  • Eh. Jamie Frazier. (Outlander by Diana Gabaldon) If you have not read this amazing series, please do. Now. Jamie is the definition of "man".
    Slow clapping for Jaime Fraser :-)   He's hot.  In my mind anyway.

    Look for the Outlander series on Amazon.   The first book is called Outlander.

  • Is Christian Gray from 50 Shades? I would love to have a discussion about 50 Shades. I haven't read the book, but I'm curious about it.

  • Pretty much what it is.. But my sex life is gone for the time being and this book is reminding how amazing it. I'm reading the second book. I've read the whole twilight saga. I don't just read raunchy books though.
  • Okay so I liked those books for what they were - fantasy, distraction, etc.

    I do not like the idea of condoning those books for impressionable minds (i.e. the diehard tween fans of twilight) and I certainly don't like the idea of choosing either of those characters, even "just for fun."

    I prefer my men not controlling. I like to hang out with whichever friends I choose, wear whichever clothes I want, and when I say no I enjoy that my husband respects that.

    I wasn't even sure I wanted to watch the 50 Shades movie until OMG they cast Charlie Hunnam. ::swoon:: love some Jax Teller booty.

  • Nether I'm an Anita Blake fan...great vamp series!

  • Edward Cullen always creeped me out.  Christian Grey is probably good to look at, but would not want to be anywhere near his Red Room of Pain!

    Did you see that they're making a Starz show out of the books?  I can't believe who they got to play Jamie............ :(

    ETA:  Now I want to go read Outlander again.  I've never been able to get past the first book to read the others, because I'm so worried if I do, it will ruin how much I love Jamie & Claire.

    Ugh, fine.  I'll bite.  I'll start by saying I'm an avid reader of a variety of books, genres and themes.  By no means am I advocating that 50 Shades is well written or brings anything THAT meaningful to your life but I liked it. 

    I think it explores sexuality in a new way and allowed thousands of people to become a little more creative in the bedroom.  I finished those books and immediately ran to the adult store to get a mask and a feather tickler thing that DH and I had FUN with.  We've always been adventurous in the bedroom and I can see how if you're not that is too extreme to be enjoyable but I certainly got lost in the fantasy. Between Edward and Grey, I would go Grey all the way even with his red room.

    That all being said, I did start counting how many times she "peeked up at him through her lashes" in the book.  Gag!

    The sex never bothered me. It's his controlling demeanor OUTSIDE the bedroom.

    @amhah09 I get it but she basically gets her way in every aspect and he learns to let go.  It's part of the whole "she fixed him" fantasy.  It's totally unrealistic but it still plays to the story.  A broken billionaire shows up on your doorstep and you get to fix him, fall in love and live happily ever after with your dream career and all the money in the world.

  • Lol!! Yeah the boom isn't well written by any means but I like sex factor of it. It opens you up to a different world. That's the reason I like to read!

    I get it. I guess that's just no fantasy of mine. I don't want to have to fix a control freak.

    That's the only reason I was able to finish the series though. Because he did get better, I mean. I struggled reading the first book and refused to start the second one but I had a couple friends convince me to keep going. The first book I take a lot of
    issues with, for sure.

    Edited: andplusalso I did acknowledge that he had a lot of psychological issues (don't all controlling people?) that he did eventually resolve.

  • I don't like the controlling side of him. To be honest it makes me sick.. But he's gotten better so far ( I'm on the second book) and reading about the money and sex well.. What women doesn't want that?

    @amhah09 Oh, it's not my fantasy either!  I just thought it was an interesting area to explore on such a public forum.  I would certainly never put myself in that situation but those issues are out there in the real world and they are entertaining. 

    After everyone and their mom read the books I had one close friend come out to me about being into the BDSM lifestyle.  (FYI- She hated the books for the control freak  problem too).  Now that took me off guard but apparently it's big around this area.  There are groups and stores and all kinds of weirdness.

  • To be honest, I've never had any kind of sex like they do in the book. But I also wouldn't mind trying it either. Just when I feel more sexy and not pregnant. Haha
  • @seannasmommy16 I read DH a few choice picked parts of the book and he just wasn't into it... a girl can try right??

  • @LittleLady77 My dh is very into pain and things like that. But I'm very boring when it come to sexual things, I hate to admit it.. I'm kinda hoping these books will do us some good after I have the baby. I'm not feeling sexy enough for the things that are in this book. Haha
  • I read it when I was pregnant with DD and it didn't amp up my sex life either (as in the amount of sex we were having, not the type of sex).
