Our Review

 “But that’s the thing about you. You have no problem risking your life on the regular, but you draw the line at your heart.”

5 ‘fabulous’ Stars! From the moment we started this book, our text messages and phone calls were flying back and forth professing our heady love for A Little Too Close, the second book in the interconnected Madigan Mountain series featuring A Little Too Late by Sarina Bowen (Book #1) which we loved, and A Little Too Wild by Devney Perry (Book #3) which we’re yet to read. Let’s just say the grumpy, dependable, protective, daredevil Weston (West) Madigan completely swept us off our feet. Talk about swoon!

“See? You’re the guy who shows up when he’s needed.”
“I’m the guy who does what needs to be done.”

Rebecca Yarros is such a gifted author. Her writing makes us feel as though we are in the thick of her stories, experiencing every moment with her characters. Her ability to vividly bring to life a scene means we can escape everything and lose ourselves in her words. And that certainly was the case with A Little Too Close. We could feel the snow crunching under our feet and taste the snowflakes on our tongues, whilst experiencing the emotion and angst deep in our hearts.

“Give me one night.”
“And then what? You’ll let me go?”

A Little Too Close is a smalltown roommate to lovers, grumpy hero, single Mum, romance, with breathtaking scenery centred around the Colorado Madigan Mountain Resort – warring brothers, long-held resentment, emotion, and an abundance of chemistry and passion all packed between the pages. At the crux of it all is the divine Weston Madigan, and gorgeous Calliope (Callie) Thorne.

‘Weston may have been a daredevil when it came to physical risk, but he moved with the emotional speed of a turtle.’

When a phone call from his older estranged brother Reed forces him back home to a place he vowed never to return, it’s with a heavy heart that West turns down the promotion of a lifetime and his life in the military to help Reed take the family ski resort in Summit County – Penny Ridge to the next level. He begrudgingly agrees, bit it’s not something Weston is looking forward to!

“Sometimes I think we spend our adulthoods trying to heal whatever cut us as kids.”

Business is so good, there is no accommodation for West, so he’s forced to share a house with Callie and her 10-year-old daughter Sutton. Callie and West are opposite in so many ways. After years in the military, West thrives on structure, Callie, and her daughter, not so much. Can they live together and come out with their hearts unscathed? Well, there’s quite the road ahead of them.

“Dreams change when you have kids. Their dreams are what becomes important to you.”

We adored this book. There wasn’t anything we didn’t love. From the setting to every character and their story. From the pain of long-held family resentment to the ache of loving a man too frightened to love. Every part of this story touched us in some way. The banter between West and young Sutton filled us with joy, the complicated relationship between Callie and West moved us, and the battles between Reed and West delivered gut-wrenching emotion. This story felt real in every way. We devoured it, we lived it, and we loved it! Now onto Crew’s book! Woohoo!

“I’m not used to someone taking care of me.”
“Then you’re going to have to raise your standards, Calliope.”


Nine years ago, Weston Madigan saved me. I came to Colorado penniless, heartbroken, and pregnant, searching for a fresh start. Weston gave me a job at his family’s resort, then left the next day and never returned, not even to visit.

Then I stumble in on Weston cooking breakfast shirtless—gloriously, inappropriately shirtless—in the shared kitchen of my duplex in employee housing. Given the shock on both our faces, he wasn’t expecting a roommate either, let alone two.

The growly pilot is only home to start his family’s new heli-skiing operation. I can handle being his temporary roommate, right? Chemistry and attraction aren’t impossible to ignore when you agree on ground rules. Besides, even with those gorgeous, brooding brown eyes, the guy is a walking thundercloud…until my daughter, Sutton, makes him laugh and he smiles at me. Then everything changes. Cue inconvenient heart flip.

This is only temporary.
I can’t fall for Weston.
I. Will. Not. Fall. For. Weston.
But rules go out the window when you’re a little too close.

“Just don’t fall in love with me,” I teased. “Kay.” He said.


‘Sometimes passion was a whisper, other times a roar. This time? It was a storm.’


“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

SWEET MEMORY (The Painted Daisies #1) by LJ EVANS

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
