Where My Tats At?  By Avery Flynn OK, I’m old. Not like old, old but old enough to remember when getting a tattoo was an act of bad-assery on par with a night in jail. At least in my family it was. So you can imagine that the first thing I did when I went off to college was to get a tattoo. A nice, green shamrock on the hip. I followed that up with a second trip to add a trio of daisies in a circle around it. My mother was less than amused. She rolled her eyes and told me to just wait until I saw what it looked like when I got pregnant. It hurts me to type this, but she was […]

Josie and Sam steam up the pages in the 3rd installment of The Layton Family Series by Avery Flynn and fans of contemporary romance with a little suspense edge will enjoy reading Passion Creek.  I’ve read the 2nd book, Seduction Creek (formally titled Dry Creek Bed) and we get a glance at Sam and Josie at the end but it’s not necessary to have read Seduction Creek to enjoy Passion Creek. But both books are good and I plan to go back and read book 1, Temptation Creek. Josie and Sam share a hot night in Vegas after she walks away from her job as a cocktail waitress where she hits one of her customers over the head for grabbing her breast. Josie noticed the […]
