Book Review: Snowed In

snowedinSnowed In begins with Maureen getting broken up with by her boyfriend – while she is naked!  She ends up at the supermarket looking at the ice cream and breaks down crying.  It is then when she meets Gavin – who flirts and tries to cheer her up a bit because she is too beautiful to be crying. They share a kiss and Maureen ends up avoiding the grocery store for two weeks.

When she returns to the grocery store she is crying once again – only this time she bumps into Pippa, who happens to be neighbors with Gavin and who has gotten a ride there with him.  Maureen and Gavin reconnect and despite a storm coming, they make plans to go on a date that night.

They end up snowed in at Gavin’s place – and everything is going great – until… there’s a twist that I’m not telling you about!

This book restored my faith in romance novels. I had decided I was going to not read anymore after I had caught up on what needed to be read in my queue after reading a few that were really, really bad. However, Snowed In made me reconsider this.  It was short, which I always love, and it was to the point (probably since it was so short) and I enjoyed the characters and the storyline. It was realistic and enjoyable.

About the Book

There’s nothing like a hot kiss on a cold day

Librarian Maureen O’ Connell might have predicated she’d find herself crying into the ice cream cast at the supermarket after a bad breakup, but she definitely never imagined that a guy hot enough to melt the Rocky Road would flirt with her right there in the freezer aisle. Only Gavin Fraser isn’t a fantasy, he’s a mouth-watering new flavor.

When a freak snowstorm strands Maureen at Gavin’s after just one date, it’s a perfect excuse for something a lot steamier than hot chocolate in front of the fire. It’s definitely lust. Can it also be love?

Book Review: Sex, Drugs and Rock N Roll


Sex, Drugs and Rock N Roll explains the science of hedonism and the hedonism of science. It is an interesting look at Sex (18 write ups), Drugs (15) write ups and rock n roll (26 write ups) from a science perspective. I wasn’t really sure what to make of it, but it was interesting and strange all at the same time. I mean – stories about testicle implants? Spiders making webs on various types of drugs, some history thrown in for good measure, research ta shows music and drugs can tickle he same neural networks, drugs influence on music, we are born to sing, and much, much more.

If you’re into science and learning more about sex, drugs and rock n roll in a scientific way, then this is the book for you.  There’s also a handy index if there are just certain items you’re looking to learn more about!

About the Book

The book went SUPER into depth about one drug specifically: Weed AKA cannabis… this drug was raved about non stop in the book for its healing properties and how much it helped the mental health of the anyone taking it. It seemed to be the drug of choice for the rockstars and anyone else in between. Cannabis was just all the rave with the rock and roll community in the 70s. No matter how you put it weed is definitely up there in terms of what type of drug you want to take and how you want to take it theres just so many ways.

Full of noise and color, Sex, Drugs, and Rock ’n’ Roll looks at scientists and their craft, how hedonistic impulses inform our highest pursuits, and how the renegades of science have illuminated the secrets of our deepest impulses. It is a fascinating tale of scientists on the edge, experimenting on themselves and others, that asks the big (and strange) questions about what it means to be human, about consciousness and happiness, the future and past of our species, our scientific knowledge, and our culture. Not to mention our parties. It will pull you in and gross you out, but it never loses sight of the stories, ideas, and scientific discoveries that make sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll so timeless.
