Unexpectedly Hers by Jamie Beck

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining PR by the Book as we bring you into the fold of the Sterling Canyon series by author Jamie Beck.  It's the third release, but my first experience with it, and just what did I think?  Well, a little of this and a little of that, but let's not be rude.  Introductions come first for a reason!  Ready or not, here comes today's book of choice...

Unexpectedly Hers
Sterling Canyon series, Book 3
Jamie Beck
Montlake Romance

About the book...
By day, bashful wallflower Emma Duffy works at her family’s bed-and-breakfast. By night, she secretly pens erotic romance hot enough to melt the snow in their cozy Rockies town.

But Emma’s real life is about to heat up when her mother books the entire inn to a professional snowboarder, hoping the publicity will put them on the map. In a karmic twist of fate, that guest is Wyatt Lawson, the man with whom Emma had shared the secret one-night stand that became the inspiration for her novel and its dreamy hero. Worse, a film crew is documenting his comeback just as her debut is about to hit the shelves. Emma’s only saving grace is that Wyatt doesn’t remember her—and hopefully he never will.

When Wyatt arrives in Sterling Canyon for several weeks of intense training, the last tumble he expects to take is falling for a girl, especially one as shy as Emma. Unlike groupies with their hidden agendas, she isn’t using him—or so he believes…until the film crew uncovers Emma’s pen name and steamy novel.

Wyatt’s comeback run can withstand a fall or two, but can his heart recover from this crash and burn?

Despite the "mommy porn" excerpt in the beginning (whipped cream, nudity...not really my cup of reading tea...though funny enough the whipped cream theme carried over into my next read...), the story holds promise... as does the reverse May/December one night stand history. They aren't that far apart (6 years) but because she's the older one, it seems to be more of a my head, it's not, but it could have to do with the age of the audience.  Anywho...

It was liberating to see Emma let loose and be herself, even if it started as a one night experiment and she didn't always want to expose that side of her heart to potential retribution.  I totally get Emma's dilemma. Being *good* is great but every girl wants to be remembered for/as something more.  Whether it's a great dancer, a snazzy dresser, a kick-butt soccer player, a cooking diva, or "insert-your-passion-here"...we all want to be seen as more than what's on the surface, what the world perceives at a glance...problem is?  The only way for that to happen is to SHOW THE WORLD WHO WE ARE.  Talk about a great message beneath all the flirty remarks, and snow flying fun.

 In the end, I can't say I'm in love with the entirety of story, as I actually had a hard time wrapping my mind around these two characters as anything but a passing fancy, but it definitely had its moments. Emma is a quirky leading lady, while Wyatt is Mr-Hot-Stuff-that-might-be-rethinking-his-life-plan.  When the two interact, it can go from sub zero to who-turned-the-heat-on in a hurry, but the magic really happens when their hearts finally align. attention to the supporting characters, Ryder, Mari, Adam, and so on, because they really help MAKE the story; no lie.

YA Reads BLOG TOUR: Love in the Friend Zone by Molly E. Lee - SPOTLIGHT!

HI there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining a YA Reads Blog Tour already in progress starring a NEW RELEASE via Entangled Teen.  It's a novel about the craziness of your teenage years...parties, hormones, and shenanigans included.  Ready or not, here goes today's title in the spotlight...

Grad Night series, Book 1

About the book...
The only thing worse than not being able to tell your best friend you’re head over heels in love with him? Having to smile and nod when he enlists your help to ensnare the girl of his dreams.

Braylen didn’t even want to go to Lennon Pryor’s epic graduation-night party, but when Fynn begs her to be his “wingwoman,” she can’t deny him. Talking up her BFF—how he’s magic behind a camera, with a killer sense of humor and eyelashes that frame the most gorgeous blue eyes in the history of forever—is easy. Supporting his efforts to woo someone so completely wrong for him? Not so much.

Fynn knows that grad night is his last shot before leaving for college to find true love. And thanks to Bray, he gets his chance with the beautiful Katy Evans. But over the course of the coolest party of their high school careers, he starts to see that perhaps what he really wants has been in front of him all along. Bray’s been his best friend since kindergarten, though, and he’d rather have her in his life as a friend than not at all.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains one epic party, complete with every high-schoolers-gone-bad shenanigan, and two best friends whose sexual chemistry is off the charts...if only they’d succumb to it.
