Back Cover Blurb:

Roommates with benefits. A temporary arrangement between two people with time on their hands. Who could possibly get hurt?

“Get your Zip On” – That’s Tucker Montgomery‘s slogan for the new zip line he’s building near Marietta, Montana. But before Tucker can get the first pole in the ground, he suffers an injury that could cost him everything, until help arrives in a surprising–but gorgeous–package: Amanda Heller. They’ll share her grandmother’s guesthouse while he supervises the old Victorian’s restoration… all with the added benefit of exploring a sizzling mutual attraction.

Amanda Heller knows her exile to Montana is her family’s excuse to spare them the embarrassing fallout from her very public break-up with her ex-boss’s son that left her jobless and living in her parent’s Manhattan home. But then Amanda strikes a bargain with injured, sexy businessman Tucker Montgomery, who needs a place to stay while recovering. A hot summer fling seems just the thing for Amanda and Tucker, something to enjoy for a month or two tops. Most certainly not long enough to fall in love…

My Review:

Salonen creates a unique backdrop for her latest Big Sky Mavericks novel. She sets the scene well, allowing me to picture all of the elements. Each aspect is laid out in a manner that I felt as if I were there. The story that Salonen creates is both emotional and entertaining. I appreciated seeing the different lives intertwine and the various different familial units.

I loved the way that the different parts of Tucker’s life came together. It made for a very intriguing hero to this story. It took me quite a while to connect with Amanda. She was just so uppity. That said, the peek into her past, family situation, and how she got where she is now was an eye opener for me. I found that Amanda’s parents were key players in the novel, yet from a distance. Her father’s wished ruled the day all too often as Amanda tried to make amends for something that should never have been an issue.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Salonen’s writing and this novel was enjoyable, but it just didn’t quite do it for me. Although I had fun reading the novel I couldn’t fully get into it.
