]A world-renowned extreme athlete. A motivational speaker and philanthropist. He thinks they're a match destined for heaven. She's convinced they're polar opposites.
Bridger Hawk has been in love with Avalyn Shaman since childhood. He knows he'll never be worthy of her charitable heart so he throws himself into a life-threatening extreme sports career. When they reconnect at his brother's wedding, he can't resist kissing her at every opportunity. She demands he stay away from her and her heart.

Avalyn has always loved Bridger but he shredded her heart in high school and she knows given a chance, he'll do it again. When she's kidnapped and forced to be the pawn and prize in dangerous events that risk her life and her virtue, Bridger is forced to compete in the deranged challenges and is the only hope she has to survive. Can Bridger win and prove to her that his love isn't just a show for his fans?
Bridger knows he has to save Avalyn at all costs ... even if it means he can't have her.
I think I got myself into a reading rut over Christmas vacation. I picked up a couple books, started them and then put them down because it just wasn't what I wanted to read. I can be a moody reader- especially when I am reading for my own pleasure and not for reviews. What do I really want to read? I was in this predicament when I started reading this book by Cami Checketts. I had picked up two books, started them, but they weren't tickling my fancy. I started this book and right away it caught my attention because, hello kiss! Yeah, I will admit with no shame that I really love when a books starts me off with a tingling kiss. That was the hook for me with this book. It made my drive through Nevada a WHOLE lot more pleasurable!!
The premise of this book is unlike any other I've read. I loved the extreme sport slant and how Bridger was so gifted with athletics and didn't back down from the challenges posed to him. He was strong, capable and determined. He protected Avalyn with everything in him. That is sexy.
This book hit my sweet spot for sure. I loved all the yummy kissing, the swirling attraction and the building tension. The story had me engaged and interested from start to finish. I loved the ending. <dreamy sigh>
