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 &...

review: The Infidelity Series, by Aleatha Romig

The Infidelity series, which isn’t about cheating, is one of those series that stays with you long after the story has ended. I read book one, which ended in a cliffhanger, and then paused in reading books 2-5 because I was too anxious to find out what would happen next. Needless to say, when I finally got started—I binged books 2-4 in a weekend. Some people have Netflix, I have the written word. The...

As the 3rd and final installment in the Magdalene series, it did not disappoint. Spanning the course of roughly 2...

sting, by sandra brown

Sandra Brown was the first to autograph my edible bookmark poster my first year at RT Booklovers. I was a fan long before I met her and was in awe at how gracious and kind she was. I mean, it’s Sandra Brown–best selling author, forever. A master at romance and suspense combined, she weaves a tale with twists that keep you intrigued page after page. In the case of Sting, I just knew there...

end of summer reads

I know, technically Labor Day has come and gone and kids are back in school. But, if you know me personally or follow me on social media then you already know that the edible bookmark (i.e. that’s me) is on vacation. It’s my family’s annual trip to Hawaii that always happens after everyone else is back to their routines and business as usual, though we’re here a little early this year. Never the less,...
