Blog Tour - Double Play


About the book: Sophie Pope is devastated when she hears the news: her former boyfriend, college football star Anthony “Rocket” Rogers, is engaged to be married. Determined to win him back before he says “I do,” Sophie hatches a foolproof plan to stop the wedding. But when Rocket’s best man, aspiring baseball player David Savage, thwarts her plot, she realizes the game is up. For David, though, it’s just beginning . . . David knows that Sophie is just another pretty face, and he’s more than happy to save his best friend from her shallow advances. She’s not his type at all, so he’s baffled by his response to an awkward encounter with Donovan, another of Sophie’s former flames. Despite himself, David feels driven by an inexplicable need to protect her. Pretending to be Sophie’s new fiancé leads to unexpected sparks between the pair, and soon they’re searching for excuses to spend time together. But when a curveball threatens to send them in opposite directions, will Sophie and David step up to the plate for the possibility of true love?

My review: My first thought when I saw this book is how much I LOVE the cover. My favorite color is red, so this book is great that way. But I love all the little details, the shoes shopping bags, couch and I love it even more after reading this great book. The cover really fits Sophie to a tee.

Sophie is a strong willed young woman who is determined that she won't lose Anthony Rogers to a girl like Ty who knows really nothing about shopping, fashion or how to be a wife to a famous NFL player. She hatches a plan to get Ty and Anthony to break up and it all starts with a gift to Ty of a wedding from her mother's wedding planning company for very little money. Of course, Ty takes the bait and Sophie's plan is up and running. There's one thing Sophie didn't plan on though, David.

David and Anthony are on to what Ty's up to and David soon realizes that he doesn't just not want Sophie to break Anthony and Ty for obvious reasons, he's hoping that there's a way that Sophie could look at him as a man that she could one day want to marry.

I loved the plot of this one. There were times that I really loved Sophie, and there were times that I thought that she was about the most selfish human being on the face of the planet. I really loved the scene where she is sick and vulnerable and you see that she really is a good person. I liked David, I liked the way that he was willing to keep trying even when it didn't seem as though there were any way he was going to come out the victor. I loved the ending too.

This is a cute, clean romance that you won't want to put down!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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 …
