The Mane Squeeze by Shelly Laurenston

This isn't a review.  I'm too tired right now to actually right a real review, but I will probably post one soon of this book if  I don't ramble too much about it right here and now.

Ok, first off: You girlies can see the cover clearly, yeah?  Because every time I close the book or pick it up, I feel the urge to act like a 12 year old and start kissing the cover. ; ) 

Now, for my mid-night ramble:


I have been waiting and waiting to buy this series, but because they are Trade Paperbacks (the big ones) I didn't because I don't want to spend like $15 or 16 bucks each on a book.  So, I browsing my used book store one day, and, oh how I love this lady that works there, she carried a pile of eroticas and basically set them right in my lap.  So, I ended up with 3 Shelly Laurnstons and 1 Janelle Denison (Wilde Thing).

Anyways, point is, after the debate of which one to read, well I chose The Mane Squeeze and AWWWW I just want to read it all over again!! 

The male hero in the book is a bear shifter named Lachlan "Lock" and he is just so fricken adorable!  I kid you not. 

For example: 
-Lock is a bear who gets embarrassed by swarms of women paying attention to him.
-He likes to play with his toes when he gets depressed/angry/bored/playful/etc.
-He is a god in the bedroom according to Gwen (our female lead).
-Like a bear, he sometimes drags his "prey" (or Gwen's annoying brothers) around the room like a Tonka toy and he doesn't even realize it.  Even cuter, he gets embarrassed when someone points it out.

I could go on and on, but I would totally ruin the book for anyone who has yet to read it.  And, if you haven't, you need to!  I laughed so hard reading THE MANE SQUEEZE that I had to stick a pillow over my head to muffle my squeals of happiness so I did not wake anyone up last night while reading it.  Again, I kid you not.  Lock is just SO adorable, and Gwen kicks ass!  Seriously.  She actually goes throughout the book kicking (and punching and clawing) people's asses (and other body parts).  It's half the action and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

So, anyways, what was supposed to be a small little "GO READ THIS BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME AND I WILL POST MORE ABOUT IT LATER" post, kind of turned into a horribly written and sloppy review.  Forgive me, I am tired and really need to go to bed.  But, the book was SOOO good, so you really should check it out.  I already have the next book in the series sitting on my night stand waiting for me when I'm not quite so sleepy.

So, good night everyone, and remember to enter in the current giveaways going on on both K & K's and Sexy Women Read before they end!  Annnd, if you withstood my sloppy review all the way to the end of this post, then you deserve a prize.  Prize is: 2 extra entries for any and all giveaways on any and all of my blogs.  Just comment TWICE SEPARATELY with "The Mane Squeeze" on the giveaway's page that you are wanting to enter in.

Until Next Time,
Happy Reading!

So I had a Blond Moment...

So, I had a Blond Moment this morning...

I went to check the mail and was excited with all my goodies.  (Turns out my goodies were just my books for the new semester, but oh well.)  Anyways, I got a WalMart sample of Cottonelle toilet paper. 

You know how one piece of tissue will stick out of a tissue box (the kind you use to blow your nose with)?  Well, one piece of toilet paper was attached to a piece of cardboard with some coupons and a sample of flush able wet wipes.

I showed my mom.  I told her, "Are you kidding me??  This is my sample?  How am I even supposed to see if I like this toilet paper when there is only one piece?"

My mom starts laughing.  She says "I guess they are saying that you only need one square because it is so absorbent, huh?"

I said, "This is stupid!  How is anyone supposed to wipe themselves with ONE square of toilet paper?"

Well... It turns out that my mom was making fun of me.  She then told me that there was more toilet paper stuck in the little boxed off area at the bottom of the carboard display (if you don't know what I mean then look below at the picture of some vitamins.  See how where "One A Day" is written?  Well, the box was much smaller, but it is the same idea.  It was a boxed off area at the bottom of the display).

Anyways, it turns out there WAS more than one square of toilet paper in the sample.  I was just raging on about nothing.  But, after the fact, I stopped to laugh at myself and how stupid my mom and I's converstaion was about the toilet paper sample.

Until Next Time,
Happy Reading!

Review: Seduced by the Wolf by Terry Spear ~ ARC

 His first priority is to protect his pack...

Werewolf pack leader Leidolf Wildhaven has just taken over a demoralized pack. With rogue wolves on the loose causing havoc and the authorities from the zoo suddenly zeroing in on the local wolf population, the last thing he needs in his territory is a do-gooder female, no matter how beautiful and enticing she is...

She'll do anything to help wolves...

Biologist Cassie Roux has dedicated her life to protecting wolves in the wild. On a desperate mission to help a she-wolf with newborn pups, the last thing Cassie needs right now is a nosy and entirely too attractive werewolf pack leader trying to track her down...

With rogue wolves and hunters threatening at every turn, Cassie and Leidolf may find their attraction the most dangerous force of all...
description taken from here.

OK, first: How hot is this cover??  I think it is absolutely gorgeous! 

Seduced by the Wolf was not my first Spear book.  In fact, I have read another of her wolf books and really enjoyed it, so I was happy to be able to review one of her new wolf books.  Unfortunately, I did not find it as good as her previous books.  Fortunately, it was still good.  Perhaps I has too high of standards for Spear when I came to her new book.  Whatever the fact, the new book was good, but not as good as her last books.

That said, as I stated beforehand, I still enjoyed it.  I thought the fact that Cassie was a werewolf (born, raised, and educated) was a nice twist to the book, as most were books seem to keep their characters separated by species to add to the barrier issues between them.

The plot was interesting, the characters well developed and the story line was good as well.  I can't say specifics of what makes her last books better than this one.  I just can't seem to place my finger on it, just that it held my interest far more. 

I thought Cassie's character was great!  The fact that she knew what she wanted and went after it was awesome and should be an inspiration to every woman.  Leidolf was hot!  He burnt some of my pages to a crisp... (haha)
