Wrong For You

Wrongfor You BT bannerI went to a writing conference this past weekend and met a lot of my favorite authors. Jenny Proctor, author of Wrong For You, taught one of the classes. She’s a sweetheart from North Dakota, and I might have grinned all during class because I was so happy to be learning from some pros. Her new book was awesome, so let me tell you about it.

Book Blurb

Lane Bishop is a hardworking, intelligent, beautiful young woman. And with her recent move to Chapel Hill, she is determined to leave behind the drama and effort of keeping up with the dating scene. Even so, Lane somehow manages to get dragged out by a gaggle of girls to watch a bunch of guys play soccer. But just watching is not Lane’s forte, so she joins in the fun and leads her team to victory. Rather than feeling intimidated by the vivacious beauty on the opposing team, Jamie Hamilton is intrigued. Risking his “untouchable” dating status, he decides to pursue Lane—with a little help from his older brother Simon. With Simon’s behind-the-scenes assistance, Jamie proves irresistible, even to a disillusioned dater like Lane. But as she gets to know both brothers, Lane can’t help but wonder—beneath the grand gestures and romantic words, is she falling for the wrong guy?

My Review

This contemporary clean romance has a subtle love triangle that has three amazing characters in it. I loved each of them, which made it hard to know who to cheer for—so I just cheered for all three. Lane Bishop moves to her grandmother’s hometown. When she jumps into a pick-up game of soccer and meets three brothers, she’s attracted to the oldest brother, Simon. But when she learns he’s unavailable because he has a long-distance girlfriend, she goes after his younger brother, Jamie. Jamie is intrigued by the confident soccer playing girl who beats him. Seeking his older brother’s help to figure out what Lane loves, he works his way into her heart. But Lane sometimes wonders if she’s falling in love with the wrong brother.

5 DecadentI really liked this story. It’s right up there with Love at First Note (her other favorite of mine). It’s well written and flows flawlessly. The characters are so cool and diverse. Lane is a half-black/Puerto Rican, vivacious, strong willed college soccer superstar. The Hamilton brothers–labeled the “untouchables”–are so funny as they group text each other through this story. I loved the interaction between them. This love triangle tugged my heart all over the place. It was super well done. I loved the witty dialogue and prose. If you’re looking for a  delicious book to savor, this one will make you smile. I rated it 5 all across the board. You can’t go wrong with this one.

A Fine Gentleman

bookOkay, this title might sound boring, but the book is anything but! And I’m not talking about the type of pork butts that my husband smokes up outside. I’m just saying (in a long round-about way) that this book is incredibly awesome. It’s one that made me smile the whole way through as characters became friends, and their trials and triumphs became mine as well.

Let me first give you the riveting blurb for A Fine Gentleman so you know it’s anything but boring. Continue reading

Kept Secrets

kept-secrets-blog-tour-bannerI’ve had quite a bit of down time due to my hip surgery last week. Four days in the hospital, and I felt I needed every second of that healing time. I don’t think I read once while I was in there, and even in the preceding days at home after, I’ve been too uncomfortable to do anything but feel sorry for myself. My own personal pity party.

But it’s over now–for the most part. Day by day my body is healing and I am beginning to want to read again. This latest book–Kept Secrets–was pretty intense. I couldn’t put it down once I started it. Continue reading

His PRM

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. Continue reading
