The Problem with Fifty Shades and other Sex Movies – NSFW

I wrote this when the first Shade movie came out, but it still applies today.

Simply put: not enough full-frontal male nudity. (Hey, I’m Trashy. What did you expect?) When I asked my friend Paula if there was a lot of naked in the movie, her answer indicated the R rating was mostly one-sided. “Gah….so frustrating! Saw a flash of his penis in one scene, but a lot of his backside. Every nude scene of her was a totally naked scene, even showing her pubic hair.”

Update: Does Fifty Shades Darker go where few movie men have gone before?

How disappointing is that? Nudity in movies and TV should be equal opportunity for all. Women have been stripping for the camera for years. Why can’t men do the same? It’s unfair to female movie goers that we don’t get to see as many balls onscreen as men get to see boobs.

wheres-the-beefThat’s what I’d like to know.

What good are R ratings with warnings about graphic nudity and strong sexual content if only half the audience is satisfied? And don’t even get me started with misleading titles like The Full Monty. Magic Mike? Plenty of bare ass but no joystick. We can only hope Magic Mike XXL will have the balls to blaze new ground for male naked.

Maybe if we boycott sex movies like this writer Hollywood will pay attention and give male nudity fair representation. In the meantime, enjoy this man butt gallery.

Goodbye 2016!

This past year has been a difficult one for a lot of people, but for me, it wasn’t too bad. I signed with a new publisher in February, and they released the first book in my new contemporary romance series in July. I finished writing the second book in October, and started developing a dystopian romance series I plan to write after I finish book 3. I’m also working on a short story to release in the next month or so.

The year was full of personal ups and downs. I was diagnosed with endometriosis in May and had a hysterectomy in June. But I’m feeling much better now. We built a beautiful new house and moved in just before Halloween. Next spring we plan to bring a dog into our home.

The New Year brings a measure of uncertainty. My daughter will be going to a new school so my schedule is going to change. I’ll adapt eventually, but it’ll take some time. But I have books to write and good books to read, so if the need for escape arises, I’m all set.

#NewRelease! ALPHA PREZ AND THE FIRST LADY’S SECRET WEAPON by Kendall Grey

alpha-prez_cover

With guns like these, who needs the Second Amendment?

Terrorism. Corruption. Lawlessness.

Criminals are literally getting away with murder while career congressmen sit in their ivory towers, wringing their hands, calling each other names, and pointing fingers.

The American people are fed up with the same old empty promises from politicians. It’s time to elect a president who will kick some ass.

Enter Jake Hammer, the sexy-as-hell senator and presidential hopeful from Massachusetts. His stance on combating terrorism is as hard as his abs. His commitment to pound purveyors of corruption into submission makes his constituents swoon. His vow to nail criminals leaves female citizens breathless.

With a landslide sweep of the Electoral College, Jake and his mysterious new bride Setta are heading to the White House, but neither the president nor the first lady are what they seem. When a dangerous enemy from his past returns, their marriage may not be the only thing under fire. The country he worked so hard to save could go up in smoke.

Now, more than ever, the United States needs a hero.

Alpha Prez to the rescue.

* This action/adventure story contains adult language, a sizzling side of hot sex, and lots of law breaking. It is not appropriate for readers under the age of 18.

** No politicians, political parties, or feelings (I hope!) were harmed during the making of this novel. This story was written in good fun and is not intended to push any political agenda.

*** Laugh! It’s better than crying. 🙂

Love has No Limits

FB header no limits
 
You may have noticed a slight change in my branding recently. I’ve been working on my image as a writer for several years, trying to figure out how to represent my books and myself. I think I finally got it right.
 
I first wrote the words love has no limits in His Twisted Choice, the final book in my ménage series, The Twisted Mosaic, but I’d been thinking about them for a long time. When I adopted my daughter (who is African-American; I’m not), I learned that love is so much more than storybook relationships, and I’ve been working that idea into my books and my life. I’m now using the tagline Love has No Limits because that idea not only fits everything I write or will write (interracial, deaf hero, MFM, even paranormal and dystopian) but it fits who I am in writing and in real life. That’s what author branding is all about.
 
Many people think romance novels are only about sex. I started writing romance to deal with my lack of sexual experience and the guilt I faced growing up, but my writing has become bigger than steamy sex scenes. It’s about what I believe, how I live, and my hope for my daughter’s future.

#FeatureFriday Love Always, Kate

Love Always, Kate
by d. Nichole King
Kate

Dear Diary, 

Leukemia’s been my life since I was eleven. Now, six years later, I want my life back. Only I’m not sure what that is. The test results came back today. 22,000. Which means I’m officially out of remission—again. I have three options: 

1) Another round of chemo. 

2) A super-new experimental drug. 

3) Dump it all— forget the meds and treatments and enjoy the time I have left. 

I think I know what I want. Then, in walks Damian, changing everything. 

I mean, everything… 

He’s got his own set of issues. It binds us together, you know? We understand what it’s like to lose what matters most in seconds. Still, the last thing I need is to have someone else to crush if I can’t fight hard enough. And the last thing he needs is someone else to grieve. 

Never mind. I’m down to two options now. 

Somehow I know that whichever one I choose, the result will be the same. With the sand in my hourglass seeping to the bottom, I hope there’s enough left to show Damian that life’s worth living. 

Worth fighting for. Worth dying for. 

Love Always, Kate

#FeatureFriday The Dead Don’t Lie

THE DEAD DON’T LIE by Camille Taylor

Harbour Bay Series #3

DL3

 Club X—where fantasy and reality collide…

For notorious sex club owner Aimee Burnes, it’s all about business. That is until her estranged sister, Louisa, is found dead in the small, coastal town of Harbour Bay. Having always been the favourite of their hyper-religious mother, there’s no logical explanation for Louisa’s untimely death—unless she wasn’t the angel she was believed to be.

Aimee will do anything to protect her club, including corrupting a detective with old-fashioned ideals…

James Hawke is Harbour Bay’s newest detective. He’s a country boy through and through, and he’s not prepared for Aimee’s assault on his senses. When he’s sent undercover into Club X to collect intelligence on Aimee and her clients, James wants to believe she’s genuine. The only thing he knows for sure is he wants her in ways he never wanted anyone before. Deep undercover, he must sacrifice his morals to get close.

Aimee is a master of manipulation…

Aimee will do what she must, even if it means taking her seduction of James too far. With both of them craving more than an intense encounter leaving them sweaty and satisfied, outside dangers challenge their newfound bond. But when the medical examiner finds incriminating evidence pointing to Aimee as her sister’s killer, James is forced to choose…

Will he honour the oath of his badge, or believe in Aimee’s innocence, regardless of the evidence stacking against her? With her lies unmasked and her innocence questioned, proof lies in the DNA evidence.

The dead don’t lie…
