Overview

Above All by Rebecca Brooks

Reeling from a sudden breakup, Casey Webb leaves Brooklyn, drives north, and settles in a sleepy mountain town in upstate New York. She's 34 and happy being alone...until she reads the acknowledgments in her ex-boyfriend's hit debut novel, thanking his new girlfriend "above all."

Good thing Ben Mailer is in town. He may only be 26, but the hot, Brooklyn-bound chef offers the perfect distraction. Soon Casey is having the best sex of her life--on a mountain, in a boat, all over the cozy cabin she calls home. But as their fling turns into more, the demands of Ben's family and budding career make moving to her idyllic town impossible.

Now Casey must decide what she can't live without--her life in the mountains, or the younger man she wants to be hers above all.

About the Author

Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than to write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.

I enjoyed reading this book. The characters weren't necessarily likable the entire time but I did liked how the author pulled the details of the story together and made it entertaining while doing it. A good book.

This was a sweet, romantic read. Older woman/younger man, though I thought there was a bit too much made of what did not seem like that big an age difference. I liked the main characters and the story kept me turning pages. Enjoyable read. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was a refreshingly, great read with a few laugh out loud moments. I loved how realistic the characters were...like a possible neighbor! Characters were well written. The steamy moments were perfect. Great read from Rebecca! My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.

***I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book through Book Sprout.*** Overall, a good story. Casey and Ben had that insta attraction but not everything was all roses for them. They were fairly likeable & the story had a nice pace to it.

Fresh start Sometimes a fresh start is just what's in order. However.... How many fresh starts does it take to get it right? You'll have to read this cute (with steamy parts too) happily ever after story. Rebecca did an awesome job at making this story seem as though the characters could be your neighbor! Great story!! ARC received from BookSprout for an honest voluntary review Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 18 and older!

Casey left New York she is a woman in her thirties and she is determined to start her life over. She works at a campsite but her first love is painting At the campsite she meets Ben an up and coming chef whose life revolves around the city . With a demanding family and career Ben's life isn't really is own but he is attracted to Casey and spends as much time as he can with her over the period of a year. This si a slow burn love story really much like real life not an instant lust and marriage there are some really humorous parts and some sad but that is life. Over all a great read about how a love takes time to build. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Casey just had a horrible breakup with her boyfriend of seven years. She leaves NY and goes north until she reaches a small town called Bonnet. She ends up working at a campground that she enjoys a lot. One day a group of old college friends come up to camp on the weekend and one is Ben. He’s a chef in a culinary school that graduates in August. He and Casey are attracted but she knows she’s older and try’s staying away. He wants to talk to her and they do but then he leaves. He unexpectedly shows up days later and they get really close. He then has to leave and she’s upset but he’ll be back after graduation. But he calls after graduating and tells her he can’t come and she hangs up. She feels that she’s been used again. She paints more and that goes to NY at a art gallery. Will they run into each other and figure out what happened? Do they have a future? I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is the story of Casey and Ben. She was eight years older than Ben and thought it was a major problem. Ben was trapped trying to please his parents. This book was fantastic and I loved it from beginning to end. A definite five-star read and highly recommended.

This is not the type of books I normally read but I really enjoyed it. It kept my attention all the way through the entire book. I loved Ben and liked Casey at first. Then I wanted to throat punch her because she could not seem to let go of the age difference. I mean seriously they are both adult and she kept bringing it up. Even in the last chapter she was still whining about it. The writing is smart and the story is great. I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Love the fact that this was somewhat of a complicated relationship but they had great chemistry together and just needed to find a way to be on the same path. The story-line was awesome and the characters were fresh and real. I volunteered to read an advance copy of this book.

Casey was hurt by a former boyfriend turned author. Ben is up to camp at the Adirondack mountains from N.Y.C. It's a back and forth. I got emotional on Casey's behalf. I'm glad she grew stronger throughout the book. But will she and Ben work things out? Read this emotional story and find out.

Overall I enjoyed this book. My issue was with Casey. At times it was hard for me to like her. Her low self-esteem was annoying. I liked Ben even though he had a few dick moments. At least he came to his senses. I was just glad that they got their HEA in the end.

Casey finds herself in a position of reinventing herself. She leaves NY and takes a job in the mountains at Paper Lake campground where she meets Ben. There is a connection between these two right from the start and their journey will have her opening places in her heart she thought long closed. Will these two get a happily ever after? This story and the settings are descriptive with dynamic characters that set the tone. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is a solid enjoyable read – older woman younger man romance … it is emotionally deep and beautiful! The scenes are incredibly descriptive and the imagery of Bonnet the author provided is so realistic I felt like I was right there experiencing it. The storyline is well developed and researched, witty with bits of humour thrown in, and a great pace from scene to scene. The characters show great depth with lots of hot, sizzling, sparks flying off the page chemistry between them. The couple went through a number of ups and downs on their path to HEA. This is truly an amazing love story and has it all – sweet main characters, supporting and likeable side characters, mouth-watering food, superb imagery, and love. Highly recommended.

This book was a really great read for me. I love the author's writing style which instantly drew me into the story and made me see, hear, and feel the campgrounds, the mountains, the lake, etc. where much of the story takes place. Poor Casey has her heart broken more than once in this book and I felt hurt and angry on her behalf which shows how deep into this story I was. I liked Ben but seriously, I don't know if I would have been so forgiving. I think I would have needed him to grovel a little bit! Anyway, this emotional story grabbed me from the get go. It's an engrossing read and I enjoyed it very much. I am voluntarily reviewing an advance reader copy of this book.
