My rating: Date !!
Elle’s life couldn’t possibly get any more small town than it already is. She was raised in the same home as the two generations before her were, her family owns the iconic downtown cafe, and she’s been dating the pastor’s son since she was allowed to go on her first date at sixteen. Cole’s life couldn’t possibly get any larger. He’s tried. Roaming from town to town for the past three summers as a smokejumper, Cole dreads the thought of putting down roots. The only thing he avoids more than that is settling down with one woman, especially when there are as many willing women as there are trees in the forest he jumps out of planes to save. Elle Montgomery’s life is going one way. And Cole Carson’s is going the opposite. There’s no reason their paths should ever intersect, even in a small town in central Washington. But summer in the Methow Valley has other plans for Elle and Cole. After an awkward run-in at the local swimming hole, Elle tries to keep away from the guy who looks at her like she’s already lying beneath him in bed. She fails. Cole is about as successful at staying away from the girl who seems immune to his charms. As the summer heats up, and tensions between Elle and Cole run high, he begins to realize there’s more he’s attracted to than Elle’s body, and she discovers there’s a lot more to the man that jumps out of planes into raging forest fires than meets the eye.
When i first pick up this book i thought Aaahhh here comes another nicole williams with a good story line but will be an utter disappointment. I personal can say that i do not really enjoy most of nicole williams book i read crash and im not going to lie it was ok. But that the problem here books are just okay so when i picked up this book i expected it to be okay. But it certainly was not it was brilliant and i loved it the
What i loved about the book
- first and foremost i can finally for the first time say that i liked the character. I felt that they were easy to relate to, realistic and certainly acted there age. In this book i felt like Nicole had really grasped the new adult seen and had made her characters more mature and defiantly more STEAMY (which brings me to point number
- I can certainly say that this book scaled top notch on my steamy factor and at time it was so hot that i had to open up a window because i feared that any second i will light into flames and sweet Cole will have to save me. Who am i kidding if Cole saved me i would die but nt from the flames but being so close to his sweet sexy body.
- One word ...... Four Letter ...... COLE !!!!!! the bad boy act that de-virginezes the sweet small time good girl is getting way to old but with cole I loved it he was so such a realistic character.
I likedNo correction I loved the character of Ellie. I felt she was a strong character who had finally broken from her shell. We never find out how old Ellie is but i can sort of guess that she is her late teen (17 18ish). But even then she still acted highly mature and was not mopey and annoying she took responsibility for her action and that is why i truly related with her character
I know through out this review all i have done is praise this book but here is one flaw i would like to point out ***WARNING DO NOT READ THIS BIT IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE STORY IT CONTAIN WHO ELLIE CHOOSES!!!*** WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO LOGAN!!!!!! I felt like the issue of Logan was not dealt with probably and although i was so routing for Cole to get the girl I also really wanted Logan to get her too. I he was an amazing character and had so much to offer o felt like if Ellie had waited he too could have broken out of his shell and become greater than what was expected of him. And in certain points in the story we do she him breaking out form that shell but with him being the pastor son so much was expected from he so it just took longer for him to break free than it would be for Ellie. I think like Logan was not done justice in this book but that is what sequel are for Make Nicole write a 2nd story about Logan That would be such an amazing story and it would be a success because there will be no other book like it (well know that i know of) it would be so good to explore Logan state of mind after the Love of his Life cheating it would just be soo Amazing. SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE nicole write another story about Logan and then you will official become my new favorite writer!!!!!
