I will make it short and sweet.

The humor?

Need an example?

His head drops and his mouth moves to my ear, his lips brushing against it, his tongue grazing against my skin while he says, “You would find nothing cruel about the way I would imprison you.”
Oh my God.
My ‘gina throbs sending a message to my, now, short circuited brain, “Get the penis! The penis is good!”
I’m pretty sure the ‘gina quiver is about to turn into a full blown seizure.
Fuck the shrink! Call the paramedics!

1.5 Why did this book have such a high rating?!?!

So, I have a bit of a book hangover. I've read something that I can't get over yet, so I said I'll take it slow, go with easy, fun stuff. I found this book, saw the high rating and not too bad plot, said I'd give it a try.
Well now, that was a mistake.

I can (almost) ignore all the grammar mistakes (and there are not a few, mind you). I won't stop reading a book, even though the author seems to have a problem with your/you're, I can almost say it's
Well butter my buns and call me a biscuit! Ms. Spoon had me at the blurb with First and foremost being with the complete and astonishing overhaul and revamp of the Belton Police Department, where apparently the application was changed to state ‘Ugly Men Need Not Apply’ and the only requirement is ‘How Well Do You Look in This Uniform?’ This is a must read! 4.5 Coyote Ugly Stars

Ms. Spoon then also had me at the beginning of the first chapter.

Thanks for the awesome rec, Noelle! Loved it!
I love this book. The writing style is similar to Kristen Ashley and I absolutely love her books. In most books it is the hero who was the man-whore, but in this one it is Ree who actually was the one who didn't want to settle down and would pickup men, but not be with them for more than a month. Usually she would sneak out the morning after. This is how she met Chief of Police Grayson Cole. The only thing that was a little bit of a puzzle for me was why Chief Cole was in Des Moine in the first ...more

Just what I needed last night. A fun, quirky heroine, a man in uniform, a small town intent on playing cupid, a stalker and I'm all set. It did take me a while to get into the book, and I did have to get used to the heroine's way of thinking and the descriptions, but when the hero came into the action, all is good.

Readers who enjoyed Kristen Ashley's Rock chicks will like this one.

Perfect title to this book. It was just plain ugly. Too over the top for me. Did not like Ree. Her behavior got old pretty quickly. Too many good books out there now to put myself through this torture.

WoW! I laugh my ass of while reading this! I enjoyed it very much. It could be called light reading, cause author had interesting approach. There were serious situations but with light approach they seemed less difficult and i really liked that.

That rule is called "One month" which means she can have relationship that lasts j

This story had me cracking up and and could not put the book down until the ending!

OMG, I loved Azaria "Ree", she is so blunt, no filter what so ever. She has what most any 27 years old woman would love to have, a great job, family, and friends. There is just one thing missing in her life, a relationship.

Ree is the "one night stand" type of woman, all because she is scared of getting hurt. She had one burn that changed her mind on the whole relationship thing.

I know I must have some serious OCD or something, that being said was the only reason I finished this book. I can't believe I did that to myself. Not only did this book urk the hell out of me but it made sleepy too. I would like you guys and this is just my oppion if you wanna read something simular. Check out A.J.

This book was LOL funny! I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t put this one down. Ree’s introduction was hilarious and it was cool to see a female character unapologetic about her one night stands. The storyline, sexual tension, and steamy scenes were all great. The hero Grayson was totally yummy as well as the rest of the Special Forces Sex Squad. Seriously there were a lot of characters and sometimes I feel overwhelmed by that but it didn’t bother me.

Review of Kindle ebook purchased in June, 2015

Cute little romance with a stalker thrown in.

Basically, a standard-formula romance story, throw in the h's good-looking girlfriends, match them up with a hunky, smallish town police force of ex-special forces guys, throw in a little suspense, and lovable small-town side characters. And good cooking, I like that.

That's all good for me!

I liked this well enough, but I didn't think it was anything fantastic. The heroine, Ree, was funny and likable, but she got really annoying at times -- especially when she kept using the term ' was used often and it got old very fast. The Hero, Greyson, was hot and sexy, but the reasons behind why he kept pursuing Ree was a bit lame. It seemed like the author was just making up a reason just to have a reason. I don't know how else to explain it. I am, however, looking forwar

I have a new phrase I hate and it is "‘gina quiver". It was used a lot in this story and even using it once is too many times.
The story had great potential, but you can tell it is a newer author. I'll read the next in the series as I'm sure the writing will become better as they go.
I also wasn't a huge fan of Ree. I like funny people, but not people who feel the need to say they are funny all the time. She was a bit too annoying for me and not cute and perfect as everyone described her to be.

This was such a unexpectedly refreshing read. Sometimes you read a book blurb and cautiously go into it wondering if you made the right choice. With this book I definitely did. By 10% I had already laughed out loud several times so I knew I was going to enjoy this.

Azaria (Ree) has one rule when it comes to guys, she will never invest more than one month of her time into them. She does not do relationships and love is definitely not on her radar. She has perfected the art of quietly slipping out

This book is about the life of Azaria "Ree" Gable, and how she has chosen to live it. At the age of 27, she is a "sleep with a man once type of girl" and then never again, unless they are exceptional, and they can last up to a month, and then she is on to the next one. She thought she was in love as a young girl but when it did not work out it broke her heart and she never wants to feel that way again, so this is how she conducts herself. Ree works as a graphic artist, and does it from her home. ...more
My Coyote Ugly Life begins with us getting to see the Coyote Ugly Life of Azaria 'Ree' Gable. The problem is maybe she's not exactly excited about her so called "life" anymore. Not only that, but when she moves back home to help her mom out more since she had a mini stroke, she never expected to see one of her one night stands that didn't happen in front of her.

But he's not just some guy in town, he's actually the Chief of Police Grayson Cole. And he doesn't want to let her go. He will do every
What a refreshingly funny read this was!! Was this book perfect? No. But it had me hooked from start to finish, and has left me wanting more books.

Ree (short for Azaria) Gable is a late twenties party animal semi-slut. She takes guys home, does the deed, and sneaks out in the night before they wake up. Ree is moving home to her hometown in Iowa, from Des Moines. Before she moves back, she ends up hammered and "coyote uglied" (for those of you unfamiliar with the term, it's when you wake up next

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

This is a really good, fun story, with a great plot which I enjoyed a lot. However, I have to admit that the over description of stuff, and people did distract me somewhat. I am afraid that I don't really care about the layout of a room, unless it impacts on the story; I don't care about the colour of someone's clothing every time they get dressed; and I definitely don't need everyone's life story, unless it comes out in c

At first Ree got on my nerves BIG time, but then I fell in love with her. Chief Cole….how could you NOT instantly fall in love with him? Holy smokes! The whole police department was a dream! This story was funny, sweet and had just a little drama to it. It was refreshing and fun and I can’t wait to see what is in store for the rest of the series. I only hope we will see more Ree and Grayson.

I received a copy of this story to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. Ree lives her life the only way she knows how. To keep herself from ever being hurt again, once in her life was enough. After years of one night stands and a few relationships that didn't last longer than a month, she moves back home to help her mom after she had a stroke. When she meets Chief Cole. She met him a few nights before and can't believe that he is in her home town. And he wants more than a one ...more

As I found this book on a list with "Books with a KA flavor", I knew what I was getting into. I've said it before, I'll say it again, some author who find inspiration in KA books does it well, some not so much.

I'm still confused about this book, and I don't know if I like it or not.
I don't know what to think about the heroine and her slutty "Coyote ugly life". I don't know if this was too much, or I'm just being sensible some topics.

This story was such a fun ride.

The heroine, Azaria better known as Ree is a commitment phobe. Yes, she has been around the block and was definitely a wild child. She's spunky, smart, stubborn, and I can totally see her hanging out with my group of friends. Needless to say, I really liked her spirit.

Grayson Cole is a gentleman, Alpha and hawt hawt hawt. He met Ree, liked her, was pissed when she snuck out on him and was on her tail when they met once again. Umm, did I mention that he i

This book was such an unexpected surprise! It had all of my favorite things - a hot alpha male, a sassy girl, great family and friends, just a hint of suspense, moments that made me laugh and of course there were some scorching hot sex scenes. Putting it all together, made this book grab me and suck me in. I think some of the best moments were Ree and her inner monologue. She truly was a "nut" - in all the best ways. What makes me even happier that I took the time to read this book - Ree and Gra ...more

Really good

I really enjoyed this story and liked the authors voice. Her characters felt real and I could relate to their lives because they were just like one of us.

Both main characters were lovable and I enjoyed watching their connection grow. Lots of steamy bits with some laughs as well.

I can see there will be some interesting hookups with their friends and I think Blaine's story will be the one I am looking forward to the most.

I came across this book in a "Similar to Kristen Ashley" Tag and while I have to say the heroine was very KA it isn't a Kristen Ashley knock off, I also got a little Tara Sivec from her with the "Thunder Cocks" and "Twat Taps" and my personal fav the "Cuntcicle". I loved this book I thought Azaria was plucky and entertaining and Grayson was the perfect alpha match to her crazy shenanigans.
