The Game by Anna Bloom #BookReview


I was a bit nervous when I started reading this book. I know absolutely nothing about Cricket, and I was about to read a book about two avid Cricket players. Luckily for me, I did not need to know anything about Cricket, to follow and enjoy this story. However, after finishing the book, I did find myself wanting to learn more about Cricket. My interest has definitely been piqued. 

I found this story by Anna Bloom to be quite lovely. It was easy to read, entertaining, and kept my attention. I did not get bored, and once I was into the story, I found myself wanting to finish it as soon as possible. Then, once it was over, I found myself wanting more. I think that is how the best books are. They give you a feeling of satisfaction, knowing the whole story, but at the same time you simply want more. 

Anna Bloom did a great job telling the story of Alyssa and Jase. She developed the characters and the plot well. It was a book that I thoroughly enjoyed. I wasn't bothered by the fact, that I know nothing about Cricket, and Cricket is a main part of the plot. She did a wonderful job keeping us in the know, without it being too laden with information or explanation. I feel like anyone could read and enjoy this book, no matter how much of a knowledge you have about Cricket. 

Definitely a great read, and worth getting a copy to enjoy yourself!! Read on to learn more about this story, the author, how to get a copy of your own, and how to enter the release blitz giveaway!!

Synopsis

When Alyssa Rivers accepts the coveted trainer's position with England’s top cricket team, The Red Cats, she knows it's going to be nothing short of hard work.
A woman in a man’s world, Lyssa not only has to prove she is the right person for the job, but she must earn the respect of cricket’s most elite players, including the surly team captain, Jase Willis. Known for his less than cooperative attitude on and off the pitch, he has the power to end her career before it’s even started … if she doesn’t end his first.
In a game where there is no room for big egos or bearing grudges, Lys and Jase are going to have to find a way to work together ... but can the woman who sacrificed everything for love find a way to reach the man whose only love is the game?

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,…

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…

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.



1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.
