From the first time I saw this cover and read the blurb, I’ve been dying to read Rebekah Weatherspoon’s Haven. It’s a journey that Claudia finds in the gruff arms of a mountain man surrounded by woods and with a healthy dose of BDSM.
Claudia Cade is having a camping trip with her brother when her life changes drastically. Chased up a mountain, she comes upon Shepard Olsen who saves her. She heads back to New York to heal only to realize that maybe what she needs to heal is back up on that mountain. With Shep.
Shep can’t get Claudia off his mind, and he’s as surprised as she is to find her back in his lonely mountain town. Maybe what they both need is the comfort they can find in each others’ bodies. But will it be enough?
I loved how Haven handles the trauma that both of these characters experience. It’s so realistic, and it’s portrayed so well that I was turning pages as fast as I could. Claudia right from the start owns her feelings and her decisions, and it shows a lot of courage on her part to face her fears. I admired how she goes back to the scene of the tragedy. Shep is such a sweetheart too! He’s a nature photographer and has a gentle soul. His needs align so well with Claudia’s and whoa, was this book HOT, HOT, HOT!!!
There’s almost an insta-connection here, but under the circumstances, I understood it. Integrated with the BDSM and killer tension, it all just made sense in their journey. It felt like a necessary ingredient as they meet up again and take that initial step towards finding acceptance in all the bad between them. But with all that bad, can they form something good and lasting?
While this is a darker story, there’s a great dialogue between Claudia and Shep. I enjoyed the humor and camaraderie they had with each other. This book brought the dark and the light, the humor and the tears. This is not to be missed, and I’m eagerly awaiting the next in the Beards & Bondage series.
Claudia literally barges into Shep's isolated life on the run from a killer. She's a fairly sophisticated Norcal gal, he's a grumpy mountain man photographer.
This is opposite attracts meets saviour complex with a tonne of BDSM thrown in. The book has plenty of time jumps in it, which totally made sense when it's two grownups with lives that drag them away from each other. Claudia was MY GIRL in the way she sassed and threw down, whilst maintaining vunerability.
This felt very adult in the way it handled the changing relationship of not just the main characters with each other, but with their relationships with the secondary characters. Not every thing was smooth sailing, real life, past relationships, changing expectations,working through traumas realization of desires, hopes dreams etc all came into play. It was delicious.
TL;DR very good on an emotional level as well as super hot sex scenes.
This is a romance novel, in case you missed that.
This is also a book about trauma and how trauma can bring people together, but like... It's... Y'all, it's been over a week and I still don't have words for this book. I liked it and it has a happy ending, thank God, but I'm not sure it's my favorite. I think I should have started with one of her lighter books and skipped the trauma storyline.
