The Weekly Recap (138)

Posted October 14, 2019 by Rowena in Books, Features | 4 Comments

Hey guys!

I’m sorry I keep disappearing from this blog but the last couple of months have taken a lot out of mentally and physically. My Dad’s been in and out of the hospital and then he’s been recuperating at home and it’s slow going. He’s a good patient though so I do whatever I can to make him comfortable and I’m spending a lot of time with him too. On top of that, my nephew’s a senior in high school and my brother in law is the Booster Club President so we’ve been going to a lot of football games, Booster Club tailgates and everything else under the sun. I’m also still really busy at work. I’m starting to get comfortable in my new role and I’m a lot more confident in what I’m doing so I’m happy with my new place at work and I’m always busy so I’m never bored which means that I don’t have any time to blog. But I’m starting to figure out how to make time for all of my stuff so here’s hoping that you’ll finally see me around more often. Fingers crossed.

I’m also extremely sad that my Dodgers choked big time in the NLDS. I’m still not over last Wednesday’s loss but I hope my Lakers have better luck this season to wash away all these tears. LOL. I’ve looked like this for the last few days:

With how busy I’ve been in my personal life, my reading has really taken a nosedive. I’m not reading as much as I hoped I would, I’m 8 books behind in my Goodreads Reading Challenge. It’s just a whole lotta, whole lotta. But I did manage to get some books read this week.

Now, onto the books…

The first rule of this book club:You don't talk about book club.

Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott's marriage is in major league trouble. He’s recently discovered a humiliating secret: his wife Thea has always faked the Big O. When he loses his cool at the revelation, it’s the final straw on their already strained relationship. Thea asks for a divorce, and Gavin realizes he’s let his pride and fear get the better of him.

Welcome to the Bromance Book Club.

Distraught and desperate, Gavin finds help from an unlikely source: a secret romance book club made up of Nashville's top alpha men. With the help of their current read, a steamy Regency titled Courting the Countess, the guys coach Gavin on saving his marriage. But it'll take a lot more than flowery words and grand gestures for this hapless Romeo to find his inner hero and win back the trust of his wife.

Now that I’m reading again, I’m trying to make some headway on my review pile. This book doesn’t come out until next month but it’s up on my review queue and so far, I’m enjoying it. I’m enjoying the second chance romance between a married couple and seeing the hero fumble his way to getting his love life back on track with his …book club. It’s an interesting story with characters that I like so I’m hopeful that the rest of the book will be just as great as the beginning and then my first order of business will be putting the second book in this series on my wishlist. Good stuff.

  1. You’re back! And I’m currently not blogging (but my return is imminent, I just need to write some posts first). Sorry to hear your dad hasn’t been well. At least he’s a good patient, I’ve had family in hospital be absolute terrors and it makes it all the more draining for everyone else around them. Hope he’ll be better soon and sending you and your family all the positive vibes to help. I wish I had some books recs for you but I am slowly emerging from the worst book slump, currently I am reading Shelly Laurenston’s Call of Crows series and I’m really enjoying the craziness of it and they are some long books, so if I get through them I think I’ve conquered the slump.

    • Are we playing blog tag? Haha, I miss you, Becky! I hope you’re doing okay and that your reading picks up. I’m just reading all of the books on my review pile. I’ve chosen some great books to review so I’m not completely in need of recs though I would never turn any away. 😉

      My Dad is doing a lot better and he is a much better patient that the lady that was down the hall from him when he was in the hospital. She was in a lot of pain and just a nasty grump that it was hard to feel bad for her when she was just so awful to everyone around her. When my Dad was finally able to get up and move around, he wanted to go to her room and give her a piece of his mind. He didn’t, of course, but he sure did want to.
