I thought this book was great! It caught my attention from the first page and I didn't want to stop reading.
Brina was such a great character and had been through so much in her life. I was horrified how Christmas was essentially destroyed for her but her mom needed to continue with the tradition and return to Wyoming. But at the same time I understood that it was a place where she would not be in the press. I loved how simple Brina lived her life with her store and that it was her passion to draw and create clothes and surfboards.
Wade was such an interesting character with his "double" life. I liked how the job was passed down to him from his dad Glenn, who was an important part of Brina's dad's inner circle. I also loved how Glenn wanted to protect Brina from the playboy side of Wade saying he thought of her as a daughter.
I definitely loved the hotness of the relationship between Brina and Wade. Wade was so protective over Brina and hated whenever he needed to leave her.
I honestly never saw the twist coming and was surprised by it but loved it! It made the story so much more grittier and I knew that there would be a fight no matter what happened. Loved it!!
Definitely looking forward to more from this author!
