Steve Johnson is living his life's passion watching over the Colorado Mountains as a ranger and wildlife consultant. But his peaceful life is upended when overzealous and insanely beautiful Shannon Braden flits back into his life after returning from a brief trip home to Maryland. He thought his attraction to her was under control - after all, she's only in Colorado temporarily, and he doesn't do casual affairs.
Shannon's return to Colorado has as much to do with the game of cat and mouse she and Steve have been playing as it does the data she's been hired to collect. But despite her efforts to explore the undeniable heat simmering between them, Steve's intent on keeping his distance.
When a ranch abutting the national park goes up for sale, Steve will do whatever it takes to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. And when all his attempts fail, he's left with no alternative but to follow Shannon's guidance into the online world he abhors in order to raise the funds. The more time they spend together, the deeper their attraction becomes, and a game of cat and mouse turns into an unstoppable connection. But when Shannon's assignment comes to an end, will it mean an end to them, too?
Shannon and Steve's HEA
Shannon Braden is working in the mountains of Colorado doing research for the company she works for. During her time there, she forms a connection with Steve Johnson. Once home for her brother’s wedding, her sister convinces her to go back to Colorado to see if anything will happen between her and Steve. Instead of staying with one of her relatives, her company rents her a cabin in the mountains close to Steve’s home.
Steve Johnson not only loves his cabin and job, he also loves the solitude the mountain provides; that is until Shannon shows back up on his mountain. The attraction is mutual, but he knows she is only there for a short time. He tries to fight his attraction to her but their chemistry is just too much. As their relationship builds, will she be able to leave him at the end of her assignment and will he let her go.
Opposites do attract!
I loved listening to this story! I read the book when it was first released but you really get a different view when listening to the story. BJ does a great job telling Melissa’s stories.
This is the perfect example of opposites attracting. Steve and Shannon couldn’t be more different, but they have amazing chemistry. I highly recommend this audiobook.
Shannon and Steve have super hot chemistry!!
I loved Crushing on Love. Shannon Braden is a strong heroine. She knows what she wants and goes after it. And what she wants is the handsome wildlife ranger, Steve Johnson.
Steve doesn’t want change. He likes his quiet, reclusive life in the Colorado mountains. But his attraction to Shannon and their super hot chemistry definitely proves too much for him to resist.
Crushing on Love is book four in The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor series. There are interconnecting characters but all the stories are complete standalones.
I’ve been listening to these stories on audiobook and I really enjoy the wonderful narration.
