I mean a romance with a police cadet and a nothing serious kinda girl sounds like there is going to be a lot of humor, romance, and drama. The story starts out like I expected but as it went on it became exceedingly romantic. I was not […]

Review: Mary Poser by Angel A

The first thing I must say is I love the play on words for this title. Spanish for butterfly: Mariposa and the Title: Mary Poser.  Too cute!

She comes from a religious family with her father being the local Pastor. Her background has led her to be […]
