Casey Lord needs a break. Her great-on-paper boyfriend, Reed, is pressuring her to marry him, but she’s not sure if he sees her merely as an asset to help his political career. A river-rafting trip in the remote wilderness provides the perfect opportunity to clear her head... until a flash flood sweeps Casey away from her group - and straight into the arms of Jack, a mysterious man also stranded by the flooding river.
Jack won’t tell Casey his last name, and her innocent questions about his life are met with evasive answers. Yet they have to trust each other to survive, and as the pair await rescue, their uneasy truce slowly blossoms into friendship and love. They agree to keep secret whatever differences may separate them in the real world.
When rescue finally arrives, will it spell an end to their budding relationship - or can they find a way to stay in RiverTime?
I loved the first part of the book, the "river time" between Jack and Casey. In fact I really liked Jack throughout the entire book, it was Casey I was disappointed with. Admitedly I really just have a problem with wishy washy characters in general. She figures out she doesn't want to marry her boyfriend and falls in love with Jack while on the river yet immediately marries the jerk of a boyfriend when she realizes who Jack is when she gets home. She doesn't love the man and lets him manipulate her. When she does figure things out and decides she really wants Jack she is manipulated again and changes her mind again to protect her mom over something that really Jack could have taken care of as well if it came to that. I just wanted to tell her come on already. That aside, I really did enjoy this book and would read this author again.
