In fact, I’ve already found my weekend read from this list. Forbidden love is right up my alley! *gasp*!! BOOK alley I mean.
And… I finished Unseen Messages: a survival romance novel and it was great!! There’s no way I could ever forget this one. Maybe not 5 stars for me, but darn good (I’m thinking 4 stars). Absolutely unforgettable and detailed and had SO many ups and downs and… an ending… and then another… and then another. LOL!!! Hard to explain what I mean (’cause I don’t wanna spoil it) but very good. And the longest book I think I’ve ever read. *phew* I feel like I’ve been living on an island forever now… I’ll post the review today!
Just wanted y’all to know i’m still here. *snort* Been absorbed by the sand and the sea and all the crazy that goes with it.
Amy: *hands mojito martini with EXTRA vodka to Maryse* …to welcome you back from the island.
Maryse: YAY!! Thank you Amy… there weren’t any of these on that deserted island, that’s for sure. They did try to ferment some fruit, though. Crafty!!

Amy: “What is it about him that makes him better for you than me?!” he bellows.“He’s not broken!”
Maryse: LOL!!!! You tell her, Amy!!!!! Here, I’ll hold your earrings…
Amy: *hands earrings to Maryse* I’m gonna throat punch that woman. And yet…I still don’t hate her.
Maryse: See?!! It’s reactions like THAT that make me wanna squirrel. *sigh* It’s a good thing my book is giving me panic attacks and is hard to put down. Or I’d be squirreling and chasing Amy’s book-rush right now.
Tessa: Oh dear. See that reaction makes me avoid the book. She sounds horrible.
Fabi: woooaa Amy…that’s some serious angst you have there in that book
Amy: If/when y’all read SMM then you’ll see why that response from her is so awful and why I reacted that way. She really is somethin’ else but I still have hope for her, even if it’s not in a certain capacity.
