How to Take the Ex Out of Ex-boyfriend

Giovanna has it all, she's got great girlfriends, an amazing twin brother and a great boyfriend, Jesse. Jesse is a popular boy and all of his friends are popular too, which leaves Giovanna feeling a little overlooked. Those types of girls never want to talk to her beyond a few superficial remarks. When her brother, Dante, decides to run for student body president, Giovanna just knows that Jesse will throw his support behind Dante and help out with whatever he needs help with, so she's completely surprised when he does just the opposite and becomes campaign manager for Dante's opponent. This makes her furious and she very publicly dumps Jesse to help her brother by being his campaign manager, thinking she can rub it in Jesse's face later. This plan backfires on her rather quickly, Jesse seems to move on way more quickly than Giovanna would like, and she realizes right away that she still really cares for Jesse and that she's made a huge mistake. Can Jesse forgive her after the very public way she dumped him and all of the mean things she does to him afterward?

I really enjoyed the story of this book. The plot was funny, how many bad things can happen to one person! I laughed really hard after the party scene when Giovanna and her friend, the preacher's daughter take some drunk boys home. They really should have seen that one coming! I thought that the characters were well done, really all of Janette Rallison's YA books are amazing. I love that they are clean, funny and well written.

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 …
