So, I had this bright idea that we should do a joint post.
We haven’t had many books to review lately, because I’ve been reading what Kay is reading, but about a week behind, which doesn’t work well for review purposes.
Kay’s work schedule got a little more involved.
That’s the only excuse I can come up with.
Or maybe she just thought I was slacking?
I don’t know, but the result is that we haven’t posted any new reviews and I’m about 2 days (or more) away from finishing my current read.
(And, Oh Wow! I am loving Riveted by Meljean Brook.
And Kay won’t even read the series because it’s not hot enough for her.
Kay, you’re missing out!)
OK, so I was thinking a joint post about what our favorite, comfort read are would be fun. One where we both contribute, talking about what we read again and again. I was going to get Kay’s input and then rewrite everything, but after looking at our emails, I think you’ll get to know us better by seeing them as they were sent.

Hey, let’s do a joint post about comfort reads. I’ll write it, but will you send me a short list of the books you read over and over for comfort and why they are a comfort read for you.
For me, off the top of my head, it’s
Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon, because I love the relationship between Vane and Bride. I love that she’s a bigger woman and that’s a turn on for him. I have to ignore the WTF time travel in the middle, though.
Irene’s story* in Shelly Laurenston’s series. It’s just so over the top and perfect, I love it.
Laid Bare by Lauren Dane is one I’ve enjoyed multiple times.
Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward is a great re-read, and since you already know what happens you can totally skip the Lessers.
I’ll think about it and may edit my list a bit, but if you want to send me your list I’ll make it into a post.

Don’t laugh, this is my short list:
If You Deceive-Kresley Cole
A Hunger Like No Other-Kresley Cole
Highlander Untamed-Monica McCarty
Dark Lover-J.R. Ward
Extreme Danger-Shannon Mckenna
Nauti Nights-Lora Leigh
Nauti Dreams-Lora Leigh
Nauti Intentions-Lora Leigh
Only Pleasure-Lora Leigh
Wild Card-Lora Leigh
Raising Kane-Lorelei James
The Mane Event-Shelly Laurenston
The Mane Atrraction-Shelly Laurenston
Miss Congenialty-Shelly Laurenston
Tucker’s Claim-Sarah McCarty
Dance With The Devil-Sherrilyn Kenyon
All this did was upset me because now I wanna read these books and I’m too far behind. As usual!
So, first off you might notice that Kay’s definition of a “short list” of books is not very short. That’s ok, I understand. Upon reflection you might also notice that I can’t write a short email. Nope. I just can’t. This one to Kay is one of the shortest I’ve ever written. And it contains a list. And I can’t just give a list. No, I need to write out my reason for every entry on the list. That’s just the way it is.
So, there you are, a little insight into Kay and me.
PS *The Shelly Laurenston story I mentioned is Miss Congeniality by Shelly Laurenston.
