Sun I spent 2 hours at the garden/food/book fair. Let's count that as a 30 min walk. Since yeah I mostly walked.
Mon 4 km bike. 30 min walk
Tue 8 km bike. 1 h workout class
Wed 4 km bike, 1 h walk
Thu 4 km bike. 30 min walk
Fri 1.20 h walk, 4 km bike
Sat 1 h walk

It snowed again. Then it melted away. The days are getting longer :D


Who do you turn to when things go wrong?
Your best friend. Obviously.

Sephy King’s worked flat-out to make her new lingerie business a success, only there’s a tiny snag – the marketing photos for the launch party are a disaster.

Luke Jackson will help her, won’t he? They just need to strip off, model gorgeous, sexy underwear together and take more photos! So what if the stunning body he’s been hiding makes Sephy’s eyes pop out? And when he holds her, she suddenly wishes they were in her bedroom…alone? He’s her best friend.

Then Luke asks Sephy for a return favour: to pose as his fake fiancée to get his parents temporarily off his back. It’s a risky strategy – but she’s sure she can pull it off.

Until he kisses her…

My thoughts:
Luke and Sophy are best friends. Then she asks him to pose with their underwear, and suddenly all they can think of is sex. Yup, that happened fast. All he can think about, all day long, all night long.

I did like their friendship, and how sweet he was with her kid. But I could not really see these two as lovers, they lacked chemistry. It felt a bit forced at times. How they suddenly wanted each other and could not think of anything else.

And Sophy was so, I know I want to hit characters over the head a lot, but Sophy, sheesh woman, take the help they are offering!!! That stupid woman would rather be homeless than ask for help. That is not being brave and doing it on your own. That is being a stupid cow.

So their dance is mostly them being stupid. Well, not Luke, I liked him, I understood his issues, but hers, nah. Not hers.

  1. It's always so pretty in your pictures!

  2. Ha book sounds good. Love the posing in the underwear idea! You always inspire me with your exercise each week.

  3. I can't believe you're still getting snow! We've got our air conditioner on.

    1. Haha, yes nothing strange about that here :) Happens in May too

  4. So you know I follow you on IG. All that nature, that's your "backyard"? Damn, do you live in fucking Narnia?!?!?!

    1. LOL. Hehe, I wish.
      The sad thing is that they want more houses here so they already destroyed one trail

  5. I saw that first photo in instagram - oh my goodness it's so beautiful!

  6. Lovely pictures from your walks!

    Oh my, she does sound like a twit not to take help. Oh well at least it sounds fun in the blurb. ;)

  7. Wow, look at the colors in that sky of yours, Linda! So beautiful it takes your breath away, my friend... I feel that old jealousy coming on again about you living in the prettiest place on Earth (mewants too!!!) :D Well, I see that the newly-fallen snow has not slowed you down in the slightest... I swear you've got the discipline and the stamina of a world champion! :) Keep up the good work! The book sounds interesting, though I can understand your gripe - knowing when to ask for & accept help is just another strength.

    1. And you always write the sweetest comments :D
      Awww now I do feel like I live in a wonderful place...I could take some of that azur blue ocean that some have though ;)

  8. ah difficult when it's like that. It's quite warm here, like 20°C, we're waiting to see when it's possible to go swin in the sea

  9. Hope that's the last of the snow. Yay for the days getting longer!

  10. I like the friends turned lovers theme, but not if it seems forced.
    And such gorgeous photos!

  11. You had gorgeous pics on instagram this week!

  12. oh what pretty pictures you shared!! Great job on all that walking. :)

  13. I always love your pictures and you do so well with your walking. Good for you!

  14. Oh, how disappointing that the book was meh. It sounds so cute! I love friends - to - lovers books.

    Glad you are getting longer days. It snowed here last week too! BOO!!

    1. It's so lovely :D Almost 10.30 and still light, yaaay. So nice after a long dark winter

  15. Looks like you had a good week walking and biking. I love the photos.

    The book doesn't sound like one I'll pick up.

  16. Oh my! You are still getting snow. Wow, I don't think I could take it. lol. I like my warm weather. :)

    1. Now we finally have warm weather, and it is nice
