  1. Hello Ladies!! it's sooo good to be back.  After a first read of CBY I have to say I'm on the fence, I'm a little disappointed with it; I'll defo need a reread to make sense of the book as a whole and to figure out why it hasn't met my expectations to the full.  Perhaps "therein lies the rub". I''m going to "revisit and revise" in order to be able to take this New Gideon in.  What a marked difference there is in both register and rhythm from Chapt. 13 onward, and the second part of the book is way better than the first one. Â
  2. https://www.sylviaday.com/2014/05/11/captivated-treat-4/#.U2_W2xP5tik.twitter  Hello Ladies, here is the latest CBY Snippet from Sylvia!!!
  3. Hello everybody!!! A re-read? I'm in!! Â It's been quite a while since I last popped in here and I'm mesmerized by the new decor of the site, The snippet has only make me crave for more so YES going back to EWY would help, me at least.Â
  4. WOOOOOO HOOOOOO!!!!!!!! what a way to start the New Year Â
  5. Hi hotreads I believe Corinne was simply taken aback by Gideon's slipping away from her and was acting on it out of sheer terror to have to let him go. I can almost feel pity for her (when I'm in a really good mood, lol)
  6. Hi Betty, you're right. But what if the said man is always there for you? If you're in love with him you'll hold on to that with all you have got, won't you?
  7. Hello Ladies! I just came across the post GLH has mentioned... here it is!! He's the author of the Game of Thrones Series, if I remember well.
  8. Hello dogcaffeine  I agree with you 100%!!! Far from me to sound judgemental. You're right, being truthful to the character is going to be a challenge within a challenge for whomever will be playing Gideon, or Christian Grey at that.
  9. Good afternoon everybody! Rob is really good-looking, and I really liked him in Downton Abbey, but IMO his gaze lacks in helplessness...maybe it's only the wrong pic.
  10.  Hi jeanmarie and dgcaffein! Gideon didn't want to be seen in public because Eva's runner, like the limo scene earlier on,  had cracked his hard shell and he was afraid his face would reveal  those very emotions he had been striving all his life to suppress. Gideon's mask as the self-assured, ruthless financial mogul can't hide the hurting boy any longer now.
  11. Good morning GiGi!!! I was thinking perhaps Geoffrey bequeathed Gideon some money. There couldn't have been much left after Geoffrey's fraud has been uncovered....but still Lizzardy might have seen that money as a compensation for her totally ruined life.Â
  12. Hi jls!!! I'm afraid her selfishnesss goes well beyond that!!!! While I can understand Vidal's reasons not to adopt Gideon, I believe that In refusing to give Gideon her own name Lizzardy is failing to protect him, again. She might have told herself she had a lot on her mind in the aftermath of Geoffrey's death, what with landing herself a new rich husband and her two pregnancies; she might have told herself she was respecting Gideon's own wish to keep his father's name. At the end of the day, it was Lizzie who wasn't able/didn't care to forsee the hardships Gideon was bound to suffer under his father's name. And I won't talk about any money line, that wouldbe too mean even for her!
  13. I'm thrilled to death!!! Thank you Syilvia for putting up with what must be an uneasy predicament for you to be in.
  14. Thank you Sheena. You always make my day. I can't stop grinning!!!!!! PS: I second each and every word of yours.
  15. Hello GLH I had the same bad feeling about Brett when Eva invites him for a drink after their dinner date at Arnoldo's (Reflected). He already saw himself well-off and cosy in Eva's apartment and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he were invoved in the s*x tape gate.
  16. Thank you Sylvia, you are always the best! Even your back covers are emotionally demanding. <3
  17. Hello ladies!!!!! It's only 11.15 a.m. here in Italy and I'm already salivating!!!!!!! lol Frisky Friday has turned into Wilde Saturday, but you can't help it when Henry is around!      I don't know how C. Eastwood's son looks like, I'll google him for sure.
  18. Good morning ladies it's so good to be back on the forum after quite a long time!!!  Hi Jennifer, spanking is first mentioned in Bared on page 51 (chap. 4, Penguin edition) and Cary dismisses it as 'not deviant' (page 56) As for the sex swing, for the life of me, I can't remember where it is, but I'll fnd it!!!  After so many rereadings, I've come to the conclusion that Gideon is not a Dom per se, but a man who wants to live out those sexual fantasies his 'Sub' (Eva) is only willing to share. Kinkiness was a means to avoid intimacy with him, not a way to achieve satisfaction of any kind. Since the very beginning of their story, Gideon is only looking forward to take care of Eva's pleasure, ("Romance isn't in my repertoire. But a thousand ways to make you come are. Let me show you." page 40, is one of many instances) and when she takes control in the first limo drive to the Advocacy Center's fund-raiser dinner, he completely lost it. As a Dom, Gideon sucks!!!  I need to have Captivated By You in my hands like NOW!!!!!!!!
  19. Hello everybody! I'm trying to figure out how to make things work with my new computer. I'll post just one pic.. Ok, mission accomplished. Sorry, I was having withdrawal symptoms!!!!
  20. Thank you so much for the master list, GiGi. It's so good to sort out the books I've already read! Â
  21. Hi GiGi! I'm reading Dating a Cougar by Donna McDonald now, and it is good indeed!! It's Book #1 in the Never Too Late Series.
