This week was for a bunch of different things. My continued exercising with my best friend Theresa and my sisters, the release of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
and attending my first ever Taco Festival.
Brenna and I stayed up until midnight on Friday so that we could watch To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix, the moment that it dropped. Both of us were not disappointed and thought that the movie captured the heart and the charm even though some of our favorite parts of the books were either not included or changed. Still, we LOVED Peter Kavinsky and thought Lara Jean was fabulous!
A group of us drove out to Downtown L.A. for the L.A. Taco Festival on Saturday and it was a lot of fun. Too bad I failed at my first ever taco festival because I went and ate a sushi burrito instead. I did end up eating a taco but for the most part, I ate everything but a taco. I tried bulgogi tots, bulgogi tacos and ate some of my friend’s deep fried quesadilla. I also got 3 Dodger hats for $20 so all in all, I called it a win of a day.
Friday morning, we got some pretty bad news about one of our friends. She passed away in her sleep and our girls played basketball together and she was my favorite basketball Mom so it really hit me hard. My sister and I took dinner over to their house on Sunday and spent a little time with the kids, her sisters and Aunts and the rest of the family. I’m still so saddened by the loss and really hope that 2018 will stop taking dear to me people. *sigh*
Now, onto the books…

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new Romancing Manhattan series, three brothers get more than they bargain for as they practice law, balance life, and navigate love in and around New York City.
Finn Cavanaugh is known for being a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. He owns a successful law firm with his brother and brother-in-law in Manhattan. On the rare occasion that he has down time, he spends it at his home in Martha’s Vineyard. But when Finn’s troubled niece goes to stay with him for the summer in Martha’s Vineyard, he’s reluctant to take time off from work. That is, until he meets his beautiful new neighbor, London.
London Watson is a Tony Award winning actress on Broadway. When tragedy strikes her family, leaving her alone and injured, she flees Manhattan for Martha’s Vineyard. Hoping she can figure out how to pick up the pieces of her life, London is convinced that she’ll never be able to return to the stage. But when she meets the charming young girl next door and her sexy uncle, they soon lure London out of her shell as she finally begins to heal from the wounds of her past.
But when London feels confident enough to return to the spotlight, she’s dealt another devastating blow. Will the newfound love between London and Finn be enough to conquer all? Or will it be over before it has a chance to grow…?
I’m about halfway done with this book and I’m seriously hoping that something happens to make me feel something
because so far, I think the hero is okay, I want to smack his niece and the heroine is blah. I will admit that I was drawn to this book because of the cover and I’ve always wanted to try this author before but so far, I’m not that invested in what’s going on in the story. To be blunt, I’m bored. We’ll see if that continues to be the case or if the story turns around. Wish me luck.
