ARC Review! Make Me Stay by Rebecca Brooks

Samantha Kane is about to solidify her father’s legacy by developing sleepy Gold Mountain into the most profitable ski resort in the country. There’s one man standing in her way though. One very sexy, rugged man. When she shows up to convince Austin Reede to sell, she has no intention of hiding her identity. But with a body like his, she’ll take a few risks to get closer.

Austin was the fastest skier on the U.S. Olympic team, until he shattered his knee. Gold Mountain became his refuge—and now Kane Enterprises is threatening that home. When he meets Sam, he has no idea she’s the one to blame, he just knows the attraction between them is one he hasn't felt in years. A scorching hot one-night stand is just what he needs. Little does he guess that it will change everything…
This was an interesting read, although I think the "secret" of Samantha's identity was kept away from Austin for too long, which made it a little difficult to engage in the story.  And, don't worry, this is not a spoiler.  The reader knows the entire time, the only person in the dark is Austin.

I get the fun of the idea of a story in which one of the people has a secret...but in this instance, I thought it was a little obvious and that there was no way the secret of her identity could have gone on for as long as it did. And, for all of the time the book spent focusing on it, I thought it was made a non-event once everyone knew.

Other than that, I actually enjoyed he relationship between Sam and Austin. I also really liked her story arc, as she became more of a person in charge and came out of her father's shadow in the company.

I thought their relationship seemed authentic and that there was a lot in the book that really worked. I just had issues with the secret and how long it went on.
