's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: romance, thrillers, contemporary-fiction


Won't anybody think of the children?

Yeah, it was dark but delicious. There was a mystery that was better than Scooby Doo. (In case you didn't know, Scooby Doo is my go-to standard by which I judge all mysteries. I'm mature that way.) There was plenty of action, death, betrayal. These people had their own personalized coffee mugs at the local hospital. And, then there was the romance. Yikes! It was smutalicious.

But, watch out. Triggers!

I'm just wondering what he's trying to qualify for..

Yeah, the guy is rapey. But, is it really rape if she begs him to "rape" her and he gives her a safe word to stop at any time? It's more like a game. She runs, he gives her a head start then chases her down, and then they go to town. (you know. figuratively. They don't actually go to a town. They would probably just drive if they are going in to town, not run. (just wanted to clear that up.))

To each his own, right?
I'm just saying that if running is involved for my hubs to get lucky, he's not getting lucky. Cuz I ain't running. I'll consider walking. Maybe a nice saunter. But, running ain't happening unless there's a zombie apocalypse. Or, a sale on cheesecake. That might do it.


Hey, me too! We should totally do lunch sometime!

Thanks, Jessica. Everyone who doesn't agree on my running-stance can go straight to hell. Quickly!

Yum! I also love the Godiva cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory. That stuff is so decadent it should be illegal. :P
