51tg2btn5wsl-_sx311_bo1204203200_I have a deliciously sweet story to tell you about today. This one gives me warm fuzzies to review because I read it in the beta-phase and then again once it was published. I loved it both times, but the final version really nailed my devotion to the board. Jennifer Peel is a master at writing books just for me. I swear…she has this ultra-sensitive radar that signals in and finds my most favorite books button to push…and then she doesn’t just push that button once…but about eight times. Yeah. She’s that good.

All her books have hit that button in me, so she ranks in my favorite author category. Her stories have delightful characters that are fun, good-crazy, sweet and sassy. Her plots always make me smile because they snag my attention and then hang onto it tight…and I always am sad to see “The End” because I want to keep reading. Her writing style is crisp and clear, fun and witty. Seriously, I can’t think of anything I don’t like.

His Personal Relationship Manager is no different. It has all the above elements and really rocked the romance. Here’s the blurb:

Kenadie Marshall suffered the most public of humiliations, being left at the altar. Instead of wallowing in her misery, she makes it her mission to help others find true and lasting love, all while swearing off relationships for good. Between the software application she developed and a team of relationship managers, her brainchild, Binary Search, has an uncanny knack for choosing the perfect match almost every time.

Attractive and loveable Jason Hadley is taken with Kenadie Marshall from their first meeting. Determined to win her over, he does anything and everything he can think of, even if it means using her firm’s service and dating other women to stay close to her.

Will Kenadie realize she’s met her match before it’s too late? Or will Jason’s ploy go too far? Find out in His Personal Relationship Manager, a romantic comedy with an epic battle of wills.

My Sweet Review – 5

Kenedie is a successful businesswoman who owns her own dating service—Binary Search. Yet, despite her professional success in helping others find love, she is vulnerable when it comes to affairs of her own heart and has built towering walls around it to protect herself.

5 DecadentPeel did an excellent job of making me connect with the characters. Kenedie is a cute heroine. Her thought processes made me smile, and sometimes outright laugh. Her best friend, Zander, is a hoot. That man is crazy, and I’m super excited that a future book will cast him as the main character. Jason is the perfect hero. I loved him…he’s so dang patient. Swoon!

I can’t praise this enough. Great characters…romantic plot that was like cheesecake to my heart. The story made me smile while I read it and grin like a fool after I finished. I highly recommend this one if you love to read great, clean, swoonworthy romance.

Where did January go?

Wuz up wit (1)Can you believe February is already here? I guess you can…but I’m still reeling from January flying by so fast. I spent a couple weeks last month revising my Bending Willow Trilogy to fit a more general audience. I like how the books turned out, and I put all of them on KDP Select so I’ll be able to discount them every quarter. Stay tuned for Eyes of Light being discounted to FREE (probably around Valentines weekend). Continue reading

Hiking Zion

Picture 036It’s time to explore. I’ve posted about Zion before (because it’s one of my favorite places on earth), and thought I’d explore this place some more with you (since it’s cold outside and I’d like to dream of warmer places).

I’ve hiked Zion before in the winter, but it can get a little bit of snow and always ice. That, combined with the slick red rock, can make hiking treacherous. It’s still doable…but I usually do the flatter trails (like the Temple of Sinawava trail) because it’s hard to climb upward when your feet can’t gain any traction.

These pictures are from early summer a few years ago. Aren’t they beautiful? Have I mentioned I LOVE Zion?

I’m not going to go into a travelogue of my hike to Observation Point. You can read about it by clicking the link if you’re interested and want to make plans to hike it someday. I’m just going to meander Continue reading

2015 Reading Summary

DSC07240-BReading is a huge part of my life. That, along with writing, is where a good portion of my time goes. As I looked over my Goodreads stats for 2015, I smiled as book images and memories came to mind. There are so many good books to read. I wish I had time to read even more than I did. There’s just a smorgasbord for my senses.

Year in Review

I read 117 books last year. That wasn’t as high as 2014, but I didn’t think it was half bad. Now before you feel bad about your reading compared to mine, I will admit that I’m a skimmer. That’s how I get Continue reading

Return and Succeed

Return and Succeed Banner.jpg

I’m reviewing a motivational book for returned missionaries today over at my other blog (since that caters more to the audience I see reading this book). It’s called Return and Succeed by Robert R. Shallenberger.

I absolutely loved this book (even though I’ve never gone on a mission). The author is the CEO of Becoming Your Best Global Leadership, a worldwide leader in corporate training and development, and Mr. Shallenberger’s tips for success were very motivating and inspiring. I took notes like crazy.
