Bailey Moore has an agenda: skiing in the Rockies, exploring castles in Europe, ballroom dancing in Argentina. Now that she has a second lease on life, she’s determined not to miss a thing. What she doesn’t realize is that item #1 comes with a six-foot-one ski god hot enough to melt a polar ice cap. She doesn’t want to miss out on him either, but Hudson Kincaid isn’t the type of guy to love and let go. And as gorgeous as Cedar Ridge is, she’s not planning to stick around. As head of ski patrol at his family’s resort, Hud thinks he’s seen it all. But never has he run into someone like Bailey. She might look delicate, but her attitude is all firecracker. And her infectious joy touches something deep within him that he’s been missing far too long. Now he’ll just have to convince Bailey to take a chance on her biggest adventure yet . . . something rare and all kinds of wonderful.

I really enjoyed the first book in the Cedar Ridge series, Second Chance Summer and after reading an except of My Kind of Wonderful, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and seeing the cover, I have zero regrets! My Kind of Wonderful is a beautiful, brilliant read. Bailey is an amazing character and I really felt for everything she went through. Hudson is a great character too but for me it was all about Bailey and I seriously loved this book! Highly recommend and it’s a book I will definitely be re-reading, again and again.
Her down jacket was sunshine yellow, her helmet cherry red. She sat with her legs pulled up to her chest, her chin on her knees, wearing ski boots as neon green as neon green could get and staring contemplatively at the heart-stopping view in front of her.

Cedar Ridge #2
Contemporary Romance
22nd December 2015
After an overseas mission goes wrong, Army Special Forces officer Jacob Kincaid knows where he must go to make things right: back home to the tiny town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. All he needs to scrub away his painful past is fresh mountain air, a lakeside cabin, and quiet solitude. But what he discovers is a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock. Sophie Marren has nowhere else to go. She’s broke, intermittently seasick, and fighting a serious attraction to the brooding, dishy, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy who’s now claiming her dock. Something about Jacob’s dark intensity makes her want to tease—and tempt—him beyond measure. Neither one wants to give any ground . . . until they realize the only true home they have is with each other.
Nobody But You is the third and final book in the Cedar Ridge series and honestly it was my least favourite book in the series. I couldn’t warm up to Jacob, at all. He annoyed me a lot and I kept wanting him to get his act together. Also while I loved Sophie, I didn’t love Sophie and Jacob together. While I did think Sophie helped Jacob and made everything better for him, I sometimes didn’t want Jacob for Sophie.
However, it was just as sweet a read as the previous two books in the series and it was a really sweet ending for the series.
My one little peeve about this series though is it would have been nice to have a Jenny and Gray novella and also a novella or full length story for Kenna too because her romance just get’s briefly mentioned and I would have preferred more.
Overall I really enjoyed this series and highly recommend book one and book two!
Sophie Marren parked her ex-husband’s boat, tied it to the dock with knots copied off a YouTube video on her phone, and flopped to her back on the fancy sundeck, trying to will away her seasickness.
