Reluctant Rescue

About the book: Caylee Compton has determined she'll never commit to a man, especially a too-handsome, fun-sucker like volunteer firefighter, physician, and ex-military Captain Levi Turner. Levi determines to change her mind. 

In the beautiful and exciting location of Lake Powell, Caylee fights valiantly to stay strong, but Levi's patience, kindness, and kisses might conquer even her commitment phobia.

My review: This was another one of the Park City Firefighter Romances and I LOVED it! I actually read this one first, so it was kind of fun to see the glimpses of Levi and Caylee that you got in Rescued by Love turn into real people in this one. 

I liked Caylee. She is a strong young woman who is not looking for a relationship. She pretty much goes on one date with a guy and then he's gone. She has some serious trust issues from her family situation as a child and that makes it hard for her to commit to anyone. And Caylee knows Levi already because he's the brother of her brother's fiance. She wants nothing to do with him.

Then there's Levi. He's just gotten home from Afghanistan. When he meets Caylee, he's intrigued. But it's pretty obvious that she's not into him. Then they're constantly thrown together on a group trip to Lake Powell and he sees what a risk taker she is and know that he wants to spend the rest of his life protecting her from herself.

This is such a fun novella! I loved the setting, I could almost see the red rocks of Lake Powell and smell the water. I loved the story, and the characters. I really loved the way that Levi was willing to step back and allow Caylee the time to grow into whoever she was going to become.

This is a great novella to spend an afternoon reading! Such a great escape. I need to go read more of this series!

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 …
