Real estate lawyer Holly Birdsong’s hike in the Rockies takes an unexpected turn when a smokin’-hot stranger tumbles off his bike and into her path. Turns out he’s purchasing the abandoned Lodge at Wild Rose Ridge, and Holly agrees to take him on as a client—despite her family’s traumatic history with the previous owner, who shamelessly abused the town’s goodwill at every turn. But when their professional relationship turns personal, Holly must reconcile the past with her hopes for the future.
Adding the rustic lodge to his portfolio of adventure properties isn’t just a business decision for Bryce Bennett. The rugged mountains also offer a killer setting for his extreme-sports camps for at-risk teens. What’s not in the blueprints is finding a kindred spirit in his irresistible lawyer, even if she seems apprehensive about getting involved in the deal. Bryce’s plan to ease her mind just might work, as long as no one discovers his secret. Yet he can’t stand hiding the truth from the woman who makes him want to build something permanent: a happily ever after.

As always a thank you first goes to Netgalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
Now you all know that I originally started this series because the description in book 1 was that it was about a little town in Colorado the state I happen to live in. But as I got through with the first book I knew that I would need to read book 2 because really I fell in love with these characters. Holly has been in love with the look of the resort at the top of the mountain for years, sadly that resort has been nothing but a sore spot for her and her family since the beginning. So to have someone come in and say that they want to resort it and re-open it isn’t easy for Holly to accept. Bryce has the right intentions when he comes to Thistle Bend and decides to restore the resort, but sadly he lives with the ghosts of others haunting him. He isn’t able to get to the point he wants to until those ghosts are put to rest. Though he falls in love with Holly the effects of his relatives are long lasting.
I give this book 5 restoring kisses….
Happy Reading… Adri
