A review is in about Flint!!!

I'm going to be blunt. I have had mixed reviews from some readers about Burning Up Flint. People seem to either really love it or absolutely hate it. LOL. I look on the bright side... I have people talking! I'm hoping that's a good thing. Because of the mixed comments and emails I've received... I was really worried about what would happen when the review sites got a hold of Burning Up Flint. I got the first review in my email when they notified me it had been reviewed and I was informed it's been entered into a contest this weekend on their site for the books reviewed this week.
I was afraid to read the review so Mr. Laurann took my seat and read it aloud to me. Imagine me hugging myself, standing a few feet from him watching him instead of the screen, biting into my bottom lip (oh... I do that... lol... also a lower lip chewer). He read it and it's a 5 Cherries. It was a great review!!! (Me blowing out the breath I was holding and removing my fingernails from my forearms) LOL. I smiled and Mr. Laurann gave me a big hug. (I love his hugs). So... WHOOO. LOL. Great review! We smiled at each other... night made! He cooked me a nice steak and shrimp dinner to celebrate! I bought a Boston cream cake with fresh whip cream and strawberries on it for dessert. I know cherries would have been totally appropriate but I'm a strawberry kind of gal. LOL.

Here's a link to the review - http://whippedcream2.blogspot.com/2010/03/burning-up-flint-by-laurann-dohner.html?zx=f1c13af34ce0613

And it's been entered into a contest here - http://www.longandshortreviews.com/WC/recentrev.htm

Have a great weekend!


  1. Woohoo! Awesome review! Huge congratulations!

    I saw it this morning when I went over to vote for a TWRP author. I confess, as soon as I saw you were in the running, I had to vote for you! That's one of those reviews you'd like to frame and keep on the wall for the days the doubt weasels start flinging mud, LOL.

    Hope you enjoyed your celebratory dinner...I love Boston cream cake. :)

  2. Hi Cari,

    Thanks for the vote! I love that review! LOL. I might just frame that one! I've been printing them out and putting them in a scrapbook. LOL.
    That Boston cream cake is YUMMY! I'm trying to refrain from having a second piece today... diet and all... and it's calling to me from the fridge... LOL!

  3. Great review! Wow! Go on and eat another piece of that cake. You deserve it!

    Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

  4. What a great review,
    it's such a buzz isn't it! Congrats Laurann =)

  5. Thanks Mel! Great reviews are sure better than bad ones. LOL!

  6. Kaye,

    I SOOOO got another piece of cake! LOL. It was yummy! I'll just have to do an extra workout or something. LOL.

  7. I have a notebook like that, too. :) I put acceptance letters and reviews in it. They help to encourage and motivate me. We get to working so hard sometimes that we forget how far we've come. :)
