Life and such

Buddy the beagle just noticed a diamond shape on the linoleum and is trying to ¨dig it up¨.  The diamonds are all over but he only cares about that one for some reason.  I wish the floor had more texture so he could file down his nails some doing that.  

 

We are getting ready to go on our vacation to California tomorrow night and my husband caught the crud I had.  My son and I both had the stomach flu for a good week.  Yesterday was the first week I´ve been totally better.  My husband is just starting now and going to be stuck on a plane and traveling with that.  I´ll make sure he packs extra underwear and maybe some depends. My husband is going to hang out with us at his mom´s house and then he is going to fly to another city in California where a friend lives and then they are going to drive to Vegas.  I´ll stay with my MIL where I can be more comfortable.  We will have our own fun.  She will probably want to go play some slots there in Cali though and I find that really boring.  You don´t even pull levers anymore, just push the button, spin, bloopidee-bloop, nothing....push the button, spin...etc  I would rather go shopping since they actually have places to shop there.  

 

I´m excited to go though.  I can´t wait to see GREEN TREES and FLOWERS.  My MIL said there are some things blooming in her yard.  

 

My book is not making me happy.  It is in rough shape so if it doesn´t get better I´m tossing it.

Hot Head (Head #1) by Damon Suede 4 Star Review!
Hot Head (Head #1) - Damon Suede

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire...

Since 9/11, Brooklyn firefighter Griff Muir has wrestled with impossible feelings for his best friend and partner at Ladder 181, Dante Anastagio. Unfortunately, Dante is strictly a ladies’ man, and the FDNY isn’t exactly gay-friendly. For ten years, Griff has hidden his heart in a half-life of public heroics and private anguish.

Griff’s caution and Dante’s cockiness make them an unbeatable team. To protect his buddy, there’s nothing Griff wouldn’t do… until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty. And Dante wants them to appear there—together. Griff may have to guard his heart and live out his darkest fantasies on camera. Can he rescue the man he loves without wrecking their careers, their families, or their friendship?

 

Review

 

It is easy to see why this is such a popular romance novel. It has everything. Friends to Lovers, firefighters, ginger hero, hot sexy times, great dialogue, wonderful setting, connection to important history...

 

It is a bit over the top but it is a also grand and passionate and loving. There are several plot turns and some how it remains believable because of the loving connection between our heroes.

 

There are things I wanted more of because we were only in Griff's head and Dante didn't even really talk about his feelings until the end. I love the end of this book and hope some of the secondary characters get a story.

 

Good hot stuff!

Head Coach (Hellions Angels #2) by Lia Riley
Head Coach: Hellions Angels - Lia Riley Head Coach: Hellions Angels - Lia Riley

Lia Riley’s HEAD COACH is top-shelf.  Sports reporter Neve Angel and Hellions’ head coach Tor Gunnar are nemesis.  However, a game of air hockey might change it all.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.  The story takes place in Colorado. 

 

I looked forward to reading Neve’s and Tor’s story ever since book one, MISTER HOCKEY.  The two have an interesting relationship, enemies that are attracted to each other. The plot was clever and believable. There were a lot of interesting twists throughout the story. I liked the wedding aspect of the novel.  I love when Neve went dress shopping.  Kendall was just what she needed.  I thought the traffic app aspect was smart.  The moose was entertaining.

 

Lia Riley does a great job with her character development.  Neve is smart and feisty.  She has some self-esteem issues.  Tor is a good man and father.  He is reasonable. He is usually good at reading people.  I like that Neve and Tor always respected each other.  Both love their jobs and realize that a relationship between the two could cause a conflict of interest. 

 

I like how the story ended.  It felt well concluded.  Because of the tidbits told about Patrick Donnelly that happened in this book, I cannot wait for book three, VIRGIN TERRITORY, to hear his story.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

The Most Dangerous Place...
The Most Dangerous Place on Earth: A Novel - Lindsey Lee Johnson

1. This author has a degree is writing and used the word "gentle" as a verb. He gentled his voice. That's just unacceptable.

 

2. I must be super out of touch because there were teen slang terms in this book I have never heard before like "jaws" and "chag". Wtf do those mean?

 

3. Blatant homophobia. For San Francisco, these kids sure do seem to call everyone a "fag". Again, not cool.

 

4. Wow, this whole book was a giant teen drama trope. Teacher/student screwing; the new, naive teacher that wants to save all her students; suicide; bullies; stoners; out of touch parents. 

 

This book wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything special either. It was mediocre.
