Once Enchanted

Alexis O'Brien is trying to make it in the dog eat dog world of LA as a lawyer. She thought that her life would all be easy and happy, what she didn't realize is that sometimes lawyers are scum and she's working for one of those. He is always coming on to her, and making her work way more than her fair share. The final straw for Alexis is when he asks her to go to Wyoming to find the elusive owner of a business and take her suit with the lowest top and the shortest skirt to make him see her bosses way. Alexis is mad when she leaves town, she's uncertain whether or not she even wants to return. But she heads to Wyoming with the requested clothes to find the man. What she doesn't plan on finding is Sean Rockland. Sean helps her out by towing her car to town after she hits a huge moose. He even offers to let her stay with his family, because there isn't a motel anywhere close to the small town. Alexis is uncertain what to think of Sean, he doesn't seem like a tow truck driver, he's kind and considerate of her. His family is amazing, and they belong to a Church that makes everyone of Alexis' questions make sense. But Sean has a secret, and Alexis is going to be furious when she finds out, will she be able to forgive him so their fledgling relationship can move on?

I really enjoyed this story. I like all of the Rockland Ranch stories, they are filled with great characters, fun plots and always just a bit of danger. I liked Alexis, here she is, a feminist used to being dumped on with more and more work and then she meets Sean Rockland, and all of his family really. They believe in having the wife in the home, but that doesn't mean they demean the wife's value at all. They believe in treating their wives right and as total equals. This comes as quite a shock to Alexis, and she spends a good chunk of the book trying to understand. There is also such a sweet love story in this book! I love all the Rockland men, I've really enjoyed each of these stories that I've read and I can't wait to read more of them!

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 …
