Cassidy Clarke once climbed the world’s highest mountains, but after an unexpected illness ends her career she’s back in her hometown, broke and hoping for a little luck. But the townsfolk aren’t exactly putting out a welcome mat for the woman who once snubbed them in the media, despite her apologies now.
Mitch Anders knows someone has set up camp on the grounds of his plant nursery, and he’s surprised to find his sexy high school crush ducking questions about where she’s staying. Though he’s sworn to stop cleaning up other people’s messes, Mitch offers Cassidy a job and a place to stay—his place. Bedsharing optional, but definitely welcome.
Out of options and too attracted to Mitch to keep things platonic, Cassidy says yes to his offer. She wants to get back on her feet financially and start a new career. She never expects to suffer a different kind of fall, one that has her believing Mitch just might bring her something bigger and better than luck.

I try really hard to love this series, but is a little difficult after the stories I keep hearing. This is supposed to be a warm and friendly town, but every time there’s something wrong with the way people acted or judge someone else. This time Cassidy was ostracized just because she gave a bad interview once in her career and everyone talks badly about her. No one ask how she feels or anything about her day, they simple have no idea about her life, but the stares never go away. This definitely doesn’t sound like a nice little town.
Cassidy had the misfortune lose all her money with a bad manager, he stole and now she decided to return home and live with her stepfather, but he doesn’t let her enter the house and she had to camp, because the nice people of this town couldn’t bother to offer shelter. It sounds a bit harsh, but I didn’t liked the way people treated her, and when she was a victorious climber everyone was cheering for her. Weird right?
But I liked the couple in this book. Mitch was a nice guy and he never really cared for what people were saying, so that’s a plus, but he’s friendly and these two are so sweet together. It was nice seeing all those other characters again.
