Synopsis: He’ll guard her body all night long…
Ski instructor Ellie Montgomery hits Vegas during a romance convention to meet the man of her dreams…only, the man of her dreams isn’t the cover model she’s there to see. He’s the hot-as-sin bodyguard who catches her sneaking in the back door of a meet-and-greet, and he seems more than ready to do what it takes to prove he’s twice the man her pretty boy crush could ever be.
Jax Mathis couldn’t resist snagging a date with Ellie, but he didn’t count on the attraction being more than physical. They connect on a level he didn’t think possible—and he can’t run fast enough. She makes him want things he thought he’d never have, and maybe, just maybe, they’re within reach. But to have it, he’ll have to face the one mountain he swore he’d never climb…and with no guarantee she’ll be waiting on the other side.
I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Review: I’m not sure how I feel about this book. It was a bit rocky in the beginning and then found its footing. The characters were likable. The romance between Ellie and Jax was hot and sweet. The individual background stories on the two were a bit far fetched, but it is fiction, so I can get over that. What I can’t get over is the ending. Lord the ending was too much for me. It’s not my favorite book, but the middle third of the book was what kept me going
If you can stretch your imagination a bit and like a spicy, sweet whirlwind insta-love type romance then this is for you.
