With a book and a tattoo.......

 I am never really any good with these things, I kind of feel like I am at a job interview. So let's see, what can I tell you about me and my little blog thingy? Ok well I am an avid reader and have been doing since I first learned how. About a year ago I became a part of the review world. I am in no way a professional and I pretty much do it for the fun of it. I have no rules and no guidelines for myself, well except for I always have to be completely honest. And you can tell by my reviews that I have posted so far that I have no problem at all with that. I add my personality to every review and I know things don't always make sense but I bet you laughed(hopefully). I usually stick to romance books but I have been know to pick up others if the cover and synopsis garb my attention. I currently help out on a couple blogs and reviews teams plus I am an occasionally guest reviewer on one. 

 To tell you about me well, I am a 30+ year old stay at home mom. I went completely blind about two years ago. But with a couple of eyes surgeries I now have complete vision back in one eye. I have a serious weakness for tattoos and I am currently proudly showing off 12 of my own. Yeahhhh, so that's it for now. 

Everything You Need to Know by HelenKay Dimon

Everything You Need to Know - HelenKay Dimon

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.


 This was a good book. It was a funny read, I was either giggling or smirking throughout the whole thing. And with the day I have had, that was definitely needed. And let me tell you, the humor is really what made this book. Now don't get me wrong, this really was a good story and I thought the characters were great. Heck, I was even excited because the author used the word underwear instead of panties. Yes I hate, HATE that word. Sigh, but sadly soon the word panties was thrown in there. But that and some downtime where the story seemed to slow down some are my only complaints.


 So the characters were wonderful. I really liked Jordan and her feisty attitude. Her best friend was hilarious also. Some of the things that came out of their mouths had me busing out laughing. Especially when they were talking about the guys on the website they had. Some of the stuff I believe a couple of the guys I have dated are guilty of doing. So anyways, her story is after losing her job and having a few horrible dates, she decides to start a website to make woman aware of what they may be getting themselves into. I think that was a fantastic idea, maybe I should start one here. So while working her temp job and investigating a gentleman (ha!) for her site, she meets the elusive Forrest Redder. He was actually a little bit of a change from the guys I have been reading about lately. He had a little bit of alpha in him but the man didn't breathe it. But that did seem to fit him. Now he seems to notice Jordan and he can not seem to get her out of his head. And here our little tale starts. He is all of a sudden on a mission to get Jordan and learn all her secrets. As he said in the book, he loves a challenge. I really thought they were ok with each other but the seemed to show more passion and feelings in the bedroom. Outside of it there were cute but ehh I didn't get much from them. So together they get about a 4.5, individually I would give her a 8 and him a 7. So as I said the humor is what really made this book, the characters were likable and the story was good. I really do wish you could do halves on Goodreads because I would give this book a 3.5.
