Shawn's Barnaby and Lily's Meme

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Since I have no idea who MIZB is, but I do know our lovely Lil and she encouraged everyone to play along, I thought I would do this one for fun! Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


As usual I'm an overachiever...imagine that! I picked paragraphs instead of just a sentence. LOL.

From Page 16

It was him. Casey. The beautiful man from the website. It had to be. He’d
never seen a man so perfect. His hair was tied back in a ponytail, but it was long,
past his shoulders. His cheekbones were amazing, his eyes big and expressive,
and rimmed with just a hint of black eyeliner. His lips were full and glossy. He
was slender and feminine but definitely a man. He wore tight black jeans and a
snug red t-shirt. The jeans were tucked into tall black combat boots. He was
shorter than Adam by a couple of inches. He looked Adam up and down.

From Page 20

Adam panted now, and slowly he brought his hands up, one settling on
Casey’s hip and the other at the back of his neck. He drew Casey’s slender form
against him gently, then leaned in to kiss him. Casey met him halfway, and
Adam felt the soft sigh of his breath before their lips touched.

Um...yeah, I'll be reading that book today. Casey sounds delicious! Bet Handsome will want to read this one too! Speaking of sexy heroes, OMG! I adored Shawn's Barnaby! As I told Shawn, Kevin will always be my favorite of hers that she's written, but Barnaby is almost as adorable and sexy. YUM! Of course, thinking of Barnaby I immediately think of Shawn's Ashtyn (I can't wait to read her interview with him!) and I thought I would post a picture of him today and probably tomorrow. Really the man is quite yummy! The picture I posted looks exactly how I pictured Shawn's Barnaby to be. Those of you who've read it...what do you think?

If you haven't read Only for Him, I encourage you to stop what you're reading and treat yourself to a truly fabulous story!

Have a fabulous day my friends! MUAH!

Handsome was right...

It's a very special day today. Once year ago, Shawn and I started talking outside the normal goodreads comments. She had read a book that was disturbing to say the least which led us to start a conversation about it. From there it just came natural for us to become friends.

It's been a fabulous year filled with a friendship that I never thought I would have. I've been very lucky to have met her and I have Jack and that author to thank. Jack practically had to force me to join Goodreads, as it turns out he was right. I did make fabulous friends that I have come to love, but most of all I met the best friend I could ever ask for.

So thank you, Jack, once again you were right, but don't tell anybody! MUAH!

As a present to both Shawn and I, AND the fact that Barnaby's book is out this weekend...I had to post a picture of Ashtyn to celebrate. YUM!

Happy Anniversary, Angel Face! MUAH!

I'm guilty

Am I guilty? I so am!

While talking to my BFF, we both made the observation that people don't participate at Goodreads anymore. I am guilty of this myself. Some of the drama and the negative things that had been said was driving me ape shit! (pardon the language, but it was how I felt) After some talking to my BFF and to Jack, we decided to take our Goodreads back.

So, to make amends to my terrible guilt, I'm encouraging all of our Internet and fellow reading friends to return to the place we all used to love to haunt... GOODREADS. We all need a positive place to go to. This big bad world sucks most of the time, and it would be nice to be able to keep track of what my friends are reading and what's going on with them.
If not Goodreads, we all need to find a place to mingle...even if it's for a few minutes a day or even a couple of days a week. We have something spectacular in common. That's the love of reading. It makes us almost like family in some ways because there are so many people who do not understand the beauty of the written word or the fabulousness of a lovely story. I still think Goodreads can be that place.

*Jumps off Soapbox*

ANYWAY, I've been feeling so much better! Jack and I had a fabulous weekend. We visited with his sister and her family, met with some friends and had a outstanding time just being with each other AND we read Still the One by my fabulishes BFF, Shawn Lane, and it was a utterly divine end to Malcolm and Dusty's journey. If you haven't read it, stop what you're doing right now and indulge yourself! It's short, sexy and very hot! YUM!

Thanks again to all of you who have thought about me while I was down. That meant a lot to both Jack and I. You're good friends and we've been lucky to have met and become friends with all of you.

As a thank you, I give you more of Adam. He really is quite YUMMY!

Simply Fabulous

Today I'm just sending a quick post to let you all know that I got a clean bill of health from my doctor today. I want to thank all of my friends who have kept me in your thoughts and prayers for a speedy and safe recovery.

You all are simply fabulous! MUAH!

I'm actually getting to go out tonight. We're visiting Jack's sister so I'll actually get to see something beside the interior of my house or doctor's office. GO ME!

I love Adam Ant. I used to have a major crush on him and I still love his music. Since he makes me happy, I thought I would post him on my blog. He really was damn SEXY!

I will post more later when I have more time. I just wanted to thank you all for everything. *Hugs*

One quick special note to my BFF: I love you.
