BOOK REVIEW: Sex, Lies and Online Dating

60219I really enjoyed this Book! It was so much fun! And very sexy too! with a whole lot of funny thrown in! This book is part of a series and I’m looking forward to reading the other ones! This is a new author for me – I recently read See Jane Score and I loved that too. I think fans of Sophie Kinsella should really give Rachel Gibson a try! She’s worth it!

4.5 stars!!

From Goodreads:


What is it about men anyway? Bad cars, bad jobs, even bad teeth — nothing convinces them that they can’t snare a Size Two Babe with a D-cup chest. And after way too many internet dates with men named “luvstick” and “bigdaddy182,” Lucy Rothschild should know.


But sitting across from her now is “hardluvnman,” and he seems different — sensitive, honest, and hot! He says he’s a plumber, while Lucy claims she’s a nurse! She’s really a mystery writer, dating online while researching her next book. Hey, everyone lies a little, don’t they?


But Quinn’s really an undercover cop hunting down a serial killer, and he sees Lucy as his top suspect. And while he could really go for this smart, sexy woman with the killer bod — if that’s the only thing “killer” about her — he knows he needs to wine and dine her and discover the truth. Hey, he realizes the dating scene can be deadly — but this is ridiculous!

BOOK REVIEW: Water for Elephants


I absolutely LOVED this novel by Canadian author Sara Gruen. It is a fictional story set at the height of the great depression about a travelling circus. The story is told from the point of view of protagonist Jacob. What’s interesting about this book is that the story boomerangs from present to past. The description and attention to detail is admirable – the author has done extensive research and the story is based on some factual accounts.

The characters are fascinating and likable and the romance is beautifully captured.

I’m sure you’ve all seen the movie with Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson, but if you haven’t read the book yet, it’s worth the read!!

Five stars!!!

BOOK REVIEW: The Five Stages of Falling in Love

So I promised Book Reviews a while back, and I haven’t done any yet. That is because I haven’t had a chance to read much these past few months. With my three kids, the release of Book 1 of my trilogy this past June and still putting the final touches on Book 2 and 3, I haven’t had an extra minute! But I resolve to carve out more time to read from now on.

My reviews will be short. And sweet. Here is my first one.



From Goodreads:

The Five Stages of Falling in Love is a Contemporary Romance.
Elizabeth Carlson is living in the pits of hell- also known as grief.

Her husband of eight years, the father of her four children and the love of her life, died from cancer. Grady’s prognosis was grim, even from the start, but Liz never gave up hope he would survive. How could she, when he was everything to her?

Six months later, she is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and get the kids to school on time. Both seem impossible. Everything seems impossible these days.

When Ben Tyler moves in next door, she is drowning in sorrow and pain, her children are acting out, and the house is falling apart. She has no time for curious new friends or unwanted help, but Ben gives her both. And he doesn’t just want to help her with yard work or cleaning the gutters. Ben wants more from Liz. More than she’s capable of ever giving again.

As Liz mourns her dead husband and works her way through the five stages of grief, she finds there’s more of her heart to give than she thought possible. And as new love takes hold, she peels away the guilt and heartache, and discovers there’s more to life than death.

This was the first book I’ve read from this author. And I loved it! It was sweet, tender and sexy. The characters were extremely well developed and the writing was engaging. I loved Ben!! I could see this book as a beautiful movie! My only complaint is that is was a little slow paced – I enjoy fast-paced novels.

4.5 stars!

A Romantic Life: Blood lust

comic6blogI admit it… I LOVED The Twilight books but haven’t really followed up with reading other Vampire books. I loved how sensual and passionate the Twilight series was without being explicit. Now, if only we could all find ourselves a gorgeous brooding vampire. 🙂
