Review: "Temptation Ridge"
Series: Virgin River #6
Genre: Contemporary Romance
At twenty-five, after five years as her mother's caregiver, it's time for Shelby to experience freedom and adventure. Time for travel, college and romance. But when she visits Virgin River, she runs into Luke Riordan, decidedly not whom she has in mind. A handsome Blackhawk pilot, Luke exited the army after twenty years, four wars and having been shot out of the sky three times. At thirty-eight he's tough and jaded. His major was in one-night stands, with a minor in commitment avoidance.
Technically, these two are all wrong for one another. But sometimes what you want and what you need are two different things…two very good things.
I always love reading this series, it is like going home to a bunch of friends that you haven't seen for a long time. The couple of this book were so very sweet, especially Shelby. We had met her in earlier books and I really felt sorry for her situation. Watching these 2 pussyfoot around each other was so much fun, Shelby really knew what she wanted, but Luke was so reluctant, but Shelby finally wore him down.
We also had such bigger issues that the town had to deal with, things that caused the town to come together in sadness and rescue. The events bring about big changes to the town, some that we see right away and some that will have repercussions in the community for years to come.
And because Virgin River never had enough babies or romances we get plenty of those outside of the main couple. Those extra romances brought about some great scenes and lots of fun.
I can't wait until I can visit Virgin River again!!
