him the information he needs.”
“Yeah I’m in no mood to deal with him right now. I need coffee. Lots of it. And food.”
“What about me? Don’t you need me Cher?” His voice was husky with desire.
“I want you yes. I don’t think I’m ready for you inside me again so soon.”
“I know you must be sore. There are other ways.”
He slides his hand over his already dripping cock then takes mine in the same hand. He slides it up and down taking some of my moisture with his.”Wrap your hand over mine.”
We began a slow steady rhythm as he deeply kisses me again. I find myself trying to speed up.
“Slow down baby we will get there. I want to savor this”
Right as I‘m about to explode my damn phone chimes.
“Tonight turn the damn thing off when we go to bed.”
“UH HUH. OH. Faster. YES! ALMOST!” CHIME! CHIME! “Fuck!”
Guns keeps a steady hold on us. He grunts and warmth spreads over my chest. I follow immediately. We take a shower together, get dressed and head to the kitchen for coffee.
“What would you like for breakfast. I have eggs and stuff for omelets.”
“Do you have stuff for pancakes?”
“I don’t have Syrup, I do have honey, powdered sugar, Hazelnut spread or nut butters.”
“OOh any cinnamon or chocolate chips?
“No chips. I do have cinnamon”
“Awesome. I can make French toast with a cinnamon glaze.”
“I don’t know how you are so skinny with all the carbs and sugar you eat.”
“ You can work it off me,” I smirk.
My phone chimes from the bedroom. “I guess I better go see what his texts say.and tell him I’ll call after we eat.”
Go ahead. I will start breakfast. I can make a good French toast and I’ll cook some sausage to go with it.”
I hope it’s not that red, greasy sausage he likes so much and is a regular breakfast sausage. I’ll get him to help make a shopping list and I can go to the grocery store when he goes to work. Maybe I’ll surprise him with a nice dinner.
I pick up my phone. My heart drops. 4 messages from Caleb. All short. Call me now. It’s urgent. I hope everything is alright. I hit his name on speed dial. “Whats up Caleb?”
“It’s about time. Look. I Know you are settling in there. I hate to do this. She’s not leaving me with a choice.”
“Caleb, would you calm down and explain what you’re talking about?”
“Your mom and I had another disagreement.”
“Seems like lately that is all you do.”
“It’s been terrible since the players arrived in May. She is a different person. Anyways, last night she gave me an ultimatum.”
“What kind of ultimatum. I’m not sure how I can help. She won’t listen to me.”
“She told me to not send you another dime. She also said for me to get you back home pronto.”
My throat tightens and heart thuds. She can’t do this to me.
“No. I can’t leave right now.” I can hear the panic in my voice.
“Christopher you have to. If you don’t I’ll lose her forever.”
“She’s bluffing.”
“No. Not this time. She told me if you weren’t home by July 1 for me to get my horse, tack and anything else I had over there and lose her number.”
I sit there stunned.
“Is everything ok?” Gun’s wraps his arms around me.
All I can do is shake my head.
“You want me to give up my new life, come home so you what? She already chose the young guy. You told me the other day.”
“I can win her back. I just have to buy some time. I have a new angle to get the boy gone.”
“You’re not going to hire a hit man are you.”
“No. Not exactly. I have a guy that’s gonna leak some information to a relative of his. That’s all.”
I don’t like the sound of Caleb’s voice. I think he has totally lost it. I’m beginning to get scared for mom. Caleb isn’t acting like himself.
“I can get a job here. I don’t need your money.”
“What will you do until you get a job?”
“I’m fine. I have a place to stay and food until I do.” I feel Gun’s nodding against my shoulder.
“So you’re going to turn your back on me after all I have done for you. All the money I have sent. All the covering with your mom.” Caleb’s voice booms over the phone.
I slump into Gun’s arms. Caleb is right. I wouldn’t have gotten off the farm without him. He has been good to me. Can I turn my back on him even though he sounds crazy right now?
“Topher please come home.”
“It will only be a couple of weeks max. Talk to you mom. Work things out. Explain to her you have a new life. I’m sure she will support you and let you go back.”
I look at my reflexion in the mirror. One look at the new me she will flip.
“Son. I’m desperate here.”
“Fine. I’ll come home. But I’m not staying.”
I hope if I leave that Guns will take me back.

Service with a Smirk by Ariel Tachna  Dreamspinner Press

200 pages contemporary

4 meows 2 purrs

I like this book on many levels. First of all The May.December (older man?Younger man) trope is one of my all time favorites.  I also love broken men and Pascal is so sad. I rooted for him to find love again. I liked that they did not rush into anything and that each man at one time or other tried to move the relationship on. I also liked that Mathias, even though he was small and twinkish was unyielding, probably the stronger of the two. And the kicker was the writer ladies that were friends of Pascals.  Not to forget I love picturesque settings, and this is in Canada with a very French feeling.

 Audio

PatchWork Paradise Indra Vaughn Craig  Beck Riptide Publishing Audible 

5 Meows 2 purrs

M/M Contemporary

Patchwork Paradise is such a sad but sweet story.  I cried so much, not all sad. There is twist after twist all the way to the end. It is definitely not predictable! I loved when Oliver changed Thomas baby first diaper. I loved Craig’s cooing voice when he did all the baby talk.

or the first sex scene with Thomas and Oliver. It was all really hot…then the baby cried. I loved it when Oliver told Thomas to go get the baby, he was going to get ice packs for his blue balls.

My Goodreads review   

Movie

We watched Deep Water Horizon this week.

4 Meows

It was Ok. There was a lot of action and seeing something based on reality was interesting. Mark Wahlberg starring in it didn’t hurt LOL

I hope you enjoyed my week in review. I hope you find some good books to read an audio or movie. If you had a favorite this week, you would like to share a post in comments. I am always looking for good entertainment! See ya Next week!
