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…

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 …
