BELIEVE ME FRIENDS, THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT! HERE IS MY REVIEW! 


Blue Moon III: Call Of The Alpha
by: A.E. Via 
reviewed by: Becky


Call and Alpha have settled comfortably into their carefree lives nestled in the mountains of South Carolina. No more combat for the Commander and no more ordered killings for the deadliest assassin in the world. However, nothing stays peaceful forever. When Alpha’s brother Omega comes to their secluded home with a distressing message from their Order, Alpha has to answer the call. 
It’s been a couple years since Commander John Marion – the US Navy’s most decorated SEAL – hung up his dog tags, choosing his cherished Alpha over war. 

Call and Alpha have settled comfortably into their carefree lives nestled in the mountains of South Carolina. No more combat for the Commander and no more ordered killings for the deadliest assassin in the world. 

However, nothing stays peaceful forever. 

When Alpha’s brother Omega comes to their secluded home with a distressing message from their Order, Alpha has to answer the call. But what neither of them expect is for the Order to send them a new assassin, one just as deadly as both of them, to seek their counsel and bring them back Persia. 

Lion’s commanding presence was not at all what any of them anticipated. Especially Omega. Lion realizes what Omega is to him right away, but the stubborn man fights his every advance. Lion knows he and Omega have to connect if they’re going to be victorious. He was sent to bring back an army but if he can’t get his cherished to yield to him, they are sure to fail. 

Call refuses to let Alpha fight a gang of rebel assassins without him. Omega will fight by his brother’s side, no matter what… and Hawk saw them coming for his help before anyone else. Together they’ll fight the toughest opponents they’ve ever faced. As always… these badass warriors are up for the challenge.
I am so happy to be able to catch up with the men of the Blue Moon Series one last time, and boy is this book a great sendoff! 
We meet up with Call and Alpha, who are so in love and so smokin hot together it isn't funny! They are living the low key life they love when Alpha's brother pays them a visit and the two know their peaceful life is taking a detour! 
Omega needs his brother for one last mission, what he doesn't need is the oh so sexy Lion wanting something from him that he isn't ready to give, or is he? As Omega battles himself, some of our faves from the series, get together to battle an enemy that hit far to close to home for Alpha and Omega! 
Can these guys win this battle? Will Omega give his heart free reign to love completely? Will Alpha and Call both make it back in one piece to live the low key life they crave? 
All your questions will be answered in this one guys, and trust me there will be shockers and OMG moments galore! Thanks A.E., for giving this series the epic sendoff it deserves!

Brokenhearted Lovers
Brokenhearted Necklace/That Which Was Lost 4 
by: A.M. Snead 
reviewed by: Becky


When faced with a common threat…will enemies become friends?
Find out in the series finale as fathers and sons face off, best friends become lovers, and forgiveness covers a multitude of sins. 




I have been waiting for this book, and I am so excited to say that it is as perfect as the rest of the series! 

Lonnie finally has Paul, and his mothers blessing, he still has to deal with his fathers disapproval, but in this book you will see Lonnie move beyond needing his dad's approval, and who knows, Lonnie's dad may just change his tune! 

Ashley is up to her old evil tricks, but it may just be that the people she has blackmailed into doing her evil bidding have had enough! What will happen if Ashley reveals the dirt she has on them? It may just get crazy!! 

Jack and Travis break my heart in this one! I was always rooting for them and now that they may have seen the error of their ways, will things fall apart for them for good? 

Guys you have to read this one! It not only wraps up this series, but it paves the way for more stories that we need closure on! Thanks A.M. for giving us a perfect end to this lovely series!

NOW FOR AN EXCERPT: 

Paul ran from the police station to the school without pausing for a rest or even a breath. Two years of manual labor on Brody’s ranch had kept his body conditioned and was now paying off. As soon as his feet struck school grounds, his energy surged, propelling him through the heavy entrance doors. Silence met him inside the large structure; the school was never this quiet. He glanced into classrooms as he moved down the main hallway; all empty. What the fuck?
As he moved toward the far side of the building, a distant, amplified—though slightly muffled—voice pushed out into the halls and coming from the gym. Paul broke into a sprint, and as he neared the gymnasium, he detected the voice as that of a girl.Ashley Winters. His gut knotted, and he ran harder, rounding the corner in the hallway. Someone stood just outside the gym, the double doors cracked opened a few inches as he peered through.
Jack!
The thumping echo of Paul’s shoes smacking against the hard floor spun Jack around. His eyes widened when he saw the fury on Paul’s face, and he started to speak—his words instantly knocked out of his mouth by Paul’s fist.
“Fucker!” Paul slammed him against the wall, and gut punched him. “Where the fuck is Lonny! What the fuck did you do?”
Jack doubled over and sucked for air, trying to speak, and Paul slammed him again, clutching his shirt and pinning him against the wall.
“I told you, motherfucker!” Paul raged. “If you ever pulled shit with Lonny again you would fucking regret it!”

GRAB THIS BOOK TODAY GUYS, IT IS AS PERFECT AS ALL THE REST OF THIS AUTHORS WORK! THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR THIS RELEASE DAY REVIEW, I WILL SEE YOU GUYS NEXT TIME!





HARD CLIMATE REVIEW!!


HELLO FRIENDS, I AM SUPER EXCITED TO BRING YOU MY REVIEW OF HARD CLIMATE, MEN OF LONDON 8 BY SUSAN  MAC NICOL! I LOVE THIS SERIES AND THIS BOOK IS A LOVELY EDITION! LOOK BELOW FOR MY REVIEW AND LINKS! LET'S GET STARTED!



THIS QUOTE IS BEAUTIFUL AND JUST PERFECT FOR  MANGO! HERE IS MY REVIEW: 

Hard Climate
Men Of London 8 
by: Susan Mac Nicol
reviewed by: Becky

Eco-warrior Mango Manning must shake the demons of his past to win back London nightclub owner Ryan Bishop, who is suddenly facing issues of his own. 

WITH BOTH HANDS 

Brawny, beautiful, complicated and sexy as hell, eco-warrior Mango Manning is everything performer and London nightclub owner Ryan Bishop wants in a life-partner. But Mango has been loving and leaving Ryan for the past two years, and Ryan’s had enough. That’s why he’s moving on. Ryan’s the monogamous type—which means now he’ll be alone at the worst possible time. 

Mango Manning knows he’s screwed up and has commitment issues. That’s why he’s been so on-and-off with Ryan these past two years. He’d thought he found a safe haven, a place to hide from the losses of his past, but there are other demons you just can’t escape. Like Ryan’s health. If Mango is to put things right, he must man up and discover a way back into Club Delish and the heart of its owner. Only then can they look to the future together, come what may. True happiness will slip through their fingers...unless they both grab on and hold tight.




This book is the perfect compliment to the Men Of London series, and since we met Ryan a couple of books back I have wanted his story! Boy does Susan grant wishes in the best of ways! 

Ryan wants Mango, he wants to wake up every morning to Mango's kisses and the security and sense of home he could provide, but that isn't what commitment shy Mango can give him, but will a goodbye from Ryan make Mango see what he would be giving up? 

Ryan needs stability in his life, even more so now that he is facing something a person should never have to go through alone! Will Ryan breaking off their love you and leave you agreement make Mango see that he can't live without Ryan? What if he doesn't have a choice? 

Ok friends, see why you have to read this one? So many questions that need to be answered, and the answers aren't always easy to find but boy will they be worth the trouble! Thanks Susan, for an amazing addition to a top notch series! 

                                                the 5 electric screwdriver rating :)

THAT'S QUITE A LOT OF REVIEWS RIGHT? WELL SAGE IS WELL WORTH THE WORK! NOW FOR A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT THIS AUTHOR MEANS TO ME!!

When I first started this blog with my buddy Mike in 2014, this author is one of the first ones I picked to review, and I fell in love with the first book I read of his and had to have more! This was before I received arcs, so I spent a ton on this author, but it was so well worth it! 

I love reading Sage's books, because they are wonderfully written, but you also get a lesson of some kind, there are hard truths in his books and he isn't afraid to write about things other people may shy away from, such as mental illness, or abuse, and he does it in a way that makes us feel for the character and teaches us a lesson at the same time! 

When I read a Marlowe book I know I am going to get sucked into whatever world he is writing about, he is just that good! He is also a pretty good friend, and I never mind shining the spotlight on him, as he isn't one to self promote :)!

All in all this is one of my favorite authors and if you haven't read him then what the hell are you waiting for :P! 

THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR MY SNAPSHOT OF SAGE! TUNE IN NEXT WEEK WHEN I SNAPSHOT ANOTHER AMAZING AUTHOR!

HEY FRIENDS, I AM HERE WITH MY BLOG TOUR STOP OF DINNER AT FOXY'S; LAW AND SUPERNATURAL ORDER 3 BY: SILVIA VIOLET! BELOW IS THE COVER (WHICH I LOVE) BLURB, LINKS, TEASERS, AND EVEN AN EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY! CHECK IT OUT:

BLURB
Fox shifter Luke runs Foxy’s Chicken Shack, known for the best and spiciest chicken in town. For months he’s had his eye on Silas, a young cop who patrols the area around his restaurant. When Silas arrives to question Luke about his cousins’ criminal activities, things blow up, literally, and Silas is injured. Luke will do whatever it takes to see his cousins brought to justice. He might not survive his crazy plan, but if he does… Could there be a chance at love for this fox shifter and his cop?

Dinner at Foxys Teas1

EXCERPT
I’m Luke, and I’m a fox. Okay, I’m a fox shifter, but I’m also hot, a smooth-talker, and I give one wild ride. I run a restaurant in Atlanta. We sell the best damn fried chicken you’ve ever eaten. That’s right. I’m a bona fide fox in the henhouse. Our chicken comes in spicy, spicier, and fuck-me-I’m-on-fire.

The dinner shift is crazy as fuck tonight even though my best people are in the kitchen. I don’t know who decided to send me all the large parties, prize-winners for most finicky order, and downright bitchy-as-fuck complainers, but they are all out in force tonight.

I’m about to take a break. I need a whiskey, but a large sweet tea will have to do since I’m working.

The door chimes as it swings open, and I glance up, expecting another party of nine, half of them gluten-free vegans—at a fucking chicken shack—but, no… Fuck me. It’s that gorgeous blond twink in a cop’s uniform, the one who’s become a regular. His baby face makes him look like he’s playing dress-up. I want to run my hands—and my tongue—over every inch of his smooth, pale skin. He glances my way, and his eyes widen for just a second. Then his tongue slides out to moisten his lips.

Maybe this night is about to improve. Officer Blond and Surely-Not-As-Young-As-He-Looks moves my way. Oh yes. Come to Daddy.

I thought you didn’t do cops.

Sometimes I hate my fucking conscience.

Nothing but trouble there.

I’m not like the rest of my family. I don’t run guns or steal cars. I don’t hurt people or use them. But some of my business interests aren’t exactly what you’d call legal. Hell, the simple fact that I’m a fox shifter makes me suspicious to most people. However, this is one officer of the law I wouldn’t mind having a close acquaintance with.

The hottie in blue reaches the counter. “What can I do for you, Officer?” I ask.

His cheeks pinken adorably, but he holds eye contact. “You’re the owner, right? Luke Redtail.”

“That’s me.” I wink, and he glances away. This is going to be fun.

“I’m Officer Bixby, and I need to ask you some questions in connection with an investigation. Is there somewhere private we could go?”

My bed. It’s right upstairs. “I’ve got an office in the back. Let me get someone to run the register.”

As I turn toward the kitchen I see my uncle standing in the small side parking lot. My uncle who’s supposed to be dead. What is he doing here? “Oh fuck!”

As he throws the object in his hand, I scream, “Get down! Now!” I grab my cop and haul him over the counter. Thank God for shifter strength. I wrap myself around him, but in the shock of the blast, we hit the floor.

I CAN'T WAIT TO BRING YOU MY REVIEW OF THIS BOOK, LOOK FOR IT VERY SOON! HERE IS A BIO AND SOCIAL LINKS FOR SILVIA!

WHAT WHO WRITES IS READING LUNA DAVID!


HELLO FRIENDS, I AM HERE WITH MY WHAT WHO WRITES IS READING POST FOR THIS WEEK AND MY GUEST IS LUNA DAVID! I LOVE HER POST AND YOU WILL TOO, SO LET'S SEE WHAT LUNA HAS TO SAY ABOUT HER BOOKS OF CHOICE! 



Disclaimer One:  Ok, soooo… I was asked by Bec to write this post for her blog. First, let me say the request to do this immediately made my heart gallop in my chest and filled me with great trepidation. I can spin a yarn, write a story, share with you the men that play around together in my head. They are separate from me, those men. Their stories get written down from the jumbled mess that is my mind and put on paper, so as to move on to the next couple that is taking up space there. That’s honestly the easy part for me, mostly because they are stories of others, not of myself.
I am an introvert, through and through. So, when people ask me to write blog posts, review their books, answer personal questions about myself and the like, I clam up. I don’t know what to say, when to say it, or how to say it, etc. So this post? PAINFUL! But here I am, because it’s Bec, and welp, you can’t grow as a person unless you do shit that gets you out of your comfort zone. And at this point, I’m nowhere near my comfort zone. In fact, I’ve lost it… *glances around frantically* Nope, it’s gone. *Clears throat, whimpers, pretends to be unaffected* Moving on.
Disclaimer Two: My husband always jokes with me about my inability to choose, well, nearly anything. Making decisions is hard for me because, in his words, “I like my options…” And it’s so true. I love my options. It’s why I ask him what he’s ordering for dinner and order something different, so we can either split and share or I can eat off his plate. The man must be besotted, as he once told me the story of him around the age of eight, stabbing his six-year-old brother in the hand with his fork, when he dared try to take something off his plate. My husband also jokes that my womb couldn’t even make up its mind when we had kids, and so we ended up with girl/boy twins to cover all the bases. He’s a funny guy, my husband.
But I digress… again. My point with this disclaimer is that choosing ONE M/M book, author, or series is literally an impossible task for me. That is not an exaggeration… Impossible. Throughout my life, I’ve been asked what my favorite movie is, my favorite song, my favorite food, etc, etc, etc. Nope, Nope and…. Nope.  Can’t do it. All the possibilities get jumbled in my head, along with all the reasons I love them and there’s Just. No. Way.
Disclaimer Three: I am wordy. Verbose. Long winded. Case in point—I was asked to share with you my favorite M/M book, author, or series. And here I am, having not shared a damned thing about any book, author, or series. *wonders idly if I can just ramble on and avoid answering the question* *shakes head, scrubs face in frustration, dives back in* So here I am, writing entirely too much about nothing and nothing about my intended topic. *sighs*
My point with this disclaimer is to warn you that I’m not answering Bec’s question as she intended, I’m answering it in the only way I know how. I’ll share with you the last three (well, technically four) full length novels (in order) that I’ve read, thus avoiding choosing just one. See what I did there? Worming my way out of answering these types of questions has become an art form. *pats self on back*
Oh and then there’s the fact that I can’t pick a favorite genre or sub-genre to save my life. I love all sorts of stuff: BDSM, big tough guy with much smaller man, protection/security, contemporary, May-December, Military, hurt/comfort, etc. I could go on and on, but I’ve already prattled on quite enough and my flair for avoidance has just delayed the inevitable, so here we go.
I recently reread—for maybe the eighth time—For a Reason (Sizzing Miami Series Book 2) by Jessie G. This book… I don’t even know what it is about this book. No wait, yes I do. One word: Red. Not to mention, this book combines some of my all-time favorite aspects: big tough guy with a smaller man, contemporary, a touch of BDSM, and some hurt/comfort. I mean come on! I love the whole series, but this book in particular hits lots of my favorite buttons. As my TBR list grows, this one sits on my backburner for when I’m looking at my too long list of books to read and can’t make a choice. Oh noes, a case of too many options! So rather than rocking in a corner and mumbling to myself, unable to make a choice, I just go back to this one... Again and again.

I also read Retribution (The Protectors, Book 3) by Sloane Kennedy. This is her latest series and dear god all of the books in this series are amazing! Lots of my favorite buttons are hit with this series as well: contemporary, former military, protection, hurt/comfort. This is my first series that I’ve read of hers and there are others that came before that I need to go back and read, because… SO GOOD! They are action packed, full of twists and turns and sexy… Oh so sexy. You learn to really love the MCs and her writing style just sucks me in every single time.
And then the last one… well two. The Necromancer’s Dance (The Beacon Hill Sorcerer Book 1) (reread in prep for book 2) and The Necromancer’s Dilemma (The Beacon Hill Sorcerer Book 2) by SJ Himes. Let me just say, SJ Himes—and her alter ego Revella Hawthorne—is not an author I ever would have picked up. She makes me read stuff that is just so far removed from my normal preferences. Urban fantasy, paranormal, and mpreg are obviously missing up above in my favorite genres/sub-genres. These are not my go to book types, these are not what I would normally choose to read. But she creates worlds, characters, and plots in such a way that I feel like I’m there. I can smell the forest, I can feel the change from wolf to human and back again, I can envision being a pregnant man (whut?), and I can imagine I live in a world where vampires and necromancers exist, and an adorable dragon familiar named Eroch isn’t so farfetched. This is not easily done for me, but SJ Himes does it every time.

So there you have it. Longest post ever. Lots of yadda yadda yadda… I hope I didn’t bore you to tears or make you fall asleep. Thanks for having me, Bec. This will teach you to ever invite me to participate in your blog ever again! Happy reading, everyone! <3 font="" luna="">

WHO I USED TO BE COVER REVEAL AND PROMO POST!


YESSSSS!!! IT IS FINALLY TIME TO REVEAL THE COVER, BLURB AND A VERY AWESOME TEASER OF 'WHO I USED TO BE'  FIRSTS AND FOREVER #12 BY ALEXA LAND! I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL YOU GUYS SEE WHO THE LOVE INTEREST IS, AND MAY I SAY I HAVE BEEN ASKING ( BEGGING, PLEADING, WAILING: WHATEVER :p) FOR THIS GUY TO GET HIS HEA EVER SINCE WE MET HIM! YAYYYY I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER AND YOU GUYS WILL LOVE IT! OK WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, HERE IS THE STUNNING COVER: 




HOW PERFECT IS THIS GUYS? AHHHH YOU LOVE IT AS MUCH AS ME RIGHT !!!! :) NOW FOR THE BLURB AND THE (DRUMROLL) BIG REVEAL: 

Zachary Paleki’s life is careening toward disaster.
At just 24, he’s had to do whatever it takes to survive, including selling his body, and the ways he’s found to escape from his bleak reality are destroying him.
On one of the worst nights of his life, Zachary meets TJ Dean, a broken man with demons of his own. A former drug addiction and time in prison took him from his son Trevor at a young age and left TJ crippled with guilt. He’s slowly rebuilding his life and his relationship with his son, but TJ can’t forgive himself for past mistakes. He thinks he can help Zachary though, not that he wants to be helped.
It takes hitting rock bottom for Zachary to reach out to TJ, the one person he thinks will understand. Neither is expecting the attraction that flares between them, not with their substantial age difference, and certainly not while drowning in a sea of pain and regret. In the process of healing, both begin to discover so much more than they ever dreamed possible.
But does love stand a chance between two lost souls who are convinced they aren’t worthy of it?

Who I Used to Be, the twelfth book in Alexa Land’s best-selling Firsts and Forever series, will be out in August (exact date TBA). For updates, follow Alexa on Facebook or join her email newsletter by sending a message to AlexaLandWrites@gmail.com


EEEEEEPPPP! HOW PERFECT IS THIS! TOLD YOU GUYS IT WAS GREAT, I LOVE TJ,
 ( AND NOT JUST BECAUSE HE IS MY TREVOR'S DAD) ALEXA HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK WITH THIS ONE FRIENDS! NOW FOR THE TEASER :p

In this scene from Who I Used to Be, Zachary and TJ are just getting to know each other and are spending the day in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Random fun fact: what happens to them when they decide to take a pedal boat out on Stow Lake actually happened to me when I was there a few years ago.

We rented a pedal boat at the counter of the quaint boathouse and followed a tall, skinny teenager onto a dock lined with little vessels. Most were open-topped two-seaters with white decks and brightly colored bottoms, and they reminded me of enormous bath toys. When we reached the one we’d been assigned, TJ climbed aboard first and held his hand out to me. The boat had a big number forty-two on the side, and I said, “How appropriate, we got the Hitchhiker’s Guide boat. It should say ‘don’t panic’ in huge letters across the front.” We were right in the middle of reading Douglas Adams’ terrific series, and my comment made TJ grin.
I’d never been on a boat of any kind before, so trying to get in wasn’t pretty. When I stepped onboard, the little boat bobbed and swayed, and I waved my arms frantically to keep from tipping over. TJ held on to one arm while the kid working the boat rentals grasped the other. I quickly swung my butt into the plastic seat and said, “I have no idea how I’m getting back out of here.” I gave the teenager a little wave and called, “Sorry for almost pulling you into the lake.”
“You’re not the first. Have fun,” he said cheerfully, before unhooking a rope and giving the boat a push.
“Well, we’re screwed,” I said as we drifted away from that nice, solid dock.
“Pedal with me.” At least that part was easy. As we began to propel the boat forward, TJ asked, “Do you want to steer, or should I?”
“You saw me trying to get in this thing, right? Clearly I don’t have a seafaring bone in my body. Or lakefaring, for that matter. Why would you trust me with the controls?”
“It’s not like I’ve ever driven a pedal boat either, so you’re just as likely as I am to figure out the steering.”
“You do it, “I said. “I’ll screw it up.” The controls consisted only of a single joystick between the seats, and after a moment I asked, “Where are the brakes?”
“Boats don’t have brakes.”
“Then how do you stop?”
“Just quit pedaling.”
“But momentum will still move us forward.”
“I know.”
I asked, “Do we at least have an anchor to throw in the water?”
“Nope.” TJ was grinning as he experimented with moving the joystick left and right. Or port and starboard. Whatever.
“Don’t hit that duck,” I said, pointing at a big mallard ahead of us.
“If you’re going to backseat drive, you have to take the controls.”
“I’m not. Just don’t hit the duck.”
“I’m pretty sure it knows to get out of the way.”
“He. The females are the plainer brown ones.”
“I did actually know that.”
“I figured you did,” I told him. “I’m just spouting off some random duck facts to make up for being too dumb to know boats don’t have brakes.”
TJ glanced at me and grinned. “The duck got out of the way.”
“He’s smart. He probably even knew that brake thing.”
We pedaled along for a while, and TJ said, “I’m proud of us. Check out what we’re doing right now. We left the house. We’re participating!”
“I think we’ll be set for another six months after this.” Suddenly, I pointed to something on a fallen tree at the water’s edge and exclaimed, “Turtle!”
TJ smiled and said, “That’s like your version of ‘squirrel!’ It’s very cute, please keep doing it.”
“You just referenced a Pixar movie.”
“I did.”
“Turtle!” I pointed to another little animal on a rock and TJ laughed. It was the best sound imaginable.
“Oh hey, look at that,” he said a little later. We’d rounded a bend, and a graceful red pagoda with a green tile roof had come into view.
“It’s beautiful. If we survive this three-hour tour, let’s go over to the island and take a closer look.”
“Sure, Gilligan.”
“I think I watched every single rerun of that show as a kid,” I said. “I have no idea why.”
“Neither do I.” TJ let go of the controls and draped his arm over the back of my seat. “Tag, you’re it. Time to take the wheel. Or, you know. The stick.”
I muttered, “Oh hell,” and grabbed the joystick with both hands.
I found it didn’t do much. Even pulling it quickly to one side just made the boat meander in a lazy arc. “Okay, this isn’t bad,” I said after a while. But when a rowboat appeared ahead of us, I got nervous and told TJ, “Maybe you should take over.”
“Nah. You’re doing great.”
I managed to get around the other boat without causing a full-scale maritime disaster, then announced, “I’m going to hit that bridge.” A graceful stone structure arched over the lake, connecting the island to the rest of the park.
“Just stay in the middle and you’ll be fine.”
When I failed to Titanic us into the bridge, I relaxed a bit. After a few minutes, TJ glanced over his shoulder and frowned, and I asked, “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing. There’s just a duck following us.”
“Is it the one you tried to run over?”
He smiled at me and said, “No, it’s a huge, white one.”
“Is it a swan?”
“Not unless it’s wearing a duck disguise.”
I glanced over my shoulder and said, “I think that’s a goose, and he’s gaining on us. What do you think he wants?”
“A fight to the death so he can take back the Black Pearl? Or in this case, the Plastic Pedaler?” I chuckled and TJ announced, “He’s still gaining. Pedal faster.”
We both increased our efforts, and when TJ looked behind us again, he said, “He seems pissed off. Did you do something to make him angry?”
“I did. I showed him a cookbook with a recipe for Christmas Goose and dragged my finger across my neck in a threatening fashion. Apparently he didn’t find it funny.”
“He must be overly sensitive. Out of curiosity, have you ever eaten a Christmas Goose?”
“Hell no. Who am I, Tiny Tim? I always have Chinese food.”
“I’ve heard that’s a tradition in some Jewish families, since everything else is closed. Are you Jewish?”
“No. My dad wasn’t much of a cook, and we both loved Chinese, so he’d take me as a treat on Christmas day. I’ve kept that tradition alive.” TJ glanced at me, and I said, “Don’t worry. I don’t automatically go into a tailspin every time I talk about my dad. I have a lot of good memories from my childhood, including that one.” A splashing sound behind us made me glance over my shoulder. Our pursuer was flapping his big wings and seemed like he was trying to run in the water. “The goose is gaining.”
We both applied an extra burst of energy, and passed three other pedal boats. Their occupants stared and pointed, and a couple people pulled out their phones to film the goose pursuit. “We’ve been singled out,” TJ said. “The goose has no interest in the other boaters.”
“Maybe he just wants to be friends.”
“Do you want to stop and find out?”
“I really don’t.” After a few more minutes of intense pedaling, I gasped for breath and said, “I’m incredibly out of shape. My legs are about to snap like twigs. Thank God I gave up smoking at least, even though my lungs were in no way prepared for this.”
“When did you stop smoking?”
“A few weeks ago. Everything smelled completely disgusting to me when I was so sick, including cigarettes, so I quit by default. I need to stop talking now because I need my breath for aerobic goose avoidance.”
“Stop pedaling for a minute and take a rest,” he said. “I’ll keep going.”
“Oh no. This is a two-person operation. We live or die together. If it’s the latter, they can bury us side-by-side. Our headstone will say ‘their goose was cooked.’ I need to shut up now.”
We probably broke some kind of record for fastest pedal boat ride around Stow Lake. The flapping goose remained in hot pursuit right up until we approached the dock. Then he veered away and floated off tranquilly, as if nothing had ever happened.

After the high school kid secured it to the dock, TJ stepped out of the boat and offered me his hand. I flopped out gracelessly and rolled onto my back. A moment later, I burst out laughing. TJ dropped down beside me and cracked up, too. People were staring. We didn’t care.
