Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you.

In the end, all I learned was how to be strong. Alone.

Lincoln is a former Navy Seal, hiding away in the mountains in Oregon. He wants to live his life away from people. He's happy on his own, preferring the peace and quiet. Yet, the demons from his past still haunt him...

One day out, he comes across Pearl—a young woman is on a solo hiking adventure—who injures herself badly and needs his help. Her injury and a snow storm force her to hole up with him in his tiny cabin.

Things heat up between them, but he never reveals who he really is and why he lives on his own.

Can Lincoln control his desire or will he allow the ghosts of the past to catch up with him?

  • Had potential.

    Over all the story line was good. Kept me interested enough to finish. There was an alarming amount of typos and grammatical errors. That doesn’t sit right with me. Also some parts seemed too rushed, especially certain parts of the dialog. I think a little more time could have been spent painting the scenes and backdrops as well as describing certain moment and feelings. The smutty parts were just okay, those were very rushed and I wish they had been slowed down and described better. I will continue to at least the next one though because it was left on a cliff hanger
  • Loved this book

    I loved the story line. Definitely had to download the second book as well, though. It ends kind of in a cliffhanger. Sometimes the storyline felt a little rushed but I loved the characters and the situation they were in. Very action packed and romantic.

    I like the book for the most part & it was well written. However, the finish of the book closes as a cliff hanger, in which I hate. So be aware everyone, don’t read this book unless you like to read cliff hangers!!
  • Another good read!

    Okay, loved this book and can’t wait to read the next in the series! I got to say, I read the comments before I read the book and I’m completely surprised by some of them. Did you not make it past the third chapter? Yes, Pearl was what I would call defiant in the beginning. She didn’t want to take advice from a condescending man who thought she wasn’t capable of hiking up a mountain. But her demeanor changed quickly after that. So I’m not sure I understood why people thought she was b**chy or whatever. I thought her character evolved nicely. Anyways, this book is different from all the rest of the books I’ve read by Lexi (and I’ve read a lot by her!). I like how it’s a change of pace. Honestly, a very good read. Thank you!

    Just no, she is ridiculously bitchy then untrustful, then sneaky when all he has done is help. So immature and the dialogue is trite. I couldn’t even finish it I cared so little about the outcome.

  • Cliffhanger

    Not a bad book, but doesn’t really end. More like a preparation for the next book.
  • Female protagonist ruins the book.

    By Bananas4Books
    The female lead completely ruined this story. She’s written to be this inexperienced dreamer who hikes to feel close to her father when really she’s an annoying brat who refuses to listen to a more experienced hiker who’s nice enough to warn her that she’s headed towards doom. The male lead is tolerable, and the action is appreciated. All in all, Pearl ruined the book and I’d have left her hanging- literally.

    Engaging read, but the story’s not finished when the book is.
