Conversing with my heroine

Shannon: Why are you being such a :censor:?

Olivia: You didn’t tell me before I had sex with the guy that he was dead!

Shannon: I didn’t know he was dead then. And he’s not really dead now. Just undead.

Olivia: I liked it better when he was un-undead.

Shannon: Whatever. But I can’t let you go back to Boston. You’re going to :censor: live Happily Ever After even if I have to staple your ass to the page.

THEN I get it home, and it’s part of a freaking series, and is it the first one?
