REVIEW – SEAL’s Defiance – Elle James

SEAL's Defiance


Declan “Irish” O-Shea, member of Navy SEAL Team 10, is in Somalia to take down a rebel group that is taking over villages and killing the locals.  During the mission, things go awry and Irish is injured and left for dead.  Lucky for him, Dr. Claire Boyette had seen it happen and saw where his body landed.  She hid him under brush and debris while the rebels circled around looking for survivors, then when it was safe, took him to her tent in the village she was staying in to tend his wounds and let him heal.

When the rebels arrive in her village, Irish slips out the back and escapes.  Claire and her colleague are taken by gunpoint to tend the rebel leader who was injured in the raid.  After patching him back together, Claire is taken to a tent and left while her colleague is taken somewhere in an SUV.  Luckily Irish followed Claire and rushes in to rescue her as she is about to be raped by one of the rebels.  They manage to make their way to Irish’s camp to safety.

They get intel of where Claire’s colleague may be, and set off on a mission to rescue him.  Read to find out what happens!

REVIEW – Infinite Possibilities – Lisa Renee Jones

Infinite Possibilities


It’s the continuation of Liam and Amy’s story … still good because it’s them, but nothing can measure up to the first book and them coming alive when they meet each other and fall in love.  You’ll remember that Amy had run off at the end of the prior book because she overheard Liam having a conversation about her and suspected he was somehow involved with whoever is out to get her.  He tracks her down at the start of this one and the reconcile.  She works with him and his security guy to try to put together pieces that she’s remembering, and that things that they are finding out in their investigation.

She finds out big info about her brother in this one that leads us to book 3 to see what will come of what she’s found out.

DAY 11

Day 11  –  100 Days of Happiness

A slightly lower number on the scale is making me happy lately!


I had some surgery a few months ago with a long recovery process, and when I was finally able to do any exercise, it was exhausting! I went for an extremely slow 10 minute walk on the treadmill the first day, and you would have thought I had just run a marathon. I felt like a mountain hit me! It’s now about 2 1/2 months later, and I’m working out hard every day to try to get healthier. It’s still exhausting as I continue to get my strength back, but exhausting in a good way. 🙂 I’m feeling better than I have in years. YAY! #100DaysofHappiness

DAY 10

Day 10  –  100 Days of Happiness

I’m still a day behind and a dollar short. *sigh* I made up Day 9 yesterday morning and planned to do 10 last night and totally forgot because I had already done one that day. LOL Sorry folks, ditzy blonde at work. I’m doing both NOW this time so I’m truly caught up. haha

Shopping brings me happiness!


Well, online shopping that is. I was on Amazon for hours yesterday perusing around trying to decide what to get the hubby for our anniversary, coming up later this month. There are so many cool things out there. I also spent more time looking around Etsy last night … people make awesome stuff! #100DaysofHappiness
