I was sucked into the story and the mountain setting. I've had a soft spot for mountain men since I read Catherine Marshall's CHRISTY as a teenager. This love story was just like that, except added to the story of city girl and damaged mountain man was a bit of mystery and sex.
Overall it was a very fun read that I highly recommend.
It was not nearly as sexually explicit as I'd expected. The cover kind of gives the illusion that it's going to be sexier than it is. While there really isn't much sexual content, the sexual chemistry between Ina and Adam was off the charts. It's rare to find a couple who seem to be meant to be. When they do have sex, it's well done and sexy.
I loved Adam's character. He was strong and sexy. There's something so intriguing about the dangerous, mysterious mountain man. He's protective and romantic. His backstory was realistic and believable.
Ina was a strong character, as well. Even though she was scared and thought she was utterly alone, she embraced said fear and took her future into her own hands. Adam helped her in so many ways and she really opened herself up to being her own person.
The escaped convict plot line was well done, as well. As soon as it started, I rolled my eyes, thinking that it'd be cliche. It wasn't too scary and it seemed pretty realistic to me. It didn't overtake the remaining plot lines in the book. The end was solved well.
I loved this book and I look forward to future reads from Ever McCormick.
I was never able to really connect with Ina. She's a 23-year old college grad with a bright future ahead of her. And yet, because of the "mistake" she made her senior year (not sure how it was a mistake by any definition of the word), she lacks any motivation and direction. Also, she's kind of rude. When she isn't following the rules or getting called out on not-entirely-appropriate behavior, her response is to fling insults. The recipient of these spurts of misplaced anger is Adam, the owner of the cabins on this remote mountain. Now, Adam is super sexy, or so we're told. But I honestly had a hard time picturing that. Sure, he has muscles that would make any girl swoon, but a messy beard that is so unkempt that you can't even tell if he's smiling or not? Does he wash it? Is there food stuck in this beard of his? Don't get me wrong, I think guys with beards can be sexy. But when they're described as being messy, wild, and unkempt, my brain just can't reconcile the two. And Adam rants and whines and cries a little too much for my liking, especially when it comes to big, sexy mountain men. And yet these two seem to develop an instant attraction. I was never able to feel the chemistry, the whole relationship felt contrived. I just couldn't get behind it.
The story moves slowly, even though the book itself is a quick read. The reasons for both Ina and Adam fleeing to the mountain and/or their general distrust of people left much to be desired. Ina more so than Adam; he has suffered real heartache in his past. Even then, I feel as though his actions in the present are an overreaction. And all the while, there's a man lurking in the shadows, watching from afar, and somebody (perhaps the same man?) is stealing things. Call the police? Nope. Just ignore it and it will go away. Ina and Adam ignore it so well, that I even forgot about the aforementioned mystery. And then finally at 88% in (88%!), we get some excitement. Unfortunately, this also feels a bit forced and as if it was added as an afterthought. Overall, the plot drags, the characters are dull, and I just couldn't get lost in the story.
However, I think the idea behind the story was good, even if the execution wasn't. And for that reason I will check out another book by Ever McCormick.

Adam has secrets of his owns. He lives away from everyone and has everything he needs delivered. He shops at amazon for everything.
The story is good but I don't see much real emotions from Ina. She's a confused young woman who doesn't really know what she wants. She's fresh out of college and can't seem to find a job anywhere.
Adam is a strong character. He's what every woman would want, he's sweet, kind, wants to help and take care of Ina. He wants to help her get pass what she went through.
It's not a bad story. There's a bit of mystery that keeps you guessing. I think if Ina's character had been stronger or displayed some real emotion it would've been better.
For a debut story it's good. The plot is good. I would recommend it.
