Freakin' Weekend with Reading - Call Series

So Friday my day started with a Facebook post reminding readers that The Call Series Box Set was only on sale for $0.99 for one more day...but luckily for you, at the time of writing this it is still $0.99. That's 2.5 books for pennies!!!

OMG I flew through this series and could. Not. Put it down! Sure, it's about a call girl so if that bothers you, buh bye! If not, I thought it was a very good series, sometimes with too much sex but I absolutely loved the rest of it! I mean, he's a billionaire that knows how to travel! London, Paris, imagine it he's probably planned to take her there and the romance, *swoon*. FIVE freaking stars for sure!

Synopsis: LATE CALL:
She’s a high class call girl. He’s taking over his father’s business.
Seven years ago, they fell in love in Paris.
They walked away at the end of the summer, never imagining they’d meet again.
Now he’s her client.

We fell in love the way you jump from a cliff. Hard and fast with a reckless sense of abandon. The six weeks we spent together changed my life, but at seventeen, I was naive. I was a dreamer. A believer.
Now I’m twenty-four and cynical. I don’t believe in love. There’s no place for such emotions as a high class escort. The only things I’m allowed to feel are physical – and that’s why it’s so damn hard when the client of a last minute job turns out to be the man I left in France seven years ago. When he buys me for six weeks at triple my rate, my agent makes it clear I have no choice but to take the job despite our previous relationship. And my heart makes it very clear I have to stay firmly on top of the cliff this time.
Because for six weeks, I once again belong to Aaron Stone.

We crashed and burned like a falling plane. Hard and fast with an inevitable explosion. Another few weeks together changed my life the way the first did. At twenty-four, I became naïve again. I became a dreamer again. A believer. And walking away hurts just as much as it did seven years ago.

But over doesn’t have to mean over-at least in Aaron Stone’s mind. His pursuit is relentless, his determination unwavering. He’ll go to any lengths to keep me and prove that I belong to him. Unfortunately, love isn’t easy, and whether or not I forgive him is irrelevant to his past catching up with us. Once again, our relationship is haunted by a secret, one that could destroy everything, and the secret is born from the need to protect the other…

But the tables have turned, because the secret is mine.

20,000 words. Ten scenes. Seven you thought you knew. Three you never did...

In this CALL series novella, get inside Aaron Stone's head for the very first time. Experience some of your favorite scenes from both Late Call and Final Call, and enjoy three new bonus scenes.

So, after I read through that at lunch and breaks I ended up going to Frenchy's with friends for dinner and it was delish!! If you're ever in the Clearwater, Frenchy's is a MUST. Then we headed back home when plans changed and we ended up hanging out at a friends house. We played Heads Up! and I may have referred to a dodo bird as a d i l d o. *nods* We also watched Jumanji because that was one of the questions in the 90's category and none of had seen it in years. You too? I also forgot this was the bottle opener we found...classy.

Saturday morning I woke up late since we stayed up late the night before and I ended up dreaming about my commute to work and how it would be if I took the 30 minute trek using public transportation. Except this included me walking half of it and the other half there was some sort of a conveyor belt / box people rode in. Yeah, not going to happen.

The rest of my Saturday was spent trying to finish The Call Series and working on some design stuff before A came over to talk about our Europe trip. I did a lot of pinning to my England-Ireland board, so make sure if that interests you you're following me! We also watched Contagion and it was really good! I loved that you got to see the actual looting and craziness of what can happen since I feel a lot of movies only show you the aftermath and not the shocking reality.

I finally finished Sunday morning after church and then I spent the afternoon in the pool and reading Landline which I'll detail more in my monthly "Real Books" post.

Sunday night we made my grandmother's microwave fudge, that I'm munching on now :) and watched a couple of romantic Christmas movies on Netflix.

Monday I got my mom hooked on Sons of Anarchy *fist pump*
