STORY: He Got a Little Too Familiar on Their Blind Date. She Lost It.
By Toya R. Smith

OBSESSED: Romance Novels
By Liz Thompson
“My romance novel addiction started in high school with Harlequin paperbacks, but got a major upgrade in 2007, when my oldest daughter insisted a vampire love story would be a great fit for her 7th grade summer reading list. I read the book first, to make sure that it was really, you know, appropriate for teen readers and… WHAM… it was love at first bite.”
