My Persuasion

About the book: When Caroline Bingley broke off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth seven years ago, she realized she’d made the biggest mistake of her life. When he shows up again, she knows she doesn’t deserve him, but it doesn’t stop her from wishing things were different. 

The last thing Rick wants is to get caught up in Caroline drama again—one broken heart was enough. To prove he’s over her, he starts to date her sister, Louisa. Unfortunately, the plan backfires as he finds himself closer to Caroline than ever before, and he has to admit, he’s never really gotten over her. 

This modern, tangled retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion is a fun, clean romance with witty dialogue and forgiving hearts.

My review: You really can't go wrong with a Jenni James romance. I love the way that she writes these. The characters are always great and the plots are always compelling. This one was no different.

I really liked Caroline. I was really amazed at her strength of character. She was always working herself to death for her super ungrateful family, including paying all of the bills for everything with her very own money. I was amazed by not only how ungrateful her family was, but how rude, inconsiderate and selfish to Caroline and really everyone around them.

I loved Caroline's reaction, when instead of the employee she was expecting to come help in the clothing shop she runs, in walks her ex-fiance. The one her family made her dump even though she was completely in love with him. Worst. Day. Ever. She is amazing though, she does her best to keep doing her work. And deal with him at the same time. And to top things off, Frederick - that's the ex-fiance - decides to date her terrible, selfish sister Louisa. Right in front of Caroline.

I loved the way that even though Rick was dating Louisa, he is really always watching out for Caroline. Little things like getting her medicine and soup at the store when she's sick, making her lunch and dinners, and making sure she gets a much needed vacation. 

This is a cute, fun, quick read that I enjoyed reading. I'm always looking for another book/novella by this author!

I was sent an e-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 …

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&…
