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.

 Grace Review
This story embraces the idea that opposites attract and explores the willingness to change oneself for love.

Sabrina MacKenzie and Beau Holt are from two different worlds.
Sabrina is a city girl to the core.
She loves her adopted home of Seattle and can’t imagine a life outside of it.
While she loves her family, she moved far from them and has maintained little communication over the years.
She’s also a trouble magnet, making decisions that risk the life of herself and those close to her.

Beau is the definition of a Mountain Man.
He’s rugged and doesn’t need much in the way of accommodations to be happy.
He loves his family and wants to be surrounded by them.
He’s a true savior, willing to put his own life on the line to help others.

As an investigative reporter, Sabrina ends up bringing trouble with her to the small town of Prescott. (While some of this backstory is covered in the previous book in this series, The Lucky Heart, there is enough information in this book that you wouldn’t be lost without having read that.) To protect her, Beau takes her to a remote outpost while the FBI closes in on the targets of her story.

I’m not a huge nature person, so I could totally relate to Sabrina’s reaction to this outpost. And at the same time, I have to give her props for making the most of things and not complaining too much.

Despite being opposites on paper, it is clear early on that Sabrina and Beau are attracted to one another. There’s a bit of sexual tension, and some stupidity on Sabrina’s part, but eventually the two can’t seem to fight their attraction anymore and it’s game on! The struggle becomes what to do beyond the outpost.

I didn’t want her for right now. I wanted her for always.
I wanted what I’d never have.

There are two things that seems to be a formula for this author.
First, the impending physical threat to the heroine. And with Sabrina’s story, you just know where that threat will come from, just not when.
Second, the lack of communication between the H and h about the future. Sabrina and Beau each have their hopes for where their future could lead, but neither has the balls to express those hopes or find a way to make things work. So that was one thing that frustrated me in this story. However, the author does make up for this on how the two resolve their issues. Too sweet!

While each book in this series can be treated as a standalone, I love the series this author has built. I’ve grown connected to all the characters in this small town and love to see how their lives change over the years. Now we just need Maisy’s story . . . and happy dance, that book is next (The Bitterroot Inn).
