BREATHE DEEP . . . AND JUMP IN
At the ends of the earth, Patagonia is a land where ambition trumps reason and the savage summit of La Aguja lures the most determined climbers. It's also the last spot a "play-it-safe girl" like Auden Woods expects to find herself. But she'll lace up her brand-new hiking boots and do whatever it takes to secure a dream job at an adventure magazine . . . even if it kills her. And it just might. When disaster strikes, her only chance at survival comes in the form of the surliest, sexiest mountaineer ever to come out of Scotland. After a climbing accident cost him his brother, professional mountaineer Rhys MacAskill is at the end of his rope. Redemption is not in his future. That is, until a terrifying storm blows a budding journalist into his tent and it's up to him to make sure they both survive until morning. Despite the demons weighing on him, Rhys can't resist the temptation of the charming American and one wild night just isn't enough. Auden and Rhys soon learn there are no shortcuts as they navigate their way between life, death, and atonement, and discover something they never expected-love
Five (4.5) Boundless Stars
Let me just say, I love Auden! She's hilarious but also some parts broken. Then there's Rhys! Umm hello Scottish Rock Climber. Auden goes on a trip to interview climbers for a magazine that she gets to intern at. It's her dream and a way to get out of the shadow of her evil witch twin sister.
She stumbles upon Rhys, while in South America. Without having any idea who he is. But he cares enough to help her, in a dyer situation. I loved the dynamic these two had. They brought something out of each other that no one really has.
I also feel it's more than about love. It's about rediscovery. Finding yourself and finding hope in someone. They both helped each other and saved each other from themselves.
This story was fun, hilarious, witty, romantic, steamy, heartbreaking, and downright awesome. I enjoyed it to the very last page. I'm glad I found such a cool writer and I don't doubt that I'll enjoy even more of her stories.
