Drunk in Love: A Wedding Anthology of Sweet and Steamy Romantic Short Stories
Drunk in Love: A Wedding Anthology of Sweet and Steamy Romantic Short Stories - Kristen Luciani,A.D. Justice,A.M. Johnson,Amy Daws,Carey Heywood,Elle Brooks,Isabelle Richards,J.D. Hollyfield,Jeannine Collette,Kandi Steiner,Kathryn Andrews,Katy Regnery,Liv Morris,Mariah Dietz,M.D. Saperstein,Meghan Quinn,Melissa Collins,Ryan Ringbloom
By Tomorrow by Katy Regnery - Reading a book by Katy Regnery feels like looking into her soul. Her characters are reflective, identifiable and lovable as a whole. The characters are pure, the writing is deeply moving and the romance is off the charts, despite it's simplicity. With Jamie and Claire, Ms. Regnery made a statement. By Tomorrow proves that it isn't the length of the story but, the emotion that goes into, that makes the journey memorable. My favorite story to date.

Drunk Driving Champion
Drunk Driving Champion - Eric Hendrixson Drunk Driving Champion - Eric Hendrixson A hundred drunken drivers gather in Washington DC for a cross country race. With a million dollars and a new liver hanging in the balance, who will claim the prize? Will it be Will, the wine enthusiast with a daughter in the hospital? Or two second string racers looking to make names for themselves? Or a couple of Russian suits? Or those darn frat boys looking to save their frat house?

In that far gone year 2010, Eric Hendrixson wrote [b:Bucket of Face|9560650|Bucket of Face|Eric Hendrixson|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347952547s/9560650.jpg|14443834] as part of the New Bizarro Author Series. When he told me he had a new book ready, I was all revved up and ready to go.

Drunk Driving Champion is a spoof/homage to car movies like Cannonball Run and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. True to the Bizarro genre, it also features cars that can only be started while the driver is drunk, a recently unfrozen 1930's starlet named Dottie and the equally-thawed 1930's super hero, Captain Video. Hey, super heroes were dropping into the North Atlantic all the time in the 30's and 40's.

The diverse group of contestants that survived the initial 60+ car pileup kept the book moving. The time and space-warping GPS units were a nice touch. You never can trust those assholes when you need them.

While I was pretty sure I knew how the race was going to turn out, Hendrixson had me doubting myself a few times, that magnificent bearded bastard! It's hard to sustain humor, especially that of the Bizarro flavor, for an entire book but Eric Hendrixson did a great job of it. There were many quotable lines but I was too busy to write them down and not drunk as some people would allege.

If you only read one book featuring a drunken cross country race in 2016, make sure it's Drunk Driving Champion by Eric Hendrixson. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

How Did She Not Die From Alcohol Poisoning ?
Broken Juliet - Leisa Rayven

This was a 4 star listen for me except for the excessive drinking, it dragged it down to -three. The first half + of the story she was drinking, grabbing a drink, wanting a drink, being drunk, sick drunk... ARGUGH ! I understand she was messed up in the head/heart but it consumed the pages to the point I was getting a contact high. I would have liked to hear about it less and more about her time with Tristan or even more wallowing, anything.

Sadly what I got out the the first 5-65% was just "Forget this thinking I'm getting drunk" Boring !!

They had a ton of damage to repair, scar tissue to remove and trust to build. This all happened in the last 1/4 of the book which was fabulous. I loved the choices they made, they were intelligent, respectful and not buried in alcohol. The relationship, and the characters finally became more. The ending was not a shock but I was shocked at how they got there. The maturity level jumped.
Can you tell I'm not fond of the drink till drunk solution to life in my entertainment ? It doesn't work and it to glorified by authors/media/social circles far too many times. I have a personal issue with this common acceptance alcohol abuse. Two times I've been nearly killed by drunk drivers and 4 times so far I've lost friends to alcohol stupidity. Yeh I am riding my high horse, perhaps but this is my opinion.

The Scorch Trials
The Scorch Trials - James Dashner

I am really enjoying this serie, it is getting intense...

I really can't remember what was waiting but it was different and I like it; I think that is something that makes it so brilliant! You can't imagine what's gonna happen next.


Something I love was how the play with their mines. Like Thomas, in the beginning it is too loving and caring, but in the end that is starting to disappear. You can feel how he is trying to fight it (all that pain, and hate), and still trying to be positive and keep some hope.
And I dont know if is the first book or just me but something tells me no to trust in girls!
Brenda is like super weird... And lets not talk about Teresa, I never like her, but she really is the chaos!!


Another thing I really like was the post- apocalyptic city, it's the only thing that have sense, talking about pollution in the present.


The writing is super fresh and easy. So perfect for young adults, I suppose.


I think I found the perfect metaphor to explain how i feel while reading this serie... it is like being drunk!
Hahahahahahahahaha


You can see what it is happening, hear it, feel it but you cant fully understand it, and you can never be sure if it is really happening...

I only expect the last book no to be the hangover XD


(Actually I have never being drunk, but i imagine it must be something like that.)

An Unexpected Gem
Where I End and You Begin - Andra Brynn

What a shocker.I did not expect to enjoy this, it's a NA, which I've had poor luck with. I was ready to quit at 10%. I hated the MC Bianca, and her drunk, sexed up, sluty life style. She is everything I can't stand in young women. I know that is harsh and judgmental , I feel mean. She is hard to understand at first she comes off and this total party girl lost in her bottle of anything with alcohol. I saw something, a question not answered. Why was she on this path of utter destruction ?

The author did a fabulous job of making me want the answers without sticking the question right in my face. Her story slowly unwinds just a bit at a time, it's so well done you don't even know you're being hooked. I had to follow the tale, then I started to feel for her, hate, disgust, pity and finally hope. She did the same with the male MC, while he was likable in the beginning I didn't know where he from coming from till almost the end. What a weaver of words Ms Brynn is.

The story was kind of silly in my humble opinion, girl on path of destruction meets man that saves her from herself and changes his life forever. There is a smack you upside the head revelation about Daniel that I never saw coming.This changed the whole view of the characters. Finally an author who understands that, such a big revelation would change attitudes. The end, I saw coming from the 50% point in the book but ti wasn't about the end it was about the journey of these two. Life's pain sticks, alters and doesn't just disappear.

Excellent character development, great pacing, and suspense.

I loved the writing and can't wait for more from Ms. Brynn
