Week in Review (77)

Posted January 29, 2018 by Rowena in Books, Features | 0 Comments

This week was pretty relaxing but instead of reading a lot of books, I watched a lot of shows. I also drove out to Santa Barbara with my sisters to watch my niece and her team take on a good friend of ours from our club basketball days and her team.

Meghan’s team got smashed and Lauren had a great game. Poor Vanguard. Poor Meghan. At least, she got a home cooked meal delivered to her dorm room the next day. Better luck next time, Meg!

Now, onto the books…

In the new Play-by-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Final Score, opposites attract when a figure skater and hockey player lace up their skates--and go for the gold...

Will "Mad Dog" Madigan is making his second trip to the Winter Games, and he couldn't be happier. Hockey is his life and playing for the U.S. team is a privilege. Then he meets U.S. figure skater Amber Sloane. She's beautiful, ambitious and driven--everything Will desires in a woman. He would love to show Amber how hot life off the ice can be.

Amber has skated her entire life, sacrificing everything in the hopes of one day winning gold. Now she's competing for the third and final time. She intends to win, and nothing's going to get in her way--until she meets Will. He's an irresistible charmer, and before long Amber is wondering if this sexy hockey player is the perfect guy to show her some moves outside the rink.

But after all the medals have been awarded, Will and Amber will have to decide if what they have together is just a fling or a real shot at true love.

I’m looking forward to digging into this book and continuing this series. I hope it’s as good as the last couple of books that I enjoyed from this series. Fingers crossed.

What I Read

Man Hands (Man Hands #1) by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Tby | DNF
Brooklynaire (Brooklyn Bruisers #4) by Sarina Bowen | 4.75 out of 5

My favorite read of the week goes to Brooklynaire because that was a damn good romance. It was everything that I hoped it would be and Nate was the hero that I wanted him to be just as Becca was as great as I expected. I love the hell out of this series and this book held up that love. I hope that there will be more books for this series. I never want it to end.

On the other hand, I tried to get into Man Hands without much success. I couldn’t get into it so after about a third of the book in, I called it quits. I wasn’t a fan of…anything really. The heroine cried too much, the other characters were just meh and I wasn’t all that interested in continuing so I quit. Can’t win them all, I guess.
