Bubbles & Books May 2018 Review

Bubbles and Books May 2018 - loving cara book

Loving Cara (Love Under the Big Sky Book 1) by Kristen Proby – Retail Value $12.62

This month’s book is book 1 from the Love Under the Big Sky series, Loving Cara. I am about half-way through this book and all I can say is that it is steamy! The setting and characters aren’t ones that I identify with in a big way, but the overall story-telling is interesting, and again, so steamy. While this isn’t a book I would reach for on my own at a bookstore, I think it makes a great beach read.

From Amazon:

In her sizzling new Love Under the Big Sky series, USA TODAY bestselling author Kristen Proby sets the stage for a passionate reunion under the breathtaking Montana sky.

CHEMISTRY WAS NEVER THIS SEXY IN HIGH SCHOOL.

Cara Donovan’s summer tutoring job is turning out to be a challenge—and not just because of her troubled twelve-year-old student. It’s his uncle Josh who’s the real problem. If problem is the word for an irresistibly cocky, muscle-bound rancher with a taste for tight Levi’s and shameless flirtation…

Cara is nothing like the wallflower Josh King remembers good-naturedly teasing in high school. This Cara is gorgeous, confident, fun. From the moment the fiery teacher steps foot on his family’s Lazy K Ranch, the stubborn playboy is determined to corral her. So what happens when his luscious lover takes over the reins?

The first in a steamy trilogy, Kristen Proby’s enthralling novel is filled to the brim with one hardworking family’s triumphs and challenges, all the wild adventure of the modern West, and a whole lot of titillating fun.

Bubbles and Books May 2018 - premium handsoap bar

Bubbles and Books April 2018 - soap and tray

Bubbles & Books Premium Handmade Soap in Spring Rain Scrub

I love receiving a new bar of soap each month! These premium bars are always so fragrant, and I am loving this fresh scent. I can’t really put my finger on exactly what this smell reminds me of. To me, it really is just a fresh and clean smell. As strange as this might be, I love putting bars of soap in my dresser drawers to use as a sort of “air freshener” which is what I decided to do with this bar!

Bubbles and Books May 2018 - sticker

Coffee, Books, & Rain Sticker

This little sticker is great for any book lover. I don’t really have a need for a sticker like this, but I am going to keep to gift to a friend that I know will love it. A rainy day always calls for a good book and some yummy coffee!

Bubbles and Books May 2018 - bath bomb

Bubbles & Books Kiss Me Bath Bomb

You can pretty much always expect to receive a bath bomb from Bubbles & Books. I love collecting these to use for myself or to give them away as gifts. I don’t usually use bath bombs when I am pregnant, but I love this scent so much I am going to save it to use after baby arrives. This has a light floral scent, almost like a bed of roses. So lovely!

Bubbles and Books May 2018 - colonial coffee

Colonial Colombian Coffee, 2.5 oz. – Buy a box of 100 for $84.99

Now, this is a strong bag of coffee! I only let myself have one cup of coffee a day, but I didn’t feel as though I needed more after one cup of this Colonial coffee, it was so strong. The coffee is 100% Colombian and is already ground so you don’t need a grinder to enjoy a cup right away. The flavors are bold with a light sweetness to it. We used this whole bag within a few days it was that delicious!

Bubbles and Books May 2018 - candles Bubbles and Books May 2018 - candles 2

Beaches of Tunisia Candles in Sweet Rain & China Rain

It was such a nice surprise to receive these little tea candles! They are made of soy wax and hand poured. They both are very small, nothing that will last too long, but they are perfect for a bathroom. The candles aren’t labeled, so I am not positive which candle is which scent, but they both are fairly similar. They smell like a summer day after a thunderstorm, very refreshing and clean.

Verdict: This month’s box was fairly standard with a few surprises! I really loved receiving the tea candles, and I am always a fan of the soap and bath bombs. Each had a clean scent to them that is very refreshing. I thought the sticker was a bit odd and not something I would really want or use, but I am hoping to give it to a friend that will appreciate it. While the book is not my usual cup of tea, it is a great summertime read that is keeping my attention. Did I mention it is steamy?!
