Tempted by Two by Portia Da Costa {Book Review}

Warning this review contains sexual explicit material

Katie has been an admirer of Marcus Dane's work for a long time, ever since she'd been searching for a wedding gift for a friend, and happened upon print of one of his works. He was gorgeous, and very talented. His work made her blush, but in a very good way.

While out at one of his art shows, she runs into Marcus Dane himself, and gets to know him and what inspires his works of art, especially his newest piece, Tempted by Two, which is a painting of two men and a woman in apparent sexual chemistry.

It wasn't until Marcus extended an invitation to take her back home, did she start fantasizing about being in a rendezvous with two other men. Now that she has the opportunity, will she run for the hills, or embrace her sexuality and live life to the fullest?

Marcus and Owen are a bi couple who can appreciate the male and female figure for the sexual beings that they are. They open up their hearts and their bed to Katie, inviting her in with welcome arms. 

Katie eventually lets of go of her inhibitions and goes where her fantasies take her, with Marcus and Owen together. 

This is tantalizing tale of a girl going beyond her comfort zone and finding herself out in a threesome with two other men. This book goes into great sexual detail of all the fun they have together, and is not meant for any squeamish, prude minds. It's safe to say, you must keep an open mind while reading this book, and use your imagination to appreciate the creativity Portia Da Costa has written. i would rate this book 5/5 for an amazing sexual experience.

Still Alice: A Novel by Lisa Genova Sidekick to the Novel by Katherine R. Miller {Book Review}

Another great sidekick book by Katherine Miller. This one is a match to the book Still Alice by Lisa Genova. Still Alice is about what it's like to have Alzheimers. Alice is a very smart psychologist who is in denial about having the disease. The sidekick will help you understand why she's in denial despite her being highly intelligent and aware of the signs of the disease.

Still Alice will bring most people to tears as you're taken on a ride with Alice as she slowly falls into the arms of the disease. You can tell there is thought and emotion evoked into each sentence. You will feel every emotion Alice feels, because her words and thoughts are just so powerful.

The sidekick dives into the hidden meanings behind some of the plots in the book. Some say Alice is too much aware of what is happening to her body as her brain turns over to Alzheimers, but no one can truly know what it's like to be in Alice's shoes.

This is a must read for anyone who is dealing with someone with Alzheimers, or Dementia. You cannot read Still Alice without it's sidekick which helps you understand what is behind Lisa Genova's words. Just when you think there can't be any more emotion added to this book, you open the sidekick and realize there's so much more behind the book that isn't blatantly apparent when you first read through Still Alice. It opened my eyes to the book, which opened me up to understanding more about the disease, and the author herself. I enjoyed reading the sidekick. It is a perfect match to Still Alice and compliments it very well. I give this book 5/5.
