Unlikely Allies By Tiffany King

Eighteen-year-old Kimberly gets the shock of her life when she learns the father she thought was dead is not only very much alive, but never even knew she existed. Angry with her mother for lying all these years, Kimberly flies to Colorado to meet the father she knows nothing about before heading off to college in the fall.
Her father’s world turns out to be nothing like she expected. Rather than the typical nine to five lifestyle, Kimberly’s father runs a summer foster camp that teaches young children skills to build their confidence and self-esteem. The Colorado Rocky Mountains are a different world than the sunny shores of California, taking Kimberly completely out of her element, and causing her to second-guess her spur of the moment decision. 
Never being one to quit anything, Kimberly is determined to show her father that a surfer girl can fit into this rugged mountain wilderness. That is if she can deal with Mason, an arrogant nineteen-year-old guy who has made it his mission to point out every mistake she has made since her arrival. While she would love nothing more than to rub it in his know-it-all face, Kimberly can’t deny the feelings he stirs up inside her, or the chemistry between them, even during their verbal assaults.
When a tragic accident leaves them stranded in the mountains, Kimberly must use her shaky skills to save Mason and survive the elements. Suddenly, fighting is the last thing on their minds as they must rely on each other if they want to live. In their struggle for survival, they realize what they thought they knew about each other isn’t true after all.

Kim never knew she had a father until her mother finally tells her. She travels to Colorado to meet him. What she expected was to spend time with her dad, get to know him as she's always craved to have a dad in her life. And to be fair, she has a pretty god damn good one. 

He runs a camp for foster kids, so when he informs her that she's going to be working there she's kind of worried about getting it right, about making him proud. 
That's when she meet's Mason, the boy who her father had fostered at a young age after he refused to leave the camp the first time he went, he has stayed there ever since. There first encounter and everyone after that is unpleasant to say the least. So, you'll know why I was completely shocked when on the night the storm happens, they kiss and she likes it. 

Anyway, they are both put in a serious situation, one where Mason has to rely on Kim to help him, to help them. 
It doesn't end good for either, and they go on like they never met but some how she can't move on from him. 

This is the only downfall to the book. There was NO chemistry between the two that I could take in account as to why they loved each other. They hardly knew each other. They basically knew OF each other. The time they did spend closely together was when they're in the situation that could cost them their lives, but even then, I didn't feel that connection. Sorry, just didn't feel it. That's the only problem, which is a pretty huge one being's as it's a romance novel, but you get my drift. 

The story line other than that and the ending, which I loved, were great and I found myself wanting to read more.

These are in no particular order ....

  • Hopeless By Colleen Hoover  £1.99 in kindle store. This novel will forever stay in my memory. I have yet to write a review on some of these novels but just because i haven't doesn't mean they aren't worth talking about. They are.

  • The Notebook By Nicolas Sparks  £3.99 in kindle store. who hasn't read or seen the notebook. seriously. It is one of the most tearful book and film i have seen.

  • Safe Haven By Nicolas Sparks  £3.49 in kindle store. Ok i brought this book a while ago then learnt shortly after it was being released on film and neither was a disappointment. This book is about love, abuse and life in general. The book had me crying more then the film did because the words were so powerfully written. I will never forget the moment when Katie realizes who the woman who has being living near her and talking to her on a day to day basis. This novel will consume you, suck you in until you finish.

The choices people make in life are sometimes the ones you have to live with for the rest of your life. Lucky for Clay, Riley new him more then she knew himself.
