Chasing June

June Laurie has been on the hit show Forensic Faculty and is comfortable in front of the camera, but now she's off for a new adventure, June is heading to BYU. It's not as though she's going on her own, her boyfriend and best friend, Joseph Cleveland, is going with her. But things get confusing for June really fast. Joseph is going to be going on a mission really soon and lets June know that he doesn't want to be her boyfriend any more so that he can prepare for his mission, but he doesn't appear to have a problem dating another girl. June feels so alone, and ends up relying on one of her good friends from her acting days, Ryan. She's not sure what her feelings are for Joseph, but her feelings for Ryan are heating up and fast. Will June be able to determine just what it is she wants, both from life and from love?

I really enjoyed this book. June is an amazing character. She's so well written that it feels as though she could be someone you know. I love how conflicted she is, that's exactly how you feel during those crazy dating days. Sometimes you know just what you want, only to have it be not what you need, or just plain not work out for some reason or another. I like that June is not afraid to be who she is, she's turning down acting jobs because they are out of line with her LDS religion, and she's not willing to let any of her boyfriends go any further than just a kiss. I can't wait to find out just what the end of June's story will be!

I was sent an e-copy of this book by the Whitney Academy for voting purposes.

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 …
