Long absences

It's amazing how much one person's death can affect your daily life. Even when that person wasn't someone you saw often. My dad passed on June 8th from a one year and ten day battle with esophageal cancer. It has taken me over two months to get myself back to a place where I feel relatively human.

Book Review: Scarlet Stilettos

Scarlet Stilettos by Ash Penn My rating: 4 of 5 stars Laine Lawson and Tony Barton are best mates, their friendship forged from a one night stand. Laine has declared herself celibate. Tony has met a man who meets all of his needs. But Will isn't all he seems, especially when he discovers Laine isn't all she seems, either. When Laine takes an abrupt holiday and Will moves in with Tony, all hell breaks loose for the pair of them. Tony learns more about Will than he really wanted to know. Laine makes a mess of her family and has a heart to heart with Adam, her ex who literally tossed her out into the street like garbage. All this while hiding her feelings for her best friend. Tony gets in over his head in Laine's absence. Can she come back and save the day? This book needs trigger warnings for domestic violence. I wasn't expecting it and at points I had to put the book down. Minus: My personal feeling is there is nothing sexy about the word saliva. Every time I read it
