Pause, take a breath, and glisten...

That's the better way to phrase Yasmine Brown sweating to death on her first hike, which is, obviously her punishment for being too cheap or too stubborn to buy the outdoor-loving woman she calls her

I loved every minute of this book. This is a true journey, of inner worth, life and love. This is a bit different than the usual and that grabbed me and kept me pulled in so deep I didn't want it to end. It's a switching of the roles. Yasmine is dedicated to her business, structured in life, and loyal to her friends and family. Sutton is a free spirit with an amazing heart that goes where the wind takes him. I connected deeply with Yasmine on a personal level, the way she uses humor to cover her ...more

I’ve read MANY of Xavier Neal‘s books over the years and NEVER thought anyone could come close to stealing my heart from Logan”Unbreakable” Kellar..... But Sutton almost did😮. He came thisclose to doing it. Definitely adding this one to my Xavier Neal collection 💗.

Loved it. Two complete opposite personalities but with so much passion and love. From the first moment they meet you fall in love with each of them differently and then together as a couple. Amazing.

Chemistry between the main characters Yasmine and Sutton. If you are a fan of Xavier’s other work, there are many mentions and cameos of characters from other

This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. I had heard good things about Xavier's work, I can now see why people fall victim to the characters and fall in love with them. The author has a way of pulling you in with her words. It was from page one that I was sucked into this plot. I loved the main heroine in this but god damn did I want to slap her at times. But in saying that, I felt I could relate to her, to her insecurities, her struggles, and the hero? Well, he's.. differen ...more

I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I loved this book. The heroine, Yasmine, was someone I loved and hated at the same time. She just felt so real to me. She had some of the same insecurities as me and she reacts to so many things the same way I would lol. She was just so frustrating at times but I totally understood some of the things she did. Sutton, her beau, was the same. He is someone I would call a free spirit. He lets signs and the same universe dictate his li ...more

Yasmine and Sutton are such a fun, loveable, unique, LOL bantering couple. I find Sutton to be one swoon worthy guy with his outlook on life situations. Totally 5 star high recommend.

It’s been years since my heart tried to spring out of my chest. Not even sure I’ve ever heard my soul shout so loudly at another’s.

Sutton can compromise to make his girl happy, "the desire in her voice is hard to deny. “All right.” Yasmine’s brown stare soars back upward. “We can host a game night.” She squeals in glee. “But I get to pick the games.” I liked this book, it wasn't one of my favorites by this author but it also wasn't bad. I liked the characters enough, but I just had trouble connecting with them.

This is one of those books that will steal your heart, make you laugh, have you swooning and make you shed a tear or two along the way. Yasmine and Sutton's romance was witty, clever, sweet, steamy, cute and funny. It is a feel good read that is sure to produce an effervescent effect on your heart and bring brightness to your day. That is not to say that this couple has no hurdles to overcome on the way to a HEA because trust me, they do. Drama, different lifestyles and mindsets, baggage from th ...more

This book hits you with all the feels! Yasmin is the ambitious woman that can never find time for herself. He company means everything to her, it’s what she is passionate about. She is just living day to day.
Sutton is this crazy wild spirit, he just lets life take him on a journey cause he knows that’s where he is suppose to be, and this man is sexy!! These two meet in an unpredictable way, and fate has everything planned for them. This story is about life’s journey. Forget about your past, liv

I really enjoyed this book!
I have never read a book with a hero like Sutton. He was a free spirit, hippie-like and simple swoonworthy! He spoke his mind and let his heart lead the way.
Then you have Yasmine they are the most unlikely pair yet so perfect. She is a workaholic with self esteem issues and lots of insecurities.
He is the calm to her crazy. He shows her the simple way he leads his life and helps her find the beautiful person she is. It made me melt.
She calmed his wandering traveling wa

5 Sweetly, Romantic, Free Spirited, Hot Stars!!!

I was given this book in turn for an honest review.

I love diving into a Xavier Neal book, her writing always fills me with happiness, and optimism about life; Hike, Hike Baby is no different. I was chuckling throughout and my heart was swelling with love for Yasmin and Sutton. They were like chalk and cheese, yet so perfect for each other.

Sutton brought out Yasmin’s spontaneity, he helped her to build herself up and he wasn’t afraid to push her t

How not to find your "ONE"? Fall into his hands on a hike! Ok well maybe that's the way to do it! So first off {I don't read blurbs etc.} I thought this book was about football, uhm yeah, no! Yasmine seriously needs a life, she's all about and only about her work. So the Shaws yeah those Shaws take her out for a a day, and she falls for the man of her dreams, yeah no not that easy. But she did fall and a Hottie stopped to help her, man bun and all! He's from the magical land of Doctenn. Every wo ...more

I loved this book so much. Yasmine's character spoke to my soul so much. I have/had the same insecurities she has. Being to tall, not small, never feeling dainty or wanted. And to see her flourish and find love and happiness is such an inspiration!! And Sutton! All I can say is I'll take one! So sweet, loving and honest! This is probably the most relatable stories I've ever read by Xavier and all I can say is, Thank You! For showing heroines in all shapes and sizes. I recommend this all day, eve ...more

This book will hook you from the beginning! It's funny, romantic and down to earth. These two work so well together and yet they are the complete opposite of each other. This book has such a down to earth spiritual feel to it you'll feel better after reading it.

This book is a standalone.

"Hike Hike Baby" is a romcom full of heart and human truths. It is chock full of emotions and love.

We first meet Yasmine in "Must Love Logs". She is the owner of Yasmine's Yummies with an affinity for polka dots.

Sutton is a world traveler with a love of different cultures. He is a glorified hippie with an old soul.

Separately, on paper these two do not match but when a chance encounter happens both their lives are thrown for a loop. Sutton is very much guided by his

Get ready for a different type of love story! This was my first read from this author and I had some mixed feelings on it. It was definitely different than most romance storylines, but towards the end it started clicking for me. Yasmine has made a focus in her life on furthering herself professionally, but has had terrible luck in the relationship department. Out of the blue she meets Sutton, who is the complete opposite personality-wise from Yasmine, but this is definitely an opposites attract ...more

Two great things about Xavier Neal's books is how they are completely real and how characters make cameo appearances (or get their own book) after being in other series. Real life situations, real insecurities, real family life drama, and real love can be expected in any book by this amazing author.

Hike, Hike Baby is no different. This book showcased the relationship of Sutton and Yasmine. We got to know Yasmine a bit in Must Love Logs. Sutton and Yasmine are complete opposites yet both are rea

What an adorable story!
The push and pull between these two characters, Yasmine and Sutton, was adorable and fun. Watching them make compromises on how they lived to meet the other half way was sweet. Going through the experiences of making their relationship work, despite the fact that they're so different was perfect. Definitely a fun read.
Oh, and let's not forget the little cameos from characters I'd previously read about - it's one of my favorite parts!

Loved every minute of it. Opposites attract. Yasmine is an independent woman with a flourishing business and she believes thats all life has in store for her. Sutton is a free spirited man who goes with the flow of life until something, or should I say someone, stumbled into his life. I loved their interactions and the message in the story. It doesnt matter how much money you make, how much you weigh, where you come from or anything like still deserve love.

Learning to love yourself and follow the universe is a beautiful thing. Sutton and Yasmine are so different but from the beginning you are rooting for them. You want them even though it seems impossible overcoming obstacles rooting for love and acceptance. Learning that happiness sometimes just happens when you least expect it. I find myself amazed that I loved this book as much as I did maybe because I can see myself in both of the characters.

Recommends it for: EVERYONE
Opposites definitely attract in this fun story. Yasmine is a very successful business owner with lots of personal insecurities. Sutton is a success in his own right – not necessarily in business or a career – but in life itself. Yasmine doesn’t have much time to herself because of work. Sutton makes time to do the things he wants to in spite of work. Yasmine doesn’t like to hike. Sutton loves hiking. So, it’s a good thing Yasmine decides to give in and go hiking when her best friend and employee ...more
