I basically devoured this book. It's the story of April, an intern on a rock climbing documentary, and Josh, the star of both the film and the rock climbing world at large. April recently lost her father and has PTSD from witnessing his traumatic death, and Josh is rude and extremely difficult to interview. Well, at least at first.

The love story here is sweet, but fairly slow to develop (though once it does, it takes off at a sprint). In the end, the book is about more than just the specific romance; it's about how to love even when you're terrified. I felt I was hit over the head with this a little harder than necessary, but it didn't ruin the book for me.

The cast of characters is fun, the descriptions of the scenery are lovely, and I even learned a bit about rock climbing. It's a fast, breezy read about beautiful people falling in love, with wrapped-up angst and a gorgeous setting.

3 1/2 stars
