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.

This is a novella, about half the length of the novels in this series. Read only if you like fun, small town contemporary romances where they talk dirty and act even dirtier.

This is the continued story of Kate and Levi.  Levi loves his new life in Sapphire Falls but he loves Kate more.  He wants to be with her but thinks she won't ask him to move to San Francisco where she lives.  Kate is ready to move to Sapphire Falls but Levi is acting strange.  It's almost like he doesn't want her to think he loves living in Sapphire Falls.  Can these two get it together and start communicating outside the bedroom? These two are setting the sheets on fire and the couch and the counter and so on.  I'll never look at ranch dressing the same or broccoli for that matter.  The one thing they lack is communication.  Thank God for Tucker Bennett.  He's got a way of putting the truth out there.  Sexy man!  This is another fantastic and sexy story from that amazing series called Sapphire Falls.  I can't wait for my next visit.

Being truthful is a good thing and self doubt is a bad thing! Erin Nicholas shows that in this charming fast paced love story. There is no doubt that these two love each other more than anything. Erin Nicholas is a one-click author!

This was a really cute story! I loved getting more of Levi and Kate. Now I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in the Sapphire Falls series!

We first met Kate and Levi in Getting in the Spirit. That novella should be read first, before reading this one. I love Kate and Levi! They have such great chemistry together. We get another glimpse into their lives for Valentine's Day in Sapphire Falls. You get to see how they are doing in their relationship since falling for each other eight weeks ago.  You also get to see more of Tucker Bennett and more of Tucker is always a good thing! Here are some of my favorite quotes/scenes. The gazebo was lit with white and pink twinkle lights and there were pieces of poster board attached to the inside walls where Sapphire Falls residents had written their own messages of everlasting love. His heart sped up with that thought, but it felt warm at the same time. A family. That was what he wanted. And what he wanted to give to Kate--a family that would be there for both of them, that would be solid and secure, that would be normal. "Broccoli?' she asked with a laugh. "I'm not sure even you can make broccoli sexy." One corner of his mouth curled up. "Challenge accepted" I definitely recommend this book!

This is a great follow-up to the novella Getting in the Spirit! What would you do if you quit your job to be with your boyfriend only to see him being auctioned as a Bachelor as soon as you hit town? Then you start learning he has been keeping secrets from you? Especially when you fall in love over the course of 4 days during Christmas. This is a story about a failure to communicate, misunderstandings, sexy food scenes & finding out that you really are meant for one another. It's Valentine’s Day, Kate shows up unexpectedly to surprise Levi. Only to find him being auctioned off as a Bachelor. Kate is ready to move to Sapphire Falls & become a part of the town but it doesn't appear that Levi is ready for that. Levi thinks Kate wants to stay in San Francisco so he doesn't want her to know a how much he loves it in Sapphire Falls because then she will never ask him to move. He's found the ring and ready to take the next step. What happens may surprise you!

Levi has a choice stay in Vegas and get and early grave or slow down in life. He chose to go see his brother in Sapphire Falls. He promised himself a year to make his life right. Kate is an amazing woman. She has a choice also, follow her heart or stay miserable. She surprises Levi in Sapphire Falls. They have an amazing time together. Levi shows Kate around town and they have some super steamy sessions. They get to the Cupidcrazy dance and some things are misunderstood and Kate wants to go home. Will Levi let her know what the truth is or will he let her go home without him? This is such a cute story I can't wait for more

Super sweet, smart and sexy!  Another home run by Erin Nicholas.  Kate and Levi's story moves forward and we are lucky enough to go along for the ride.  Read it for the broccoli scene alone!!  A fun read for a snowy day!

More Kate and Levi, yes please! Loved getting to see them come together again for Valentines Day and continue their love story.  Nothing like a little jealousy to get things rolling when neither party wants to admit what they're really thinking! Really enjoyed the glimpses of Tucker Bennett that were thrown in as well, can't wait to read his book and see if he can find himself someone to make him some cobbler, lol. The whole Sapphire Falls series is great so start from the beginning and read them all!

Getting in the Mood is the newest addition to the Sapphire Falls Series and the nest installment of the romance between Levi and Kate who we first met in the novella Getting In The Spirit. I was so excited that Erin decided to re-visit Kate and Levi who came together and fell in love with each other and like many of Erin's readers have quickly fallen in love with the town and people of Sapphire Falls. Kate has decided to surprise Levi by coming to town for Valentines Day when he thought she would be unable to. Levi has moved to town and is trying to fit in. He spends his mornings with the older guys at Dottie's Cafe and has even bought himself a big truck. However he has realized that Sapphire Falls isn't what he needs most in life and that is Kate. But her life is in California, so as the book progresses he tries to get her to not like Sapphire Falls. I adore these two and I love being able to slowly see their love progress and build. The combination of Kate and Sapphire Falls makes Levi a better person and Levi makes Kate's life so much better. Add in the fact that somehow along the way Erin thinks up a way to make Broccoli Sexy..... You heard me right Broccoli!!

I just love my visits to Sapphire Falls. This novella will not disappoint you, Kate has returned to Sapphire Falls to surprise Levi for Valentine's Day. This is a sweet but sexy read, that will want you to move to Sapphire Falls. When Kate returns to Sapphire Falls, she finds Levi in a Bachelor's Auction, oh the bidding is so much fun. They are such a fun couple from the bedroom, to the kitchen, in the car and just having fun in the snow. With a few misunderstandings, can they figure out their future together. I just love how Erin writes food into all of her books, who knew how much fun broccoli could be, I get the chocolate though. I highly recommend this book for a fun read, but fair warning you will want to return to Sapphire Falls too.

&quot;Getting in the Mood&quot; is a novella written by Erin Nicholas, and it is part of her <i>Sapphire Falls</i> series. It features Levi Spencer and Kate Leggot. When Erin announced late last year that she was doing a follow-up to Levi and Kate's story, I couldn't have been happier! They were such a hot, enjoyable, and fun couple in &quot;Getting in the Spirit&quot;, and they definitely weren't any different in this novella. &quot;Getting in the Mood&quot; fast forwards a couple of weeks. Levi and Kate love each other. Levi loves the small town of Sapphire Falls, but he loves Kate more. He would go anywhere Kate goes, and if that means San Francisco where she works, so be it. Meanwhile, Kate wants to be with Levi. She plans to move to Sapphire Falls to be nearer to him and her friends. We get to see a lot of the gang we've grown to love from this series, and of course, it wouldn't be complete without Tucker trying to woo Kate much to Levi's disapproval. Levi definitely shows his alpha side whenever Tucker does this which is just hilarious! What stood out for me was the auction scene as well as when Levi and Kate go to the diner. How can Levi deprive Kate of the most amazing fried green tomatoes? Once again, wonderful job by Erin! She never lets readers down! Can't wait for Tucker's story!

I absolutely adore Kate and Levi! Getting in the Mood is the perfect book for Valentine's Day! It's short, sweet and very sexy! A great sequel to Getting in the Spirit! I love that they are both so giving and prepared to do whatever it takes to be with one another! 
kmichels More than 1 year ago
Wonderful! You must read Getting in the Spirit first, but Erin Nicholas continues that story with another sweet one in Getting in the Mood. You know the short story &quot;The Gift of the Magi&quot; by O. Henry? This short story reminds me of that, with plenty of sexiness thrown in!

This sequel story to Getting In The Spirit features Levi and Kate, eight weeks after they met in Sapphire Falls over Christmas and getting ready for Valentine's Day. Kate has returned to Sapphire Falls to surprise Levi for the holiday. Levi has bought a house and is settling in but doesn't want Kate to know how comfortable he is getting in Sapphire Falls as he wants to be with her and fully expects her to want to live in San Francisco. A comedy of errors ensues as Levi and Kate learn that no matter where they end up, home is where the heart is. This was a delightful continuation of Levi and Kate's romance! The whole town is out in full force, charming, engaging secondary characters that add to the small town feel and the humorous situations that Kate and Levi find themselves in. Lots of laughter and some sexy situations ensue, exactly what I've come to expect from this author. I liked how Kate and Levi aren't perfect and are willing to own up to that, including how they need to learn to communicate with each other better in order to make their romance work. Sexual attraction will only get you so far and it's the other stuff that will make a relationship go the distance. There are some intriguing snippets of other characters that you know will end up starring in their own stories, and I can't wait to see more of this charming small town and its eclectic folk. 5 stars for a sweet and sexy story.

Ah! Levi and Kate are back in this super sexy novella. It's Valentine's Day and Kate has to work, or so she thought. She shows up in Sapphire Falls to surprise Levi in more ways than one. This novella is super hot and it was so much fun watching the progression of Kate and Levi's relationship. They fell fast and hard and still aren't quite sure of themselves. Kate wants to move to Sapphire Falls while Levi is content to live with Kate in California. Each trying to please the other leads to a comedy of errors. The book is a fun ride on a curvy back road. I can't wait to see where their journey leads.

Levi and Kate are back. In typical Sapphire Falls tradition the town is all decked out for Valentine&rsquo;s Day. Kate has just made a huge decision but the minute she sees Levi on stage being auctioned off at the bachelor auction she isn&rsquo;t sure it was a good idea. Levi in in love with Sapphire Falls but loves Kate so much more but can he be direct about his feelings? Pick the book up to find out

What a fun continuation in Levi and Kate's story! They are so sweet together and perfect and combustible. They were so willing to give up their personal choice for the sake of the other. I loved how even though they have only known each other a short period of time, they knew they were supposed to be together. It may be a little fast for some,but when you know, you just know. My parents met and married within 12 weeks and had a long marriage. So I know it does happen no matter how farfetched. I cannot wait for Tucker's story. He almost stole the show for me. Looking forward go whatever cobbler comes his way. ;D But in this book one will have to settle for healthy eating. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the author.

 Loved this Valentine's story. Love the entire crew in Sapphire Falls, and this book brings us back to Levi and Kate. With misunderstandings, sexy kitchen sessions, and a date auction, this book has a bit of everything. Erin Nicholas doesn't disappoint in this Valentine's novella, and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a sexy romance read, that makes even broccoli seem sexy :) (and back off ladies, Tucker (a secondary character) belongs to me!)
