Read this 2 times and I enjoyed it just as much the second time around. I know there are some mixed reviews about Deke & Jussy, but I get all the right feels about this couple and when I finished the book I had a huge smile on my face, so safe to say it works for me.
Deke is a mountain of an alpha man who lives his life simply, doesn't own a lot of personal possessions & is a nomad for much of the year.
Jussy has almost everything and I love how at the start of the book she realises that having so much means nothing if you don't have the simple basics of life, the love, friendship & loyalty of a partner. She is seeking these necessities of life and it's a beautiful thing and magic how you can look across a room and feel connected to someone (even if he's not looking at you haha) and just know & this happens to Jussy. It takes a while for Jussy to get her Deke and I just loved the journey they go on to get to the good.
We see so many Colorado Mountain characters in this book, they are a tight group of friends and I adore them all. Another bonus is that we see at least two characters from The Burg and other Rock Chick characters are spoken of too, it gives me a buzz when KA does these crossovers. To have Deke standing next to Joe Callahan just makes my head explode LOL it's like the universe is not big enough to have them both in such close proximity!
I love getting lost in the day to day normalcy of a lot of KA's books, so the drywall renovations, prime rib sandwiches & Steph's chicken just does it for me. Jussy is persistent, which is a bonus, because it takes a bit to prove to Deke she is not a repeat of his past. Once Deke is on board, you could not get a more devoted, gorgeous hunk of a man, so yeah, I've got lots of love for this book.
