I'm A Book Shark

Freelance copyeditor to all amazing self-published and independent authors. Check out my editing page for more information. <3 Mickey is the blogger behind I’m A Book Shark. She really wishes there was a better explanation for why she’s a book shark. A new twitter name was needed, and it had to be about her favorite hobby: reading! For whatever reason, sharks also came to mind, and a book shark was born. Besides reading, Mickey is a natural reddish-headed, late-twenties, tattooed, entertainment-of-all-kinds lover, wife of husband, mother of reptiles (and a cat and two puppies, all spoiled), student, employee, boss, and (mostly) raw vegan. Oh yeah, and she likes to blog. www.imabookshark.com

Not The Marrying Kind - Nicola Marsh See full review here!

Nicola Marsh has done it again - with less food this time, thankfully. It was all I could do not to gnaw my arm off with hunger while reading her previous novel, Busted in Bollywood. This novel is charming, sexy, and just plain HOT. I enjoyed every page of this romantic story! It wasn't on the schedule yet, but I'm so glad I pushed it up. :o)

So Poppy needs to help her sister's business, and Beck needs to help his own. They meet for what ends up being mutual benefit and enter a marriage for their respective businesses. Makes sense, right? HA! Anyway, it's pretty predictable but totally enjoyable nonetheless. I liked the tension and the game they played going back and forth with their feelings. I would hope that nothing like this happens in real life even though it's totally romantic in a completely unromantic way. I'm looking forward to whatever Nicola Marsh writes next!
