Mountain Desire by Vanessa Vale was a fast paced read for me…basically I read it in one sitting. The characters Samantha, Max and Hardin flow together quite well and there is definitely a lot of passion in this book!
Samantha is a child prodigy, working as a surgeon and not really having any interpersonal skills she mistakes Max for a patient and hilarious thing happen. From there she is thrown into a world-wind romance with Max and his best friend Hardin (who certainly looks like a lumberjack in my mind), but not everything is smooth sailing. Not only is Samantha a virgin, but she is also being targeted by someone who wants to hurt her, but her men aren’t going to let anything happen!
This was a fast paced read which came to a conclusion pretty quickly. I would have liked to have read more about the characters building a relationship as they got together/stayed together really quickly and didn’t seem to know much about each other. Overall, scenes between characters were a hot but I still felt like I was left wanting more but that’s good in a way as it makes me want to read more by this author. There is a little bit of suspense which keeps you moving along with the book and I liked that Sam was geeky and awkward throughout the whole novel and both Max and Hardin found it delightful. A good quick, steamy read.
ARC received for a fair, honest and sometimes long review 😊
When Dr. Samantha Smyth confuses the town's sexy mechanic for a patient, she gets a lesson she'll never forget...
Being a child genius might have made Sam a doctor by twenty-two, but she's learned nothing about men. Her world is scalpels and scrubs, not silk and seduction. Sam is used to receiving attention for her brain, not her body, but when Mac and Hardin find out she needs tutoring between the sheets, they volunteer for the job. They're diligent in their task, ensuring she's an expert in pleasure... with them. Only them.
Mac knows he is nothing the beautiful doctor deserves. He works with his hands. He's rough around the edges, tattooed and older, but he wants her anyway. So does his best friend, Hardin. They've spent years searching for a woman they can claim together. One taste of Sam and it's not just passion they feel for their woman. It's protectiveness. Possession.
When they discover Sam might be targeted by a murderer on the loose, they won't let anything take her away. And their protective instinct reaches a new level when Hardin discovers he might just be related to the killer.
