This Montgomery Has a Head for Business
Working for Zach Montgomery is challenging on many levels-coming from a wealthy and powerful family, he lives by his own rules and doesn't answer to anyone. But Gabriella Martine has no intention of backing down. She's used to handling stubborn men, and it doesn't hurt that Zach is smart, charismatic… and gorgeous.
And a Heart for Adventure
Zach's perfect world is turned upside down when a climbing accident leaves him broken, angry, and maddeningly dependent. In his slow quest for recovery, Gabriella is always there to help… but as Zach comes to see his beautiful assistant in a new light, he is forced to re-evaluate what it really means to be a man worthy of Gabriella's love.
♥ ♥ Pretty Little Review ♥ ♥
This is a tender and heartwarming read about two people who are overcoming some serious life issues. The author, Samantha Chase, concocts a sensitive story about overcoming a near death experience while throwing in a bit of romance to warm reader’s hearts. Readers will feel their heartbreaks, experience the emotions, and fall in love right along with the characters. Fans of Samantha Chase will enjoy this installment of the Montgomery series as it evokes feelings of love and hope.
The story is about a man named Zach who is trying to overcome a serious back injury after he fell down a mountain. While it is clear that there is physical pain to his injury, it seems his emotional recovery is what warrants the most pain for him. So when Zach is finally pushed to the brink by his family to either step back up into his job or lose it, Zach has no choice but to comply. Enter Gabriella Martine, Zach’s lovely assistant. Zach gives her a lot of problems because he is suffering emotionally from his injuries and finds she is an easy target to take his frustrations out on. But Gabriella believes in him and takes the pain he causes her because she only wants to see him get better. But when he pushes her buttons for the last time and she threatens to leave him and never look back, Zach regrets his actions. Ultimately he feels strong emotions for her and no longer wants to push her away. Soon, sparks fly and their undeniable feelings for one another can no longer be ignored. Will Zach eventually get over his pain and suffering and let Gabriella in for good? Or will the two push each other away? You’ll have to read to find out!
Samantha Chase is a wonderful writer and I believe romance lovers will enjoy her books. This one in particular is tender, heartwarming, and full of emotions. I could barely put the book down and finished it in one day. Overall, I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading the rest of the series (as I have not at this point). Readers should note that although this book is a part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. The series revolve around the Montgomery family and each member has their own story to tell.
