It’s Wednesday again! Who let that happen? My first dose happened last Thursday and my side effects were minimal, though I heard the second shot is where the side effects get you.

RECOMMENDED: Sapphire Flames by Ilona Andrews is $2.99! Many of us romance readers can’t recommend this series or this author enough. You can pick this one up without read the story arc of the previous three, but why would you want to deprive yourself of Ilona Andrews goodness.
