Second Chances

Fed up with not only Hollywood's version of The Bachelor, but also the dating scene of the Huntington Beach single's ward, Louisa has decided to make her own Bachelor show, the Mormon Bachelor. It will run on the internet and hopefully make her new advertising business money and also get more business. The only problem is that the bachelor that she handpicked has just gotten himself into a relationship. It's days before filming and Louisa needs to find herself a Mormon man, hopefully handsome, likable and very free for the next few weeks. But where is she going to find him? Luckily her best friend and business partner, Molly has already done what she felt needed to be done. She's e-mailed Louisa's ex-boyfriend Nick, a handsome actor, and asked him to call Louisa. Louisa is furious, but knows she doesn't have any other choice. She must make Nick want to be The Mormon Bachelor and date 21 pretty girls, which she is able to do. But Louisa doesn't count on the jealousy that she starts feeling as she is watching Nick date those beautiful perfect girls. At first she chalks it up to tiredness from having to stay up so late editing the date footage, but soon, Louisa can't deny that she still has pretty strong feelings for Nick. Is there any way he could share those feelings, especially while dating 21 other beautiful girls?

This was such a fun book! The plot was fun, the characters were believable. I love the way that Melanie Jacobson writes a love story! I also love how I felt that I was in California as I was reading this book, something I desperately needed when I was reading it. I also loved seeing what happened to Melanie Jacobson's characters from The List. Melanie Jacobson writes some of my very favorite clean romances, check them out!

I bought this book, because I knew I would love it and I didn't want to wait to get it from the library!

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 …
