Publisher's Summary

Jamie Beck welcomes listeners back to Sterling Canyon, Colorado, where a disgraced but charming ski instructor falls in love while trying to redeem himself.

Folks in Sterling Canyon know that small towns have long memories. Two years after the DUI that injured a pedestrian, Andy Randall is still making amends. He hopes the Christmas spirit will help him get rehired as a ski instructor, but that job will come with conditions. He can't afford another mistake, which is exactly what making a play for his former boss and friend, Nikki Steele, would be.

Nikki races down double black diamonds and hikes mountains better than most guys, unafraid of tumbling down the slopes. But trusting the guy who once shot her down could end in a fall that actually hurts, especially when she'd have to vouch for him with her boss. Still, the resort needs another instructor to handle the holiday tourists, and Andy's sexy grin and relaxed charisma make him hard to resist.

With both of their reputations now on the line, can Andy convince Nikki that the second chance he wants isn't only about the job?

OK book. Fabulous narration..


So, I just finished Duke of Desire yesterday, where the hero had a horrible scar across his face, and decided to read this. AND guess what? The heroine has a scar across her face! AND she was described as “plain” and the hero was beyond belief beautiful and in love with her. Seriously? As if that is ever going to happen. When are authors going to make both the heroine and hero plain or too plump or unattractive so the story makes more sense. (Not that I would read a book like that.)

Anyway, this was about Andy, who was arrested for drunk driving when he hit Grey, from the first book Accidently Hers. Andy managed to get his job back at the ski resort on a probationary period then some chick lied about him and he was fired, again. Nikki, who was almost his girlfriend didn’t really believe Andy when he defended himself so Andy dumped her… For a little while, anyway.

It was nice to see what happened to Andy but he deserved better than Nikki.

There was one sex scene but there was not a shred of attraction, want, lust, nothing whatsoever. Publishers tell authors that sex sells so 95% of them just throw a sex scene in and call it good. Personally, I’d rather have some kind of sexual tension throughout the book than to have one stupid sex scene.

The F-bomb was used 1 time.

As to the narrator: The best part of the entire was Kate Rudd’s narration. She does wonderful voices and great emotions.

enjoyable story and great narration!

This was a really wonderful romance! Andy made a huge mistake the night he got a DUI and it changed his life. He needs a second chance at his dream job and Nikki is the only person that can really help him. Very sweet chemistry between these two and a good story! Narration was really well done and had distinguishable voices for various characters. Highly recommend!

As good as I was hoping

Love this series and this one is didn't let me down. Love the story itself and Kate Rudd does a great job telling the story. She makes you feel it and makes you feel like you can see the story.

Too quick.

I like to listen to these stories when I drive or doing chores. Overall, the story was cute and it continued with the Sterling Canyon series seamlessly, but it felt shorter than the other stories.

Joyfully His

This has become one of my favorite books. Like the three before there are equal happy and sad moments. Jamie Beck captures me and I couldn’t put the books down. In four days I read these four amazing books.

Andy finally gets his own book!

Welcome back to the small ski town, Sterling Canyon. This is Andy's story...remember Andy? The twin of Avery, and the guy who drove drunk and plowed into Avery's now-hubby Grey. Andy is trying to get his life together and is on probation at his old job, as a ski instructor at the local ski resort. No one is a harsher critic of his past than Andy himself. He has always had a thing for Nikki, the manager of the ski school, but always felt as if she had him in the friend zone. He is desperately trying to prove that he has matured. An old fling comes into the picture and is causing some trouble. Will the town forget his past so that Andy can move on? Will Nikki overcome her own insecurities and give Andy a chance? Let's just say that there were times in this book when I wanted to give Nikki a good shake! I grew to like Andy in this book and glad that he finally gets an HEA...no spoilers who with ;-)
Sad to see the series end but this book gave a nice update on all of our couples.

This was perfect...too short

This is a contender for my favorite of the series. It was just too short. I want more. This was a perfect story.

Short Story

I didn't actually realise this was a short story (less than 4 hours compared to most of Jamie Beck's books that tend to be around 10 hours). I was rather disappointed with this offering from the Sterling Cannon series. It passed the time okay but not much actually happened and I didn't feel the spark between the characters as much as I normally do with Beck's books. I wish she had made the effort to write a full length story- this felt far too much like a filler book (and a bit of a disappointing use of a credit). Kate Rudd's narration is passable. She does fine with the females but all her male voices sound the same.
