It could go either way at this point, wrt Anita Blake style hogging of all the guys.

She does pass the Bechdel test, and she has a best girlfriend and several sisters with whom she is not in romantic rivalry. Her hot guy friend isn't at all into her and has a girlfriend. I think the only supe other than Raphael that's actually really into her is Illium and he'd probably be into a lot of people, frankly. I have a strong suspicion that Dmitri has an offstage thing going on with Holly Chang - that survivor of the bad guy's massacres from book 1. He's assigned to watch her and occasionally has commentary on her. I don't think Jason or Venom are attracted to her at all. WRT Venom, sometimes when you act like you can't stand someone and think they're nothing but trouble for your boss it's because you can't stand them and you think they're nothing but trouble for your boss.

She does throw in a lot of stuff that cranks the mind toward thinking about things that might go on that we don't see. How does Galen know Deacon and does he actually have a thing for him? This is the way to keep my attention!

She totally needs to drop her Psy series and just concentrate on this one and crank these puppies out.

Yes, I've finished #2 and there are only like 6 more! Get crackin'!

I'm afraid I don't care what the deal is with Raphael's mother (c'mon, mother issues? done), but I'm very interested in Jason's past. And Deacon's groupie.

WTF are they called? I have Angel's Blood, Archangel's Kiss, and Archangel's Consort.

Isn't that it?

My Kindle has lied to me.

I went to look for the names, and while it tells me there are "8 books in the series" it seems to be including every one of her books not in a different named series.

So the only other one is the prequel. Consort was published in December, so it will be forever till there are any more.

Need new prolific trash-writer, dammit.

I reviewed the thread and am not seeing confirmation that you've read the Fever series, Inchy.

YOU HAVE RIGHT?

Just got the JR Ward Angel series, haven't started. I just went back and read some Lisa Kleypas that I'd missed since I don't keep up with her anymore. She wins her romantic arguments. The most important argument in romance is always "Why these two people?" She does well with that argument.

Well, I've read the 1st 2 books. I was sorting of hating the 2nd one but I don't remember why. I think it was because I couldn't decide whether to commit to Barron or not, and the flip-to-the-last-page-and-look method failed me.

So, if I re-engage, will I be sorry? More importantly, will anyone still be willing to talk about the series or will I be forced to re-read old threads and pretend I was participating, just like the lunchroom in middle school?

If you don't finish those books you are going to get kicked out of the trashy book club.

Read them!
We had a huge thread going on about this but don't read it or you will get spoilers.

So THAT'S what it was. I thought my chest felt tight for a while there. I chalked it up to perimenopause. That's where everything goes, now.

Jericho Z. Barrons... How do I begin to explain Jericho Barrons?

Jericho Barrons is flawless.

I hear his hair's insured for $10,000.

I hear he does car commercials...in Japan.

His favorite movie is Varsity Blues.

One time he met John Stamos on a plane...And he told Barrons he was pretty.

One time Barrons punched me in the face...it was awesome.

Inchy would you be willing to set up some sort of webcam aimed at you preferred pointed toward your reading area so I can watch you read Barrons? In addition to being creepy, it would help me enormously.

I am laughing hysterically. I have no idea why. "In addition to being creepy" has completely set me off and I am laughing that weird laugh you laugh when you're alone. You know, the "huhr huhr huhr" one.

I'm so glad I can blame perimenopause for these things. Long may she reign!

I have yet to receive the IP for that webcam.

Just be sure you have it set up by the time you get to book 4.

I LIKE TO WATCH.

We'll just put it on chatroulette and then guys from Russia can watch us read it while they try to show us their dicks.
