Hate the Game is a story about Ava, a relationship consultant by day,  single woman by night, who puts her heart into finding love for others. Ava, like all of us, has been hurt from a previous relationship and isn’t quite ready for love. So, you know what they say…..

Sometimes when you least expect it, love comes right to your front door. It has never happened to me but I also do not live in an apartment building like Ava. Side note: one of things that made this book come to life for me is that it is set in the heart of Chicago. Coincidentally, I was actually in Chicago when I was reading this book, but lets get back to Ava…..Ava coincidentally runs into Theo in her apartment building one night after coming home from work.

Ava is given an assignment at work that Theo’s career makes for an ideal opportunity for them to spend more time together and their relationship starts to bloom. However, nothing is as it seems……does love conquer all? You will have to read the book!

This book is very well written and the story line is very exciting. I really enjoyed reading this book as it had a plot twist I didn’t see coming. I give this book four “sumo wrestlers”. See rating system here. You can purchase the book on Amazon and it is available for free if you have Kindle Unlimited.

Special thanks for the author, Holly Hall, for giving me this book for free in exchange for an honest review. My review is solely based on my opinions of the book and are 100% my own.

 

Foundation Focus Freedom by Terence Young, M.D. Book Review

41qaLSE7fLL

Foundation Focus Freedom: The 3 Step Process for Transforming your Mindset, Overcoming your Fears and Harnessing Unimaginable Success by Terence Young, M.D.  This is quite a powerful title but very fitting for this book!

I was contacted by the author of this book to see if I would be interested in reviewing it. Clearly, it is not my preferred genre but I’m a firm believer in “The only thing holding you back is you” and this book seemed to follow that as well. Also, the fact that the author was a successful Ob-Gyn for over twenty years and now turned entrepreneur on personal growth had me intrigued.

Be, Do, Have

This book is written to work in all areas of your life. It is laid out well in how the author describes how the power is within you to transform your life . The author provides you with the DO  to transform your thinking into the actions to HAVE the visualization of your imaginable success. How to identify your limiting beliefs, the fears and influences that are subconsciously holding you back to discovering your core values, defining success and failure and so much more. This isn’t just a book that you just read in a few hours, it is a book that you have to do the work.  To aid you in the Be, Do, Have process, the author provides a website to access free worksheets and bonus materials that will assist you throughout the book.

In my eyes, Dr. Young clearly had already achieved the unimaginable success but continued in his own personal growth to help others achieve their success through this book. I highly recommend reading it and utilizing the worksheets.

The first two chapters of the book are available here. Foundation Focus Freedom: The 3 Step Process for Transforming your Mindset, Overcoming your Fears and Harnessing Unimaginable Success is available for pre-order on Amazon and will be released on December 4, 2018.

This book involves a family that each year comes together in July to meet at the family’s summer house in the Cape. The family consists of the parents, Arthur and Gloria, who have divorced after 46 years of marriage, and their three adult daughters. Maggie, Jess and Virgie. Maggie is the micro manager of the family and is married to Mac and they have 3 kids and the idealistic marriage. Jess and her husband, Tim, have 2 kids and are on the verge of divorce, the final sister, Virgie, is a workaholic who idolizes her father and is in a new relationship with Jackson, R.N.  The families converge upon the Cape house and secrets are revealed. Gloria arrives with her new boy toy, Gio, and Arthur must  come to terms with their divorce. This book is so beautifully written and the author makes you feel like you are vacationing along with the family. I became part of the family and  wanted to aid and comfort each family member. Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an advanced copy.

The Summer of Good Intentions: A Novel

Possibly my new favorite book! A Glimpse of a Dream

51jZYJoItGL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

First off I would like to say that I have never read a book
that I have felt so much emotion. I cried tears of happiness,
tears of sadness and tears of frustration.
This book starts off with two children, Teaghan and Kane,
who are brought together by unfortunate circumstances,
and meet at Raven’s Peak.
The book continues with Teaghan and Kane growing up
and finding love, tragedy, loss, and ultimately family.
I absolutely loved this book and is probably one of my new
favorites.
