Book Review – Shelter (Getaway, #2) by Jay Crownover


His life is chaos and confusion. It’s a storm of uncertainty and raging emotion.

Sutton Warner is a mess. Everything in his life feels like it’s unraveling. 
He’s let a lot of people down lately, including his daughter. Sutton always promised his little girl he would never disappoint her and that he would always be there when she needed him. Until he wasn’t.

The truth is, he’s used to disappointing the women in his life. First was his mother who couldn’t find a reason to stick around when he was growing up. Then there’s his ex. The woman who takes unbridled delight in making his life incredibly complicated. Luckily, his daughter is still young enough to believe her old man is some kind of hero. But, he knows the day is coming when she realizes the truth, which is, he’s just a man with some serious flaws and a list of ever-growing weaknesses.

Finally, there’s the woman he’s desperately trying to forget with every shot tossed back and each pill popped.  He more than disappointed Emrys…he almost got her killed. 
Her love is steady and sure. It’s a shelter shaped by conviction and silent assurance. 

Emrys Santos is lost. Everything in her life feels pointless and futile. 
She’s been busy running away from her feelings and all the people who love her the most—including her best friend, the one person who knows exactly what she’s been through. They promised to always stick together and to lean on one another. It was a promise Em had to break so she could lick her wounds and figure out her next move. For once, there is no easy way out of the tangled web of emotions she’s caught up in, and right now, she recognizes that all roads lead back to Wyoming…and back to Sutton.

The man she nearly got killed.

Shelter is a standalone novel, the second book in the Getaway series, which features the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women who dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

Shelter was amazing and I loved it so much! The second installment in the addicting Getaway series was a sweet, sexy, suspenseful, and incredibly entertaining standalone contemporary romance, and I absolutely loved it. Jay Crownover did a phenomenal job with the storyline and characters, and I loved her writing style. Shelter was only the second novel I’ve read from her, but it has been my favorite so far, and it certainly won’t be the last.

   Sutton and Emrys were amazing and I loved them and their story so much. I loved their personalities and red-hot chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed throughout. I loved reading the book from both Sutton and Emrys’s POV, and I thoroughly enjoyed all of their banter and interactions with each other. Once again, there were plenty of surprising twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting, but all of it was exciting and kept me on my toes from beginning to end. I loved most of the secondary characters as well, and I very much enjoyed getting to see several familiar faces from Retreat. Shelter was addicting and riveting, and I loved Sutton and Emrys’s story from start to finish. The ending was perfect and made me very happy. It also made me excited to start Escape, the third and final installment in the Getaway series about Lane Warner, very soon.

   Shelter was a sexy, addicting, suspenseful, and entertaining standalone contemporary romance, and an amazing installment in the Getaway series! Jay Crownover did an awesome job with this book, and I was very pleased with the outcome to Sutton and Emrys’s story. Ms. Crownover is a fairly new author to me, but she has definitely made me a fan of her work, and I can’t wait to read more!
