Publisher's Summary

Beautifully written, poignant, and so sexy by USA Today best-selling author Lex Martin 

How do you know whether you can trust someone?

Maggie Washington is used to relying on herself. Growing up in Iowa, her wild curls and parents who dumped her on her grandmother made it so she's never fit in. Skeptical of other people's motives, she's always been the fling or the friend. Looking to define her life after college, she's thrilled when she scores a choice summer job working in Yosemite National Park restoring habitat.

Court Thompson is a gorgeous (and bearded) forest ranger with a love-em and leave-em reputation. When he shows interest in her, she's torn. Even though she's flattered by his attention, she doubts his sincerity - and her ability to get out of the friend-zone.

Will Court be able to coax Maggie into trusting him that he's for real? Or after the summer of s'mores and skinny dipping, will he let her down like everybody else?

A romantic adventure

Maggie is trying to make sense of her life as she starts an adventure in Yosemite. She has made all men friends, to avoid ever being hurt again. Although the men show an interest, Maggie pushes them away. She is unsure what she wants, so focusing on botany is easier. In walks Court and Maggie takes a second look. Court instantly is attracted to Maggie. He slowly takes her to experience different things about Yosemite. As Maggie let's her hair down, twist and turns make her second guess herself.

The description of Yosemite is amazing. I now want to take a trip there to see it for myself. As Yosemite is being described, you can actually envision the scene and it is beautiful.

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrate this story with such chemistry that you can senae the tensions, attractions and all emotions of the characters. Each character is narrated as I would have imagined them to be. Tor Thom's barritone voice is such a compliment to Charley Ongel's sweet voice. They made this story come alive.

I would highly recommend Lumbersexual.

Visually beautiful story

Leslie McAdams always catches my attention with her self realization stories. This visually beautiful book takes us to Yosemite and through Maggie's journey to find herself. When Maggie comes to work for the summer, she plans on using her degree in botany and try to figure out what she wants to do with her life. She did not realize she may have found her calling and a handsome Park Ranger to warm her bed! I always enjoy McAdams writings, the paths she has her characters take are real and engaging. This one is particularly fun, not only for the relationship between Maggie and Court, but the visual of Yosemite as well as the fun these two have on their treks. Nothing like a good s'more and cheez-its to get you through(so much better than the squirrel, don't think I could stomach that!). Learning who she is, and discovering her path is not an easy task, and Maggie comes through the summer with a new outlook on her future. Truly a beautiful story.

Brought to life by Tor Thom and Charley Ongel, the book becomes a movie in your mind. With the incredible scenery and wonderful story, it is easy to see it with their performance. Each character portrayed has a specific voice and given it's own disposition. I love this team, you can feel the sparks fly when they narrate, always a pleasure to listen to.

What an Adventure!

The descriptions of Yosemite pulled me into this book by Leslie McAdam. The imagery was spectacular. I loved how the author described Yosemite as a combination between amusement park and nature. I found this book to be fun, steamy, humorous, and heartwarming all at the same time. The narrators, Tor Thom and Charley Ongel have such great chemistry in this book. I love how the tension, lust, and sparks are felt with this listen. Maggie and Court are the two main characters in this book who come to major self realizations. I will definitely listen to more books by the author and narrators.

This was a sweet romance set in a rustic Nature setting. I was super original and a fun read. The characters were great to get to know. I loved the interactions and adventures.

Narration was Great. Tor and Charley always give a great performance and make for an enjoyable listen.

Who knew a summer job could be such fun!

Maggie the female character has trust issues, raised by her grandmother and parents who are still deciding what to do with there lives you probably would to! So when she meets Court, the manwhore -ParkRanger that takes her breathe away in the beautiful Yosemite park and he wants you, at least for the summer? Why not, this is only a summer job, come fall she would be gone, and he can go back to Amanda, like she says “he always comes back to me”.
This novella would be excellent on an excursion to the beach or a rainy afternoon listen or read. I was given this sweet, funny and sexy story as a gift from the narrators Tor Thom and Charley Ongel, who did a fantastic job and of course the author Leslie McAdams thank you all.
PS, loved the skinny dipping scene, it shows Maggie coming out of her shell!

Great Performance

Overall, the story was kinda just meh. despite the amazing performance by the narrators, it was difficult to become engaged by the tale.

if you're looking for some top of the line ear candy, but story content isn't a concern for you then this book is totally for you

who can resist a hawt lumbersexual?

Who can resist a hawt lumber sexual? Definitely not Maggie, one of the new summer interns at Yosemite National Park. Maggie is fresh out of college and trying to decide what to do next. She has fought against the ugliness of her childhood to this point and carefully guards her heart. That is in danger when she meets hot, tattooed, & bearded Court...aka Mr. Lumbersexual. Court is attracted to the exotic looking and quiet intern and asks her out. Maggie's friends warn her that Court is known for 'loving and leaving' the summer interns, but she decides to go into the summer fling with eyes wide open...that way she won't get hurt, right? Let's not forget the jealous ex who is mean as he!!. What will become of this duo at the end of the summer? Is there an HEA in store? No spoilers...this is a fun, summer romance story that's worth the listen. Great job by the narration team.
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Sexy

Tor and Charley burn up the book again bringing the hot sexy chemistry to life. Enjoyed the story. Could really picture the natural beauty of the park as the back drop to the intense love story.

Unexpected

I haven’t read the book so the audiobook was a surprise to me. I had no idea what the story was about and I enjoyed it very much. There was a different twist to this story. Outdoor, nature, which was different to me. I loved the characters and how the story developed. It’s a brilliant story about finding who we are. The same applies to Thom. The two of them bring the perfect chemistry. A+

Love the story and the narrating :)

Ongel, as usual, did an amazing job as the narrator. Bringing character to the story and showing the emotions with her voice.
