    1. This is one of the most unique POVs I have ever read The woman here is so epic, it s beyond wordsI loved every minute being in her brain, it was lots of fun and craziness The main guy is uber uber yummy Well, I went into this book without knowing a single thing about it, and I m glad for it cause everything was a surprise DHuge rec for everyone who likes weird humor, here are a few quotes so you can see what it s like I mean, show business people are naming their kids things like Homer, for God [...]


    2. OMG, this was funny Written in first person and narrated by the heroine Blair She was a hoot I d summarize it as a strong romantic sexy comedy with a very light mystery Blair witnesses a murder, which brings Lt Wyatt Bloodsworth back into her life He was someone she dated a few years back, but it abruptly ended after only three dates For me, the bigger mystery was finding out what happened between Blair and Wyatt two years earlier, and not who was trying to kill her Wyatt was such a great hero E [...]


    3. Good audio funny romance I asked Google TO DIE FOR LINDA HOWARD Was an overwhelming response Next time I won t ask Google This book started off well enough, I actually was enjoying it And then it took a turn and couldn t recover.Blair Mallory is a confident blonde bombshell with an inner monologue to put any angsty teen to shame She is a successful woman with her life nicely organised, running her own gym and driving her Mercedes convertible Until someone who looks exactly like her is found dead [...]


    4. My second Linda Howard novel was enjoyable read humor and banter between main characters were the best part, but unlike After the Night, this book had similarities with Kristen Ashley writing Beginning was the weakest point for me because it took me a while to get into the story and at times it was hard to follow narrator s train of thoughts I d give it 4 stars because it made me laugh like crazy, and 3 stars for the writing.



    5. I really hated this book Not because of its feminist tone, but because of it s MASCULINE tone You read that right.Even though this book was supposed to be from Blair Mallory s POV, it was really from Wyatt Bloodsworth s He goes out with the main character twice, and gets cold feet because he thinks she s high maintenance From what I could see and I am a man , all he wanted was lots of great sex But since he didn t get it right away, he exercised his right to run to calmer and easier waters witho [...]


    6. Book Basics Genre Contemporary RomanceSeries 1st in the series but could be read as a stand alone if you did not want to read the 2nd Blair Mallory book.Writing First person POV Blair Love triangle view spoiler No hide spoiler Cheating view spoiler No hide spoiler HEA view spoiler Yes hide spoiler Would I read by this author Yes Rating 5 stars Review I first read this years ago when I actually still owned paperbacks At the time, I pretty much read historical romances but always made an exceptio [...]


    7. Buddy read with Blacky 333 To Die For is the thirty fourth book out of hers 54 I ve read by Linda Howard and saying that I had a lot of fun reading it is an understatement Unlike her other books this one is written in the first person Blair s POV She s hilarious among other things her lists of transgressions made me LMAO , sometimes ridiculous in a funny way , or outrageous but never boring I also really loved her no nonsense attitude and that she took shit from no one You didn t think I d let t [...]


    8. I loved this I adored the heroine and her voice Countdown to crazy.I was raised in Texas, went to school in Tennessee, and I could relate to her craziness and her code of conduct as a Southern girl In some cases, her rules were antiquated by today s standards, but I could really identify with her I checked Linda Howard s bio, and yes, she lives in Alabama and has the Southern chick sensibilities down pat.Blair is sassy, intelligent, sexy, self sufficient, funny and about a thousand times smarter [...]


    9. 3.75, maybe 4 Definitely comedy romance, and quite well done Linda Howard is one talented writer Vivid action Vivid descriptions Great dialogue Hard hot hottie But a lame mystery.This was better than expected, given that some readers despised the heroine, Blair I actually liked her It s written in first person POV Blair s which I usually don t care for But I liked this book I chuckled Yet too much sex too fast, and I didn t think too much of Wyatt s reason for dumping Blair two years before the [...]


    10. Rating 2.5 starsI read this during my binge reading session in Jan feb and well when I binge read, I just move on the next book, especially if I don t enjoy one book so I never got around to reviewing this or you know many others Where to startm I love Linda Howard s books and I frequently reread them and never actually thought I d find a book in which I wouldnt like the protagonists or the couple together I was confused because Blair thinks she s smart or I m supposed to think she s smart, a br [...]


    11. Slapstick and sexy, this one surprised me I didn t expect something so light and fun from Linda Howard but it just shows her versatility It was like reading a story inspired by both Designing Women and Murder She Wrote I read this book in one night Highly, highly entertaining.


    12. 2nd edition shelved for book challenge purposes for re reads of books within the same year Full review here review show


    13. The first book in the Blair Mallory series by Linda Howard Blair Mallory witnesses a murder but doesn t know it at first She thinks someone is trying to kill her and calls the police to report a shot When they arrive the police discover the body of a woman, Nicole Goodwin, who used to be a member at Blair s gym Then in comes Detective Wyatt Bloodsworth Two years before Blair had dated him 3 times before he left and never called again.I love Linda Howard and I have no idea why I avoided this seri [...]


    14. Hmm, I m having a hard time describing how I feel about this book I liked it enough, Blair was a decent character, but there was something or things missing I m not one of those who hate first person narratives I really have no preference both first and third person narratives are fine with me, as long as they work for the book , but for some reason it felt weird in this book and didn t quite work for me Also, I don t know how I feel about Wyatt His reason for leaving Blair two years ago was lam [...]


    15. Not enjoyable because I did not like the heroine The heroine, Blair, was mouthy, snotty and unpleasant.My take on Blair is if you re beautiful, you don t need kindness or sincerity Following is an example of her personality from page 344 She wakes up early at 5 am She then wakes up her fiance, asking him to leave the room to turn down the thermostat and get her something warm to wear so she can get out of bed He does so and returns to bed to sleep She then gets up and tiptoes out of the bedroom [...]


    16. This book was beyond amazing I seriously love Linda Howard s books, but I tend to forget that she has other books aside from my favorites that I reread over and over again I know this one has been out for a while quite a while but it s one I hadn t read befored I deeply regret that because this book had everything I could want in a book It had mystery, suspense, romance, alpha guy, sassy girl, funny bits that had me literally LOLing I can t remember the last time I read a perfect book with no is [...]



    17. This book is GOOOOOOOOODDDD I laughed and cried while reading this book Like seriously There are times when I don t really like books with murdering theme, or detective theme, but Linda Howard s writing is exceptional I m officially addicted Sure the detective theme is a bit thicker than I usually read, but the romance Hubba hubba Let s just say the police officer is an Alpha male who will not take no as an answer He s demanding, domineering, hard and annoying, yet at the same time kind, gentle [...]


    18. Love Linda Howard but I will never ever by another Howard book with Blair Witch as the heroine She is every girl I hated in preschool, grade school, junior high, highschool, college, on the job, at the grocery, visiting the beauty shopI absolutely hated her and I hated Wyatt because he was with her I wanted her stalker to kill her The book is collecting dust in my garage Yes she is memorable which is one the my criteria as to if I think a book is good are not In this case, thinking of her leads [...]

    20. This was not a romantic suspense book Whatever suspense it had, it wast good But that s so beside the point, because I really enjoyed this one It was hilarious and I found myself laughing out loud a lot I honestly didn t even know if I wanted to strangle Blair sometimes I suspect some might get annoyed at her or be genuinely entertained Well, I was entertained, and that s all that matters.



    21. OMG I don t think I ve ever read a book whose main character I hated as much as I hated Blair Malory I m a big Linda Howard fan, by the way I was excited to find a few of her books that I hadn t read yet By the end of the first chapter, I was rolling my eyes and skipping long winded monologues that were intended to sound witty but fell flat for me It went downhill from there.Blair Mallory, the heroine of this novel and it s sequel Drop Dead Gorgeous , is a selfish, self centered, spoiled brat Sh [...]


    22. I can t remember the last time I hated a book this much.The story begins, rather chattily, in a faux Evanovich or Kinsella style, with ber fit, ex cheerleading, health club owner Blair Mallory Blair wouldn t have been so bad, though, had she come equipped with a spine Because she can do backflips, Blair thinks she s tough Oh, and because she bought a health club with her ex husband s money, too Blair is on her way home for the night when she sees a crazy club member who s been copying her waitin [...]

    24. I have to admit that when I first started reading this book, I wasn t sure if I would like it The main character, Blair Mallory just seemed so shallow and ditzy and ridiculous, but then as soon as Wyatt Bloodsworth came onto the scene, things turned around and really started getting interesting When Blair witnesses a murder outside of her business, the murder of an annoying copy cat who went to great pains to imitate Blair s style and look, she soon realizes that she might have been the intended [...]


    25. To Die For Blair Mallory, 1 by Linda Howard Contemporary Romance Romantic Suspense I have a rule Walk out, crawl back If a man does the first, then he has to do the second to get back on good terms with me After witnessing a murder at the gym she owns, Blair Mallory is drawn back into the life of police Lieutenant Wyatt Bloodworth, a man who dumped her two years ago after only three dates The Bastard She s still mad at him and she isn t about to let him get the best of her.When Wyatt hears about [...]


    26. Hilarious and funny I couldn t stop smiling while reading this book Blair was amazing It was so much fun to be in her brain She was sassy and always said what was on her mind I laughed a LOT while reading her thoughts I m giving this four stars instead of five because I thought something in the romance was off I liked Wyatt and I liked him and Blair together, but something was missing I think their relationship got lost in the humor and everything between them developed too fast I often felt lik [...]
