Customer Review

on September 1, 2017
What an incredible story this was! I was gripped from the first paragraphs and then completely riveted, reading until the wee hours to finish it. In its simplest terms, it's a story of survival and love but it takes surviving the environment of a northern Alaska winter, against predators of all kinds and surviving the fall into hopeless love. Keegan was living as a survivalist, in near-isolation for years, when he finds August. Initially, August would appear the least likely person to survive a paper cut, much less everything he does go through. A few flashback scenes of memories from each character, provide the backdrop for the plot. Not too many and no confusion as the POV switches throughout the narrative.

Keegan and August were marvelous together as their characters morphed and bloomed under each other's influence. Was there sex at some unlikely points in the story? Yes, but it fit into the narrative anyway, even the Crisco! (No, there's no kink.) There was snow, ice, hypothermia, illness, injury, bears, a wolf named Daisy, and then throw in some poachers and a cartel. It just works, meshing together as the scenes unfold, paced perfectly from chilling start to pulse-pounding finish. There were well-timed lulls in the excitement, as Keegan and August developed their romance, since the story has a time frame of several months.

It's rather scary in places and I was occasionally squeamish over details of various injuries but I'm a big wuss about that kind of stuff. It certainly wasn't anything that stopped me from devouring every word. I highly, highly recommend this to anyone wanting an unusual romance pairing, an exciting, suspenseful plot that's a little edgy but not too dark. This book will be one of my favorites for this year!
