Azteclady Review: Sam's Creed by Sarah McCarty

This month’s TBR Challenge theme is catching up with a series. Well, I just had the right book languishing in my humongous TBR mountain range. It’s been nigh on four years since I read and reviewed Caine’s Reckoning, and almost as long has Sam’s Creed been languishing on the shelves, unread.

Sam’s Creed, by Sarah McCarty.

A disclaimer, I think, applies here. This is an erotic romance. Not only is there sex in this book, there is quite graphic sex and quite a bit of it, with plenty of graphic language to go along with it.

I’m aware that this blog has needed a massive redesign for ages, however some of the prices for redesigns are out of my blog budget. Can you guys recommend somebody who does blog designs in their spare time? Cheap being the operative word here.

I need somebody who’s obviously fluent in WordPress code, in a way that I neither have the time nor the inclination to be, and somebody who’s pretty creative too would be helpful:)

If you or somebody you know wants to offer their services, you can email me at hairylemony @ gmail.com (without the spaces. Seriously, why do I have to even type that bit out??)

Thanks muchly!
