The Avenues

Ty is a player. All he thinks about is girls and how to get more girls to like him. Then one day he's at a class to learn how to train for a marathon, he's there to get the girl who's teaching, Amy, to finally go out with him, but as he's there stretching out he sees the most amazing girl! And he knows that he won't ever look at Amy or any other girl the same way. Ever. Again. The problem is that she wants nothing to do with him, he goes out of his way to make sure that this fabulous girl is his partner for the run that day, she's polite, but she takes off right after they are through running without even so much as a backward glance. He does at least learn her name, Rhea. He spends the next few days thinking of her and wondering just how he could get her to like him, even a little bit, then he realizes that she lives 2 houses down from him on the same street. Which is So. Not. Fair. Ty must go back to his LDS roots and make sure that Rhea knows that he is not a player any more. He only wants her, but how will he ever do that without scaring her off first? 

I am kind of embarrassed as to how long this book sat in my reader on my phone before I was able to get to it. I won it a while ago from the author, Sheralyn Pratt. I love this series and I love how this story is told from Ty's perspective. This book goes between City of Angels and Welcome to Stalk Lake City. I really like the change we see in Ty from the beginning of this book until the end, he turns out to be a really great guy and perfect for our heroine Rhea!

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 …

Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
