Westin's Chase (Titan, #3)Title:  Westin's Chase
Series:  Titan, Book 3
Author:  Cristin Harber
Genre:  Romantic Suspense
Heat Level:  4 Flames

Jared Westin knows his reputation and likes it. He gets the job done. No emotion. No baggage. That’s why his elite ops company, The Titan Group, is better than the best. They complete projects classified as mission impossible.  And then, in walks a woman as tough as she is sexy. His counterpart in every way, should he choose to admit it.

Ousted undercover ATF agent Lily Chase only answers to “Sugar.” Jared is the only man who can see past her leather-and-lipstick demeanor, and that revelation is terrifying. She was fired for helping Titan on a questionable arrest she should’ve ignored, then partnered with Jared’s rival on an assignment in Afghanistan.  Distance and danger do nothing to change her feelings. When she’s left on the side of a mountain to die, an unexpected ally comes forward, and might open her heart.

Saving Sugar isn’t a normal rescue operation. It pits Titan against its rival, Jared against his nemesis. Chasing Sugar’s heart isn’t a simple task, either. She fights him, fights them, always ready to run. When she becomes a pawn in a game of collateral damage, Jared must risk his life to save her—the woman whose bravado and surprising sweetness has given him the one thing he never had. Love.

Hola Chickies!  Welcome to this week's Bench Talk Discussion.  Here's our question for this week?


How Much Description is Too Much for Sex Scenes?

Here's one of those topics that I for one (Nettie that is) have a lot to say!  Don't get me wrong, I love a good steamy scene with my fact, I stopped reading YA because I couldn't get any good steamy scenes.  However.....I am highly uncomfortable with the "P" word and the "C" word when describing the woman's body parts, but I have absolutely no problem with the description of male parts.  I know totally insane but.....what can I say? 
Title: Big Girls Do It Wetter
Series: Big Girls Do (Book 2)
Author: Jasinda Wilder
Genre: Erotica

Welcome to the second installment of the Big Girls Do series. Whew was Big Girls Do It Better good or what? You haven't read anything until you see the new obstacle that Anna has put herself in.

So we were left with Anna leaving Chase and him going to New York for a recording deal. This wild experience allowed Anna to start looking at herself differently. Not only had a hot becoming rock star banged her back out but he wanted her to go with him. In Big Girls Do It Wetter, we get to see what happens when Anna tries to return back to the real world.

Jeff has been in love with Anna from jump but never approached her for more than friendship.(Women are not the only one's afraid of rejection.) Well, since Anna had her eye opening escapade with Chase she is looking at Jeff with new eyes. After a night of Anna being in a bitchy mood, her and Jeff get drinks after their shift to talk. One drink, two drinks, three drinks more and Anna is drunk. LOL. Jeff being the great guy he is did not allow

Recap: The Real Housewives of Atlanta

OMFG! Did you chicks watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta last night? Simply put it was a Hot Mess. RHOA is so my guilty pleasure but they are all making fools of themselves.

Kandi and Todd:

These two look so cute together but I am starting to believe the rumors that Todd is an opportunist. This week, Kandi is looking for venues to host her musical. Surprisingly, Todd was able to go with her even though he dropped out the project. While Kandi is trying to handle business, Todd is taking calls from his other "job"...boy bye. Eventually, Todd states he's not feeling the other job and Kandi welcomed him back on board....I am giving them both the side eye.

This week our SINsual Sunday quote comes from a new author to us, Harper Sloan.  This is from her 1st book the the Corps Security Series....check it out!

He grasps my ankles and with slow tortured movements, runs his hands up my legs.  When he reaches my knees, he brings his hands underneath and throws them over his shoulders, kissing my left and then my right knee.  With a small smile, he turns to run soft kisses down my left thigh, skipping my throbbing center with just the barest breath, before continuing up my right thigh with the same small kisses.  His hands fall down to my hips and roughly pull me to the edge of the bed and towards his waiting tongue. ~ Axel and Izzy in Axel by Harper Sloan
 Turn on the AC and bring me a fan cause that scene was HOT

We finally made it to Wednesday! Only two more days until we can stay in our PJ's all day. This week's WACKY Wednesday is dedicated to Nettie and her problem of not getting up on time. LOL

Rock on chicks, Rock on.
Hola!  Over the Holiday season, Celie and I sat down and talked about a few changes we wanted to make to the blog for this upcoming year.  Since starting back in July, we have learned sooooo much about the blogging world and would like to continue to grow.  Here are a few of our goals for the upcoming year.

  1. We will be introducing a few new features to the weekly blog.  The first of which was launched on yesterday.  Bench Talk will be a feature that allows us to discuss general topics of interest to us and/or our readers.  We love to read your comments and respond so feel free to share your opinion and we will respond back.

  2. Celie will also be revamping On the Couch with Celie to be more focused on her top favorite shows, which will also include a weekly recap and live tweet during the show.  

  3. Last but not least is an issue that is near and dear to us. Being Thick Chicks, we often struggle with weight and striking the right balance between eating good food while also working towards a more healthy way of living.  To that end, we will be launching a fitness challenge (yet to be named) that incorporates our weight loss goals and our struggle to live a more healthy, holistic life!  We want our readers to get engaged and help us through the struggle while also sharing your stories of failures and success!  Keep a look out for that coming the first week in February!
 To those of you that visit on a frequent basis and to those who occasionally stop by, Thank You!  Please feel free to drop us a comment at any time.  ~ Nettie and Celie

Hola Chickes!  Welcome to a New Year with LOTS of new books to look forward to.

Goodreads Snyposis......Savage Secrets by Cristin Harber (January 1, 2014)

Savage Secrets (Titan, #4) Caterina Cruz has no home. No loyalties. No objection to exacting torturous revenge. Her life’s mission is to destroy the terrorist who murdered her family. Then she steps into an elaborate game of charades alongside a Titan Group operative posing as an arms dealer—and her newlywed husband. The sexy distraction may be more than she can handle.

Attacked with a psychedelic drug weeks before, Rocco Savage is plagued with hallucinations that threaten his new rank as Titan’s second-in-command. No one knows and he wants to keep it that way. Throwing him further off his game, he now has a wife with her own secrets he can’t crack and an agenda he can’t control.

Their mission—an elaborate deception of heated glances and passionate kisses—spins out of control. With Rocco's mind already compromised, can he keep his secret and his distance? And with Caterina's tragic past controlling her every move, can she keep the con up long enough to secure her revenge? Or will both go down in flames?

Savage Secrets is from one of our newly discovered authors.....Cristin Harber and is book 4 in her Titan Series.  So far I am loving it....not to mention the cover is smokin HOT which helps complete the total package.  Pick up your copy and give Cristin a shot!
