Jay liked it. Ames liked it. Cindy liked it. Yeah, me too.

This is light and fluffy, but light and fluffy done well. It's completely original and ridiculous and over-the-top. In a good way. And pretty damn funny.

Justine Bennet is the Guardian of the Goblet of Eternal Youth (the goblet is named Mona and changes form to become less conspicuous, so sometimes she's an espresso machine). She's been guarding Mona for 200 years, with her backup Theresa, who is an 11-foot dragon. Derek LaValle is after Justine and Mona because killing Justine is the only way to break a curse that has been on his family for 200 years: All men of his family die at the exact same moment on their 31st birthday. So Justine's trying to kill Derek because he's endangering Mona, and Derek's trying to kill Justine so that he can break the curse and live past his birthday. The problem is, they kind of like each other. ;)

The penhas! Hahahahahahahahaha! Definitely my favorite scene. So I don't think I'll ever read it again, but it was good fun.

I was singing a certain song while reading this. Unfortunately. Twin's head looked like it was going to explode after a while. Heh, heh. I really don't understand why they titled it that. I don't see any connection to the plot. And it's just annoying.

It's a completely retarded title, that's why I waited for someone else to say they read it. LOL

Wasn't Theresa funny? I can't wait for her book.

Jennie said...

Ames--You don't think she'll still be a dragon through the whole book, do you? Cuz I don't think I could get excited about that. :)

ames said...

Well, her finger changed in DMBOMT from Zeke's spell. SO hopefully she'll completely change early on in the next book and then get to have her way with Zeke.

But what the hell kind of hero likes to have cybersex?

Jennie said...

LOL! So true. Ick.

Did we actually ever meet Zeke? I can't remember now. Maybe there will be a different hero.

the title of this book reminds me way too much of that Britney song lol

ames said...

Jennie-remember he tried to deliver the papers to Theresa, but Xavier wouldn't let him in. And then Justine said she was in FBI quarantine. That's when we meet Zeke.

Mailyn-I know! That's why I didn't want to pick it up at first.

Jennie said...

Ames--Oh yeah, I remember now. Well, we'll see about Zeke. Maybe he won't be too bad.

Mailyn--That title was a seriously bad decision. I don't know what they were thinking.
