New beginnings are irresistible…
Christian Montgomery is burnt out. The family business is his entire world, and Christian has never stopped trying to atone for a mistake made years ago. His only break from grueling work is sitting on his beachfront deck, watching the California surfers, and wishing he could be that carefree.
Sophie Bennington was happy living in her small Kansas hometown…until she learned her entire life was a lie. So she hightailed it to the West coast, where she loves to surf, even though she’s no good at it, and she’s hoping to start a new career.
A chance encounter shows Christian and Sophie that no matter what happened in the past, the future is bright and new…but only if you have the courage to open your heart…

A Samantha Chase book is always a sure bet for me, I just love the way her characters come off the page and grab my attention. This book was no different. With Christian Montgomery and Sophie Bennington you feel the emotions from each as they are really both just trying to find themselves and while both have family behind them to support them they really feel alone. This story of them finding each other and then learning to really start over and to love.

The Montgomery series is one I really enjoy reading, I love the family dynamics and how you keep seeing characters from past books, and ones that most likely will have their own stories at some point. These kind of series are my favorites and the ones I just cannot wait for the next one to come out and read.

The Instant Pot has been the runaway sensation of multicooker kitchen appliances. And the ketogenic diet, with its emphasis on high fat and protein intake along with very low carb consumption, has been embraced as a radical new way to eat to lose weight and get healthy. The Instant Pot's versatility as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, and rice cooker makes it an incredibly useful multi-cooker appliance that can be used to cook virtually anything, and it's also the ideal appliance for cooking anything keto.
Keto in an Instant features over 100 ketogenic recipes all designed to be made in the Instant Pot. Each recipe includes key nutritional data for keto followers, as well as clear, detailed instructions for using the Instant Pot to create the recipes. In addition to the recipes, readers will gain insight on how the ketogenic diet works, and benefit from practical guidance for following a ketogenic eating plan. Also included is useful information on using and maintaining the Instant Pot, tips and tricks for using the Instant Pot in the kitchen, and much more.


I really enjoy cookbooks,especially ones that are about Keto recipes. Because while I’m not prepared to go full Keto right now I do like the idea of Keto and working towards going full Keto. Add into the mix that these recipes are for the Instant pot, what’s not to like about this book, right?

I liked the information this book gives you about Ketos and using the images helped me to get a better understanding about the Keto diet. There is also good information and images about using an Instant Pot, but this I already know so I only skimmed it. For someone new to an Instant Pot this would be useful though.

The pictures are amazing, and most of the recipes do have pictures which I think is very helpful. Though I do envy those who can get the recipes to look like these pictures.

This book is filled with recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and deserts. The ingredients are easy to find, and the instructions are easy to follow.

If you are looking for a great Keto cookbook I highly recommend that you check this one out
