A Spell for Chameleon by Piers Anthony
"A Spell for Chameleon by Piers Anthony, first in the Xanth series, was to be my quickie 49th book on my list. It proceeded to keep me delayed for days.

This book is toxic.

From a scene where it's explained how horrible it is for men to be convicted..." Read more of this review »

Giving It Up by Audra North
"I'd heard about author Audra North before, and the male lead is a submissive SWAT guy. Curiosity got the better of me.

Giving It Up fascinated me not only because of the seemingly dichotomous hero -although there is no real conflict or connection..." Read more of this review »

I read this because it seemed like one of those books were the impact would be seriously less if I'd seen the movie first, and since I really wanted to see the movie, this got moved up on the queue.
I really liked it. Loved all the math and survival-s

Scott Lynch
“They kissed for the sort of endless moment that only exists between lovers whose lips are still new territory to one another.”
Scott Lynch, Red Seas Under Red Skies

Josh Lanyon
“People did terrible things to each other- and half the time they did it by accident.”
Josh Lanyon, Come Unto These Yellow Sands

Josh Lanyon
“There was nothing like working law enforcement for a few years to give you a jaded view of human nature. No matter how well you thought you knew someone, no one ever entirely knew anyone else.”
Josh Lanyon, Fair Game

Courtney Milan
“You don’t expect love.” She shook her head in confusion. “This is the second time you’ve said that. Is this going to be like one of those dreadful novels where you warn me not to fall in love with you, and if I do, then you’ll turn into Bluebeard and try to lop my head off? You’re handsome. You have all your teeth.” She looked into his eyes and lightly touched her hand to his cheek. He grew very still. “I can offer you no promises. If you’re any good in bed, I might fall in love with you. If that is going to be anathema…”

“No,” he said swiftly. He looked away from her, and when he spoke again, there was a slight rasp to his words. “No. That would be perfectly…unobjectionable.”
Courtney Milan, The Duchess War

Josh Lanyon
“Last night they hadn’t even fucked. What the hell was the point of protective custody if you weren’t at least going to get to have sex with your protector?”
Josh Lanyon, Fair Game
