Publication date: May 27th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
A sassy new romance from a USA Today Bestselling Author…
After moving cross-country yet again, Hannah Roberts wants to put down roots in Colorado. She’s sunk her life savings into a share of Bloom Yoga Studio, but the studio is losing money, and fast. The building is undergoing a messy, noisy renovation–and the hot carpenter in charge is distracting her yoga students in more ways than one. If Hannah can’t talk the hard-bodied builder out of his power tools, she might as well kiss her dreams goodbye.
When Jake Marshall returned from Afghanistan, he brought back an injured knee and a lot of bad memories. He just wants to finish this renovation, rehab his knee, and head for Alaska to leave it all behind. A sexy yoga teacher doesn’t fit into his plans. But when Hannah offers him private sessions in exchange for quiet hours—he’s all in. He doesn’t expect that while she’s healing his knee, Hannah will poke at all his hidden wounds…and come dangerously close to breaking open his heart.
This book was such an enjoyable read.
The back and forth between Jake and Hannah was a real delight and practically danced off the pages. From Hannah’s struggles with her own self worth to Jake’s reluctance to comment to anything permanent, this relationship story could have been too frustrating to deal with. However, I’m happy to report that the author has balanced this beautifully.
What she has done is produced a story which has you rooting for this couple to find each other, and she has done so with humour and emotional hooks that weave seamlessly together.
I’m interested to see what the rest of the series brings.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
Leigh LaValle is a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary and historical romance. She lives in Montana with her family. When she is not chasing kids, bemoaning the laundry, or carving out time to do yoga, she is sneaking away to write. She would rather read than sleep, and cannot imagine a better job than writing romance. She is also a certified yoga teacher, but is not nearly as flexible as she once was.
