Book Review: How to Fail at Flirting

How To Fail At Flirting 5 stars Genre: Contemporary romance This is a novel layered with both romance and the deeper theme of partner violence.

This is definitely a steamy book (hotter than I usually read), and I enjoyed the lighter intimate connection between the … [Read more...]

Festive Reading

"A new challenge is near." (fortune cookie saying) Here's how I celebrated during my much-needed break from writing over these last few weeks. I read. For fun! Sometimes I like measuring my vacations by the number of books I've read. It gives me an indication of how much lovely time I spent between the pages of a book. Also, it fuels that inner competitive streak in me. (In elementary school, I once won a reading contest hands-down--and got handsomely rewarded with a gift card to a local … [Read more...]
