Welcome to another week of bookish fun.  Join in with those who celebrate Mailbox Monday, hosted in December by Suko’s Notebook; and What Are You Reading?, hosted by Book Journey.

MAILBOX MONDAY:

No books came in the mail, but I downloaded an e-book to Sparky.  Yay!

IOU Sex, by Sandra Nachlinger and Sandra Allen

11702032

Best friends June, Kiki, and Peggy graduated from Dallas’s Rayburn High School—all of them still virgins. After all, they were good girls. Years later, when the three women read June’s high school diary, they joke about the sexual frustration they caused their steady boyfriends back then. That’s when Kiki makes a startling statement. “When you think about it, and I’m only trying to be fair, we owe those guys sex.”
With bawdy jabs and tipsy laughter, they vow to track down their old boyfriends and just DO IT, which is something they definitely did not do back in high school.
Lives intertwined, the three friends share their quest with sexy, poignant, and sometimes hilarious results. Is each woman’s sexual IOU paid in full? Will everyone get what he or she deserves? Or is this just another one of Kiki’s crazy ideas?

I loved every book I read this week, and the nice eclectic mix made it a memorable one.

    • I know that when I can plan it that way, the week is better. Sometimes that leaves all the difficult ones just waiting….and then I have to rely on Mt. TBR Challenges. Thanks for visiting, Lucy…enjoy your week.

    • Thanks, Kaye…and right back at you! I, too, love Vincenzi, and while her books are long, they never seem to be. I’ll be reading Windfall on Sparky, which is much less hefty! lol

      I think IOU Sex will be fun. Enjoy your week!
