If I saw this on the shelf I'd think I was getting a twofer. Photoshop fail.  Also, what's up with her arm? It looks like it's coming out of the side of her face. I think it's because the angle of her head is off, plus her boobage is out of proportion. It's kind of freaky. … [Read more...]

I don't want to spoil it for Rowena. Against the Cage by Sidney Halston is an MMA fighter book. I was really looking forward to it. … [Read more...]
