Reeling from a sudden breakup, Casey Webb leaves Brooklyn, drives north and settles in a sleepy mountain town in upstate New York. She’s convinced she’s happy being alone—until she reads the acknowledgments in her ex-boyfriend’s hit debut novel, thanking his new girlfriend “above all”.
Good thing Ben Mailer is in town. The hot, young Brooklyn-bound chef offers the perfect distraction, and soon Casey is having the best sex of her life—on a mountain, in the lake, all over her cozy cabin. But as their weekend fling turns into something more, the demands of Ben’s family and budding career make moving to her idyllic town impossible.
Now Casey must decide what she can’t live without—her life in the mountains or the man she wants as hers. Smart, sweet and blisteringly hot, Above All is about getting lost…and finding yourself right where you belong.
A Romantica® contemporary erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Above all is a very nice read. The characters are so true to real life, it's not funny.
Ben is 26. He is in college majoring in Culinary Arts at CIA. He is young and it shows through his wishy-washiness. Does he please his parents or follow his heart?
Then there is Casey. She went through a break up a year earlier, but is still feeling off about the whole thing. When she stumbles upon Ben all she sees is a college boy way too young for her, but he has a nice bum ;) Casey is happy with her life, but she soon learns that she may still want more.
The book is well written. It felt like it did drag a little in the beginning, but surely picked up. I think the characters drove me crazy with their dramatics, but it's like that in everyday life also. My favorite part of all is Ben and his culinary abilities. I am a culinary student now and I love that I can relate.
Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new—and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t know they’d been missing.
