Review: A Lot Like Love (FBI/US Attorney #2) by Julie James  *Light Spoilers*

Review: A Lot Like Love (FBI/US Attorney #2) by Julie James *Light Spoilers*

The Julie James FBI/US Attorney series glomming continues! This one was good. I enjoyed it but not as much as books #1 and #5. It was good. Not great but good. Of course, some of my trepidation maybe related to the fact that I dislike deception in Romance books. I… Read more »

Recipe for Thanksgiving Dinner: Start with sixty-two year old politically incorrect, chain-smoking, hard-cussing curmudgeon. Add fifty-nine year old sexually-repressed know-it-all in pearls. Throw in a beer can-turkey, a battle for horticultural supremacy, and nudist next-door neighbor. Serve on paper plates, garnished with garden gnome. Tastes like happily ever after.

Review: Assassin’s Apprentice (Farseer Trilogy #1) by Robin Hobb *Spoilers*

This is another book I am having a hard time reviewing. There is a lot I like about this book. Fitz is a very engrossing character and the magical skills that he has are extremely interesting. Hobb seems to focus mainly on character development in this book. The book revolves… Read more »

Review: Strong Curves: A Woman’s Guide to Building a Better Butt and Body by Bret Contreras & Kellie Davis

Note: I really feel conflicted about this book/program so I’ve sat on this review for over a month. I’ve been weight lifting (dumbbells, kettlebells and barbell) for a little under a year. At the time I started using the program in this book, my workouts consisted of a “body split.*”… Read more »

Review: Lumberjack In Love (Lumberjack in Love #1) by Penny Watson

This is a rather cute story! I wasn’t in love with it – it was a little light and sweet for my tastes – but that could be because I’ve been reading crack-like crazy books lately and my taste-buds could be damaged. I enjoyed the two main characters but I… Read more »
