About the Book
With a kidney transplant behind her, Avery Adams is determined to channel her inner adventurer and explore everything life has to offer. Only problem is, the closest she’s ever come to a real-life adventure was sixth-grade science camp. So to seize the summer in her rustic Sierra Nevada town, she takes a job as a guide at the local adventure lodge. But Avery doesn’t realize her biggest challenge will register at six-plus feet of rugged good looks and alpha-male charm.
As a member of the Sequoia Elite Mountain Rescue team, Tyson Donovan has made a life out of cheating death and rescuing weekend warriors from the treacherous terrain. “The world is my home” is more than just a motto; it’s what scares off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. When his dad’s health lands the family’s adventure lodge in serious danger of going up in flames, he moves home—and quickly remembers why he left. Until he meets Avery, the irresistible new guide who makes him want to stay.
Tyson gives the inexperienced Avery a lesson in romance that her books could never teach her. And with her undeniable spirit for life, Avery shows Tyson the healing power of love. But with one misstep, everything comes crashing down, and they’ll both have to take the biggest leap of all—into the kind of adventure that lasts a lifetime.
I feel like I’m a broken record when it comes to reviewing Marina Adair’s books but they are just that good. I will warn you that this book brought tears to my eyes but it was so good!
I loved both Ty and Avery’s characters from the very start. Both characters have backgrounds that makes your heart break for them and have you rooting for them to get their happily ever after. It’s not smooth sailing but so satisfying watching them each overcome the stumbling blocks in their life.
Their romance was so touching to watch as it develops and was so satisfying to finish. You can’t go wrong with Marina Adair. She’s definitely an auto-buy author for me.
