On her thirty-first birthday, hopeless romantic Kelsey Callihan has all but given up on happily ever afters, which is why she agrees to a risqué proposition from Sterling Canyon’s notorious playboy, backcountry skier Trip Lexington. After all, every girl needs a little fun, and with Trip, there are no mixed signals or risks of a broken heart. And if his tips can help her land a husband in the process, all the better.
Trip couldn’t be happier with his secret, no-strings fling with sweet and sexy Kelsey until she calls it quits after meeting a man she believes could share her dream of marriage and family. His jealousy turns to outrage when he discovers that the man is his estranged half brother and lifelong rival.
Now Trip must decide whether the fire in his gut is due to sibling rivalry or something much more dangerous…like love.
Here I am into another foray into the wonderful world of beautiful, soft and gentle literary cotton wool. After reading a couple of non fiction books and then having some serious sinusitis that left me neither wanting to blog nor read, I did neither. However, I have this book to review as well as others so I shall get on with it. I loved this book. It’s the second of the Sterling Canyon series and the second of the three female friends, Avery, Kelsey and Emma is the lead female protagonist in this book.
Kelsey was pictured in the last book as a hopeless romantic and was nicknamed “boomerang” by Grey, Avery’s partner when she was chasing after him. Trip, the main male character joined in with it which does come back to bite him on the ass at one stage but I will say no more than that as I don’t want to add any spoilers to this review at all about any of these books.
You can almost see the heartache waiting to happen at first, but you realise as the pages turn that there is more to this story than a no strings attached sex kind of thing. Kelsey displays fortitude and bravery in this story and proves herself to be much more than the book initially paints her to be. Trip also shows a side to his personality which is more than the town Casanova.
It is very difficult to say much more about this story without major spoilers but if you like Jamie Beck and these books then you will really enjoy this story. I give it a four out of five star read. Enjoy the book.
Be kind to each other.x
