Wednesday Reads and Feeling Bummed

By the time this posts, I’ll be sitting on a plane. California, here I come! Here’s what I finished reading this week:

Blurb from Book: As the son of a formidable Breed warrior, Aric Chase has been devoted to the Order all his life. With his training completed, all he needs is one successful mission before he can join the fight to destroy the Order’s chief nemesis, Opus Norstrum. His rare ability to daywalk lands Aric an assignment in Montreal, where he learns he’s to be teamed with another new recruit, a beautiful, but tough-as-nails Breedmate named Kaya Laurent.
    Independent and driven Kaya wants nothing more than to become a full-fledged member of the Order. Having grown up in squalor and neglect on the streets of Montreal, she longs for the close-knit family she’s found during her training to be a warrior. Eager to prove herself, she is thrilled to be given the chance at a key operation—even if she must share the mission with an arrogant, far-too-seductive Breed male who’s practically Order royalty.
    Their unwanted partnership soon erupts into a desire neither of them can resist. But when Kaya’s past reaches out from the shadows to call her back, she must decide between protecting a dark alliance that could shatter her dreams of joining the team and a truth that could not only forfeit Aric’s faith in her, but bring the enemy right to the Order’s door.
My thoughts: I’m still enjoying this series, although this one was a little slower than usual. I think there are getting to be quite a few characters to remember and they all seemed to pop up in this book, too. But it took some interesting twists (one surprised me, the other did not) and I look forward to reading the next book.

I’m super bummed the Penguins lost in round 2. Which means I don’t have to worry about looking for a place to watch Game 7 tonight (not that I was worrying that much). At least I still have the Vegas Golden Knights to root for and when round 3 starts, you can bet I’ll find a place to watch the games. I’ll only be at Mom’s a week, though, so I’ll be able to watch most of those games at home, I’m sure.

Happy Reading!

And losing to the Capitals just sucks.
Safe travels!

Can't say I'm sorry to see the Penguins derailed, though I certainly feel your pain. Bruins were clearly outclassed by Tampa, much more than I expected.
