#FitReaders: Jen’s Comparison of Apple Watch & Fitbit

#FitReaders: Jen’s Comparison of Apple Watch & Fitbit As I wrote in my #FitReaders check-in today, I’ve been increasingly frustrated with my Fitbit and decided to try the Apple Watch. Let me state right up front that the Apple Watch is NOT a fitness tracker… it is a smart watch with fitness tracking capabilities. I will also preface this post by stating Apple’s idea of “fitness” is different than Fitbit’s. Fitbit focuses on goal attainment, with steps being the primary goal; however, goals for exercise and activity can also be set. Apple looks more at whole body fitness, adding in breathing and focusing on active calorie counts. Lastly, I am an Apple junky: I use a MacBook,...

Review: Legacy Lost by Jillian David

Review: Legacy Lost by Jillian David Legacy Lost Author: Jillian David Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: I was excited to find that the second novel in the Hell’s Valley series would be Shelby and Eric’s story.  With Shelby’s potent ability, I wasn’t sure how she would find a happy ending with anyone.  Though there were pitfalls, I did enjoy their story. Both Shelby and Eric are very strong personalities. I wasn’t sure how they were going to make their relationship work in a healthy way. With Shelby’s empathic abilities, I didn’t think she could make it work with Eric. Though I did like how they tried to communicate with each other, they...

Review: Royally Roma by Teri Wilson

Review: Royally Roma by Teri Wilson Royally Roma Author: Teri Wilson Reviewer: Ang Rating: C What I’m Talking About: I was super excited to read Royally Roma. It’s advertised as a retelling of the classic romance Roman Holiday – a movie I ADORE!!!!!  It’s clear the author loves Audrey Hepburn as much as I do and that she has a major crush on Prince William, which I can totally respect—I mean he’s a cutie pie. But I felt like rather than work with the romance & chemistry that Roman Holiday offers, Ms. Wilson relies way too much on sexual references. I understand that Julia and Nico have massive chemistry. That is clear from the open scene...

Review: The Enforcer by Stephanie Julian

Review: The Enforcer by Stephanie Julian The Enforcer Author: Stephanie Julian Reviewer: Jen Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Jess Gardiner has hockey in her blood. With the best scout in the NHL for a father, Jess learned the game inside and out at a young age. The problem is, women aren’t scouts in the NHL. So she works as the promotion manager for the Redtails, honestly loving her job, and feeds her scouting side by making recommendations to the coach on the side. Will is a veteran player without much time left playing the sport he loves. However, after a recommendation to give him a look, the Redtails pick him up to be a...

Review: All You Need by Lorelei James

Review: All You Need by Lorelei James All You Need Author: Lorelei James Reviewer: Jen Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Annika Lund has an Ice Queen reputation because she works hard for her family’s company, always doing what is best for the family, even if her personal life takes a back seat. But until she started spending time with Axl, she hadn’t been with a man who was worth the distraction. Now she’s found a guy who matches her word for word and makes her toes curl in the process. If only she could share it with others. Axl Hammerquist is much more than the handsome, rough, playboy hockey player he portrays, but why let...
