The Protective Groom

About the book: Noah Baker is about to meet the toughest woman in Texas—right before he marries her. 
Harley Wilson, of the Texas Wilsons, is being stalked by an unscrupulous creeper who is intent on doing her harm. In order to protect herself, Harley asks Pamela Jones to find her a groom. She needs someone who can hold his own in a firefight and happily sign annulment papers when this nightmare is over. 
Noah Baker thinks he’s hit the jackpot as a Billionaire Marriage Brokers’ groom. The position is the perfect opportunity to move forward and put the past behind him once and for all. However, Noah must dig into his training as a police officer and doing so brings up demons he buried two years ago when he left the force. 
Time runs short for Noah as his list of suspects grows to include an almost fiancé, a twisted cousin, and Harley’s step-brother. With Harley’s father breathing down his neck, Noah finds himself falling for Harley in a way that makes this assignment as personal as—well, marriage. 

My review: I loved that we got to see more of Noah, Paige's brother in The Country Bride, in this book! It's so much fun that there is a Billionaire Marriage Brokers groom and that it's Noah. I grew to love his character in Paige's story. And I love his character even more after reading this one.

Harley Wilson has a stalker and her family determines that it's high time for her to have a husband that can protect her at all hours of the day and night. So her mother calls Pamela at Billionaire Marriage Brokers and Noah and Harley are scheduled to get married the next Saturday. 

I loved the wedding scene. It's really the first time Harley and Noah have met and it's hilariously funny when she slaps him after they've kissed for the first time! I love the way that Noah forgives her and moves on as though nothing has happened. I loved that even though he can tell he's developing feelings for Harley, he tries to keep her at arm's length so that he will be able to protect her any time that he needs to.

This is a cute story, it's romantic, clean and suspenseful. I was really surprised with who the stalker turns out to be in the end! I'm hoping for more Billionaire Marriage Brokers books soon!

I was sent an e-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 …
