Artie, 36, has reddish stubble, wrinkles and worked hard core fishing boats for the last 11 years.
Carson, nearly 22, a has dark short hair, blue eyes and graduated college, but couldn't find a job. His dad got him a one-way ticket to Alaska to prove he's a man, and that's how he found himself on the F/V Fishing Vessel "Lost Agnes" in the icy Bering Sea.
It's a tough job for Carson, being the greenhorn who gets razzed constantly, and Carson has trouble with the sea, the cold, and the conditions, and the homophobia. There are a few mishaps, and he recovers, but there are more to come. What a rough and tumble life.
Artie is his protector, and makes sure he's saved when he goes overboard in the freezing waves, but the "kid" is stronger than they think. Their sexy times are total hotness and fun.
We see the attitudes, the connection our men have, and the ultimate result.
This is well written, fascinating, exciting, dangerous, yet heartwarming.
Then he met Artie.
Patient Lee took a song, “Midnight Train to Georgia” and a reality TV show and blended them together with the aim to write a quality gay male story. And she more than succeeded. In Gay Greenhorn: F/V Lost Agnes she put together the most unlikely group of characters, crab fishermen, and delivered a distinctively male romance. Bravo.
There are secrets on Captain Rich’s ship but from the Lost Agnes’s wheel house he sees everything; join him there and watch what unfolds. Beautiful work, Patient Lee.
I think I liked the second half better than the first, it was more romantic and balanced. It was nice all in all, but very fast paced, I would have liked more time to understand how they got to falling in love. It was such a short read that maybe less events would have made it more cohesive and balanced. It felt like a story too big for the time it had. The audio narration was good, a little fast at first, but with good range of emotion.
This is good stuff, for anyone interested in a good story who's either interested in or open-minded about gay male romance.
I really can't get over how amazing this story is, on so many levels. It's erotic romance, for sure - the sex is ridiculously hot; you can feel passion burning off the page - but it's much more than that. The characters are so real, so vivid, an intimate part of the setting: a crabbing boat in Alaska's Bering Sea, in January. I'd never imagined what it might be like to go crab fishing, and now I know it really wouldn't be fun. The author's precise rendering of life on a crabbing vessel is an impressive piece of work in itself. Patient Lee also does a fantastic job capturing the closemindedness of many fishermen, with their gay jokes and casual cruelty, while also rendering each one human and believable. The love story itself is beautiful. And I loved the connection to that wonderful old song, Midnight Train to Georgia. Having nods to those lyrics throughout made F/V Lost Agnes even more enjoyable to read.
This is one for my permanent reading shelf. It really is that good.

If you need to read the story in english, then it's really good.
But, sorry to say so,
IIf you want the absolute, incredible five star fishing vessle in the Bering Sea with all the ice, the seasickness and also steaming hot sex, and you are able to read a book in german, then I would recommend "Rumble and Rush" from CatTheMad.
This book is so good, I'd volunteer to translate.
