Just Try Me... by Jill Shalvis

Title: Just Try Me...
Author: Jill Shalvis
Publisher: Harlequin Blaze
Published: 2006
Pages: 240
Genre: Series Romance

I am a participant in the 2009 TBR Challenge. This month we were challenged to read a series romance from our TBR stack. I love the Harlequin Blaze line and have a huge pile of them waiting to be read. So I dug in deep and came up with Just Try Me... by Jill Shalvis. It features an adrenaline junkie heroine and a techno-geek hero. The theme is one of my favorites - an injured main character that has to recover physically and learn to live and love again. I really enjoyed this book. I fell in love with Jared as soon as he appeared on the pages. His quiet strength and dashingly good looks made him an excellent counterpart to Lily. He was determined to not let life pass him by and to experience everything to the fullest - even love. Lily was just as determined to keep her heart safe and keep risks to a minimum.

Lily is fiercely independent and loves to take chances. She's done it all - hiked, rafted, skied, even firefighting. But an accident nearly ended it all causing her to have to start all over again. Her latest job is to guide a group of people on a hike through the Sierras. Jared is the owner of a large corporation, techno-geek in every way except his devastatingly good looks. He too was looking for a new start at life and the first item on his list was a hike through the mountains.

Both Lily and Jared are looking for healing...but as Jared opens his heart to new experiences, Lily guards hers with a fierce determination.
