This n' That

I read The Sex Quotient by Jamie Sobrato, another Harlequin Blaze. This had an rather lame premise: the heroine's best friend is a medical researcher whose most recent study has shown that orgasms reduce a person's IQ for a period of time. So Macy, the intrepid heroine, decides that she will seduce her work rival Griffin during a Vegas business trip. She will boink his brains out all weekend, while not coming herself, so that he'll be stupid at work on Monday and she'll get the promotion that they are in competition for. Hmmm...points for creativity! This started out bleh, got better and ended up bleh. The heroine is kinda annoying and I didn't really buy the transition from hot sexin' to true luv. But it wasn't awful, just fun and forgettable. I wanted to like the Blaze line better, because it seems the most contemporary--no virgin mistresses or marriages of convenience for the sake of the orphaned niece/nephew (Geezus Kee-rist, what a popular plot!). No that I'd make a generalization based upon 2 books. Sybil recommended Jo Leigh and Alison Kent, and Bam just positively reviewed one of Jo Leigh's books. I've still got a Silhouette Bombshell to read. If anyone else is popping by and would like to rec a Harlequin author and line, please do so. I'm enjoying the change of pace.

I made a purchase from Changeling Press, of the bad covers. At Dear Author, there is a 5% discount code. I have to admit, I was inspired to buy two of the titles from this post at Fiona's Farrago. Yes, I bought two of the horrible 13.

I'm so happy Deadwood's back, and so sad this is the last season. How hot is Timothy Olyphant's...posture? No joke, when Seth Bullock goes striding down the thoroughfare in his frock coat (or whatever it is), he cuts one fine figure. Geezus!



Am I right? Look at his posture. I loved this actor in Goand hated him in Scream 2, both out around the same time, but I didn't really appreciate him until Deadwood. But my real love is Al Swearingen, because I'm just a sick chick like that.

Lord Almighty - that's seriously the idea? To boink him like crazy while holding it all in herself so that she'll be smarter than him? Well hmmm ... sounds good. I think I'd thrown that one across the room. LOL :)

I really wanted to like this, because I've been to the author's blog, and she's very funny, but it was too dumb. Oh well, I would give her another try though.
