I can always go back during a self-editing process and smooth out roughness or rework passages. But being blocked to the point of shut-down isn't something I allow myself.(less)

Haleigh's Ink by Jennifer Kacey

Overall, I like my erotic romance to involve a lot of steamy sex (which this book has in triplicate, yay!) but I also like a lot of depth and heavy plot. I felt it lacked the latter a great deal, unfortunately. It’s an entertaining read that will def ...more

All Things to Everyone is definitely an engaging read that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to adult readers and any child who is reading at this particular level. There’s enough tension to maybe make some younger children squirm, but my sons are 7 a ...more
