Welcome to Temptation (Dempsey's, #1)Welcome to Temptation by Jennifer Crusie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the past, I’d tried to read this book at least four or five times, but I never got far before I’d put it down and not pick it back up. A perennial DNF. But every time somebody asked for romance recommendations, WTT would top the list, especially if the person was asking for books to recommend to somebody new to the genre.

Spring break


At 3:16 pm, spring break commenced—nine days of way too much family bonding.

Since I already have my digital copy, I’m going to give away this shiny new paperback version.… Read More »
