about book: (summary from Goodreads)
A down-on-her-luck city girl searches for new purpose among the shelves of a failing bookstore in the quaint town of Pine Ridge, New York--until a forbidden love tempts her to go off-book.
When life sets fire to your happily ever after, you ditch your cheating boyfriend, trade in the city life for the off-the-grid seclusion of your mother's bookstore in the mountains...and try to resist your attraction to the brooding town mechanic you accidentally got into a fender bender with outside the local bar. Sydney Walsh might be falling head over heels for the romance novels she's stocking up to rebuild The Loving Page, but she has no delusions about actually starring in one. That chapter has closed.
Beneath Sam Kirkland's gruff mountain-man exterior lies a gentle heart and a burning desire for the woman he knows he can't have. He's made promises that anchor him to the past, making romance off-limits. And he accepted that--until Sydney came crashing into his life.
Sam can't do a relationship right now. Sydney doesn't have the wherewithal to believe in one. But when you meet the right person, the wrong circumstances don't matter. Even when the world seems to be doing its best to keep them apart, their real, one-of-a-kind love is worth fighting for.
What a fun and engaging story! I just loved Wild Love by Lauren Accardo.
City life is just not working out for Sydney - she's in debt, just found her boyfriend in bed with someone that is most definitely not her, and has finally realized that she has no friends. Yep, she needs a change - ASAP! So, she heads to Pine Ridge, a town in the mountains that is home to her mom and her mom's bookstore (that is apparently failing). As soon as gets to town, Sydney crashes into Sam - literally crashes into him. He's the town mechanic who has sworn off love. Of course, there's an instant attraction, but both have issues that they need to deal with before they can truly find a way to be with each other. And so the story truly begins. We walk the streets of the charming little town of Pine Ridge and meet all of its interesting citizens, while we watch love blown between Sydney and Sam.
Accardo has written a great love story that is filled with romance, drama, and charm. You will fall in deep with Wild Love.
