sudden breakup, Casey Webb leaves Brooklyn, drives north and settles in a
sleepy mountain town in upstate New York. She’s convinced she’s happy
being alone—until she reads the acknowledgments in her ex-boyfriend’s hit
debut novel, thanking his new girlfriend “above all”.
Mailer is in town. The hot, young Brooklyn-bound chef offers the perfect distraction,
and soon Casey is having the best sex of her life—on a mountain, in the
lake, all over her cozy cabin. But as their weekend fling turns into
something more, the demands of Ben’s family and budding career make moving
to her idyllic town impossible.
decide what she can’t live without—her life in the mountains or the man she
wants as hers. Smart, sweet and blisteringly hot, Above All is
about getting lost…and finding yourself right where you belong.
What do you do after you fall? Evidently, you get up again and drive to the nearest secluded place you can find and set up camp. But seriously, you can’t help but fall in love with a character who just says screw it and starts fresh somewhere after ending a seven year relationship. Leaving him and everything she knows in New York behind you would think would be the hardest part. However, a day always comes when everything you think you are doing right is questioned. Despite serene views and the peaceful cabin in the woods, the day does come.
The characters are great. Both Casey and Ben are intelligent, but have their insecurities. Each of them, over time, need to build and grow to make things work. I enjoyed the age difference and it made the story all the more interesting.
The story is sweet, romantic, and has just enough sizzle to leave you satisfied by the end. The descriptive detail practically has you breathing in the crisp mountain air and smelling the coffee. It’s a great read and I’m sure you will fall in love with Casey and Ben’s story just as I did. Enjoy!
with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write
books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil,
traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored
ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma,
but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the
Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind
to try something new—and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t
know they’d been missing.
