Survivalist Russ Donovan is known on TV as the “Wildest Man In The World.” The last thing this headstrong Aries guy needs is to be wrangled into a cross-promotional TV special with a popular homemaker—even a sexy little thing like Susannah Stone. Besides, the Adirondacks in the dead of winter is no place for amateurs...especially a stubborn homemaker who's determined to show him up every chance she gets.

Susannah's a working single mom who knows plenty about roughing it. She can take anything this mountain man dishes out. Now Russ and Susannah are taking their competitive rivalry to new levels, and not even the canned beef stew is safe. Then Russ and Susannah's on-camera sparks turn into a sizzling off-camera romance, and their two conflicting worlds collide. Sure, major differences can turn chemistry red-hot...they also make compromise nearly impossible.

One thing that I do know is I really like Amanda’s books. I really like reading where food comes into play in the story. All of Amanda’s books have that. Either it be the guy being a chef or the woman.

From the very beginning Russ and Susannah are attracted to each other. Russ and Susannah don’t want to admit at first. But the attraction is strong. Both have their own TV show and are very different. Russ is the star of a reality show that’s something like Man VS. Wild. And Susannah has a home cooking show. More like Martha Stewart. And these two completely opposite people have too pair up and do a show together. Which, I found I really enjoyed watching these too together.

I liked how Russ was with Susannah’s little boy, Billy. Russ really wasn’t the fatherly type, or so he thought. But add a little adorable boy and something’s change.
Overall thoughts…
If you enjoyed Amanda’s previous books then, you will more than likely enjoy this one. Although it is a bit different than her other books. So, if your wanting a fairly short book, with a bit of steam, then this would be the prefect book. I really hope Holly and Adam get a book. Those two were heating up the pages along with Russ and Susannah.
