I want it NOW! I wanted an iPad in the US, but I still wasn’t prepared to shell out $499 for the pleasure of owning one. Now the Kindle Fire at $199 is way better!

No doubt here in good old England we’ll be the last to get it. Bummer.

We’re Leaving On A Jet Plane…

Posted in: Leaving on a jet plane

This post was written on the 13th July, in anticipation of our holiday to Miami and the Florida Keys in September. By the time it posts, we’ll be on the plane, en-route to two weeks of bliss hopefully.  I’m also hoping that by the time this posts, I’ll still be pregnant. It’s early days, so there’s no point telling anybody just yet. The funny thing is, by the time our hols comes round, I’ll have probably forgotten that I wrote this post in the first place.

Oh well, be good whilst I’m gone, and if TTG lets me, I may tweet some pictures. Ciao for now!

TTG and I are off to Miami next week, and although I’ve made a list of things to do, none of them seem that exciting. Is there any place that you guys can recommend? Any fun parks etc?

Ahh, another blast from the past. I don’t know what it is, but I’m on a massive re-reading binge at the moment. I first read Dee Tenorio’s Betting Hearts in 2006, how amazing is that? Where has the time gone?

Anyway, I still enjoyed this book as much as I did the first time.

Without further ado, here’s the blurb

When Cassandra bishop’s ex-fiance shows up with the prerequisite, blonde haired, big boobed bimbo in tow, and announces that he’s getting married, she’s absolutely gobsmacked. Not because she’s still in love with him, but because, he broke their engagement a year ago, after telling her that he was gay.
Things go from bad to worse, when bastard ex-fiance tells cassandra, that the real reason he broke up with her was because she wasn’t woman enough for him. The swine!

Cassandra being the fiery tempered broad that she is, decides to rearrange his well-placed nose.

Devastated by this revelation, Cassie gets drunk as a skunk, and ends up at her best friend, Burke Halifax’s house at stupid o’clock. A ritual which Burke has long become familiar with.

For the past twenty-two years, Burke has made it his life’s work to make sure that nobody hurts Cassie. She’s the best friend he’s got, and he’ll be damned if a snivelling little fuckwit like bastard-ex-fiance is gonna hurt his friend.

Things start to get out of hand when bef issues a wedding invitation to cassie, out of spite.

Burke foolishly bets Cassie’s prized car that she’ll be the hottest woman at bastard-ex-fiance and big boobed bimbo’s wedding. Cassie herself is determined to prove that she is woman enough for any man, least of all her BEF, and thus the make-over of one Cassandra Bishop begins, with a few mishaps along the way, to keep things interesting.

Will burke and Cassie finally work out that they float each other’s boat, or will they keep looking for love in all the wrong places?

My Verdict

I. Loved. This. Book. (more…)

Out of curiosity, I wandered over to author, Madison Haye’s website and found this message:

Except for a handful of big names, authors don’t make that much money. The recent explosion of pirate and file sharing sites has made it even more difficult to make a living as a writer. I am fortunate that I have a second career to fall back on. Alors, I have returned to my old job. Taking into account my current work load, I doubt I will finish another story.

…but it was fun while it lasted!

It made me a bit sad, I haven’t bought any of her books for years, however, she was one of the first EC authors I ever read.

I hate discovering that an author has gone back to her day job. Well, unless she’s Carol Lynne of course. *Jokes*
