Like most things in my life, my reading journey proceeds in a convoluted and undirected fashion. The reading cut ends up being about 75% romance, 25% everything else.
Almost all of the books will have been supplied by the publisher in return for an honest review.

Seeing is Believing by Erin McCarthy

I saw a review for this book on Book Binge that intrigued me. Unfortunately, I hadn't read the first two books in the series and I think that was a handicap. Also, the line editor did not do a very good job. There were at least three different instances where I was pulled out of the story as I puzzled over what a sentence could mean. Also, it had a LOT more sex than the cutesy cover might lead you to believe. Like, from page one. Maybe two.
So, Piper Tucker, former bald-headed waif who was dumped on her father's driveway, is now all groweds up and babysitting for her friend's eight-year-olds twins. And who comes a-knocking on the door, needing a place to stay while he regroups from a recent layoff? Why, it's her childhood crush, Brady Stritmeyer. And there's immediate lust. Immediate.
I was disappointed that there wasn't more interaction with the psychic connection that Piper had with the ghosts. And that story, as well as the story of Brady exploring his new place in the world, now that he was laide off, were laid aside for so much of the sexxing. It was a fun story but not as much character development as there could have been.
