Two Cabins, One Lake (Alaskan Romance #1) by Shaye Marlow
Helly is a volatile blonde with a passion for fishing, a grudging tolerance for the fishermen she guides, and a part-time job putting her sexual fantasies in writing. She lives a quiet life in the Alaskan bush, alone on her little lake with only a spooky dog and her gun collection for company.
But then Gary, the most obnoxious man Helly’s ever met, roars into her life. The mysterious helicopter pilot moves into the cabin across the lake with a vengeance. And fire. And karaoke. He’s a despicably early riser with a penchant for public indecency, a talent for trespassing… and he’s handsome as the devil, with abs she’d like to lick.
Helly quickly realizes her little lake isn’t big enough for the two of them. After an initial attempt at being reasonable, and responsible, and mature, she gives up—and gives as good as she gets. What follows is a feud of eardrum-battering intensity; a no-holds-barred water fight to the tune of a screaming chainsaw, with her panties caught in the crossfire.
Just when Helly thinks things couldn’t possibly get any worse, her crazy brothers crash the party. In an unforgiving land where even the wildlife is out for blood, can the pair survive long enough for Gary to capture Helly’s heart, along with her wrists? Or will Gary’s past be the final blow, after Helly loses her boat, her dignity, and what’s left of her ammo?

Two Cabins, One Lake is a book I enjoyed too much! It reminds me of CM Owens’ Wild Ones, a fact that I don’t mind a bit.
When you find out that your heroine’s name is Helly, a nickname from Haley, you know it in your bones that she is trouble. When the new neighbor starts to make too much noise and distress, Helly has no other choice than to retaliate at his own games. Gary is a mystery to why he moved in this place of nowhere, but their chemistry is off the charts.
This is a comedy you will want to read and enjoy since all their encounters has some really funny outcome. They are smart, witty and ready to play, meanwhile falling in love.
The situation gets complicated when Helly’s three bothers come to visit and they are a recipe for disaster.
Two Cabins, One Lake is one of my favorite lough-out-loud series and I enjoy it once in a while since I have so much fun reading it. The characters are very well built and the fact that we find out why Gary is here in the first place makes it really interesting, since his secrets are revealed quite late.
This is the first book of the Alaskan Romance and the second one tells the story of Helly’s best friend Suzy.
