Carrying a naked woman up a mountain in a driving storm – now there’s a way for a man to start the day. But for Jamie, the unconscious redhead in his arms is an intruder, one who could bring harm. He has his reasons for hiding out in this mountain cabin; for keeping his emotions hidden; for never, ever getting too close to anyone. And he’s not about to stop now.
Before she passed out in his bed, she said her name was Faith – an appropriate name since he has to take her at her word. Who is she? Why is she here? Who sent her? And what is she doing to him? Jamie’s used to feelings of wariness, isolation, of being on guard. What he’s not used to is this dangerous, nearly uncontrollable new emotion raging through him.
Jamie wants Faith, as a man wants a woman…and it may already be too late to turn back…
REVIEW: If there could be a favorite character in a series well then for me it has been Jaime in this series, well him and a few of the secondary characters. By the time I was able to read this book I had read the others in the series a couple of times. So I really wanted to know Jaime’s story.
Jaime is a man that keeps himself very private. When he moved to Visitation he isolated himself so much that no one knew him and he liked that. Then Joe came to town and with him Luna and his sister Alex, then came Bryan and Shay, and then Bruce and Cyn, and then Julie and Clint. It wasn’t so much then men but the women that wouldn’t allow him to hide up in his mountain. They all snuck in began to matter to him.
After reading Jaime’s story and finding out how abused he had been well then you understand why he didn’t want anyone close to him. So when he finds Faith on his mountain well he is very very wary and doesn’t trust her. However he wants her.
Faith is in danger and doesn’t know from where or why. All she knows is that she needs Jaime. However Faith is keeping a HUGE secret from him, one that may make him hate her.
I loved how this story developed. How Jaime bit by bit allowed Faith in. How he slowly began to make changes to his appearance. Shaving his mountain man beard, and cutting his hair. One of my favorite scenes is when the men (Joe, Bryan, Bruce and Clint) see him after he cleans up and how they complain about how his good lucks will make the women love him more.
The one thing that I really really liked however was the when Jaime was in danger and needed help everyone was there to help him. Letting him know that he mattered to them. They were all their to support him as his world was rocked and shifted on it’s axis. One of the best scenes was when everyone was crowding him, wanting to know what was going on and wanting to help Jaime threw everyone under the bus, telling them things that they either didn’t know, or had just found out, in a bid to distract everyone from him.
The chemistry between Jaime and Faith was explosive, and once again Ms. Foster made me laugh at times and fan myself at other times.
If you haven’t already read this series then I suggest that you go and correct this mistake immediately.
I give this book a 4.75 out of 5
