Play (Stage Dive #2) by Kylie Scott Review

Play (Stage Dive, #2)
~~~~SYNOPSIS~~~~

Kylie Scott returns with the highly anticipated follow-up to international bestseller LICK.

Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast—at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl.

Anne Rollins never thought she’d ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls—especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn’t end well. No matter how hot he is. Or could it?

~~~~REVIEW~~~~

***ARC provided Via Netgalley in exchange for an honest opinion***

Jointly reviewed by Nancy (Casperfitz) and Silvana, another winner and we had a blast reading this novel.

Seriously this is one of these books that leaves the reader with a big smile and a light heart, even hours after they put it down. A funny, romantic and utterly captivating tale with two of the most adorable protagonists, Anne and Mal were an absolute pleasure to read; The author managed to create great chemistry and a solid connection between these two.

We read about Mal in book 1 Lick and he was one of the most endearing characters, so glad to see that the author managed to pair him with an equally endearing and strong woman like Anne who gave him balance. Their relationship starts out as a game but quickly turns into a funny and romantic courtship.

Being in Anne’s head was an absolute hoot! What a wonderful female lead, she was not whiny, weak or broken in-spite of her awful childhood, on the contrary she was stronger because of it.  She had her fears and insecurities, but she didn’t let her past dictate her path in life. Her ways in dealing/reacting towards  Mal were perfect.

Mal, oh what can we say about Mal , an absolute sweetheart, one of the funniest and hottest male heroes. God the dorky things that came out of his mouth were hilarious.

He just made us laugh from start to finish.

We loved  reading about Mal through Anne’s eyes, and how we glimpsed a depth and intensity to him, despite the nonchalant facade he likes to show to the outside world.

Kylie Scott managed to create the most wonderfully satisfying supporting characters, each fascinating in their own way.  Well maybe Reece was an annoying pest at times but he didn’t make you feel like you want to throw your kindle against the wall. Can’t wait for Ben and Jimmy stories, these two grow on you in book 2.

One thing we liked about this book  are the family dynamics, Mal and his family had a wonderful, touching relationship. Anne was the most wonderful older sister, protective and loving.  The friendship between the four members is so strong and love how they have each other’s backs, they acted more like brothers.

A brilliant and superbly written book… made us laugh so hard, tear-up some,  and laugh some more. We HIGHLY recommend.

Book Title: Take Two
Author: Laurelin Paige
Release Date: February 4, 2014
Publisher: Samhain Publishing

Summary: He’s ready for his close up, but she’s the one calling the shots.On the night of her graduation from film school, straight-laced Maddie Bauers fell completely out of character for an oh-my-god make-out session with a perfect stranger. Complete with the big O.Seven years later, that romantic interlude is still fresh in her mind. That stranger is now a rich and famous actor. And she’s one very distracted camera assistant working on his latest production. She might consider another tryst…if he even remembers her.Micah Preston does indeed remember Maddie. Too bad he’s sworn off Hollywood relationships. He allows himself as much sex as he likes—and oh, he does like—but anything more is asking for trouble. For the woman, not for him. Yet knowing Maddie could want more than a movie-set fling doesn’t stop him from pursuing her like a moth drawn to hot stage lights.But as the shoot nears its end, it’s decision time. Is it time to call, “Cut!” on their affair, or is there enough material for a sequel?

Warning: Contains a dreamy movie star hero, a focus-pulling heroine, off-the-charts instant chemistry, steamy sex in near-public locations, and a new use for lip gloss.

4.5 SWEET STARS!

fotor0205220548

I have to start this by saying how much I enjoyed the heroine in this book, she was sweet and strong! This book had it all, it was a fast steamy and fun read, had angst though not too much of it and this remained a lighthearted romance throughout- Add to all of that great writing by the talented Laurelin Paige. I loved that it didn’t drag and there were no unnecessary drama just to fill pages.

What I loved about this book:

  • Maddie! As I said before I love me a strong heroine that doesn’t spend most of the book wallowing in self-pity and plagued with doubt. While Maddie did have her doubts, they were extremely warranted.
  • The sexual chemistry between Micah and Maddie and how their relationship developed. I always enjoy a book couple whose relationship I feel emotionally invested in.
  • Micah’s bodyguard Fudge/Chris, loved him as he was one of the funniest and sweetest characters.

What I disliked

  • Micah’s stubbornness and his refusal to acknowledge his true feelings For Maddie! Was very angry with him a few times, however when he finally acknowledged his feelings, I fell in love with him as well!
  • Beaumant, he was an ass, wanted Maddie’s success to be rubbed in his face.

The winner of Best Director was giving his award speech. And it wasn’t Beaumont. This night’s getting better and better.”

  • Lack of epilogue, would loved to have seen how Micah and Maddie deal with his fame and the success she achieves as a film maker.

I totally recommend this book, it’s something I believe many would enjoy!

Laurelin Paige

USA Today Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She is represented by the wonderful Bob Diforio of D4EO Literary Agency.

Rome CoverTitle: Rome (Marked Men #3)
Author: Jay Crownover
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date: January 7, 2014
Publisher: William Morrow an imprint of HarperCollins Publishing
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.

Synopsis

Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon.

Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .

I’m supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I’m an natural redhead even though I haven’t seen my real hair color in years, I’m a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I’ve been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that.
I love to write, love to read and all I’m interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.

✨🌟 CasperFitz’s Review🌟✨

★★★✩ Rome Stars!

This is the third book of the series “Marked Men”, the first being Rule, whose story left a big impression on me. Now it’s Rome, Rule’s brother. He is a military man who is dealing with tragic events that happened to him while at war causing nightmares, he deals with the real world by being a complete jerk and now it is his turn to fall in love.

Rome – I just wanted to bury my head in the sand and go back to a point in time that felt comfortable and familiar. I hated feeling like a visitor in my own life, and no matter what I told myself when I woke up in the morning each day, I couldn’t shake feeling like everything I had come back to after my contract with the army was up was a life that belonged to someone else. My family didn’t feel right. The new dynamic in my relationship with Rule didn’t feel right. Trying to get used to Shaw being taken care of by my wayward and reckless little brother didn’t feel right. Crashing with Nash while I tried to get my shit straight didn’t feel right. Not having a job lined up or any clear direction of how to support myself doing something other than fighting a war quite possibly felt the most wrong out of it all.


And I couldn’t have picked a way better girl for him than Cora, she is feisty and definitely fearless and fun!!!! She has issues, but she didn’t dwell on them for  long.

Rome started off a little bit dull, with his grumpy self, didn’t make him very likeable but you couldn’t help but love him .  Fortunately his character did a turnaround 50% through the book.  An all out alpha, who knows what he has going for him and is totally committed.

I didn’t get their connection at first… then everything seems to just happen so fast that you cannot help rooting for them and to find their HEA.

The story is a bit slow but consistent. And like all the other 2 books before this, it has its own angsty twist near the end that brought me to tears. However nothing stands in the way of true love, life isn’t perfect but their love is!

Cora-” I see all of it, Rome, and whatever it ends up looking like is already perfect. This”– I put my hand over his heart and made sure he could feel me squeeze him from the inside– “is as perfect as it gets.  You’re my guy, no one else does to me or for me what you do, and that’s all there is to it.  I didn’t know what perfect meant until you.”
“My turn to save him” That’s what we did. We saved each other. He forced me to see the living in fear got me nowhere and that holding out for some unobtainable ideal of perfection was just silly. I made him realize that whoever he wanted to be and whatever he chose to do was enough. He didn’t have to be anything anymore. He wasn’t perfect, I wasn’t perfect, but the love we had for each other….nothing was more perfect than that. 

It is well written and as for the hot factor, it will not disappoint, it is definitely hot!

~*~*~*~SYNOPSIS~*~*~*~

“For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction.”

For every choice you make there are rewards, 

or there are consequences.

It was my choice to walk away the first time.

And my choice to chase her the second.

But sometimes you don’t get a choice, 

and all you get are the consequences.

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, 

while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

Unless that someone is Logan Matthews. 

Because loving him didn’t give me 

the strength to walk away.

It didn’t give me 

the courage to fight for him.

And when it was over,

all it gave me was a broken heart.

He kissed me once, softly. ” I want to feel everywhere he’s felt. I want to replace the memory of his touch with mine. I don’t want a single part of your body to no know my hands, do you understand?” His voice was low, husky, filled with desire.

My eyes drifted shut at his words. A sound of agreement leaves my mouth. He started kissing my jaw. “Has he kissed you here?” he whispered, his words muffled.

I nodded.

His lips moved from my jaw and worked their way down to my neck, kissing, licking, and slightly sucking. I could fell his hard-on against my stomach. One of the his hands moved to cup the back of my head, his finger curled into my hair, softly pulling and tilting my head back to give him better access.

I moaned.

His other hand moved under my shirt, the back of his fingers skimming my stomach before I felt him grip my side, just under my breast. I wasn’t wearing a bra.

He released his grip on my hair just enough that my head fell forward; he kissed me again, just once. Then I felt his thumb rub against my already straining nipple. He made a moaning sound from deep in his throat, pushing into me. “Has he touched here?”

I nodded again.

He replaced his thumb with his hand, covering my entire breast, gently squeezing.

“Oh my God,” I whispered. My chest heaved with every breath. My legs squeezed together trying to find some form of relief.

His other hand moved from my head, to under my shirt and onto my bare back. Then he started to slide it lower, and lower, slowly making it’s way under my panties and onto my ass.

“Fucking shit, ” he spat out, grabbing a handful. “Please don’t tell me he’s touched you here?”

I kept quiet.

“Fuck.” He knew the meaning of my silence.

This time it’s Logan’s story! Logan who though he loved Mickey but is seriously attracted to Amanda! The story started with flashbacks from when Logan first met Amanda….

~*~*~*~SYNOPSIS~*~*~*~

***** Mature Content, Sexual Situations, Adult Situations, Strong Language *****

She found him on a snowy night. He sparked her desires and inflamed her dreams.

Independent and feisty, Shea Madison has a tussle on her hands. Living in and loving her quiet little corner of Montana, she’s fiercely determined to fight a real estate developer trying to turn her quaint little mountain town into a touristy ski resort. So, when an outsider shows up to study the effects on the area, she instantly attempts to sway his impression… even if it means a little harmless flirting with the enticing visitor.

Rhys Weland’s charade has one purpose—to bring the locals around to the idea of the resort, primarily the ringleader, Ms. Shea Madison. Embroiled in his deception, he’s stunned by the feelings she draws from deep inside him. Her integrity and sincerity quickly have him second-guessing his twisted morals. Her spirit arouses his soul. Her sensuality steals his breath.

In the dark of the night, in the warmth of the fire, the passion smoldering between them combusts. But just when it all seems to make sense, one small stubborn mistake shreds the fragile bond between them. Will an impetuous act reignite their flame, or will their love vanish like sparks in the air?

🌹 MY REVIEW 🌹

★★★★ SEXY STARS!!!!
Rhys Weland works on a multi-million dollar development firm as an architect but who also charms and screws his way through resistance to the company’s projects. Now he is being sent to  a little town called Snowcreek to charm and screw Shea Madison, a feisty and independent woman, who made it her mission to keep their project out!

Rhys pictured Shea to be a lumberjack woman, with hairy upper lips and big buck teeth and unibrow…. but what he found was a beautiful, curvy little, hazel-eyed, foul-mouthed angel.

This is a sexy, hot, funny, romantic novel that is beautifully written, with just a little angst around the climax of the story.

Rhys definitely doesn’t play nice and you’ll grow to love him. Shea might be a little bit of a potty mouth but she’s got her head planted firmly on her shoulders,  she’s real and I love her independence.

Sex was hot, though the “F” word is spoken like really a lot and the banter between the two was enjoyable!

~*~*~*~EXCERPT~*~*~*~

Excerpt from Chapter 13 – The Dinner Rhys knitted his brow thoughtfully as their waitress came over to get their order. Shea looked up and muttered a very unladylike, “Aw, shit,” at the young girl who appeared at the table. Rhys looked up. Hmm, she looked relatively familiar. He’d met her at the store, and again at the bar. What was her name? Brittany? No, wait… Trinity. And her eyes were wide as she took in the sight of Shea and Rhys at the table before her. “Um, hey… Shea…” and turning to Rhys, she flushed deeply. “Rhys… You guys are, like… on a date or something?” Shea groaned and planted her forehead in her palm, causing Rhys to smile. “Um, yeah… took me a while, but I finally talked her into dinner. Gotta feed her now and then, you know. I can’t just keep her tied to the bed all the time.” Shea’s head shot up in shock, and Trinity looked as though she was about to faint. “Shea,” Rhys continued as though he hadn’t just said anything remotely scintillating, “do you know what you’d like?” He looked over at her stunned expression. “New York steak or filet mignon? Or, what’s the special tonight?” “Um…” Trinity gasped, “Prime rib.” “Sounds good to me. How about you, sweetheart?” he grinned back over at her. She was still stunned, but he could see a flicker of anger beginning to burn in her eyes. God, she was fun to rile up. “Prime rib is fine,” she said shortly. “And a Glacier Select Ale, please. No glass…” Rhys nodded at her selection of the local microbrew. “Same for me, please.” He shot Trinity a smile as she rushed off to the kitchen. “Why are you always doing that to me?” Shea demanded as soon as the young girl had left their table. “Is it like your goal in life to mortify me in front of that girl?” Rhys chuckled and reached across the table for her hand, smoothing his fingertips over her painted nails. Remembering how these hands had clenched against his shoulders, tangled in his hair, stroked his cock. Beautiful little hands. “Honestly?” “No, I want you to lie to me,” Shea sarcastically ground out. “What the fuck? Yes, honestly.” “I love to see your eyes sparkle like they do when you get all feisty. The flush in your cheeks.” His voice lowered. “The way you draw in a deep breath and it pushes your tits out so beautifully. You’re incredibly sexy when you’re mad.”

~*~*~*~AUTHOR BIO~*~*~*~

Sibylla Matilde Author

Sibylla Matilde grew up in the mountain valleys of Southwest Montana exploring the dusty Old West gold country on the back of a horse. She attended a two-room schoolhouse beginning in 1st grade & had the same teacher until she changed schools after 7th. Beginning at about age 12, Sibylla discovered historical romance, feeding off of work of Jude Deveraux & Lisa Kleypas. She loves a book that can make the reader run the gamut of emotions, from the sweet glow of new love to gut-wrenching heartache. She is a true romantic & always has stories floating around in her head, living in a fantasyland until she writes them down to free them.

Music is her emotional trigger. Growing up with a Wagnarian-loving mother, Sibylla was raised to treasure music that digs deep into the psyche, drawing out elation, sorrow, grief, desire. The soundtrack to her life includes many genres spanning centuries. She looooooooves Thirty Seconds to Mars (rather obsessively, actually… but, really, how can you NOT be crazy about this guy!? Jared Leto. Shhh. ) & pimps them out to all her friends through Spotify. She also delights in Met Opera HD broadcasts at her local movie theater & hopes (listening Met?) to someday see Diana Damrau reprise her role as Mozart’s Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte.

Sibylla lives with her husband and hero who saved her from her own calamitous, young-adult self. He makes her laugh daily, even when things are tough. He’s proved to her that love really can heal a shattered soul. In 18 years, they have never had a fight, although argue regularly with their two teenage kids who have, unfortunately, inherited their father’s quick wit (unfortunate as it is a quick wit that Sibylla, herself, definitely does not possess – there is a reason she is a writer & not a stand-up comedian). They live a quiet life with their two weird little rescued Chiweenies. Wait… teenagers & little yap-dogs? OK, maybe not so quiet. Social Media Links

~*~*~*~BUY LINKS~*~*~*~

~*~*~*~SYNOPSIS~*~*~*~

This book is book one in a three part series, so not all matters are resolved at the end of the novel. It is also meant for ages 18+ due to yummy adult content ;)  

Happily ever after doesn’t exist. Not just in the romantic sense, but in the sense that there will never be a point in life that will contain no more obstacles. 

Josie Sommers is a nerdy twenty four year old, elementary school teacher who has always considered herself a strong person. But with the loss of a loved one and the return of someone she vowed to never see again, her strength starts to break. 

When he betrayed her in the ultimate way, she never thought she would let him back into her life, let alone open herself up to falling back in love with him. 
Plagued
with resentment and the burden of her own dishonesty, Josie has to decide if forgiving and coming clean is worth the risk of losing him again. With so many hurdles, we know that Josie’s story is no fairytale. 

That’s a promise.

~*~*~*~EXCERPT~*~*~*~

“You are gorgeous, as always, Josie.” He turned me around and brought his lips to mine. He kissed me slowly, and I could feel myself getting heated. He grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the bed. I was a little embarrassed when he started undressing us, unable to believe that I agreed to do something so risqué. He position me in a particular way, and went back to his cameras to make sure his shot was right and to set up timers on them.

“Okay, don’t think about the cameras,” he said, coming back to me. He started sucking on my neck as his hands roamed my thighs, stomach, and then my chest. I tried to ignore the cameras and focused on his tongue and mouth on me.

He brought one of my breasts into his mouth and sucked on my hard nipple. His tongue always knew how to make my body feel good. Click. I moved my hands into his shaggy sandy blonde hair, and arched my back, needing more of him. Click. Seth aligned his chest with mine, and went back to assault my neck as I moved my hands to rub his shoulders and arms.  Click. His other hand that wasn’t fondling my breast, moved its way in between my legs, and rubbed me. I gasped at the feeling of increased pressure on my clit. Click.

His fingers really were magical. It didn’t take me long before both the pressure of his mouth on my neck and breasts and the rubbing of his fingers against me, made me come. Click.

“So sexy,” he whispered, before putting on the condom he had ready on the bed. His eyes were hooded with desire. He positioned himself in front of me and moved my long hair in a way that covered my breasts. Click. He eased inside of me gently, and then pulled back out fast. Click. He teased me like that for a while, as I whimpered with need. I decided to sit up and grab onto his back, nearly clawing him to finally give me what I needed. I started to raise my hips to his at a better rhythm, loving the small whimper that came out of his mouth.

~*~*~*~OUR LOVELY EHN’S ( ALSO KNOWN AS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKZ) REVIEW~*~*~*~

4 STARS

“Life is all about CHOICES.”

Thank you for the advance reader copy of That’s A Promise, this is the 1st book of Ms.Victoria Klahr. I love to discover new authors and their works because they bring new excitement to the readers.

The story is about Josie Sommers who loves to read and study so she is like a nerdy heroine. She has a very strong personality and a little hot tempered a good friend and a daughter. Seems life for her is perfect, but destiny has a different plan for her. With the loss of a loved one and the return of someone she vowed to never see again, her strength starts to break…
The story tackles a very sensitive subject that most women experience nowadays, the scar that it will leave is not just on the outside but on the inside, it will crush you and your soul. But Josie is strong enough to surpass the obstacle with the help of her parents, her best friend Seth, and the love of her life, Blake.

Blake for me is the good guy, easily to fall in love with but I love Seth more he is mysterious, much appealing persona, tough on the outside soft in the inside. And on the other hand you will love and hate Josie’s character because of the choices she made, but it makes her more human because the emotions are raw and authentic.

The story is well written, just some typo errors on the names. The challenge for me is the past and present scenarios I’m not really a fan of it. Maybe it would be better if the story is narrated from the past going to the present instead of bouncing back and forth so the story will flow smoothly. And it is very predictable I knew from the start what Blake’s secret hold is. But I enjoy reading the story; it shows the reality of life. The essence of loving someone and the importance of acceptance. Sometimes the choices that we made will ruin or save us. And real life situation is not a fairytale.

I’m TEAM SETH by the way if you are curious why, add this to your TBR list (^o^)
Congrats on your 1st book! Kudos!

Rhys Weland’s charade has one purpose—to bring the locals around to the idea of the resort, primarily the ringleader, Ms. Shea Madison. Embroiled in his deception, he’s stunned by the feelings she draws from deep inside him. Her integrity and sincerity quickly have him second-guessing his twisted morals. Her spirit arouses his soul. Her sensuality steals his breath.

In the dark of the night, in the warmth of the fire, the passion smoldering between them combusts. But just when it all seems to make sense, one small stubborn mistake shreds the fragile bond between them. Will an impetuous act reignite their flame, or will their love vanish like sparks in the air?

~*~*~*~Q&A with Shea~*~*~*~

• If you were an animal, what would you be and why? A marmot… They just kinda hang out on sunny rocks and don’t seem to get too excited about anything. Plus they live in some beautiful country.

• What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten? Michelle once did this weird kiwi thing where she buried a bunch of food with hot rocks. It was good, but I had to get past the fact that she buried the food.

• What’s the worst thing you did as a kid? Grampa was teaching me to fish. He baited my hook and said “throw it in” so I did…pole and everything.

• What do you do to have fun? Depends on the season… spring, summer and fall, I hike. Winter, I snuggle.

• Tell us something you hate doing. Why? I hate wearing heels. I feel totally off-kilter, and it isn’t a feeling I enjoy.

• What’s your pet peeve? Stupid tourists.

• Have you even been in jail? Uhhhhhhhh….

• Were you ever drunk? Only at very inopportune times, it would appear.

• Name one thing that drives you crazy. Rhys… every day. But I love it.

Sibylla Matilde Author

Sibylla Matilde grew up in the mountain valleys of Southwest Montana exploring the dusty Old West gold country on the back of a horse. She attended a two-room schoolhouse beginning in 1st grade & had the same teacher until she changed schools after 7th. Beginning at about age 12, Sibylla discovered historical romance, feeding off of work of Jude Deveraux & Lisa Kleypas. She loves a book that can make the reader run the gamut of emotions, from the sweet glow of new love to gut-wrenching heartache. She is a true romantic & always has stories floating around in her head, living in a fantasyland until she writes them down to free them.

Music is her emotional trigger. Growing up with a Wagnarian-loving mother, Sibylla was raised to treasure music that digs deep into the psyche, drawing out elation, sorrow, grief, desire. The soundtrack to her life includes many genres spanning centuries. She looooooooves Thirty Seconds to Mars (rather obsessively, actually… but, really, how can you NOT be crazy about this guy!? Jared Leto. Shhh. ) & pimps them out to all her friends through Spotify. She also delights in Met Opera HD broadcasts at her local movie theater & hopes (listening Met?) to someday see Diana Damrau reprise her role as Mozart’s Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte.

Sibylla lives with her husband and hero who saved her from her own calamitous, young-adult self. He makes her laugh daily, even when things are tough. He’s proved to her that love really can heal a shattered soul. In 18 years, they have never had a fight, although argue regularly with their two teenage kids who have, unfortunately, inherited their father’s quick wit (unfortunate as it is a quick wit that Sibylla, herself, definitely does not possess – there is a reason she is a writer & not a stand-up comedian). They live a quiet life with their two weird little rescued Chiweenies. Wait… teenagers & little yap-dogs? OK, maybe not so quiet. Social Media Links
