Lumberjack by Jenika Snow


He hasn’t been with a woman in five years.

She hasn’t been with a real man … until now.


I’ve had enough of the crap that goes along with living in the city. So, I packed for a weeklong vacation in the mountains. Isolation in a cabin for the next seven days sounds like a good way to recoup and get my life back in order. After getting lost while hiking, I stumble upon a cabin that has me questioning whether to ask for help, or if I should brave staying the night in the woods.


I left everything behind years ago after the woman I was with betrayed me. Now I work as a lumberjack and live my life as a recluse. Being celibate for the last five years says a lot about my self-control, but I’m a man and have needs, and not giving into what I really want is hard as hell. But I can’t let myself get close to anyone, not even for a few hours. Getting close is how I got screwed over before.

As soon as I see Vivian, I know I have to have her. It’s been forever since I’ve had a woman. Because of a storm rolling in, she’ll have to stay with me overnight. We could do a lot of filthy things in that time. I pride myself on my control, but when it comes to Vivian, I don’t know if I can keep my hands to myself.

I know I can’t.

I have needs, and it’s clear Vivian’s in need of a real man to help her unwind. I can certainly help her in that department.

Warning: If you’re looking for a sappy, pull-your-heartstring kind of book … this isn’t it. If you want a short and dirty story featuring an all-around alpha hero who hasn’t had a woman in years, and a heroine who’ll find out what it’s like to be with a real man ... this might be for you.

4 Stars

Fast and dirty!
Just how I like it!
There is no dicking around, wait, yes there is.
But not when it comes to waiting on the good stuff.
Yes this book contains sexual scenes that may cause you to blush, 
have heart palpitations, or water at the mouth!
I had them all.

Jake is tired of all the BS and goes off the grid to live a simple
freaking life.  That doesn't mean he isn't lonely, sure it.
But he's not going to go into town and pick a chick at the local bar.
Who knows where that could lead.
He's content to be by himself and the woods.
Until....<<dramatic pause>> Vivian shows up at his door like
a little lost puppy.

He won't turn her away or refuse her.
There is no way she doesn't feel this crazy pull between them.
Taking a leap, Jake claims Viv, making her his, 
at least for the night.  He'll get her out of his system
once she is gone.
Or will he?  

Viv is tired of the lies and games.
She wants a real man.
Lucky for her the woods steered her in the right path.
Towards lumberjack Jake!
He is everything she needs and wants, she just doesn't 
know it yet.  But once his hands are on this hot little kitten
she can't stop meowing for more cream.

This is a novella just over 100 pages.
The story moves quickly and you'd better keep up, because
Jake has some good stamina and Viv isn't ready to toss in the towel yet.
