Keely Andersen hasn’t visited her hometown more than a handful of times in the last ten years, but when her doctoral research sends her back to Marietta for the immediate future, she can’t wait to reconnect with the community and the mountains she missed so much. Of course, nothing goes as planned, and Keely’s truck breaks down a few miles outside of town. When help arrives, she finds herself face to face with her brother’s best friend – the guy she used to call big, bad and gorgeous – Jonah Clark.
Still settling back into Marietta after a harrowing stint as an army helicopter pilot, Jonah Clark plans to spend a few days hiking the local mountains to prepare for his job as a pilot for Crawford County’s Search and Rescue team. When he stops to help a stranded driver, Jonah is shocked to find his best friend’s younger sister is the one behind the wheel. Only now, instead of the geeky teen he remembered, Keely is all grown up with curves he can’t resist.
Though the sparks of attraction ignite immediately, they're hesitant to act because of their shared past. But when a project dear to their hearts is threatened, and a boy is lost on Copper Mountain, Keely and Jonah drop everything to fight for what matters, including each other.
Daring the Pilot
This was an awesome story.
Jonah was a great alpha male character. He is a tough guy and a softie all in one. He gives so much to help and protect others. Keely is the nerdy little sister of Jonah's friend from high school. But she has grown up and there's definitely chemistry. I loved Keely's drive and her heart. She is so smart and caring. She and Jonah made such a great pair. I loved reading about them.
rescued by love
Jonah rescued Keely twice, but being her brother's best friend, he's always kept his distance. But, this time the desire is too much. A few obstacles get in the way, and they must find a way back to each other before it's too late.

The Men of Marietta series is getting better by the book. Keeley and Jonah are my favorite characters of the series so far. This book will not disappoint.
