Love Under Construction

About the book: Charlee was angry . . . 

What do you do when your boss makes someone else the lead on a big renovation project that should rightfully be yours? You quit. On second thought, that might not be the best idea, but Charlee Jackson has never been one for second thoughts. Instead, she lands a big contract of her own. She’s jumping into her new life—work boots, tool belt and all. Now she just needs to form a company and hire contractors and buy supplies and get an office . . . and not fall in love with her former boss's son. Yeah. Definitely not that last one.

Peter was torn . . . 

You can’t date someone who works for you, but now that his dad let Charlee walk out the door, Peter Elliot is considering his options. Charlee was their top renovation expert, his best friend’s sister, and the only thing that made the drudgery of running a large construction business bearable. But how do you date a competitor, especially one your father is trying to drive out of business? It would be stupid to make your dad angry right before he retires and hands the company over to you. Right?


When Charlee and Peter are scheduled to work on the same Indulgence Row house, their feelings and priorities are put to the test. They need to make a choice, and they better be quick about it, because the whole mixture is curing fast and threatening to crumble to pieces.

My review: This is a cute romance book! I loved all of it and I can't wait for more of the Indulgence Row series!

This one features Charlee. I love her character, she's a strong young woman who only wants to renovate homes. At the beginning she works for Elliot Homes, but her boss won't allow her to take the lead on any of her projects and he crosses the line when he denies her the lead on one that she finds herself and brings to him. So what does she do? She takes things into her own hands and creates her own company to renovate homes. It's a win win for her, lose the tense office environment, and do what she loves.

Another win turns out to be that the boss' son Peter has had a crush on her for ages and now feels he can actually act on it because they no longer work together. I like Peter too. He's a great guy, always looking out for Charlee. The one thing I didn't really love about this book also has to do with Peter. He and all of his friends are constantly at the bar drinking and their language isn't the best. It isn't horrible, but the language in this one is one reason I won't be passing this one on to my daughter any time soon.

I really liked Charlee's brother Tyler too! I love the way he was constantly watching out for her, protecting her from everyone he could. Peter, their mom (I really loved this part and I'd love to know what happened between them) and anyone else.

And her best friend, Mari, she's awesome! I can't wait to read her story!

This is a cute book that I really enjoyed reading. The plot is clean, except for the language issue. I recommend reading this cute book and really the whole series!

I won an e-copy of this book in New LDS Fiction's Summer Book Trek contest.

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&…
