Maisy is happily content with the life she's built for herself and her young son in small-town Prescott, Montana. Her child is thriving, her business is growing, and her family is as close as they've ever been. But when a handsome stranger walks into the lobby of her motel, her simple life is swept up in a wave of affection for his gentle heart. None of those feelings can be trusted, though. She made that mistake before with another man. The man she murdered.
Hunter was a different man when he first saw Maisy Holt from afar. He took one look at her and ran in the opposite direction. But years later, he's back in Montana and unable to keep his distance. He shouldn't have tried to find her but he never was good at rejecting temptation. The promise of the good she could bring into his life is too hard to resist. Maybe if he can disguise the lies and hide the deceit, he can keep her from learning the truth. Because his only chance at a future with her is by burying his past.

Exciting and hot
I have been dying for Maisy’s story. A woman that is forced to make impossible choices but still comes out on top. Now it’s her turn for love. But of course it can’t be that easy. Hunter comes into her life and it’s instant connection. What happens after is chuck full of action and intensity and crazy chemistry.
Ava and Aiden are perfection. Ava has played the role of each female character perfectly. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed her. Aiden was Hunter personified. Loved it.

Loved the narration as much as the story!
Audiobook: Narrated by Ava Erikson and Aiden Snow
OMG!!! I loved the narration of this book! Both of these narrators added a whole new depth and dimension to the story. I couldn’t have asked for a better duo for Maisy and Hunter. Ava, as always, is spot on with each character while Aiden was the perfect voice of Hunter. I often need a chapter or two, if not more, to adjust to the voices but there was no struggle here. It started smoothly and continued on. Absolutely loved this audio!!!
Where to even start? This was the most amazing book! I absolutely loved everything about it! Every. Single. Thing.
Maisy Holt is a survivor and a savior. She survived Everett and while doing so saved her son Coby. It took a few years and life changes before she was “okay”, and everyone in Prescott will tell you that she’s moved on and all of that nastiness is in the past. With her to-do list and her renovations, the Bitterroot Inn has been her saving grace. Even if she occasionally feels a twinge of envy when in the presence of her friends and family and their significant others, she’s not quite ready to actively pursue a relationship. That is, until Hunter Faraday walks into her lobby.
Hunter has a deep dark secret that he’s keeping close. Protecting it until the time is right, as if there could ever be such a time. He was drawn to Maisy the first time he laid eyes on her and now that he’s returned to Prescott he finds himself pulled to her against all common sense and self-warnings. From the moment he heard her laughter and saw her smile he belonged to her. But how can a man build a relationship with the woman of his heart when he’s forced to hold so much of himself back?
I cannot say how much I adored these characters! My heart hurt for Maisy as I learned some of the techniques she had indulged in to help her deal with the effects Everett’s words had on her. On the surface she is a woman of strength but as the story progresses that strength grows and takes root deep inside of her. Hunter comes with quite a bit of baggage himself and my heart was heavy when all of his secrets were revealed. Ultimately, he was a man deeply in love and prepared to do whatever it took to make things right. That right there feeds my romantic soul. Hunter never once gave up and he made sure Maisy knew that he never would. Sigh.
Some interesting things I learned from The Bitterroot Inn:
Kicking a man in the cojones can be a precursor to falling in love
You can forget Santa Claus if you’ve got The Package Man - get your minds out of the gutter
Nervous energy can be transmitted from the page into your body resulting in tapping feet, bouncing legs and chewed off nails – Ms. Perry owes me a manicure
One text message can turn you into a sobbing mess – oh gawd that text killed me!
With just a look, I’m already in love with Mason Drummond
And the perfect epilogue can make you smile even as you weep because it is just…so…perfect.
Thank you Devney Perry for introducing me to all of the Jamison Valley characters that were parading in your head. I’ve absolutely loved getting to know them and while I will certainly revisit them in the future, I am saddened that for now the door is closing on this beautiful and amazing series.
