A hot contemporary romance from the author of the acclaimed I-Team series…
Lexi Jewell left Scarlet Springs twelve years ago, vowing never to return to the small Colorado mountain town where she grew up. Now, here she is—over thirty, out of a job and with little choice but to move back in with her eccentric father. Lexi knows it’s just a matter of time before she runs into Austin Taylor, her first boyfriend and her first heartbreak. She’s determined to show him she’s over him—until he steps out of a pickup truck and back into her life, looking sexy as hell in his mountain ranger uniform.
As far as Austin is concerned, Lexi can turn her snazzy little convertible around and drive back to Chicago. After all, she ripped his teenage heart to pieces and turned her back on the town he loves. But from the moment he sees her again, he can’t get her out of his mind. Even her smile messes with his head.
When an evening of conversation turns into something else, Lexi and Austin agree to be friends—with benefits. But as Lexi starts making plans to return to the big city, Austin realizes he’ll lose her a second time unless he can show her that what she’s searching for has been right here all along.

This was a new endeavour for Pamela, her first straight up contemporary romance, but she didn’t have to worry, it’s awesome!
The story is set around the small town (my favorite!) of Scarlett Springs, Colorado, and the men and women of the Rocky Mountain Search and Rescue Team.
I always enjoy books that teach as well as entertain and this one does that in spades. We get hands-on experience with the extensive training these individuals do daily in order to save lives.
This is also a second chance romance (Have I mentioned my favorite? 🙂 ) between SAR Austin Taylor and Lexi Jewell, the one who got away.
This book has all the components of a feel good romance with just enough heart-pounding suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat.
I give Barely Breathing 5 lovely kisses. I can’t wait to see how this series pans out 🙂
