Divine Desire by Audrey Carlan #BookReview


Hello, Y'all!! If you have followed my blog for any length of time, or follow my Facebook page, you have probably figured out that I love to read. Reading, coffee, and Gigi- my three greatest loves. One of the things I want to do, whenever the opportunity presents itself, is to tell you guys about books I have read. You may remember me telling you about Sacred Serenity by Audrey Carlan, back in September. If you don't, you can read about it here.

Well, I just recently read the follow-up to Sacred Serenity, and I am here to tell you about it. Much like Sacred Serenity, I absolutely loved Divine Desire. Divine Desire is the third book in the Lotus House Series, by Audrey Carlan. I highly recommend you read all three, but you should know, I feel you can absolutely read this book, without reading the previous two, and still understand and enjoy it. 

Audrey is a fabulous writer, and an amazing storyteller. In this book, she gives you the complete story, while giving you glimpses at the past characters we fell in love with, and setting us up for future installments. I love that we get glimpses at the characters from the previous books, all while exploring the current characters journey, and yet getting the set up for the next story. This book will leave you fully satisfied, yet ready for what is next. 

You will fall in love with Mila and Atlas. Their journey will captivate and entertain you, until the very end. You will be left satisfied with how their story developed and ended. Audrey does a fantastic job weaving together yoga, romance, passion, and life. She tells a story that will make you feel a full gamut of emotions, from sadness and suspense to passion and pleasure. It is definitely a hot, sexy romance, but it isn't too hot. There is an actual storyline. She develops the characters well, and the storyline is fabulous. I love how Audrey manages to give us the happy endings we want, with a healthy dose of reality and passion mixed in.

You can definitely read this book on its own, but as stated, I highly recommend you read the entire series. You won't regret it. Audrey is a masterful storyteller, and her books will leave you satisfied. A definite added bonus, is the glimpses she gives us to the previous characters, in each new book. She doesn't leave us completely void of no updates. With each new book of Audrey's I read, the couple she tells me about, becomes my favorite. Divine Desire is no different. I am now firmly #TeamMilaAndAtlas, and after reading it, you will be too!!

Another little note for you... When you read these books, do not be shocked if you have a sudden, overwhelming desire to do Yoga!! With each book, my desire to do Yoga grows. After reading Divine Desire, I am now actually looking into finding a class I can feel comfortable in. I think it was probably inevitable.  

Please, once you read it, come back and let me know what you thought of it!! I would love to know how you feel about it!!

Happy Last Day of 2016!! I hope your 2017 is joyous, prosperous, and full of great books!!

Synopsis
When veteran yoga instructor Mila Mercado was asked to attend a new class and report back to the studio, she had no idea that the over-confident, ruggedly sexy newbie Atlas Powers was going to teach more than just a very controversial and erotic form of yoga. 
New instructor Atlas Powers has two passions in life: his music career and steamy by-the-book Mila Mercado. He teaches yoga by day and works at his passion by night until the fiery woman walks into his class and gives the term desire a whole new dimension. 
In this wicked hot tale of love and lust, two struggling artists are trying to make their dreams come true. Only one thing gets in the way… until they stop fighting long enough to burn up the sheets and the yoga studio with a divine desire neither of them can avoid.

  1. Sounds like she's done it again. Although I like to read a series in order, I do appreciate when each book can stand on its own.

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.



1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.

Mother Earth #UseYourWords

Welcome to July's Use Your Words post! This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.


My words are: bat ~ environment ~ foreshadow ~ lonesome ~ oddly They were submitted by: http://theblogging911.com/blog
I am typing this on my new Chromebook. I got it dirt cheap on Amazon Prime Day. I am not trying to brag, but I am a fast typist, and make very few typos. However, In just these last few lines, I have made about a million typos. Change may be nice, but sometimes it takes a bit to get used to. Oy. So, please bear with me. Oddly, despite not liking change and fighting it as much as possible, I am actually excited about this change. Ho…
