Date Me, Baby, One More Time

I can not say enough how much the title bugs me, but it’s so worth buying the book. Back cover says:

Justine Bennett is cursing her life. She’s the Guardian of the Goblet of Eternal Youth, she hasn’t left the house in ages, and it’s been over 200 years she’s had sex. Oh, and the Goblet has shape-shifted into an espresso machine named Mona. Not exactly the stuff grand destiny is made of…

Derek LaValle is worried, Due to a family curse, he’ll be dead in the space of a week unless he finds the Guardian of the Goblet of Eternal Youth and beheads her. Which wouldn’t be a problem if she weren’t so sexy, smart…and ready to behead him right back.

I finished this book in less than 24 hours. And still worked, and still wrote a few chapters, and still took care of the baby. It was THAT damn entertaining. Some pearls of wisdom that made me laugh until coffee came out my nose:

  • In regards to the LaValle family curse: “…when you considered how they’d died. One had been found impaled on his toothbrush. Another had choked to death on lemonade. How about the one who’d been kicked in the head by a newborn baby and suffered fatal brain damage?”
    • Not since MaryJanice Davidson’s first Betsy novel have I enjoyed a deathly diatribe so much!
  • “Having a mother-in-law who wanted him dead and felt he was inferior to hell’s leader didn’t exactly bode well for the relationship”
    • Satan, by the way, sounds kind of like Borat. It’s weird. But I like his character nonetheless!
  • “I’ve always wanted to be flung across the hall by an unseen force emanating from the leader of hell”
    • Did I mention how freaking witty all her characters are??
  • “I can’t kill a woman who loves my crooked penis”
    • There are simply no words.

Next paycheck, I’m picking up Must Love Dragons, another book in her Immortally Sexy series. SQUEE!
