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 fiancĂ© 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…

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 …
