Review: The Big Break by Cara Lockwood

May Contain Spoilers

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.

Review: I Wish You Were Mine by Lauren Layne

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

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!

Guest Post and Giveaway: All of Me by Jennifer Bernard

 
 
 

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!

Review: Mine Tonight by Lisa Marie Perry

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

Mine Tonight is the second book in The Blue Dynasty series that’s I’ve read.  This didn’t revolve around football, but instead delved into the background details behind  Alessandro Franco’s illegal gambling ring, as well as his despicable actions against his son, star NFL player Santino Franco.  When all is said and done, Mine Tonight is about two wounded souls who were both betrayed by the very people that should have protected them: their parents.
