much sums up my feelings for that guy. Keane is really one of the most
self-centered guys I encountered lately. It almost made me give up
reading “Ball Peen Hammer” by Lauren Row.
then I stumbled across the line that this book is meant as a romantic
comedy and I thought “Maybe, just maybe I AM taking this to serious?” –
so could it be that I just need to see it from a different angle ? and
with this idea in mind it worked out better.
still think I will never get this strange naming of the characters nor
am I sure I really want to (even if they explain it) – sorry but “Hannah
Banana Montana Milliken”? that’s just a tat to much for my liking even
in a comedy.
– once I got over my hang up in looking at it different I could relate
better to the story and I really felt sorry at times for Maddy. Keane is
the perfect guy for a whiplash – it’s a wonder she did not kick him to
the curb at certain times during that plot.
I guess the author wrote a really beautiful annoying character
(#me-laughing) But still – I can not bring myself to give this book more stars because even if it was a comedy Keane felt more like a
teenager than an adult.
was my first book by this author so I can not yet judge if this author
is not working out for me or if it is just this book. Therefore I will
surely try with another book again if a blurb sounds interesting enough
this is just my very personal opinion and it might also be a case of
“its you not me” or “me being the odd one out here” – so please judge
for yourself and enjoy this book

What’s left when perfection is gone?
Perfection slipped through Caroline Spencer’s fingers. One moment she had it all, and then it was gone. All she has left are her memories, her pain, and her close friends.
And Mason Ryan was not part of her plan–wasn’t even on her radar. After all, he was her husband’s best friend. But now that her husband is gone, he’s the only person who understands her, feels what she feels, and knows her inside and out.
Together, they try to rearrange the shattered pieces of their pain.
Sharing their grief pulls them closer together–closer than either of them want to admit and Mason won’t allow himself to fall for his best friend’s widow. Ultimately, he’s holding the one secret that will destroy Caroline–a secret he cannot even bear himself.
Will they find a way to refresh their lives when the pain of the past won’t dissolve?
“What?” I burst out laughing.
“Now listen to me. Sex and Mason are like desserts. There are many sides of Mason and sex consists of different positions all of this like dessert. You see a dessert case and there’s everything from fruit tarts to red velvet cake to brownies.”
“I’m getting hungry now, thanks.”
“Oh shut up,” Tonya laughs and continues with her ridiculous explanation. “These two things go hand in hand. So you can take your time and look at these yummy desserts the way you look at Mason and sex and then when you’re ready you’ll pick the best most delicious dessert and boom, you and Mason will be having boom boom time.”
“I can’t even with you.” I laugh and wipe my tears from laughing so hard. “You’re too much.”

27 year old Kat Larson is haunted by demons. Literally. And how was
she to know that there was more than one type of demon? The Evils want
to destroy her soul, while billionaire Sentinel demon, Zachary Winston,
claims that he wants to protect her. Kat opts for Zach’s protection…but
it doesn’t come without a price. It requires a demon bargain…and what he

agreement with a curvy, plain redheaded woman like her?

to complete. As a Sentinel demon, his task is to protect Kat from the
Evils that will corrupt her soul. His only problem is that she is his

lush, full figured body and kind, compassionate heart. As Zach becomes
more and more enchanted with Kat, he’s hoping she can learn to love a
lonely man/demon that’s only slightly wicked.
