SummaryAdd a Summary
Gabe is a park Ranger in Boulder who enjoys his work, and is an extreme sport enthusiast and a rock-jock mountain climber. He meets Kat during a rescue where a rock slide nearly takes her life. It is sometime later that their paths cross again, but they do remember each other and things begin to simmer. Kat is an investigative reporter for the Denver newspaper I-Team, and is also a Navajo Native American from New Mexico now living in Denver. When Kat becomes part of a story about the rights of the local Native American's being violated -- including unknown enemies trying to remove them from their sacred Indian grounds -- she finds herself turning to Gabe for information and help.
The relationship between Gabe and Kat starts slowly at first, as these two are as opposite as you can get. Gabe is a man who plays the field and has no qualms about recreational sex, while Kat is a woman whose beliefs have instilled in her the desire to wait and find her half-mate. The story takes these two on a journey where the suspense just builds and builds as more tragic events occur, more attempts on their lives are made, and the risks they face become higher and higher. There is also a great deal of information woven into the story about the life and beliefs of the Navajo and local Native Americans, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The chemistry between these two heats up to a million degrees, and the dialog between these two at times had me in stitches just laughing! They made just a perfect team, and there are so many great scenes in this book to prove it. Throughout all of this I couldn't help but admire Kat as she was a mix of both grace and guts. Despite everything that happens, she keeps her head on straight and never waivers. And best yet, she had enough insight to see past Gabe's machinations and into the person he really is.
Overall, this is much more than just a sexy-steamy read, and in my opinion the best in the series so far, which is saying a lot as they all rock. While there are characters from previous books, it is a stand-alone read too and would be a great place to start if you haven't read this author before. Enjoy!
