Nothing makes for a better buddy read than a 'Psycho Romeo'...or in plain English...
Psycho Romeo - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

a bat-sh*t crazy stalker. 

If you love Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott's 'Unbreakable Bonds' series than this is the perfect way to continue that love affair. 'Psycho Romeo' is the first book in 'Ward Security' the spin-off series to 'Unbreakable Bonds'. Rowan Ward is the owner of 'Ward Securities' and one of the original group of four friends from 'Unbreakable Bonds' giving the reader the opportunity to get glimpses into the ongoing lives of the men from 'Unbreakable Bonds' and a whole new collection of fascinating men.

We were originally introduced to both of the MCs in 'Psycho Romeo' in earlier books. Geoffrey Ralse is rich and the life of the party according to his social media accounts. But he's so much more than he appears to be and the only person who seems to truly see this is his brother and Protective Agent Sven Larsen, whom we also met in the original series. But Sven's got his own issues and he's determined to keep his distance from Geoffrey. Which is a lot easier to do when his only contact is teaching Geoffrey self defense classes...it's when Geoffrey gets a stalker and hires Ward Security for protection. Insisting on Sven as his body that Sven's defenses begin to crumble.

While 'Psycho Romeo' was an awesome read in and of itself, I have to say sharing this reading experience with my reading buddy besties...Christelle, Josy, Simone and having the lovely Jan jump on board just made the story a whole lot more fun. 

The romance between Geoffrey and Sven for me was simply adorable and sweet. I loved these two as a couple they were incredibly sweet together and loved the interaction between them and how each man so readily came to the other's defense...it was just sweet, sweet, sweet!...and hot, did I mention these two men are scorching HOT!!!

As for the mystery...it had it's good points and was definitely the high-light of much discussion during our buddy read. While there may have been some weak points to this part of the story and not all of it sat well with everyone in our group for different reasons...some of us may have pegged who the stalker was a little early in the story. I care not I still enjoyed it and overall it added interest and was the vehicle that moved Geoffrey and Sven into close proximity allowing their relationship to progress.

This was an awesome start to this spin-off series and I'm looking forward to seeing what come next...I know it won't be Royce but I've got my Buddy Read Besties to keep me company while we read whatever comes next and wait for Royce. 

Once again my friends thanks for a good time and I'm definitely looking forward to whatever comes next.

Good But Not As Good as the Anime
Psycho Pass: Inspector Shinya Kogami Volume 1 - Midori Gotu,Natsuo Sai

Great illustrations, easy to read emotions.
Interesting to see the prequel, and the back story. I found some of the dialog hard to figure out who was saying what a few times. I prefer the anime to the manga myself it just didn't have the same fun level.

Rose Madder
Rose Madder - Stephen King

I´m really Rosie

And I´m Rosie Real

You better believe me

Because I´m a great big deal.

-Maurice Sendak

 

This is the first Stephen King book I´ve read. I don´t usually read horror and tend to only read realistic fiction. I told my husband about Halloween Bingo and asked him to recommend some of his books for a few squares - something not to scary for Me.  He knows me very well.  He recommended this book for Genre: Horror.  I was skeptical but I´m very glad I did read it. This story is amazing and I tore through it quickly. Stephen King took an idea that is very real for a lot of people, being trapped in an abusive relationship, and he crafted that idea into a freaky story that you don´t just read but absorb. It isn´t just a story, it is something to mentally chew on. It is full of symbolism and interesting little connections. It does have a lot of bad language so this book isn´t for everyone. 

The story is told from two different points of view, Rosie´s and Norman. As the book goes on he becomes obsessed with finding her and slips more and more away from reality, becoming a murderous monster.

The story starts with Rosie sitting on the floor in the corner of their living room losing her baby. Her abusive husband (understatement of the year) has beaten her, punching her in the stomach several times. He calls 911 but then he moves her to the bottom of the stairs and tells her what to say when they arrive. If she doesn´t say what she is supposed to he will kill her. She does not doubt that for a minute either. She can´t tell anyone what really happened anyway because they wouldn´t believe her. Her husband is a cop and cops back each other up. He´s part of a brotherhood and he´s a detective.  Finding people is what he does.

 

Rosie stays with him several more years until one day she notices a single drop of blood on the sheet by her pillow. He punched her in the nose the night before and although she thought the bleeding had stopped that one drop had seeped out during the night. She had gone numb and was just living from moment to moment but this single drop of blood was pulling her back. She finally got the nerve up to run out the door. She takes his ATM card and uses it to get some money to help her get away. She is terrified because she knows he will come for her and he will kill her.

The Day My Butt Went Psycho - Andy Griffiths,Miles Thompson

I remember trying to read the sequel to this book, [book:Zombie Butts From Uranus|903304], in middle school and not being able to get through it. I think I must have been a very literal child, because I just could not get over many of the descriptions, such as a butt having arms and legs and detaching itself from a human.

However, since then I have watched the TV adaptation of the books on Netflix. Either I have grown less literal as an adult or having seen the cartoon representation, I have an easier time picturing the characters. Either way I was able to get through this book and loved it.

I'll at admit, at times it is downright disgusting. But it never stops being amazing. Giant maggots, buttcanoes, and stink tornadoes, this is one of the grossest things I have ever read and I really enjoyed it.

The descriptions are very cartoonish and unrealistic, but very creative and funny. I really enjoyed all of the adventures Zack went on. This book is definitely unlike anything I have read before and it is worth the read.

For those who like silly and disgusting stories, give this book a try.

I can't wait to read the sequel.
