Review: Mountains Wanted
Mountains Wanted by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This meaty novel was an awesome read. Sarah had a great but complicated life- she was a single mother of 2, a PhD professor, and a believer of open relationships. She has been happily dating fellow professor Pawel rather chastely, but when she meets Lt James McAllister, he set off all of her lust alarms. Studying sexuality and relationships is her profession, so Sarah can look at a situation objectively and evaluate it. However, she has a hard time evaluating her pull to James. Pawel is delightful, but he is married with a family in Poland. James is a bit younger and they start their relationship off as friends with benefits, but James is not very good with the friends part. They struggle to define or not define what their relationship is. When James gets called back into service, they will have even more decision to make.
This was not a cotton candy book-it was a full delicious meal of love, pain, conflict, and happiness. There is a sequel and I've just started it! Great read.
