Heart of the Adirondacks Series
Reeling from a sudden breakup, Casey Webb leaves Brooklyn, drives north and settles in a sleepy mountain town in upstate New York. She’s convinced she’s happy
being alone—until she reads the acknowledgments in her ex-boyfriend’s hit debut novel, thanking his new girlfriend “above all”.
Good thing Ben Mailer is in town. The hot, young Brooklyn-bound chef offers the perfect distraction,
and soon Casey is having the best sex of her life—on a mountain, in the lake, all over her cozy cabin. But as their weekend fling turns into something more, the demands of Ben’s family and budding career make moving
to her idyllic town impossible.
Now Casey must decide what she can’t live without—her life in the mountains or the man she wants as hers. Smart, sweet and blisteringly hot, Above All is about getting lost…and finding yourself right where you belong.
I loved this book from the start. Casey is thirty-something and living in the mountains after her break-up from her long-term boyfriend. I instantly liked her though felt she was a little old before him time sometimes – I am a year younger than her and don’t feel that way 😉
She works in a camp ground and when Ben walks in with his friends for a camping weekend she starts to fantasise about him – with him being in his twenties she thinks she has no chance!
As you know I don’t do spoilers, but this one is well worth the read, I loved Casey and Ben, their on-off relationship, as for a happy ever after you need to read it for yourself.
But I will say this, the ending left me wanting more of them and this a book I could read again.
About the Author
Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled
with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write
books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil,
traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored
ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma,
but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the
Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind
to try something new—and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t
know they’d been missing.
