What a week. On top of everything going on in the media and the White House, on a smaller scale, things haven’t been easy at home. Brenna is still struggling with her coach and she’s trying to hold it together because this is her senior year and she’s working hard but her coach is making it harder and harder for her to enjoy anything. She stresses about basketball off the court, on the court and she’s been all over the place and it pisses me off but all I can do is be there for Brenna because she’s determined to work through this without my interference.
I didn’t get a lot of reading done this week because I sort of overdid it last week and that’s okay. It’s okay because I’m listening to my very first audiobook at work. I’m listening to Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven
. It’s slow going but it does make my work day more interesting. Shout out to Nereyda
for the book pimp. I’m enjoying the book so far.
The Bastard Billionaire (Billionaire Bad Boys #3) by Jessica Lemmon
A BILLIONAIRE BAD BOYS NOVEL
Beauty and the Beastly Billionaire . . .
Eli Crane is one tough bastard. After an explosion left him injured and honorably discharged from the Marines, all he wants is to be left alone. Yet his brothers insist he take a greater role in the family business. They’ve hired him ten personal assistants- and Eli sent each one packing as fast as possible. But when beautiful number eleven walks through the door, Eli will do anything to make her stay.
Isabella Sawyer’s employment agency can’t afford to lose Eli Crane’s business. Her plan: to personally take on the role of his PA, and secure her reputation with the wealthy elite in Chicago. But this beauty and her hot billionaire bad boy soon find themselves mixing business with pleasure in the most delicious ways. And passionate, stubborn Isabella won’t rest until she tames this wicked beast . . .
I’ve opened this book a couple of times but I haven’t really done much reading. I’m hoping to get started on this book for real, tonight. Wish me luck!
Hollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre | 4.25 out of 5
Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally | 4 out of 5
I read two books last week and enjoyed them both. Hollywood Dirt was the first book that I’ve ever read by Alessandra Torre but it won’t be the last and Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally is another Hundred Oaks book that I adored. So much goodness.
Solo by Jill Mansell

New to My Review Shelf
An Affair with a Notorious Heiress by Lorraine Heath
I did receive an eARC of a book that I requested because…it’s a Lorraine Heath book. Of course I’m getting it for review. I couldn’t request this one fast enough. Book 4 in the Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James series? Count me in!
There you have it, my week in books. How did your week go?
