Sierra


Taylor Dean
Contemporary Romance

"I  hate this chore with a passion.  But today, with you sitting in the middle of the creek, I suddenly find it incredibly entertaining."




In one afternoon, everything that matters to Alyssa is taken from her.  Taken captive by the men who ripped her whole world from her, Alyssa is dragged through the mountains.  When an unlikely twist of fate leads Alyssa and her captors to Alex's cabin, Alyssa has almost given up hope.  What's left to live for anyway?  Alex can't sit by and do nothing though.  Saving this poor, beautiful woman is all that matters.  But somehow, he must find a way to help her heal emotionally as well as physically.  Stuck together in his remote cabin, they must work together to not only make it through the winter, but to find a way to move on past the tragedies that have marred the past.  And perhaps find happiness for the future.

My Opinion: This was not what I expected with this read.  With a rather light touch of the dramatic, most of the story covered a slow and meticulous story that I found less than believable.  I actually grew to dislike Alyssa.  I found the romance, though sweet, to be unrealistic due to the timing.  Alex is a good character, both strong and sweet.  Their story is heart-wrenching and sweet and sad all at the same time.  Though fairly well written, I couldn't get past the disregard for the recent tragedy that Alyssa seemed to adopt.  The plot took on a very raw emotional atmosphere that you don't often come across.  An interesting read, but not one I prefer when it comes to sinking into a good romance.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.

  1. Thanks for reading and reviewing Sierra, Jennifer. Because of the deep emotion in this book, I've found readers either LOVE it or HATE it. No in between! Regardless, I appreciate you taking the time to read it!
