Ladies Man by Katy Evans, Manwhore Series

Ladies Man by Katy Evans is a romance in the Manwhore series I honestly enjoy.  Though the series name, "Manwhore," totally turned me off, when I accidentally ran into it the other day, thinking I'd read a few pages and discard it, it was actually pretty good.  Yeah, he's a manwhore, but the love story… Continue reading Ladies Man by Katy Evans, Manwhore Series

Womanizer by Katy Evans, Manwhore series

Womanizer by Katy Evans is a fun book in the Manwhore series.  The Manwhore titled gave me pause, but I came across it today and read it cover to cover.  It's hot don't get me wrong, but I love how strong the female lead is and how supportive the male lead becomes. What I disliked:… Continue reading Womanizer by Katy Evans, Manwhore series

Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman

Wow. Just wow. I ran across a quote from the book "Here on Earth" by Alice Hoffman on one of my favorite blogs, Everyday Strange, and it piqued my curiosity enough to fork over some dough for a read slightly different than my go-to. It was so worth every penny. "Here on Earth" by Alice Hoffman… Continue reading Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman

“We’re not going to fall. We’re going to soar.”

Congratulations to the Eagles on their win last night, felling our Vikes and soaring to the Super Bowl. Though I can't say I was rooting for the Eagles last night, I just may in a couple weeks.  IF they quit trying to steal our chant that is.

I was… Continue reading It’s not the lie that’s the problem:
