Have Mercy (Harlequin Blaze #398) -

Cover commentary - H is in 30s, h in late 20s. Cover appears to be a high school cheerleader and some kid who's having difficulty growing proper facial hair.

 

It had its moments but...

 

There was the whole inconsistency of the h's characterization - she's written as socially awkward in the beginning. Not shy, not suspicious; socially awkward. And yet, later she's acting perfectly normal.

 

The H is a reformed grifter who lies through his teeth to the h while getting into her pants.

His grandmother is out for revenge as some distant cousins who'd sent her late husband to prison are in the process of pulling a con.

 

It is a comedy of errors featuring the improbability of a heroine living in the closet of a crack house, having time to keep her hedge trimmed, and bouncing between being unable to talk to people and acting the consummate professional, a gypsy who broke character and abandoned his family, and of course, an old bat who resents the hell out of him going legit and while she doesn't want him to rot in prison, almost scorns his desire to avoid legal issues.

 

I found some of it funny, the language a bit crude for a harlequin, and well... I mostly finished it because I didn't really want to just DNF it but at the same time, I didn't want to linger - there are better books out there.

Elastic Heart by Sincestiel
Elastic Heart - Sincestiel

Sam initially fails to tell Dean they are related upon falling in love with his half brother. A well written, highly introspective fanfic.

“Tonight we can have it all, remember? So, just for a little while, let me love you. And then, tomorrow, we can be whatever you need for us to be.”

At this point, however, I cannot take any more and I need to be in control. I roll her off me and at the same time position myself on top of her. She’s lying on the bed underneath me looking at me with so much hunger in her eyes. I feel so much love for her, I can no longer hold it back. She needs to know. I lean down close to her and whisper in her ear, “I love you.” I kiss her softly on her neck as my cock slides slowly into her sweet pussy. I move as slowly as I can, prolonging this moment. I want to savor every inch as I push into her. We aren’t fucking. This is no longer about getting laid or having to have her. We are doing something that I’ve never done before. We are making love and it feels amazing. She is so fucking tight and her pussy clamps onto my dick like a vice. I feel as if I am going to explode. I have to stop. I draw out of her slowly and then wait before I slide back in. Holy fuck, it just gets better. Carefully, I push into her again, trying desperately to keep control of my movements. I continue this several times and I swear she clenches my dick tighter each time. I’m losing control and I think she is too.
 

“Tell me. Tell me what I need to hear.”

 

Without hesitation or questioning what it is that I need to hear, she responds, “I love you.” I move my fingers over her clit. She is soaking wet around my cock and my fingers. I’m about to come, but I need her to ride this out with me. “Give it to me sweetheart, give me all you got.” With my words she detonates beneath me as I watch her lose herself to me. Seeing her orgasm is my undoing and I take my release with her as we ride out our passion together. After, she is snuggled up against me tracing the tat on my chest. She loves that dragon for some reason, I’m not sure why.

 

“You’re not staying, are you?” She asks quietly.

 

I don’t say anything for a minute and then, “No baby, I can’t”

 

She stops tracing my tat and is silent for a while. Then she asks, “Why did you come back then?”

Father On The Brink - Elizabeth Bevarly

Cover commentary - is it just me or does he look like he's about to barf in her ear?

The epilogue was the best part of this one. It was pretty funny.

 

So the H, paramedic, working a blizzard, gets misdirected to a house where he finds a woman in labor rather than an elderly kidney patient. The woman has just discovered her marriage is a fake, and was in the process of bolting when her water broke.

 

She lists him as the father on the birth certificate...and bolts.

 

Shows up on his doorstep 2 months later, and finally tells him. Sperm donor tracks her down. She bolts again. H tracks her down, and tells her what he found about sperm donor. Convinces her he's serious about the whole marriage and family thing. Epilogue is 13 years later.

Book Review : Talking as fast as I can Lauren Graham
Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between) - Lauren Graham,Lauren Graham

June 26-27

In her first work of nonfiction, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood recounts her experiences on Gilmore Girls - the first and second times - and shares stories about life, love, and working in Hollywood. This collection of essays is written in the intimate, hilarious, and down-to-earth voice that made her novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe, a New York Times best seller.
"This book contains some stories from my life: the awkward growing up years, the confusing dating years, the fulfilling working years, and what it was like to be asked to play one of my favorite characters again. You probably think I'm talking about my incredible achievement as Dolly in Hello, Dolly! as a Langley High School junior, a performance my dad called 'you're so much taller than the other kids.' But no! I'm talking about Lorelai Gilmore, who, back in 2008, I wasn't sure I'd ever see again. Also included: tales of living on a houseboat, meeting guys at awards shows, and that time I was asked to be a butt model. A hint: all three made me seasick.

Review : I loved this audio cause I'm a big gilmore girls fan I love Lauren's writing and her audiobook was awesome I loved hearing about her and her getting onto Gilmore girls and her stories in acting and her family life . And it was interesting to hear about her life and I loved when she talked about Gilmore girls a year in the life I cried I highly recommend this book .

Quotes:
But life doesn’t often spell things out for you or give you what you want exactly when you want it, otherwise it wouldn’t be called life, it would be called vending machine.


“Because who wants to Fast Forward anyway? You might miss some of the good parts
