    • KindleObsessed I know. Me too. I usually read it once a year, but I didn’t in 2011. Now I feel like I missed out.

    • KindleObsessed The thing about both of these books is this flagrant “alpha male” set up. They argue, they fight, they scowl & disagree, but that isn’t who they are, that’s who everyone expects them to be.
