“I write about the men you want to read about but don’t necessarily want to be married to.” – Susan Elizabeth Phillips
What a beautiful, rainy day here in Cleveland. What is it about rain that causes people drive 15 miles per hour on the highway?! It’s rain people not hot lava spewing from the heavens. Good grief. Clevelanders drive better in the snow, I guess. Just venting because I was 10 minutes late getting Gage to school – our first tardy in three weeks.
Okay, yesterday I switched books because I knew I’d have a lot of time to read since I was (and am) home with the wallpaper guy (wallpaperer?). I read First Star I See Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She is a go to author and one of a handful of authors who have me purchasing their newest hardcover when it comes out. I’ve read and loved all of her romances. This is technically listed as Chicago Stars #8 but this is not really a series. You’ll see some of the same people show up, but in no way do you have to read the series in order to enjoy it and I don’t say that very often.
What’s it about – A recently retired pro football player is being followed by a fledgling private investigator. When he calls her on it she uses her humor and wit to power through all the way to a new job. Sparks, fly, of course, and there’s plenty of hot sex to keep them panting after each other.
What did I learn – I learned how to skim some money of I ever want to be a bartender and that those ridiculously crazy comments you see on the internet are (hopefully) written by someone who is getting paid.
Who would love it – Any lover of romances with smart and funny characters. Phillips has a gift for light hearted romances that still pack an emotional punch.
After my reading marathon yesterday (370 pages!) and only sleeping from 2-6 it’s going to be hard to find my reading mojo today. Wish me luck!
