Don’t look down and don’t give up.
Justin Oberman‘s credo for living his adventurous–some might say death-defying–life to the max served him well until the unfortunate outcome of a climb made him walk away from the sport he loved. A lucrative new job offer could pave the way to a more traditional life in Marietta, Montana, where his two best friends have fallen in love with the women of their dreams. But settling down always seemed more daunting than Everest and not worth considering until a mysterious lady in red walks into his life on New Year’s Eve. Suddenly, that happily-ever-after stuff Flynn and Tucker have been raving about looks within reach.
The first fall is always the hardest.
Nikki Magnesson Richards has loved Justin Oberman most of her life. First, from the safety of her brothers’ old tree house. Later, with unrequited teen-age angst. Her poorly thought out attempt to get him to notice her cost them both dearly. Now, a dozen years later, her fairy godfather boss has orchestrated the most romantic meeting possible–the Big Sky Mavericks Masked Ball for Charity. A kiss at midnight with her very own Prince Charming isn’t too much to ask, is it? But what are two star-crossed lovers supposed to do when one kiss isn’t enough?

This a sweet and steamy romance between two people that have suffered through some very difficult times in their life. I really enjoyed all the characters, especially J Angus. I enjoyed the story and would like to go back and read the other books in this series.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Tule Publishing for an honest review.
This is a test.
Debra Salonen showed us in this book how a young person,Nikki, could be so caring and love an older adult. Not only did she respect J. but she felt he was family. He in turn loved Nikki like a daughter and wanted her life to be happy once he died so he manipulated Justin and her reunion. Justin's
fears about past events had to be dealt with before they got their HEA.
