NCIS: Los Angeles: 5×10 – The Frozen Lake

And cue a giant leap in the Deeks/Kensi relationship.  This episode was a goldmine for Deeks/Kensi fans.  Deeks protecting Kensi from gunfire, Deeks not wanting to take the shot in case he missed, Kensi punching Deeks because of it, the Frozen Lake metaphor, the Fern/Max scene, Kensi giving Deeks her father’s knife, Kensi rushing in […]

The Mentalist: 6×07 – The Great Red Dragon + 6×08 – Red John

Wow, and so the Red John arc finally draws to a close.  I haven’t been obsessed with the show in years so I couldn’t tell you if the resolution really does tie up every loose end and fits with all the info we’ve been given before.  However, it was definitely a deserving conclusion.  The showdown […]

Where The Heart Is by Darcy Burke

Falling For Mr. Wrong by Inara Scott

Received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review By the nature of the genre, it’s likely that once you’ve read about a dozen contemporary romances, you have discovered all the different plots and ‘twists’ in romances and all the rest of the books in genre are just more of the same with […]
