Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series Book 1) by Phoebe Alexander
This isn’t the first book by Alexander I’ve read. This new series is great and I loved every minute of it. Mountains Wanted is the first book in the Mountain Series.
Sarah is a single mom to two wonderful kids. Meeting James at a sub place she couldn’t keep him off her mind. When she meets him again a few days later things change. The quote I chose for Sarah is: “With all due respect, let’s say your life is on the line in the heat of battle. Would you rather have a gay soldier who is one hundred percent focused and loyal to his fellow soldiers by your side, or a straight soldier whose mind is nowhere near the battlefield? The truth of the matter is people have the ability to be professional and put their recreational and sexual desires aside when needed. This ability has absolutely nothing to do with sexual orientation. It has everything to do with integrity and work ethic.”
James is home for good. He’s teaching ROTC and encourages his students to attend Sarah’s lecture. When he meets her one on one he can’t keep her off his mind. The quote I chose for James is: “Being deployed in a war zone, it’s obviously not like everyday life. In order for the men to stay focused, accomplish their missions and stay alive, it requires—more than anything else—mental discipline. If an individual loses focus and doesn’t see something they ought to have seen, it may not only get them injured but the person next to them as well. It’s imperative to keep distractions to a minimum. It’s focus and discipline that make the difference between frightened boys and professional soldiers who get the job done. That’s also why drinking and sex are discouraged while deployed.”
Highly recommended for Contemporary Romance lovers.
