Guest Guilty Pleasure - Hiding behind my ebook reader

This Wednesday's edition of Guilty Pleasure is hosted by author Cheryl Douglas. 

Cheryl is currently on a book tour promoting her book Shameless (pretty cover) 

Please join me in welcoming her to Another Look Book Reviews.

My guilty pleasure is definitely the racy books on my ebook reader. Back in the day, I was too embarrassed to go into a book store and buy these books because I thought the cashier would assume I was a sex fiend. Instead, I would have them delivered from a perfectly respectable retailer in a non-descript brown box, stick them on a shelf in the back of the closet and read them when my son was napping. Needless to say, digital technology has changed everything!

Now I can take my guilty pleasure out in public, read it while I’m waiting in the car at my son’s school or during swimming and karate classes. Ssh, don’t tell the Grand Master, he scares me! As a voracious reader, I read a little bit of everything, including books about business and the law of attraction, but when I feel like an escape from ‘real life’ I love my happily ever mixed with a healthy dose of naughty.

Do you have an ereader of some sort? Do you like to read those sexy books and hide those racy covers too?     

It took me thirty-seven years to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up. I thought I'd found my calling. In fact, I worked as a nutritionist for twelve years before I finally admitted to myself that while I enjoyed my work, I couldn't imagine doing it for the next thirty years.

I love bringing my characters to life and I am so grateful to have readers who love those characters as much as I do.
When I take a break from writing it's to spend time with my husband (a.k.a. my real life hero), my son, and my writing partner, Tia, a spirited Havanese who enjoys tapping her paw on my keyboard whenever I need a little comic relief.

I'm so with you, Cheryl! My friends often refer to me as a smutaholic, but at least now only THEY have to know about that part of my personality. Not every person I run into on the planet. Because I tend to carry my smut with me wherever I go. My kindle has made my life so much less awkward. ;)

Thanks for hosting today Cheryl. I love your Guilty Pleasure because I share that same thought.
I love love my Kindle. Not just for the convenience but all those sexy covers are hidden.
It makes it easy for reading while at the doctors office or waiting in line.

Good luck on your book. I love your cover.

Thanks for having me, it's so nice to be here. I appreciate the feedback on the cover, Michelle. I'm so glad I'm not alone in my love of 'those' books! LOL!
