I’m about as sheltered as they come – VERY strict upbringing and reading romance novels in my childhood home was practically forbidden.
Then I became a rebel.
I was the kid checking out trashy romance novels on the Bookmobile when it drove through my neighborhood. I’d carry a satchel for my books and treasures, and at night, made sure I had batteries in my… flashlight. (Get your head out of the gutter!)
Midnight hours flew by and 2 a.m. would roll around within what seemed like minutes. Steamy romance novels filled my head with all sorts of allusion of what it would be like to be a sexy grown-up. That was then, and this is now. I find myself doing the same thing with Richard’s book only I have kids playing in the background. So I’m hiding so I can concentrate on reading! I’ve been under the comforter most nights, reading Richard Verry’s title, “The Taste of Honey” and calling out from under there saying “go ask Daddy” and returning promptly to my hot and steamy read.
I actually enjoyed Richard’s book very much, from beginning to end. His books were a bit of a stretch for my usual taste but I’m glad I delved in and had a read. Right now I’m finishing up “Broken Steele”. Have YOU read Richard’s books yet?
