Book Club Thursday: May Reading Challenge

Hi Readers! I can't believe how fast the time is going. It's the last meeting of the month here at Book Club Thursday. Thanks for joining us. This week, we are having our May Reading Challenge.

My choice: Read a novella

Published February 2015 by Author Erin Nicholas

Kate and Levi thought Christmas in Sapphire Falls was crazy.

They haven’t seen anything yet.

After just eight weeks, Levi Spencer is feeling right at home in small-town Nebraska. He loves breakfasts with the old farmers at the diner. Loves learning how to haul wood and birth calves and snow-blow his drive. But he loves something more… or rather someone. And she lives in California. Levi wants Kate to ask him to move to the West Coast with her but if she knows how he feels about Sapphire Falls, she’ll never ask him to leave. So, he’ll have to downplay his feelings for his new hometown…somehow.

Kate’s back in Sapphire Falls to surprise Levi on the most romantic day of the year… and with her plan to stay in Sapphire Falls this time. But she soon discovers Levi hasn’t shared everything about his new life. In fact, he almost seems to be trying to scare her off with all the talk of snakes and bugs and bad coffee and worse oatmeal. He even lied about the county’s best muffins being right here in Sapphire Falls. Why would he deny her muffins?! The sex is still off the charts, but if that’s all Levi wants, Kate will have to learn to deal with it…somehow.

Warning: A very sweet story ahead, including cheesy quotes about love, candy and chocolate, a town that overdoes everything including construction paper hearts on Valentine’s Day and two people who are crazy in love—with each other and with this quirky town.

The more I read this series, the more I love it. You meet Kate and Levi in the previous novella GETTING IN THE SPIRIT which takes place at Christmas. Now it's eight weeks later and Kate wants to surprise Levi for Valentine's Day as they have been in a long distance relationship. 
     This couple is crazy about each other. They are happiest when they are together in Sapphire Falls. While Levi and Kate communicate well in bed, they are having a hard time communicating about what they want for their future. This is where more of their sexy and hilarious adventure begins. Just as when they first met, they are part of a comedy of errors which causes some doubts and insecurity to surface in them both. And you want to shake them both and say "talk to each other."
     As usual, this story is an enjoyable and sexy good time. I love Levi and Kate and how they have changed and brought out the best in each other. Their love scenes sizzle and the banter is sure to make anyone giggle. And they do have fun with food! They have great chemistry and you will root for their happily ever after. I discovered this series in the middle, so I am now going back and reading them in order which I recommend. Sapphire Falls is a fun, entertaining and special quirky town with a bunch of great characters. You should stop by for a visit!
