How I Met Your Brother

About this book: Back in college, Marco Winslow never thought of Belle as anything more than a friend. If she crossed his mind on his wedding day, it was probably only to wonder why she hadn’t shown up to be a bridesmaid. After all, his new wife had been her roommate.

Six years have passed since then, and Belle just found out that Marco is divorced and vacationing with his parents in a Cancun resort. She’s not about to let the right man get away twice. She heads to the resort where she plans to casually bump into Marco and ignite some flames.

But Belle hadn’t planned on one thing: Flynn Winslow, Marco’s handsome, charming, and determined older brother. Flynn thinks Marco and his ex-wife can make amends and he’s not about to let Belle stand in the way.

Part Sabrina, part While You Were Sleeping, romantic comedy readers will eat this book up!

My Review: I loved the way this one sucked me in from the very beginning! I loved the plot, the romance, the deception, Belle's conniving, and really everything about it! 

I loved Belle, especially when things don't go her way in the beginning of the book and she ends up having to walk the carpet at fashion week wearing a dress she normally wouldn't be caught dead in. I loved the pluck she shows in this scene and really the whole book as she goes about her daily life. She's such a great character! I love how when she realizes that Marco - the man who got away - is free of her ex-roommate, she knows she has to go after him and make something happen. 

And then there's Flynn. Flynn is watching out for Marco and for his ex-wife Daisy. He's kind of helping Daisy to hopefully get back together with Marco...but to do that, he's got to keep Belle away. And that's where he gets himself into trouble. You see, Flynn and Marco are twins and he lets her believe for a bit that he is Marco. And then...his mom (she's got cancer) and the rest of his family believe that Belle is Flynn's girlfriend and you've got the whole While You Were Sleeping thing going on (one of my all time favorite movies by the way!) And that leads to some really hilarious situations. 

I loved this whole book. And did I mention that it's written by one of my very favorite authors??? This book is cute, clean and fun, you won't regret reading it! 

I bought a copy of this book at Amazon.

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 …
