Currently Listening: Game On by Tracy Solheim

Game On by Tracy Solheim
Obtained From: Tantor Audio for review at Ramblings from that Chick

Why I chose this one: I'm a sucker for sports romances right now and this one intrigued me.  I also have the second in the series and I can already tell I'm going to enjoy these books.

About Game On:
With a reputation for fast moves on the gridiron and even faster moves off the field, Shane Devlin was a player in every sense of the word. Unfortunately, his bad-boy persona has made him a risky prospect as a quarterback, and only the Baltimore Blaze are willing to give him a chance. And he’s about to take a hit he never expected.

Working for the Blaze, Carly March knows too well how jocks think—and what they think with—so she’s always made a point of keeping them at arm’s length. But when she shares a kiss with the devilishly handsome Shane, she finds it hard to play by her own rules—and even harder to resist him.

Can a football hero and a business-minded beauty take it all the way? Or will their mutual attraction cost them the big game?

Why I chose this one: I read and enjoyed the first in this series and with the catch-up I seem to be doing lately with James Patterson books, it seemed like a good one to read.

About Confessions: The Private School Murders:
In the sequel to the #1 New York Times bestseller Confessions of a Murder Suspect, James Patterson keeps the confessions coming breathlessly as Tandy Angel delves deeper into her own tumultuous history-and proves that she can rise above the sordid Angel legacy.

Wealthy young women are being murdered on Manhattan's exclusive Upper West Side, and the police aren't looking for answers in the right places. Enter Tandy Angel. The first case she cracked was the mystery of her parents' deaths. Now, while she's working to exonerate her brother of his glamorous girlfriend's homicide, she's driven to get involved in the West Side murder spree.

One of the recent victims was a student at Tandy's own elite school. She has a hunch it may be the work of a serial killer, but the NYPD isn't listening to her...and Tandy can't ignore the disturbing fact that she perfectly fits the profile of the killer's targets. Can she untangle the mysteries in time? Or will she be the next victim?

Summary -
Busy weekend out of town to attend a park opening in my great-uncle's name.  That was special and a wonderful dedication to a man who gave his life for his country in WWII.  I also got to spend quality time with my kids, watching a favorite stupid movie (Talledega Nights), watching a football game on tv (Clemson/Florida State, boo on the loss), going to favorite places to eat and even having pizza delivered (we live out in the country and always have to pick it up).  It was also wonderful to spend time with family.  The 6 hour drive allowed me to finish one of my audiobooks and start another using the one-headphone in method.  The audiobooks I had for review were not kid appropriate, but it was great because both kids needed to do their own reading for school (oldest just read Divergent and loved it) and I got to do my required reading :)  Oh and it appears I'm on a bit of a James Patterson kick.  I realized how behind I was and I am just enjoying.  I know a lot of people aren't crazy about him anymore, but I still love his books.  They entertain me and don't require much concentration which with trips, football, more football and general life is perfect right now.
