    OK read

    Hard one for me to review so I'm going to do a good/not so good list. Good - writing is clear, concise, and informational. Character development is strong. I felt like I knew Kal and Rosemary very well. A unique storyline made it very interesting.. Not so good for me- Pace of the story was very slow leaving way too much time for my mind to wonder rather than grabbing and holding my attention. Information overload! While it was nice to have some background on Kal I learned more about extreme mountain climbing than I ever wanted to know. For a romance I found that part of the story lacking. So overall this is a very well done book and if you are interested in summit climbing, you'll probably really enjoy it. If you're looking for a strong romance this may not be for you.

    Completely Wonderful Romance!

    An unlikely romance between a Sherpa immigrant and a London socialite who meet while attempting to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, both of them having “lost their way” in life and trying to find their paths again. Despite their differences they love being with each other but keep making mistakes, blundering through them, trying to reach the happiness that keeps eluding them…until they stop trying so hard and just accept and enjoy their differences and let each other BE…and complete each other. Ms. Knox once again brings her characters through their humanness and frailties in a way that makes readers feel a part of the story, feel the uncomfortableness …and exhilaration.

    A different kind of romance

    This is a different kind of romance for me. It is extremely intense not only in the relationship between Kal and Rosemary but intense in their life struggle. They are both searching for who they are, what they are meant to be and what to do with their futures. Rosemary was lost in her marriage. She is now determined to climb the Seven Summits and write about her adventures. It’s her plan. She counts every step, every breath, every heartbeat. When a natural disaster diverts her plan, the struggle to find herself returns with a vengeance. Kal has failed at too many things in life. He had plans. He had aspirations. Not only has he failed those around him, he has failed himself. Resenting those that use Mount Everest as a way to feed their megalomania he struggles to protect the mountain. And again he has failed. When these two connect there is obvious chemistry but their lives will never sync. He cannot embrace the climber and she has set her sights on reaching the summit. This book has a lot of information about Everest, the regions around it, the Nepalese people and the effects tourism and teams of climbers have on them. While much of that was interesting, I found myself skimming through some of it. Nevertheless, I found myself really enjoying this couple’s story through much of the book. However, when it got closer to the end I just felt like it lost some of its spark and life. It dragged and I realized I needed something to alleviate the heaviness of it all. There is much here in regards to the empowerment of women. I know it’s not politically correct, especially being a woman, but I felt like it was too much. And that’s where this was a different kind of romance for me. The message here was about being true to yourself, standing tall as a woman, remaining strong in the face of adversity. I didn’t mind the message. I just wanted a little more romance to go with it. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley Dual POV Safe No apparent triggers

    Great, emotional read!

    Wow was this story emotional! I just could not put it down. In book 2 of the New York series, Madly, we met Rosemary Chamberlain, mom to Beatrice and ex-wife to Winston. Now Rosemary is back for her own story. After Rosemary divorced Winston so she could "find" herself again, she joined a group of other British women to climb the Seven Summits - the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. The first one she was tackling was Everest. While on Everest, an avalanche hits and Rosemary is rescued by one of the guides, Kalden Beckett....who happens to be very handsome and the son of the most famous female climber, Yangchen Beckett. After the emotional rescue, Rosemary ends up spending the night with Kal and is thrown for a loop. Rosemary has never felt such a strong connection to someone before. The two of them travel together to New York from Nepal and start to quickly have feelings for each other. Rosemary is conflicted between wanting to be with Kal and wanting to find herself. Just when Rosemary thinks she has her life figured out, everything changes. Rosemary was a determined character. She knew what she wanted, but didn't truly understand what that really was. Kal didn't really know what he wanted, but because of things from his past, he tended to just ignore everything. Together they both were able to finally figure out what they each really wanted. I loved how Kal was younger than Rosemary...it added a little something to the story. I also really enjoyed the path these two went on to get to their happy ending, but boy was it really emotional! If you cry easy, have tissues close at hand toward the end of the book! Overall, this was a great, emotional read!

    Unexpected & Enjoyable Romance

    If you are looking for a fluffy romance that is simple and sweet you might want to pass this book up for another time. I found Completely unexpected but refreshing as the book did not just explore a simple romance between perfect people. This is a book about societies expectations for us, our families expectations for us, and our own expectations about how our lives should be lived. Or rather, how stifling and limiting expectations are to us when we cannot move past these expectations. (I think I might be babbling, so moving on.) Our heroine Rosemary and our hero Kal, are both searching for direction and meaning in their lives. Rosemary has convinced herself that a meaningful life can be found by completing a number of difficult climbs and Kal is unsure of how to live his life after some very difficult times have shaken his view of the world and of where he fits within it. I liked that Rosemary and Kal were from different socio-economic backgrounds, ethic backgrounds with a small age gap thrown in as well. They didn't really fit from the outside but rather from who they were as human beings. The book is a little meandering do some degree, and I think it helps a lot if you have read the other two books in the series. I would recommend this book to anyone who is up for a little bit of unexpected thinking in a romance. I would highly recommend Knox's New York series as well. I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review.
