This week was a pretty eventful week for me. I was busy at work and catching up on my shows but I also watched a lot of basketball (are you guys surprised? Ha!). Basketball started with Bren and Ken, who won both of their games this week (first against Harbor College and then Cerritos). Next up was Luke, who scored his first basket of the season on Saturday and his team finally won a game (they’re young…and not that good, haha) and then to close out the week, Meghan and her team beat Arizona Christian at home. That was Vanguard’s best defensive game all season, IMO. They were engaged from the jump and they never let up even though we were down 11 in the first quarter. Lots and lots of fun basketball.
Meghan came home with us on Saturday so Sunday morning was for cheap movie time so we went to see Forever My Girl and I enjoyed it. Not as much as the girls did but it was good. We also tried Blaze Pizza for the first time and that was great.
We watched The Super Bowl, too and had French Tip Sandwiches and Pasta Salad so I was a happy camper. You can never go wrong with those two things for dinner. Aside from that, I didn’t do much else but enjoy my time with the fam.

What I’m Currently ReadingSo Over You by Kate Meader
Series: Chicago Rebels #2
Published by Simon & Schuster, Pocket Star on December 4th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Three estranged sisters struggle to sustain their late father’s failing hockey franchise in Kate Meader’s sizzling Chicago Rebels series. In this second entry, middle sister Isobel is at a crossroads in her personal and professional lives. But both are about to get a significant boost with the addition of a domineering Russian powerhouse to the Rebels....
Isobel Chase knows hockey. She played NCAA, won Olympic silver, and made it thirty-seven minutes into the new National Women’s Hockey League before an injury sidelined her dreams. Those who can’t, coach, and a position as a skating consultant to her late father’s hockey franchise, the Chicago Rebels, seems like a perfect fit. Until she’s assigned her first job: the man who skated into her heart as a teen and relieved her of her pesky virginity. These days, left-winger Vadim Petrov is known as the Czar of Pleasure, a magnet for puck bunnies and the tabloids alike. But back then... let’s just say his inability to sink the puck left Isobel frustratingly scoreless.
Vadim has a first name that means “ruler,” and it doesn’t stop at his birth certificate. He dominates on the ice, the practice rink, and in the backseat of a limo. But a knee injury has produced a bad year, and bad years in the NHL don’t go unrewarded. His penance? To be traded to a troubled team where his personal coach is Isobel Chase, the woman who drove him wild years ago when they were hormonal teens. But apparently the feeling was not entirely mutual.
That Vadim might have failed to give Isobel the pleasure that was her right is intolerable, and he plans to make it up to her—one bone-melting orgasm at a time. After all, no player can perfect his game without a helluva lot of practice...
This series is shaping up to be such an enjoyable reading adventure for me. I didn’t really love the novella that started everything off but I did enjoy the first book and started this one just as soon as I finished the last book. I’m enjoying these characters, the humor and the romances. I’m looking forward to getting to know Isobel and Vadim a lot better. I knew there was some history between them in Irresistible You so I’m looking forward to digging into their story.
I hope to see more of Violet because she’s my favorite. Her and Bren. *sigh*
