I’m sure you’ve heard about the lovley Jay Crownover. She’s one of my all time favorite authors. She’s written several series such as Welcome to the Point, The Marked Men, Saints of Denver, and The Breaking Point Series… The Marked Men series is my all time favorite. Rule, the first main character of this series, is my ultimate book boyfriend. I don’t need to tell you that I’ve read them all. I recommend them to everyone I know, they’re full of hot guys, independent woman and steamy romance 😉
This Holiday Season, Jay decided to surprise us all with a new read, a new series called THE GETAWAY SERIES. Well, I haven’t been able to getaway from the book. I wanted to take a minute and share with you this new amazing book and my favorite quote from it.
EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, YOU NEED TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL.
Every once in a while, you need to get away from it all.
I was a woman on the edge, shaken and shattered after a breakup that felt like it tore my entire world apart.
My best friend, sick of watching me drown in misery and melancholy, harassed me until I agreed to go with her on a week-long wilderness retreat.
She promised days spent bonding and getting in touch with our inner badasses. It was supposed to be all about the two of us roughing it and making do with the bare minimum. She assured me we were going to be pushed to our limits in ways that were unimaginable. Neither one of us could have ever guessed just how right she was.
Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements. The brochure also forgot to mention the part that warned when you left civilization behind, there was no place to pack your inhibitions and fears.
I was told that I would be facing a week where the only thing I should expect was the unexpected. However, no one mentioned that I was going to have to fight for my life…and my heart as soon as I ventured into the unknown.
I was a pro at hiding from my feelings but when it came time to face a real threat, one that could change everything, I learned I was more of a no surrender, no retreat kind of girl.
Retreat is a standalone novel, the first in the Getaway series which centers on the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women that dare to love them.
These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.
Women like you don’t have to try and destroy things, Leo. You just do, because men like me aren’t strong enough totay away and we end up wanting things the other isn’t capable of giving.
