Conquer Your Love (Surrender Your Love #2) — WOW

3 Jul

Conquer Your Love (Surrender Your Love #2) --- WOW

I’m glad I found this series by J.C. Reed. I enjoy her writing and look forward to reading more of her work.
I really didn’t expect to like this one but I’m glad I read it. After the end of Surrender Your Love, I just had to see what happened next.
Yes, the love scenes border on too much but oh man they are nice and spicy. Overall, nice continuation to the story and the mystery thrown in there was quite nice.
I love Jett’s character and his dominance. Although that is a played out theme right now with so many alpha males in current romance books, Jett has enough of the right mix of dominance, love, and respect to make him loveable.
Brooke seems to me like one of those girls that swoons over hot guys, regardless of the danger they pose. Who can blame her with Jett around? Because I like Jett, I understood her reactions to him and was happy to see her come to terms with their attraction as well.
Now I’m waiting patiently for book 3, Treasure Your Love, to see how their HEA turns out.

ING Miami 1/2 marathon

ING Miami 1/2 marathon

My 1st 1/2 marathon. I was standing there waiting for the gun to go off, signaling the start of the run. I kept thinking: This is it.
What a rush! Crossing the finish line was a moment that changed me. Even more memorable was that I ran/completed the marathon with my husband. I hope to do a full before I’m 30. The clock is ticking…..

Fitness Friday

Fitness Friday

In my quest to eat clean, lift mean, and live lean….I’ve come across some pretty awesome people that have helped me tremendously. This photo is one I pull up often when I want to remind myself that there are no limits to what I can achieve and my biggest obstacle is only myself. I’m trying really hard to eat clean. That’s the last and hardest leg of my journey. My daughter is now 2 and I’m not back to my prebaby weight yet. I often get discouraged but I see pictures of what I can do when I put my mind to it and I push forward. One day at a time. One meal at a time.
I’m doing a 12 week online challenge (against no one, just a personal challenge) and am currently on week 4. This is the fist week that I have actually eaten clean all the way through. Protein, lean meat, green salads/veggies, the whole nine. It feels great. I’m supper proud of my progress this week. While I’ve been more than tempted to reach for the bad foods, I’ve stuck it out and the reward is sweet!
This week alone my waist line is looking trimmer, my arms are toning up, and my legs are getting serious definition.
I’m not looking to be a bodybuilder or anything along those lines. I simply want to reach a happy place where I know I’m the best ME. I’m a step closer everyday. Whew! Feels good to have come this far. This is my lifestyle now. I workout everyday, plan my meals, and when I lay down at night…I feel proud of my hard work.
Sure some days I’m so sore I can barely walk, but I stretch and hit it again. HAM! My body is slowing changing. WOW that feels good. Since eating is the hardest, I’m taking the time to plan so I can succeed. I’m prepared and therefore I’m not likely to fall into the temptation had I not had all my healthy items ready to go. Healthy choices::healthy life!

How I feel when I get these every Friday.

I love this flower and I look forward to seeing them after work everyday. I do not get the same flowers all the time. Every week I get different ones. My hubby gets them for me. He knows how much they make me smile and I let him know, throughout the week, how much I appreciate that small detail from him.  ❤

Nothing more exciting than a bunch of straight men (mostly) dancing half naked for money. Yum. Did I mention half naked?
I’m having serious Channing Tatum cravings lately. But I think it’s justifiable. I mean he can dance as we all saw in Step Up, he can fight and kick butt the likes of Mel Gibson in Braveheart, he can make you re-fall in love with him even if you have no memory of the 1st time, he’s a riot as a very old high schooler, he’s a Joe, and well of course he’s the main-event male dancer.

Prayer to the higher powers:
If there’s a Fifty Shades movie please let Mr. Tatum be Christian.
