Blog Tour: Wooing the Wedding Planner

When I signed up to do the blog tour for Wooing the Wedding Planner by Amber Leigh Williams, there was no plans for the flu, Jury Duty and any other life disturbances but I got them all.  I did find time to read this book during the jury selection process.

I will admit, Wooing the Wedding Planner was a little slow to start.  It took me a few chapters to get into the book, but once I did it was a really good read.

MY REVIEW

When a lack of communication has Roxie agreeing to rent the house that Byron plans to purchase, they are sent on another plan of living together for a year since Bryon already lives in the garage loft.  Putting two people who already are attracted to each other in close proximity will lead to nothing but romance.

Overall I like the characterization of Roxie, she is a girl who has been to the low point in her life.  She may still struggle with the need to be accepted for who she is with the people in her life, but she knows what is really important.  With her romance with Byron she even discovers what she deserves.

The overall plot line is more believable than other romances out there.  Two people who live in the same town, know each other in passing and even find the other attractive being thrown together.  This is a very believable romance (more so than the billionaire stories I love to read).  Yes like all romances it also has a very predictable ending.  Something I have to thank Amber Leigh Williams for, my new dream wedding.

Question for the Readers

What is your favorite Harlequin Serial Read type?  Do you like the Super Romance like Wooing the Wedding Planner? Do you like another type?  My favorite is the Desire Reads, I like that Quick Romance getting swept off your feet.  Or do you not like to read Harlequin at all?  Let me know in the comments down below.

No more wedding marches for her! Wedding planner Roxie Honeycutt can make happy-ever-after come true for anyone except herself. Freshly divorced and done with love, she's okay with watching clients walk down the aisle. What's not okay? Sharing a charming Victorian house with accountant Byron Strong. He's frustratingly sexy and determined to keep her confused. Roxie thought Byron's expertise was numbers, yet somehow he sees her for who she really is. Somehow he understands the hurt she hides behind a trademark smile. Suddenly romance is tempting again, even if it means risking another heartbreak.

Where Have I Been?

Welcome Back!

I would like to say that I am sorry for the unplanned hiatus.  It started with a really bad flu that I could just not get over.

After which I had to get my school stuff under control and finally spring break I went to jury duty.  With school almost out for the semester I am finally able to switch part of my focus back to reading non-textbooks.

I have a few reviews written that just need to be posted so look for those to come out along with ones that are high on my TBR pile right now.  I even have a Book Tour stop (tomorrow) so check back tomorrow morning for that book review.

Get Reminded to Come Back Tomorrow:

Feature and Follow Friday – #2

Feature and Follow Friday – #2

Well this week has not been as hectic as previous weeks but the question sure does apply to me.  At first I was not sure if I was going to even have time to participate in this weeks hop, but for some unknown reason when I opened my e-mail and saw that Alison from Alison Can Read put me as the feature, it reminded me to take a few minutes and answer one question.

What are some Tips that help you with Blogging?

 

Right now my main focus is planning and scheduling.  I work and go to school at the same time as working on this blog.  My planner has everything from school work being due, chapters to read and even the hours that I need to be at work.  Making time to read for fun means that while I am blow drying my hair my Kindle is in front of me so that I can read.  While I am watching the latest NCIS or some other show I have my laptop open to my blog typing away at the latest post (right now I am watching Lucifer from the other night on Hulu).  So my tip, make a little time, books that I read are for me.  It is supposed to be fun and sharing books is fun to me.  Don’t let the blog stress you out.  I took a while off and just came back.

Top Ten Tuesday – Freebie

When I saw we had a Freebie this week for Top Ten Tuesday I had a lot of things go through my mind of what I should make my list of. This Top Ten Tuesday list was not my original plan.  I was thinking of Top Ten books I read in School or Top Ten Novellas.  Yet here we are with the TOP TEN TUESDAY: STRANGEST BOOKS MY MOM HAS RECOMMENDED TO ME.

If you have read my review of The Billionaire’s Christmas you know that my mom has paid for Kindle Unlimited and shares it with everyone.  Since she started paying for this my mom has given me some of the most interesting book suggestions to read.  I say interesting as these titles are coming from a mom to daughter on what I should read next.

Top Ten Tuesday: Strangest Books my Mom has Recommended to Me

Slave (Finding Anna Series) by Sherri Hayes

I am not sure what interested my mom in this book exactly but she ended up buying it and the rest of the series and she keeps asking me to read this book.  While it does sound good sometimes this is not something you want your mom to recommend to you.  Still it has made its way onto my TBR pile when I have time to read the book.

Ruby Falls by Nicole James

My mom loves this one and she has even gotten my sister to actually read it over the Christmas holidays.  Though I did not have as much time to read over the holidays as she did my sister agrees this is a very good book to read.

Panty Dropper by Paige North

With a Title like Panty Dropper I have to wonder what it is that my mom is reading that has gotten her to these recommendations on Amazon and Goodreads.

Charming: A Cinderella Billionaire Story by Sophie Brooks

OK, the whole Cinderella thing comes from my moms love of the hallmark channel movies.  She does keep saying those movies give unrealistic expectations of love and romance during the Christmas season, yet she still watches them all.  So I think here she was just searching Cinderella stories as this is not the only one on the list that has something to do with Cinderella.

Three Under The Mistletoe by Tia Siren

This is one author I have seen my mom read multiple books by, and not all of them are in the same series.  She even subscribed to the Authors mailing list to know when new books come out.  But I also know she read this one just so she could get to the next book in the series.

Outlaw by Nicole James

Another book on here from Nicole James, now this is something my mom has really gotten into MC (Motorcycle Club Books).  You will see a few more series of MC books on this list as I think she has read 4 or 5 series.  It makes me wonder if my mom would have married a MC guy if she never met my dad.  She does have a friend that is a preacher in a Motorcycle Club.

Hawk’s Property by Chiah Wilder

Yet another MC series.  I am really seeing this as a thing with her but I can not prove anything.

Cocky Roomie by Faleena Hopkins

When my mom first recommended this series (The Cocker Brothers) I had to have her repeat what she said as I really did think she had finally lost her mind with that newest recommendation.  But it seems that she did not.

Captured by Jordan Marie

Like I said the MC books are really popular with my mom.  She keeps saying it is hot guys with tattoos but I am not really sure.  I think it is the whole thing.

Big Bad Twins by Tia Siren

I pointed out earlier my mom is really into this author and it is with her books my mom has become slowly into the menage books.  I am beginning to wonder if now instead of one man for my sister or I she is looking for multiple.

Sometimes I worry about my mom reading romance novels since I have been reading them since High School.  I don’t think she realizes how much I have read over the years that she finds it OK to show and interest in books like those above but I will admit it does give us something to talk about.

Question for Readers

What is the strangest thing you wish a family member had never recommended for you to read?  I am not sure yet if I regret my mom’s recommendations but I am weary of them for they mean that the things we talk about will change and now she is asking for me to take her to see Fifty Shades Darker.

Lord Sebastian’s Secret by Jane Ashford

I remember at one time loving historic romances, though I don’t read them often Lord Sebastian’s Secret did catch my eye.  Lord Sebastian hiding his difficulty in reading so that he is not thought to be dumb.  I really did enjoy Lord Sebastian’s Secret, which was gotten through Netgalley or an honest review.

My Review

It has been a while since I have really gotten into reading historical romances, but it is one of my challenges to myself this year.  So seeing this book available on Netgalley seemed like a sign to me.  Though this was the third book in The Duke’s Sons series.  (I found out after reading it.)  You really do not need to read the others before hand.

Though the center of this story is Sebastian and Georgina, the things other characters cause is even better.  My favorite is the younger sister who is after something of her own.  The house guest Mr. Mitra are just as interesting and causing of trouble.

Overall this was an OK of a book.  Not perfect but good none the less.  At times hard to read and very slow going but when something interesting happened it got good.

Question for Readers

Have you read the previous books in this series?  What are your favorite Historical Romances?
