“While this was only a short novella, I was very impressed with this debut by the author.”
~ Under the Covers
When I heard about this newest Audible Original I was really excited to try it. This manuscript was the winner of the #SoundsHot contest held by Audible in partnership with Cosmopolitan last year.
In SEARCH AND RESCUE, our heroine Wren is a rock climber who went into Search and Rescue after her older sister died in a climbing accident. The hero Clay is everything she hates. He’s a daredevil who has made a name for himself climbing without equipment.
Whenever I read a short story that has to come to some happy ending in such a short amount of time I struggle with that insta love. I was expecting that, but honestly it didn’t bother me much because it took some time for something to happen. I still really enjoyed this couple and found that the way this story developed I was hooked into it and wanted to keep reading to see what would happen. Another fun thing about this story is the setting. Part of this is set in Morocco and it was nice to see how this was incorporated into the story.
While this was only a short novella, I was very impressed with this debut by the author. I not only enjoyed the writing style a lot, but also found her characterization and conflict to be really well done. Not only for a new author but also because short stories can be hard. SEARCH AND RESCUE was interesting and kept me wanting to see what next obstacle they would face. I am interested to see what would come next from this author. If you’re looking for something short to lift your mood and entertain you, definitely pick this one up.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
