Author: Amanda Cuff

Year of publication: New release! The author kindly gave me a copy to read and review

The heroine: Addison McCormick

The hero: Chase Prescott

The blurb: Addison McCormick has everything. A handsome fiancé, wealth, and a lucrative career as a lawyer at her father’s firm. But when she catches her soon-to-be-husband cheating, she has to start anew.

Now, single, unemployed, and heartbroken, she decides a vacation is just what she needs to escape the wreckage in L.A.—and serene Colorado is calling her name.

What she doesn’t expect to find there is Chase Prescott: the sexy, brooding owner of the cabin she’s renting. She sees him as nothing more than a vacation boyfriend, a quick and dirty fling to help her get over her recent heartbreak.

But she soon discovers his mysterious aura is not just a front, and the fantasy world they create will crash head-on with their harsh reality.

What happens when a relationship meant only to last a few days becomes something that might last a lifetime?

Standalone or series: This is part one in the Hearts in Waiting duet.

The review: I was impressed by this debut of Amanda Cuff’s. It was well written and I really enjoyed reading about Addison and Chase, and their romance.

Addison decides to flee to Colorado after finding her fiance cheating on her and walking out on her job at her cold father’s law firm, where the fiance also happens to work. She takes her best friend with her and they rent a cabin. When they meet the neighbours, one of whom’s family happens to own the resort, sparks fly between the four. Addison is instantly attracted to Chase, although he seems aloof at first, and it doesn’t take long before they act on their desire for each other.

The lust between them burns hot and the sex is awesome, but then Chase leaves suddenly without explanation. Addison chalks it up to a vacation fling, although she finds herself missing Chase a lot. Then she finds out something that has her heading back to Denver to find him, but once she’s there she discovers a few things Chase neglected to tell her.

This ends on a cliffhanger as it’s the first in a duet, and while I won’t reveal the twist, I will say it’s not something I’m a fan of. However, I enjoyed this story enough to want to read what happens next, and I look forward to more books from Amanda.
