Finally remembered to take a picture of us a Book Club! Yay for us! See? We really do exist! Heh.
Sitting: Roxie, Me & via Skype: Mamakitty — Middle Row: Tina & WendyK — Back Row: Tonya, Jennifer & Kiara
We tried something new tonight. One of the new members joined us via Skype as she’s not a local NC lady. She lives in Texas. It was so great meeting a “new” member this way!
First Book of the Month discussion was a huge success!! Our next read will be DREAMS OF A DARK WARRIOR by Kresley Cole. I have been assured that this one works just fine as a stand-alone as I haven’t read any of the books in this series yet. I’ve already told WendyK if she’s steered me wrong, I might have to hurt her because she knows how anal I am about reading in order. Feel twitchy when I start a series mid-way.

Football pro Mick Riley is an all-star, both on the field and in the bedroom. But a sexy, determinedly single mom just might be the one to throw him off his game…
For years Mick has been taking full advantage of the life available to a pro athlete: fame, fortune, and a different girl in every city. But when he meets and beds confident, beautiful event planner Tara Lincoln, he wants much more than the typical one-night stand. Too bad Tara’s not interested in getting to know football’s most notorious playboy any better.
As the single mother of a teenage son, the last thing Tara needs is the jet-set lifestyle of Mick Riley; even though their steamy and passionate one-night stand was unforgettable. Tara’s life is complicated enough without being thrust into the spotlight as Mick’s latest girl du jour. Tara played the game of love once and lost big, and she doesn’t intend to put herself out there again, especially with a heartbreaker like Mick.
But when Mick sets his mind to win, nothing will stop him. And he has the perfect play in mind.
Confession time: I’m in ♥ with this cover. I have mad ♥ for it. Mad ♥.
Moving on before I keep gazing at the cover…. *g*
My local book club will turn three years old this August. From the very beginning we’ve been a pretty laid-back book club. Laid-back in that we don’t have just “one” book we read and discuss. We discuss any and all books we’ve read in the time we haven’t met. It’s been great so far. At every meeting we all bring the books and/or our e-readers and gush or complain about this book or that book accordingly. This year we’re trying something different. We’ve decided to do what we usually do but in addition, we now have “Book Club Picks of the Month”. Our first pick? Yes, you guessed it. It’s this lovely book.
Although, I will admit it wasn’t hard to convince the ladies in my group to make this our first club read and I’m really looking forward to Friday night when we meet so we can all dish about the book. I can’t begin to tell you how much I love my book club. The ladies in it have made my Fridays for the past (almost!) three years. Bring on Friday night!
