By day, bashful wallflower Emma Duffy works at her family’s bed-and-breakfast. By night, she secretly pens erotic romance hot enough to melt the snow in their cozy Rockies town.
But Emma’s real life is about to heat up when her mother books the entire inn to a professional snowboarder, hoping the publicity will put them on the map. In a karmic twist of fate, that guest is Wyatt Lawson, the man with whom Emma had shared the secret one-night stand that became the inspiration for her novel and its dreamy hero. Worse, a film crew is documenting his comeback just as her debut is about to hit the shelves. Emma’s only saving grace is that Wyatt doesn’t remember her—and hopefully he never will.
When Wyatt arrives in Sterling Canyon for several weeks of intense training, the last tumble he expects to take is falling for a girl, especially one as shy as Emma. Unlike groupies with their hidden agendas, she isn’t using him—or so he believes…until the film crew uncovers Emma’s pen name and steamy novel.
Wyatt’s comeback run can withstand a fall or two, but can his heart recover from this crash and burn?
I’ve grown really attached to the Sterling Canyon characters that Jamie Beck has created and feel a little sad that I only have one more book to read before the series is done. Anyway, enough being maudlin and on with the review.
This, like the other two before it is a really sweet book and there is an interesting balance between all of the lead characters. I was really pleased to see Emma in the limelight this time around. She deserved it so much!
She is a sweet, shy woman and lived for way too long in her mother’s shadow. Seeing the way that Ms Beck writes her into being a stronger and more independent woman was really gratifying.
This book was finished in a couple of nights and is perfect for curling up with a box of chocolate with.
A four out of five star read.
