Review: How To Score by Robin Wells

Ugh, computers annoy me so much lately!! So last Friday evening, I realized I had a problem with my computer - Firefox kept crashing. I tried Google Chrome and while it didn't crash, it kept being interrupted as well... and then, I realized it was probably the new adobe flash player that I installed, because it kept popping up and saying there was a new version. UGH. And my computer in general was crashing as well... so I restored the computer to a restore point and that screw up MacAffey. Hours later, I finally restored to another restore point and it seems to do the work... but it's soooo annoying... and Firefox has already crashed twice this morning. Sigh.

Then, yesterday, woke up and there was no internet connection. Hmmm. Usually, I wouldn't bother much, because it'll probably come back sometime during the day... but little problem now... my parents switch for the phone provider, so now, no internet no phone - and that's a big no no for my mom. In the end, they called the provider... and turns out both the modem and the router were kaput. Seriously?!? The stupid thing is that we just got a new cable box and modem from the provider when we switch plans - the cable box had to be replaced about 3 weeks ago. Now the modem too?!? Then, after work, I had to go buy a router... Guess what? Of course, I had to pick a lemon. I connected everything right and it wouldn't find the internet connection... but I knew we had signal. Then, of course, my dad had to doubt me and check all over again. Had to rush to another FutureShop to buy another router - ended up with the same one Kristie bought... Alleluia, it worked!! and that one is fairly easy to install. Now though, I'm wondering if I need to do something to the configuration... Because I used the setup wizard... Ugh.

Technology is cool, but sometimes, it can be such a PITA.

Okay, my rant is over ^_^; This post is to announce that I have a buddy review with Ames up at Breezing Through. Yay!! It's been weeks ^_^; The review is How To Score by Robin Wells which I enjoyed a lot :) Click here for the review.

Her life coach...

Museum curator Sammi Matthews isn't just in a dating slump, she's putting men on the injured list. After giving one date a black eye and cracking another's rib, Sammi decides she needs professional help. Enter life coach Luke Jones, who advises Sammi on how to overcome her klutziness. And their phone sessions work! Sammi soon meets a sexy FBI agent who seems to know just what she needs.

...is changing her life

When his brother Luke goes into federal protection, FBI Special Agent Chase Jones agrees to cover for him. Then Sammi's hot voice sizzles down the line, and the usual "phone only" rule is out. With "Luke" coaching her by day, and Chase dating her by night, Sammi's confidence soars, along with her appeal. Chase falls hard, but how will Sammi feel if and when he comes clean? Chase would rather she break all his bones than risk breaking her heart.


  1. Congrats on getting the buddy review up! *g*

    I really hope your connection problems are over now. I know how frustrating these problems can be. We lost our internet connection on our second PC for no apparent reason. I was so proud when I got it to work a few months back and now... *grrr* I'm totally out of ideas what could be wrong except hoping that the adapter is kaput. Must really go and bother the manufacturer about it this weekend. Joy! ;)

  2. Taja - Hey Taja!! Sorry for the late reply!!

    The firewalls work, my computer still crashes from time to time, but I think it's better. Now, what I don't understand is that the wireless connection doesn't work, sigh... and I wonder if I broke something on my sister's laptop... Ugh!! So many things to worry about!! T_T

    Internet is great, but connecting it is a pain!!

  3. Nath, no worries. Plus: I know you've been away for a few days. :)

    "Internet is great, but connecting it is a pain!!" - love that sentence! So right. :D

    Have a great week.

  4. Taja - but it's soooo true!!
