OMG - You Will Laugh Hysterical at This One!
You ever get really into a book and then notice a typo here or there that just drives you crazy? Well...let's just say that you'll be happy you weren't reading this romance novel!
On page 293 of Susan Andersen's novel, Baby, I'm Yours, the characters are getting hot and heavy in a sex scene. Right in the middle of all the hot and steamy action, you read this:
"He stiffened for a moment but then she felt his muscles loosen as he shitted on the ground."
Talk About Your Epic Typos!!! LMAO!
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!
