I have got to be outta my Fricking Mind!!!!

Okay, you ask What could Gigi possibly have done again? Well simply I hosted the Easter Family dinner at my house. Why you ask? after the lovely psycho Thanksgiving one I had here. I'm still trying to come up with the answer to that one, who knows maybe I'm a gluten for punishment, or I just have a really hard time saying NO!! I'm getting better at it but still if I'm not prepared for the asking I cave every time. One of the reasons hubs & I moved was because both of our families are very controlling, extremely nosy, and always have to give their opinions since we can do nothing right in either sides eyes. So with 17 people at my house I decided to skip traditional dinner and since it was warm grill out hamburgers & hotdogs needless to say that started the craziness that became our first sin of the day, I also invited my best friend along for the thrill ride she's just like me so the sarcasm was flowing right along, throw in some mischief and we were having a blast (okay add in a little rum & coke along with that mischief) it was needed trust me.
Anyway we had ex's and ex in laws all in the same house, my cheating niece brought her newest dud who was too lazy to even make his own plate (he also had the nerve to ask me to make him a plate WTH?) Yeah I'm not good at controlling my sarcasm and told him if he wanted a mommy he needed to go home to her, needless to say we don't get along, I do however get along with my ex nephew in law who is such a nice person (my niece is an idiot he was a great guy for her) I watched my niece get stupid jealous over my bestie talking to her ex (never mind the fact that it was about my bestie's husband LOL) my alcoholic brother search my cabinets for something to drink, my sister try to defend my nieces cheating and mine & hubs mom argue over how we kids have no morals and we're all going to hell in a hand basket. So after the Easter egg hunt I rushed everybody off as soon as possible, looked over at my hubs and said What the Hell were we thinking? He proceeded to laugh his ass off and ran to the store for a chaser for my rum. At one point I stood back and looked at this crazy bunch and thought maybe just maybe I was switched at birth I can only hope right?
And dammit to hell if I didn't get roped into throwing my mom her 80th birthday surprise party, I really do need to learn to say no ; )

So how was your Easter?

Touch & Geaux (Cut & Run #7) by Abigail Roux

Touch & Geaux (Cut & Run #7)
After having their faces plastered across the news during a high-profile case, FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have become more useful to the Bureau posing for photo ops than working undercover. Just as Zane is beginning to consider retirement a viable option, Ty receives a distress call from a friend, leading them to a city rife with echoes from the past.

New Orleans wears its history on its streets, and it’s the one place Ty’s face could get him killed. Surrounded by trouble as soon as they land, Ty and Zane are swiftly confronted with a past from which Ty can’t hide—one with a surprising connection to Zane’s.

As threats close in from all directions, both men must come to terms with the lives they’ve led and the lies they’ve told. They soon discover that not all their secrets are out yet, and nothing lasts forever.

                                                                   *5++ STARS*

I gotta a bone to pick with you Ms Roux, I am just too damn old to be up all night reading because I just can't put such an incredible story like this one down, you gotta take pity on us older folks we just can't handle that much excitement and then expect us to wait for the next amazing Ty & Zane book till next year. AUGH!! I'll just be that much older and can't handle a sleepless night of course if I would have been smart about it I would have waited till today to start it but there is no way I could have waited on an Abi Roux book that long just no way. Okay seeing as the Cut & Run series is my second favorite series ever each book has 5 Stars from me (they're exciting on the edge of your seat action but with such an intense romance story) and Ty & Zane have both made me love their characters and drawn me into adoring the secondary ones too especially Nick and now add Kelly and even a little bit of Liam in there mostly I'm just intrigued by him though. Anyway in this excellent installment we learn even more about Ty and his secrets (spoilers ppl if ya don't want stop here)  and can I just say Ms. Roux I cried my fricking eyes out you ripped my heart out but gave it back to me a little at a time so thank you for that. We learn a small bit about Zane and I absolutely loved the tie in with NO & Ty, what an beautiful way to add that I was very impressed. I also thought that the little pieces of previous books added in were awesome, made me want to go reread them again which I will most certainly do this week can't help myself this series is just that good. I also have to say with each book that I have read I fall more & more in love with these two characters not only are they sexy hot together (because Duh they are) they have such intensely real emotions Ms. Roux makes you feel those emotions along with her characters you can see where each one is coming from and it becomes as intense for the reader as it does for the characters. I find it funny cuz I swear these two attract trouble but thats what makes the stories exciting and makes us not able to put it down we have to see what happens next. I won't give to much away but Dammit to Hell that ending was fucking Awesome but please please don't make me wait til next year I need more my OCD can't take it LOL. If you haven't read any of this series you need to I was hooked with the first book and when I need to feel good I pull out this series it's a comfort read of mine it's not an instant love but drawn out slowly in each book which I love with this series, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND (can you tell I love this series? o_0 

PS. Ms. Roux I'd really like to read a story of Nick I hated him when we first met him but now adore him, please pretty please....puppy dog eyes....we really need to read more Nick you have made him such an interesting character how can we not?
