Rules of Engagement

Samantha Skyler is a BYU coed. She's just like any other BYU coed, she goes to all the singles events, dates the boys that ask her out, hangs out quite a bit with the boys that live in her ward. She has some amazing roommates, but she's ready to move on with her life. Things don't seem to be working out that way though. The boy that she's been dating just told her that it's a better idea to be "friends" than to date. Unfortunately he's the dad of her family home evening group and that means that she'll see him at least once a week for a while longer and she'll have to see him flirt with all of her FHE sisters. FHE is just ending when Harrison Bean shows up at their apartment. He tells the roommates that he will be able to get them all engaged by the end of the semester, only a month away if they will all agree to follow his plan. It takes some convincing, but soon the roommates, Stephanie, Ashley, Emma and Brooke agree to follow his advice. What happens next is just a comedy of errors with roommate pitted against roommate. But will any of the girls really find her Prince Charming among the guys from their singles ward?

I think I actually read this book when it came out a few years ago, but I really didn't remember anything about it. It's a pretty zany story with all kinds of crazy college stunts in it, prank pulling, kicking a hook hanging from a ceiling, and boyfriend stealing are all a part of the plot. This is a cute story, a quick read with nothing overly heavy in it.

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&…
