Before the age of two, Calla’s mother took her from the Alaska wilderness to be brought up in Toronto, away from the rural lifestyle she hated but also far from her father. Now 26, Calla has never been back to visit her dad and hasn’t contacted him in years. When she receives a call that this may be her last chance to fly out there and get to know him, she jumps at the opportunity and books a one-way ticket to Bangor for a chance to connect with him. While her main priority is finally building a relationship with her dad, she is intrigued by his burly, infuriating right-hand man Jonah, even though they are complete opposites and drive each other mad.

My Thoughts on the Book:

Newest member of the Jonah fan club over here 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

Although I would NOT have stood for the luggage stealing, this guy is a complete dreamboat and I’m happy to say I now understand the obsession. Aside from a near-perfect MC, this book had everything else I need in a love story. The chemistry between the characters was so obvious, there was enough of a slow burn to give us a will-they-or-won’t-they? and there are layers of other story pieces that added even more to the main plot.
I loved Calla’s attitude and her refusal to take flack from anyone, even her dad’s star employee. Every character in Bangor added so much to the book and really helped paint a picture of life in the small town. While I was completely obsessed with Calla and Jonah, Calla’s parents’ love story absolutely broke me and I obviously had a good cry over their “what could have been”.
