Misadventures with a Rookie #BookReview

I am here today, to tell you about the latest addition to the Misadventures Series. Have y'all listened to my advice yet, and checked out this series? If not, please do. Such a talented group of authors are involved, and the books they have created have been enjoyable!!

This latest release, from New York Times Bestselling Author Toni Aleo, is no exception to the greatness. This book fit right in with the rest. It was a great read, and a real page turner. I love books that reel you right in, and hook you. This was well written, great plot, nice characters, and a nice amount of steamy hotness.

Now, you will love this book if you like your romance novels with some steamy scenes. Toni managed to write this one in a way, that if steamy is not really your thing, you can easily skim over those parts, and still be entertained by the story. It was a feel good story, that will pull at your heart strings, and probably make you cry a bit, but in the end, you will finish it satisfied and feeling good.

Bo is an awesome female lead. She is feisty, intelligent, vulnerable yet strong, and she has some past hurts that she battles. As the book progresses, you see her heal and become a better version of herself. You see her discover her inner happiness, and it is beautiful to watch. I really think you will find yourself cheering her on, and possibly wanting to give her a stern look or two.

Gus is a complex guy. You may struggle at times to like him. On occasion you may even find yourself contemplating if he is a good match for Bo, worthy of her sassy goodness. My best advice, is to remember not to judge books by their covers, and that people aren't always as they may seem. I think he will grow on you, and you will find yourself cheering him on. Surface level him, how he appears at first glance, is not the same as the real him. I think you will enjoy getting to know him.

This was a well written book. I actually loved that it was a book that centered on a hockey player. Most books that have athletes in them, focus on (American) Football or Baseball. I am actually a huge hockey fan, so this was a nice surprise for me. If you are not into sports books, I honestly think you can still love this one. Hockey does play a big part in the plot of the book, but it is included in a way that complements the plot, rather than overtakes or ruins it.

I absolutely think this book is worthy of being added to your must read list, along with the rest of the Misadventures Series books. This was my first book by Toni Aleo, that I have read, but it absolutely will not be the last. It is a wonderful series, full of well written, well rounded books, and this one fit right in, and definitely stood up to the good read status of the rest of the books.

So, please continue reading, to find a synopsis of the book, information about the author, information on where to get a copy of your own, as well as a link to a giveaway!!

Misadventures with a Rookie
by Toni Aleo, New York Times bestselling author  

Release Date: April 10th Goodreads


Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defense man Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.
So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?
Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.
But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Boredom, Boredom Go AWAY! #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to July's Blog with Friends Round-up!! Each month, a group of bloggers join Karen from Baking in a Tornado, and pick a theme for the month. Then each blogger creates a post, based on that theme. Posts can include anything the blogger wants. You may find poetry, recipes, short stories, DIY projects, crafts, informative posts, and anything else a blogger may choose. It is just a fun way, for us to all give our own take on a given theme.

This month's theme is Anti-Boredom Month. Did you know that July is National Anti-Boredom Month? I did not know this, until we were researching themes for our BWF posts. I think it is an excellent idea for Summer. I know when I was growing up, the most boredom I encountered, was usually in the Summer. The rest of the year, I would be so busy with school and activities, I did not have time to be bored. Then Summer would hit, and after the excitement wore off, the boredom would come visit regularly. 

I decided to compile a lists of activities…
