Wrong Bed, Right Roommate Wrong Bed, Right Roommate by Rebecca Brooks is 99c! Elyse mentioned this one in January 2019’s Hide Your Wallet, and I appreciate the hero cover model’s chest hair. Readers found this to be a cute, sexy romance, but there were some reviews that mention being divided on the hero. It’s not every day you wake up to a stranger getting into your bed. Only, he isn’t a stranger at all, he’s my best friend’s hot older brother…and apparently my new roommate. Having him in my space, driving me crazy, isn’t a problem at all. Nope. All I need to do is keep control of the situation… But that’s easier said than done. Shawn Lassiter is the kind of distraction I don’t need. First he accidentally gets into my bed, half-naked, the night before my first day at my new job. Hello, muscles and tattoos! Then he’s there, in nothing but a towel, making me coffee in the morning. It’s more than any girl can resist. Right? But Shawn is off-limits, even if his eyes are saying differently. Years ago, back when I still had my crush, he destroyed friendships with his reckless playboy antics. There’s no way I’m touching those…

Hide your wallet, crafty friends, because this post is gonna get spendy. I’m here to tell you about the wonder that is yarn clubs–a way to be surprised by exclusive colors in your favorite yarn brands through the mail. It’s pretty much my new favorite thing. First of all, I will confess to having achieved SABLE (Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy). If I stopped buying yarn today, and lived to be one hundred, I’d probably still die with yarn on my hands. I definitely do not need more yarn. Also, I am unreasonably addicted to sock yarn in particular. Why? It’s super pretty, it comes in fun colors, and one skein can make a pair of socks or be part of a shawl. Basically I’m always knitting socks and shawls, and if I’m being honest, I never wear the shawls. At the moment I belong to three yarn clubs: Primrose Yarn Co, Hedgehog Fibers, and Round Mountain Fibers. Yarn clubs work like this: you pay up front and sign up for a three month commitment. Every month (or every other month depending on the retailer) you get a package in the mail that contains surprise yarn, usually two skeins. I…

This is such a random question, but I’m feeling heckin’ nebby: what is your favorite game on your phone or tablet? What game do you turn to when you’re waiting in line, or looking to relax a bit? Amanda: I have a few that I play regularly: Gardenscapes (G:Play | iOS), a match 3 game where you earn stars to renovate a garden, and Fairway Solitaire (G:Play | iOS), which is an addicting card game that has daily challenges. From time to time, I’ll grab a romance phone game like The Arcana (G:Play | iOS) or Mystic Messenger (G:Play | iOS) , but I go through pockets with those. I usually play in bed at night. Sarah: What do you like about Gardenscapes or Fairway? Amanda: The first I’ve been playing for years now and the “customizable” options on how you want to decorate your garden is really what keeps me playing. I like having choices! Fountains galore! Says Amanda, You can tell how much I play by the fact that I’m over level 3000. Fairway is a bit more mindless but because I’m a perfectionist, I insist on getting 3 stars on every level and that’s a nice challenge. Sarah: So it’s like…
