About Me

Call me a book worm…call me a book lover…shoot call me a book whore/book bitch – I have no shame in admitting my passion for books. My love affair with reading is a long and wonderful tale I would love to tell, but I won't bore you with the details, suffice it to say if it wasn't for 50 Shades, FictionPress and a whole bunch of conversations with a very dear friend, I wouldn't be where I am today.
I'm a sucker for a good romance…angsty, hot-n-steamy, funny, contemporary, YA, NA, erotica…you name it…I love ‘em all. I love to swoon over book bf's, get swept away in the emotions and of course have a goofy grin on my face at the end with my HEA (most of the time…). Authors are like my rock stars and my heros…and I try and keep my fangirl in check, but let's be honest, it's REALLY hard to do that. My other loves are music, movies, beta reading, and being with my friends and family – oh and I might have a small fb addiction! ☺
Now the facts….I am a born and raised Texan Girl, married/no kids – just cats, which trust me is a good thing cause I act too much like a kid! I'm a smart ass, I love to laugh and make people laugh, I generally try to be as happy and optimistic as I can be because let's face it, the alternative sucks. Anywho…looking forward to blogging – hope ya'll like what we do! ☺ ♥ xoxo


Obviously...reading! Music is my other love. Before books I was a movie the movies just don't seem as good as my imagination. I also love spending time with my friends and family, as well as my cats (I have four...yes I am the crazy cat lady - blame my husband, he encourages it!). Traveling is another passion...especially cruises, put me on a ship cut off from the world for a week - yes please! (especially if I have my kindle!)

Rescuing Lacey
Book Reviewed by Lisa - True Story Book Blog

I was looking for a change of pace when I found RESCUING LACEY, something outside the norm of the usual romance that I've been seeing. This book definitely fits that bill, and it surprised me, but sometimes not in the way I wished...
