Title: Domo Arigato, Mr. Toronto
Author: Kelli Jean
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 13, 2017


Just when environmental scientist Dr. Emery Bradford’s globe-trotting days seem to be winding down, she heads to Canada to help a sexy, bearded park warden, Julian Michael Jensen, investigate the unnatural wildlife and their deaths in the Algonquin Provincial Park.

The moment Julian and Emery meet, heated fireworks ignite, and keeping on task proves to be challenging as they battle their desire for one another. However, they have an important job to do that requires discretion and focus because what’s hidden in the forest threatens not only the wildlife, but possibly also their very survival, but new obstacles start to present themselves behind every rock and tree.

Can they hold on to their intensely growing attraction for each other while attempting to save Algonquin Provincial Park? Or will running for their lives destroy everything they are fighting for?






Amazon/Goodreads rating: 5/5

Once again, Kelli Jean does not disappoint. This story is a dramatic departure from her last series, Ten Thousand, which dealt with some very heavy subjects. Not that environmental pollution is lite fare, but it's a lot easier to digest on an emotional level. Along with a little lighter plot, the chemistry between Emery and Julian is fun and steamy. I don't know that I'd call this entirely 'comedy', but it's definitely amusing, at times, and easy to digest.

As always, I was thoroughly submerged in this world, swimming and hiking with Julian and Emery as they made their way through the backcountry, ready to jump in and join their cause. I'm hoping Kelli will give us more of this world in the form of Nate's story, because I really want all the details on that! I don't think I've read a Kelli Jean story yet that didn't make me want more, more, more. This new world is no different. I'm excited for whatever she brings to the table next!


Born and raised in Miami, Kelli Jean traded the tropical heat for the arctic. Now she deals with twenty-four-hour daylight in the summer, zero sunlight in the winter, and believes the Northern Lights make up for the mind-boggling amount of ice and snow she has to put up with for seven months out of the year. She’s surrounded by mountains and ocean and sheep, and claims her bizarre sense of humor is what keeps her sane.

The insane don’t know they’re insane.

Kelli uses her imagination to create worlds she can escape to from the mundane tasks of everyday life, such as washing the damn dishes and vacuuming up Legos off the floor—and don’t get her started on the mad amount of cat hair on the end of the couch. She gave up on that a long time ago. When the household goes to sleep at night, she writes down everything that happened in her head while doing such tedious chores. But she enjoys living in her own head, so that’s pretty cool.

Technology terrifies her. She can barely turn on a computer, and was completely shocked when she’d actually written a book on one. To this day, she has no explanation for this baffling mystery. It took her three years to realize she can take screen shots of messages and pictures of bearded, tattooed men with her phone. Now that she’s mastered this task, her phone is slowly dying, and she’s nervous that she’s going to have to buy a new one and it will take her another three years to learn how to use it.
