|Nina Sheridan’s on a timeout adventure in the Colorado Mountains. She needs distance from her clueless fiancé, distance to decide whether she wants to spend the rest of her life with a man who doesn’t care enough to learn how she takes her coffee. Arriving in a blinding snowstorm at the A-Frame she rented, she comes face to face with the most amazing man she’s ever seen. Minutes later, when he kicks her out of his house, she goes head to head with him. Beyond angry because she’s flown half a world away to start her timeout adventure, not to mention her sinuses hurt, she heads back down the mountain and ends up in a ditch. Unable to extricate herself, she gives up, hopes for rescue and falls asleep in the backseat. The next morning she wakes up in the amazing man’s bed and she’s sick as a dog. Holden Maxwell spends days nursing her back to health and then he spends the next two weeks trying to convince her to take her Colorado adventure further, in other words, make it permanent and take a gamble on him. Nina has a tough time fighting her attraction to Max, especially when it seems all Max’s friends, her mother and stepdad and the whole town want them together and both she and Max get embroiled in the murder of Max’s ex-friend and the town of Gnaw Bone’s most detested resident – a man everyone has motive to kill, especially Max.|

This was one of the "must read after Fifty Shades" books that were recommended to me. The cover looked a little steamier than I was used to, but I figured it was worth a try.
Character development. You got to know each of the characters so well in this book. I figure that's because each guy is going to have his own novel, but it made the story so much richer by giving you info on all the people involved in the storyline.
This book had an actual plot. Yes. You read right. An erotic romance with an actual plot. And it was GOOD.
Myrna is a smart, no-nonsense lady. I liked that.
Brian = biggest sweetheart I could ever dream up. He has the biggest heart.
I love me some rockstar romances, and this was the epitome of it.
This book was FUNNY. There was a lot of moments that had me laughing out loud.
The name Myrna. Really? I get that she was supposed to be sexy librarian-like but the old lady name was really "ew" to me.
They probably could have toned down the sex a bit. There were parts where I was like "uhhh... again?".
"Master Sinclair" was a little creepy. It was an alter ego that didn't fit Brian at all.
The situation with Brian's parents seemed forced. It probably could have been left out.
The Wrap Up: 4/5
Probably the best erotic romance I've read since Fifty Shades. It didn't quite have the plot line pros that Fifty did, but it wasn't just smut.
"I need a million dollars to pay the ransom on my kidnapped poodle."
