Quote of the Day

“I wanted you to stop.”

“I was encouraged by you breathlessly moaning my name.”

I spun on my foot. “I wasn’t moaning your name. I was shrieking in alarm.”

“That was the sexiest throaty shrieking I’ve ever heard.”

“You need to get out more.”

~~ Ilona Andrews, Burn for Me

Fangirl Fridays – Inside Out Series by Lisa Renee Jones



Have you ever read one of Lisa Renee Jones’s books? Her stories are a blend of drama, suspense, and dark erotica.

Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Benson #1) was my first experience with LRJ’s books. The heroine, Amy, was on the run, her life in mortal danger, and I was running with her, unable to figure out whom to trust, who was friend, and who was foe.

That series made me look for more from this author. Next, I picked up If I Were You, the first installment in the Inside Out series. After the jump, I’ll share my take on this story of dark desires and intrigues.

Quote of the Day



“Damn it, Kayden, I want to talk about this!”
“I talk better naked, and so do you.”
“We don’t talk better naked.”
“We do a lot of things better naked.”
“I’m trying to protect you.”
“Protect me naked,” He says.
“This isn’t funny,” I object.
“I don’t remember Laughing.”
“We have to talk about this.”
“We will.”He enters the bedroom and kicks the door shut. “Eventually.”

Quote of the Day

“Yes, I'm a hermit. Mostly I brood," Mad Rogan said. "Also, I'm very good at wallowing in self-pity. I spend my days steeped in melancholy, looking out the window. Occasionally a single tear quietly rolls down my cheek.”

Quote of the Day

The diggers-up-of-the-past don't think being called 'diggers-up-of-the-past' is a posh enough name, so they call themselves archaeologists.

Fangirl Friday: Books into TV Shows

This is a great time for TV. There are so, so many good shows out and so many different platforms producing TV. It's a really beautiful thing for someone like me. I work over forty hours a week, nights and weekends, and I have a three year old. I don't have much time or energy for going out to the movies. But, with so many fantastic shows out right now, I don't have to. There are so many shows I could talk about, but given what kind of blog this is and the plethora of choices, for today's Fangirl Friday, I'm going to focus on TV shows that are based on books. There are/have been some absolutely SPECTACULAR translations just in 2017. They are spoiling us, really. So, sit back, relax, and follow me after the break to discuss some great TV shows of 2017.

Quote of the Day

I considered screaming and running past the sentry and back into the courtyard, but stood my ground out of nothing more than sheer stubbornness. I had sought him out, after all. I was a warrior. Warriors don't scream and run.
