We’re back to the Daddy of the Month Club again, and May Day Daddy marks the 25% mark. Lisa is the 3rd one down, only 9 more to go, and I’m looking forward to them. I want to see who gets taken down next. I’m rooting for it to be Belle.
Lisa works from home, so the book club meets at her house, where they always get new margarita flavors and Lisa’s homecooked goodies. (note: I work from home, and on a good day I’m in jammie pants, hair in a messy bun, and bleary eyed from staring at the computer screen too long. Lisa is doing so much better than me.) (although I wouldn’t turn down some strawberry margaritas.) (or homecooked goodies.) (how many sets of parentheses can I put in one blog?) Anyway, on one book club night, her friend Belle comes dashing in and tells Lisa that she just sold a house to a sort of famous person who Lisa would totally know who it is, but she can’t tell Lisa yet. So Lisa, being, you know, human and curious, stares outside the window every day until she sees her new neighbor. He’s an MMA guy named Mack, who goes by May Day, and hey, guess what day he moves into his new house? You guessed it, May Day.
Mack is trying to find some place where he can be out of the limelight. So, he decides that he’s going to buy a house in a small town, far away from where he works, and hopefully, far, far, far away from the paparazzi, and even further than that away from his horrible ex-wife. He’s pretty sure that he has a good chance right now. After the movers have left, and his house is all set up, he decides to get comfy, strips down to his purple briefs, and grabs a beer. Then, he’s stuck with the worst case of ding-dong-ditch ever. I mean, this is even worse than flaming dog shit. OK, maybe it’s not overall bad, but it’s definitely surprising. And right on the heels of that event, Lisa shows up with a May Day basket for her new neighbor. Perfect timing.
This has Ally and Ray’s perfect touch of humor. It’s funny, but not heavy-handed. They aren’t whacking you over the head and saying hey, joke here, laugh. Instead, they set up the situations and let you find the humor in them. I’m not saying that there aren’t obvious jokes, because they are, they just aren’t heavy-handed. And I’m choosing to think that eating onion rings off a cock is a total joke, because otherwise, umm…
I like Lisa and Mack, and this is pretty instalove, but it works really well in their situation and with their personalities. I don’t think that a longer relationship or a slow burn would work as well for them.
I can’t wait for next month’s book.
Heh, the bitch got exactly what she deserved, and I cackled.
OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Perfect! I’m in the mood for funny and light-hearted after finishing Game of Thrones. Going to pick this up now.
This is definitely a good choice.
