This week’s post is coming a little later than normal since I was sick as a dog over the weekend and called in sick on Monday to rest up then yesterday was spent catching up on everything that wasn’t done on Monday so here we are.
Twenty-five-year-old Sgt. Gray Phillips is at a crossroads in his life: stay in the Marine Corps or get out and learn to be a civilian? He’s got forty-five days of leave to make up his mind but the people in his life aren’t making the decision any easier. His dad wants him to get out; his grandfather wants him to stay in. And his growing feelings for Sam Anderson are wreaking havoc with his heart…and his mind. He believes relationships get ruined when a Marine goes on deployment. So now he’s got an even harder decision to make: take a chance on Sam or leave love behind and give his all to the Marines.
Twenty-two year old Samantha Anderson lost her husband to an IED in Afghanistan just two months after their vows. Two years later, Sam is full of regrets—that she didn’t move with her husband to Alaska; that she allowed her friends to drift away; that she hasn’t taken many chances in life. Now, she’s met Gray and taking a risk on this Marine could be her one opportunity to feel alive and in love again. But how can she risk her heart on another military man who could share the same tragic fate as her husband?
I’m on a Jen Frederick high. I want to read everything I can get my hands on by her right now. I’m going to start by finishing the Woodlands series and then I’ll see what I’m in the mood for after that. Probably Angel’s Blood by Nalini Singh or Hunting Ground by Patricia Briggs. One of those.

My favorite read of the week is hands down Jock Blocked by Jen Frederick. What a good book that was. I loved the romance, the conflict, everything. So freaking good! I didn’t have a least favorite book. I liked all the books I read last week so it was a good reading week for sure!
I’m not requesting as many review books this year because I’m really liking that I’m digging into my TBR pile. So no new review books this week.
There you have it, my week in books. How did your week go?
