Mia Appleby finally has the life she always wanted. She’s escaped her trailer trash childhood
and built a nice life for herself with a marketing job and a cute, little condo. But no matter how much baggage she’s ditched from her past, she still hasn’t managed to shake her greatest weakness-men. So when her new neighbor turns out to be single and oh-so-sexy,
Mia’s worried she’s playing with fire . . .

Kevin McKnight can’t get enough of his gorgeous neighbor, but after one amazing night, she’s already
showing him the door. Something tells him this is the way she handles most men. But Kevin is far from your average guy-and he’s ready to prove it to Mia. When a blast from her past shakes up Mia’s life in a major way, will she stick with her self-sufficient
solo act . . . or take a chance leaning on Kevin’s strong shoulders?


The kiss started out sweet, soft, but cranked to intense quickly, a hot, deep, wet connection
that reminded her that their bodies knew each other, craved each other like air, and that being this close was inviting the inexplicable maelstrom that occurred every time she let him put his hands on her. She stopped thinking then, just let herself feel,
starting with the pure sensation of his solid, hard-muscled body against hers and ending with the heat of his mouth as he deepened the kiss.

He put his hands on her now, in her hair, holding her face, then with a groan glided them down
her body, touching everything he could as he trapped her between the hard desk and his tough body. He stroked her breasts, then slid his hands beneath her clothes to warm her flesh with his hands, and the simmer burst into flames.

When he finally pulled back, she was grateful to have the desk behind her holding her up, because
he’d just decimated her, burst right through her every single defense with one simple kiss.

Simple? Ha! She’d never been kissed, so thoroughly, so deliberately, so absolutely fully.

He staggered back a step himself, looking surprised and just as shaky. “There,” he said in a voice
low and ragged and satisfyingly hoarse. “You’re finally speechless. I like you that way.”

She stared at him, let out a sound of disgust, and pushed past him to the door. “You’re an ass.”

She slammed the door behind her, a gaffe that surely announced in a scream how he
affected her, but she couldn’t seem to help it. No more,
she told herself. No more. She was Mia Appleby, ad exec,
queen of her world, and no one made her crazy. She kept her cool at all times.

Book Review: Behind the Albergue Door: Inspiration Agony Adventure on the Camino de Santiago

albergueDean is back with another great travel book – this time about the Camino de Santiago hike he and his wife did last fall. (You may remember his previous book, Random Acts of Travel which I had previously reviewed)  While I love to travel, I’m not physically able to hike, so I will have to live vicariously through Dean on this one.

I loved that they have little passport books and you can get stamps along the way on the hike.  It’s kind of like a real-life foursquare and I’m sure if I was there I’d be on a mission to get all the stamps I could… and in turn probably all the blisters I could as well.

Dean gives tips on what to pack and what not to pack if you’re thinking about doing the hike yourself.  Lots of useful tips from someone who has done it before.  And he even gives you some pick up lines you might want to use (or not!) if you find yourself looking for love with a fellow pilgrim while on your trip.

Dean also creates a handful of people who write about their travels on the Camino hike.  He also then has real reports from some real people he met on the hike as well.  I think I liked the made up ones more. (They were emails home – and one was a twitter feed. Funny!)

The book is a bit of fact, fiction and exaggeration. And of course the writing style that I came to know and love on his last book is still there.  It was a fun read and I think whether you are planning to do the hike or not, you’ll find this book interesting and humorous.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

The Camino de Santiago – an 800 kilometre hike across Northern Spain spanning two mountain ranges, one barren wasteland, four different provinces and, most daunting of all, five weeks sharing dorm rooms with exhausted snorers, and bathrooms with enthusiastic wine drinkers. The whole concept sounds absurd and unbearable. But Dean and his wife did it anyway, and nothing was more surprising than how much they enjoyed it. The camaraderie, the sense of community, the satisfaction that accompanied each day’s debilitating fatigue. Fascinating, excruciating, inspirational, interminable – they are already making plans to tackle it again.

Behind the Albergue Door is the perfect primer for anyone considering hiking the Camino, a stroll down memory lane for those who have already hiked it, and simply a riotous travel chronicle for everyone else. Join Johnston and friends on their hilarious journey of fun and fellowship, pain and suffering, nature and culture, with just enough practical advice thrown in to make you think about starting a pilgrimage of your own…
