Review & Tour: Above All by Rebecca Brooks

Above All
by Rebecca Brooks
Tour Organizer: N K Author Services

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

My Review:
I absolutely adored this one. It was very sweet with some sexy scenes. It was a great story that captivated me and kept me reading it straight through the night.
I adore Casey. I really connected with her and wanted her to be happy. There was something very relatable about her. She really thought that she was happy with her life but only to really find out that she was just content.
I liked Ben a lot. He could be frustrating at times but I could also really relate to him and his situation. He wanted to please everyone even at the cost of his own happiness. Him and Casey really fit well together.
This was almost like a coming of age story but that characters are all adults. It was all about growth and that no matter your age you still are growing as a person and still finding themselves.
It was very well written and an extremely fast read. I definitely plan on adding this author to my watch list.

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.
