The Cover: Could you find two sexier models??
The Plot: While I found that Dare and Jesse's story was a little drawn out, it was still a very good story. I think I have just been reading a little too many werewolf and vampire books! Rocky Mountain Home is a wonderful read set in a beautiful picturesque landscape. Having spent 3 years in a little town in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, I could almost see the pastures and fields that Vivian describes. But the story, Dare and Jesse's story is beautiful, well-written and definitely steamy at points. For a love story that has a rocky start, it has enough ups and downs to be believable, a reminder that not everything is as it seems and not every love runs perfectly; sometimes they are like a garden that needs to be tended and cared for, but in time will be beautiful and something to treasure.
The Characters: All of our characters were very well written and some like Mike and Marion, you just want to beg to adopt you, they are so loving, accepting, and forgiving. Ginny was hands down my favorite character, with her wit and I think I am going to have to start on Vivian's next series as I want Ginny's story so badly! Tamara was an easy second so I am so glad her story comes next! She was so saucy.
Was It Worth Reading: Absolutely! It was a fantastic change from some of my other books. It was an amazing finale to a great series, with a promise of something new to come. I highly recommend Rocky Mountain Home to readers of drama and romance and give it 4 out of 5 of Cupid's crossbows.
