This Week On TV: The Royals


Those of you that actually follow The Royals, know that the season has ended for a while now, but I was a bit behind, ok? I only finished it a few days ago and let me tell you: this season was spectacular.

Season 1 was good on itself, but the personal drama of each of the family members overshadowed more important issues. Well, not on season 2.

The plot and overall direction of the show this season was fantastic, with each member of the family trying to find their own direction, while trying to find Simon’s killer and their relevance as well as the crown’s.

The characters got better, the visuals got even better, the direction was stunning. There’s one episode towards the end of the season where the transitions between scenes just blew my mind. Genious! And the acting! OH MY! If you’re not watching this show yet, you need to tune in now, because this cast will blow your mind. Elizabeth Hurley, William Moseley, Alexandra Park, Tom Austen and Jake Maskall were beyond wonderful this season *claps, and then claps some more*.

I admire how the show managed to keep some people, who are no longer present, relevant in this season. And OMG! The music! They use the most amazing tracks this season.

I was shocked about the direction and on finding what had really happened. I felt sorry for Cyrus and disgusted at the same time. I cried for Len and Jasper, and clapped effusively to Liam’s speeches. And Queen Helena stole my heart this season… I think I love her now. And Mr. Hill… oh you wonderful human being!

I can’t wait to see where next season will take us. Does that hand really means what we think it means? And what will that mean for the royal family? What will the paternity test say? What happened to Ted? Will we see Ophelia again (though I somewhat hope not)? Will Helena keep supporting her children? Will Len stay on the right path? She’s forgiving Jasper, right? And I need Liam happy… ok?

Now people, go check it out if you haven’t yet, because The Royals is truly a delight!

Innuendos (V. Kelly)


She wants him to squeeze her melons . . .

He wants her to hold his wood . . .

Max is the sole reason Breezy can’t keep a boyfriend. Every boyfriend she has ever had breaks up with her the moment they meet him. It’s not because of his eight-pack, or his panty shredding smile. No, the reason Breezy remains single is because Max is her best friend and roommate.

When Breezy’s new boyfriend dumps her after meeting Max for the first time, Breezy is determined to cure her boyfriend woes by challenging Max to a bet: she can’t click her mouse, he can’t wrestle his snake, and neither one can say the word sex or they lose.

It was a simple game of abstinence, until Max decides to tempt Breezy into a hilarious game of innuendos. Now, the only thing harder than Max’s “wood”, is figuring out just where their friendship lies after all bets are off.

One thing’s for certain . . .

All’s fair in sex, love, and innuendos.

I’ll tell you something about this book: it sure hell is funny!

When I started Innuendos I was a bit worried about how the Erotic Romantic Comedy thing would work, but I shouldn’t have been. While a lot of things are hinted upon, and innuendos are thrown out, and some sex does occur, it isn’t, by any means, one of the most explicit books I’ve read.

The writing was most of all fun, but the dialogs made me cringe at times and they (sometimes) felt a bit unnatural. On the other hand, I loved the internal dialogs, so there was a perfect balance. However, given that I read this fairly quickly, I noticed a few words that escaped through the cracks and shouldn’t have been there. During the bet, neither Breezy or Max can say the word sex, or anything directly related to it, however, they both do, without the other calling them up on it.

I really liked Max, I loved that he had no problems admitting how he felt about Breezy and how patient he was with her, even if he did this while sleeping around… a lot. Still, even with that, he appreciated women and was never disrespectful. Breezy, on the other hand, was a bit more complicated to connect with, because she was just so blind to what was going on in her life and with her feelings. The side characters were great, Maggie was totally hilarious. Max’s parents… OMG!

I felt that the first third of the book was a bit slow. While I understood the importance of establishing Travis’ importance in Breezy’s life, and showing the type of life that Max was leading, I wish that there would have been a bigger focus on Max and Breezy’s relationship from the start. When the focus shifts – a.k.a., when Travis finally meets Max – the book advances rather quickly and it’s increasingly funnier, because Max and Breezy’s verbal foreplay is hilarious. How could that girl think that that kind of flirting was normal thought, is beyond me!

All the innuendos were beyond hilarious, I think one of my favorite scenes was the changing room scene at Victoria Secrets, eheh.

I was a bit disappointed at Breezy when the bet finally ends, I expected her to be scared, but I didn’t quite predict what she would do, and I didn’t like it… it seriously broke my heart. Max deserved better.

There are a LOT of clichés in this book, like in all romantic comedies, but it’s totally worth the read. The situations they get themselves into are beyond funny, and Breezy and Max are a couple you can’t help but root for. Well done!
