There’s a massive, ripped mountain man named Heathcliff. He’s brooding, bearded, and sexy as hell. Then there’s city girl Violet, a TV producer hungry for a hit show. You’d best not get in the way of her Louboutin heels or make her chip her nails. They both have secrets they’re trying to hide. They’re having even more trouble keeping their hands off of each other. When Violet’s reality show “Hot Off the Grid” starts filming in Heath’s tiny Vermont town, what could possibly go wrong?
My Review – 5 Stars
My long running #1 book boyfriend has officially been replaced by Heath. Oh my goodness! Get a fan or your man, because you’ll definitely need some cooling off or attention while reading this book. Breaks, lots and lots of breaks… 😉 Callie is the queen of the long seduction. From the moment Violet walked into that bar and locked eyes with Heath, it was intense. I could physically feel the want and need coming from them. And that scene in the truck?! Swoon! I was left begging for the moment when all that passion was sated. We all know how insanely hot Callie’s books are! And if you don’t, get to reading!
Callie created multidimensional characters in Heath and Violet, as she always does. They had depth, history, and lives outside of each other. I loved learning about their jobs, relationships, and struggle within themselves to find their true happiness. And they were just as wonderful together. I haven’t read many couples with such an extreme desire to be near each other. Whenever they were in the same room, it permeated the air. There was no chance of fighting the visceral connection they felt.
Heath and Violet’s relationship had disaster written all over it. Both were clearly at odds with each other. Heath was a loner trying to escape his former life, and Violet wanted to make her splash in entertainment by putting him in the spotlight. Or did she? It’s amazing what possessiveness will do to one’s career. I was excited to see how this battle played out, and I wasn’t disappointed. The foreboding was evident throughout, and I could see their worlds crumbling around them. Heath and Violet were equally responsible for their own undoing. It’s too bad that they couldn’t just stay wrapped up in solitude in each others arms and his cabin instead of going back to real life. Fortunately for us, Callie is a master at bringing her couples back to what’s most important, each other. And I appreciated the lack of drama and angst surrounding the fallout from the hidden truths and misunderstandings.
