While I'm happily married with 2 kids I still love to pretend I'm in some other world for a day (everyday, lol).
I have 2 personality flaws in my life (yes only 2).
1. I have an extremely addictive personality. This can become a small issue when you love to read. Basically once I start a book I DO NOT STOP until it is done, even if it is 3 am. I am no quitter!!
2. I can't focus on one task at a time. Luckily my first personality flaw helps with this one. I am constantly listening to audiobook. Seriously, like all day long. It is the only thing that helps be focus on my day to day tasks without constantly being side-tracked.
So with my reviews many will include an audio aspect of it. I love to curl up and read a book, but with that first personality flaw I mentioned above I get absolutely nothing done in life. Especially since once I'm hooked in a book there is no going back until I finish.
While I can get down with a good old fashion rom-com, I love finding a dark gritty world of mystery and suspense, or getting lost in a whole new paranormal world with shifters, vampires and dragons.
I have realized over the last several years, I have absolutely no trigger warnings in books. Sometimes it amazes me the books that I fall in love with. From kidnappings, to mafia, to motorcycle, shifter, to a good BDSM book, I’m truly not picky……. As long as I get a happily ever after, oh and I great epilogue! I’m a sucker for a good epilogue.
I review my books based on how they make me feel, not always on how are put together. Some of my favorite books are definitely rough around the ends, and some of my least favorites win awards for their literary geniusness.
I am here to be the light to Katie’s dark, the love note to her kidnapping, the alpha hunk to her werewolf. Don’t get me wrong, I can love a good paranormal or dark story as long as the love has lots of feels.
~I want my heart to hurt
~I want to cry
~I want to laugh out loud
~I want to become part of the characters and story
~I want to feel the words in my bones
In short, I love LOVE! An alpha male, a commanding man who knows who and what he wants. A woman who needs this man more than anything. They can communicate with looks and can read each other without words. He would sacrifice his life for her and she would give everything for him. He has broad shoulders, narrow hips, and the eyes (there are always amazing eyes!).
A good book is my place to escape and dream and live vicariously (sometimes, ok most of the time) through some sexy characters and their amazing, albeit scary and crazy stories!
Once I start a book, I find myself absorbed with it. I very rarely DNF a book. I also do not like having a TBR list, once a book hits my kindle I have to finish it before finding my next epic romance.
While Katie loves her audiobooks, I have always been a lover of actually reading.
