She still found Jake to be six feet two inches of pure temptation. 

The little girl looked at him over her mother’s shoulder and he felt as if he’s been flattened by a steamroller. The baby had dark hair and big blue eyes. The same colour of cobalt that met his gaze when he looked into the mirror each morning to shave.

First Month as an Intern

Here I am, nearly finished my first month as an intern. Time has gone by so fast! It is hard to believe how much I’ve done in these past few weeks, you kind of have to stop and think about all you’ve learned to realize all that you have actually learned. Everything is just so much fun!

Things I have done: Continue reading “First Month as an Intern”

Simple Smile Saturday: Music

Waiting On Wednesday (may-4)

This week I have discovered yet another book I may want to read due to getting to mail out review copies this past week. You have to admit that the cover is somewhat peculiar and grabs your attention, so is it any wonder I couldn’t resist reading the jacket copy?

You possibly noticed that I said that I “may” want to read, because I’m not totally sure! I have to say that the content sounds disturbing, and the pictures definitely evoke that same type of feeling. It seems so deliciously freaky that you just can’t resist rather than being scary-freakish…

But, then, it could be both!

Santa Clause couldn’t find this place if he had GPS on his sleigh. And if he did, his reindeer would slide off the tin roof and fall to their doom, and we’d get sued. 

When Cappie started running into door facings looking at him, everybody else in the office started grinning.

I went to the dollarama yesterday to kill some time and happened to peruse the tiny book section, which normally has no selection, but found this:

I had read Gone with the Nerd a few years back when I got it from the library. I liked the series, there are six or seven of these “nerd” books,  but never bought any. Yet when I saw this hardcover book for just $1.50, well, who could pass that up?

Book Review: No Surrender by Shannon Stacey

Synopsis: It was supposed to be a routine sneak n’ peak, but someone tattled, leaving Gallagher and Carmen running for their lives.  Unfortunately, their get-away helicopter had been tampered with and, after the crash, the two agents are stuck in the mountains hoping to survive.  At least they had each other to keep warm until their rescue.  Carmen tries to keep things as one-night stand, while Gallagher wants more, thus causing tension as they continue their mission to find the saboteur and save a female hostage who has been enduring two years of captivity.
