    Awesome

    Awesome read. Really connected with the characters in this one. An opposites attraction storyline that worked perfectly. Sabrina Tate has always lived her life by the rules. Being the perfect daughter for her political father, going to the right schools, marrying the right man - well almost! When her groom to be calls off the wedding on the big day, she can't take anymore so she sets off on an Alaskan adventure! Landing at the family lodge of Zak Forrester could turn out to be the best worst thing to ever happen to her!! Their attraction is immediate but knowing she won't be sticking around she can't act on it. Can she?? And why was she so attracted? He's grumpy, gruff, and rugged. Nothing like the men she's dated before. Sometimes though, you have to listen to your heart. This is a great book and I highly recommend it!

    Fun, quick read with great characters

    Opposites attract is such a fun trope and when the California girl meets the rugged Alaskan guy under less than perfect circumstances the stage is set for a great story. This was a fun, quick read that didn’t have a lot of drama or angst, but was well written and had a great cast of quirky characters. Throw in some competitive scrabble, yoga classes, and a cute puppy named bunny, and there was a lot to love in this book! I just loved Zak. He was everything you want in your rugged, Alaskan hero. A bit gruff on the outside, a bit wounded and scarred on the inside, but an all-around solid guy that you would love to bring home to mom. He’s always been the responsible brother, the one driven to make the lodge succeed, and after being hurt in his past he’s turned all of his focus on just that. He also carries a bit of guilt around from his past which also keeps him driven and focused on making sure his family is taken care of. Sabrina wasn’t my favorite heroine, but she did grow on me as the story went on. Fleeing to Alaska after being jilted at the altar may not have been her most shining moment, but I loved the fact that this was the catalyst she needed to really take a look at her life and decide who she was living it for, and then take the steps she needed to make sure she didn’t give up her own dreams. Other than her shamelessly throwing herself at Zak – several times – she really was doing things she needed to find herself. And once she cuts through all the rebound strings and sees that maybe there is something more between her and Zak I really like the person she became. Sabrina and Zak together had that great “opposites attract” tension you would expect. They totally exasperated each other at times, but their attraction to each other was undeniable. They were so much fun together, and when they finally give in to that attraction they were just so right together. Of course the issues from their past threaten to keep them apart, and both have to decide what they want from life and what is important to themselves before they can find happiness with each other. My favorite part of the book was the colorful, quirky characters that make up the town of Gold Creek and the Forrester family. They really added a nice depth to the book and helped set the stage for Sabrina and Zak’s love story. Zak’s family is so important to him and you could feel the love and support they had for one another – something I always love in my books. The residents of the town all had little quirks, but they were loyal to one another and protected each other, making this a great small town story. I’m looking forward to reading about the rest of the Forrester brothers and spending more time in Gold Creek – the Forrester Lodge is definitely a destination for any romance lover! I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for an honest review.

    Fun and sweet

    Both Sabrina and Zak are likable characters and had me rooting for them shortly after they met. A fun and quick romance, with them only spending a few days together before falling in love. It's well written and the setting is perfect. I've always enjoyed romances set in Alaska, there is something about the isolation that seems to add a little more romance to the story. Can't wait for Zak's brothers to find their other halves! 4.5 stars I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

    I really had fun reading this story.

    Received this book via NetGalley for an honest review. Rebecca Thomas' story of opposites attracting was an excellent read. Blindsided in an important moment, Sabrina finds herself questioning her choices. Searching for a new direction she winds up in Alaska. Trying to make a success of his business Zak does not have time to babysit out of place optimist. Pessimist Zak is trying to atone for a tragic event from his past. People from different backgrounds is a common theme in romance literature. Even though that is the case Ms. Thomas manged to create a story with great characters that leaves you feeling like you have just experienced it for the first time. I really had fun reading this story and would recommend it.
