Review: Banjos, Boats & Butt Dialing

Hott Synopsis:

In this politically incorrect compilation of articles Mike Ball brings forth the humor in living. Take some time off of wondering if it’s ok to laugh and view life through his eyes!

Hott Review:

What I liked: This was laugh out loud funny. The articles were short fun and told in such a way that I had tears running down my face at times. Don’t miss this read! They’re perfect examples of why you shouldn’t take life to seriously.
What I didn’t like: These weren’t always articles that I enjoyed (yes, I’m a bit of a prude) but they’re well written & I’ll bet hubby would love them!
