“Quote-Tastic Monday” is a meme hosted every Monday on Herding Cats & Burning Soup. Head on over there to see what everyone else is posting about this week.
I always think of book reviews posts as focusing on new books or books that are soon to be published. Since I am in a re-reading phase, that is not happening for me right now. Of course, I can always tell myself that I am introducing readers to new-to-them books/series and alleviate the guilt of not writing about new books.
Hey, I’m easy to convince of things that go along with what I want any day.
So, Shelly Laurenston is one of my all time favorite authors. I particularly love the Pride series of which this is book eight. I have reviewed it before and gave it a well-deserved five stars. This post is simply to highlight a couple of my favorite passages.
Reece is not a main character in this book, but the younger brother of Ricky Lee, the male lead. He is the really goofy one of the group.
And when Reece was a bit uncomfortable, he started looking for things to do. Things he probably shouldn’t do but couldn’t keep himself from doing because he bored so easy.
It wasn’t his fault, he’d just been born that way. According to his momma, he was like that as a baby, too. “Couldn’t leave you alone for five minutes, Reece Lee Reed,” his momma still said to this day. “Because once I turned my back, you’d find something to get your dumb ass into.”
Ricky and Toni are talking about the fact that her father can’t handle the fact that his jackal daughter has fallen for a wolf . . . a hillbilly wolf no less. Ricky is not sure that Toni has really fallen for him . . .
When she pulled back a bit, Ricky softly asked, “You sure about that? The falling, I mean. Because I can’t really tell.”
“Because you’re male and all of you are hopelessly stupid.” She smiled at him and went back to the stove.
This is one of the funniest books in the series and that is saying something. If you are ever down and need something to cheer you up, I cannot recommend this series enough. You will laugh out loud, and I’m not just LOLing! I have two series that I grab when I don’t know what I want to read or I really need something to get me out of a slump. Jayne Ann Krentz’ dustbunny books is one and this series is the other.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
