I didn't like Sasha!
Never Date a Doctor: A Life Lessons Novel - Melanie A. Smith
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. *insert sigh* *insert another sigh* I wanted to love, to even LIKE this book but I struggled, to be honest. Mostly, because of two things. Only Sasha has a say, and she grated on me, she really did. I can't say WHY, and I'm more annoyed that I cannot voice WHY she got my back up and got on my nerves, but she did. And because Caleb isn't given a voice, I very nearly dumped it, because she drove me nuts at points! AND First person/present tense. Even if caleb had been given a voice, with the book written this way, I would have enjoyed it a bit more, I think. You could see the "situation" developing at the hospital, with the other nurse, coming at ay like a train wreck, and you can't stop, but it is nice for everything to be laid out for you once in a while. There were SOME surprises though, so i enjoyed that. I'm sorry, a short review, but I really am struggling to make sense. I finished it, though, and I promised myself that I would give a book 3 stars if I finished it, even if I didn't really like so. Will I read other books in the series? Probably not, no. By this author? I'll give Ms Smith another try, certainly. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

I CAN'T MAKE THIS UP: LIFE LESSONS by Kevin Hart
I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons - Kevin Hart,Neil Strauss

 

I recently saw most of the film THE UPSIDE, starring Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman. I missed a little of the beginning but I watched and enjoyed the rest. I was surprised by how much I felt for Kevin Hart in the film, because I'd previously only seen him in commercials or very short comedic bits and he got on my nerves, to be honest.

 

In this book he tells the story of his life, his successes and failures, his positive and negative points, his love for his mom and family, and his willingness to work hard and get it done. It was not all fun and games, because a fair amount of the time he and his first wife were constantly fighting, (he was cheating, she might have been), and so on.

 

What impressed me the most was his ability to shrug things off and stay positive and I'm going to try to take that ability and incorporate it into my life.

 

This was hilarious and informative and fun to listen to, if maybe just a tad too long.

 

Highly recommended, especially to those who love to listen to the memoirs of comedians.

 

*I purchased this audiobook from Audible with my hard earned cash.*

TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Never Date a Doctor by Melanie A. Smith
Never Date a Doctor: A Life Lessons Novel - Melanie A. Smith

@XpressoTours, @debbiereadsbook, #Adult, #Contemporary, #Romance, 3 out of 5 (good)

 

From best-selling author Melanie A. Smith comes the first book in a new series of steamy contemporary medical romance standalone novels about life lessons that break all the rules. What’s the first rule of nurse’s club? That’s right: Never date a doctor. Which Sasha Suvorin has no intention of doing anyway, since she’s a nurse at Rutherford Hospital by day and working on her master’s degree by night. Who has time for dating, much less dating someone you work with? Bad idea much? That is, until the sexy British Dr. Caleb Thompson starts at her hospital. It also doesn’t help that he’s exactly her type with his dark hair, blue eyes, and rockin’ bod. Or that he’s not your typical arrogant and bossy surgeon. But Sasha isn’t so easily convinced, and she soon discovers Dr. Hottie has a past that puts a stop to whatever she might have been feeling before anything ever starts between them. Unfortunately, working together means facing temptation. Every. Single. Day. Is Sasha strong enough to resist what might just be the perfect man? And if she gives in, will Cal’s past stay in the past? Sasha may be used to playing it safe, but life has a way of teaching its lessons … one way or another.

Monday Musings: When Things Change

When you lose your way in the middle of your journey,

When things start going wrong halfway through,

When there is an eclipse after a sunny morning,

That’s when you feel the pain so acutely.

But that’s also the time to remember and hope,

Because things get better only after they get worse,

Losing your way will lead to new enchanting roads,

Things going wrong will cause you to find new solutions,

And the sun will shine brightly after the eclipse.

Life is all about good, bad, and everything in between,

It is about the right, the wrong, and so much more,

It can be easy and difficult both at the same time,

All that matters is; we keep moving forward.

Be happy if you lose your way and find your soul,

Be glad if things go wrong and you discover life’s purpose,

Celebrate the solar eclipse, it doesn’t come that often,

More than that, don’t blame yourself for what’s meant to be.
