Publication date: June 15th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


With five men for every woman, the selection of eligible bachelors in Breckenridge, Colorado during ski season couldn’t get much better. Casey Cassidy can’t help but enjoy the view. But Casey didn’t move here to sit on the sidelines. Desperate to get over Jason and find a man that wants a family, Casey finds Blaine Johnson – a wish come true. A hunky surfer turned ski instructor, he checks off every requirement on her list.

Except for the one she forgot to add.

Blaine has a secret. A secret so big it keeps intimacy smoldering, when Casey needs fire. No matter how hard she tries, the embers won’t ignite. Can she live without passion to get the family she craves?

When Jason comes to town, Casey questions everything she wished for. Their consuming love threatens to explode and ruin her dream. Will she have to choose between a family and the love of her life?


My Thoughts:

I'm kind of on the fence about this one. First, it felt a little disjointed to me, like the beginning of the story didn't quite connect with the rest; it was just a little strange to me about how it proceeded from there to the bulk of the story. I don't know quite what it was that set the tone for me, but it was there just the same and made reading this a challenge. One of the biggest challenges was that I didn't really like the main female character, Casey, that much. She just seemed kind of wishy-washy in the love department; for instance, right after she catches her boyfriend cheating on her with his ex, she sleeps with her ex - then still moves across the country after hooking him once again and within months, she's got a new boyfriend. And despite the fact that there were all kinds of warning signs about the new guy, she still tried to fit him into this specific box she wanted him in, despite still being in love with her ex, who follows her out to Colorado. Once the ex, Jason, follows her out to Colorado, things get really complicated, especially considering that he's been seeing someone new at home. Needless to say, the relationships in this book are tangled and messed up and you almost need a score card to keep track of them.On the plus side, I really liked Jason. I thought he was sweet and kind and Casey really didn't deserve him, but he was also loyal to her, too. There were some unexpected moments in this book, but for the most part, not a whole lot to raise it above others in its genre. But it was a nice read.
