We made the trek to Borders yesterday for the next installment in the Harry Potter series. (Alex was inexplicably not feeling well enough to go to church this morning, and I just made that connection. Hmm.)
We had until close of business today to pick up our reserved 40% off copy. I, of course, had ulterior motives in addition to saving a significant bit of cash on HP6.
Somehow, Borders forgot to let me know when my reserved copy of Last Girl Dancing came in. We were moving, so it’s understandable. When I called about it, they were sold out, but I was assured that they would have copies this weekend. I had to search for it, but it was SO worth the trouble and the wait.
If you haven’t read this book yet, RUN, don’t walk to your nearest book retailer. The author is Holly Lisle, author of twenty or so books, mostly science fiction, more recently paranormal romantic suspense. You’ll find this book in the romance section, but don’t let that stop you. THIS romance has a plot, a whole bunch of twists, and just enough grit that you’ll be checking your drawers for sand. The characters don’t just speak; they sing. These are not the typical romance characters, all frill and fluff and cow eyes. Oh, no, these have spunk!
For you guys, there are strippers. Lots of them. Better than what you’ve seen probably, but I wouldn’t know personally. The best part is that you get to see them on stage and off. You get a glimpse of the women inside the quick-release costumes and fake boobs.
You can read the first chapter here.
Why are you still here? GO get the book!
I’m going to go make gelato now. Yum!
