Publisher's Summary

Elle's life couldn't possibly get any more small town. She was raised in the same home as the two generations before her, her family owns the iconic downtown cafe, and she's been dating the pastor's son since she was allowed to go on her first date at sixteen.
Cole's life couldn't possibly get any larger. He's tried. Roaming from town to town for the past three summers as a smokejumper, Cole dreads the thought of putting down roots. The only thing he avoids more than that is settling down with one woman, especially when there are as many willing women as there are trees in the forest he jumps out of planes to save.
Elle Montgomery's life is going one way. And Cole Carson's is going the opposite. There's no reason their paths should ever intersect, even in a small town in central Washington. But summer in the Methow Valley has other plans for Elle and Cole.
After an awkward run-in at the local swimming hole, Elle tries to keep away from the guy who looks at her like she's already lying beneath him in bed. She fails. Cole is about as successful at staying away from the girl who seems immune to his charms. As the summer heats up, and tensions between Elle and Cole run high, Cole begins to realize there's more he's attracted to than Elle's body, and she discovers there's a lot more to the man that jumps out of planes into raging forest fires than meets the eye.

Oh the follies of 18 year olds.

Well, I like this writer. The heroine of this story is 18, and she acts it. She is a nice girl and you like her, but she lets mountains become molehills and makes a habit of creating more problems by avoiding conflict. That's what eighteen year olds do, right? At least that's what I did. Drama was everything. So, bear all this in mind before buying. The 18-25 year old crowd might find more logic in Elle's behavior. I found little.

I like the writing, it's just that the characters were not what I'm looking for. I will look into some of Ms. Williams other work to see if something fits me better.

Good narrator.

Too Young for Me

I have a different take on this book then the other reviewers. I’m not sure that I really liked it. I did not hate it but overall I felt like I was too old and could not relate to the characters. I've read other teen inspired stories but this is not one I really enjoyed from start to finish. I was upset that Elle was so weak and then a cheater on top of that. I cannot believe anyone could be that naive. I cannot say that I would recommend this book. Especially not for the price. If it was on sale and you go in with the right expectations, then maybe I would say get it because it is not a terrible listen. I just think the characters were too immature for my tastes. So I give this mixed reviews.

Fantastic but too short!

This book was brilliant. Excellent story line which was believable and well read. Should particularly appeal to those like me who like small town story settings and small town characters who've perhaps led small but significant lives. The love triangle may be upsetting to some but I enjoyed it with just the right level of emotion being inflicted upon me and I have to say that the few 'love scenes' that appear in this book were the hottest I've read in a long time in that un-porn, un-erotic but rather the real, raw and pure way other books nowadays fail to portray love scenes. It was romance, but real kind which is hotter than the kind that read like pornos written by men. Love it and look forward to more from this author.

Enjoyed thoroughly

this was my first book into 'erotic' genre and I am very impressed. the Author is great and the narrator did a good job also. Some might say only love; but passion makes us do silly things. i definitely recommend.
