Steve Johnson is living his life’s passion watching over the Colorado Mountains as a ranger and wildlife consultant. But his peaceful life is upended when overzealous and insanely beautiful Shannon Braden flits back into his life after returning from a brief trip home to Maryland. He thought his attraction to her was under control—after all, she’s only in Colorado temporarily, and he doesn’t do casual affairs.

Shannon’s return to Colorado has as much to do with the game of cat and mouse she and Steve have been playing as it does the data she’s been hired to collect. But despite her efforts to explore the undeniable heat simmering between them, Steve’s intent on keeping his distance.

When a ranch abutting the national park goes up for sale, Steve will do whatever it takes to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. And when all his attempts fail, he’s left with no alternative but to follow Shannon’s guidance into the online world he abhors in order to raise the funds. The more time they spend together, the deeper their attraction becomes, and a game of cat and mouse turns into an unstoppable connection. But when Shannon’s assignment comes to an end, will it mean an end to them, too?

My Review:

     I have been a huge Melissa Foster fan since I found her books almost two years ago. I will admit that I had to take a little break from them though. They all kind of started running together and sounding the same to me. But I decided to come off of my break and give this book a chance.

     In this book we get to follow Shannon and Steve. This book is part of a series, but like all of Mrs. Foster's books can be read as a standalone. But you may want to go back and read the other's to get to know the other characters.

     I liked both of these characters. Steve and Shannon are total opposites. Shannon is fun, outgoing, sassy, and friendly. Steve is quiet, a homebody, and loves to be alone.

    I thought this book was a fun, light-hearted read. I thought that the character's were very likable and relatable.

     I'm giving this book 3.5 Stars out of 5!!!!
