Book Summary (per Amazon)
A freak ski accident brings nineteen-year old Mia Kinney within minutes of death. Hurt and scared, Mia is calmed by the southern drawl and clear green eyes of her rescuer. 

Twenty-one year old Dylan Blackburn is one of the first Ski Patrol members on the scene. As his patient is airlifted to the local trauma center, he can’t shake her from his thoughts. 

As Mia fights for her life, Dylan, is haunted by the blonde hair beauty, and knows he needs to make sure she’s going to be okay. 

With a troubled past Dylan has vowed never to completely open himself up to another girl, but Mia continues to knock down every wall he’s constructed. When his past arrives at his front door and threatens once again someone that he loves, will Dylan be able to save Mia yet again? Or will he be too late this time? 

A story of love, friendship, and the determination to turn a horrible experience into something worthwhile. 

My Thoughts
I loved this book.  From the beginning I enjoyed that this book spoke from all of the character's perspectives.  MH brings all the emotions in this book.  I gasped, cried, laughed, got tense, irritated and happy during the different aspects of this story.  The characters of this story were all full bodied and relateable.  The relationship component between Dylan and Mia was clear from the get go, but what I loved was all the side stories that just strengthened their bond.  

After I finished the story I was thrilled to see that Collin and Bailey had their own story.  This story does not focus on them, but gives enough information that I wanted to know what they went through, what caused Mia to say something to him, etc.  I am so glad I read this book and was introduced to this author.  I think anyone looking for a well developed story that involves relationships, suspense, friendships, a wee bit of tragedy and humor will thoroughly enjoy this story.  I know after finishing this story and doing a bit of research (seriously read the last few pages after the story ends!!) I know this book is part of my monthly favorites and I will be reading more from MH!
