Book Review – Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid

Beauty and the Mustache

Beauty and the Mustache (Knitting in the City book 4) by Penny Reid Contemporary Romance, Can stand alone. I have been wanting to read more of Penny's books since Neanderthal meets Human, but my reading schedule just didn't allow it. But when Beauty and the Mustache came out, and Penny said it could stand alone, I did something I rarely do, I skipped 2 books in the series and read this. It made me want to read the other two so much more. And I think this BaTM would have been a lot better had I read the other two. Other than Janie, I didn't remember all the girls from knitting night, and I think that if I had Ashley's story before she came to Tennessee I would have appreciated the story even more. No doubt about it, Penny is a a phenomenal writer, and her writing is different from most authors I read, less dirty and way smarter. But Penny makes it seem effortless. Beauty and the … (continue reading)

20 Things I Learned at the Tampa Indie Mash-up with HUGE Signed Swag and Books Giveaway

Indie Mashup Giveaway

I spent the weekend at Indie Mashup in Tampa this weekend. Though I had only read 3 authors on the list so far, there were about 10 authors from last year's Wicked Book Weekend who I was dying to see again, plus it was a great excuse to meet up with some of my favorite people who I only see at signings, like Joanne, Shannon and Kerry. After a 4 hour drive, I got in and apparently everyone was in the bar, and my favorite pickle lady, Abbie 'Dontbeadick' was there with some of her tasty treats from The Chill Dill. It's strange, I am so comfortable with other readers, that I come out of my self-conscious shell and just walk up to strangers!!! And let me tell you, there was some MAJOR girl-on-girl groping going on in that bar. The guys were loving it. The girls weren't too upset either, because we had lots of model eye candy. It was honestly such a GREAT weekend. It seemed like the … (continue reading)

Book Review – Wicked Innocence by Missy Johnson with Paperback Giveaway

Wicked Innocence

Wicked Innocence by Missy Johnson NA Rock Star Romance. Standalone (So far).  I read Wicked Innocence by Missy Johnson because I found the blurb intriguing.

My fake ID says I’m twenty-one. And I will be…in four years. What can I say? I blossomed early. Home sucked, so I left, determined to do something with my life.

Megans Musings – Melt for Him by Lauren Blakely with giveaway

Melt for Him

Melt for Him by Lauren Blakely 2nd in the Fighting Fire Series of Standalones. Contemporary Romance  Melt for Him is the first full-length novel of the Fighting Fire series. The first book in the series is the novella Burn for Me (currently FREE at time of posting!). Even though this is technically the second story in the series, it can absolutely be read as a standalone, which I did. But I will tell you, I immediately jumped into Burn for Me when I was done. Melt for Him was my second Lauren Blakely experience (the first was the Seductive Nights Trilogy, see my review here), and I assure you, it will not be my last. Lauren has a way to bring the story to life and set my kindle afire. This one was especially hot because it involved my favorite, firemen. Not to mention the heroine in this book has the most kick-ass name in the history of ever…not that I’m biased or … (continue reading)

Carey Heywood

Wow, The Other Side of Someday by Carey Heywood sounds SOOOOO good! And so hot! I can't wait to read this, and check out the cover for the next book, Half Truths! Falling in love? Courtney Grayson has been there, done that. Men, who needs them? Love wasn’t everything she thought it would be. This time around she’s doing things differently.

He’s never been in love and he doesn’t see it happening. Hooking up can be fun, but more often than not, women are a distraction he doesn’t need.

Deleted Scene – Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid

Beauty and the Mustache Deleted Scene

I am just starting this book from Penny Reid. I have read so many AMAZEBALLS things about it, I had to read it! Plus...Penny has kind of a thing for me. Seriously. She luuuurves me! (And I'm a little scared of her.) So she has this series...Knitting in the City. And it's really funny, but not in the 12 year old boy humor way, but in a biochemist smart way.  In fact, Penny is a biochemist or some shit like that that smart people do. But it is such a refreshing change! I have only had a chance to read the first in the series, but I have been hearing so much about Beauty and the Mustache that I had to read it! Penny says it stands alone, so I am starting right when I finish this post. This is a full-length novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the fourth book in the 'Knitting in the City' series. There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six … (continue reading)
