Rodrigo (aka Go) and Nyla

Fun Fact: This book  features some diversity! Nyla is black and Rodirigo (aka Go) is Latino.


Nyla’s pregnant with her dead, ex-boyfriend’s baby.


(Have I mentioned that I ❤ New Girl, especially Coach?!)

Go’s the brother of said brother and he decides to claim the baby as his own in order to spare his family the heartache (?) of knowing that he cheated with Nyla.

Something Unexpected by Tressie Lockwood | Review

9658573


A one night stand in a limo with her boss’s son had consequences Zacari didn’t count on. But when she had been trying to get over finding her cheating ex-boyfriend in bed with her best friend, Keary seemed to be just what she needed to exercise her demons and satisfy a sexual void she never knew she had. Keary O’Connor didn’t care what Zacari’s motives were the night she wouldn’t take no for an answer. What red-blooded man could turn down a seductress with smooth tawny-colored skin and a body he couldn’t get out of his head? He had to have her, and he wanted her again. His only problem now was in convincing her that he would not be like her ex, and what he wanted went beyond the physical and would last a lifetime.


*Disclaimer: This review will be different from non-erotic novels.*

I actually read this because the movie (which was horrible, BTW), and I was disappointed. I know this is an erotic novel, and I know I’m not the biggest fan of erotica, but this was just bad. There was a lot of sex and zero plot (nil)! The two leads (I totally forgot their names and I’m to lazy to look so….general titles will have to suffice), literally, never talk.

Our heroine, after finding her man in bed with her best friend, decides to get drunk and sleep with her boss’s son once he offers her a ride home. This would be the point where I say, “Hot damn, chivalry ain’t dead!” but, sadly, I cannot. Here’s my problem with our male lead:

Recommendation | The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy #1) by Douglas Adams

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last fifteen years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

Together this dynamic pair begin a journey through space aided by quotes from The Hitchhiker’s Guide (“A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have”) and a galaxy-full of fellow travelers: Zaphod Beeblebrox–the two-headed, three-armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian, Zaphod’s girlfriend (formally Tricia McMillan), whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin, a paranoid, brilliant, and chronically depressed robot; Veet Voojagig, a former graduate student who is obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years.

Where are these pens? Why are we born? Why do we die? Why do we spend so much time between wearing digital watches? For all the answers stick your thumb to the stars. And don’t forget to bring a towel!

Book-to-Movie/TV show adaptation

Dexter is a television series featuring a serial killer named, Dexter. Yep, congratulations America you’ve finally done it. So, Dexter is a very dark comedy, thriller that alters our perception of right and wrong. Ultimately, Dexter is a serial killer, however, we love him. He only kills according to a code that insures innocents lives are not taken – what the heck have you done lately (hehe). Throughout the show (which ending sucks BTW, sorta spoilery) we’re taken through the internal and external conflict of Dexter working for law enforcement, yet, being a serious criminal. This series is based on the Dexter Series by Jeff Lindsay.
