For Joey

About the book: He didn’t mean to mislead her. 
She didn’t mean to fall in love with him. 
Joey Rockland is the only sister among 6 brothers on the sprawling Rockland Ranch. Leggy, beautiful, and the best darn exotic sports car mechanic in the whole valley, Joey has lots of male admirers, but no one who actually makes her feel emotional fireworks—until an intriguing and hunky Easterner shows up. 
Burnt out with high society, lonely, and mourning his father’s recent death, when New York banking tycoon Michael Morgan accepts a friend’s offer to use his remote ranch house in Wyoming, he has no idea what he’s getting himself into. 
Thinking he will lick his wounds alone and unknown out west, Michael is surprised when even though he doesn’t tell anyone who or what he is, he’s cheerfully swallowed up into the huge Rockland family. Their world of brown eggs, homemade bread, anonymous acts of service, and unlocked doors is like a foreign country to him sometimes. Still, their slightly boisterous, yet always entertaining welcome is exactly what his thrashed spirit needs. 
Now if he can just make Joey realize that he’s exactly what she needs as well. 

My Review: Joey Rockland is ready to move on and be married. Unfortunately she hasn't met the man that makes her heart beat faster just yet. There are no shortage of men in her life, but there are just no sparks. Then Michael moves into the empty ranch house on the Rockland Ranch. He touches Joey's heart because he's obviously hurting and needing a friend. But as Joey's feelings for Michael grow, so do her doubts. Michael is not a member of the LDS Church, requirement number one for Joey. He also has not been completely up front about who he is with her. Can Joey see past all of that and just go for the love of her life?

This is a cute book, I've really loved reading about the Rockland's. This wasn't my favorite of this series, but it's still really good. I liked Joey, she is well-written and quirky. What other girl loves cars and is a certified mechanic as well as knowing how to work her family's ranch. I liked Michael. It did seem like the romance wasn't going anywhere for a really long time, but the ending made up for that! If you like to read clean romance that are fun, quick reads, make sure to read all of the Rockland ranch series!

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…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
