HIGHLIGHTS – CABLE, DVD’s, THEATRICAL RELEASES:

88 MINUTES: Mediocre whodunit, but the worse part was Pacino’s performance. I love him in just about anything and think he’s a great, legendary actor, but this part just wasn’t right for him at all. He seemed like he was sleepwalking through his scenes, and personally, I think he was just a little too long in the tooth. The part (and movie) would have been served better by someone younger, maybe in his mid-thirties, early-forties, but not much older. 2 Stars.

FIGHTING: Channing Tatum plays Shawn MacArthur, Alabama transplant trying to make a living selling counterfeit stuff on the streets of New York. The movie opens with him being taken for his product and money by a group of teens working for Terence Howard’s Fagin (Harvey Boarden). Shawn, however, gets into a fight with one of the boys and beats him up showing his prowess though he is unable to recover his money. He encounters Harvey a little later and Harvey offers to be his manager as Shawn navigates through the world of underground fighting for big dough. Carrying around some luggage from his past life in the wrestling arena with his coach/father and eager for redemption, Shawn is lured in. A rival from that past Evan Hailey (Brian J. White) keeps popping up on the scene, challenging Shawn. Of course, the climax involves a no-holds-barred, high-stakes match between this pair. There’s a sweet romance between Shawn and young, unwed mother Zulay Velez (Zulay Henao) who’s harboring some secrets of her own. Good, solid performances, good solid entertainment, but it’s the fight scenes that make this an above-average movie for me (and of course Channing Tatum ). 3 Stars.

MADE OF HONOR: Sweet and funny romcom with Patrick Dempsey (Thomas Bailey) playing a charming womanizer who has no intentions of settling down until his best friend Hannah (Michelle Monaghan) falls in love with and gets engaged to the perfect man (and I do mean a perfect-in-ever-way, rich and handsome Duke from Scotland Colin MacMurray played by the charming Kevin McKidd). When Hannah asks Tom to be her maid of honor, it’s all Tom can do to keep his sanity and not tell her outright not to marry Mr. Perfect Duke because he’s in love with her. 4 Stars.

OBSESSED: FATAL ATTRACTION (and Glenn Close) are still the king and queen when it comes to movies with obsessed and spurned lovers, but this one gives it the good old college try to keep its audience entertained. 3 Stars.

SEX AND THE CITY: THE MOVIE: It’s funny how the main character is my least favorite. Makes me wonder how I was a fan of the show for so long and why I wanted to see this movie at all. I guess the attraction for me is the camaraderie between the woman and the intimate peek into their glamorous professional and sex lives that keeps me a fan. Out of all the characters, Samantha is still my favorite and doesn’t disappoint here. The main storyline of course, is Carrie Bradshaw and her upcoming nuptials to Big. It’s obvious from the beginning that the pair is just going through motions and doing what they think they need to should do rather than doing what they both want which is just to get married and be together. When the plans turn the wedding into a Three-Ring-Circus production, Big gets cold feet and pulls out. The rest of the movie follows Carrie as she recovers from the public humiliation with her girlfriends in tow as they help her through the emotional pain of being rejected. This was a nice piece of nostalgic fun for Sex and the City fans, but like I said, some of the most entertaining moments, for me, come when Samantha is on stage. Carrie, as usual, just comes off as a spoiled whiner to me. Miranda and Steve go through their own emotional trials confesses to cheating, and Charlotte and Harry realize their fondest wish when Charlotte becomes pregnant. 3 Stars.

STAR TREK: In the year 2233 the USS Kelvin is fired upon and the Captain is killed when he agrees to board the enemy ship headed by vengeful Romulan Nero (Eric Bana) who blames Ambassador Spock for the destruction of his home. Captain for 12 minutes, George Kirk sets a collision course for the Kelvin with the Romulan vessel while his crew, including his pregnant wife, escapes the crippled Kelvin in shuttle crafts. The rest of the movie follows the escapades of James T. Kirk, Spock and Company as they grow to adulthood and become crew members of the USS Enterprise, whose first mission out pits them against Nero as he continues his time-traveling quest to get revenge against Spock. Awesome special effects, great non-stop action and adventure, humorous, fantastic movie! The perfect nostalgic thrill ride for Trekkies and Non-Trekkies alike! 5 Stars.

STRANGERS, THE: Three strangers terrorize a young couple in a remote vacation cottage. Creepier than the edge-of-your-seat suspense and the movie itself, was the motivation of the killers—almost too simplistic to be believed, which makes it all the more horrifying. Good solid horror movie with some really chilling moments. 4 Stars.

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS: Cameron Diaz plays ambitious, extremely-organized-to-the-point-of-anal-retentive career woman Joy McNally. Joy gets dumped by her fiancé on the night of his surprise birthday party which Joy has so painstakingly planned. Ashton Kutcher plays Jack Fuller, a slacker and womanizer who has just been fired by his own father. Jack goes to Vegas to drown his sorrows and paint the town. Likewise, does Joy. The pair meets due to a room mix-up and gets married during a night of drunken revelry. The morning after, they argue in the hotel lobby at breakfast, discover that they have nothing in coming and decide to part ways. Jack hits the jackpot on one of the slots with Joy’s quarter beginning the legal saga to decide who the million dollars belongs to since they’re legally married. Average, entertaining romcom made charming by the performances (I’m a Kutcher fan) and some cute moments of revelation between Joy and Jack as they try to sabotage each other’s chances for getting the money when they are forced to live together by court order and see a marriage counselor/psychologist. 3 Stars.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE: In the 1800’s, young James Howlett (Wolverine) watches his father murdered by his friend Victor Creed’s father, Thomas Logan. When James kills Thomas in an act of revenge with bone claws that have suddenly sprung from his knuckles, he discovers the horrible truth that Thomas is his father, which makes James and Victor half-brothers. We watch the boys grow from boys on the run to men who fight together in all of America’s major wars from the Civil War to Vietnam until they are given an offer they can’t refuse by one Major William Stryker who proposes the mutant brothers join his special ops group made up of elite mutants. Thus begins Logan’s and Creed’s history in Team X. The beginning of the end for the brothers when they part company after one particular mission that sees the brothers’ ideologies finally irrevocably tested as they butt heads on the true mission of the Team. Years later we watch as one by one members of Stryker’s Team X are murdered. Logan has settled into domestic bliss with girlfriend Kayla Silverfox, working as a lumberjack in Canada. It is here where he is tracked down by the unscrupulous and driven Stryker who once again makes an offer that Logan can’t refuse. Excellent special effects, non-stop action and adventure! Perfect popcorn, summer movie. The critics that I read didn’t really like this movie, and thought it was the worse movie of the series. I disagreed and loved this movie despite the critics’ bashings. 5 Stars.

Great book deals:

On the Writing Front:

I was contacted a couple of months ago by an agent from the Judith Ehrlich Literary Agency in New York who had read and liked several of my e-books and wanted to know if I was working on a series or two that would be suitable for print. Of course I got to work on one immediately and came up with an idea for a new paranormal series featuring angels and gifted human and shifter siblings. I’m going the New Age/Eastern religion route, rather than the Christian/Western religion versions we’re all used to from movies like OH, GOD, CITY OF ANGELS and HEAVEN CAN WAIT, to name a few, and enjoying the development and world-building process immensely. I’ve got characters and story ideas for at least five books so far (started with three). Will keep you all posted as to how the series is going and whether or not I can snag representation with my proposal, but to say I’m very excited would be an understatement.
As always, hope you enjoy this issue of The G-Spot!

SHADOW FOREST AUTHORS:
I joined and sent a few of my electronic and print books to this organization's beneficiaries.

If you haven't heard about it already, SFA is a wonderful, worthwhile cause and, if you’re an author, another way to get your book title(s) and/or name out there to the big wide world—a win-win situation .

There are a variety of ways you can contribute and you don't just have to be an author.

Please consider joining too!

“Shadow Forest Authors is a fellowship of authors for charity. Our mission is to get authors from around the world and from all genres to unite with SFA and participate in donating books and e-books to selected beneficiaries, literary foundations who fill a much needed void in books.

Unbeknown to many, illiteracy issues cost billions a year in higher consumer prices due to the cost of recruiting and training functional illiterates, mistakes and inabilities in the workplace, for juvenile delinquency and crime directly related to illiteracy In addition; social stigma, medical and pharmaceuticals with high rates of depression and suicide. Illiterates suffer self-worth, relationship, unemployment and social issues. Worldwide, this massive problem receives little funding or attention and as stated, costs billions.

SFA is now up and running and we invite authors to get listed and participate in this worthy cause. All we ask is that authors donate a copy of their title to a SFA beneficiary of their choice: the Anthony Robbins foundation - U.S.A, The Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation - Australia, Book Aid International - U.K, The World Public Library - U.S.A, Got Books Inc - U.S.A,

Participating authors receive a mention on the SFA site and the chance to sell further books via our unique supporter program.

Come join us, united we can fill a much needed void in worldwide literacy issues.

FLAMES PAST:

“Compelling and enlightening, FLAMES PAST is an excellent introduction to what has become a long, outstanding career of one superlative tale after another.

SENTINEL’S HUNGER:

SEXUAL HEALING FOR THREE:

“The different voices gave me insight into each character and each person was believable and real to me. I enjoyed the sex scenes. They were believable and I liked that not every love scene involved all three of them. There were scenes where Donna and only Russ or Chance were making love. I also liked that each man spoke to Donna of his love for her and that Donna gradually began to realize that while the sex was good with only one of the brothers, it was better emotionally for them all to be together. While the happy ending is unconventional it does satisfy and provide hope for their future. I will definitely read more of Gracie C. McKeever.” 5 Lips, Sheila, for Two Lips Reviews.

“Ms. McKeever weaves a spicy tale of a woman who has been hurt and the two men that help her overcome it and take a chance on love once more. When I originally requested this book, I didn’t realize that there would be elements of BDSM in it. Not that it distracted from it in the least. Having Russ being a practicing Dom was a pleasant surprise and balanced out the relationship between Donna and Chance perfectly. This is a wonderful read and covers the topics of abuse tastefully. I would definitely read Ms. McKeever’s work again. I give Sexual Healing for Three: The Matchmaker 4 ½ Delightful Divas.” Dakota for Dark Diva Reviews.

Blurb:

"Old World Evil vs New Age Passion" ... A centuries old djinni betrayed...A modern career woman and wife bereft...Can this thoroughly mismatched couple find comfort and vindication in each other's arms? More importantly, can Kane and Therese's love survive the ancient vendetta of one unforgiving and powerful demon djinni? Find out that anything is possible when a devout mystical being from the old world joins forces with an urban-reared spitfire from the new…

Excerpt (R):

Kane reached out a hand to caress a long cinnamon tendril that had escaped her upsweep and grasped her hand when she tried to tuck the hair behind an ear. He leaned in, brought the hand to his mouth and gently touched his lips to each finger in turn, lingering for a brief moment at her naked ring finger.

He slowly raised his eyes to hers, curiosity radiating bright from his green gaze, burning her with its intensity.

"It was time," she whispered.

Kane silently nodded, caressed a cheek with the back of his hand as Therese sat up and flung her legs off of his lap. He turned his hand to cup her face and she leaned into his palm, purring like a lion cub as she pressed her lips to the center of his hand.

"Is it improper to tell you that I want you, Kane? Because if it is, I'm going to have to be improper and tell y--"

He silenced her with a kiss, firmly melding his mouth to hers and plunging in his tongue, elated when hers eagerly greeted his. He slid his hands down her body, luxuriating in the soft silk that whispered against his skin, enjoyed it almost as much as the feel of her smooth cheek beneath his palm. He wanted to feel so much more of her, needed to feel her naked and flush against him, softer and more real than her silk covering.

Therese obliged, thrust her body forward and groaned when he cupped a breast and fondled her with a thumb through the sheer material of her blouse. "Kane..."

"Yes Teh-reese..." He worked at her buttons with one hand, thankful there were so few, even more grateful when the top fell open to expose shimmering caramel skin. He slid his palms across the silken warmth of her abdomen, brought his arms around to her back and drew her forward.

He held her for a long silent moment--delighted in the feel of her heart beating next to his, enjoyed the fluffy waves tickling his face, marveled at how seemly she felt in his arms.

But Therese could take no more inactivity, eased her arms around to his front and worked at the tiny buttons on his shirt. She reached an annoyingly snug one midway down, fought with it for several seconds before she lost her patience, popped it and the next few buttons off as she stared at him. "Couldn't you just, you know...poof, and get out of these clothes?"

He chuckled, shook his head and lifted her into his arms as he stood from the sectional. "I have waited too long to rush this." He buried his face in her neck, drank at her throat as he carried her to the master bedroom.

Therese cuddled deep, his tangy male aroma strong and heady like love, the feel of his muscled chest against her face stirring embers deep in her gut as he bent to carefully place her on the bed like the last playing card atop a 51-deck house.

She licked her lips, watched him as he stalked across the mattress. "How long have you been waiting?"

"Since long before you released me."

"I think I've been waiting for you even longer."

"Impossible." He slid her top off and went to work on the front clasp of her lacy bra as Therese reached for his belt.

She slowly unbuckled, returned his soul kiss as he dipped his head and dined on her mouth.

Kane brushed her nipples with his palms and she gasped, felt each bloom hard and tender beneath his touch. She reached for him, locking his hips between her thighs as she drew him close and finished removing his shirt.

He flung the garment across the room as soon as she was done, eagerly lowered his mouth to one full breast, taunted the nipple with his teeth and made lazy circles on her belly with his thumbs. Therese arched her back as he encircled her waist with his hands before moving to loosen the drawstrings of her pants. He fumbled with the knot for several seconds, finally just jerked the pants past her hips, removing her stockings and panties with them, all pretenses at taking his time gone.

Or so Therese thought before a needle scratched across a 45 in her mind as she noticed Kane's grimace when he kneeled astride her.

"Now, about this rubber of which you previously spoke?"

"Oh sweet Jesus..." She sighed and pressed her forehead against his bare, chiseled abdomen. He would have to remember that when all she wanted was to have him inside her. Now. "Condom," she mumbled.

"Con-dum?"

"I was teasing you, Kane."

"Nonetheless, you obviously had a reason for bringing up its usage?"

"Well..."

"It is something humans employ to make the experience more pleasurable?"

"Uh, sorta..." How could she go into the thousand-and-one modern uses for a condom with this eighteenth century genie-man? Did she even need to?

She knew she was negative and she was damn certain Kane was. The only thing they needed a condom for was to prevent something she wanted to happen more than anything in life.

"It's for protection."

"Oh, I believe I see now."

Good, now let's get on with this.

Therese helped him out of his pants, fingers trembling, stomach somersaulting, hands lingering on his firm derriere a moment longer than was wise before she started imagining how the muscles would work and tighten when he pumped inside her.

She brought her arms around him, felt resistance as she tried to draw him near.

"Would this con-dum or rubber increase your pleasure?"

Therese frowned. "What?"

"I will do whatever you require of me to please y--"

Therese put a finger to his full lips. "Having you inside would please me greatly."

A growl of raw need issued from deep in his throat as he drew her to him, kissed and licked his way down her shoulders to her belly, not missing a spot in between.

Therese writhed beneath his wandering hands, her entire being primed for his touch--his mouth, his tongue, his manhood--as he hovered at her center long enough to make her ache with growing need and anticipation.

She dragged her hands through his hair to the back of his head, urged him forward, almost sorry she did when he thrust his tongue at her core then pressed his mouth to her in an intimate kiss that sent the most violent tingles firing through her lower regions.

He braced her hips as she bucked beneath him and Therese blindly reached out, arms coiling around his broad shoulders, legs twining around his waist. She crossed her ankles behind his back, heard Kane gasp as she pulled him forward.

"As you wish." He grinned, left a languid trail of nips and kisses from her lips to her
lightly freckled chest, probing each dot and wondrous globe with his tongue as she loosened her hold and planted her feet on his calves.

She raised her eyes to meet his hungry gaze with her own. He planted a palm at each side of her head and she bit back a cry of surprise when he immersed his tumescence between her folds, plunging inch by bittersweet inch until he buried himself to the hilt, surrounded by her heat.

He cradled his face in her shoulder, motionless inside her as he moaned. "You are so warm and moist, Teh-reese."

She became warmer and moister at his words, wriggling beneath him as she tightened her pelvic muscles around his arousal. He gasped, supported himself on an elbow and reached up with his other hand to unclasp the pin holding her hair.

"So impatient, my mawla." He drew his fingers through long tendrils and smiled as he watched cinnamon waves tumble down around her face. "That is more like it."

She squeezed him again, sucked in a breath and almost screamed in protest when he raised up on his palms and withdrew so far he almost pulled completely out of her. "Why are you torturing me like this?"

"I torture myself as much." He eased back inside her, eloquent and sensual as he slid his hands beneath her backside and pulled her against him. She flung back her head and arched her hips, whimpering when he countered with a powerful thrust that rolled through her--insinuating, pulsing warmth.

Therese clasped the horse and rider pendant dangling around his neck, felt another surge shoot through her body. "Kane...Oh God, Kane!"

He trembled above her as the current blasted back to him from her medal before spiraling out to encompass the entire bed on which they lay in a shimmering blue field of energy.

Therese peered up at him, shaken and unsure if she were alive or dead, feeling like she was more the latter than the former until Kane wrapped her in his fiery embrace and held her close and she knew that it wasn't over, not yet.

"Hold me, mawla..."

The field expanded as she returned Kane's firm hug, vibrating hot around the room, then shrunk without warning, enclosing the two of them in its radiant circle.

Circle of life?

Therese almost laughed until she realized how feasible the idea was.

They frightened and awed her both, the thought and the circle, until Kane drove into her and obliterated all fear and thinking. She matched his rhythm--thrust for thrust, stroke for stroke--body superheated and slick as the circle dwindled and dwindled until it was but a tiny pinpoint of light hovering on the edges of a thundering climax.

Therese collapsed beneath him, breathless and spent as he cuddled against her, moist and warm.

He reached out and pushed stray curls from her face, kissed her eyes and nose and chin as she lay silent and gently shuddering with leftover orgasm. "Do not fear, mawla."

He knows, he always knows. "Kane?"

"Yes?"

"Will...will it always be like that?"

"By Allah, I certainly hope so."
