When a plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness, the best place to land is in the arms of a younger man…
Hotshot attorney Reuben Graham has finally agreed to take a vacation, when his plane suddenly plunges into the Alaskan wilderness.
Just his luck.
But his frustrations have only begun as he finds himself stranded with the injured, and superhot, pilot, a man who’s endearingly sociable—and much too young for Reuben to be wanting him this badly.
As the sole provider for his sisters and ailing father, Tobias Kooly is devastated to learn his injuries will prevent him from working or even making it back home. So when Reuben insists on giving him a place to recover, not even Toby’s pride can make him refuse. He’s never been tempted by a silver fox before, but something about Reuben is impossible to resist.
Recuperating in Reuben’s care is the last thing Toby expected, yet the closer they become, the more incredibly right it feels, prompting workaholic Reuben to question the life he’s been living. But when the pressure Toby’s under starts closing in, both men will have to decide if there’s room in their hearts for a love they never saw coming.
Usually I zip through an Annabeth Albert story, but Arctic Wild took me aaaaages to finish.
I feel slightly depressed because I adore Annabeth Albert, but this Frozen Hearts series isn't doing it for me. Though there were some great aspects about Arctic Wild, it didn't wow me like I wanted it to.
Right away, I'm giving this book a full bonus point for a silver daddy bear Jewish MC. My husband would say it's very Oedipal of me, but I ACCEPT IT, OKAY.
I tend to love predicament love stories, i.e. stranded/snowed-in/trapped, and I enjoyed that aspect here as well. I'll always go for an injured hero. I liked the dynamic between the two MCs, though I think they lacked passion and bit of chemistry. I wanted a bit more from them.
I didn't love the teenage daughter, to be honest. I found her to be super bratty, and though I have a tween, not a teen, daughter, this one grated on my nerves. Sometimes kids work for me in romance and sometimes they don't.
Though the book was good, even great at parts, the pace was a bit slow and the chemistry a bit off, just enough that this book took me about a week to get through. I don't know if this series is for me.
