What I’m reading After Fifty…

after fifty
After finishing and loving the Fifty Shades trilogy I’ve been on the look out for another hot little book that I can totally and obsessively fall in love with. I have one or two (okay maybe eight) requirements:

1. It’s got to be HOT.

2. I quite like a bit of romance.

3. I’m very partial to a smouldering alpha male.

4. I do like an alpha male with “issues” especially if he’s saved by the love of a good woman.

5. I’m totally okay with him having any or all of the following: tattoos, a Harley Davidson, a dodgy past, the ability to turn into a werewolf, a military background and or a uniform, a dry sense of humour, can play guitar with his shirt off, some kind of sporting ability (but don’t get too technical about said sport because I’m likely to get bored).

6. I want to see a protective streak a mile wide.

7. No YA boys need apply (sorry men only).

8. Billionaires are okay by me.

So I created myself a shelf on Goodreads called After Fifty and I’ve been reading some very interesting books which I plan to review every Thursday until I get fed up with them and move onto another bandwagon.

One of the best things about the Fifty Shades explosion is the e cards.

  6. The first book I read after Fifty Shades was "Beautiful Disaster" by Jamie McGuire. Travis totally made me forget Christian! I highly recommend it!

    1. I loved Travis too, he's one of my all time favourite book boyfriends.

  7. You've got to check out the Masters series by Kallypso Masters. Hot covers, Alpha males, great stories. Highly recommended. And so many people who've read Shades, move onto these and love them.
