Bound Together By Christine Feehan

Blurb
For five years, Viktor Prakenskii has put his life on hold in order to take down the world’s most feared motorcycle club from the inside. But carrying out the insane violence and seeing the club’s exploitation of the innocent has brought his traumatic past roaring back. And there’s only one cure: to see the wife he left behind...

Blythe Daniels thought she’d never see Viktor again after he murdered her stepfather and left without a word. She rebuilt her life without him, becoming a personal trainer and physical therapist...becoming strong enough for others to lean on. But when Viktor comes back to Sea Haven, he’ll make Blythe question everything she thought she knew about good and evil—and the dark desires of the heart

Review
It feels like I've been waiting for this book for forever!!! I have read this whole series and with all the teasers on Blythes story left me restless to know more about her mystery guy. I couldn't even wait to go to the store to pick up the book but instead but it right away on my nook and read it immediately.
I loved every single minute reading the book and even read it 4 times more!! I already know which page to hop to to relive my favorite scenes. I am really glad that she will be making a spin off and already introduced some of the characters since I really love the Sea Haven series. I will say that it has gotten a bit darker in the sense of the situations people come from and how in depth she goes with the details which can be uncomfortable for some people. I wasn't too bothered by it since I'm mostly reading for the love story and already knew that most of her characters come from bad situations. I also really liked how this book tied everything together and even included the Drake sisters which makes sense since Blythe is there cousin. Feehan has definitely outdone herself with this book and it is now my favorite since it includes many fo the characters I have fallen in love with. I would recommend her series to romance fans.

The Power of the Habit by Charles Duhigg Review

Blurb
In The Power of Habit, award-winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.


Review 5/5
I first heard about this book on a Disney recommendations site when I worked for them. I of course jumped on it and I was not disappointed. This is the first time that I was able to read a self help book quickly. Clearly, I tend to stick to Young Adult fantasy books so this was out of my zone. I really enjoyed how this book slowly introduces you to methods and gives stories to better understand how the mind works. I am going into marketing so when they gave some market research studies and how habits affect sales I felt like I hit a gold mine. This book isn't just specifically for business students though but rather to anybody who wants to understand more about habits. After reading this I was able to pinpoint why I do the things I do and also how to change some bad habits.
