A sassy new romance from a USA Today Bestselling Author…

After moving cross-country yet again, Hannah Roberts wants to put down roots in Colorado. She’s sunk her life savings into a share of Bloom Yoga Studio, but the studio is losing money, and fast. The building is undergoing a messy, noisy renovation–and the hot carpenter in charge is distracting her yoga students in more ways than one. If Hannah can’t talk the hard-bodied builder out of his power tools, she might as well kiss her dreams goodbye.
When Jake Marshall returned from Afghanistan, he brought back an injured knee and a lot of bad memories. He just wants to finish this renovation, rehab his knee, and head for Alaska to leave it all behind. A sexy yoga teacher doesn’t fit into his plans. But when Hannah offers him private sessions in exchange for quiet hours—he’s all in. He doesn’t expect that while she’s healing his knee, Hannah will poke at all his hidden wounds…and come dangerously close to breaking open his heart.

Leigh LaValle is a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary and historical romance. She lives in Montana with her family. When she is not chasing kids, bemoaning the laundry, or carving out time to do yoga, she is sneaking away to write. She would rather read than sleep, and cannot imagine a better job than writing romance. She is also a certified yoga teacher, but is not nearly as flexible as she once was.

I loved this book. The writing, the characters, the way the author used a subject that is now widely spoken, Yoga, and how she managed to demystify the idea that those who practice yoga must be super open minded and should not succumb to regular "sins" that everyday people commit. Drink soda, alcoholic drinks, eat meat, love snacks and fries. I ended up realizing that being a Yoga practitioner is being in tune with our body and knowing how to get the best of it.

Hannah is a Yoga teacher who buys, together with some colleagues, a studio for the practice of mental and physical exercises. Despite being a person full of adventure and exercise spirit, she can also be that person with whom we can identify. No way being obsessed with fitness and a perfect body. She finds a way to escape to the green smoothies that come attached to the profession (and way of life), and keeps her "love" for soft drinks and all that food not very advisable to those who want to keep in good shape. What pleased me the most was that Hannah is a perfectly normal and regular woman. We don't get that feeling that not in a millions years I can be like her. In certain fields she is clumsy and clueless. She learned that no matter how much you love someone, you cannnot put yourself in a vulnerable position. We cannot go down in a relationship where, if things do not go well, we stay with nothing, and nowhere to go. She had to have gone through all this so she could have a little more sense of what she should or should not do in her life and in her heart. But, then there is Jack. A former soldier who fights against traumatic memories and a leg injury. It is Jack who will show Hannah that not all men are like the ones she has known in the past, though he has his own traumas and his own complicated way of living and feeling. He does not want to compromise with anyone because of the guilt he feels for having lost his best friend in the war. He feels that he do not deserve to be happy because his friend no longer can also be happy. He cannot love or be loved because his friend cannot do it anymore and it is with this sense of guilt and sadness and also anger that both Jack and Hannah will have to adapt and adjust to eachother and show that love heals everything and love conquers everything, at least the that what is true and solid. Jack is the most caring and loveble man and since the first time that he saw clumsy Hannah that he cannot forget or take her out of her mind. He knows that she must have had some bad experience or several in the past, because, like him, she does not want to open her heart for him or anyone else. With a great persistence, and going against his own beliefs, he's going to make her fall for him... And maybe he will be able to fall for her.
