Love In Tune by Caitie Quinn


Synopsis:

Melissa Foehner is a rock star babysitter—er, Tour Logistics Manager—with the patience of a saint. That is until her star and his slacker buddy go missing. Now nothing will stop her from getting the show back on the road…Not even a broad set of shoulders and a smart mouth.

Kyle MacLean has known Melissa was the woman for him for months. Now he has one night to win her over.

My Review: 4 Stars

First things first... *note to self* Do NOT eat or drink anything while reading this book!! You never know when you're going to find something hilarious and you don't want Pepsi flying out of your nose or take a chance of choking on your food!! And before you ask... yes... that happened to me!! Lol.

Now... on to my review. I just have to say that I don't normally give more than 3 stars for short stories but I loved this one so it got an extra star. BUT I WANT MORE DANG IT!! I would LOVE to see this as a full length novel!!

Melissa sees herself as a rock star babysitter instead of a tour logistics manager. And let me just tell you if I had been in her shoes I seriously would have either quit or killed His Majesty. I get that he's a rock star and has a tough job but seriously he treated her like she was a little peon! And he was seriously in need of a Gibbs Slap!!

Kyle pretty much rocked! Yes he could be a pain but I could see where he was coming from. And let me tell you... he knows how to put His Majesty in his place!! I would have LOVED to hear the other side of the conversation when he put him in his place!! ;) I loved how he went to bat for Melissa and helped others see how much she really did and how much she was really worth.

Again... I want MORE!! I really... really... really would love to have the full story of Melissa and Kyle!! If I was this entertained by a short story just imagine how much more entertained I would be with a full length novel!! Guess I'll just have to check out her other books... ;) Hehe.

The Last Single Girl by Caitie Quinn


Synopsis:

One month.

That's all Sarah has to find a date for the Big Night or earn the honor of being the last single girl in her inner circle. Actually, in all her circles. So with four weeks to find Mr. Right and a frienemy already counting her out, Sarah joins eLove.com hoping that - just like the perfect purse - the internet and online dating can help her find the perfect man.

The problem is, love isn't always where you think you'll find it and Mr. Right may not be the one with the shiniest profile.

My Review: 4 Stars

Sarah finds herself in a bit of a pickle when the girl's night out on New Years Eve turns into a couple's night out. She does not want to be known as the loser of the group so she tells everyone that she's got a mystery man of her own and to still count her in!

The next month is filled with random dates in hopes of finding that special someone to take with her on New Years Eve. And let me tell you... she has some pretty hilarious dates! She decided to have all her dates at a little coffee shop called The Brew Ha Ha. While waiting on the different dates she's able to get to know the owner, John. She sees him as her sober bartender and discusses various things about her dates. They are able to get to know each other as friends and they have a really good relationship.

When all Sarah's dates fall threw she decides that she is going to just go as the last single girl for New Years Eve and pretty much put her frenemy, Claire, in her place. Little does she know that John was not going to let that happen and surprises her at the event. Of course they had a blast and she realizes that she is falling in love with him but doesn't know how to move forward from here. But don't worry... John knows exactly what he's doing! ;)

So while I REALLY enjoyed this book and I was able to laugh and escape this crazy thing called life I could only give it 4 stars. Why?! Because it just ENDED!! I HATE that!! If only there was just a little bit more I would have been a even happier camper but alas... I got nothing! :( But don't let that stop you from reading this book! It really is a cute book! I promise!

Valentine's Day Book Blitz Day 9: My One and Only by Shannon Guymon


Day 9
My One and Only
by Shannon Guymon

Book Blurb:


Meredith Jensen has seen her share of ups and downs. She’s found love twice already and lost it in spectacularly traumatic ways. Now? She just wants a peaceful life, free from love and drama. Meredith’s plans for the future center around planning other people’s weddings and her new online dating website. Just because she works to help other people find love doesn’t mean she wants any part of it though. Unfortunately for Meredith’s plans, Asher Murphy is determined to get her to give love another chance. But then again, so is Pule Matafeo. Meredith has never denied that she’s stubborn and feisty so it might take the combined forces of all their friends in Fircrest to get her heart back on track in time for Valentine’s Day.



Author Bio:

I live in Utah with my six children and I’m the author of thirty-three books so far. I write YA Paranormal Romance under my pen name, Katie Lee O’Guinn.

As you’ve probably already guessed, I’m a huge believer in happy endings.

Here's one of my favorite snippets from My One and Only: 

“You’re all being judgmental jerks. Meredith is a sweetheart. I was there when she fought for Kam. I saw her eyes. When she loves, she loves with everything she has. No wonder she’s scared to love Asher. Give her another try, Ash. Not only does she deserve it, but you do too. You two would be great together if you can just get past all of these walls,” Taryn said, her voice dripping with ice as she glared at the women in the room.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
