Grizz knew that Brooklyn was too good for him. He had proven that every time he left her because he didn’t want to screw up her life any more than he already had. They had been through a lifetime together already, and now, she was standing on the porch to his cabin, asking him for help. He’d give it because it was Brooklyn, but then, he knew she’d walk away again, and that would gut him. Brooklyn’s life was in the city now and he knew she’d go back when the danger passed. He’d lose her again and there was no way that his heart would be able to take it.
Brooklyn was torn between two worlds—her love for NYC and her love for Grizz, her grumpy mountain man. They had been through so much together, even the loss of a baby, but she still hoped he’d find his way back to her. It felt like a lifetime ago that he had left the city to move up to his cabin in the Catskills, taking her heart with him. He’d show up in NYC now and again, to beg her to come live with him up on his mountain, but that wasn’t a move she was ready to make. She wouldn’t give up her job; she loved being a lawyer, even if it did put her in danger sometimes. When she found herself in trouble, her only thought was to get to Grizz. She knew that he’d protect her, even if it meant showing up to the one place she swore she’d never step foot again—his cabin.
Review by Twinsie Angie’
I purchased this book.
I am a super fan of the 2nd chance story/opposites attract. Grizz and Brooklyn were college sweethearts who had a falling out…not a falling out of love so much as changes in life directions.
Grizz hasn’t stopped trying to win Brooklyn back but she is very driven. She has goals for her career and that is her priority now. When some bad stuff happens, she runs to the only man who can keep her body safe from harm…but maybe not her heart.
Grizz and Brooklyn are stuck in a confined space for awhile and start to sort out their issues because the love is so strong. They both want to make it work this time, but both need to compromise to make it happen.
I loved seeing a strong female character like Brooklyn. She knows what she wants and has the drive to fulfill it. But I also love her realizing she can have her career and the man she loves at the same time. Grizz is just such a grumpy man. LOL I loved him. He is aggressive with his pursuit of Brooklyn which made my heart love him so much. I think each time she said no to him, made him even the more determined to have her back!!
