Chicago City Girl Tackles Colorado Mountains with Sexy, Reclusive Guide.Journalist Avery Oliver heads to Colorado intent on landing the story that will jumpstart her career. Sullivan Reed doesn’t want the publicity, but he will take her help warding off a flirty neighbor. Until a storm strands them in his cabin, and Sully’s done pretending. He wants Avery—badly—but she’s a big-city girl looking for adventure, not his simple life. So why does releasing her feel like he’s lost the perfect catch?
Avery Oliver can see the byline now. Chicago City Girl Tackles Colorado Mountains with Sexy, Reclusive Guide. What better way to jumpstart her journalism career than to head out into the woods with a hunky guide? It’s all very Bear Grylls, but she’ll take it, even if it means ditching her beloved designer suits and handbags.
All Sullivan Reed needs in life is a fly rod and the roar of a river. Playing guide to a hot little reporter can’t end well…until they strike a deal that’s mutually beneficial. She’ll pretend to be his girlfriend to deflect an overly flirtatious neighbor, and he’ll help her with the article. It’s a win-win.
Until it isn’t. Turns out, the only thing Avery’s worse at than fishing is being a fake girlfriend, because every time he’s with her, he forgets it’s all pretend…

Loved this book! Sully was unique and unlike a lot of other male main characters that I have read recently. He's self-conscience, a bit shy, easily embarrassed and he doesn't date or sleep around. His ex-wife did a number on him when she left, hurting him with her words and he hasn't been willing... ...more
I loved this hero and heroine, she was klutzy and funny.
