Simon & Schuster sends a bunch of books to us to check out and then giveaway to you guys. We love that they do this because we know many of you are readers. This blog wouldn't have happened if we didn't have a girl who loved a book then loved the man who brought the character to life.
Shades of Jamie Dornan was sent because Fifty Shades of Grey is out this weekend....in case you've been living under a rock. ;)
Are you going to see it? Did you read Master of the Universe or just the published book? I will have seen the film by the time this blog posts but I wonder when Rob's checking it out....
We, of course, know that Rob and Jamie go way back but the media is just catching on since Jamie's star is rising. There's mention of Rob in this book as well, on page 133 so if you're a winner, keep a look out! Here's the synopsis for Shades of Jamie Dornan by Jo Berry:
From film and TV critic Jo Berry comes the unauthorized biography of model-turned-actor Jamie Dornan, starring as Christian Grey in the wildly popular Fifty Shades of Grey film!
Jamie Dornan is quickly becoming a megastar. The announcement of his lead role in the upcoming movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey caused a media frenzy and he has been hitting the headlines ever since. After English actor Charlie Hunnam stepped away from the role, Dornan was catapulted into the international spotlight. Previously a model for Calvin Klein alongside Kate Moss, he has appeared in Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, has dated Keira Knightley, was cast as the sheriff in the hit fantasy TV drama Once Upon A Time, and followed it up with an acclaimed leading performance in the TV thriller The Fall. With details compiled from in-depth research into both his personal and professional life, this insightful book will reveal fifty shades of Jamie Dornan—a no-holds-barred biography of the man who everyone wants to know intimately.Also on this day (the 13th), the XOXO podcast is out and author Kresley Cole is talking about Fifty Shades of Grey:

Last time, I was jonesing for some more canon fic and was in the mood for the fantasy genre. I wanted to get down down down with that world again. But I didn't know where to settle! This isn't fic but a friend recommended I read Pleasure Unbound. This is the first book in a series Goz mentioned to me years ago! I dived in and man. MAN OH MAN. I loooooove it. I'm on book 2 and this stuff is HAWT. It's the Demonica series. I don't think I can even do a synopsis justice here. I tell you it's about demons and some of you might turn away. But come on! We love a vampire. Surely you can be open minded. ;) Because trust me. You will LOVE this demon. His name is Eidolon. I pretend he's Edward. And Tayla is Bella. Shade is Jasper. Wraith is Emmett.
What. So I have fanfic syndrome. Don't send help. Just check out this series. Click HERE to purchase or read an excerpt HERE. I love how detailed this world is. And it's not completely unrecognizable. It takes place in New York City and a hospital so you can relate to that in case I've scared you. Don't be scurred. And I still have Deep In The Heart Of Me to keep me attached to my fanfic world. The last chapter had my emotions giving me whiplash. I was grinning like a fool and then tearing up. Such is the life in a counselor story. Ulie's out and now we see what adventures that brings for Tonio.
