A grouchy mountaineer, a Hollywood starlet
And miles of untamed wilderness…
What could possibly go wrong?
Former Hollywood darling River Lane’s acting career is tanking fast. Determined to start fresh behind the camera, she agrees to film a documentary about the picturesque small town of Moose Springs, Alaska. The assignment should have been easy, but the quirky locals want nothing to do with River. Well, too bad: River’s going to make this film and prove herself, no matter what it takes.
Or what (literal) mountain she has to climb.
Easton Lockett may be a gentle giant, but he knows a thing or two about survival. If he can keep everyone in line, he should be able to get River and her crew up and down Mount Veil in one piece. Turns out that’s a big if. The wildlife’s wilder than usual, the camera crew’s determined to wander off a cliff, and the gorgeous actress is fearless. Falling for River only makes Easton’s job tougher, but there’s only so long he can hold out against her brilliant smile. When bad weather strikes, putting everyone at risk, it’ll take all of Easton’s skill to get them back home safely…and convince River she should stay in his arms for good.

This book was good, but there were definitely some things lacking for me (mostly in the romance department). But, I enjoyed most of this book.
I really liked the characters in this book, but especially one of the main characters, River. She was bold and tough and stood up for what she believed in (even if she was wrong). She definitely had a strong, stubborn streak in her, but that just made things that much more interesting. I also really loved the constant-ness and support that came with Easton. I didn’t expect him to be so soft and a little shy. It was a fun contrast to River’s personality.
The plot in and of itself was fun and exciting. I felt like the balance between the time spent in Moose Springs and the time spent climbing Mount Veil was pretty good. I didn’t get bored and feel like anything was overdone which was nice.
The romance was lacking in my opinion. From the very beginning, the characters recognize that they like each other (which is fine), and they tell each other that they’re attracted to each other (which…okay. fine. I can live with it.), but then there’s no romantic tension. They just like each other and kiss and support each other and…that’s… it? There was a small conflict in the relationship at the end, but even that was weak. There was just so much that could have been done with their relationship but wasn’t. sigh That was the most disappointing part for me.
Overall, while there were some things lacking, I enjoyed reading this one. I really want to go back and read the other two books in this series now that I’ve gotten a taste of the other characters and relationships.
