Caribbean Rescue

About the book: Just in time for the Summer Olympics, bestselling sweet romance author Cami Checketts brings you a new Destination Billionaire Romance.

Zack Tyndale was destined to win gold in the 2012 Olympics, but he tripped and shattered his own dreams. Running from his controlling father and the compassion in everyone’s eyes, he buys an island in the Caribbean where he can live blissfully alone. 

Madeline Panetto’s graduation present is a trip sailing around the Caribbean on her father’s yacht. Unfortunately, her father is a pirate, and when there is an uprising on his ship, she escapes and crash-lands on Zack’s island. 

Can these two find refuge from the pirates and with each other? 

My review: This book starts out with a bang! Maddie is on her father's yacht sailing in the Caribbean. But her father...he's a pirate! A real one. And his ship is full of them as well, with him as the big boss. Those men are about to overcome him and he knows that Maddie is in danger. He sends her into the sea in a boat with a bunch of information about the crimes his men have committed, knowing that he is about to be killed by his men.

Maddie has no idea how she's going to survive in the boat and what if her father's men find her? She ends up crash landing on an amazing island in the middle of the Caribbean. It happens to belong to Zack Tyndale, a true gentleman. He agrees to care for her and help her get back to America, but they don't count on the pirates being able to follow them.

I really liked the characters in this book. I liked Maddie, she turned out amazingly well, even though her father was  a pirate and absent from a good chunk of her life. I liked Zack too, I loved the way he took care of anything Maddie needed and "seeing" him with his niece was so cute!

Zack's friend Brooks was pretty interesting. I liked the way he was so full of himself that he couldn't imagine anyone liking Zack more than him. He really made the parts of the story he was in fun!

This is a cute, clean, quick read that you won't want to put down until you've read every suspenseful word!

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 …
