The website Seriously Reviewed has taken a gander at Redeeming Stanley. Here’s what they think. (Odd–the lady/dog thing provoked a lot of discussion at the Walla Faces Women and Wine reading group I visited tonight. We all decided we liked the dog. A lot.)
But on to Seriously Reviewed’s review:
Blurb: Not your average romance novel!
Annie’s sick of settling for cleaning up after the messes of her hapless boyfriend, Weldon, so when she gets an inheritance she sets off for greener pastures. Now she’s confronted with her grandmother’s ghost, a manor full of dependents, a pack of hell-hounds and a gardener who might just be the man of her dreams.
Meanwhile, Angela’s convinced her brand of love could turn life around for the seedy man living down the street, if only she could get him away from the floozy living next door. But the old gods are waking up again and she might just get the surprise of her life.
Warning: this book requires a wicked sense of humor!
Review: What ever you do DO NOT ignore the warning 🙂 If you are not pretty open minded, if you don’t have a slightly twisted sense of humor then I have to say this story might not be for you.
For Me though, OMG, what a trippy, interesting, wickedly wild story 🙂 Somehow I missed the WARNING when I snagged this one so when I first started it, My Mouth Dropped! But oh how I kept going 🙂 And I am so glad I did.
Weldon? He sucks. Total grade A butt munch of the highest order, no doubt. I got sucked into his and Annie’s story. Then you have Stan and Angela. Oh yeah, that is a story all on it’s own, but the way Bodie twined them together….SWEET!
Now, if you are a bit faint of heart I must tell you that there is reference to….a woman making it with a dog. Reference hell, Grandma admits it. However, I have to say that the dog…well he used to be a human but is now trapped in his doggie body. Ehh, I could roll with it because of the tone of the entire story and the fact that there was no depiction. 🙂
The Independent Entity? Oh I laughed so hard. Wanna know what I am talking about? Now you know I can’t spoil it 🙂
Thanks to the folks over at Seriously Reviewed for looking Redeeming Stanley over, and saying what they think. You can check out more of their reviews here. Or, you can just bite the bullet and buy a copy of Redeeming Stanley of your very own here, and join the discussion. Tell us what you think, and as long as it’s within the bounds of good taste (and believe me, that’s a very elastic boundary around here), we’ll print it.
