Since she had boxes and mail to pick up at the Bat Cave, I saw the Lil' Sis yesterday. She brought with her the copy of In Too Deep by Portia Da Costa I loaned her to read, complete with the threatening Post-It Note I put on the cover telling her I would skin her alive if anything "bad" happened to my shiny, beautiful, pristine, OCD-looking autographed copy. I'm happy to report she returned it unharmed.
Warning: Minor spoiler in this conversation involving one of the hawt scenes in the book. It doesn't give away any major plot point, but if you want to know nothing - consider this your warning. You can read the full non-spoiler Super Librarian review here.
Lil' Sis: You were right. I read it in like 2 hours.
Me: So...what did you think?
Lil' Sis: I was sort of surprised it was published by Black Lace. I mean, it wasn't slutty at all!
Me: LOL - Yeah, that's why I said on my blog it would be a good book for newbies to erotica.
Lil' Sis: Yeah, I mean I figured since it was Black Lace, the librarian would have been banging everybody to try and figure out who Nemesis was. The IT guy, the other librarian, some of the library patrons, the Professor.....
Me: ::trying not to laugh hysterically while driving down busy So. Cal. freeway:: And that scene where she "takes herself in hand" (edited for blog content - I was more crude in real life) she would have thrown open the curtains and let the neighbors watch!
Lil' Sis: And then opened the window to yell to the whole neighborhood they should come on over!
::More giggling ensues::
Me: So did you like it?
Lil' Sis: Yeah, I liked it quite a bit. OMG, that scene where the Professor is "taking himself in hand" (edited for blog content - my sister was more crude in real life) and Gwendolyn spies on him? OMG - hottest scene ever! I kept waiting for him to turn around and catch her watching him! OMG - hot, hot, hot!
Me: I know! That was my favorite scene too!
Lil' Sis: I agree with your blog review. Definitely not erotica. This one is definitely an erotic romance. Gotta be sure to add that romance in there.
Me: Well, I'm glad you liked it.
Lil' Sis: I did. Thanks for loaning it to me!
