Hot Cover Monday : Once upon a sure thing by Lauren Blakely

It’s so easy being best friends with a gorgeous, talented, charming guy. Said no woman ever. Except me. My friendship with Miller is a sure thing — he’s my plus one, my emergency contact, and my shoulder to lean on. He’s also been by my side helping me raise one helluva awesome kid who’s the center of my world. Nothing will change our easy breezy friendship.

Trouble is, our sizzling chemistry in the recording studio is getting harder to ignore, no matter how risky it might be. *** Sing sexy songs with the woman you’ve been lusting after? Get up close and personal as you croon to the woman you’ve wanted for years? Piece of cake. NOT. Performing with the sweet, sassy and insanely wonderful Ally is like one gigantic obstacle course of challenges for my libido. And my libido is one sexy love song away from kissing her senseless and taking her home…. Keep Reading »

Random Musings : The Blogging Blues ….

Random Musings : The Blogging Blues ….

Well, as you can see, I have the blogging blues. It may just be the blues … not really sure. I have read a bucket load of books (I have so many reviews half started) but no reviews have been completed. In fact, I’ve been writing the review for Here Kitty, Kitty for over a week and I am completely stuck although I’ve read it a million times.     I am hoping that my week of great reading (it was ACE!) will kick start my reviewing again. I read the new Kate Daniel’s book, the new Tessa Dare and a reread of a Penny Reid and they were all fabulous. I recommend the Tessa Dare to everyone – it is hilarious and charming! So, this really is my explanation and, I suppose, my apology. I will attempt to do more than my memes this week, I promise.
