Book Review: The Most Important Catch

Book Review: The Most Important Catch by: Jaclyn M. Hawkes

RUN OR DIE!  She knew too much, and she’d seen too much. And the police refused to help. Knowing that she was to be the next scheduled death, Kelly Campbell hid underhead to toe black leather and a tinted motorcycle helmet and ran for her life.

When the weather turned cold, she turned south. She ended up in North Carolina, home to one of the most famed and eligible NFLfootball stars in the whole league; only she didn’t know that. She thought he was a businessman. Not being a huge fan, all she knew was that he was incredibly attractive, kind, generous, and that she was safe with him. Or was she?

His brand of fame proved to be all but deadly, but his fame wasn't nearly as lethal as his attraction. He kept her safe and protected. All except her heart.

My Thoughts:

This is the second book I have reviewed by Jaclyn M. Hawkes, and it was just as good as the first. This book is a great weekend read. A clean LDS read that has suspence, romance, and football all wrapped up in one. I enjoyed following the budding romance between Kelly and Robby, and the lively banter between the two of them. Though life throws unexpected passes, Kelly and Robby hold fast to their faith and stay close to their Heavenly Father, with a steadfast faith that He has a plan and will never lead them astray. It's no coincidence that Kelly's motorcycle runs out of gas on the road that Robby travels. It's no coincidence that Robby is in need of someone to be the caretaker of his newly acquired, secluded home. The Lord will make a way for His children, if they but trust in Him.

I found this to be an easy read that grabbed me from the beginning. I felt that pacing was smooth and not forced. The character development was great. I love Robby Robideaux! He's every woman's dream come true: he's an attractive, well-built, returned missionary, who is kind, gentle, loving, humble, spiritually strong and who happens to be a famous NFL Wide Receiver. Who could ask for more?

I would recommend adding this book to your Must-Read Summer Book list!

Back in the Saddle, Again!

Oh.My.Goodness. It's been so long since I posted anything on this blog. I'm ashamed of myself for letting it go! Bad, Kristie!  :(

So sorry guys but alas life threw a curveball at me, as it tends to do to us occasionally, and I had to spend my time and energy with some health problems while trying to work full-time, go to school full-time, and of course attend all my other obligations like basketball games, scout meetings, dinner, housecleaning, laundry....the list goes on and on.

BUT...I'm ready to get back in the game. I recently returned home from my 3rd LDStorymakers writing conference and I had a blast as usual. I came home with lots of motivation and ideas, and so much great information to help me on my journey to writing a novel.

I will be brief tonight, but I will say that I have some fun stuff coming up. I am scheduled to do a book review soon. This will include an interview with the author, Jaclyn Hawkins, as well as an e-book giveaway!

So, send me the questions that you are dying to ask! This will be my second review for Jaclyn Hawkins. Check back in my blog log for the last reviews.

Looking forward to hearing all your great questions, and I'll post more on the review date and giveaway as soon as possible!

Love Always,
