Since her divorce, Willa Hayes has thrown herself into her work as a nurse practitioner in the remote town of Stony Creek, Alaska. She's regained her self-confidence and her heart is almost healed. Then her newfound peace is shaken by the arrival of sexy flyboy Liam Reynolds. Willa can't deny she's instantly, intensely attracted to him—even if she's convinced he's yet another Mr. Wrong.
Liam has his own reasons for fleeing to the isolation of the north, and a relationship is the last thing he wants. He wasn't counting on being drawn to the pretty nurse who accompanies patients on his flights to southern hospitals.
Fortunately, the temptation—and the desire to avoid anything serious—is mutual. So the pair comes up with an arrangement: sensual, steamy, no-strings fun. But when things heat up on a cold Alaskan night, the rules of the game may change forever...

Crystal’s Thoughts:


Two years ago Willa Hayes escaped to Alaska from an abusive marriage and a heart-breaking loss. Now a nurse practitioner for several small and underfunded clinics Willa lives a secluded life helping those in need, just the way she likes it. When new medical rescue pilot, Liam Reynolds, arrives for an emergency flight Willa’s neat little world is shaken up. Rich, gorgeous and arrogant, Liam is everything that Willa has avoided since her ex-husband. But despite their similarities, Willa can’t help be drawn to Liam. That doesn’t mean she is going to trust him however. When 'just fun' turns into something more will these two be able to overcome their tortured pasts to reach for the possibility of love? 


North of Heartbreak was a fantastic and quick read set in the wilds of Alaska. Two wonderful and well written characters, Liam and Willa were easily relateable. Their chemistry felt real and their relationship moved at a believable pace. The secondary character of Jason, Willa’s friend and Liam’s uncle, added a nice touch to the story as well. A few steamy scenes and some mild suspense, the twist towards the end was pretty predictable but still capturing in regards to tying the story together. 


Great quickie for contemporary romance fans!

Great review--and I totally agree, a quick read, but a great choice for a sweet romance! :) Loved that it was set in Alaska like that, and I could tell that the author had a passion for what she was writing about. :D The cover is nice as well, I really like it!

Enjoy,
