Discovering Sophie

About the book: Sophie Kendrick's father has gone missing in the jungles of Costa Rica. Desperate for answers to his whereabouts, she decides to search for him herself. She hires Jack Mathison to guide her through the jungle, but the two of them seem to be at odds from the moment they meet. Sophie finds Jack conceited, sarcastic, and worse, very good-looking. He is totally not her type, so how could she possibly be attracted to him? Likewise, Jack can't wait to be rid of Sophie and her optimistic outlook. Seriously, how could someone be that nice? Jack isn't looking for a relationship, and finds the electrifying chemistry between the two of them completely annoying. His job is to lead Sophie to a remote village deep inside the rainforest- her fathers last known location. Still, the jungle is a dangerous place and Jack does everything in his power to protect Sophie, but who will protect his heart?

My Review: Wow, this book is a wild ride! I loved Sophie, she's a super smart woman who just wants to find her missing father. That leads her to the jungles of Costa Rica and Jack, a tour guide who wants nothing to do with women. He tells her no way and tries to send her on her way. Sophie won't take "no" for an answer though and eventually gets her way. But life in the jungle isn't quite what she thinks it will be and there are many challenges to overcome. I love that Sophie is willing to stick it out and overcome those challenges for her father, for herself and even for Jack. Jack is so stinking stubborn, but that becomes a good thing in the end. I love that their love isn't cut and dried, there are many obstacles for both of them to overcome. I loved the ending of this one too! You won't be disappointed for picking this one up!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
