#bfc this is my motivation. I bought this last summer at a Royal Bliss show. It only fits well enough to wear around the house, but I would love to wear it in public and not feel self conscious. I‘m motivated to be able to do so by the end of summer. @wanderinglynn

#bfc I‘ve been pretty silent this week—it‘s just been crazy. This is my only post this week so for my weekly check in: 3 points. I did finish my book goal and read 2 books this week: F-Bomb by Lani Lynn Vale and the tagged book (which was an absolute delight!) and I did manage to work out 5 days. It‘s been a heck of a week so that‘s all I‘be got. Wait—I‘ve got a bonus photo—I‘ll get that posted in a minute! @wanderinglynn

Not too many steps today (6551 to be exact) but I did a barre workout this morning, a load of laundry, went shopping for some undergarments with my oldest, lunch, the library, and picked up my wine. The hubs bought a new grill so we had a nice dinner of grilled pork chops, salad and fruit. It was 84 degrees here today and sticky. But it was a good day. Also finished my 1st book for the week. F-bomb by Lani Lynn Vale #bfc @wanderinglynn

Finished book 2 for #bfc. Ok, I finished it in bed this morning but still, I met my goals for this week. 5 workouts and 2 books. @CoverToCoverGirl this one wasn‘t too naughty since Beckett spent the majority of the book fighting his feelings but it‘s a nice set up for the rest of the series. I read book 2 a couple weeks ago and liked it better but it‘s still a pick. Hope everyone has a great day! @wanderinglynn #bfcweek1 #weeklycheckin

wow this book was good. I read the first half on Friday when I was off and spent every spare moment over the weekend and today trying to finish it. My #bfc book goal was 2/week and this is book one for week 1. I‘ve read a couple of her books before and liked them despite their length. This one was a little shorter and there‘s quite a bit going on. All the characters were well done with no ambiguity on who to root for! #goodguysalltheway

CoverToCoverGirl She definitely writes with an edge and keeps me riveted to the pages every time! Murder and mayhem always reign supreme in her books! I need to read Closer Than You Think before this one. I really like how all her books are inner connected. 2w

1. Cardio but I probably need strength training just as much, if not more 2. Inside, preferably where no one can see me 3. I‘d probably prefer music but I usually just workout to the sound of my own groans. 4. Erm, I don‘t know. I mostly hate it all but I do it because I need to. 5. I do kind of enjoy barre workouts in a masochistic kind of way

Truthfully, I‘m crap at nutrition and portion control. I know what to do but I don‘t really like most healthy foods and so I just don‘t do it. But I‘m giving it another whirl with my own spin on it.

Finished just this morning and I really liked it. It‘s the first in a series and if you like Robyn Carr, you‘ll love this. I loved getting to know the people of Safe Haven, South Carolina and the oldest O‘Dwyer brother, Sean. There‘s what I believe to be an on-going storyline to the brothers‘s past. Looking forward to the next book, which isn‘t out til fall.

Finished before work yesterday. Her books are pretty short, lots of witty banter, insta love, sexy fun times and usually some manner of danger and suspense. I always wish they were longer but she tends to put them out fairly quickly and lots of characters crossover throughout her many series. #braincandy

Took a break from #mcromance to #saveahorse. David just wants to sing, his family just wants him to stay home and run the ranch that‘s been in his family for generations. A talent agent discovers him singing in a bar. They fall in love but there‘s complications and misunderstandings. There‘s a happy ending and more books to come as each brother finds his HEA. It was an ok read and a quick one which is just what I wanted. 3 ⭐️

I hate hate hate how this ended. A huge cliffhanger and the main mystery isn‘t resolved at all. And while it was nice to revisit Logan and Ava, I really didn‘t feel like they acted at all like had in the past. I mean, yeah, it‘s 6 years later and kids and careers change things in a relationship but I didn‘t feel they had much of a connection. Even after they‘d “resolved” some of their problems. 👇

Pretty sure this is my favorite one so far. Sweeter and less kinky than the previous 4 but the story between Blaise and Kadence was still steamy and there was plenty of MC action. Hopefully the series will continue-I‘m dying to know more about Luck (now there‘s a kinky one for sure). #mcromance #mclight #plentyofsteamthough

theresidentromantic I'm itching for a new MC. Do u recommend the series? 2mo
CocoReads They aren‘t as dark as we normally like them, they‘re not very long and they‘re mainly focused on sex, except for this last one. I enjoyed them, but more for the brain candy aspects than any deep developing storyline. If they‘re in KU, I say go for it.

Ok, it was between a pick and a so so. Although Dante and Karina played a pretty big part in this one, the story focuses on Athena (Karina‘s best friend) and Romeo the president of the MC. This has been alluded to since the first book but Athena was underage and Romeo is, well, twice her age. No Daddy dom thing in this like with Dante and Karina but Athena does stupid stuff and Romeo is an ass for most of the book. It works out in the end but 👇

Pretty sure I‘ll be binging the rest of these. Day two, novella 2. And another flipping cliffhanger. I‘m less squicked out about the daddy/baby girl dynamic. It‘s still not for me and I usually hate it in books but it really does work here and the author explains it a bit in her note at the end. Going to have to start book 3 now to find out what the deal with Karina‘s Dad (the real one) is. Someone‘s been keeping secrets.

Finished this cliffhanger novella before work today, so now that I‘m home it‘s time to move in to book 2. Holy hell this was 🔥🔥. I‘m not normally a big fan of the daddy/baby girl thing but this was pretty well done and for Dante and Karina, it works for them. Plus I like how he tells her that it‘s their thing, just between them and the club doesn‘t need to know. It‘s not as well done as the LOKI books by AJL, but it‘ll do for now.

It‘s between a pick and a so so for me. I liked the premise, but I found Harper to be kind of wishy washy and Cameron not really relatable. I did like Bella, Cameron‘s daughter and a few of the side characters (Adam, Mallory, Connie). I‘ve got another book in the series so hopefully I‘ll enjoy it more. It could be my mood though—I‘m cranky today since I‘m headed into week 2 of the pharmacy plague. Really, it‘s just a bad cold but it‘s miserable.🤧

Fun read, I enjoyed the girl being the commitment shy party for a change and I enjoyed Jackson and Snnette together. I wish there had been more backstory to the “mystery” part of the story but overall a fun read. And I think I‘m now only one book away from finishing my #newyearwhodis list! @ElenaBaer @monalyisha

Had some Sister time today. We went to lunch and then, as is our custom, went to the bookstore. I needed zero of these but I bought them anyway. 🤣🤣

M.V I support your choices 😆💛 is the writing one a magazine or a book? Looks interesting 2mo
CocoReads @M.V its a magazine. I enjoy writing, more for my own personal enjoyment and stress relief. I‘ve realized I don‘t really have the urge to publish or the dedication it takes to really make a career out of it but I‘ve always had characters banging around in my head so sometimes I let them out to play. 2mo
Reviewsbylola I really enjoyed Quintland Sisters! 2mo

Ignore the boring prep books. My testing date is coming up fast and I‘m nowhere near prepared! The fiction and Tia‘s book are my reward. I won‘t read them yet but I want them ready to go!

I‘ve been on a book buying binge lately. This is actually from a couple weeks ago. American Gods is for book group this summer (we actually planned out the rest of the year), I needed a new copy of Helter Skelter as mine is held together by packing tape and rubber bands, and the rest just looked good!

SmartSassery Oh those are really cool! 💜 2mo
CocoReads @SmartSassery thanks! I‘m especially excited about Daisy Jones. Next to books, music would be my other love. I have no particular talent for it but I‘ve always enjoyed others talent for it. 2mo
CoverToCoverGirl I tried American Gods but DNF , just not for me, I hope you like it better. Helter Skelter is on my TBR, I‘ll get to it someday. 2mo

CocoReads @CoverToCoverGirl I think Gaiman is a good writer but not always for me. This is a chunkster so I‘m not really thinking I‘ll get through it. I‘ve read Helter Skelter many times. I‘d be up for a buddy read when you feel like it. 2mo
CoverToCoverGirl Absolutely would like to do a buddy read for Helter Skelter... moving it up my TBR pile now. 😎 2mo
CocoReads Just let me know when you‘re ready! 😁 2mo

So fun to get home from work and find this waiting on my kindle! So I might drop the two books I‘m in the middle of and read this. Her books aren‘t usually too long and I‘ve been loving the teasers for this.
