Personal Updates

Hey everyone, Over the next couple of days I will be updating the site with all the reviews that have not been uploaded to the site over the past month or so. Unfortunately, I’ve been a bit on the ill side lately. A couple years ago I had a couple rounds of chemo and it turns out my body really reacts poorly to chemo and I’ve had complications ever since then. Never in a million years would I have ever considered that chemo could trigger celiacs disease, as it turns out it can, and it did. After a couple of years of writing off my symptoms as my body healing from a traumatic experience, it all came to head and it turns out I have celiacs disease, something I have learned a lot about after the last couple of weeks, and I am trying to get under control.

Two things Paisley has had enough of. When Hank presents a “no strings attached” offer, it’s too good to be true. She can enjoy him while still embracing being single. But, poor choices force her to confront old fears of love and… Read more »

Lingus by Mariana Zapata

Lingus by Mariana Zapata

Lingus by Mariana Zapata Format: eBook Source: Purchased Genres: Contemporary Romance, Friendship, Humorous, New Adult, Romance Buy on Amazon • Goodreads Most people would describe Katherine Berger as a responsible girl with a big heart, a loyal friend who takes care of those close to her, and the possessor of a wicked sense of humor. There was something about her that most people didn’t know. “My name is Kat Berger, and I love porn.” When twenty-five-year-old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend, she’s both embarrassed and nervous. The last thing she ever expected was to meet someone who makes her laugh like no other. This is a story about acceptance and friendship, and a love born out of the most unexpected of places. So I have to admit the cover of this book through me off a bit, but I read Zapata’s other book Under Locke, which I absolutely adored so after a couple of… Read more »
