Quick Steamy Read
Cowboy's Barmaid: A Small Town Military ... Cowboy's Barmaid: A Small Town Military Romance (Lucky Flats Ranchers Book 2) - Piper Sullivan

Cowboy's Barmaid by Piper Sullivan is an entertaining quick read, the perfect choice for readers that like their books steamy but have limited time for reading.  Jack and Sierra's story is loaded with drama, humor and smokin' hot sex.  I especially enjoyed the characters in this book.  Included in the book is a sneak peek and multiple other short stories.  I enjoyed reading Cowboy's Barmaid and look forward to my next read by Piper Sullivan.

Fliers Review
Fliers: 20 Small Posters with Big Thoughts - Nathaniel Russell

Some people can look at a piece of toast and see Jesus. Or perhaps they find a Mother Teresa-shaped potato chip. Then you have people who cannot live without memes: dank memes, shit posting, pop culture reflection, social media masturbation, and so on. 

 

If you're either of these types of people, you'll like this silly little book. I honestly can't believe it's a thing that exists, but hey, a fool and his dollar are easily separated. Not this fool, tho, because I was given a copy of this "book" by the publisher in return for this review.

 

Is a book of fliers wrapped in a dust jacket that moonlihgts as a telephone pole worth $12.99 plus tax? Who's to say? Not this guy. One man's trash is another man's treasure, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and yeah, there you go. It's whatever. 

 

Buy it and keep it out in the open so your friends can judge your life choices. But let's be real. If you've purchased this book you don't have a life. Nor do you have friends or make choices beyond whether or not to wear clean underwear today. So maybe use the fliers inside as Kleenex to wipe away the crushing depression and ease the pain of your anxiety-induced seclusion?

 

Eat mor chikin.

Fliers
Fliers: 20 Small Posters with Big Thoughts - Nathaniel Russell

I enjoyed this. The idea behind it is a good one. Each addition is not what it initially seems at first glance, hidden alternative messages aol with multiple tranlations and interpretations. 

I do feel here needed to be more content. Maybe a small description of each flyer ncluded giving the .eaning the author wished to convey. I do give props for the creativity, and I feel there are those out there who would get a lot more out of this then I.

 

AUTHOR:

 

NATHANIEL RUSSELL was born and raised in Indiana. After college, Russell spent several years in the San Francisco Bay Area making posters, record covers, and woodcuts. He returned to his home city of Indianapolis and now spends his time creating drawings, fake fliers, bad sculptures, wood shapes, and music.

Not exactly what I wanted
Find the Good - Heather Lende

I went into Find the Good: Unexpected Life Lessons From a Small-Town Obituary Writer by Heather Lende with a lot of perhaps too many expectations. I anticipated (and hoped for) humor of the macabre variety. Find the Good is a book of anecdotal advice from someone who regular faces death head on...or at least experiences it alongside those left behind. From the book's blurb, I thought that this was going to be a look at death with a light touch because how else can one continually run up against death and retain their positive outlook on life? I guess in a way Lende does explore the way she has had to structure her life so that she can continue to be a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen when the grief overflows. As an obituary writer in a small town, most of the notices that she has had to write were about people that she knew if not intimately then by sight. That takes a toll on a person and also fosters an environment for emotional and spiritual growth.  There are some good, positive points made but in my opinion not enough to warrant an entire book. It would have made a good article or think piece. There's very little I can say about this one other than it didn't really live up to my expectations or blow me away. It would probably work well on a short train ride or as a beach read. It's a 3/10 for me, guys.

Fly Me to the Moon
Fly Me to the Moon: A Small Town Contemporary Romance Novella - Mindy Klasky
Lexi was burned as a child and has a fear of fire. She hides her burns and is limited due to her fear (she doesn't cook on her gas stove). She owns an ornament store. Finn was in military and now out, struggled with what to do next. He has PTSD and deals with it by drinking. He came into town with goal of meeting the parents of a deceased military friend. 
Finn and Lexi meet when he comes into her store and literally stumbles into a tree breaking all the ornaments on it. Having no money, they agree that he will work off the money owed over the next month. 
I liked both characters. Both were perfect for the other in that they each had their own scars. In meeting and developing a relationship that grew, both were able to confront their issues and work on them.
