Elaine White's Life in Books

The Author


Elaine White is the author of multi-genre romance, covering everything from paranormal, crime and contemporary. Growing up in a small town and fighting cancer in her early teens taught her that life is short and dreams should be pursued. Living vicariously through her independent, and often hellion characters, she lives comfortably at home with a pack of wolves cleverly disguised as one standard poodle. The Winner of two Watty Awards – Collector's Dream (An Unpredictable Life) and Hidden Gem (Faithfully) – and an Honourable Mention in 2016's Rainbow Awards (A Royal Craving) she has explored the worlds of multiple genres, but remains a romantic at heart. A self-professed geek, Elaine has fallen in love with reading and writing LGBT romance, offering diversity in both genre and character within her stories.


The Reviewer


I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted.

Fifty Shades of Blue

Fifty Shades of Blue - Jem Lowe It took me a while to decide how I feel about this book. On one hand, it's a very clever, entertaining story of how a man views marriage, sex and overall, life. On the other hand, there are just some things I could live quite happily not knowing.

The Big G moment, I completely could have done without as it made me wobble precariously between liking the main character Paul and hating him. But in the end, like won out.

The 3 stars is for the confusion. Without the short, brief moments of absolute hatred I felt towards Paul, and how I really could have done without hearing about his fantasies and knowing Anna in any way shape or form, it probably would have been a 4.5 star. As it was this book completely corrupted my now addled brain (which I had thought was complete by reading Game of Thrones; not so) but I would however, consider reading more by this author. Overall, quite confused about how I felt about the whole book, though there were definitely some laugh out loud moments, literally.
