I am going to let you in on a little secret.

Here’s why.

I’ve been thinking a lot about stealth sex lately.

Probably because I’ve been binge-watching YouTube videos about stealth camping and stealth solo survival. There’s just something about sneaking around and getting away with “bad behavior” that fascinates me.

It seems the older I get, the fewer books hook my attention. Even fewer sustain it to the last page. Of those, only a handful actually impact my life in any noticeable way.
