Currently Reading: Finished Rebound by Kellie Kamryn this morning while at the dentist office. LOVED it! Definite Recommended Read! It's an awesome love story about two people caught up in their own ambitions and not being in the same place at the same time, until Fate throws them together again. Definitely pick this up as well as the sequel, The Perfect Score. I was on Ch 4 when my Kindle batteries died. Can't wait to continue! Click the SCP button to the right and search for it!

But I could be wrong; I mean, I still find myself skipping over the sex scenes in other books I'm reading. So what about you? Did the above, 3-line sex scene satisfy you, or do you want more description? Depending on what editor I get when this is accepted, she's either going to suggest I add more to it, or scold me for leaving her wanting more.
Go ahead; leave me your opinion. And feel free to laugh about me yada-yada-ing the sex while reading!
