The Scale (Martha's Way 1) by Mika Jolie

This is one of the of the best romances I've read in a LONG TIME. I loved it! It's brilliant and even writing a review will not give it justice, but I'll try. Just get it because it's that good, positive and uplifting with a good ending. It’s also funny at times.

About the story

Most women (or me) can all relate to Minka, the main female character, who like most of us, defines herself by her flaws/issues - a few pounds overweight, insecurity about her body, confidence issues (which thanks goodness doesn't stop her from jumping into bed with Jason) and loves her glass of wine with a nice dessert, and likes to feel sorry for herself at times. And she is supposedly in love with an old college crush - the one she thinks that got away (you’ll need to read the book for more details). So we can all relate to her in one way or another, including her stubbornness in clinging to those issues and using them as an excuse not to get on with her life or even make the way for true love.

The story starts when she goes for her 'perfect twin' sister's wedding where she meets the best man - the awesome Jason -, who can't get enough of her (I can't get enough of him either, the dude is so yummy!). Geez, this book is so hot that at times I had to fan myself to cool down. It's also very hard to put down! The writing is so seductive!

Alpha male Jason is hotness defined and he's really into Minka. He's ticked all the right boxes - handsome, great body, sexy, hardworking both physically and mentally. He's also respectful to women in a bad boy way. He has plenty of brains with brawn/muscles. He is the perfect – in that yummy hot bad boy way.

They do get it together, which is pretty explosive, but the road to true love is never easy. Minka like the rest of us likes to have her cake and eat.

Without giving much away, the question is will Minka cling on to her issues and flaws and  let them continue to define her or will she will give Jason a chance? It sounds simple, but Minka is a stubborn and strong willed woman and so may need to learn some life lessons before that happens.

Overall Mika Jolie does a great job is telling this story and it’s well worth reading.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
