If You Could Only Choose Your Mother by Julie Harford
Review by Kevin Ferrall
Marvelous. If you’ve seen Spanglish, 10 things I hate about you, then prep yourself for a should- be-film story. If You Could Only Choose Your Mother by Julie Harford is not a groundbreaking piece, but it is impressionable.
To begin, the story is a teen romance telling of the protagonist’s growth in teen angst, peer pressure, and first love. I know we’ve all heard the plot before, but this is a definite must read. I, too, thought the title of the piece to be banal, but … Read More »

Undenied by Maya Banks
He’s no cow poke and she’s no milk maid. The talk is dirty, the scenes are raunchy and the conversation is titillating. I don’t know what it is about Ms. Banks novellas that have me giggling and feeling like a naughty little girl.
Maya Banks has done it again! Undenied is undeniably the best erotic novella I’ve read in a long time! A fun bunch of characters that immerse you in southern comfort and make you feel right at home. Serious yee-haw going on! Wes Hoffman is back in the third installment to the series and … Read More »

I leave on Thursday for Tokyo. Time has flown by so quickly. This vacation was about being with family and trying to relax. I’ve been stressed lately with stuff and I really needed this break. I feel like just when I’ve started to relax, it’s time to go back. I love it here and am going to miss it.
We’ve been to the beaches a few times and ate out way too much. My stomach can’t handle all those calories and portions. LOL! Tomorrow, we’re heading over to San Diego Bay where we’ll take the kids to view the Star … Read More »

Say You’re Mine is a novella by Sydney Somers that launches the Spellbound series. This delightful story will keep you turning pages and salivating for more. I’ve alread purchased book two, Don’t Let Go, which is novel length, and can’t wait to read it.
Say You’re Mine is a blend of romance and mystery that introduces Violet Calder, the sane family member (according to her), who comes from a long line of witches. Unfortunately, life takes a turn to the left when Violet ends up smack in the middle of a police investigation. She’s not exactly complaining since it … Read More »

Okay, I usually do go off at the mouth but I have to today. Might be hormon changes due to the weather or children home 24/7 but I find myself on edge. little decisions are steeing me off.
Latest issue on my list to totally moan and groan about is RWA status. Do I want it? I had it many years ago. I used the membership to go to one conference in NJ and NY. The money was well spent. I met nice people and submitted to a few of those editors. Since then, nada. Seeing I had to change … Read More »
