When a famous action star needs to clean-up for a major role that even he doubts he can deliver, the director sends him up to a resort owned by his grandmother in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of upper Minnesota, to learn to commune with nature. His guide is Veronica, the director's cousin, a tall, athletic woman who has the relaxed, sensible nature of someone who knows herself well. Raul's initial clumsy attempt to seduce her makes her laugh...so he calls her fat. Is there any hope that their relationship will progress beyond its rocky start? Will the local woman he grows to love believe someone who "lies for a living"? And can Raul overcome his partying nature to discover who he really is, and what he wants to have in his life?

FOR THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE is the first book in the Minnesota Romance series. Raul is a drugged-up manwhore actor who is sent to the Resort in an attempt to keep him out of trouble before the film starts. Veronica works at the Resort helping out her Gram-Marie at the same time as she runs her own business.
There is plenty of steam in this contemporary romance but I couldn't help but laugh every time Raul referred to Big Rod!!! I mean, seriously?!?!
I have to say, although I don't like conflict just for the sake of it, I do feel Veronica let Raul off the hook a bit too easily both times. Maybe I hold onto things more than she did, but there's no way Raul would have been back in my bed so quickly.
The world-building and descriptions of the land and resort were wonderful. Never having been, I felt like I (sort of) knew the place.
I look forward to reading more in this series and have no hesitation in recommending this one.
