Overview

*NOTE: Previously titled Deep Blue*

Jaeger Lang is handsome, rich, and he knows how to work with his hands as a world-renowned woodworker. He's also my brother's best friend and the former champion skier I secretly crushed on back in high school.

I've always known where I was going. Spend one last summer with my best friend, then law school in the fall--everything is set. Only it's not, because as soon as I return home and run into Jaeger again, I begin to lose everything: my boyfriend, my job, and most importantly, my sense of what I want in life.

I'm no longer certain of anything, except for one: I want Jaeger.

But the past that shaped him into this self-possessed man has returned to bite him in the ass, and I'm caught in the middle. Little do I know it will be more than my heart on the line.

**Each book in the Men of Lake Tahoe Series is a standalone story that can be read in any order.**

Hard Wood (Book 1) – Jaeger
Mountain Man (Book 2) – Lewis
Rebound Roommate (Book 3) – Tyler
Hookup Master (Novella, Book 4) – Zach
Cocky Prince (Book 5) – Adam

I found the descriptions and opening chapters to this story immersed me in the world of Lake Tahoe casino working. The main character is not stupid, she knows her current boyfriend, Eric is pulling away - as the saying goes "out of sight out of mind". It did take what seemed ages for her to realise it was over though. Would you really leave it weeks of not hearing from your long distance boyfriend before you didn't bother contact him anymore or got to the bottom of it? I think that was the only part I didn't really get to grips with. Jeager came across as a cool dude and much more to who I envisaged Cali with. There are a few twists and turns along the way to the end but overall a refreshingly less emotionally draining storyline than the usual NA formula. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 stars This a quick light read about Cali & Jaeger and the relationship. I enjoyed the attraction and the humorous dialogue. I did enjoy the storyline but at times I want it to give me more info or at times it left me with questions and I don't know if they'll ever get answered. I will be getting book 2 Blue Crush cause I am intrigued by Gen and what she's been up to.

I just love new adult romance. Jules Barnard has created a great group of characters and a storyline that keeps you glued to the page. The complicated love story is one that all young women will enjoy. The decision to choose between love and friendship makes this a nail-biting romance in which you can't wait to see how things turn out.
