I'm not gonna lie.
But that's old news and you already know that.
But see the thing of it is, it's not just enough that I love her.
I want ALL readers to love her.
(we won't go into the logistics of that, because frankly not all readers will, but I digress)
I remember when I first saw her books. Passion? Sorry, not going to go there. It'll be too "steamy" for my tastes. (I'm very conservative)
See the thing of it is, I saw my fellow bloggers falling over this new author. Posting excerpts from her books and I caught the JL bug.
I did the UNTHINKABLE nowadays with options to win and books to request for review and bought A Passion Most Pure. I had been in contact a little bit with Julie and she wanted me to email her when I finished and let her know what I thought.
And I thought, great I'm not going to like it and feel obligated to to tell her, because now she expects an email when I'm done.
Oh I ATE those words.
Ate. Ate. ATE.
Because once I gobbled up APMP, I was dead gone (in the voice of Velvet from National Velvet).
Quickly ordered A Passion Redeemed and THEN went and bought (without a coupon mind you, and I hardly ever buy a book without a coupon) A Passion Denied.
Worth. Every. Single. Penny.
Baby, those books were (in JL's words: ) To die for!
And I would have too. Don't you dare TOUCH my JL collection. You might not come out alive.
With this love for both author AND her books, comes a desire to spread the news far and wide about how much I love her books.
So I give you the chance today. (Because I had a scheduling snafu, and you get to benefit, since I have no regular guest today).

Or pretty close to it, since I'm not sure how long "eternally grateful" would last.
Just know I'll be giddy with gratitude.
