For the Love of the Game: "Lions vs. All Blacks - 2017 Series - Third Game"

 

Series tied 1-1 (third's test score: 15-15).

 

What a game, the Lions put on a defensive effort. I don't think any other country or countries could have withstood the All Black onslaughts, so good and heavy was the defense that I have never seen the All Blacks drop so much ball. At one stage the All Blacks had 78% possession and whilst the Lions never looked like scoring a try they continually repelled the All Blacks.

 

I don't think the All Blacks tight 5 have received enough praise, they virtually dominated the scrum and negated the Lions platform over the advantage line, something they could do in the 2nd test although with a man advantage. I was slightly perplexed with some of the penalties given in the latter stages of the game by Poite to the Lions that evened up the possession somewhat. Warburton was fantastic at breakdown and stole or slowed down so much ball, with Johnathon Davis a colossus in the mid field.

 

The question asked earlier in the tour who of the Lions players would make the All Blacks team, currently I would say Davis and Warburton, whilst Itoje is the flavour of the month in the press, I still don't believe he could oust Retallic and Whitlock. I was skeptical with Hansen calling in Laumape and Barrett for their first run on debuts however they were both fantastic, I am not saying Smith and Crotty could have done better however we will never know. It was also good to see the fridge running over people as is his want, with himself and B Barrett making incredible running metres along with the Lions Williams.

 

If you're into Rugby, read on.

She’s a free spirit; he’s a no nonsense kind of guy. When these opposites attract ... oh baby! It's game on!

I’ve called Aoife O’Shaughnessy a number of things, but dumb was never one of them. Through all the insane things she’s done—all the trouble she’s gotten into—I never once thought she was actually stupid. Until now. Because I just heard her plan to lose her virginity to the vilest human being I’ve ever met.

My first thought? How the f*ck is Aoife still a virgin? The second? Over my dead body.

So I volunteered for the job instead.

It might be the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, but once the words were out of my mouth, I couldn’t take them back. Now, I can’t stop wondering what it will be like to kiss the pink-haired sprite I’ve known my whole life, to hear her moan my name when she comes.

And I know she’s wondering about me too.

What started off as a bit of fun has spiraled out of control and now I’m in deep. I never meant to fall in love with Aoife … it was never supposed to go this far. 
And what happens next, just might break both of us.

Read Like A Vacation
In Too Deep - Tracey Alvarez

I loved this New Zealand Island romance. What a wonderful experience. The writing was so vivid I could see the images and walk along side these fabulous characters. This was like taking a vacation without the cost and long flight. The characters, there is no way you can't help but admire, like and wish the best for them. They have realistic problems, and deal with them is easy to believe ways, and even have believable sex. Yes you heard that right, there were no extreme unrealistic descriptions or actions- thank the gods ! I'm off to read another from this author.

Playing It Cool (Sydney Smoke Rugby, #2) by Amy Andrews Review
Playing It Cool - Amy Andrews

Harper Nugent might have a little extra junk in her trunk, but herstepbrother calling her out on it is the last straw... When rugby hottie,Dexter Blake, witnesses the insult, he surprises Harper by asking her out. Infront of her dumbass brother. Score! Of course, she knows it's not for reals,but Dex won't take no for an answer.

Dexter Blake's life revolves around rugby with one hard and fast rule:no women. Sure, his left hand is getting a workout, but he's focused on hiscareer for now. Then he overhears an asshat reporter belittle the curvy chickhe'd been secretly ogling. What's a guy to do but ask her out? It's just alittle revenge against a poser, and then he'll get his head back in thegame.

But the date is better than either expected. So is the next one. Andthe next. And the heat between them...sizzles their clothes rightoff.

Suddenly, this fake relationship is feeling all too real...

 

 

Review

 

I love Amy Andrews and I love rugby sports romances. What could go wrong?

 

There were many good moments in this book and a basically liked the characters but I think this being a brazen book pushed the sexy times to take up space needs for relationship development and character development.

 

Sexy times can do that but mainly these love scenes didn't work that way for me.

Sigh.
