Adria Picks: Twenty Thoughts I've Thought When Encountering Stupid People

Okay so I’m a compulsive list maker. I have lists for EVERYTHING all over the place. Some of my lists are funny or straight up weird so I thought Why not share them?. Maybe they’ll be good for a laugh.

Now I know that Broke and Bookish has Top Ten Tuesday but the difference between theirs and mine is that I’ve had most of these lists for a while and most of them are WAY over 10 things.

This Week’s List: The snarkiest things that I have ever thought when encountering Stupid People.

Warning: This list is not for the humorless. Seriously, if you find this list offensive maybe you need to get off the internet.

You KNOW you’ve encountered The Stupid at least 10 times in your life. Or in my case, the week. Social “etiquette” prevents most of us from saying what we really think when faced with Stupid. Unless of course the level of Stupid is so high it voids any semblance of politeness and the snark just comes shooting out of your mouth like a laser beam.

Review: Playing with Trouble by Joya Ryan

Normally I enjoy the heck out of Joya Ryan's books but this one just fell flat for me. In all honesty it had to do with the heroine. Didn't like her at all.

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review.)
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Release Date: March 21, 2017

Recently divorced, Laura Baughman is taking her life back. After a decade away, she’s returning to Yachats, Oregon—the small town she couldn’t wait to leave after graduation—to take over her late mother’s beloved flower shop. Yet once she arrives, Laura discovers the store has been neglected and her father has partnered in construction with Jake Lock. The once-scrawny high school band geek is now successful—and irresistibly sexy—and set to inherit her family’s business. That is, unless Laura can prove in the next thirty days that she has what it takes to run the company.

Despite the heat between Jake and Laura, romance is out of the question. After her last disastrous relationship, Laura has sworn off men—especially one bent on crushing her dreams. That’s just fine with Jake, who thinks the gorgeous blonde is a pain in the neck…though admittedly one he’d like to put his lips all over.

Jake has a proposal to mix business with pleasure. But when a deal goes south, Laura is ready to pack up and skip town all over again. Does he have what it takes to convince her to stay?

Review: The Daring Duke by Jess Michaels

The first in a TEN book series and it's setting a high bar in my opinion!

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. )
Publisher: The Passionate Pen
Release Date: March 14, 2017

The wild and charismatic Duke of Abernathe is the kind of friend anyone would wish to have. He even formed the 1797 Club, consisting of ten men who would all be dukes. But he has full-throatedly declared he will never marry and no one understands why.

But Miss Emma Liston doesn’t care why. A longtime wallflower with an absentee father who is a scandal waiting to happen, she needs to marry. Now. She decides to take a wild chance and ask the help of her friend Meg’s brother James. She asks him to pretend he’s interested in her just long enough to gain the attention of others. He agrees but is quickly taken aback by how easy everything is with Emma.

When her father returns, threatening her with a terrible future, their courtship swiftly becomes all too real. Will James ever reveal the true man beneath the outer shell? And can Emma discover her own worthiness before it’s too late?

Author Interview: Cindy Dorminy!

Good morning everyone! Today I have author Cindy Dorminy on the blog to talk about her book, Left Hanging. It sounds like it could take a reader on one heck of a ride!

About Cindy:
After several decades of writing medical research documents, Cindy decided to switch gears and write stories where the chances of happy endings are 100% and the side effects include satisfied sighs, permanent smiles, and a chuckle or two. She writes romance novels with a slice of humor that range from historical romance to southern fried romantic comedies. Her young adult debut novel, Tuned Into You (BookFish Books) was released in June 2016.

Cindy was born in Texas and raised in Georgia. She received her Bachelor’s Degree from Kennesaw State University and her Master’s Degree from The University of Georgia. Cindy enjoys gardening, reading, bodybuilding and a whole bunch of movies. She can be overheard quoting lines from her favorite movies… a lot. But her favorite pastime is spending time with Mark, her bass playing husband, Maddie Rose, the coolest girl on the planet, and fur child Daisy Mae.

She currently resides in Nashville, TN where live music can be heard everywhere, even at the grocery store.

My furkids.
Adria: Hi Cindy! Welcome to my little space on the internet!

I hear you have a fur baby named Daisy Mae. I love fur children, I have four, three cats (Clockwise from left: Spencer, Amelia, and Orion) and a silly dog named Hayley Bean. Care to share a photo of your fur baby? 

Daisy Mae. Isn't she a cutie pie????
 Cindy: Hi Spencer, Amelia, Orion, and Hayley. Daisy says “Hey y’all / woof.”

Daisy is such a love bug. We got her at the Nashville Humane Association when she was a year old. 

Daisy Mae is a Chihuahua mixed with various other breeds. When people ask us what kind of dog she is, we reply, “She’s a Daisy Dog because we don’t have a clue what she is. She’s eleven now.

Review: Make Me Beg by Rebecca Brooks + Interview

Have I mentioned how much I like a dirty talker? Well not only did I get the chance to review Make Me Beg but author Rebecca Brooks is answering a few of my questions today!

But first, a little about Rebecca herself:

Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them.

She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.

She likes outdoorsy guys with both muscle and heart and independent women ready to try something new.

Adria: Hi Rebecca! Welcome to my little space on the internet! Tell me a little about yourself, what do you like to do when you’re not writing super sexy romance novels?
Hi Adria! Thank you so much for having me! I definitely spend most of my time dreaming up sexy situations, haha. But when I’m not working on a new book, you can probably find me out and about walking around NYC, where I live, or else traveling somewhere in the US or around the globe. I love hiking, skiing, and travel—although I’m also pretty happy curling up at home with a good book or something on Netflix. I’m currently catching up on both The Americans and Jane the Virgin.
