review: fast lane, by kristen ashley

It’s been a while since a book has stayed with me long after I put it down. Fast Lane was that book. Which is ironic, because the author, Kristen Ashley, was inspired to write this book after reading Daisy Jones & the Six, a book that stayed with her. She said it was the first time she had prolonged reading a book because she was enjoying it so much. I haven’t read Daisy Jones & the Six, but you better believe it’s on my TBR list for 2020. (Ashley also cites truly listening to the lyrics of the The Eagles song, Life in the Fast Lane, as added inspiration.) Fast Lane is written in an interview format. The narrator, whose identity is…

One Month, One Vampire Series

Ok, I’m a little late to the Black Dagger Brotherhood book series, but better late than never right? I never read any of the Twilight books, or saw any of the movies, and I’m only up to episode 4 of season 1 of True Blood.
