The Weekly Recap (118)

Posted January 21, 2019 by Rowena in Books, Features | 6 Comments

This week was pretty quiet for me. I didn’t get into any fights, I wasn’t mean to anyone BUT I’m still failing in my don’t be a petty bitch resolution for this year. I need to just accept the fact that I’m always going to be that bitch. LOL. Welp.

I did make it out to all of Meghan’s and then Bren and Ken’s basketball games this week. Meghan is back from her injury and has played really well in both of her games this week. She was the top scorer of her game against Masters University and I felt bad because she played her ass off but came up short. Her team came back on Saturday and responded much better than they did in the game against Masters in a come from behind win so that was a lot of fun to witness.

As for Bren and Ken, they played against Bakersfield Community College…in Bakersfield and our family made the two-hour drive to Bakersfield to watch them play. Sure, a lot of the reason we made the trip is to visit one of my good friends Foti and his family. I got to meet Foti’s baby for the first time and spend time with his older son, Niko. It was a lot of fun going out there and touring his new, not quite ready to open restaurant in a historic building in Downtown Bakersfield. The building looks great and I’m happy for both Foti and his wife Maya. Their hard work looks good and I’m positive good things will happen for them in this new space. So pretty! Bren and Ken got the win in Bakersfield and Brenna was happy that she got to see Foti and Niko so it was a really good trip. Conference starts for Bren and Ken this week with a home game against Harbor College so that’s something to look forward to.

Now, onto the books…

Miss Responsibility meets Mr. Reckless

With her bridezilla friend on a DIY project rampage, bridesmaid Jane Denning will do anything to escape - even if it means babysitting the groom's troublemaker brother before the wedding. It should be a piece of cake, except the "cake" is a sarcastic former soldier who is 100% wicked hotness and absolutely off-limits.

Cameron MacKinnon is ready to let loose after returning from his deployment. But first he'll have to sweet talk the ultra-responsible Jane into taking a walk on the wild side. Turns out, riling her up is the best time he's had in years. But what happens when the fun and games start to turn into something real?

I have been itching to get this series read so I’m super thrilled that I’m finally reading this one. So far, it’s really good and every positive review that I read was spot on. I’m really enjoying this one and already, I can’t wait to jump into the other books in this series.

What I Read

The Wrong Game by Kandi Steiner | 2.5 out of 5
Blood Kiss (Black Dagger Legacy #1) by J.R. Ward | 4 out of 5

I had such high hopes for the Steiner but was pretty bored with the story in the second half of the book and then the first half was chock full of stupid immature games played by the heroine that had I not loved the hero so much, I probably would have DNF’d it.

Blood Kiss was the book that I read for book club and the first part of the book was super slow. It took me while to get into the book and because of that, it took me forever to read it. This was the first time that I finished the book the day of book club. I try to get the book read in plenty of time to put together some questions for a discussion but this month, I was late to all of that. Oh well, the story did pick up and I did end up really liking it so that’s something. Craeg and Paradise forever!

    • I have bad blood with JR Ward and her rabid ass fans so I only read Blood Kiss because it was chosen for book club. I’m going to go back to not reading her now, even though I actually liked the book.

    • Yeah, I think I’m too old to change my stripes. The petty princess is here to stay. LOL!

      I am LOVING the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series. So good!
