What happens when the goddess meets Mr. Right…but she absolutely can’t tell him who she really is?
After leaving his job as a cardiac surgeon, Dr. Aaron Samuels needs a new purpose in his life. Wanting to help his patients even if he can’t operate, he heads to the Puerto Rican rainforest to find a cure for heart disease. He never imagined he’d meet a beautiful, mysterious woman, especially not one talking to a frog in the middle of the jungle…
Gaia—a.k.a. Mother Nature—has had it with paranormals breaking her number one rule: Never reveal your supernatural powers to humans, not even your mate. Fed up, she transports to the rainforest, happy to converse with amphibians who don’t talk back. But Dr. Samuels is a much better conversationalist, and Gaia can’t wait to help him mend all those broken hearts he told her about.
When her attempts to help only complicate things between them, Gaia begins to wonder what would happen if she opened her heart and was honest with Aaron…and herself. Maybe her number one rule has been wrong all along…
Praise for Ashlyn Chase:

Mother Nature finds her soulmate in this mythic but oddly juvenile contemporary rom-com from Chase (Tiger's Night Out). Goddesses Fate and Karma are determined to find their high-strung sister Gaia, the goddess of the universe also known as Mother Nature, a match, hoping that falling in love will help to mellow her out. Aaron Samuels, a cardiac surgeon forced into early retirement by a medical condition, hopes to continue his work outside the operating room by discovering a new heart medicine in the Puerto Rican rainforest. When Gaia flees to the same rainforest for some peace and quiet, she and Chase fall in love, but their relationship is hampered by Gaia's refusal to break her own rule and reveal her true nature to a mortal. Despite being the creator of the universe, Gaia is surprisingly uninformed about human lives and love affairs, giving her story a coming-of-age quality. Mythology buffs will enjoy the supporting cast of minor gods and muses, but readers looking for a more mature romance will grow frustrated by the heroine's childish antics.
Great Ending to a Great Series
The last book of a series I have long loved makes this a bittersweet review. The quirky cast we’ve come to know and love join together to help Mother Nature with the mother of all problems- falling in love. With a healthy balance of snark, sass, and sweet, we get to fall in love alongside the best of company. I am going to miss this series so much. Hopefully, we will see Ashlyn Chase bring a new world for us to love and enjoy to life soon.
Thank you to Ashlyn Chase, Sourcebooks, and NetGalley for allowing me the chance to read this story and share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.
