When Deputy Sam Brooks commits to something, nothing can sway him–not just on the job but in his private life. He’s the one who stuck around to take care of his mother after his father’s accidental death. And he’s the one–perhaps the only one–who believes Sierra Rose is the perfect girl for him. Safe, practical, and organized, she’s nothing like her hippie, impulsive, bleeding-heart sister, Willow.
Willow, however, has been in love with Sam Brooks for as long as she can remember. But she wants her sister to have a happy ending. Besides, Willow has other things to focus on–namely, nabbing the job of her dreams. Best thing for her to do is to purge Sam from her heart.
Neither can predict the events that will bring them together in a fight for their lives in the forbidding wilderness of Glacier National Park. Stranded, injured, and with the winter weather closing in, Sam and Willow will have to work together to save a crew of terrified teenagers. As they fight to survive, they might just discover a new hope for love.
Lots of action, never a dull moment in this book.
I loved the turmoil of Sam and Willow’s first kiss and how that played out. And the constant question of when would Sam see Willow as more and that his relationship with Sierra wasn’t going to work out. It really was a tangled mess.
I enjoyed the many subplots playing out and another romance build into the story as well.
I will be honest, something in the book seemed off to me. Which I hate to say because I know Susan is a great author, but for some reason I felt like the writing was a bit choppy. There were a lot of one word sentences. Which I do think can be effective but used often became distracting to me. But that’s just me.
The overall story is good and very interesting.
