Pretty much the best book ever

So it turns out that my new library is very good about ordering books that people request. Which is nice. It's just too bad that people don't have better taste.

I processed a new paperback today that had been requested by a male patron. It’s about a Navajo FBI agent who, according to the back jacket blurb, is “strong-willed, dynamic, a born hunter.” The book is entitled Black Mesa and is part of the American Heroes: Against All Odds series.

I went to write my cool librarian information on the title page and saw this tantalizing intro:

His kiss was soft at first, neither urging nor coaxing. Her heart leapt to life and a slow tendril of heat began to wind its way through her. . . .

With a groan, he pulled her even closer. His mouth smothered hers, a raw urgency tugging at his restraint. She moaned softly.

“Tell me you need me, schoolteacher, as much as I need you,” he said in a husky voice. “Say it.”

She had just started to answer when a loud thump shattered the moment.

“What the--" Justin moved to one side and saw a fireball arc across the sky toward them.


Okay, Awesome.

We've got sex, FBI agents, naughty schoolteachers, and fireballs. Something for everyone! Several people stared at me when I burst out laughing there at the end.

Hey Desmama, if you want me to put this one on hold for you I totally will.

Just for that, I'm going to tell the book club that THAT'S your suggestion for next month's book.

Fine, BE like that. Now I won't give you the book after all. And you'll never know what happens with Agent Justin and the schoolteacher.

Is this a Danielle Steele novel? And does the cover illustrate a half naked man, hair blowing in the wind, saving some damsel in distress?

Nice......some soft porn at the library.

My only question: Why didn't you title this post "Tell me you need me, schoolteacher" ? Bwah!

I don't think that man in the book has much respect for women. I am surprised the local Logan women aren't up in arms over this novel. He bosses her and doesn't call her by her first name. I wish he would've gotten hit by that fireball.

Maybe he does get hit with that fireball. I mean, the passage ends with the fireball arcing across the sky, right? The suspense is killing me!

Too bad I don't live near you; I could be the first one to check it out of the library. This sounds like a book I've just got to read.

Nemesis said... [reply]

Bwah hah! Sakhmet, you kill me. Clearly you should have been in charge of this post.
