Completely Series: New York #3
Published by Loveswept on September 26, 2017
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Beneath her whole “classic English beauty” appearance is an indomitable spirit that has turned Rosemary Chamberlain into something of a celebrity mountain climber. But after an Everest excursion takes a deadly turn, Rosemary is rescued by her quick-thinking guide, New York native Kal Beckett. Rosemary’s brush with death brings out a primal need to celebrate life—and inspires a night of steamy sex with the rather gorgeous man who saved her.
The son of a famous female climber with a scandalous past, Kal Beckett is still trying to find himself. In the Zen state of mind where Kal spends most of his time, anything can happen—like making love to a fascinating stranger and setting off across the world with her the next morning. But as their lives collide in the whirlwind of passion that is New York City, the real adventure is clearly just beginning. . .
Ruthie Knox is an auto-buy, go-to author for me in contemporary romance. It’s crazy how she does it. The characters aren’t all realistic or ordinary which is something I find more believable. Some are rich, wildly successful people and some famous people. But it isn’t about the money or the power. Although, I prefer the strong women she writes. It’s about the ideas, the hopes and dreams, and their FEELINGS. Those are authentic. They aren’t all good or bad; they have both tendencies, like real people.
Mostly these people are a mess. They are in the most difficult, awkward, and unhappy situations in their work and / or personal life. The relationships sometimes seem unworkable, for various reasons, and it hurts because you care. You want the HEA. And then really, it is simple. Love. LOVE is Completely.
When the primary focus is love and not the other stuff, everything works. Who doesn’t want someone who loves them, who supports them (not with money), encourages and accepts who they are? This isn’t to say everything is easy, or goes well all the time,, but loving completely as the first choice makes every other decision easier.
It was amazing to see the characters from other stories in the New York series. Even the secondary characters are vibrant with life. Ruthie Knox, you you engage my mind and my heart is caught as well. Truly, Madly and Completely, all the are highly recommended. Go, read them.
