After a slew of teasers leading up to the release of Remy Blake's latest story "Timber", I was excited to read about Lucy - whose older sister Avery and partner Wes were the focus of "Clipped" - and the famous lumberjack Magnus Andersen. And it's safe to say I was not disappointed.
Lucy is a single mum to five year old Jeremiah and hasn't put herself first in years. Magnus is a local celebrity thanks to winning the previous year's Lumberjack competition and now being a fitness model and the face of dating app Timber (*cough* Tinder anyone *cough* lol). And when Lucy and Magnus start chatting the sparks start flying. Despite Lucy's insistence that anything with Magnus can only be "just sex" - because she doesn't have time for anything more - it's clear that Magnus isn't going to accept a purely physical relationship when Lucy makes him feel more than he has for a long time.
"When you know what you’re missing how do you push it out of your mind?"
It's Magnus' vulnerability and the fact he doesn't fit the cocky fitness model persona that makes him so endearing. I fell in love with Magnus as I read along with his navigation of a new (and initially unwanted) relationship with Lucy. And sorry Wes, I'm definitely #TeamMagnusForever
Jacob Chance and Marley Valentine (the Remy and Blake in Remy Blake) yet again give us a fast paced novella that is equal parts steamy and romantic. This writing duo work so incredibly well together and I'm busting to read anything and everything else they release.
