Braden Montgomery is certain about three things: one, luck is for suckers; two, time spent outdoors is what keeps him sane; and, three, when it comes to sharing his bed, there’s only one female he’s willing to put up with—his Chesapeake Bay retriever, Charley. Braden’s constructed his life on these beliefs, and he’s quite content with the status quo.
But when a moment of bad luck lands Braden toe-to-toe with a blonde bombshell with her own television show, his stubbornly structured reality begins to unravel.
As for Amber Regan, her brand has been built on camo, cut-offs, and cleavage. With her own hunting show on the foremost sports channel and enough social media followers to garner her plenty of endorsement deals, Amber’s come a long way from the tomboy in a small Texas town she once was. Unfortunately, ratings are down and her contract for next season is in limbo, so she’s in desperate need of a reboot to save her show—and filming a rough and tough archery elk hunt in Colorado might be the way to do just that. Too bad the local game warden grunts more than he speaks, seems determined to despise her—and makes her heart race in all the most inconvenient ways.
|Brandon Montgomery is a game warden in Colorado and after arguing against drawing for straws as to see who gets to take Amber Regan around. She is a female hunter with her own show, and it is not that he dislikes her, he dislikes all hunting shows. She of course shows up in full pink camo and after they have a discussion over google maps and his eyes, as he was in an area that she wanted to go and there was no water. After their talk, they spend the next 4 hours hiking and she spends it looking at his backside wondering if he is ever going to stop or actually take a deep breath. When they finally make it to the top his fantastic personality appears once again when he takes the granola bar she is eating out of her hand and tosses it. Telling her she should be eating a candy bar instead. Letting him know about endorsements he could care less he gives her something more healthy and homemade. Now slowly a friendship. They both become intrigued by the other person and though he does not allow himself to get close to anyone, which is explained in the story she slowly breaks down his walls. She really makes progress when she surprises him and shows up in town unannounced. This is really when the story takes a good turn and you find out more about each character. About both of their pasts and their fears. By the time you get to the end you are surprised by the change in both but it is for the best. Read this wonderful story about two people finding themselves before love. A very good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com|
