Maggie Washington is used to relying on herself. Growing up in Iowa, her wild curls and parents who dumped her on her grandmother made it so she’s never fit in. Skeptical of other people’s motives, she’s always been the fling or the friend. Looking to define her life after college, she’s thrilled when she scores a choice summer job working in Yosemite National Park restoring habitat.
Court Thompson is a gorgeous (and bearded) forest ranger with a love-em and leave-em reputation. When he shows interest in her, she’s torn. Even though she’s flattered by his attention, she doubts his sincerity—and her ability to get out of the friend-zone.
Will Court be able to coax Maggie into trusting him that he’s for real? Or after the summer of s’mores and skinny dipping, will he let her down like everybody else?
Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement (that’s what editors are for!). Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
Maggie graduated college and is starting a summer job restoring meadows at Yosemite National Park. She like many college graduates has no idea what she wants to do next. And that scares her.
Maggie is looking for her future to jump out and hit her because it's the only way she will figure it out. With a new band of friends and a smoking hot ranger, Maggie is trying to figure it out.
But a little encounter with the "Ranger with the most," has Maggie trying to fight with herself. Should she or not? Fling or friend? Definitely smaller question on the scale of life altering, but somehow more poignant for Maggie.
Lumbersexual is fun, sexy, and sweet. I really enjoy Leslie's writing and this was no exception. I only have one complaint- it's a short read. I want more. Oh, and Leslie, maybe consider doing an author weekend tour of the park, I would do it.
Sexy, sweet, tattooed ranger with bedroom eyes- sign me up for the tour.
