Angel's Rest by Emily March + GIVEAWAY

Source: Won it

My summary:

Gabriel has lost everything of importance in his life. He's come to Eternity Springs to... be alone.  Empty.  Nothing.  He doesn't know what he wants but he knows it's not to have a dog or to meet a women.  He needs...what?  He doesn't know.

Nic is recovering from the betrayal of her husband.  She's come home to Eternity Springs to build a new life.  Dogs are a huge part of that life and this place is important to her.  It strengthens her.

Together, they don't work.  Nic wants to build a new life but Gabe is stuck in the past.  Does she have the patience to wait for Gabe to heal or will he chase her away with his pain?

My thoughts:

4 stars - a great story

I've been in the mood for contemporary romance lately.  I won this book in a giveaway and when it came in the mail, I couldn't help but pick it up.  It didn't take long to read it.  It's a great story.

I loved the real characters.  Both Gabe and Nic have baggage and neither of them just get fixed living in Eternity Springs.  It's a long process that rings true for both of them.  I really enjoyed that this book was more about the healing of two injured souls through a romance than just a story of two people falling in love.

I enjoyed reading from both Nic and Gabe's POV.  Been really drawn to reading from the male POV and Emily got that right.  Gabe thinks male.  He doesn't see some obvious things and his focus is where you'd expect.  I loved him though.  Trying so hard to do the right thing but messing it up.  I loved Nic too.  She's strong and patient with Gabe.  She sees how injured he is and she does a fabulous job of helping him heal.  I loved that she didn't take everything he dished out though.  She stood up for herself and put him in his place a few times.  The dynamics between them was real.  I enjoyed it.

If you're in the mood for some adult contemporary romance, then this one is a great choice.
