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.

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!!

Exciting and Enjoyable
Above All by Rebecca Brooks was a fun and entertaining story. The story had a bit of heartbreak but it also had you smiling. The characters were quite enjoyable they were likable, fun and definitely intriguing. Casey wanted to be anywhere but the big city after her sudden break up. She finds herself in a small mountain town working at a local camp ground, she is happy living her life and believes she is doing good all by herself or is she. Ben and a few college friends meet for a weekend reunion at the campsite where these two meet and there are a few sparks between them. Will they explore their attraction? Or go their separate way?
This was a well written story , I was hooked from the start and couldn’t put it down. I recommend this book very enjoyable read. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
Loved this story
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It had a well written storyline and believable characters. Even tho Ben is considerably younger than Casey, he was totally infatuated with her. His relationship with his dad is strained, but he also is looking for approval from his family with the choice he made in going to culinary school. Casey left NYC after her breakup with a selfish boyfriend, now a famous author. She has found peace and is healing in the small town . There are moments of humor, heartbreak and tender love scenes. I recommend this book, I was not disappointed.
