Review: Lean On Me

Reviewed by Allison

The formerly famous mountain climber, Cassidy Clarke is back in town. Her hometown, the one she accidentally “snubbed” in a newspaper article she had no idea she was being quoted for. In her first foray back into the area’s social society, she runs into an old classmate, Mitch Anders.

Mitch owns the nursery (think plants, not babies) that the event is being held at and sees Cassidy right away. He always liked her in high school and doesn’t believe all that he reads, so when he comes over to her, he isn’t coy. She doesn’t understand his interest, but can’t deny the attraction, so she agrees to one date. As they get to know each other, learn secrets, and find out what really happened in that fateful interview, they fall pretty hard and fast for one another.

I liked Mitch and how he always had faith in Cassidy (except for a stumble towards the end, but he was forgiven). He was a solid guy and even though I didn’t know the history of the other guys he owns the nursery with (since I missed the first book in the series,) I liked his friendly bromance chemistry with them.

Cassidy was a really interesting character, especially since professional mountain climbing isn’t a typical heroine job. I liked that Ms. Dimon did her research on the thrills and dangers of climbing high altitudes.

Although it wasn’t anything that knocked my socks off, it was still definitely enjoyable and a cute read.
