I think of a baseball bat as more of a vandalism tool than a defensive weapon. More appropriate for stuff like breaking headlights, vases, mailboxes, etc. smile Aluminum is better too....not that I would know from personal experience or anything. :whis:

But hey, forget necessity. Desperation is the mother of invention! If a bat is all you got then it's a defensive weapon.

MACHETE? Holy shit! I'm both scared and impressed by that.

I have an armed hubby and multiple escape routes. LOL

I'm reading Behind Iron Lace by Mercy Celeste. Halfway through but it's good. It's about a man realizing he's gay because he's strongly attracted to the gorgeous persistant cajun. That right cher is some good reading Wink

I love Mercy Celeste! She writes het romance, too! I have read a couple of her books and will read this one soon. She is good friends with Laura Harner. Laura edits some of Mercy's books. Laura does m/m, het, pr and has a GREAT menage series. I know. I HATE triangles, but I swear these are not triangles. Menages are completely different. Live Dark Horse, but Laura's have girly bits. That is just fine with me. Girls need lovin', too.

I don't seem to enjoy reading about menages with girls and guys. I don't know why. I don't really like them in general but sometimes one grabs my attention. I only read Dark Horse because the girls swore it was awesome. Sad and threesomes!!! It was worth reading. I loved it! Sometimes I just need a kick in the ass Wink

I'm not usually a fan of threesomes or any polyamory but Kate Sherwood writes amazing threesomes. They seem viable and even important to the guys in them. Not just adding a third for some fun.

Laura Harner's menage series, Three's Allowed, are all short. Maybe long short stories or short novellas. About 3.00 each. Whiteout is the first one. I liked them. Her threesome all cared about each other and wanted to find a way to build a life together that could include them all. They want to have babies and stuff.The guys both love the girl and the guys love each other and they all love each other enough not to try to force someone to choose or force someone out. Interesting dynamics. She has three and I think a fourth one coming soon. Also, if you haven't read her m/m story, Ty Hard, you have missed a good one.

Mercy Celeste's Behind Iron Lace

Nice little read. Ahem.....I am, however, getting a tiny bit tired of the whole gay angst theme. I mean, I kmow it is always there for a gay person, fictional or real, but I like the stories best where being gay is just a part of the story. Well...there are exceptions. Okay...there are lots of exceptions. But I really like the action/mystery,/suspense with gay characters best. I should probably just delete this. grin

Yesterday I started As You Are by Ethan Day and I am having a hard time getting into this one which is bugging the crap out of me because I have never had a hard time getting into one of his books. Is it a slow pick up or is it just me?

If it's the one with Operation Danny then it's you. I loved that one. It may be my favorite. The one I couldn't get into was the one with the guy who was the architectural restorer who was trying to get his ex back.

Julian in As You Are is one of my favorite characters! I loved him. Have they gone to the park to play football? Loved that part. Loved the whole book.

So I just got to the part where him and Danny slept together and he thought it was more then obviously Danny did sense he brought some guy home after he waited for him all day. He ran out to his car and I had to stop reading cause I was going to cry. Sad I felt like my damn heart was breaking.

Ok, I just finished Of Dark and Bright and OMG I loved it! I loved all the books in this series and i think i loved this one even more just on one thing and that was getting Jeff and Evan's POV's along with Dan's. That just made it so much more. IMO I think it was just the best!

Finished. This is a good book. It had one fairly major flaw for me. The scene where the bad guy confronts Cam and Nic. Maybe it's a Scottish thing or a European thing, but it was so NOT going to happen that way here. Maybe the gang lords in Europe are wimpy sorts, but here....the bad guy would have just killed everyone and walked away if he caught them that off guard and with NO ONE but the criminals in posession of hand guns. Even the damn cop was unarmed. Just seemed so far outside my realm of experience that it pretty much killed the rest of the story. Virtually every WOMAN I know would have reached in her pocket and pulled a Glock or Sig and loaded the bad guys ass with lead and he gave them so many opportunities. Of course, the bad guys here don't automatically know that citizens won't be armed with handguns. Makes me thank God for the right to bear arms. Anyway, that just didn't work for me.

I think you're right, Swede. Shudders at the thought.

I find it funny that you shudder... I like that gun carrying is not common. In South Africa and Zimbabwe I felt a lot more at risk, because of the amount of people that carried guns - legally

Swede, can't explain. Either you are for disarming citizens or you aren't. I'm not.

Read More Than Chemistry by Kate........like it. I think I am ready for books again. And, Of Dark And Bright finally showed up on Amazon. So....starting that next.
