18 & Over Hop- the security book

18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!



Question of the Week:

Do you have a 'feel good' read or author that you go to whenever you're sick or feeling down?



Oh yeah. I have two authors I go to every time I'm feeling down. 


If I need a good laugh it's always Shelly Laurenston and her Pride series. Her shifters are hysterical and I love that they're not just your typical wolves but felines, bears and wild dogs too. I'm grinning just thinking about them. She's a fantastic writer and never fails to lift my spirits :)


My other comfort read is J.D. Robb and her In Death series. Eve, Roarke and all of the characters are like family at this point. Hell. I like them more than most of my family. 35 books in and I still love the series and getting lost in the mysteries/relationships. There's a real comfort in getting to visit them from time to time. 


What about yall? Who's your security read?

      Hope you LOVE the In Death books. I haven't done them on audio but man are they an excellent read. Roarke is completely swoonworthy.
