Summary:

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson returns to Truly, Idaho, and to the fate of sexy SEAL Blake Junger

GIMMEE A B-R-E-A-K!

Ex-high school cheerleader Natalie Cooper could once shake her pom-poms with the best of them. But she's paid for all that popularity—her husband's run off with what's left of their money and a twenty-year-old bimbo named Tiffany. Leaving Natalie to manage a photo store and having to see some pictures she, well, really shouldn't.

GIMMEE A S-H-O-T!

Then she comes toe-to-manly chest with Blake Junger. Exiled to a remote cabin in Truly, Idaho, Blake wants nothing to do with anyone. Instead, he's determined to struggle with his demons and win—all on his own. But the last thing he needs is Natalie distracting him with her luscious curves and breaking down the barriers of his heart.

GIMMEE YOUR H-E-A-R-T!

Can be read as a standalone. Returns to Truly, ID and is about the second Junger twin, Blake Junger.

My Review:

Intro: Rachel Gibson is one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. She wrote a hockey romance series. How can I not love her? There have been very few of her books that I did not love and I loved this one.

Characters:

Heroine: Natalie-I thought I wouldn’t like her at first. I never really like reading about the overly-popular, everyone loves them for just showing up kind of people and I thought I wouldn’t like Natalie because that’s exactly what she was. But I was wrong. I really ended up loving her. I felt for her and admired her strength at the same time.

Hero: Blake-I loved him as much as I loved Natalie. He was an eeyore of a hero. A bit grumpy and gruff. He definitely has reason for his less than cheerful demeanor. I did find that he was a really great guy under all of the crankiness.

Chemistry: I loved them. They started out on such a bad foot. And they kept on bickering. I love bickering and banter in my romances. But there was also such emotional depth to their relationship because both had such sad backstories. I also love how Blake interacted with Charlotte, Natalie’s daughter.

Chemistry Rating:


Conclusion: I loved this book so much. I love all of Rachel Gibson’s books. I am a fangirl. It is official. I loved Blake, Natalie and Charlotte. I also loved how Gibson managed to balance emotion with humor. 
Overall Rating


Author Info
Rachel Gibson lives in Idaho with her husband, three kids, two cats and a dog of mysterious origin. She began her fiction career at age 16, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car’s broken glass all about. She told her parents she’d been the victim of a hit and run and they believed her. She’s been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.
