Blogger Blackout – Kaetrin’s Musings is offline until 27 October

a black and white photograph of white noise with the words "Blogger Blackout. Because Stalking is not okay" underneath.

Here’s why: The Importance of Pseudonymous Activity  with added extra Storify and also this: Poisoning the Well and a really interesting examination of the history of it all here at Alex Hurst’s blog.

For a list of blogs participating in the blackout and the various ways they are doing it, go to Book Thingo’s post here. Kat also has some great pieces on the Hale story, which I also recommend reading.

Rocky Mountain Rebel by Vivian Arend, narrated by Tatiana Sokolov

Rocky Mountain RebelWhy I read it:  This is one from my personal library.

What it’s about: (from Goodreads)  Vicki Hansol made different choices than her less-than-reputable mom and sister, yet her fiery temper has left her branded with the same town-bad-girl label. When she desperately needs a change of scenery, her get-out-of-town-free ticket arrives—and requires that she face down one of her deepest fears.

Easygoing Joel Coleman has nothing to complain about, but he’s never really done anything to brag about either. The youngest member of the Six Pack Ranch is looking to make some changes in his life that include stepping out from under his twin brother’s shadow.

So when the bold beauty with the smart mouth approaches him with a proposition, Joel is intrigued. Her request for him to teach her to ride soon takes on a whole new meaning. All that passion in his arms, his bed, in the barn . . . hell, anywhere he can get it? Bring it on.

But tangling the sheets leads to unanticipated complications, and by the time the dust settles, everything family means is going to be challenged.

What worked for me (and what didn’t):  I do like those Coleman boys.  *fans self*  Joel and Jesse are the twins in the family, with Joel the younger by about 30 minutes.  In previous books, we have seen Joel and Jesse “double teaming” various happy, consenting girls but Joel is finding he wants to step out of that now that they’ve finished college.  He wants to have a girlfriend rather than just hookups and he doesn’t want to share with Jesse anymore.
