To trike, or not to trike? That is the question— Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous benumbment, Or to take arms against a sea of stinging wind, And, by opposing, triumph? To trike, to ride— Once more—and by cycling to say we end The flab and the thousand fatty pounds That flesh is heir to—’tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished! Apologies to Hammy Baby. When I leave for work later this morning the temp’s gonna be a balmy 28º. The question is, will I trike or drive? Dunno but I’m betting on the trike. After all, I’ve a track record, a rep for riding in wintry weather. While I’m psyching myself up, laying out my frozen season outdoor spinning gear, let’s have a few words. K? acyrology noun Incorrect use of language (at which I'm a pro) Related: cacology (sounds like something poop related, does it not?) noun 1. bad choice of words or poor pronunciation. 2. defectively produced speech; socially unacceptable diction. fremd (Isn't this a Facebookism? You know, should I unfremd this asshole or not?) Wikitionary has the most to say about this adjective: 1. (rare or chiefly dialectal) Strange; foreign; alien; outlandish; far off or away; distant. 2. (rare or chiefly dialectal) Not akin; unrelated. 3. (rare or chiefly dialectal) Out of the ordinary; unusual; unwonted. a fremd day 4. (rare or chiefly dialectal) Strange; weird; outlandish; singular; odd; queer. A fremd man this. — Hodgson MS. 5. (archaic or obsolete) Wild; untamed. It can also be a noun: fremd (plural fremds) (rare or chiefly dialectal) stranger; guest (archaic or obsolete) an enmity So then, I can say “I may be a fremd but I ain’t no fremd” and that’d be all kosher and shit? And, because my mind is a jumble of songs, of lyrics that I'm continually bolloxing up, this is now in my head. jeon (plural jeon) (Damned convenient that the plural is the same as the singular, eh?) From Korean 전 (jeon). Noun A fried, filled pancake-like food eaten in Korea These would truly hit the spot for brekkie right now, lemme just tell you. It’s fucking cold out — I need pancakes before I brave that frosty ride to work! spiv Noun From World Wide Words: A spiv was typically a flashily dressed man (velvet collars and lurid kipper ties) who made a living by various disreputable dealings, existing by his wits rather than holding down any job, and who often supported himself by petty black-market dealings. (Another name was wide boy, with wide having the old slang sense of sharp-witted, or skilled in sharp practice.) He was small-time, living on the fringes of real criminality. He is most closely associated with the Second World War and after in Britain; he always seemed able to get those coveted luxury items that were unobtainable during that period of austerity except on the black market, such as nylons. Love this word. It’s just so evocative of film noir-ish scenes — of brilliantly beautiful, fiercely smart, devious babes, ready to use their angry survival skills to get what they need. Hit the linky for more spiv related awesomeness. winze (plural winzes) noun A steep shaft in a mine which joins two levels. NOT what I was expecting. It looks like a verb. “I just had to winze when he made that awful pun.” Nope. silva noun 1. the forest trees of a particular area. 2. a descriptive flora of forest trees. Looks more like how we pronounce the word “silver” here in these New England parts. As in “Do you prefer silva jewelry or gold?” Ah...no. This is related to sylvan as in a sylvan glade. sylvan [sil-vuh n] adjective 1. of, pertaining to, or inhabiting the woods. 2. consisting of or abounding in woods or trees; wooded; woody: a shady, sylvan glade. 3. made of trees, branches, boughs, etc. noun 4. a person dwelling in a woodland region. 5. a mythical deity or spirit of the woods. “Our woods are sylvan, and their inhabitants woodmen and rustics...” from Thoreau's The Maine Woods. Well shit, I can't procrastinate any longer. It's time to find my fleece lined leggings, triking socks, forehead scarf and maybe see if I can tuck cat or two down my vest.

You completely redefine my idea of what love is and should be. That it needn't be possessive, volatile, or detrimental to your well-being, but can be selfless, honest, and consistent. That it should balance and enrich your life, not tear it to pieces.
One Month Only Tuscany Nights Book 1 by Kate J. Blake I’m a billionaire, I’m a chaser, I’m a wolf. I worked too hard to get where I am now, so I don’t need any distractions, especially the one called LOVE. Don't get me wrong, I love and enjoy sex, but all I need to do to have a fuck is to show a woman my Amex Black Card and let her hear my Italian accent and here we go: a one-night stand guaranteed. Everything worked just fine for me until a chance meeting with her—Angelica Sorreno—when she came back into my life. She is like a strong, terrifying tsunami that blows everything in its way. She asked me for help and I agreed, but only because we were friends, and not because I used to have feelings for her. It’s just that... I’ve made a mistake, a huge one: I’ve tasted her and she happened to have the most delicious pussy I've ever tried. Now I don’t think I can let her go that easily. https://www.amazon.com/Month-Only-Tuscany-Nights-Book-ebook/dp/B084ZQJNPS Momma Says: 3 stars One Month Only is kind of a second chance romance, but not. I suppose it's more that it's a second chance in Ricardo's mind. Either way, the story is pretty lighthearted overall. There is some angst, but it's not over the top even as we get to that cliffy - a cliffy that comes out of nowhere! It is a quick read, and I suppose I'd say this first Tuscany Nights book is sort of an introduction to the characters and the beginning of their relationship. That said, I struggled a bit with these two. Both feel a little immature? innocent? Naive, I guess that one says it best. I just don't get the vibe of adult business people from these two, especially Ricardo. I had a hard time finding a connection with Ricardo, and maybe that naivety is the reason? Maybe it's that I didn't see the chaser or the wolf described in the blurb. I'm really not sure, to be honest, but something about this character just didn't work for me, and while I started warming a little toward the end, I didn't quite get there. And that pretty much sums up this relationship for me. I will say that as a debut, Kate Blake certainly shows talent, and even though this one wasn't the book for me, I'll be interested to see this author's growth with future books. I also have to add that her timing on that cliffy was terrific. It was just right for leaving the reader dying for whatever's next. Facebook Twitter Instagram Goodreads Tumblr

Academy Of Beasts VI: Shifter Romance by Becca Fanning "Fiona, it's time you know the truth." This coming from the man stalking me from behind a mask. I don't care what the Council has to say: they are just taking orders from The Officials, whoever they are. It's just another group of people who insist they know what's best for me, and I'm getting sick of it! So when I see an opportunity to put one of these Shifter men to the test, you bet damn well I took it. USA Today Bestselling Author Becca Fanning is proud to bring you this Reverse Harem Academy Romance serial, packed with all the action, intrigue and great chemistry you can handle! Amazon Barnes & Noble Apple Google Kobo Momma Says: 5 stars Things are heating up at the Academy in more ways than one. Fiona learned an answer or two in that jaw-dropping conclusion of the fifth installment, and this sixth part of the serial gives her a few more, but with those answers come more questions. As Fiona struggles to come to grips with her roots - roots she didn't even know about - the tension rises and the stress takes its toll. It's where that stress leads her that is really intriguing, and of course, Becca Fanning has another big wow moment at the conclusion. This is part of a continuing story, so I would recommend starting at the beginning to get the full story of these terrific characters and the world this author has built. I was sucked in from the beginning and I can't get enough of this series. Facebook Twitter Instagram Goodreads Tumblr

You do the same, therefore you could not be an object.
Title: Burn Zone Author: Annabeth Albert Series: Hotshots, #1 Length: approx. 90,000 words Genre: Contemporary Romance Imprint: Carina Press eBook On-Sale: April 27, 2020 eBook ISBN & Price: 9781488057045, $4.99 USD Introducing Annabeth Albert’s Hotshots series—the emotions and intensity of Chicago Fire with the raw, natural elements of Man vs. Wild. Danger lurks everywhere for Central Oregon’s fire crews, but the biggest risk of all might be losing their hearts… Smoke jumper Lincoln Reid is speechless to see Jacob Hartman among his squad’s new recruits. Linc had promised his late best friend he’d stay away from his little brother. And yet here Jacob is…and almost instantly, the same temptation Linc has always felt around him is causing way too many problems. Jacob gets everyone’s concerns, but he’s waited years for his shot at joining the elite smoke jumping team, hoping to honor his brother’s memory. He’s ready to tackle any challenge Linc throws his way, and senses the chemistry between them—chemistry Linc insists on ignoring—is still alive and kicking. This time, Jacob’s determined to get what he wants. Close quarters and high stakes make it difficult for Linc to keep his resolve, never mind do so while also making sure the rookie’s safe. But the closer they get, the more Linc’s plan to leave at the end of the season risks him breaking another promise: the one his heart wants to make to Jacob.

As the start of a series, it gives us the ins and outs of training and the lives these guys live, but primarily the book is about Linc and Jacob and their romance. I'm a sucker for an age gap romance anyway, so that combined with a touch of the forbidden and two sexy smokejumpers, and there was no way I was gonna miss this one. Linc was a hard nut to crack, and I struggled with him in the beginning while Jacob had me from the word go. Linc's problems with the relationship are understandable, and these guys do have great chemistry, so I ended up liking them together and rooting for their happy ever after. The story is maybe a little more angsty and drawn out than I cared for, but it still kept my attention, and there are certainly some exciting and danger-filled moments along with some steamy goodness along the way. All in all, this one's a good start to a promising series, and I'll be interested to see what's next. From Annabeth I’m so thrilled to be here today celebrating my latest release, BURN ZONE, which is also my 15th release from Carina Press and is available at all your favorite retailers! This is an older brother’s best friend forbidden romance between two smoke jumpers on the same team. For today’s excerpt, I wanted to share one of the turning points early in the story, when things start to shift towards the growing sensual tension between the heroes. I also loved this scene because we’re in Linc’s head, and we get to see all the ways in which Jacob throws him for a loop. Linc’s battle between what his heart wants and what he believes to be the right thing was so gratifying to write—this is a hero who is loyal to his very core and who feels deeply. I hope you enjoy him as much as I do! Excerpt […] Linc ended up heading outside to the firepit like he hadn’t known all along where he was headed. Jacob was just working on lighting the thing as the evening temperatures dropped. “Need a hand?” he asked, squatting down next to him. “Yours? Always.” Jacob was far too flirty for his family being close by, but Linc liked the warmth in his tone too much to call him on it. “Here.” Linc handed him some kindling. Same as with the baby, they worked together silently, doing this task like they’d done it a thousand times before, when the reality was that the firepit had always been Wyatt’s domain, not Jacob’s. He liked working alongside Jacob, something that had both annoyed and buoyed him the last week, the way Jacob could often read his mind, anticipate what he was about to ask. And somehow once the fire was going, they ended up the only two out there in the big wooden chairs, alone but not really. They sat in a companionable silence for a while before Jacob shifted, leaning forward, voice a bare whisper. “You know, I’ve been thinking—” “Please don’t.” Linc wasn’t trying to be funny. The look on Jacob’s face, at once mischievous and earnest, so damn appealing, both turned him on and put him immediately on edge. “We need to get this—” Jacob gestured between them “—out of our systems. Once and for all.” “No.” It didn’t work like that, and it spoke to how damn young Jacob still was that he thought it did. “Hear me out. One night. Then we can concentrate on work after. Put it behind us. Take away the mystery maybe.” Linc snorted. It might be simply curiosity for Jacob, but it sure wasn’t for him. “It wouldn’t work.” “Maybe not, but I at least want to try. You don’t?” “I’m not an itch you scratch once.” “That sure of yourself, huh?” More like he was that sure of Jacob, but he said nothing, just stood. His no might be firm now, but he wasn’t made of iron either. Enough wheedling from Jacob and he might get twisted up enough to agree to that ridiculous plan. “Night. You have a nice time now with your family. And see you tomorrow. At work.” He chose his words carefully, reminding them both about the two big reasons they couldn’t do anything foolish. “Just think about it,” Jacob urged. “It’s cake time!” someone called from the house, saving Linc from answering. But he would. He’d think about it all right. He’d think about it tonight, alone in his bed. And probably tomorrow, in the shower. And he’d want it, just like he had for years now, every cell in his body aware of what he could have but wouldn’t allow himself. Lord, how he’d want it, especially now that Jacob had made this diabolical little offer. One night. And it didn’t help that a small piece of himself kept whispering, It might work. Never know. It could work. That part was wrong, of course, but it spoke to his want, wormed its way into his thoughts until he wasn’t sure how long his willpower could hold out.

Enchanted The Accidental Billionaires Book 4 by J. S. Scott Opposites resist—and attract—under the Cancún sun in this emotional Accidental Billionaires novel by New York Times bestselling author J.S. Scott. Years ago, Noah Sinclair promised his dying mother that he’d stay strong and work hard for his younger brothers and sisters. Even with the Sinclairs’ newfound wealth, Noah has never steered from that blue-collar drive. His siblings think it’s time—with the gift of a Cancún vacation. To Noah, being forced to relax isn’t bliss. It’s a chore. Especially under the watch of a beautiful family friend enlisted to make sure every laptop under the sun stays closed. All Andie has to do is convince a handsome billionaire to take a deep breath? It should be a dream for the bohemian travel writer. If Noah—a workhorse so resistant to change—weren’t spoiling for a fight. But no matter how hard Noah pushes her away, Andie is pushing back. She promised she’d teach Noah to embrace every pleasure in life. It’s a promise she made to herself once, too. What begins as a battle of wills becomes a chance for Noah and Andie to open their hearts and share their fears. Night after intimate night. It’s the last thing they expected from Cancún, and it’s what they need the most. Even if it isn’t supposed to be forever. Goodreads BookBub Momma Says: 5 stars Ah, Noah and Andie. It was so easy to get lost in Noah and Andie's love story. And make no mistake, this one is very much a love story. No matter their differences, these two just fit. The story is full of all the things we expect from JS Scott - the wit, the chemistry, the steamy goodness - but this one hit me on a personal level with the emotion. I won't go into details so I don't spoil anything, but Andie's secret really hit home for me, which made me root even harder for this pair who had already won me over. This whole series of Accidental Billionaires has been full of terrific characters and wonderful couples, but I have to say that Noah and Andie have moved into the top slot for me. The series only has one more Sinclair to go, and I'll be interested to see where things go for that one. And yes, it is a connected series, but each book focuses on a new couple, so they do stand alone, although once you've met this clan in any of the books, you'll want more of them. ❃❃ARC provided by NetGalley and Montlake Romance Facebook Twitter Instagram Goodreads Tumblr
