Publisher's Summary

With a kidney transplant behind her, Avery Adams is determined to channel her inner adventurer and explore everything life has to offer. Only problem is, the closest she's ever come to a real-life adventure was sixth-grade science camp. So to seize the summer in her rustic Sierra Nevada town, she takes a job as a guide at the local adventure lodge. But Avery doesn't realize her biggest challenge will register at six-plus feet of rugged good looks and alpha-male charm.
As a member of the Sequoia Elite Mountain Rescue team, Tyson Donovan has made a life out of cheating death and rescuing weekend warriors from the treacherous terrain. "The world is my home" is more than just a motto; it's what scares off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. When his dad's health lands the family's adventure lodge in serious danger of going up in flames, he moves home - and quickly remembers why he left. Until he meets Avery, the irresistible new guide who makes him want to stay.
Tyson gives the inexperienced Avery a lesson in romance that her books could never teach her. And with her undeniable spirit for life, Avery shows Tyson the healing power of love. But with one misstep, everything comes crashing down, and they'll both have to take the biggest leap of all - into the kind of adventure that lasts a lifetime.

Great read and listen..



Wow! A simple love story that I enjoyed very, very much. There was joy, sadness, love, an old story of death, guilt, and Avery’s “live out loud” attitude. I have never read a book where anyone had a better outlook on life. This woman wasn’t afraid of anything because since her kidney disease had made her suffer for so long, then a kidney transplant she didn’t know whether it would last a day or twenty years, just made her fearless. You couldn’t help but love Avery. And I loved her memory journal.

And then, Ty, who had snuck out when he was 17 to climb a mountain and his brother who followed him fell and was killed and that left Ty steeped in guilt for a lot of years. Ty came home from Monterey to help his parents but soon discovered his father was suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s. And that’s where he met the office manager, Avery. And what Avery did to Ty was just awesome. The way she changed the way he saw things, the love that grew between the two was so awesome.

There were a couple of explicit sex scenes in this book but it was romantic sex not erotic.

And the F-bomb was used 21 times.

As to the narration: This was my second time listening to Renee Raudman and she did a great job, as she did before. The voices were terrific and she reads with awesome emotions. I’ll be buying the next book in this series in two days.
