Just when Carrie Anderson’s life doesn’t seem like it can get any worse, she crashes her rental car in the one place she never wanted to return to… home. And while being rescued from certain death is a good thing, being stranded with her grouchy host leaves a lot to be desired in the comfort department. But there is something about Jake Turner that has Carrie second guessing every last assumption she ever made about him…
Carried Away was a sweet and entertaining, slow burn romance about going home and finding happiness your own way. After Carrie was fired from her job, her life just keeps taking one hit after another. But nothing prepared her for meeting Jake, the gruff and mysterious man who rescues her from a snowstorm, and then worms his way into her heart, one snarky encounter after another…
Carrie is a journalist who finds herself without a job, or any promising prospects in her career, at all. Returning home to help her father with the family business, the last thing Carrie expects to find in cold and unwelcoming upstate New York is a man who sets her soul on fire.
Jake is a reclusive, ex-NHL player who has a talent for painting and a desire to be left alone. But meeting Carrie slowly changes Jake’s dour outlook on life and he can’t seem to find a way to keep avoiding her when all he wants to do is kiss her…
This was a great read! Sweet, sexy and funny, Carrie and Jake’s love story has a few bumps and messes along the way, but finding each other will completely change the trajectory of their lives as they know them. With a delightful chemistry and an adorable, albeit sometime strained rapport, Carrie and Jake were a couple you could easily root for.
I loved the serene and picturesque setting of Lake Placid, and the very on-point pandemic quips were the lighthearted references that I absolutely needed in this surreal time for reading and basically, just existing.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
