Displaying ForkedCover.jpg

Title: Forked
Author: Melanie Harlow
Expected release: September 2014
Genres: Adult Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:  Twenty-eight year old Coco Thomas knows the recipe for disaster:

1) Agree to plan last-minute engagement blowout for spoiled Mafia princess before you realize her choice of caterer is Nick Lupo, a despicably gorgeous young chef with a hot new restaurant in town, a reality TV show victory, and a romantic past with you—one that did not end well.

2) Strike a deal with Nick in which you agree to spend a weekend with him in exchange for his services, under the strict conditions there will be no talking about the past, no second chances, and definitely no sex.

3) Violate all three conditions within 24 hours and spend two glorious days remembering what made you fall for the sexy, egotistical bastard in the first place, and why it hurt so much when he broke your heart. Add one road trip, plenty of good scotch, and endless spoonfuls of chocolate cake batter drizzled over your body and licked off inch by oh-my-God-yes-right-there inch, then just admit it.

You’re totally FORKED.

About the author: Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her lipstick red, and her history with the naughty bits left in. She’s a 20th century fanatic and gets her kicks from historical fiction and TV series like Boardwalk Empire, Magic City, Deadwood, Mad Men, and Downtown Abbey (although she wishes it were more HBO and less PBS).

Insurgent Recap – Chapter 9

In which characters annoyingly interrupt each other… 

Today at work I decided to check my WordPress and got into my stats page. I almost choked on soda when I read that someone got on my blog by searching “tris finds four masturbating“. And it’s still funny after 4 hours. Dude (or dudette), if you want a saucy read, this is not the book you should be reading. And shame on you for getting my hopes up that something interesting might happen in those books. I’m pretty sure that nothing like that would happen, but I’ll keep my eyes open. Maybe pointing scenes where Four masturbating could have been used. Continue reading
