Review:

With the frigid temperatures and the high accumulation of snow, I haven’t been getting out much.  My riding lessons have been canceled more than they’ve been run, so I have taken the opportunity the down time has presented to pack in more reading.  A recent trip to the library yielded some graphic novel finds, and with The Walking Dead TV show resuming this week, I decided to take the time to get a better handle on the background of the series.  I have seen the last three episodes of the show, in addition to bits and pieces of many others, and now that I’m hooked, I’m all over all things Walking Dead related.

Novella Review: Crazy Stupid Sex by Maisey Yates

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

When I first started reading Crazy Stupid Sex, I was a bit apprehensive.  The beginning didn’t instill much confidence, and I felt I have read the same bar pickup scene five times already this year.  Once the action shifted  to an office setting, however, I was all over this read.  It’s sexy, fast-paced, and the hero redeemed himself enough for me to ignore the fact that he had been behaving like a spoiled sloth for the past 10 years, hopping for one hookup to the next, with no sense of connection or commitment at all.  I usually hate guys like that, but Maisey Yates does a good job ripping away his too-cool for school veneer, and I actually warmed up to Caleb by the end of the story.
