Jessie's a normal young single adult living in Seattle. She's had a bad relationship and a bunch of really bad blind dates, so she's sick of that scene and pretty much has become a work-aholic to compensate. So she's pretty mad when her roommate Sandy signs her up for one of those LDS dating services. Sandy convinces her to at least look at the profiles of the three men who were matched to her by the sight and there's one who looks pretty promising. She sends him a "wave" and soon they're sending e-mail messages back and forth. All too soon they decide that maybe since their messages seem to work for them, they should meet. Enter Ben Bratton, an amazing very attractive person and completely perfect for Jessie. But Jessie is having a contest at work with a man named Craig and she just doesn't feel as though she has a lot of time for a relationship right now. And Ben's been burned before by a previous girlfriend who thought work was far more important than a relationship. Can Jessie figure out what's most important before Ben moves on to someone else? I bought this book a few weeks ago, when I bought it, it had just come out, I hadn't seen any reviews or anything on it. Most of the time I just borrow books from the library, because it gets pretty expensive to buy all the books that I read (not to mention our bookshelves are already running over!), but I loved Melanie's two previous books The List and Not My Type. I just knew this book would be a great, funny, romantic book and I wasn't disappointed. I loved this book! I loved everything about it, the characters, setting, humor, you name it! I hope that there are more books coming from Melanie pretty soon!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
