Mountain Desire (Wild Mountain Men #3) by Vanessa Vale
When Dr. Samantha Smyth confuses the town’s sexy mechanic for a patient, she gets a lesson she’ll never forget…
Being a child genius might have made Sam a doctor by twenty-two, but she’s learned nothing about men. Her world is scalpels and scrubs, not silk and seduction. Sam is used to receiving attention for her brain, not her body, but when Mac and Hardin find out she needs tutoring between the sheets, they volunteer for the job. They’re diligent in their task, ensuring she’s an expert in pleasure… with them. Only them.
Mac knows he is nothing the beautiful doctor deserves. He works with his hands. He’s rough around the edges, tattooed and older, but he wants her anyway. He and his best friend, Hardin, have spent years searching for a woman they can claim together. Hardin likes the quiet life and spends more time with horses than humans, which suits him just fine. But one taste of Sam and it’s not just passion they feel for their woman. It’s protectiveness. Possession.
When they discover Sam might be targeted by a murderer on the loose, they won’t let anything take her away. And their protective instinct reaches a new level when Hardin discovers he might just be related to the killer.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh boy! This book started with a scene that was so awkward that I laughed until I cried! It was just a foreshadowing of how much I’d enjoy this book! My emotions ran the gamut while reading, from hilarity, to shock, surprise, and even a little anger. There was so much packed into this story, I’m not sure where to start!
Sam is a doctor, but she is also a genius! Breezing through school, then college and med school, she missed so many of the life experiences someone her age has. It makes her a very naive person, but also seems to have made her more open to accepting her own desires and wants. Mac and Hardin know what they want, they just have to figure out how to make her theirs, and then how to keep her from being ripped away from them.
I love a little mystery and excitement with my romance, and this book has all of that, and more. I love how open Sam is, and how accepting of her eccentricities the guys are. The heat between them is combustible, and then just gets hotter! I love how there is a story line to each book in the series, but also a mystery that is continued through out. Definitely makes the anticipation for the next book sweeter!
