Thomas and the Runaway Kite - Wilbert Awdry
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I was actually kind of impressed that this Step 1 book was able to tell a whole story, including a moral. Many Step 1 and even Step 2 books that I have read don't have actual stories. They usually just introduce the readers to characters that the reader most likely already knows from watching the show. But this one tells a simple story and teaches the importance of accepting help when you need it. 

A great lesson on friendship in a small, simple package.

Runaway Groom By Lauren Layne $1.99!
Runaway Groom (I Do, I Don't) - Lauren Layne

Gage Barrett’s reputation as a ladies’ man has been greatly exaggerated, but none of that matters after a drunken bet lands him on Jilted, a reality TV show that matches runaway grooms with wannabe brides. Now he’s stuck at a Hawaiian resort with nineteen women competing to drag him back to the altar—and one contestant who’s even more miserable than he is. Gage has no idea how feisty, independent Ellie Wright wound up in the cast, but it’s obvious she hates his guts. And if there’s one thing Gage likes, it’s a challenge. . . .

Ellie can’t believe she let her best friend talk her into exchanging her dignity for a glorified bikini contest. Still, she could use the exposure—her business is struggling—and she’ll probably be one of the first to get eliminated anyway. But Gage isn’t the shallow jerk Ellie anticipated—and he’s in no rush to send her home. As stolen kisses turn into secret trysts, she finds herself losing track of what’s real and what’s for the camera. With the wedding finale looming, this runaway groom is tempting Ellie to start believing in storybook endings.

Runaway Vampire
Runaway Vampire - Lynsay Sands Runaway Vampire - Lynsay Sands Runaway Vampire is a light and sweet read. Even though it’s number 23 it can be read as a stand-a-lone. But, I will say Dante Notte and his twin pop up in previous titles, so you might enjoy more if read in order.

Their isn't anything new to the series. It's pretty much the same, but with different characters or problems. I have to mention that I really enjoy Sands vampires. They are not your typical vampires and I like this aspect of the series.

The storyline is that Dante and his twin where sent to investigate vampire kidnappings and have gotten themselves kidnapped. Dante finds a way to get away, but now we are wondering who has kidnapped them and why? It was enjoyable the little RV drive to avoid being captured again and to protect Mary his life mate.

The romance is charming and sweet. Dante, I just adore him. He’s such a nice guy. Mary she was nice and I liked her level headedness. She had concerns being attracted to a man who looks in his mid 20’s early 30’s when she’s an old lady in her 60's, but these two got along. I had fun with the shared dreams and once Mary was changed well the life sex - makes them pass out. I always had fun with that aspect.

I will say I did miss Aunt Marguerite. She has a gift for finding life mates and brings a little humor into the story, but here we don’t have her and well this couple “accidentally” runs into each other and nature takes it’s course.

I wasn’t overly impressed and it’s not my favorite, but I still enjoyed Runaway Vampire. I must admit that I prefer the older pervious titles, the ones at the beginning. They just had so much more life, humor, and quarry fun to them. Now it just feels a little stale even though we are getting a different plot with the kidnappings.

Rated: 3 Stars

Runaway Groom by Lauren Layne
Runaway Groom (I Do, I Don't) - Lauren Layne

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I loved this book! I am really kind of surprised about that to be honest. I don't like television shows like The Bachelor at all. I think they are kind of dumb and cannot understand why anyone would subject themselves to participating in something like that. So why would I want to read a book based on the same kind of thing? It is simple - Lauren Layne wrote it so I want to read it. I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about it though. It actually turns out that this book is one of my favorites Lauren Layne books.

Gage and Ellie both end up on the reality show, Jilted. Gage is a famous actor that ends up on the show after losing a bet. He has left two women at the alter so he is the perfect man to fill the role for the show even if he is less than excited about it. Ellie wanted on the show so that she could promote her company. She hatched a plan with her friend and business partner that it would be good for business if she could wear the designer t-shirts that they sell. It turns out that Gage and Ellie seem to be the only two people that don't want to be on the show even though they are doing a pretty good job of faking it. 

I loved Gage and Ellie together. They have such wonderful chemistry with each other and I really felt their connection. I loved how they interacted with each other and I think that the parts of the book that they were alone with each other were the only times either of them really showed their true selves. I really enjoyed getting the chance to be in each of their heads so that I could really see what they were feeling. 

I had really wondered how a romance could be set on a reality show like this. It is not romantic to see the romantic interest spending time with other women. I liked that the relationship between Gage and Ellie happened when the cameras were off. Yes, there were a few situations that made things uncomfortable but I felt like both characters handled themselves well and it really helped them to realize what they were feeling for each other.

I would highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. I read this book with a big grin on my face the entire time and there were a few scenes that really had my heart beating like crazy. I had a fantastic time watching Ellie and Gage find their happily ever after and look forward to more from Lauren Layne soon.

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept via NetGalley.

Initial Thoughts
I loved this book! Really loved it! I am not a fan of The Bachelor or any of those kind of shows so I went into the book with a few doubts. Lauren Layne more than pulled it off. Ellie and Gage were wonderful characters that I wanted to see have the chance to make each other happy. I had a big ole grin on my face the whole time I was reading this one and my pulse may have been bumped up a notch a time or two.
