Story Overview:
Oz: Escaping the international modeling scene to design my own fashion collection is the first step to shucking my bobble-headed supermodel reputation and proving to the world I’m more than just a pretty face. But the minute I have to accept roadside help from the sexy man next door, I feel like the airhead people think I am. And what’s worse, the man clearly doesn’t think I’m worth the time of day.

But despite trying to ignore my attraction to the mysterious doctor, I can’t help but be drawn to him. With every moment spent together, I begin to realize he’s hiding more than just some details of his past. He has one foot out the door.

As soon as I start to feel like everything might be coming together for me, I realize the man I’m falling in love with isn’t who I thought he was.

Jake: After three years on the run for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, I’ve finally found a seemingly safe place to settle in Haven, Colorado. With friends, a job, and a cabin in the woods, I have everything I need to live a simple life without drawing attention to myself. Everything’s fine. Fine.

Until I meet my new neighbor. The gorgeous man is anything but subtle and brings color to my life that I didn’t know was missing. But I learned years ago that falling in love with someone wasn’t an option anymore when simply being seen with me could have dire consequences. It’s time for me to run again, but I wonder if it’s safe to stick around just long enough for a taste…

Just when I begin to realize Oz is the missing piece to bring me back to life after years of hiding, my past catches up to me and throws everyone around me into danger. I know I should run, but what if it’s time to finally stop running and make a stand, once and for all?

My Review:
I love this series, but I think this has been my favorite book in it so far. Oz and Jake are just such an unlikely couple, but that's what makes them so much fun together. 

In the beginning, Oz is super high maintenance. He's an elite model, but he's here trying to prove something to himself and to others who've underestimated him. But it's a really steep learning curve since he's living pretty much in the wilderness with only Jake between him and a lot of trouble.

But Jake wants NOTHING to do with Oz. While the guy is gorgeous, he's also a lot of trouble that Jake can't handle. He's not a guy made for commitment or even a fling. He can't get attached. Jake is a mysterious conundrum. It's obvious fairly quickly in the book that something has happened in his past that he's running or escaping from. He doesn't talk about anything all. 

There were a lot of twists and turns to the story and quite a bit of action that I wasn't expecting. I loved that. 

It's a great book. I definitely fell in love with both Jake and Oz. They're amazing characters. I definitely recommend this one.
