Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series Book 1) by Phoebe Alexander is an erotic tale where the female lead is sexual liberal and polyamorous and our unsuspecting military man is younger and conservative. It is an unlikely pairing but somehow it works and he is introduced to a lifestyle he never knew existed. Sarah knows what she wants but the traditionalist catholic boy James wants his cake and eat it too. Sometimes I wanted to sit Sarah down and give her a good talking to and hug James due to his confusion and uncertainty and I absolutely cracked up laughing at Sarah’s best friend and her antics. It is a very emotive story and touches on subjects that others may find taboo but Phoebe is as always very respectful in the genre that she writes.
Mountains Wanted is the first book in the Mountains Trilogy by Phoebe Alexander. It is a though provoking, wonderfully written, erotic contemporary romance. This is the second time I have read this book, and have enjoyed it just as much as the first time. It is really well written, intriguing, passionate, erotic, funny, emotional, educational and entertaining. And once again, I was drawn into the story, investing in these characters and the outcome of it all. This is a great start to a wonderful series, and while this book doesn’t have a cliff-hanger, as such, it does continue into the next book. Thank you Ms. Alexander!
This novel is amazing. The characters have depth and personality, feelings and desires which reach out of the page to grip the reader. I love the military aspects as well as the friendships that form around the characters. The main characters have great chemistry and really set each other off nicely, while being funny, complex, mature and well rounded characters. The settings were very vividly descriptive, making it easy to imagine myself there with them. The steaminess was just perfect, not over the top or too subtle, just right. The connection between the two characters was also incredible, and that they were able to find the happy ending that they deserved. I can't wait to read the next one. I highly recommend this to anyone that loves a steamy romance.
