Blog Tour - An Inconvenient Romance Review and Giveaway


About the book: The countryside of England provided an idyllic backdrop for Charles Brumley's and Leah Hasting's childhood. Neighbors and best friends, the pair passed many happy days racing through the rolling hills of Derbyshire. Everything was perfect—until Charles ruined it all and abandoned Leah for university. 

Six years later, the former friends are thrust into each other's paths once more. Leah had been looking forward to the ball, an opportunity to further her acquaintance with the handsome Mr. Wilkins—but when she sees Charles's familiar face through the crowd, her traitorous heart leaps. 

Charles faces his own struggle: he has loved Leah since he was fifteen years old, yet it seems he is too late—it appears that her affections are otherwise engaged. As the pair tentatively renews their friendship, the spark between them in undeniable. 

After so many years apart, Leah endeavors to reconcile her feelings toward her once cherished companion. But when a conniving revival for Charles's attention approaches Leah, the threat is clear: give up her association with Charles or a devastating secret about her family will be revealed. Faced with an impossible decision, Leah must make a choice—the ruin of her family or the ruin of her heart?

My review: I really enjoyed this one! I liked the way it started out with Leah and Charles as teens and friends before it really got into the romance part of the book. I loved how comfortable they were with each other, one of my very favorite parts of the whole book.

I liked the plot of this one. It had surprises for the characters around every corner, from a beast mother of another young lady, to a tragic accident, things never quite settle down for these two, making their romance a tenuous one at best. 

I liked the way the book bounced back and forth between Leah's and Charles' perspectives. I liked the way that you kind of got to know what each of them were thinking during each of the key events in the book. And it was fun to see each of their personalities come out during these parts where you knew their thoughts.

I liked Leah, she is a loyal young woman, fiercely protective of her family. That actually causes part of the problem for these two in the book. I enjoyed seeing things through her eyes. 

Charles was great too. I loved the way he cared so much for Leah that he was willing to go out of his way to get the person he thought she loved most when Leah needed him most. 

I liked that this book was written differently than most Regency Romances are, some of them can be a bit tedious to get through and this book was not like that at all. I loved it!

I was sent a 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 …

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&…
