ABOUT THE BOOK
Arrested. Wrongfully accused. Sentenced to ten years.
But the steel bars release me early.
After serving half of my time for a crime I didn’t commit, they grant me parole—with a very short leash. My second chance at freedom begins now, and I won’t waste it. I should’ve been paying more attention.
Ambushed. Captured. Stranded.
When I wake in the depths of a snowy forest, all seems lost. I’ve been left alone in the wilderness with zero means of escape. Until someone rouses beside me.
I recognize Blakely Cross instantly, yet she’s barely more than a stranger. Now she’s stuck with me in the worst possible place, as collateral damage.
Blakely blames me, and rightfully so. This entire situation is my fault. Our destinies are inadvertently twisted together by forces far larger than us. Whether she hates me or not, we need each other to stay alive.
Cope. Adapt. Persevere.
They tossed us out to be buried, but underestimated our determination. The bond we’re building will overcome the harshest conditions.
And we’re not willing to surrender.
What if you were kidnapped and stranded in the Canadian wilderness with a convicted felon who looked like “a never-ending reel of lady porn” and made it his sole purpose to protect you at no cost? Well, Blakely Cross, a social worker, and cock-eyed optimist is going to find out first hand.
Told in Blakely and Halden’s points of view, this book about trust and survival is a pleasant surprise to the enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, etc., tropes. These two strangers had the unfortunate luck of being kidnapped and thrown in the middle of nowhere with nothing more than the clothes on their back, one sleeping bag, and bad snacks. So with Blakely’s idealism and Halden’s guilt, they make the most of their dire circumstances and earn the respect and trust they both deserve while slowly falling in love.
What a lovely and truly romantic story with sexy innuendos and swoon-worthy dialogue that has an honest plotline with wilderness adventure and LOL moments. Not to mention the slow playful build-up to the sizzling hot love scenes.
If you enjoy a good old fashioned romance with no bullshit misunderstandings and bitchiness, give this book a try.
Thank you to Ms. Rae for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
