Howdy everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed the last week and that you guys read all of the books. 🙂
This week was a pretty special week for my family. As you’re all aware, we’re a basketball family so the Super Bowl wasn’t the big game for us. Nope, the big game for us came on Saturday night when my daughter’s school took on my niece’s school for the first time since they started high school basketball. It was also Brenna’s senior night.
With all of Brenna’s struggles this basketball season, she was a giant ball of stress leading up to Saturday’s game because she knew that a lot of our family was coming to the game and she wasn’t sure if she would get in or not. Her coach was hyping her up, telling her she would but Brenna has long since given up on trusting her coach. I was stressing right along with her, mostly because I wanted this for Brenna. I wanted her to get a chance to show her coach that she’s good, dammit. So when she was called into the game, we were all super happy and I’m so proud of my baby girl. She went in and she gave everything she had and she played a damn good game. It was a bit late to try to save her team because Makenna was leading her team to an impressive win over our team but…that’s what Bren’s coach gets. LOL. She put all of her eggs into one player and that player didn’t deliver. If she played more team ball then maybe we could have had a chance but she didn’t and that’s what you get.
Makenna had a fantastic game and she led her team to that victory. I was super thrilled for her as well.
Here is a huge chunk of the girls cheering squad:
Yep. That’s all family. We’re super blessed to have such an amazing support system.
Anyway, on with the books…
Pretty Face (London Celebrities #2) by Lucy Parker
Highly acclaimed, award-winning author of Act Like It Lucy Parker returns readers to the London stage with laugh-out-loud wit and plenty of drama
The play’s the fling
It’s not actress Lily Lamprey’s fault that she’s all curves and has the kind of voice that can fog up a camera lens. She wants to prove where her real talents lie—and that’s not on a casting couch, thank you. When she hears esteemed director Luc Savage is renovating a legendary West End theater for a lofty new production, she knows it could be her chance—if only Luc wasn’t so dictatorial, so bad-tempered and so incredibly sexy.
Luc Savage has respect, integrity and experience. He also has it bad for Lily. He’d be willing to dismiss it as a midlife crisis, but this exasperating, irresistible woman is actually a very talented actress. Unfortunately, their romance is not only raising questions about Lily’s suddenly rising career, it’s threatening Luc’s professional reputation. The course of true love never did run smooth. But if they’re not careful, it could bring down the curtain on both their careers…
I haven’t started this book yet but I will once I get home from work and I’m looking forward to more Lucy Parker goodness.

I only read one book last week because I was distracted with other things but I enjoyed Act Like It. Richard is one of those grumpy heroes that just did it for me and I’m already looking forward to digging into Pretty Face.
