The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of tea.

I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 – 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)

Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t change the fact that he’s arrogant, cocky, and rude.

Not that I care, but he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.

Turns out no isn’t an option.

I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn’t have a choice. He looks at our situation like he’s stuck with me, but in reality I’m stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)

When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I’m in trouble.

He isn’t supposed to make my heart pound.

I’m not supposed to make him look twice.

And we aren’t supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)

Falling for him is definitely a mistake.

Here’s the thing…

Jake is unavailable, and I know it.
Just not in the way you might think.

I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

Review:

Jules needs her newest client.  After taking over her uncle’s wedding planning business she has been struggling.  When she first meets Jake she can feel it to her bones.  Unfortunately, a misunderstanding risks her getting this client.  Jake wants nothing to do with Jules or her wedding planning skills.  What neither of them count on is the bride needing them both to work together.  As they work together, they realize there is much more than wedding planning going on.  Can these two lost souls find their way to love or will it be lost to them forever?

This is my first Kim Karr book.  I loved it.  I can’t wait for her next book.  This was a truly engaging and entertaining read.  There are laugh out loud parts and parts that will have you grabbing a tissue.  Jules and Jake’s attraction was quick but as the story builds you feel as if this is right.  Jake’s family and Jules wedding planning friends really made for a great well rounded and hilarious read.  If you are a fan of Emma Hart, you will like this book.  Kim Karr’s writing is fantastic.  She is truly gifted and she has found a new fan in me.

About the Author:

Kim Karr is a New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author.

She grew up in Rochester, NY and now lives in Florida with her husband and four kids. She’s always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, she wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. She went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise her family. Kim currently works part-time with her husband and recently decided to embrace one of her biggest passions–writing.

Kim wears a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of her family. However, she always finds time to read. One of her favorite family outings was taking her kids when they were little to the bookstore or the library. Today, Kim’s oldest child is seventeen and no longer goes with her on these, now rare and infrequent, outings. She finds that she doesn’t need to go on them anymore because she has the greatest device ever invented–a Kindle.

Kim likes to believe in soul mates, kindred spirits, true friends, and Happily-Ever-Afters. She loves to drink champagne, listen to music, and hopes to always stay young at heart.

Review: Miss Fix-It by Emma Hart

Happy Tuesday!  Happy Halloween!  Today I get to bring to you the newest great novel by Emma Hart.  I guarantee if you’ve never read her books you will become an instant fan.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have a great trick or treat.  Hope you have more treats than tricks!

36157849Book Blurb:

One handywoman.
One single dad.
One set of twins.
And the wall isn’t the only thing being drilled…
I learned the hard way that being a handywoman isn’t easy. The questions, the stares—the assumption I’m the proud owner of a cock and balls. Not that it matters. I’ve proven over and over that I’m ready for anything the judgmental asses throw at me.
Except the hot, single dad of twins who just moved to town.
Brantley Cooper gets the shock of his life when I show up on his doorstep to fix up his kids’ new rooms. His son is confused why ‘the pretty lady has a drill,’ and his daughter has a new obsession—me.
On paper, my job is easy. Go in, do their bedrooms, and leave.
In theory, I’m spending eight hours a day with a guarded, sexy as hell guy, and I’m staying for dinner more often than I’m eating it alone, on my couch, with Friends re-runs.
I shouldn’t be staying for dinner. I shouldn’t be helping him out with the twins. I shouldn’t be falling in love with tiny toes and dimpled cheeks.
And I most definitely should not be kissing my client.
Oops…
MISS FIX-IT is a brand-new, standalone romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, who brought you BEING BROOKE and CATCHING CARLY.

Review:

Kali is used to surprising people.  She gets a lot of joy out of it seeing their faces when they open the door expecting a man and seeing their handy-man is actually a handy-woman.  What she doesn’t expect is when the most recent door opens to find the new sexy single dad.  Taking on the job of fixing up his twins rooms seems like it will be like every other job.  As time goes on Kali starts to question her feelings of her future and what it would like to have a family.  Can she over come her fears or will possibly the best things happening to her float away?

I adored this book.  Kali and Brant are off the wall sexy and funny together.  They are probably two of the most real characters I’ve read in a long time.  I think one of the greatest people in this book are Brant’s twins, Eli and Elle.  They are the epitome of four year olds.  They have all the hallmarks with the ability to say anything and ask anything.  This love story with the wonderfully strong heroine.  A great example of being anything you want to be.  The back and forth between Kali and Brant is so fun.  It truly felt like a natural couple.  Their characters are definitely memorable even if its for the way they bluntly say things to each other.  If you are looking for a fun romance with memorable twins (not like the shining), you want to pick this up immediately.  After this book, I can’t wait for the next novel by extremely talented Emma Hart.

Review: Crazy Over You by Daisy Prescott

COY_Banner_LIVE

Happy Thursday!  Today I get to bring to you the newest book by the very awesome Daisy Prescott.  This is her second novel in her A Love with Altitude series.  I adored this book.  It has Daisy Prescott’s wonderful humor and romance blended with the back drop of the mountains.  for my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have a great pre-friday!

businessman working on laptop  in black suitBook Blurb:

My savior isn’t prince charming.

I’m not that lucky.

He’s my worst nightmare.

He’s my one night stand from two years ago.

And he doesn’t remember me.

What happens on vacation doesn’t always stay on vacation. Especially in a place like Aspen. I moved to the mountains for my dream vet job. I never expected to run into the man of my dreams. Again.

I never thought I’d see her again.

My Cinderella didn’t leave me a shoe to find her.

Not that I’d need random footwear to recognize her.

Her kiss is something I’ll never forget.

Work hard. Play hard. I’m paid to be a nice guy on the slopes, but what I do in my off time isn’t always about making good choices. That’s the fun of living in a ski town. I stay while the women come and go.

Crazy Over You is a standalone romantic comedy and the second book in the Love with Altitude series. 

Review:

Mara finds herself having mad a bad choice.  She is on a double black diamond slope when she is just above a bunny slope level.  On top of everything she is having a panic attack.  When her savior arrives in the form of a very sexy ski patroller she can’t help but feel like she’s seen those dimples before.  When recognition hits her she realizes he doesn’t remember her.  Jesse loves his job.  Especially when he comes to the rescue of a beautiful woman on the ski slope.  She seems to know her but knows he definitely didn’t have sex with her.  As the two dance around their remembrance of that one nigh long ago, they must decide if the feelings they have now are left over lust or the start of something new.  Can a real love develop in a town where vacation romances are the only thing that happens?

I loved this book.  Mara’s drunken memories of her and Jesse’s “one night stand”, their banter and their growing love really made for a page turner. Mara and Jesse aren’t the only great things about this book.  The quirky town folk who live their year round make for a well rounded cast of characters.  Not to mention the non-human ones.  Fred and George, Mara’s diabolical cats, make for some very entertaining scenes.  Each page turn will have you panting for more.  Not just the sexier than hell sex scenes but also the wonderful romance that develops from a drunken night years ago.   I am not a skier in any sense of the word but I would totally go to aspen just to find these hot ski patrol guys.  If you are looking for a phenomenally funny love story with crazy animals and people you will want to pick this book up.
