Just so-so Red Dress Ink book. It feels like some of the language was thrown in for shock value. I like how we were kept in suspense about who she would wind up with...a surprise! And the ending was a good tie-in. Other sub-plots were unnecessary.
And I'm most definetly going to pick up more. I'm a little disappointed it was the only one in my TBR. I'm going to have to make a habit of ordering them. I will defintely be reading more from Erica Orloff. Her characters were funny, and yet they reminded me of my own friends (I am friends with a bunch of gay men, although not drag queens, they are a bunch of drama queens!). Oh, and Tony just sounds yummy :) Love an Irish brogue...mmmm.
