Sandra Brown is still cranking them out!

 It has been many years since I have read any of Sandra Brown’s books. I mean decades. However, because I’m boycotting TV I picked a couple of her books up recently. Saying that I’m boycotting TV is really saying a lot. Normally I watch a lot of movies and Netflix but since January, I have been reading in my leisure time. The lighter the content the better. So, I’m catching up on Sandra Brown.

 

I started with reading Friction. It had a decent story line but more importantly I found it relaxing to read  rather than watching the news. Right now, I’m reading Sting. Sting caught my attention because the book jacket said the main male character is a hitman. He’s the hottie of the story, most of the time his character is the hero, but in Sting, so far he is looking like a criminal. I’m sure Sandra is going to throw a twist in there somewhere. If she is going to surprise me I haven’t figured out how yet. If not, I don’t think I can wrap my mind around rooting for a killer. I don’t care how much of a honey he is, I don’t want to see him romance the savvy businesswoman.

Anyway, Sandra Brown is one of the better-known romance writers and I’m sure she knows what she is doing. I hope so because I was planning to read Mean Streak next or maybe I’ll be ready for a good nonfiction.

Maybe the next 4 years won’t be so long after all! I just finished Sting and there are a couple of surprises. One I never expected but it was a zinger!
