The Weekly Recap (117)

Posted January 14, 2019 by Rowena in Books, Features | 10 Comments

It was a pretty quiet week for me. I didn’t do much because the weather in L.A. is pretty dreary. Bren and Ken did have a game on Friday that I went to and I got into it with some punk ass white boy who was talking shit about Kenna like he knew anything about her. Calling her a lazy ass who doesn’t help her teammates like it was Kenna’s fault that his girlfriend can’t break a damn press. The thing about it though was she couldn’t get past one person who was guarding her really close. That girl was eating her up and stripping the ball from her time and time again. It is not Kenna’s fault that his girlfriend is a trash point guard and exposes herself with every game. The only bad thing about all of that was I went off on him about how his girlfriend is trash and his girlfriend’s family was sitting a few rows in front of me so now they know that I think their daughter sucks ass but *shrugs* it can’t be helped now. I meant it too but because her Mom has been nothing but nice to me, I felt a little bad.

Oh well. Don’t start nothing, won’t be nothing.

The thing about it was the boyfriend stood right in back of me, talking all of his shit about Kenna. Like he blamed Kenna for the loss but nope, that was a team loss and Kenna didn’t lead that game in turnovers so he better go somewhere with his dumbass. And why in the hell would you talk all this shit directly in back of Kenna’s family? How disrespectful is that? And Kenna would eat his girlfriend up if they were to go one on one so honestly…he’s an idiot. He was also analyzing the game like he was a coach or something and the fool doesn’t even play anywhere except the local parks and rec league.

Anyway, onto the books…

Two season tickets. One genius idea. Zero interest in a relationship.

The plan is simple: a brand new, hot, preferably funny, definitely single male will fill one of those seats for every Bears game at Soldier Field. And I’ll fill the other.

I can’t think of a better way to use the season passes I’d bought for my ex-husband. I am a woman of plans, and this one’s foolproof.

Until Zach Bowen offers to be my practice round.

He’s infuriating. Presumptuous and overbearing. And absolutely, undeniably gorgeous. Any woman with a heartbeat would be attracted to him, and mine picks up speed every time he speaks.

But as I said, I’m a woman of plans — and I’m not backing down on this one.

One night. One game. And then, his time’s up.

He can try to change the rules, but here’s the truth: he can’t win if he’s playing the wrong game.

The Wrong Game is a stand-alone, angsty, enemies-to-lovers sports romance.

I’m about halfway through this book and am enjoying it though I’m not seeing what is presented in the blurb. I’m going to be reviewing this one with Holly so you’ll see what I end up thinking of the book as a whole on Book Binge soon. I hope this one continues to be good.

What I Read

Governess Gone Rogue (Dear Lady Truelove #3) by Laura Lee Guhrke (eARC) | 4 out of 5
Hoops Holiday (Hoops #2.5) by Kennedy Ryan (Kindle Unlimited) | 4.25 out of 5
Right Where I Want You by Jessica Hawkins (eBook) | 4 out of 5

My favorite read of the week goes to Hoops Holiday by Kennedy Ryan. It was such a sweet and fun romance between two people that were perfect for each other. There’s some angst and even though the book was super short, the romance was done in a believable way and I just adored it to pieces.

What I Reviewed

Hate Notes by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward | 4 out of 5
Famous in a Small Town by Emma Mills | 4 out of 5

  1. Ugh, I hate when people are talking trash, at least you were trying to put him in his place. He sounds like a right jackass with his coaching from the bench, like he thinks he even knows what he’s talking about. He should stay in his lane and learn something about supporting the team rather than trashing his girlfriends teammates, who does he even think he is? I hate folks like that.

    The Wrong Game sounds like a fun read, might have to check that out. And I have Ayesha at Last to review too. Fingers crossed for both us that we enjoy it (I think I will).

    Hope you have a good week.

    • Yeah, he definitely pissed me off. He’s a little asshole for real.

      I’m more than halfway through The Wrong Way and the heroine is annoying but I do like the hero. The writing style is weird though, like..I don’t even know how to explain it. The dialogue is cheesy and blah. Still, I’ll finish it and hope it doesn’t end up sucking in my opinion.

      Have a good week to you too, Becky!

    Ugh. That sucks about the guy. I try to be positive when I’m cheering Joey and his team on. Cause you never know who may be in the crowd.

    • Me too. I only ever really criticize Brenna and Kenna during games but I can criticize the shit out of them. They’re mine so for this guy to sit there and talk all his shit that way just pissed me off. I mean, even if it he was right, I don’t care…shut up and stay in your lane.
