There is something annoying about this book for me and I’m not sure what exactly it was.  I can’t decide if it was the fact that once Julian and Ryan hook up,  Ryan says “Julian” or “Jules” ad nauseum.  That could have been it.  Or, it could have been that the blurb is definitely misleading, in that this is a paranormal book, not a contemporary (which is what I thought it was).   … Continue reading

It was a quick read and … Continue reading
