I really enjoyed reading this book. Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series #1) by Phoebe Alexander had me hooked from the beginning and I soon found myself lost in the story. I enjoyed reading about the characters of Dr. Sarah Lynde and Army First Sergeant James McAllister. Sarah is a woman who is intelligent, a single mother, and a sociology professor. She is looking for a new friend with benefits. That is when she meets James. James is a man that is in the Army, loves to read, and never knows when his next deployment will come. He is a man that knows he will one day want to settle down but for the time being, he is just looking for a diversion. Then he meets Sarah. The physical chemistry between Sarah and James is very strong. They share a strong connection. What starts out as something casual starts to turn into something more. What does the future hold for Sarah and James? Read this book to find out. This is the first book in a series and is very steamy. Sarah is not shy about having an open relationship. James and Sarah are likable characters and I grew to care about them with each chapter that I read. There are other characters that are introduced that I enjoyed reading about as well. Sarah has a bestie that is a true friend and helpful to her. This story has both heartwarming and heartbreaking moments that had my emotions going up and down. Don’t miss out on the first book of James and Sarah’s story. I can’t wait to read the next one.
