Victoria Woodley is done with men. Fresh off a dating nightmare, she flies from her home in Chicago to Scarlet Springs to take part in her best friend’s wedding. Who picks her up at the airport? Eric Hawke. Of course. She made a fool of herself over him last time she was here. He’s cocky, charming, and sexy as sin. But the fact that she’s attracted to him is all the proof she needs that he’s bad news. She would ignore him if she could. But he’s the best man, and she’s the maid of honor. She can’t just tell him to jump in a lake—especially not when her lips are locked with his.

Eric isn’t looking for a relationship. Between running the firehouse and volunteering for the county’s search and rescue team, he has enough on his plate. He doesn’t need to get tangled up with a woman from the big city, especially one whose idea of roughing it is going without designer coffee. Yet from the moment he looks into Victoria’s big brown eyes, the attraction he feels is too strong to deny. Faster than he can imagine, the spark of desire that has smoldered between them since the first day they met will flare into full-blown passion.

But can Eric convince Victoria to set aside her doubts and trust him with her heart before their time together runs out?

So as you can see for this months reading challenge I picked "Land-Sea-Sky". I know a challenge right! So I went through my books and looked for one to fit into it and had nothing until I remembered that I read a book by Pamela Clare that I was going to review soon. 

I knew her Colorado High Country series would be perfect for this challenge, and I was right! 

I've only read two books in this series but I have to tell you that I've enjoyed them both. Such a great idea for a series. I love this group of people. 

I totally fell for Eric. Any guys who's that sweet to his mother is a hero to me. I also loved how he treated the people around him. Now don't get me wrong he's not perfect but who is? 

Now Victoria wasn't always easy to deal with. But then again she has good reasons why. Add what's going on in her life with the fact that when Eric and her met it wasn't a love at first sight moment. Dislike was more like it. 

Finally they got to learn the really people behind the first meeting and things got better. Victoria started to trust Eric and see what a good person he is. 

 I totally enjoyed this story and can't wait to read the next one in the series. If you haven't yet tried this series it's a must. 

If you've read Slow Burn or any other books by Pamela Clare I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡

  1. I like books where the couple don't always like each other right away. Lol

    1. Yeah, it was fun. I can't wait to read the next one in the series.
