When ruggedly sexy backcountry guide Grey Lowell moves to Sterling Canyon, Colorado, after buying the ski-expedition company Backtrax, his plans don’t include romance. Still, it’s fun to look—especially across a crowded restaurant at a beauty he dubs “Bambi.” But all his plans change later that night when he’s injured by a drunk driver.
Physical therapist Avery Randall is shocked to learn that Grey’s the man her brother struck with his car, and even more stunned when he arrives at the clinic expecting her help. Despite her reservations and Grey’s silly new nickname for her, Avery agrees to work with him, and passion begins to simmer. Yet with his livelihood at stake, Grey must make tough decisions that could hurt Avery and her family. Before long, Avery’s loyalties are tested, and the choices she and Grey each make may cost them their chance at lasting love.
This book is the first of four that make up the Sterling Canyon series. I was looking forward to reading this as the blurb made it sound like an excellent story and I was in need of a nice dose of literary cotton wool. I have a thing for books that run in a series as you get a chance to get know the characters much better and can become immersed in the inter-sectioning stories.
The story is your typical handsome rugged looking guy falls for gorgeous girl and vice versa. Their paths cross in unusual circumstances and it soon becomes clear that they were meant for each other.
I liked Avery’s character a great deal as she was sassy and realistic. She was very bright and determined yet vulnerable in some areas of her life.
Grey was a kind character. He very quickly realised the damage that pushing through his insurance claim would do to Avery and her family so he does everything that he can possibly do to prevent that.
The book isn’t the most taxing read in the world but so what? That is exactly why I chose to read it. It was just what I needed to read.
A pleasant four out of five star read.
Be kind to each other.x
