Goodreads Description:

Katie Malone and her twin boys’ trip along the beautiful mountain roads to Virgin River is stopped short by a tire as flat as her failed romance. To make matters worse, the rain has set in, the boys are hungry and Katie doesn’t have the first clue about putting on a spare. As she stands at the side of the road pondering her next move, she hears a distinct rumble. The sight of the sexy, leather-clad bikers who pull up beside her puts her imagination into overdrive.

Dylan Childress and his buddies are on the motorcycle trip of a lifetime. But the site of a woman in distress stops them in their tracks. And while the guys are checking out her car, she and Dylan are checking out one another.

In one brief moment, the world tilts on its axis and any previous plans Katie and Dylan might have had for their futures are left at the side of the road.


My Review:
This was my first Robyn Carr book and while I haven't read any of the rest of the series I didn't feel lost at all with starting this book. Each new book has a whole new set of characters while still giving you glimpses into the characters from previous books, which was really nice.

This was a really sweet story. I really liked Katie and how strong and independent she was. I love that she didn't have to depend on a man for her own happiness. That she was willing to do what needed to be done to take care of her and her children but at the same time also willing to let others help her out when she needed it.

Her little boys were adorable and I loved Katie's interaction with them throughout the whole book, very realistic and not over done in the least.

Dylan was a nice character but I just didn't find myself loving him. He wasn't really swoon worthy and while he did redeem himself in the end I just didn't, I don't know. I guess his character maybe just could have been better.

This was a great read though and all of the characters were a lot of fun to get to know and I know that I will definitely pick up another of Carr's books in the future.
