ARC Book Review | My Soon To Be Sex Life by Judith Tewes

Posted June 23, 2014 by Christy / 4 Comments

Format: e-ARC Source: Publisher via Netgalley Publisher: Bloomsbury Spark Publication Date: June 24, 2014 My rating: 3 of 5 stars Charlie is down to her absolute. Total. Last. Resort.

How is she supposed to get a date when she has to go pick up his Depends? Enter Eric, a […]
