only? try trying to read with Caleb touching stuff, kissing you, and saying "mommy, can I play on your ipad?"
But I need this angsty read, I need it:D


Lou~❧Powerless Over 1-Click❧   | 1752 comments Trust me, ONLY was said in a highly sarcastic tone.


Lou~❧Powerless Over 1-Click❧   | 1752 comments And I'm starting to feel like I'm chasing you around GRs.

I didn't enjoy book 2 that much so Wes and Bray aren't favs of mine.


Lou~❧Powerless Over 1-Click❧   | 1752 comments Wow, you are really making progress. I haven't started the Tremble book yet, and if I get to it tonight it will be late. I have a phone conference that I'm praying not to fall asleep on, and then I MUST finish reading book 3 of a series I am HOOKED on. I will try to read Tremble and Pretend simultaneously. Hope I remember to keep breathing! LOL

Lou, read books that are hitting the spot.
Don't worry about tremble or Pretend. It's okay if you don't even read them. I only read it because Caleb kept me up last night and there was no school today because of that "snow" fall from Sunday.

Pretend isn't as good as tremble so far, so don't sweat it.
I think I will try (Watch Me) Break You (Run This Town, #1) by Avril Ashton next.

I liked WMBY, but then I'm a diehard Avril Ashton fan. I think I'll read (Watch Me) Unmask You (Run This Town, #3) by Avril Ashton next. The slumber party is Friday night.

Lou, I love these covers.

They are beautiful. Did you notice there are no models used on the covers for this series?


Lou~❧Powerless Over 1-Click❧   | 1752 comments Btw, how bad is Pretend? It's one of my challenge books so I have to read it.

Oh no. I did not say it was bad at all. I'm only on chapter 3. I watched Switched by Birth, black sails and played UNO with my kiddos.
Well, I was guiding Caleb as he was putting down any card he felt like regardless of color

I am shocked that this is the same author who wrote Collide because Stay and Pretend were not engaging to me.
I have had to fight myself not to put it down and switch to something else TWICE.

But I am not feeling GAvin or Mason.
Issue with Mason--he's feelings about his parents and (view spoiler)

Gavin: I feel for him because that's harder


Lou~❧Powerless Over 1-Click❧   | 1752 comments Ezi, did you finish this book? I am somewhere in Chapter 4, and I'm not sure what I think. I keep waiting for something to happen. Pretend has over 250 pages, so this isn't a short read. I am determined to power my way through.


Lou~❧Powerless Over 1-Click❧   | 1752 comments It's interesting how you can't always predict who prefers bottoming.

I didn't enjoy it. It was boring. I'd never met a bossier bottom than Mason. He was full of it. His parents loved him and he was so damn self centered


Lou~❧Powerless Over 1-Click❧   | 1752 comments Well, I finished it. I enjoyed Pretend much more than I initially thought I would. (view spoiler)

4 Stars!

They didn't tell him he was adopted but that wasn't reason enough to be an ass. He could be angry but when he started saying how he knew something because tehre wasn't a connection---That's when he lost me.

Lots of families are connected by other means, not blood. He never once said they treated him badly. He should man up and say he wanted a business of his own making, and not to follow the families footsteps. HE should have said he was tired of Issac instead of using the "lie" as his excuse.
He is so self centered.

I want to adopt, but I am afraid of the Keisha Cole effect. AFter raising a kid, they will go seeking their adoptive parents and forget you were the one who hugged them when they fell of the bike, you missed work because they had strep etc.

I am afraid if you discipline a kid, they will say "well, she spanked/grounded me because I am not really her bio kid etc"
