The Weekly Recap (106)

Posted October 8, 2018 by Rowena in Books, Features | 2 Comments

It’s playoff time for baseball and right now, my Dodgers are leading their series against the Atlanta Braves 2-1. We lost last night and play again at 1:30 PM our time today to hopefully shut down the Braves for the rest of the postseason. I’m a giant ball of anxiety right now. I have faith but I’m still scared as all get out. Gah. I went to the game on Friday night with Bren, Ken and my brother Pete. We had the best time, cheered with all of the Dodger fans around us and lost our car in the parking lot. It legit took us about 45 minutes to find our car because we all swore it was somewhere that it wasn’t. You would have thought that we were all drunk but nope. We were all just airheads. LOL. I had zero reception at the stadium so I didn’t get many pictures at all but it was an amazing game and I was living more in the moment than playing on my phone so sorry guys. So Clayton Kershaw (our star pitcher) pitched 8 full innings and when he came out to warm up before the start of the ninth inning, the entire stadium erupted in cheers for him that turned to boo’s when the team manager Dave Roberts came out to wave him into the dugout to make room for our closer, Kenley Jansen but wow, can you imagine if Kershaw pitched all nine innings of a game? That would have been history right there. What a fun game and I don’t care what anyone says, Dodgers fans are nice dammit. Everyone that we sat next to were happy to be there and happy to cheer on our team. There were lots of strangers hugging and high fiving each other after great plays and at bats. I loved the atmosphere. Now, onto the books…

Knox of Iviland, the most ruthless warrior in All War history, has spent his life fighting others to the death, winning new realms for his king. Now the stakes are higher than ever. If he prevails in the battle for Earth, his slave bands will be removed. Victory is his sole focus…until he meets her.

On an arctic getaway with her foster sister, street tough but vulnerable Vale London is shocked to stumble upon a cave filled with ancient gods waging epic combat. When she is inadvertently drawn into their war, she is forced to team up with an unlikely ally—the sexy god who makes her burn with desire.

Though Vale is his enemy, Knox is consumed with lust and a fierce need to protect her. But only one combatant can triumph, and he will have to choose: live for freedom, or die for love.

I’m seriously hoping that this book picks up soon because right now, I’m mostly bored by what’s going on and waiting to feel something for the hero and the heroine. Pray for me.

    I’m so oblivious when it comes to baseball, never been to a game. I know the Cubs didn’t make it because of my husband yelling at the TV screen.

    I hope you’ve been having a good week!
