Review: Freefall by Jill Sorenson



Park ranger Hope Banning's plans for a little R & R are put on hold when a plane crashes at the top of a remote mountain. Hope will have to climb the summit and assess the situation. And the only climbing partner available is Sam Rutherford- the enigmatic man she spent a night with six months ago.


Ever since Sam lost his girlfriend in a falling accident, he insists on climbing solo. But Hope and any potential survivors need his help. As Sam and Hope set out on an emergency search-and-rescue mission, he realizes the sparks still sizzle between them. And when they learn a killer is among the survivors, they must place their trust in each other for a chance at happiness.

4 flames for Freefall.

What do you get when you put together four characters each with a big load of baggage, add in some drug dealing, white water rafting, mountain climbing, car chases and a dash of romance? Freefall.

I really enjoyed this. There was a ton of action, which I love, and the pacing supported it very well. The first 75% of the book is pretty much non-stop action, with plenty of twists and turns I didn’t expect. I thought the action scenes were well-written and exciting, and it was hard to put the book down.

As for the romantic elements of the book, I found the relationship between Hope and Sam to be believable. They are both hiding from the things they don’t want to face, and both had a sense of honor that brought them together. There was chemistry between them, and I didn’t have any issues with it when the “L” word came up. Javier and Faith made an interesting couple as well, and their part in the story was a pleasant and welcome surprise. The author did a good job of making me like the “bad guy”.

This was a fun summertime read. If you like action adventure with a touch of romance, you might like this too.

Thanks to Harlequin and Netgalley for the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review.
