Blog Tour - Accidentally Me



About the book: WANTED: Pretend stalker. No experience required. Tall, dark, and quirky preferred. Sabrina is desperate to go to her dream college, but her parents want her to stay close to home. If she wants to maintain her perfect child image, Sabrina must break rules that even her rebel sister keeps.

My review: Sabrina...Sabrina...I loved Sabrina in this book. She's just graduated from high school and she's ready to go to college. Only her parents have decided that she needs to go to Boise State because it's close to their home and cheaper. The problem being Sabrina wants to go to Caltech. She knows it's perfect for her intended major. Since she knows there is no way her parents will agree to let her go where she wants, she decides to get a stalker so that they will see she's not safe at home and let her go...I know, flawed thinking!

That's where things get a bit crazy for Sabrina. Because she really doesn't have a stalker and she doesn't really know anyone that could pass for a stalker. So where else do you find a stalker but Facebook. And that's when she remembers Calvin, a guy she knew from high school who would be the perfect stalker, and he agrees to do it for a measly $50. But Sabrina doesn't count on the amount of lies she's going to have to tell about having a stalker. 

It was kind of sad the way Sabrina though of herself as an accident. She thought about it an awful lot because she mentioned being an accident several times. I loved that by the end of the story she saw herself in a bit of a different light, helping her confidence and self worth to grow and feeling that she really does deserve to be happy and live a good life.

This is a cute young adult read that is clean and fun. I loved reading it!

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

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 …

About the book: Fat-free cheese is okay—unless you’ve tasted real cheese. 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&…
