The Devil Wears Scrubs by Freida McFadden (43)

Kindle: 955 KBPrint: 283 pagesPublisher: Hollywood Upstairs Publishing (December 15, 2013)ASIN: B00EL2NH12
AMAZON
Newly minted doctor Jane McGill is in hell.

Not literally, of course. But between her drug addict patients, sleepless nights on call, and battling wits with the sadistic yet charming Sexy Surgeon, Jane can’t imagine an afterlife much worse than her first month of medical internship at County Hospital.

And then there’s the devil herself: Jane’s senior resident Dr. Alyssa Morgan. When Alyssa becomes absolutely hell-bent on making her new interns pay tenfold for the deadly sin of incompetence, Jane starts to worry that she may not make it through the year with her soul or her sanity still intact.

Dark Ambition by Ann Brocklehurst (42)

Hardcover: 400 pagesPublisher: Viking (November 8, 2016)ISBN: 9780670070145
AMAZON
Tim Bosma was a happy young father with a promising future when he listed his pickup truck for sale online, went for a test drive with two strangers, and never returned. The story of the Hamilton man’s strange disappearance in May 2013 captured headlines across the country and took over social media, resonating with everyone who had ever taken a test drive or bought and sold goods online. 
When Dellen Millard and Mark Smich were eventually arrested and charged with Bosma’s murder, the mystery only deepened. Millard was the wealthy heir to an aviation business. Smich was his ne’er-do-well best friend from a middle-class family. There was no obvious reason why the pair had made it their deadly mission to steal a truck, murder its owner, and incinerate the body. Tim Bosma was their randomly chosen “thrill kill” target.
Veteran journalist and private investigator Ann Brocklehurst had a front-row seat at Millard…

Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham return to their unforgettable roles as Hobbs and Shaw in this action-packed feature from the blockbuster Fast & Furious franchise!

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.

#Win Good Boys (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE November 12!
RATED R
90 minutes
AMAZON
Invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max asks his best friends Lucas and Thor for some much-needed help on how to pucker up. When they hit a dead end, Max decides to use his father's drone to spy on the teenage girls next door. When the boys lose the drone, they skip school and hatch a plan to retrieve it before Max's dad can figure out what happened. Starring Will Forte.

REVIEW: Cute, but definitely raunchy. This is definitely not a movie that you will watch with your children. It had a load of swearing, graphic sexual talk and some drug use. For adults, it was hilarious though! Some people might be put off by the way these tweens carry on, but it really is just in fun and you have to remember that when listening to them talk in the movie. The hubby watched with me and felt it was a fun and nostalgic poke at childhood and growing up through puberty. It's not a very long movie either, so probably a perfect fit for date night.…
