Sorry this is delayed this week. I traveled by car on Friday to Vegas, then on Saturday to Denver then on Sunday to Overland Park, Kansas (just outside of Kansas City) to see my sister, brother-in-law and niece. It was a long drive but my youngest was with me and we had a good time. She's a really great traveling companion so the time didn't seem all that long. We'll be here for 4 or 5 days then we'll be moving on to Tennessee to see my parents. :)

Since then my sister and I have been busy catching up even though I just saw her in May when she was visiting San Diego. She had breast cancer and had a double mastectomy last year. Then just a few weeks ago had to have a complete hysterectomy as she had a football size fibroid in her uterus. The poor woman has been through a lot in the past year and still she's doing really well. She's now completely cancer free! Yay!
My sister is also an interior decorator and since she's not able to work due to her recent surgery I helped her business partner do an "installation" yesterday. It was pretty cool helping to decorate a person's living room. It turned out really well.

So what I read last week (which was very little):.
First for the week was Pieces of Olivia by Melissa West. The story was a really good one about a girl dealing with going to college and dealing with a horrible accident that changed her life. You can read my review here. 4 out of 5
Next was Silver Wolf Clan by Tera Shanley. This story was about a man who fights to save the life of a woman and ends up getting bitten by the creature he's fighting and turns into a werewolf. He has to deal with figuring it all out without any guidance. He then sees the woman again and realizes that she is his mate and has to cope with keeping her safe. It was a good story that I had a couple of issues with. 3.75 out of 5 (read for Book Binge)
Last for the week was Dangerous Territory by Emmy Curtis. This is a novella that begins the Alpha Ops series. The story is about two people who have a one night stand but then can't stop thinking of each other. Three years go by and then the man ends up having to save a reporter during a rescue and they get to meet again. Unfortunately the man has no respect for reporters whatsoever and this causes a ton of friction between the two. It was a good story and I really liked it. 4 out of 5
