Amanda has just recently gotten out of a relationship and she's lonely, she really thought he was going to propose but all he did was leave her for someone younger. It has caused a lot of distractions at work and so she was unprepared for a staff meeting, causing her to blurt out that there is a bear problem in Alaska and that she'd like to write about that and her partner added that maybe they could do a benefit for the area of Sitka. Amanda is gobsmacked that the idea is actually accepted and is told to run with it. So she's in Alaska for two weeks to learn as much as she can about the bear situation and perhaps she can meet the single dad in Sitka, and they can have a beneficial arrangement.
Luke is a widow, his wife died five years ago and he has been just surviving. Work, kids and all that entails is what is life is. He's fine with it, his kids are doing ok, of course, they're still devasted about their mom but they're all doing fine. When he meets the reporter from Seattle, he's suspicious but more than that he's attracted to her. Then he learns that his well-meaning sister put an ad in the paper for him, "SINGLE IN SITKA". Finding that in fact he can still be attracted to someone he tells her to set up a date. To his shock hes face to face with Amanda, the reporter.
At first, their relationship is strictly sex, lots of it but just sex. No strings attached. How long can that last though? Relationships always come with strings, people get attached even if they don't want to.
I loved this book. It was sexy and hot, Luke and Amanda had explosive chemistry. I could see this book playing out like I was watching a movie, Katy has a way of writing the scenes so that you can picture it perfectly. I can't wait to see what comes of this new series from Katy!
