Review: Lumbersexual by Leslie McAdam

How do you know whether you can trust someone?

Maggie Washington is used to relying on herself. Growing up in Iowa, her wild curls and parents who dumped her on her grandmother made it so she's never fit in. Skeptical of other people's motives, she's always been the fling or the friend. Looking to define her life after college, she's thrilled when she scores a choice summer job working in Yosemite National Park restoring habitat.

Court Thompson is a gorgeous (and bearded) forest ranger with a love-em and leave-em reputation. When he shows interest in her, she’s torn. Even though she's flattered by his attention, she doubts his sincerity—and her ability to get out of the friend-zone.

Will Court be able to coax Maggie into trusting him that he's for real? Or after the summer of s'mores and skinny dipping, will he let her down like everybody else?

What’s summer without a sexy, outdoorsy story.  Lumbersexual is a fun read that will steam up your sunglasses and warm up your heart. You may want to plan your snacks accordingly while reading this short story. I was left craving s’mores, Cheez-Its and a backwoods romp.  
Maggie Washington has graduated Cal Poly with a degree in Botany. She is spending her summer working at Yosemite National park putting her degree to work and doing some soul searching. She didn’t expect to find a sexy, bearded Lumbersexual Ranger who has no plans on being placed in the friends-zone.
Court Thompson is a wilderness man. He’s also known for his 'love them and leave them' summer flings. When he meets Maggie, he finds himself wanting more but in order to win her over he needs to disprove that she’s not just another summer fling.  His reputation is not the only thing he’s battling but also Maggie’s past experiences.
This is a short, feel good story that's light heart with sustenance. 5 Stars!
