Ella Abbott has long been secretly in love with Gavin Guthrie. A few recent encounters have only added to her infatuation, especially the kiss they shared at her sister's wedding. It doesn't matter to Ella that Gavin is in a bad place. He says there's no hope for a future with him, that he has nothing to offer her. But all Ella cares about is the love she feels.
It's been seven long years since Gavin lost his brother. He'd kept himself under control and moving forward until his brother's beloved dog died and his brother's widow re-married. Since then, he's been drinking, fighting, and even getting arrested. It seems the only time his demons leave him alone is when Ella is around.
Gavin knows it wouldn't be fair to drag Ella into his darkness, but when she inserts herself into his life, what choice does he have but to allow her to soothe his aching heart?

I'm an avid audiobook listener. I love romance novels, occasion fiction, and rarely sci-Fi.
Perseverance, Love, Hot!
There are four or five other books in this series and they're all really good. Jill Shalvis, Belle Andre, and Kristen Proby write along this style and are all equally good IMO.
She brought life to the characters and kept the book moving along verses reading in Monotone which I hate.
Yes but if I say what it is, it'd ruin the experience for anyone wanting to read the book.
I haven't been disappointed with any of Marie Force's books.
Another great book by Marie Force. Can't get a better narrator than Ms. Traister. Had my attention from the very beginning and never lagged through the end. Can't wait for the next installment.
The wisdom is reaching far beyond what we see. Delight in the journey
The fifth book in the Abbott family Green Mountain series, this one features second daughter Ella and her longtime crush Gavin Guthrie. Gavin is the younger brother of Caleb Guthrie, Ella's sister Hannah's deceased husband who was killed in Iraq. Though the death is now seven years past Gavin still hasn't gotten past it and spends far too much time in depression, drinking and occasionally fighting in bars. It would seem that he would be a bad bet for any sort of relationship; particularly the long term type, but Ella seems determined that he's the only man for her. I've read or listened to all of the author's various series' and thus far I've found this one to be far superior to any of her others. All the books in this series are titled after Beatles songs, though I don't think I've ever heard this one. Though these books can be listened to as stand alones, they can best be appreciated if listened to in order; besides the best book in the series is the first on "All You Need Is Love."
I have read all of the Green Mountain Series books so far and they are great love stories that keep you wanting more. I have given every book in this series a 5 STAR rating. I can't wait until the next book comes out. Reading Love Stories like this makes you wish there really was a true place like The Green Mountain it sucks you in so much. All of the books I have read so far of Marie Force are Fantastic!!!
I also love the narrator, Christina Traister for the books too. Christina has a great laugh that she incorporates in the story too, I find myself laughing like that at times it's so contagious. The way Christina lowers her voice when Gavin and Ella are making love, you feel like you are right there with them. I can't wait to listen to another book read by Christina. That's what makes a great story even better and awesome!!
The Green Mountain Series are definitely worth the credit and I would highly recommend it if you love great romance stories and really great love scenes between two lovers.
