Reading Update and I’m Back to Exercising—Finally

I have really been slacking in my exercise. I just couldn’t seem to get back to step aerobics and the cold temperatures kept me indoors (I hate walking in the cold). Then other stuff just happened and my motivation kind of took a nose-dive. But on Monday I decided to finally get off my butt and do something. And I did it on Tuesday, too! Let’s see if I can stick with it.

I know, I have some really strange timing. I wait until three weeks before my surgery to start exercising again. Am I crazy or what?

Here’s what I read since my last update:

Book 3

Title: A Mercenary to Love

Blurb from the book: When computer genius Sampson Morales’ latest security measures fail to prevent the kidnapping of an Allied Planetary Union Ambassador’s child, he has no choice but to track and save the kid himself…especially if he wants to be paid.
    Zasha Gustaf believed fighting with the Humans First movement could redeem her mercenary past, but when they use her intel to kidnap an innocent, she starts to have her doubts. Running into the only man she’s ever loved and who’s on the same trail is a sign. She commits to helping Sampson stop this group from sacrificing another blameless person, but she has another motive.
    Sampson and Zasha have been down this road before, except last time it led to betrayal and heartache. He can’t trust her, and her attempts at redemption are met with constant rebuke, but when everyone, even the universe, is in danger, relying on each other is the only way forward.
    Is a second chance possible for either of them…or will the past repeat itself?
My thoughts: Thoroughly enjoyed this one. It appears this may be the end of the series as the next series is about the AI in this one (and I'm just not sure about that...yet). But this was a fun series, so if you like non-techy sci-fi romance, give this a try!

Forty-six years ago today I was enjoying my last day as a civilian. You see, forty-six years ago tomorrow, I joined the Army. Man. That’s a long time ago! But it doesn't feel like it. My brain still thinks I'm young. My body...not so much!

Happy Reading!

Glad you're back at it.
I agree with the body and mind observation.

Maria - That's what I'm hoping!

Alex - If only the body could agree with the mind!! :D
