Vocal Crush

About the book: Can you ever out run a broken heart?

Lexi Court spent seven years traveling the world, living the nomadic Broadway life, in an attempt to outrun the broken heart Nick Rivers gave her. Now, there’s nowhere left to go.

When she accepted a position as a high school drama teacher in Las Vegas, Lexi hoped to get over Nick, find a nice guy, and settle down. But what should be a quiet summer gets turned upside down when Lexi's best friend, Taffy, drafts her to be an emergency replacement coach on a televised vocal competition.

Feeling out of her league among the other three celebrity coaches, Lexi fights for the most promising contestants to be on her team. One note from a single voice shatters her summer. Nick unexpectedly auditions and joins Lexi's team. With her vocal crush on him raging as strong as ever, she has nowhere to run from Nick’s dreamy looks or siren voice.

Lexi has no doubt that Nick can win the competition. The question is does he want to win her heart as well or will he damage it beyond repair? 


My review: I got quickly engrossed in this book for several reasons. The author did a great job with characters, the plot was fun and fast paced, and I wanted to know what happened to Lexi as she was helping with the competition.

Lexi is a great character. I loved that she seemed real and she was not a perfect person by any means. Lexi has run from her old life because of Nick, a man she once loved. She's trying to do everything a normal high school teacher would do and also hide from her past. Which becomes really hard to do when she helps her best friend with the competition and her ex-boyfriend Nick ends up being on her team. I loved the way that she tries so hard to hide from Nick, but he keeps getting shoved into her space, at home, at work, everywhere.

I liked Nick too, I thought he was a gentleman, and a true romantic. It would have been fun to have seen some of the story through his eyes as well.

I liked the plot of this one too. It was fast paced and fun. I loved that there were several places where Nick and Lexi had misunderstandings about who loved who, like when Lexi was helping a friend pick out an engagement ring for his girlfriend and Nick was stalking her, not knowing what she was doing. It made the book that much more fun.

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

I purchased this e-book for free from Amazon.

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 …

Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
