Virtually Screwed - Isla Olsen

This is book #2, in the fabulous Love & Lick series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel, but I would hate for you to miss out.  I recommend reading this series in order.


Owen has been attracted to his brother's best friend for some time.  Who wouldn't find those sexy abs hot?  Since he only dates women, it was never an issue.  Then he finds  himself excited about someone he met on a game platform.  Until he finds out who he is.....


Blake has found someone on a game that he plays.  Someone he can truly talk to.  He finds that a rarity these days.  When things change to the sexy, he finds himself turned on to the point of the ridiculous.  Then he finds out who it is he has been "sexting" with.


Such an incredible story.  I was literally hooked right from the very first chapter.  The characters are so very sexy.  So very meant to be.  The author has made such an amazing series.  This is a good addition to it.  I cannot wait for the next installment.  I am seriously addicted.  This is such a great read.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!



***I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Virtually Perfect by Paige Roberts
Virtually Perfect - Paige Roberts,Marguerite Gavin

I add the randomist of books to my Overdrive queue. This is another that I added for whatever reason and by the time it came around to me I had no idea why I requested it. Sometimes it works out, other times notsomuch. This was one of the notsomuch times.


Lizzie was once a Food Network star but was fired for some reason I don’t think they ever revealed. I think I would've caught that because I was hoping it was embarrassing but I could’ve missed it because I might’ve dozed off a time or two. She’s since been making a living taking whatever job comes her way, mostly cooking for rich people. When she’s offered a full time gig cooking for a wealthy family at their luxurious summer home at the beach she takes it.


What follows is a modern day chick lit story of a woman who puts up with all sorts of crap to keep her job which is something most of us can probably relate to. We do need to eat and sometimes it pays to keep your big mouth shut. But this changes a little later in the story when she begins to make a few unprofessional moves and remarks that weren’t at all thought through. I mean I get it, a girl can only take so much, but it’s never a good idea to talk crap about the family who pays you to another family member that you barely know just because you think he’s the black sheep of the family. Even I know that! During the daily dramas that enfold she’s also attempting to patch things up with a friend she left behind for fame (snooze) and learns her mother has been hiding a big secret which she might’ve discovered sooner if she’d tried harder to get in touch with her mom.


This book gets mostly good reviews so perhaps it just wasn’t a story meant for me. I thought it might be light and entertaining and though it is very descriptive with the food and I enjoyed that bit, it started to aggravate me midway and never recovered. The plot was nothing special, nothing new, nothing that wasn’t predictable and basically bored me. None of the characters were all that likable, even Lizzy. The wealthy socialite who NEVER shuts up and all but one of her family members and friends were horrible people who the reader gets to spend way too much with. Imagine being stuck in a room with no hope of escape with loud, drunk, shallow, wealthy people who think of no one but themselves and their pleasure. I’d rather have toothpicks jammed under my nails than suffer through that. And their presence makes up much of this story. That’s not my idea of a good time but who knows maybe it’s yours?


On the positive side, the narrator has one of those musical and lively voices that’ll keep you going even when you know you should probably quit. Yep, it’s her fault not mine that I did not DNF.


This one gets a two because if I’m being honest I just did not like it very much.

Love Virtually
Love Virtually - Daniel Glattauer i was reading this while i was waiting for my zipped files to be extracted(for work) and i didn't expect to finish this immediately. the concept of book is exchange of emails between Emmi and Leo which happens after a misleading email from Emmi then eventually started a little 'something' between them. i didn't expect that ending tho. it hurts me a little and it made me feel sad. but given their life circumstances, i also didn't expect a happy ending for both of them.

Virtually Scared To Death
Virtually Scared To Death - Gillian Larkin I received a free kindle copy of Virtually Scared To Death (Julia Blake Cozy Mystery Book 1) by Gillian Larkin from Amazon for fair review. I gave it four stars.

Julia Blake runs her own cleaning service. One of her clients, Mark Castle is a video game designer. He shares the one he's working on with her to see whether she liked it. Before she receives it, she found Mark lying on the floor dead with an awful expression on his face. The week prior he had asked her if she'd ever seen or heard ghosts.

As a friend as well as a cleaning lady, she wants to help find out what happened to Mark. One of the investigators suspects her because she had ready access to his apartment. Will she be arrested? Can she solve what they now know was a murder? Can she solve it before the murderer attempts to kill her?

This is a short one, but it did keep my attention. That's why it received four stars.
