Review: Barely Breathing (Colorado High Country, #1) by Pamela Clare
Lexi Jewell left Scarlet Springs twelve years ago, vowing never to return to the eccentric Colorado mountain town where she grew up. Now, here she is—over thirty, out of a job and with little choice but to move back in with her father. Lexi knows it’s just a matter of time before she runs into Austin Taylor, her first boyfriend and her first heartbreak. She’s determined to show him she’s over him—until he steps out of a pickup truck and back into her life, looking sexy as hell in his mountain ranger uniform.
As far as Austin is concerned, Lexi can turn her snazzy little convertible around and drive back to Chicago. After all, she ripped his teenage heart apart and turned her back on the town he loves. But from the moment he sees her again, he can’t get her out of his mind. Even her smile messes with his head.
When an evening of conversation turns into something else, Lexi and Austin agree to be friends again—with benefits. But as Lexi starts making plans to return to the big city, Austin realizes he’ll lose her a second time unless he can show her that what she’s searching for has been right here all along.
Barely Breathing by Pamela Clare
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The authors love for her home state of Colorado, vase knowledge of climbing and her deep appreciating of the men and women who risk their lives saving those who get into trouble on those mountains is clear in this first book of her Colorado High Country series.
Second chance romance, with lots of great secondary characters plus the men and women of the rescue teams, who I am sure will be getting stories of their own in the future, made this a very enjoyable read with plenty of laughs, tears, sexy moments and some suspense.
(oh and we get the bonus of two characters from her I-Team series making an appearance)
