Oh yeah. Figured that title would get your attention. 😆 Monday evening, I was looking for something to read. I had books arriving on my Kindle on Tuesday–books I couldn’t wait to dive into, but I had a few hours to kill, and hopefully fall asleep. I have some short contest entries to read but I wasn’t in the mood. I wanted something I could sink my teeth into but that I could put down to read new stuff and then come back to. Want to guess what I downloaded from my Kindle library? You get three guesses and the first two don’t count. Of course it was JD Robb’s NAKED IN DEATH. I ❤ that book like damn and whoah! And yes, I share snippits from it. A lot. But tough. Here’s more. FYI, these are just random lines that caught my eye during various rereads of the book.
Broadway was noisy and crowded, a party where rowdy guests never left.
She scanned the building first, fifty floors of gleaming metal that knife into the sky from a hilt of concrete.
The sun was bright as a sword but the air had the snapping bite of a petulant child.
His voice was smooth, with a whisper of the charm of Ireland over it, like rich cream over warmed whiskey.

Okay. I’ll stop. I have pages of these marked on my Fire. Someday, I’ll quote the scene where Roarke reveals the button. Even thinking about it chokes me up until I’m all full of AWWwwwwWWWWwwwwWWWWW. *sniffle* Awwww! And yes, I still want to be LaNora/JD when I grow up!
So, readers. Tell me. If you had four hours to read, what book would you pick up? What book would be your automatic go to, no matter how many times you’ve read it?
