UNEXPECTEDLY HERS (Sterling Canyon Book 3) by Jamie Beck
Publication Date: February 21, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
By day, bashful wallflower Emma Duffy works at her family’s bed-and-breakfast. By night, she secretly pens erotic romance hot enough to melt the snow in their cozy Rockies town.
But Emma’s real life is about to heat up when her mother books the entire inn to a professional snowboarder, hoping the publicity will put them on the map. In a karmic twist of fate, that guest is Wyatt Lawson, the man with whom Emma had shared the secret one-night stand that became the inspiration for her novel and its dreamy hero. Worse, a film crew is documenting his comeback just as her debut is about to hit the shelves. Emma’s only saving grace is that Wyatt doesn’t remember her—and hopefully he never will.
When Wyatt arrives in Sterling Canyon for several weeks of intense training, the last tumble he expects to take is falling for a girl, especially one as shy as Emma. Unlike groupies with their hidden agendas, she isn’t using him—or so he believes…until the film crew uncovers Emma’s pen name and steamy novel.
Wyatt’s comeback run can withstand a fall or two, but can his heart recover from this crash and burn?
This romance revolved around two people, so caught up in trying to take care of others that they forgot to nurture their own happiness. It’s not a light fun romance, but rather Emma and Wyatt’s journey to find themselves and break free of their self-perceived obligations. It’s well written and keeps you reading and wondering until the end. I liked it.
