This is book 1 of The Mountain Series. In this first book we are introduced to the main characters, Sarah and James. Sarah is a single mom with two kids doing all the normal things, work and taking care of her kids. When she meets James. This book is a great introduction to a good series and I can’t wait for the next book. It has good love scenes and a good story line. You will enjoy this and I personally can’t wait for the next book.

I loved Dr. Sarah Lynde’s character. I loved that she is a strong single mother that seems to know what she wants. I learned a lot in this story through Sarah’s and her best friend, Rachael’s relationships. I knew right away that I wanted to root for Sarah and James, but there were a few times that I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. I can’t wait to see how their story continues in the next book.

Phoebe Alexander outdid herself again. Mountains wanted is a story about crave, desire, and pure sex appeal. The characters were great and very relatable. I love the way Alexander writes and the way all of her books that I’ve read so far draw me in. I recommend this to anybody who needs a heart racing, hot novel.

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.

Mountains Wanted by Phoebe Alexander is the first installment to Ms. Alexander’s new series Mountains. Personally reading anything by Ms. Alexander is like catching up with a long-lost friend. Her dialogue is so easy to read and comprehend, her characters are fascinating and relatable, and her story line in Mountains Wanted leaves her readers wanting more. I was so excited for this book and it was so good that I devoured it in one sitting. This contemporary romance had everything I could want including passion, intrigue, and high-strung emotions. But it was also funny, sexy, and massively entertaining. After devouring this book in one sitting so need book two like now, I just have to know how the story continues.

I am quite familiar with this author and her work, so I knew what to expect. And it was HOT! And steamy. Then again, that’s her style of writing. She is extremely thorough and detailed in her writing and that includes her sex scenes as well. Not that I mind at all. As with all her books, they are very quick reads for me because once I pick them up I don’t want to put them down. This one ended in a cliffhanger so I know that she will continue where she left off. I am just not sure what will happen. I can’t wait to find out.

I was not prepared for the amount of steam in this contemporary romance, but I’m not saying that’s a bad thing! 😉 There were definitely some pearl-clutching scenes.
Sarah is a professor of sociology and James is in the Army. They meet and have an instant connection and when they are together intimately, they both feel like it feels so normal and that it’s just right.
Sarah is polyamorous, which was a lifestyle that was new to me to read about. She loves sex and isn’t ashamed to admit it. She’s not looking for a relationship, just a friend with benefits.
James is accepting of Sarah’s lifestyle, and even explores things himself. He agrees to a friends with benefits arrangement, but when no clear rules were set, things become murky.
Sarah wasn’t supposed to fall in love but realizes that she has done just that. She finds herself having a hard time knowing that James has also found himself in love with another person, despite his and Sarah’s FWB arrangement.
With an impending deployment, there are some tough decisions that need to be made. Will James choose Maggie, the high school sweetheart with whom he recently reconnected back home? Or will he choose Sarah, the woman he’s grown to love over several months?

4 out of 5

Mountains Wanted by Phoebe Alexander is a delicious, emotional ride through finding love in the least expected places. Dr. Sarah Lynde is a professor and single mom. Sarah, through her friendship with Rachel, discovered a love of sex and isn’t afraid to go after who she wants.

Sarah meets 1st Sgt. James McAllister at a panel discussion on gays serving in the military. James is everything that Sarah could want in a partner, tall, strong, sexy, intelligent. And, a few things she doesn’t, poor at communicating, looking at redeployment. The connection Sarah and James share is unlike anything Sarah has felt before. When Sarah offers James the chance to be friends with benefits, James quickly agrees. What happens when Sarah wants more? Is James willing to change the nature of the relationship?

Sarah is a single mom of two kids who she is trying to raise with the help of her mother and her best friend. Sarah’s ex decided, Daniel, to disappear 3 years ago. Sarah helped the kids pick up the pieces and move on. Abby is now 15 going on 40. Abby faces decisions about relationships and adolescence with wisdom beyond her years. Owen is 10 and enjoys asking sex education questions to annoy his sister. Owen has a heart as big as the Rocky Mountains. Now Daniel has emerged with a new wife and son and wants back into the kids’ lives. Will Sarah be able to hold all the pieces together?

James is finding his way in Sarah’s world. James doesn’t know if Sarah’s world is where he fits. He knows he wants a wife, kids, a family some day. He thinks he is just about ready to go for it but is facing deployment, again. A decision has to be made. Is James willing to look for the family he wants with Sarah? Is there a place for Sarah in James’ life when he gets back from deployment?

Phoebe Alexander takes you and your emotions through all the peaks and valleys. It’s a wicked climb! I can’t wait for the rest of the series to find out where life takes Sarah and James.

This book includes descriptions of a polyamorous lifestyle and may not be for all readers.

Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series Book 1) by Phoebe Alexander

I knew going in that this book was a part of a series and I guess technically a cliffhanger so I can only be mad at myself for having to wait to find out what happens next, thankfully I won’t have to wait too long since the series has seven books released.

I got very frustrated with Sarah several times, some of her behaviors were those I have come to expect from younger female characters but with her history I can see where she would have some trust issues.

I love Sarah’s kids and Rachel and envy her openness and ability to be herself without fear or concerns.

I will be starting the next book as soon as I get a chance to.  My lack of patience won’t allow me to wait too long.   Especially since I have loved every single book I have had the pleasure of reading by Ms. Alexander

If I could give a million stars I would, I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book!!!! It was definitely a book I could not put down. Dr. Sarah Lynde’s character is strong and bad azz in many ways. She is a provider to her two children and balances being a professor. When she meets Lt. James McAllister at her speaking engagement, I knew there would be sparks. Boy oh boy was I right. The story unfolds when they get together there is so much sizzling heat. James is torn between what he wants and what is right in front of him. There are many ups and downs between James and Sarah when it comes to matters of the heart and feelings. What does James? You will have to read and find out. The ending….AHHHH … I need book 2 ASAP :).
