It’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated this feature on the blog so I figured, it was time to get back to it. In the time since I last updated, Christmas came and went, New Years came and went and Caiden came and went. The BYU kids came home for the holidays (well after Christmas but before New Years) but they’re back at school and our days have gotten back to normal.
My car was in the shop for a little bit because I needed to replace my power steering pump and hose and also my alternator and then my battery because my power steering pump was leaking directly onto my alternator and messed everything all up so I had to pay to get that fixed so my car is back and everything is a lot better. I think. I’m broke as shit but everything is fixed so thank goodness.
Now, onto the books…

Dear Lady Truelove...
My twin brother and I need a new mother, though Papa insists he'll never marry again. Must be nice, brainy, and fond of cats...
Lady Truelove may be London's most famous advice columnist, but James St. Clair, the Earl of Kenyon, knows his wild young sons need a tutor, not a new mother. They need a man tough enough to make his hellions tow the line, and James is determined to find one.
Miss Amanda Leighton, former schoolteacher and governess, knows she has all the qualifications to be a tutor. And while female tutors are unheard of, Amanda isn't about to lose the chance at her dream job because of pesky details like that. If Lord Kenyon insists on hiring a man, then she has only one option.
Jamie isn't sure what to make of his new employee, until he realizes the shocking truth—beneath the ill-fitting suits, his boys' tutor is a woman. An unconventional, outspoken, thoroughly intriguing woman. Despite Amanda's deception, he can't dismiss her when his boys are learning so much. Yet Jamie, too, is learning surprising lessons—about desire, seduction, and passionate second chances.
I really, really need to get a jump start on my reading for this year but I blame Game of Thrones. I’m reading this book but I’m mostly watching season 3 of Game of Thrones. I had forgotten how much rage I felt every time Joffrey was on the screen. As for the book, I’m enjoying it so far. The heroine is pretending to be a boy to be a tutor for a set of boy twins…and the back and forth between her and the hero is fun.
What I Read
The One You Fight For (The Ones that Got Away #3) by Roni Loren | 4 out of 5

I enjoyed all of the books that I read in the last couple of weeks. I think my favorite of the bunch though would probably be The One You Fight For by Roni Loren. It was hard to get through but I enjoyed it and I cried a lot. I thought Loren handled that romance so well. I don’t have a least favorite, not this week anyway.
