When people ask for ideas on what to read, this book is now my #1 recommendation!

Althea, a young widow, has determined she will never find love again. Her friends and family are the only ones she allows close after the loss of her husband shattered her heart.

Griffen, a man running from the demons of his past, trying only to live in the present, finds himself back in his hometown, much to his displeasure.

How can two weary, emotionally scarred people learn to move beyond their past and grab hold of the happiness the other can bring them? While this book deals with heavy emotions, it’s also full of hope and laughter. The relationship between Althea and her two best friends is one of the top supporting character plots I have read in a romance book, ever. There are no superfluous characters in this book; each one is part of the story and holds their own. Each one is relatable, allowing me to immerse myself and get lost in the story.

There is sex in this book. Great, super-hot, makes you swoon sex. It’s not gratuitous, and it only adds to the story, building on the relationship between Griffen and Althea. And Griffen…oh my…what a beautiful, vulnerable, sexy character he is; I love Griffen! The strong, possessive and steadfast emotions he feels for Althea make him all that I look for and love in a character.

Three Rivers made me feel like I was in a river, in rapids, being carried away by the current of emotions the author expertly guided with her amazing writing. And what a ride it was! I can’t recommend this book enough, and it will definitely be a future re-read 

Tragic strikes Althea Taylor. She is left with something beautiful, but at the same time heartache for what she has lost. Her two best friends try to get her back in the land of the living. Brey and Jenna decide she has to get back out there. When she meets Griffen Tate it's only for one night, and she'll never see him again. The night they spend is intense. They have some kind of connection.

Althea and Griffen see each other again they can't believe it. They're both dumbstruck. She's not sure what to do. How can this be happening? When she finds how it's all related confused doesn't being to cover it.
When Griffen comes across something of Jack's he isn't sure of what to do. He turns to his good friend Trey, and what they find out is not good. It might put Althea in danger without more digging he can't tell her.

As things go on Althea and Griffen grow more fond of each other. He wants to be there, protect her if she needs it. The more and more he finds out it just builds his worry. The moments of true openings of there hearts and moments of epic passion are beyond amazing. It's has if two souls have found each other. She is so scared. Can she let somone else into her heart? Griffen has never belonged to anyone but he wants to take a chance. He's afraid she won't give them a chance. They both understand loss so maybe together they can help each other.

One of my favorite lines after Althea and Griffen leave the bar-
Is our girl safe with you?
You aren't a serial killer are you?
Don't lie to me, I can sniff out a liar."
"No, She's completely safe with me."
"Hmm, that is what a serial killer would say, but you seem honest. Here, let me take you picture. If anything happens to
her-you're toast," Aubrey snapped a shot, looked at and said, "hmm, can't see you butt in this one. I'm gonna need you to stand up and turn around.

I was given the opportunity to read this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review and let me tell you, I LOVED this book. When tragedy strikes, how do you move on? In a strange city, with no friends living nearby, how do you continue to wake up and go on as if you aren't the broken and fragile person you feel like inside? Well, super hot sex with a stranger is one way! Years after Althea's heart is shattered she is finally ready to take some baby steps into the kiddie pool of romance. Can she let herself go long enough to get lost in some super steamy sex with a stranger? She won't have to worry about painful attachments or a messy romance if she only spends the one night. Right? Get some and move on. Yeah, right...

The way Chloe treats the 3 rivers as if it was another character in the book was beautiful. I enjoyed that the city of Pittsburgh played as much of a part in this story as some of the smaller characters in this novel. As someone that has looked over a picture of Pittsburgh at night hanging in the hall of my parents home, I could almost see these two lovers stealing one night to themselves.

I'm excited to see where Chloe takes the next installment of this series. It's hard to believe that this is the author's first work as the story, editing and overall feel of the book is s that of a seasoned author. Great job!

I purchased Three Rivers, read it cover to cover in one afternoon and it is beautifully written. The main character, Althea "Tea," is a mom and woman with two amazing friends who help her find her way back to living after a tragedy in the beginning of the book. Then there is Griffen, who is nothing short of HOT, who comes along. There is instant attraction for these two, and the sex scenes are super hot and steamy! The characters are so real. There are couple plot twists that keep you on the edge to see what will happen next. I love the way the story unfolds, including the unexpected twists. It is such a beautiful story, and I cannot wait for City of Champions!
