Well that was sweet...
Finding Mr. Wrong - Charlie Cochet,Andrew McFerrin

Matthew Hart is the heir to Hart & Home Furniture he's had a good life raised by a loving and doting father after his mother passed away he grew up not wanting for material things or for love. 


Jax Foster was Matthew's friend and his first love until he disappeared without a word one day without so much as a by your leave for Matthew. Matthew was heartbroken...Jax had been his world...his best friend, his first love, everything a young man of 15 could have ever thought he'd want.


When Matthew has an allergic reaction to peanut oil that lands him in the hospital...because his epi pen magically disappeared he takes stock of his life and realizes that he loves his friends, his dad, his job but it's not enough. He wants something more and that's when Matthew and his PA and good friend Adam make a list so that Adam can find him, his Mr. Right.


It's when Adam gets a little help from Matthew's father that things really get out of hand because suddenly not only is Jax Foster back in town but when Matthew gets sent to meet with the contractor for a piece commissioned by one of Hart & Home's biggest clients the last thing Matthew expects is to come face to face with the person who broke his heart all those years ago.


I enjoyed this story it was sweet and watching Matthew and Jax get reacquainted with each other as Matthew resist letting Jax explain what happened all those years ago that caused him to disappear...events that could repeat themselves thanks to meddling family on both sides...family who's intentions are less than honorable.


I was a bit frustrated by Jax's father but in spite of that I loved that Jax stuck by his dad and continued to see the good in  him. He wasn't a bad man more a case of a good man making bad choices and Jax was able to see this which also speaks to the type of person that Jax was. Unfortunately the same can't be said for Matthew's cousin and his biotch of a wife...like seriously somebody get that woman a Prozac or two...maybe some Zoloft? Because damn she's got issues...serious, issues.


I really liked Matthew and Jax and as a couple they worked for me and while Matthew was initially resistant to resuming any kind of relationship with Jax I liked that it didn't become a drawn out and protracted state of affairs and we got to see Matthew and Jax re-ignite the love they had for each other a love that has stayed with both of them over the years just waiting for a chance to once again burn brightly.


As much as I liked Matthew and Jax and as steamy hot as things were between them.  What I'd really love would be Adam's story...well, actually I'd like to see a story about Adam and Rai. Adam is feisty and I'm pretty sure that Rai would make a good tree for him to climb.


I'm a fan of Charlie Cochet's writing and Andrew McFerrin has done a wonderful job of bringing her words to life and giving voice to these characters. 'Finding Mr. Wrong' was a fun, short, low angst story about first loves, second chances and happily ever afters.



An audio book of 'Finding Mr. Wrong' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Gunnerkrigg Court 2
Gunnerkrigg Court, Vol. 2: Research - Thomas Siddell

Love the first chapter (15), it’s a hoot. I like how Kat tends to be hot for people. still loving this series though some of the ghost issues can get a little confusing.Not much else to say on this reread. 5 stars, still love it.

Carrie - Stephen King

Generally speaking, I really enjoy King's writing. So far, I have read a collection of short stories, Cujo and The cell (which I didn't finish as it was too bloody for my taste back then)


So..Carrie.I haven't seen any of the films based on this one and I wasn't familiar with the story before stumbling on the trailer of the latest reboot. Instead of watching the film, I decided to read the book as I am always one of the annoying people that say: "the book is always better".


Carrie is a very shy girl that gets bullied by her classmates and finally she snaps. Supernatural elements are also featured in the story. One other interesting character is her mother, who is a religious nutter.


I especially liked the way it was written as if it was a research project of some kind on the events of a specific night. It added a nice atmospheric touch of reality.

I finished reading this on a very bumpy airplane flight, a factor that made me extra jumpy at specific scenes.


Have any of you watched the films? Do you recommend them? As I read this in 2013, I don't remember many details (something that usually makes me draw inevitable comparisons between film and book).

Do you write notes and leave them on the refrigerator?
Life on the Refrigerator Door - Alice Kuipers

I found the writing style of this one, quite interesting.. The whole thing is narrated through refrigerator notes that mother and daughter leave for each other. You get to learn how their relationship is and what problems they face.

(I don't know about you, but I never communicated with my mother like this. Plus, our refrigerator door isn't magnetic)

Upon finishing this in one sitting, I wasn't very fond of the story, as it added drama just for the shake of drama. It was just too predictable without adding its own flavor.
