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!

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…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
