There I was - stormed in with the sexiest bastard in all of Colorado.
Landing a personal chef job was my ONE big break. Though, I never expected to come face-to-face with the kinky star of my virgin fantasies. Tyler Jenner is a sexy billionaire and mountain man - with a RAVENOUS appetite. And he’s packing more wood than all of Colorado. He tells me to serve him meat and potatoes. Meanwhile he wants to serve me some of his own meat. Can you believe this guy? I’m not biting. I’ve got too much on the line. This mountain billionaire will have to find another cherry to pop.
When I saw Maggie walk into my lodge, I wanted her right there. I give her a flash of the mountain monster and she told me to screw off. She acted like I was some kind of animal. It pissed me off. Not because she was wrong - I am an animal. But this animal has women lining up for miles to get a glimpse of the log I’m packing in my jeans. Before long I’ll own this chef. In my bed. In my bathroom. In my kitchen – and she’ll be begging me for more. But if she thinks she can fix this crooked mountain beast’s heart - she’s got another thing coming. I’ve got my baggage and she’s got hers. I’m not letting a woman interfere with my life. No matter how much I CRAVE her.

(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)
Rock Hard Mountain Man is Hart's debut novel, although it had it's ups and downs, the story was still very much enjoyable to read. At the beginning of the story we get to meet Maggie, after losing her mother to cancer, she has been become the sole taker of her two teenage brothers. Her dream of becoming a chef were also cut short including her dream of having her own restaurant one day. Now she works for a local restaurant in town, but money has become tight and she doesn't know what else to do to provide for her brothers. It is as soon as her cousin tells her that she had gotten her an interview as a personal chef to a wealthy man that Maggie couldn't believe of the opportunity presented to her. Soon she is off to the interview, but the minute she sees Tyler everything begins to change, and the more time they spend with each other the more she started to fall in love with him.
Tyler may be a billionaire, and although it has it's perks, things are different when he meet Maggie. She is kind, brave, and he can't get enough of her. She is all he thinks about and he will do anything to keep her by his side. But soon their lives change when they discover hidden secrets that could end up keeping them apart. Now it'll be up to them to decide if they can move forward with their relationship or walk their separate ways.
Overall, the story was enjoyable to read, the characters and the setting helped the book as a whole. Now one of the things that I didn't like so much at the beginning was Tyler's personality, he is a jerk towards Maggie but he changed throughout the story. Maggie is a hardworking person and really sweet. She has taken a lot for herself, and that alone made her relatable to read. Though the story short and sweet, the ending (resolution) just happened way to fast for me. One minute a character would be confronting the other, and the next everything seems to be find and the end. It all happened to way to quickly in my opinion that I couldn't enjoy the ending at all, especially the epilogue. The story does have potential and it has its steamy/romantic moments that will certainly leave you wanting for more. Needless to say, it's a good story and I will most likely read more from the author in the future. :)
