The Weekly Recap (103)

Posted September 17, 2018 by Rowena in Books, Features | 8 Comments

So this week was a pretty quiet week. I stuck close to home and didn’t really do much outside of my normal routine and then my sister Delene went out of town for the weekend and I was left in charge of her kids.

I’m the Aunt that lets the kids do whatever they want so when Luke and Brookey wanted to film a YouTube video, I shook my head a little, rolled my eyes a little more and then helped them make that happen. Brenna and Jenna were on board with this whole thing so they set it all up. Made them a background, got their challenge food prepared and even practiced lines with both kids. Yeah, I’m rolling my eyes too. They were really into this whole thing. Makenna was cleaning up our mess and making lunch, she was also in charge of the music and let me tell you, she’s the worst music director for a kid’s video because she had the most inappropriate twerking music on in the background. AND LUKE AND BROOKEY LOVED IT!

So they wanted to do a “What’s in my Mouth Challenge” video where their assistants Brenna and Jenna feed them food while they’re blindfolded and they had to guess what they were eating. All was going well until Jenna fed Luke some cheese and Luke started gagging and then threw up. We had to stop production because the cameraman (me) almost peed in her pants from laughing so much. Excuse the picture to the right, that’s right before Luke puked and it’s a screenshot from the video. It’s two days later and I’m still laughing my ass off.

As soon as we finish editing the video and if we can get Luke’s Mom to let us post it on YouTube, I’ll let you guys know. Needless to say, Luke’s Mom yelled at us to stop letting Luke do stupid things. LOL. Also? Their YouTube channel name is LPGameMaster and B-Dub, Hahahahahahaha. These freaking kids.

Now, onto the books…

A bride wasn’t in his plans . . .

The last thing Marcus, the Duke of Autenberry, expects to see after sleeping off a night’s drunken shenanigans is a woman being auctioned in the village square. Before he can think about the ramifications, he buys her, thinking he’s winning the girl her freedom. Instead, he discovers he’s bought a wife.

A duke wasn’t in hers . . .

Alyse Bell is almost rid of the shackles that bound her in a name-only marriage, but the day her friend promised to purchase her in a wife auction, he vanishes, leaving her to face a mob of unsavory bachelors intent on owning her body and soul. But the appearance of a wicked, wealthy stranger changes her path forever.

The road to ruin . . .

Marcus doesn’t know what to do with the impertinent chit who clearly isn’t duchess material! Insisting their marriage isn’t legitimate, they leave for his estate in Scotland, hoping to devise a plan to get rid of each other. However, on a journey fraught with misadventure, their attraction grows and Marcus realizes he’ll do anything to keep this fiery woman for his own.

I didn’t get any reading done this weekend because I was busy doing absolutely nothing but hang with the kids watching movies so I need to get this book read this week because I have to prepare our book club discussion and game for our meeting next week Monday. Wish me luck. I’ve only read part of Chapter 1 and the hero just woke up in a pile of horse shit so…okay then.

What I Read

Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan (eBook) | 4.75 out of 5
Block Shot by Kennedy Ryan (eBook) | 4 out of 5

I loved both Long Shot and Seduction of a Highland Lass so those are my favorite reads of the week. I really enjoyed Block Shot too but Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe was slow and low key boring to me so that gets my least favorite read of the week.

  1. The video drama sounds hilarious! Although after hearing it I totally wouldn’t trust you watching my kids (if I had any) because you know they’d be returned to me bouncing off of the walls or ready to collapse, there would be no middle ground! Glad you had so much fun though it does sound funny.

    • ..and she’s back! Welcome back, Becky! I loved hearing all about your trip to New York. My sisters and I have been talking about taking a sisters trip somewhere and New York came up. I’m low key excited.

      Hey, your kids would love staying at Aunty Wena’s romper room. They’d have so much fun with Luke and Brooke. LOL.

  2. I hope you like Sophie Jordan’s book and yeah the beginning starts off crazy hehe I just listened to a podcast raving about Long Shot and I really want to read it soon. I adore Maya Banks’ historical’s, they are amazing.

    • Hey Renee! Yeah, I enjoyed the Jordan book but it’s not a favorite or anything. There were little things that bothered me but overall, it was solid.

      Long Shot is good. Give it a shot! 🙂
