Testing Testing. Is this thing on? Looks like it is!


Now, I loved my old site with its sticky notes (done in my own handwriting, I might add). However, it was nigh impossible to add book information pages.

It might seen odd that I gave a romance novel a 4 when I couldn't stand the romance. Like, I despised Colton. What a controlling, patronizing asshat. Dude, a six pack does not wipe away your controlling "protecting" nature. No. Nada. Nein. Nope. In r...more

I really enjoyed this graphic novel. The artwork was excellent, and the Dresden story was very old-school Harry. I hope there'll be more original Dresden content like this.

This book was simply outstanding. Heart-wrenching, quiet, compassionate, and passionate, this was the best book of the series by far.

I had been looking forward to Nichole and Ryan rekindling their relationship for a while now, so I'm happy this book is focused on them.

The mystery (Brandon's disappearance and the surprise) didn't ring true for me, but I was still OK with it. It's h...more

I read this book after reading Book 2, so I think I had an easier time than anyone starting with book 1.

Firstly, this book was great. It's an excellent introduction to the series. Smart, confident women hooking up with kind, good men.

I have mixed opinions about this book. I can't decide if it's a 3 or a 4, but in the end, I decided on 3.

Pros:

*The suspense in this book was amazing. The plot, the investigation, all of it worked and worked well. It kept this book together and the e...more
Limelight by K. Ball
"I don't read a lot of romance or women's fiction, but this really hit the spot. I like that Anna & Ben are adults in their thirties (in fact, Ben is a tad grossed out when he's asked to play a romantic lead to a twenty-year old).
