Way Off Plan (Firsts and Forever #1) by Alexa Land Review
Way Off Plan (Firsts and Forever) - Alexa Land

Jamie Nolan is a young cop on his first undercover assignment, sent to investigate Dmitri Teplov, a suspected major player in the Russian mafia. Jamie knows better than to get involved with the gorgeous nightclub owner. But right from the start, the spark of attraction between the two of them is undeniable.

Everything about Dmitri is just so unexpected. He’s sweet and shy, and has a nerdy side that Jamie finds irresistible. Can this man really be a criminal?

No matter if Dmitri is guilty or innocent, Jamie’s big Irish Catholic family of cops and his police captain are never going to accept this relationship. Dmitri’s dangerous and manipulative gangster uncle is also none too thrilled that these two are together, and wants Jamie out of the picture. On top of that, Jamie’s still reeling from a recent breakup, and Dmitri is unavailable anyway. Isn’t he?

No way should this thing between them be happening. Getting involved with Dmitri Teplov was never part of the plan. But sometimes, the best plan is the one you make up as you go along.

 

Review

Relax. Enjoy. I love all of this series but this isn't the best of it but I have a lot of fun. 

This is over the top and sweet and funny. It blurs after reading the rest of the series but it is a must read because Dmitri and Jamie are wonderful cast members in all the other books. 

There is a lovely connection between the heroes--hot too--even if the plot is really really silly.

"A Dubious Plan", by Gerald J. Kubicki
A Dubious Plan - Gerald J. Kubicki

Book #5, in the Colton Banyon Mysteries

If you want an amusing and a fun read you will be well served with this series. No problem to start at any point, each book has a unique drama and just enough background on the characters to situate us so that we can enjoy the moment without being overloaded with pass information.

In, ”A Dubious Plan”, Colton and his sidekick Loni are called to Death Valley to attend a wedding. But when a WW11 German plane is found in the sand dunes things changes….fast.

Don’t take this story seriously it is pure escapism from reality and very entertaining. The tempo is steady and holds its own all through, actually it never let go. The characters are a bit shallow, especially the female roles. I been stating this for a good part of the series, sexuality and the women insecurities and appearances are too often repeated…Naked brainless women catering to sex starved men is rather annoying (no explicit sexual scenes )…... Passing beyond the sexual innuendos and the frivolities the plot is an intriguing adventure. Most of Mr. Kubicki’s stories have a bit of mysticism and cynical humour mixed with a little bit of history…The author’s notes at the end of the book tells us what triggered his inspiration to write this story.

This book may be the latest I have read but actually I have read all of the books written to date by the Kubickis.

Excerpt from THE BACKUP PLAN:

 

The door opened...making me fall backward into Chase’s pitch-black room. When I landed against something hard and naked, arms closed around me without hesitation.

 

A palm brushed my right breast, sending a wave of awareness shooting through me. I tried not to think about that, though.

 

Guys were nothing but trouble.

 

I had bigger plans than falling for a smooth talker with bright eyes and a fake smile who would do nothing but distract me. Once I managed to regain my balance, I spun on my heel and looked at him.

 

The room behind him was dark, but the hallway illuminated his hotness. And once it did? I wished I hadn’t looked at all.

 

He stood in the doorway, looking completely unfazed by the fact that he’d basically just felt me up, and glowered at the guy in the hallway. He was shirtless, and wearing nothing but a pair of black sweats. His chest was hard and chiseled, and his abs...yeah. I wasn’t gonna touch upon those for the sake of my own sanity.


Waxing poetic over his abs wasn’t part of my job description.


“Uh, hey...” the guy in the hallway said, trailing off after a feeble attempt at pretending he hadn’t been talking crap about him moments before.


Chase’s green eyes met mine before focusing on the guy in the hall again. His sharp cheekbones were the same as I remembered, and so was his short brown hair. He used to have dimples in his cheeks when he smiled, which had softened the harsh lines of his face and given him a softer appeal, but I had no idea if they still existed since he hadn’t smiled at me yet. Or...at anyone all day. Had he forgotten how?

 

He said nothing. Just stared the other guy down.

 

Even I had to admit his stony silence was impressive.

 

Of course, he kind of reminded me of his dad right now, something he probably wouldn’t like. Or would he? I had no clue.

 

“I didn’t mean to...” The guy backed up, his face pale, and looked back at me. “She a friend of yours?”

 

Chase didn’t answer him. He just motioned me inside, his jaw ticking ever so slightly.

 

When I didn’t move fast enough, he shot me a look with those gorgeous eyes of his, and I jumped slightly. “Um. Yes, I am.” I swallowed hard and inched past him, making sure I didn’t brush against his bare chest in the process.

 

Chase slammed the door behind me. I blinked across the inky blackness of the room, my heart hammering away in my ears. He’d been sitting here in the dark this early in the night? Had he been napping before hitting the books?

 

I’d learned college kids napped more than one year olds—and much more enthusiastically.


“Do you have something against lights?” I asked, forcing a little laugh at the end.


Dead silence met my joke. In all fairness, it was a pretty lame attempt. For a second I wondered if he was even in the room with me, but I heard him breathe. I turned my head, trying to figure out where he was. To my left, maybe.


“Okay. No lights, then. That’s fine. It’s cool. I’m not scared of the dark.” I paused. “Were you taking a power nap? I could use one. I got an hour of sleep last night.”


Still nothing.


I sensed him there, right next to me. He wasn’t touching me, but I swore he was thinking about it or something.


That makes no sense, Taylor.


I shivered, anxious and excited, all at the same time. “I don’t know if you remember me, but I’m—”


Without warning, Chase moved close enough for me to feel his heat. I backed against the wall until I couldn’t back up anymore. It wasn’t that he scared me. He didn’t. I just...
I just backed up, okay?

 

“You’re Taylor Selmer. Of course, I remember you. Why are you in my room?”

not for me
The Lesson Plan (Extra Credit Book 3) - Charlotte Penn Clark

Noah is a classics student sent to extra credit  for staging a protest sit in. Extra credit is a pilot class that students go to in penance for bad behavior. Noah lives his life like a eighty year old man. References to latin and greek are all he knows. Holly is his complete opposite - a computer science student. She is in Extra Credit for  hacking into the school computer. Noah is tongue tied and quiet around Holly and Holly has no filter and is fiesty. Their solution to their issues is to live a little in each other’s world and live more n the physical world.. Holly has a boyfriend and is in a long distance romance. But she is not sure all is great between her and her boyfriend.  Noah is already half in love with Holly. Noah and holly can talk about anything with each other but their feelings. Rachel and their friends encourage Noah and Holly to go further with their relationship. Holly is totally unaware of the effect she has on Noah. But Noah is good at hiding his feelings especially since he doesn’t want to lose his friendship with Holly.     

I had mixed feelings on this novella. But I did like Holly was the computer nerd and Noah was the quiet shy one. I advise you to read the other books in this series in order so you know the other students involved in this book. I did like how Naiah and Holly interacted with each other.  I did enjoy watching Noah and holly’s relationship grow.I did however feel like this was lacking something. I felt this geared toward the younger teens. I think Noah was just a little too passive for me. This dragged at times for me. As I said I had mixed feelings on this.

How to Get the Protein You Need on a Vegan Diet

When someone decides to go vegan, one of the biggest questions that others will have—indeed, perhaps the biggest question—is how that person will get enough protein in his or her diet. With varying levels of incredulity and condescension, non-vegans will say, “How can you possibly get protein when you do not eat dairy, eggs, chicken or fish?”

 

 

Some people cannot come up with a good reply to this question. As a result, they choose not to go full vegan. But despite the mainstream American diet’s heavy dependence on meat and dairy products, the best vegan protein can fully meet the dietary needs of most people.

 

Proteins are important because of the amino acids that they contain. People need nine amino acids from their food in order to perform critical bodily functions like building and repairing muscles. Appropriately enough, these are call “essential” amino acids. They are:

 

•  Leucine
•  Isoleucine
•  Methionine
•  Histidine
•  Phenylalanine
•  Lysine
•  Threonine
•  Valine
•  Tryptophan

 

Meat contains all nine of these essential amino acids—after all, it is nothing but the muscles of animals—which is why people consider it the best protein source. But think about it for a second—what would most animals eat to get that protein? From plants! If cows and chickens can do it, so can humans.

 

To get the amino acids they need from plants, people simply need to diversify their diet. The protein of plant-based foods like quinoa, buckwheat and hempseed have all nine of the amino acids listed above. Also, people can easily get the protein they need by eating a combination of legumes and grains. In fact, lots of people do this already (beans and rice, anyone?).

 

If a consumer wants to switch to veganism but is not sure how to get enough protein, he or she can take advantage of a vegan food delivery plan. It can be surprisingly easy to find a company that prepares nutritious, great-tasting meals. Some even deliver them right to a customer’s door on a weekly basis. This can be a wonderful option for people with unforgiving schedules.

 

Fitness enthusiasts should also consider switching to the best vegan protein powder instead of consuming whey protein powder. Vegan protein powder can enhance a person’s workout; it can help them become stronger and leaner without the bloat or gassiness caused by whey.

 

22 Days Nutrition is one-stop shop for people who want the best in vegan meals and supplements. Created by exercise physiologist Marco Borges, the company has a first-rate vegan delivery service, some of the best tasting vegan protein powder and more.
