This Christmas has been a little hard because its the first holiday without my mother in law aka Grandma. I decided to host dinner and try to make the day a little more fun and a day of remembrance. Two of my kids had a nasty head cold, nephew was throwing up and I ended up getting the same head cold but pushed though it. Christmas morning arrived and I watched my husband open gifts I had research, hunted down and even contract a company in Japan. (They don’t Speak English and I do not speak Japanese. Thankfully for Language converter.) I opened a big pink Grandma Robe my husband says it looks warm. I was speechless. I mean I couldn’t even say one word because I was so shocked my husband would every think I would want something that my 97 year old grandma received for Christmas this year. (My sister bought her one.) He bought me lights for the bathroom, running shoes and a computer. As the day ended he asked me why I was so upset and I explained it was a grandma robe and he said it was I thought you might like it because you are always so cold. I cried. I cried because this was the very last item I would ever want. I might be turning 36 in a few weeks but I am not THAT OLD!
Yesterday I decided every night my husband comes home I will be wearing this ultra sexy robe. He couldn’t stop laughing as the kids told him I looked like a cuddle dumpling, and my personal favorite I look like a soft Elephant. (After all what women in her 30’s doesn’t want to be told she looks like a dumpling or better yet Elephant?) He add that I look like a stick of pink bubble gun as tears ran down his eyes. Than my husband said “You are going to use this for all its worth?” Since I lost my voice throughout the day so I could only smile and nod.
Yes every day he comes home from work I will be wearing my soft, pink cuddle robe with my grandma slippers he bought me before our first child.
So men NEVER buy this robe for your wife, girlfriend, or grandmother unless she is 97 years old and only cares about staying warm because Trust me you might never have sex again.
Title: Deadly Fallout
Author: Katie Reus
Stars 4 out of 5
Deadly Fallout is the 10th book in the Red Stone Security series. Since I am new to this series I was grateful to find I wasn’t lost with all the different characters and found myself interested in finding out more about the romance between the other characters.
Dr. Zoe Hansen worked as an ER doctor until another doctor couldn’t take no for an answer. She left not telling her family why and starts working for another medical practices where she was finally able to breathe until her stalker is murdered and she is arrested for the crime.
Former Navy Seal Sawyer McCabe joins Red Stone Security after retiring from the Navy Seals at the old age of 37. His first job is to watch Zoe’s back but soon find himself falling for the feisty doctor and decided to be able to keep her safe is to move her away from everyone she know and trust.
Deadly Fallout is a quick read with around 180 pages but from page one to page 180 you will be pulled into a hot fast romance with enough mystery to be called Romantic Suspense. The Author gives you a few twist and if you pay enough attention you will figure out who is the stalker when the person is introduced but at the same time the story moves forward keeping the reader engaged to find out the who and why. You find yourself caring for the people in Zoe’s life and grateful she is smart enough to know when to stay and when to move. I dislike the Romantic Suspense novels where you scream at the heroin who refuses to listen thankful Katie Reus writes Zoe who is strong but has a head on her shoulders.
What I felt the book was lacking was meat I personal desire in my Romantic Suspense novels with that being said this is a fast easy read to curl up on your couch for an afternoon. There is sex and more sex as well and language.

Title: The Job
Author: Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg
Stars 5 out of 5
Review: I started Fox and O’Hare Novels about eight months ago and enjoyed the first two novels. They reminded me of all the exciting movies and TV chase series I have seen. Fun, light with just enough action to keep the reader interested. The Job has got to be hands down the best in the series so far. I found myself laughing so many times I would read the passages out loud to anyone around me as I kept laughing. The interaction and development of Jake, Kate’s father, will have the readers nonstop laughing and you can’t help but love Jake. For example:
“Nick Grinned ‘Kate prefers a loaded gun next to her bed.’
‘Is that all?’ Jake asked Kate. ‘Where’s your hand grenade?’
‘I don’t have a hand grenade.’
‘What happened to the one I give you for Christmas?’
‘I forgot about that,” she said. “I guess it’s around the apartment somewhere.”
That interaction is just the beginning of the laughs you will have between Jake and Kate.
Nick is handsome and dashing as always and I hope that the next book dives deeper into why Nick is the way he is because so far he is slightly flat. I am looking for the history of Nick and we were given a small glance in this book.
I enjoyed that Kate seems to be growing as a character and the reader will wonder with her as she tries to figure out where she belongs in the world. You also get a glimpse into who Kate is and her past in the military. I can’t wait for more character development in the next book in the series.
The con is as brilliant as always but this time Kate seems to handle going against the law with a little more ease. I love the cast of characters and how each one interacts with Kate, Jake and Nick. Every characters has a purpose but sometimes you feel like they get a little throw away without a second thought just like the light fun crime shows.
