Romancing the Ranger by Jennie Marts

Who doesn’t love a book that begins with calamity? I know I love it when crazy things happen in the beginning, it just sets the book up to be all the more fun. We meet our heroine, Reese, right after she had a breakup with her jerk of a boyfriend, and all she can think about doing is getting rid of everything that reminded her of him, and come on, who hasn’t thought about doing that before? Of course setting fire to his stuff while in the middle of a forest, maybe not the best plan. Calamity ensues and before Reese knows it she is under arrest and sentences to rebuild the outhouse that she burned down. Great set up for romance! So Reese and I, well let’s just say I could identify with some of her issues. Reese often times find it easier to just go along with what the more overbearing people in her life want her to do, like her dad, and her now very ex boyfriend. She’s really well off financially but she isn’t really doing anything that she loves, she always had a passion for writing and it was always just kind of brushed to the side by other people. The great thing about Reese though is that she is starting to see that about herself and she really wants to change, she wants to live her life the way she wants to and not the way other people tell her to. So this new […]

10 Questions with Jennie Marts

Earlier today I reviewed Hidden Away, a super cute romance that I highly recommend you check out, and now I have the author Jennie Marts here with us to do one of my favorite features, 10 Questions! Q: What is the one thing you never leave the house without and why. A: Chapstick and sunglasses. I sort of freak out if I don’t have either of those- like I might die of either sun stroke or chapped lips before I get home in an hour. But in my defense, the Colorado sunshine is brutal and the air is really dry. Q: What is the number one item on your birthday wish list? A: Usually it is jewelry of some sort. I LOVE jewelry- doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, some of my favorite stuff is matching earring and necklace sets from Kohl’s. I love to accessorize and my family all knows that they are safe getting me any kind of jewelry. I also love books. And this year, I am asking for a pair of noise-cancelling headphones so I can work in Panera and not get distracted by eavesdropping on other patron’s conversations. Q: What’s your biggest pet peeve? A: Mean people, I guess. Life’s too short to be mean. Q: What’s your favorite book? A: Really? That’s sooo hard! My top favorite books would be the Stephanie Plum series, all of the Harry Potters, the Outlander series, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, and Montana Sky by Nora Roberts. Q: What’s your go to song […]

Hidden Away by Jennie Marts

I adore second chance romances, especially when it is one of those first loves situations. I think everyone can identify with the whole, I wonder if things would have worked out if we had stayed together. That being said, this book took me through the ringer, I mean I was sad, I was happy, I was heartbroken, this book just pulls your emotional heartstrings all over the place. First things first, be prepared, this book starts of sad. Yes the synopsis does warn you that Cherry’s dies and that’s how she ends up with her nephew, but man oh man does it totally just break your heart. From the moment that Cherry gets the news, to when she has to tell her nephew and has to basically bring him into her life that is kind of falling apart as it is, man these two had it tough. I have to say the thing I admired the most about Cherry is how she just keeps going. Life sure gets a kick out of knocking her down, first with the fire in her diner, to her cousin (who is also her close friend) dying, to having to fight off her family who wants to take away her nephew from her; but honestly Cherry doesn’t give up. I loved how hard working she is, and how great she is with her nephew. There is of course some family secret stuff going on in this story, and while i would love to talk about […]
