I Want Romance!
« on: July 10, 2012, 11:15 PM »
I am in the mood for some mind blowing romance! I love historical,paranormal,modern, pretty much romance of all kinds.
I'm looking for romance with always a good ending, and I want one thats gonna keep me turning the pages!
Teen romance is good too, but only if its got good sexual tension!
Adult romance is preferred (or teen w/ sensuality), because I want some sexy situations that give you butterflies! (Ah, you girls know what I'm talking about  ;) )

I loved the Fifty Shades series, especially the second book scene where he shows her that he loves her so much where he would become her submissive and he gets on his knees! Oh gosh, I want romance like that! If you girls know what I'm talking about, you better hit me up! :)
I also loved the Wallflower series by Lisa Kleypas..Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon.. those sorts of things are nice ;) & Then of course I love Twilight.. Anywho..let me know if you have suggestions!

I think ur reading taste match with mine. & I dnt go near a book if I'm not promised a happy ending! I LOVE Fifty Shade Series. I'm not into BDSM much but Fifty shades series is not only about that. Whenever I search for some suggestions for books that are similar too Fifty shades I always end up with BDSM centered plot, not the kind of romance & love between Ana & Cristian I'm searching for. I dnt mind a liitle bit dominance/possessiveness from hero. I think it adds into the sexual tension. I did not read Wallflower & Outlander series. Can u tell me if they are good romance books like Fifty shades?

Now for some book suggestions... do u like mystery suspense romances? Have u read Pamela Clare's I-Team series or Linda Howard's Mackenzie Family series? I absolutely love them specially the 4th book of the I-Team series "Naked Edge". I've read good reviews about an YA series - "Slammed" & "Point of Retreat" by Colleen Hoover. Haven't read it yet. So cant tell if it has any sexual tension.

I'm not into BDSM either & I know. Its so hard to find that romance that gives you butterflies :( The Wallflower series is realllly good! its historical romance and the romance is so completely heart-warming!! The first book totally gives you that 50 shades vibe, and its hard for me to say that! Outlander series is slower and its more the storyline then romance although its all about them, its kinda hard to explain. Its really good, but its long. There are some moments when your like, OMG get in bed already! Lol. Anyways, its really sweet but its got a lot of outside conflicts like alll odds are against their love and its pretty insane. But anyways, i dont know if I like mystery suspense romances or not.. Its really hard for me to know when to read a book or not to. I feel like descriptions of books turn me off of perfectly good books :( Ah, what to do, what to do.

I think I have wallflower & outlander series's on my to-read list on GR. So I'll give them a try. I've finished "Slammed" & "Point of retreat". I liked Slammed, but can’t say the same about point of retreat. It's not something that matched ur description in ur first post. Now I'm reading Significance (Significance, #1) by Shelly Crane. Just on chapter 7 & the story is just started to develop. Not sure if I'll find heartwarming romance between hero & heroine but the story is totally unique. It's a fantasy YA novel.

I am telling you, don't think just go for it..... okay it doesn't have the steamy scenes like some other books(initially) but romance is full on :-* and moreover the chemistry between the main pairs is awesome.


'Your welcome' to everyone who liked my recommendation

I love Fifty Shade book too. Now, I have to stop reading because I'm waiting for the movie to come out. Does anybody know who will be playing Christian and Anna?

They are still deciding it and keeping it between themselves. :( But they wanted Matt Bomer as Christian. :azn: btw, I haven't read Fifty Shades but if Matt Bomer would do it, I'll be watching it. :P

Matt Bomer Profile:
Born: October 11, 1977 (age 34), Spring
Height: 5' 11" (1.81 m)

He kind of old for the character cause Christian is only 27 and tall. He does look good . He kind a short too. I like Ian is kind a cute but he kind a short cause is only 5'9.
 
Who should play Christian?

   Michael Fassbender
   Alex Pettyfer
   Ian Somerhalder
   Robert Pattinson
   Ryan Gosling
   Kellan Lutz
   Chris Hemsworth
   Ryan Phillippe

Who should play Ana?

   Jennifer Lawrence
   Kristen Stewart
   Olivia Wilde
   Megan Fox
   Evan Rachel Wood
   Nina Dobrev
   Minka Kelly
   Felicity Jones

Megan Fox is hot but I don't think she fit the character of Anna.

Well he is kinda old for Christian cause I read somewhere that Christian is like mid-twenties. :)

And they also want Emma Watson for the Ana role. And Megan Fox could do it too. :azn:

Christian is 27 and Ana is 22. Geez, I saw Chris Hemsworth's name again  :omg: What is wrong with this people  :(

I like Amanda Seyfried or Alexis Bledel as Ana since they have big expressive eyes  :laugh:

beth kery.
christine feehan(paranormal)
elizabeth amber
lorelei james
lauren dane.
that should help for a while im still reading lora leigh... very good.
i think you might like bound hearts or elite ops.
