We are Lynsey Austin-Goddard and Mandy Desay. Also known as 2 Girls & Their Kindles (#2GKBLOG). Our shared passion for all things book related, authors, plots, characters (especially fictional book boyfriends) drew us together, and our incessant chatting about books turned into a blog in 2015. We soon we weren’t the only ones with book addictions, and since then we’ve met a huge number of like-minded readers and incredible authors with a share the same passion.
I am just on the right side of 40, wife and mummy to 2 gorgeous hellraisers (Evie 11 and Logan 4). I’m originally from London, now living just outside. My passion for reading started at a young age, I loved Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl, before eyeing up my mums vast book collection (working for Penguin, had its perks). One of my earliest reading memories is taking the bus to school at 11 years old reading Hollywood Wives (thank you mum-library!), it was a real eye-opener, I not only discovered how to give a perfect blow job, but also the romance genre… I will confess despite reading every Jackie Collins novel throughout my teens I did maintain my virginity until a respectable 18 years old, however, I had a few tricks I was ready to try out…
We love dirty sexy Alpha male’s. Our top fictional book boyfriends are;
- Lynsey ~ Hudson Pierce: he’s a strong, protective, brooding, tortured, possessive billionaire alpha, oozing pure testosterone out of every pore.
- Mandy ~ Bryce Clarke: I love a hot billionaire pantie melting dirty talking Hotel Owner
I’m 35 years old, single, haven’t been very lucky in love but I’ve drawn the conclusion that I haven’t met ‘The One’ deserving of my love. I began reading at a very young age and the first book I read was Sleeping Beauty. As I got older my first sexual encounter in a book was Lesley Pearce’s Charity but it was a case of in out in out and that was it. Fifty Shades of Grey introduced me to the erotica genre and I’ve been hooked on that genre ever since and it also helps that Jamie Dornan is now my Christian Grey.
We hope you enjoy 2 Girls & Their Kindles as much as we enjoy sharing our addiction with you.
