Watch and pray that you may not enter temptation…
What if in one moment, you find out your life—your entire existence was a lie?
When rogue, nomad biker Asher Reed finds himself on the side of the road injured from an accident, he assumes he’s taken his final ride. Waking days later in an infirmary located within a secret, religious compound, his first impulse is to run. His church had always been the road, and he, the last man who should be among the faithful. When his raven-haired caretaker appears, his instincts and everything he once believed in diminishes, leaving only temptation.
The spirit indeed is willing…
Riley Chapman had long ago resigned herself to a life of order, reverence, and duty. Her coveted role as assistant to the Reverend should be enough to keep her happy, content with her life. Her whole life she wondered about what was on the other side of the tree line she’d always been told would keep her safe.
What if she wasn’t safe anymore?
But the flesh is weak.
When a chance encounter pulls Asher and Riley together and temptation is too much to resist, how can they keep their dangerous secret? In a place where secrets are sins and the trustworthy can’t be trusted, who will they turn to in search of salvation?
Beyond the Pine is a dark, multi-POV standalone romance that will have you gasping, swooning and on the edge of your seat.
Review by: Melanie
I'd never read any of Kate Benson's books before Beyond the Pine. The blurb didn't sound like anything I'd normally read. But there was something about this book that made me think.. why not? Let's give it a go.
I am really happy I did, as I couldn't put it down.
The characters and story drew me in from the start, and I could just feel it in the writing that something was going to happen. And not all of it was going to be good, for the characters at least, lol. That's what kept me reading, the thought of what's going to happen? How will ... be resolved? Will Riley and Asher find a way to get through it all in one piece? I have to admit, I had my doubts at one point but of course that's a mark of a good story teller, to keep you guessing until the very end. I won't say which way it went of course, because you need to read it yourself to find that out.
I don't know if Kate Benson will take this world she created any further, but if she does I will be reading to find out what happens next. I thoroughly enjoyed Beyond the Pine and give it 4.5 stars.
