Best Pickup Lines for Women

I was just reading Cosmo online to find some inspiration for my latest WIP, and I came across this great article for women. These are so much fun. Almost makes me wish I was still single.

The 9 Best Things to Say to a Guy You Just Met

1. At a sports bar: "What's the most impressive goal you've ever scored in a game?"

2. At a club: "I dare you to show me your moonwalk."

3. At a restaurant bar: "They have the best nachos here. Ever tried 'em?"

4. At a friend's party: "I wanted to talk to you the second I got here, but no one introduced me. So I'm introducing myself."

5. At the laundromat: "I'm bored. What do you normally do when your underwear is drying?"

6. At the park: "Any ideas on how to turn this blanket into a Twister board? I really want to play."

7. At a baseball game: "I bet you a post-game drink that (insert player's name) will hit a home run this inning."

8. At the gym: "You look like you know your way around this place. Where's that machine that works your glutes?"

9. On the beach: "I bet you're wondering how I avoid tan lines."

I've gotta say my favorite is #5. Which is your favorite?

To read why these are such great lines, check out the full article here.

Cold and rainy today. Freezing my tushie off as I sat in the doctor's waiting room with my mother. Get home and put on long pants and long sleeve shirt. And guess what? The sun came out and warmed everything up.

Just can't win the 'what should I wear today' game.

In the car

Question: Why do the best kid conversations happen in the car?
Answer: Because they are being held captive and can't escape. :D

This morning my husband and I drove my youngest into the city to visit a sleep doctor. We are investigating whether his attention deficit problem and his speech developmental delays could be related to sleep apnea.

As I am pulling out of the driveway, I heard him quietly mumble something like, "...go out to eat?" When I asked him to repeat, he said, "What if I get hungry while we're out?" It was a perfectly pronounced, complete sentence and so cleverly asked, I burst out laughing. Then I answered, "Then I'll feed you."

So much for Daddy's surprise to stop at McD's on the way home. The kid had us figured out before we left the driveway.

Between A and Z Gets 5 Stars!!!!

Just Erotic Romance Reviews gives 5 Stars to Between A and Z!!!

Here is what the reviewer said:

Title: Between A & Z
Author: Suzanne Graham
Publisher: Total E Bound
Reviewer: Silla Beaumont
Rating: 5 Stars
Heat Level: O

Mia's hit an artistic roadblock. As she's nearing completion on her latest sculpture, a fabulous nude specimen she’s named "Adam," she can't seem to find the right look for his face. She heads to a bar, determined to end her self-imposed abstinence. Barely out of her car, Mia meets Zed, the perfect guy to end her dry streak. They immediately hit it off and wind up in bed together. Though wildly attracted to Zed, Mia can't help but think of the faceless Adam in her studio, and winds up there at 4 am in a burst of inspiration. When she finally finishes Adam’s face, Mia is compelled to give her creation a kiss on his lifeless lips. Suddenly, the creative muse that has been in her head her whole life is standing in front of her, talking, smiling and looking sexy as hell! Can Mia resist the perfect man she's created, or will she take a chance on what might be a good thing with Zed? There’s no way she can have both...can she?

The immediate and irresistible attraction between Mia and Zed is totally combustible! Suzanne Graham did an amazing job capturing the intense feelings between all of the characters without the rushed vibe typical in a short story. At just 55 pages, Between A and Z is a brilliantly sexy and unique story, capturing the heat of that first sexual encounter with a new partner as well as the intense love that an artist feels for their work. While the concept of a clay sculpture coming to life is a bit unusual in my typical reading repertoire, I found that I really liked the fun and lighthearted concept behind Between A and Z. The sex is incredibly intense, especially in the last encounter. This is definitely an excellent quick read from a very talented author!

Moon Princess Gets 4 1/2 Stars!

Night Owl Reviews says, "Moon Princess is a good read and I would recommend it to those who love shifter stories.Warning: You may need a smoke after reading this one."

Three Signatures Gets 3 1/2 Stars

Check out the Night Owl Review of Three Signatures for the Lady. They say, "the ending of this fantasy come true was cute and unexpected and added a nice touch. Easy reading and a great escape."

Got Conflict?

Urgh, I'm stuck and I'm tired of being stuck. I've got this great mix of characters hot to trot, but they can't seem to do anything. They're all standing around looking at each other, thinking it'd be fun to jump in bed together, but no one's making a move. No one's doing anything. There's no passion, no intrigue, no steam, nothing!

I know what's missing. It's called CONFLICT! The problem is I've created four very nice, well-balanced, calm characters. BORING!

Time to go back to the drawing board and give them some neurosis, internal strife, self-esteem issues, driving ambition... Then I can thwart them at every turn and make their lives a living hell before I give them their HEA.

It's hard. I'm too much of a nice gal. I hate to make them suffer, but they're really boring when they have no conflict.
