Two strong-willed people find they have more in common than expected in Need You Now, the first book Nicole Helm’s new Mile High Romance series.
Brandon Evans is dealing with unresolved family issues while struggling to manage Mile High Adventure, his Rocky Mountain vacation business in Gracely, Colorado. Lilly Preston carries her own set of burdens. That said, Lilly, who is in desperate need of a job, accepts a PR position job at Mile High. The principal component of her job is to embrace Gracely’s legend of healing, which she wants to believe in spite of the painful problems in her own life. Regardless, Lilly takes the bull by its horns and attempts to whip Mile High into shape. But in order to have free rein over the business’ PR, Brandon insists that she pass tests by experiencing the great outdoors via Mile High Adventure tours. Lilly has no idea what’s in store, especially with Brandon as her guide.
Rising contemporary romance author Nicole Helm knows how to produce a tension-driven narrative punctuated with comedy from beginning to end. Helm’s manly adventurers may be tough, but they nevertheless have funny, memorable interactions with their new employee. A perfect example of the latter is Lilly penalizing the annoying grunts made by the men of Mile High with a Grunt Jar. While the romantic and sexual scenes have their steamy moments, Helm makes sure to throw in hilariously awkward and realistic interactions into the mix. Romance enthusiasts will be pleasantly surprised with what Need You Now has to offer.
