What happens in Aspen is definitely not staying in Aspen . . .
A girls’ trip to Aspen was exactly what Shay needed to forget about her toxic ex-boyfriend. She’s got her girls, pristine slopes for skiing, and hot guys everywhere. Of course, her epic self-rediscovery goes completely to hell when a wild (and deliciously hot) skier knocks Shay on her ass . . . and war is declared.
Kolton doesn’t know what it is about Shay that makes him lose it. Not just his cool—although she does have an unholy gift for that—but his restraint. When anger gives way to explosive chemistry, they’re both shaken with the intensity of it. But somewhere between lust and hate, Kolton and Shay realize they could have something real . . . if they don’t kill each other first.
A small-town girl at heart, Kelly Siskind moved
from the city to open a cheese shopwith her husband in Northern
Ontario. When she’s not neck deep in cheese or out hiking, you can find her,
notepad in hand, scribbling down one of the many plot bunnies bouncing around
in her head.
She laughs at her own jokes and has been known to
eat her feelings—Gummy Bears heal all. She’s also an incurable romantic,
devouring romance novels into the wee hours of the morning.
This is an extremely well written and touching love story involving two people who’ve been through difficult times that find something worth fighting for in each other and I really enjoyed reading this! Shay is on a ski vacation with her two best friends trying desperately to get over her recent failed relationship of five years with a jerk who constantly made her feel as if she wasn’t good enough. She’s decided never to allow herself to become lost in another man ever again and is on the long overdue path of rediscovering herself. What isn’t in her plans however, is careening directly into the path of another skier that immediately sets her on fire and gets under her skin. Kolton is on a ski trip with his buds and is just trying to have a minute of peace and quiet while working out his frustrations on the slopes. Then out of nowhere comes this feisty woman with a sassy mouth that drives him literally freaking crazy and he wants her like he’s never wanted any woman before. I loved everything about this book and felt that Kolton and Shay were perfect for each other because they had the ability to understand each other on a deeper level thanks to everything they’ve been through in the past. Their past hurts are both a blessing and a curse however, since they’re preventing these two from being able to move beyond the things that’ve happened in the past and allow themselves to give their relationship a real chance.
I wanted nothing more than for Kolton and Shay to be able to finally leave the past where it belongs and to really give their relationship a chance and with all of the back and forth between the two of them I wasn’t sure how this was going to work out in the end. There are numerous obstacles standing in the way of this relationship, but the largest one of all is Kolton and Shay themselves standing in the way of their own happiness, due to misplaced fear of taking a chance on each other. Everyone brings baggage to a new relationship, but this couple has much more than most and it’s going to take both of them being willing to let it go in order for them to be happy together. This is a beautiful love story that I very much enjoyed reading and I highly recommend reading this to anyone. I look forward to reading much more from this author and can’t wait to read Shay’s best friend Lily’s story that’s coming up next!
