World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 😪😠🤐🙂😘
The heroine: Harper – a wilderness guide in the mountains of Montana who is asked by local law enforcement to help on a local cases where two people were murdered by being struck with one arrow each. A brutal kill shot which went clear through each of them and pinned them to the wall where they bled out.
The Hero: Lucas – after the second murder, one of the deputies finds Lucas in the forest, dressed in animal skins & furs and holding a bow and arrows. He is taken into custody that is where he first meets Harper.
Other Characters: Jak – a young boy who along with three other boys was drugged, taken to the mountains and forced to the edge of a cliff and told to do what they can to survive before the cliff fell away in an avalanche. He knew the man was bad and tried to murder him.
Mark: an agent from the Montana Investigations Bureau who is in charge of investigating the two murders near Helena Springs.
The Story: Lucas and Harper find a connection very early on in the book. He wants to understand her and she feels safe around him despite how big and wild he looks. Harper also feels the pull toward Lucas and is curious about him. Harper grew up in the foster care system and became a wilderness guide for a reason, she is looking for something and finds that Lucas is the clue she needed.
The book was told in multiple points of view (all the characters listed above have a POV). It was narrated in dual narration by Christian Fox and Chelsea Hatfield. I like both of their voices. Christian has a manly voice and speaks in an even tempo, though he narrated all of the male parts with the same voice, I still enjoyed it.
This was a very original story and I really liked it. I loved the fact that both Harper and Lucas grew up alone and had that connection. This was actually a pretty sweet love story and I loved Lucas. The mystery of what happened to him and who was behind it, as well as who was responsible for the murders was compelling and fascinating. There was also some pretty steamy scenes.
