Sometimes you have to quick solution it

Being a homeowner has its privileges and its pain in the butt moments. When it comes to home repair, those are the moments that I consider a pain in the butt. I usually try to repair things myself by looking for ways to repair it on youtube or I will go to found it here sites that have what I need to repair the tube under the sink.

I will shamelessly admit that I have ordered that putty that will stop any leak from the late night infomercial. I have quite a few times rigged things up with cable ties. Hey sometimes you got to work with whatever you have readily available to you. It might not always be a permanent solution but it sure is a quick temporary one until I can get a professional do it.

You are never too old to learn something new

My baby girl has continued with her singing. I am very proud of her for sticking to it this long. I happen to think she is very talented and can make it as a singer if she chooses to go through with practicing and continues learning how to control her tones and holding her notes. Before my daughter started singing and showing such enthusiasm in singing I could have cared less about musical instruments. I have learned more about musical instruments such as the hohner melodica in these past 4 years than I have in my whole lifetime.

I took violin lessons when I was 8 years old, but even then I don’t think I cared as much about it as my little girl does when it comes to music and her singing. I guess different kind of musical instruments go hand in hand with her singing. I am glad my daughter can teach her mom something new. It is amazing seeing the world through someone else’s eyes and the enthusiasm she shows makes me feel enthusiastic too.

Author: Blakely Bennett
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: August 5, 2014
Cover Designer: Yocla Designs
Editing: Read Owl

Lainie is a thirty year old, full-figured woman entrenched in a love affair with a married man. Although Lainie loves Mason desperately, she vows never to say those three little words while he remains with his wife.

Stayman, an enigma in Lainie’s close-knit group of friends, has been circling her with interest, trying to garner her attention. When circumstances make it clear who’s blocking his way—Mason—Stay goes full-court press in pursuit of Lainie.

Lainie doesn’t see Stay as relationship potential because she is blinded by her love for Mason. However, the more she learns about Stay, the more she comes to realize she never really knew him in the first place.

An unexplainable mystical connection evolves between Lainie and Stay and she has to choose between a man she so hopelessly loves and a man who offers her everything she needs.

I
slipped into the jacket and latched the repeating circles onto my wrist. The
bottom of the coat stopped just where the broad lines of the dress changed from
horizontal to vertical. “What do you think?” I asked Samantha.
“You
look stunning,” a deep male voice responded. I turned around and found Stay
smiling at me.
“Wow
Stay,” Sam said before I could respond. “Looking mighty handsome. If I didn’t
know any better, I’d think this is a date.”
Stayman
looked sharp in his black dress pants, matching coat, and dark-gray dress
shirt. I gazed at him but was at a loss for words. We stared at each other for
a second.
Sam
saved me by saying, “Stay, there’s a wire mannequin in the attic that I’d like
brought down, and Lane and I can’t lift it. I wondered if you could do that for
us. Not now. I wouldn’t want you to mess up your clothes, but—”
As
he removed his coat, he said, “It shouldn’t take long and I’ll just take off my
shirt.”
 He started unbuttoning as both Samantha
and I watched as he slowly revealed his chest. Stay slipped out of his shirt
and laid it neatly on top of his jacket.
His
smooth, lean torso was highly defined and I got caught staring at his chest. He
winked at me and then said to Sam, “Come on and show me the way.”
Once
they walked away, I glared into the mirror and said, “Don’t even think about
it.”
Minutes
later, he had managed to carry the mannequin down.
“Let’s
put it in the back,” I said, leading the way. “It needs to be cleaned up before
it can be out on the floor.” I showed him where to put it. Scanning his
physique from his head to his shoes, I noticed that he continued to let his
golden-brown hair grow in and chose to where black boots instead of dress
shoes. To make matters worse, his five o’clock shadow was incredibly sexy. Damn, he looks hot. Look away girl, just
look away!
 “Here,”
I said, holding out a lint roller, but not making eye contact.
Some
dust had settled on the front of his pants just over the zipper area. “You
don’t want to help?”
I
turned away and said, “Go get dressed.”
“Are
you sure that’s your final decision?”
“Very
sure.” My rapidly beating heart settled down once his clothing was back on.
“Are
you ready to go?” he asked.
“Let
me go grab my clothes bag and my clutch and I will be.” Sam followed me into my
office.
“He
looks hot!” she exclaimed. “He must really like you. I’ve never seen him
dressed up before.”
“Stop
it,” I said, making sure my dress lay straight.
“Forget
about MM for the night,” she said to me with a serious expression. She pulled
the tag off my jacket.
“That’s
not possible. Thanks for closing up and helping with the outfit.”
“No
problem.

Book Review : My Hunger by Lisa Renee Jones

From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, an Inside Out series e-short told from Mark’s point of view, as he battles his all-consuming desire for Crystal.

Devastated by Rebecca’s death, Mark is facing the chaos of the press and the police investigation alone, his reputation, his business, and even his freedom under threat. When a family emergency sends him back east to New York, he puts Crystal—who’s as capable as she is challenging—in charge of his San Francisco art gallery. A Master, all about control, right now he feels that he has none. With his secret sex club and his relationships of the past in the spotlight, Mark finds sanctuary in the one place he promised he would never be again—but cannot seem to resist. Crystal’s arms.

* I was provided an ARC through netgalley for review purposes*

If you have read any of the inside out series you have to read my hunger. My hunger is Mark Compton’s point of view on things. In If I were you we learn about Mark who is the owner of Riptide, a very prestigious art gallery. Mark was involved with Rebecca who went missing and we later find out had been murdered. Just how much was Mark involved with Rebecca ? Did Mark ever love Rebecca or did he just want Rebecca to be his submissive ?

Can Mark ever change his ways ? I often wonder if anyone is capable of changing him. In my Hunger we find out a little bit more about Crystal who works for Mark’s parents at Riptide in New York. Crystal brings out some sort of emotions out of Mark but can she change him or is she even trying to be with him….. you will have to read this short novella to find out what is going through Mark’s head.

If you haven’t read the inside out series I highly recommend that you do. This series has everything you might be looking for in a book. I love books that have mystery, drama, love , passion and a little bdsm doesn’t hurt ;)





What have you been up to ?

I was supposed to be recovering from eye surgery right about now,but instead I am trying to recover from this awful cough that just wont go away. I got sick about two days before my surgery was scheduled and the doctor decided to reschedule because he didn’t think it was good to have surgery while I was sick. Who knew that a cold could affect your eyes. I sure didn’t know that having mucus in your lungs can make your eyes sick too. I guess I can understand blowing my nose and constant coughing might put pressure in your eyes, but what I didn’t know was that having a cold might also give you mucus in your eyes. You learn something new everyday. I cannot wait until this cough from hell goes away.

So while I get better, I have been catching up on my reading and taking the kids to the playground and the movies and just trying to keep them as busy and as entertained as possible. What have you all been up to ? I cannot wait until its time for these kids to go back to school. It is super hard keeping them busy especially when they get bored so easily.

About TOO MUCH

In Lea Griffith’s Loveswept debut, a novel that’s perfect for erotic romance readers, two lovers who have shared exquisite pain and unforgettable bliss find solace back in each other’s arms.

Jeremiah Copeland and Daly Edwards have a history. Even though he grew up a criminal struggling to care for two younger siblings, and she’s the pampered daughter of a power-hungry senator, they formed a bond that nothing could break. Only a lack of trust ripped them apart.

Seven years later, Daly has reason to believe that Jeremiah’s brother is in trouble. She reaches out to Jeremiah the only way she knows how: at his BDSM club, The Underground. But one look ignites a heat she thought had cooled forever. As Jeremiah takes control of her body once again, Daly quickly loses control of her carefully rebuilt world. Too much has never been enough between them, and as danger swirls in the shadows, Jeremiah forces Daly to recognize what has never changed: She still loves him. His command is that she return her heart—and he will make her obey.

Domesticvixen’s Review: While I like romance novels, I also like a little action and drama to go along with my romance. Too Much delivers that and much more. I like books that capture my attention and keep me wanting to read more and more. I loved Too Much because I can easily understand how Daly felt. Love is wonderful, but it can also cause hurt and pain. How do we decide when or if we give love another chance ?

How do you heal yourself when you gave the other person all of you ? This adult story had me feeling some of the emotions Daly felt at the time. Is it possible to get over someone who you were so connected to ? I have often asked myself if it’s possible to let the one you love so much go and will the other person’s heart be breaking as much as yours. Long story short I loved this story and would recommend others to read it.

Lasik “enhancement” … has me nervous

I am scheduled to have Lasik “enhancement” which is a fancy word for surgery again. I had lasik surgery last year and while my right eye healed good and I was able to see good, my left eye had problems from the start. It took forever for the eye to heal and adjust. Even now my eyesight with the left eye is at 20/30 I believe. I have what is called ghosting or shadowing which means that words have a little shadow to them when I watch tv.

My eyesight wasn’t that good to drive at night,so I was prescribed some glasses to see at night and when using the computer or watching tv or reading. After wearing the glasses for a while my eyes started to get a little dependent on them. I have been wearing glasses for a month or two now and while the prescription is not that high it still bothers me that I am back to wearing glasses again. The eye doctor decided that enough time has passed for my eyes to settle and is going to re operate on my left eye. I think my right eye might need another surgery too since it has regressed a little.

I would be lying if I didn’t say that I am nervous as heck. I feel disappointed that I didn’t get the results I wanted the first time around. I really hope that this fixes the problem. Please pray and send good vibes my way.





Book Review: A chance for love Boxed set : Broken Build,Hidden under her heart,Knowing Vera

Chance for love : Boxed set of Dangerous romance : Broken Build, Hidden under her heart and knowing Vera Book Cover Chance for love : Boxed set of Dangerous romance : Broken Build, Hidden under her heart and knowing Vera

World Literary Press
E-book

Broken Build - Exciting Romantic Suspense/Technothriller set in Silicon Valley. A female engineer hides a horrible secret. Can she escape discovery, a killer, and a broken heart?

Hidden Under Her Heart - A heartfelt romance sizzling with controversy. A young nurse swears off *** to land a marrying man. But an unexpected pregnancy and a dark secret threaten her chance for true love.

Knowing Vera - Suspenseful romance, an unsolved murder, and love on the beach. A young woman seeks to prove her father innocent of murdering her boyfriend's mother.

One of my passions is reading. I love reading good books that are so expressive I feel like I am actually there witnessing everything that is going on. I love reading books that make me feel the emotions of the characters and that is exactly what I felt reading Rachelle Ayala’s books. The Chance for Love: Boxed Set of Dangerous Romance: (Broken Build, Hidden Under Her Heart, Knowing Vera) brings to you romance and danger, suspense as well as a happy ending.

In Broken Build you have Jen’s story. Jen’s life isn’t the best it could be and can’t help but wonder why all these bad things happen to Jen. You wonder will she get to be happy? Will she make things right ? I loved reading this story and couldn’t wait to get to the happy ending.

Hidden under her heart was quite touching for me. I felt quite emotional reading this story. I found it great for anyone dealing with difficult situations and having a guilty conscience about certain situations. Although it touched on certain strong mature ( rape ) subjects I still found it to be a great book.

Knowing Vera was alos a great read. They mystery behind Vera’s fathers death had me turning page after page to find out why her father decided to do what he did. I wanted to know if Vera was finally going to allow herself to be loved by someone and open up her heart to love too.

I loved all these full books. I am used to getting novella’s or short stories but these were full books in a boxed set!! If you order from Amazon these books are .99 cents right now. It is a great buy for full books. These stories are great and I love how they all tie into one another.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
