I decided to read Slamdunked by Love because of the revenge subplot. I am in no way, shape, or form a basketball fan, so at first I was hesitant. The game scenes were fast paced and kept to a minimum, so they didn’t bother me, and I even found them somewhat exciting. For basketball. Just kidding! But, seriously, if you avoid sports stories because you don’t have an interest in sports, the book focuses on the behind the scenes aspects of the game, keeping the actual gameplay brief. Don’t let that stop you from picking up the book. Read more

Both Jun and Kai are flawed, flawed characters. Jun is trying to raise her son on her own, after being rejected by her tiger mother, who died shortly after. They never reconciled, leaving Jun wounded and defensive. Her mother was perfect and wise, and Jun obviously screwed up by listening to a smooth talker when she was 19 and ending up pregnant and abandoned by both the father AND her mother.

While I enjoyed this novel overall, a few things didn’t work for me. Every time Madison stuck her nose into Jackson and Mollie’s business, I wanted to wring her neck. Every time Mollie felt guilty or sorry for Madison, I wanted to wring her neck. Madison had zero depth, and it made her irritating. The fact that anyone cared about how she felt was astonishing, considering she’s the one who divorced Jackson at a time when he needed her support the most. Ugh! Read more

Jennifer Bernard dropped by the virtual offices to celebrate the release of her latest, All of Me. Check it out!
When I started writing this post, it was supposed to be about my five favorite baseball players, but then I realized that on top of my list was Crash Davis. Don’t know him? That might be because he’s the completely fictional catcher played by Kevin Costner in the movie Bull Durham. I’m still crushed that Crash is not a real person. So I changed things up a little, and now offer you … my five favorite baseball movies!
