TBR Thursday
Shark Drunk: The Art of Catching a Large Shark from a Tiny Rubber Dinghy in a Big Ocean - Morten A. Strøksnes
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader - C.S. Lewis,Pauline Baynes
The Reader - Traci Chee
The Waste Lands - Stephen King,Ned Dameron


I continue to poke along at The Mysteries of Udolpho, my last remaining Halloween selection.  I keep getting side-tracked, reading things that are due at the library before it.  As a result, I started Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince last night--there are 12 people in line behind me waiting for it.


Then I can settle down and read as the spirit moves me.  Both The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Reader have appeared in a TBR Thursday post before, but I actually hope to have time to get to them this week.


I'm also looking forward to getting back to my Science Fiction & Fantasy project, as I finish Black Sun Rising and then move on to Stephen King's The Waste Lands.


In other news, I have Friday off work and I'm headed out to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology tomorrow for a lecture by a visiting Australian paleontologist.  One of my friends is coming along--we're going to attend the lecture, go out for lunch, and perhaps look for birds along the route to Drumheller.


Have an excellent weekend of reading and adventures, friends!

Drunk Dial - Penelope Ward 2.5 stars

Landon: By the way, if there was an award for the best ass on the planet, I think you'd win.

Rana: Thank you.

Landon: The Ass-cars, instead of the Oscars. You'd win best leading ass-tress.

Rana: "I'd like to thank the Ass-cademy..."

The Drunk Email
The Drunk Email - Sadie Sins The Drunk Email - Sadie Sins OK... this short story or novella (I can never figure out how many words or pages make it one or the other) was scorching hot. Don't kill me but I always wanted to have a gay brother or even a gay identical twin brother. Just a fantasy... but this book push all my buttons and I loved it. Just soooooo hot, hot, hot, hot!

Drunk on You
Drunk on You - Harper Sloan Drunk on You - Harper Sloan

Drunk on You is part smoking hot Dom/sub story, part fake relationship romance. Shane is a former stripper who now owns a bar with his friend, Nate. Dirty Dog (the bar) is one of the  most popular bars in town and that is due partly to the hottie bartends (with Nate and Shane occasionally) dancing on the bar top! Shane feels that he can't really have a relationship because no woman would be okay with his job, even though he doesn't take his clothes off. His ex, Lacey, didn't seem to mind...but she was sleeping with another woman! Now that she realizes her mistake, she is desperate to get Shane to take her back.

Nikki is a 2nd grade teacher who just got out of a terrible relationship with a man who was somewhat verbally abusive. She caught him cheating on her and ended the relationship. Months later he has decided he wants her back and begins what can only be labeled stalking behavior. Nikki makes it clear she isn't interested but he is persistent. So, her idea to handle it? Start a fake relationship with Shane. Well, one that includes very non-fake sex.

Nikki is a study in contradictions. An adorable 2nd grade teacher by day, and a woman who sends naked pics by night. Once she decides she need to actually MOVE ON from her ex, she decides to act on her attraction to Shane. Shane makes it VERY clear that she can't fall for him and this is sex only. There is some drama from both exes but it wasn't as crazy as I expected. There is some drama between Shane and Nikki as they muck their way through whatever it is they have. I really felt for Nikki as a fellow educator in a private school. Those morality clauses are for real and its no joke. So, when you read it, know that YES that is exactly how it works. Crappy? Sure, but you agree to the clause when you take the job. The only other option is taking a public school job.

Personally, I have never been a fan of the BDSM stuff. While this book isn't excessive, it wasn't my thing. Aside from that, I enjoyed the story but I really enjoyed seeing Nate and Ember again!

  • POV: 1st
  • Tears: no
  • Trope: fake relationship
  • Triggers: none
  • Series/Standalone: stand alone within an interconnected series
  • Cliffhanger: no
  • HEA: yes, but it kind of felt more like an HFN than a real HEA

Disorderly Conduct from Tessa Bailey, Demolished by Cathryn Fox, The Dirty Money series by Lisa Renee Jones...then you will probably like Drunk on You!

Drunk Dial
Drunk Dial - Penelope Ward I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

My headspace when starting this book was a little light-hearted. I mean, "Drunk Dial" means instant hilarity, right? And while there is a LOT of humor in this story, the thing that knocked me back into the dirt was the utter rawness. To quote [b:Illidan|26721433|Illidan (World of Warcraft, #14)|William King|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1446533087s/26721433.jpg|46751663], I was not prepared.

Both of our main characters are deeply flawed people. Rana and Landon knew each other in their early teens, then lost touch for 13 years when Rana's family moved away. She never forgot him, and one night after a particularly trying day, she finds his number and drunk dials him.

Rana is immediately mortified - after her initial verbal diarrhea that is, and they end up having a short, but meaningful conversation. Turns out Landon never forgot her either. The problem is that they live hundreds of miles apart, so the phone is their only connection present-day.

Landon and Rana start an amazing friendship via text & phone calls, which escalates when Rana gets some alarming news. They end up in the same place at the same time, and it means some things that each of them has been hiding from one another come to light - literally. (No OW/OM cheating btw)

At first they can only be together in person for a short time, and it's problematic. They're becoming more and more attached to each other. But there are things that tie them to their homes. Things that seem important to their lives.

But, as with most stories, the truth will out, and that truth changes everything.

Sometimes life has to throw you a curve ball in order to make you see that you can hit what comes at you. Both Rana and Landon find this out in Drunk Dial, and I'm left with a pile of soggy tissues.

I don't want to say any more, lest I give away any of the plot points, but I'll say that Rana is brave, goofy, funny, charming, beautiful, and loving. Landon is chivalrous, empathetic, gorgeous, fun-loving, open-hearted, and giving. And the book is sometimes deep, sometimes hilarious, sometimes frustrating, and all the time amazing.

I really loved it. Five "I want his banana Food Truck" stars.
