Trapped in his tiny mountain cabin, she didn’t expect to fall for his big heart.
Exposing a prominent criminal family with an investigative news report didn’t exactly work out the way Sabrina had hoped. Instead of basking in the glory of her article’s success, she’s on the run from a powerful man who wants her dead. To stay safe, she’s forced to trade one bad situation for another. Stuck in the Montana wilderness, she’s secluded from anything resembling civilization or the modern-day world. The only good thing about her situation is the gorgeous mountain man assigned to protect her. Too bad he isn’t the slightest bit interested in a city girl like her.
Beau likes his life quiet and simple. Give him a peaceful day hiking in the woods with his dog, and he’s a happy man. He has no use for large crowds, noisy cities or dramatic women. So when a hotshot reporter rolls into town, dragging her big-time problems with her, he should have run for the hills. Instead, he volunteered to keep her safe. Bringing her into his world won’t be easy, but if he can convince her that Montana isn’t as terrifying as she believes, they might just be the perfect match.
4,5 « Beau fan club » stars
Let’s say it as it is: it’s my third Devney Perry’s book (I know she has published four books but I haven’t been able to read The Lucky Heart yet) and I’m now a loyal follower. Devney has mastered the art of writing sweet but solid romance stories with swoony heroes.
Every hero she is writing about is fantastic in his own way and Beau certainly is just …perfect.
What’s not to love in a man:
-built like a lumberjack tall, muscled with long and thick thighs (I love muscled thigh for all the power they contain LOL);
“Beau’s features reminded me of a Spartan warrior. Long, long legs with beefy thighs. Broad shoulders and bulging arms made of muscles layered upon muscles. I’d bet my life’s savings that underneath his faded jeans and simple black thermal he resembled King Leonidas himself. Scowl and all, Beau Holt was gorgeous.”
-with stormy eyes and a strong jaw;
-able to win Koh Lanta as he loves hiking and sleeping in the woods, camping and has mastered the trickiest survival skill;
-with shoulders so wide literally and figuratively he is saving everyone all the time. Extinguishing forest fires, rescuing lost hikers, raising a fatherless nephew, manning his mom’s Fourth of July barbeque and hiding our hunted heroine;
-strong, kind with a gentle nature and calming essence;
-never ever pushing a woman to do what he thinks is best if she does not want to but rather supporting her in what she thinks is best;
I didn’t need or want a man to fight my battles for me, even if they were against the demons in my mind. I wanted a man who would hold my hand, squeezing it every now and again so I knew I wasn’t alone as I waged my own war. I wanted a man who would push me to keep battling because he knew I’d eventually win.
-admiring and respecting strong women;
-who is a dog lover.
Tell me if Beau is not the ideal book boyfriend?
We already know that Beau is Maisy’s brother and used to rescue people. So when Sabrina Felicity’s best friend shows up in Prescott having fled some criminals he’ll make it his mission to hide her far away in the woods at the most remote outpost.
The only problem?
Sabrina is a city girl through and through.
She hates bugs, can’t stand pets and has never gone camping. So her first moments at the outpost were … interesting.
But Sabrina is a strong girl and she is not about to be discouraged by roughing it up. Especially when this gorgeous hunk of a man will keep her company…
I thought I would despise Sabrina for what she has done. Yes she was a heroine taking down a criminal ring and hiding from them but what she did to succeed, why she seemed to have done this should have made me loath her. Yet I admired and empathized with her to my utter astonishment.
That’s Devney’s work here and Beau’s intake truly.
What Sabrina did was very courageous and dangerous.
“I had written an incredibly condemning article vilifying a prominent Seattle family tied to the Russian mafia. Basically, I’d waltzed right into the middle of a hornet’s nest and started poking the wasps. It was no surprise that I’d been stung.”
Honestly who would dare entering the wolf’s den to take it down?
Now that she was stranded in Montana’s mountains she will ponder on her past actions, her life, her goals. In this it could be a coming of age story or as my friend Shanah hates the abuse of these words rather a personal journey story.
Sabrina and Beau comes from two different worlds: the city girl and the mountain man. Yet they were perfect for each other. If only they could see it.
From the moment this book landed on my Kindle I was immersed in their story. So why not 5 stars? Because I’m being picky sometimes and to reach the next level I would have loved even more angst and suspense.
If you are looking for stories with perfect heroes, strong heroine, majestic settings, romance and some but not too much angst this is the perfect pick.
Added bonus: Devney delivers perfect epilogues (I love reading about characters months or years after) and I got to red more about her past heroes!
Thanks for reading!
