Jennifer Rardin Week 2: Jaz Parks!

Ok, so technically Jaz Parks Week started 2 days ago. I’m running behind, but over at Strange Candy Reviews things are running on schedule! Lol!

This week we will be focusing on the main character of the Jaz Parks series. JAZ!! She’s 5’5”, with curly red hair, looks fragile, but is far from it, because she kicks ass!

 

A Few Favorite Quotes:

"I'm just being practical. I knew someday I might have to bare my throat to you. Pete and I discussed that very possibility. As for the danger and risk taking, that's what Pete pays me to do. And you and I both know he intends to get his money's worth."
"Jasmine, I cannot-"
"Why not!"
"Because you are not food!"
I stared at him for a minute; the I started to grin. I couldn't help it.
"Vayl"-I tried to keep my face straight- "I'm not asking you to eat me." 

-Once Bitten, Twice Shy

Sometimes things would be so much simpler if you could just pull out your gun and shoot the bad guy. Reason number seventeen why Indiana Jones is my hero.

-Once Bitten, Twice Shy

I cleared my throat. What do you say when you find out your blood is really filling? It’s not a Manwich: it’s a meal!

-Once Bitten, Twice Shy

 

What do we have in store for you? Well, one of my favorite things from the series is Granny May’s advice filled poker games and such that Jaz has. They crack me up, especially the random people that tend to tag along. So, I’m going to be posting who I would invite to mine… or maybe who might just show up anyway, lol. Jo-Anne already has hers up & it’s AWESOME! Go check it out HERE. Dakota Cassidy will also be stopping in at Strange Candy Reviews so you won’t want to miss that.

Oh! There’s also going to be a fan art contest, which we’ll tell you more about it soon!! If you have Jennifer Rardin or Jaz Parks fan art or know someone who does, your welcome to start sending it in to me or Jo-Anne if you would like.

Book reviews also start this week, so look for those as well. :)

I just finished re-reading this book today and marked those quotes too. I love the Manwich one! LoL

Lol!! That's my favorite one. I remembered it from the first time I read it too, then I giggled when I re-read it. So I wrote it down. I wanted to make sure I shared it. :D

Gosh it has been a while since I read any Jaz and lemme tell you these quotes is enticing.

Jennifer Rardin was a gifted writer and the reading world is blessed to have her work.

Now this earned a quite loud chuckle, but this one:

"I cleared my throat. What do you say when you find out your blood is really filling? It’s not a Manwich: it’s a meal!"

had me laugh so loud my colleague came and asked me what I read from the next office!! :-D
