Ramblings




  • Yeah. I disappeared again. At least it hasn’t been all that long this time.  I am having some issues with vertigo so I have mainly been flat on my back listening to podcasts & audio books. At least I am getting paid for being on my back but there are so many things I could be doing like finishing up a necklace, taking pics & getting them uploaded. 
  • I do have to say thank goodness for the job I have.  I might complain when they start messing with my commissions but they have good benefits.  My short term disability will cover all of my wages for the first six weeks.

Book Review: Kiss Kiss Bang




Six-foot-two and ripped...with superior computer skills, Josef “Joey” Clad is not your typical ex-Marine. The co-owner of Iron-Clad securities is 100% Alpha male, but under his muscular physique, he's the best hacker in Miami who specializes in running Iron-Clad's cyber ops. The perfect skill set for their new client who is getting threatening emails, a client who he definitely wants to get to know better. Much better.

Single mom, widow, Olivia Monroe has exceptional dreams that she refuses to let go of. Fifteen years ago, she left her broken home in New York City and never looked back. Now a dark horse candidate for Florida governor, she's not looking for a relationship. Even with the hot guy who sweeps in and saves her computer the night before a big speech. Her hero has trouble written all over him. Joey is too handsome, too funny, too confident, and way too hard to resist.

Too bad he's now her bodyguard.

The men of Iron-Clad Security are definitely eye candy and it sure doesn't hurt that they are all extremely intelligent.  Joey is no exception.  He is pretty laid back unless someone threatens someone that he is hired to protect or someone that he cares about.

Olivia is trying to run a clean race against the current governor who doesn't appear to care about anything but padding his pockets.  When she starts getting threatening emails and damage to her property, she is rather glad that her computer had broken down in the first place.

KISS KISS BANG is the third book this series that I have thoroughly enjoyed.  It stands quite nicely on its own merits though I do recommend the whole series. The plot is tight with the tension ratcheting up slowly until you are sitting on the edge of your seat.  The dialogue is witting and some of the scenes are flat out amusing.  Another thing that I appreciated with this book is how the sexual tension is allowed to build quite nicely before there is any relief.

I do recommend this book to any of my readers who like a good romantic suspense especially one that delves into the dirty world of politics.  Joey is worth drooling over and Olivia is a good example of a single mother trying to juggle her daughter, her job, and finding time for Joey.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
