Aelissm Davis figured she would eventually return home to Northstar, Montana, but not like this—out of options, chased to the secluded valley by an obsessive former friend and troubled by memories of her dead fiancé. When a call from her stalker makes it clear he wasn’t deterred, Aelissm asks her overprotective uncle for advice. His decision to send Patrick O’Neil to keep her safe might become an even bigger problem. Pat is a haunted man with a kind smile and sad eyes. Aelissm knows he will leave, but there is something irresistible about him. He could be the best thing to ever happen to her… if she can convince him to stay.
This book begins with Aelissm Davis needing help because she is being stalked. Her former friend won't leave her alone, and when she runs from him, he still finds her. So she calls her uncle for help. Her uncle has a friend Patrick, who is his employee but also a dear friend. He thinks Patrick needs a vacation, so he asks him to go stay with Aelissm to help with her stalker situation, but to also relax.
While Aelissm and Pat are living together they start to form a very good friendship that leads to more. But neither one are sure how they can continue their relationship when it's all over.
Aelissm was a major witch to everyone in the book. Sometimes she was nice, but other times I thought she was selfish, and rude. Especially when it came to certain things with Pat. I just didn't get her, and I didn't like her at all.
Then there is Pat who is really sweet, but I just didn't like him either. I felt like a lot of the stuff he went through was stupid, and just didn't fit his personality very well. I could see it happen to a different kind of man, but not him.
Next thing I didn't like about the book was the whole Adam being a "stalker." Seriously that was just lame in the end. It seemed suspenseful at first but then it just got stupid.
I did like the idea of the story, and writing was wonderful. And the end was pretty good too. But I didn't like the rest of it so I have to say overall I didn't really like the book. It just wasn't for me.
