    I really enjoyed reading this book. Set in Alaska, we get to enjoy the scenic beauty and see the beautiful place through their eyes. River and Griff are opposites but also so similar. Both are wounded men and together they help heal each other. Giffin is a former military pilot who now works for his family business as a tourist guide. He has an amazing relationship with his family but also yearns for a place quiet of his own. "He was in too deep already, no life raft in sight, and worst of all, he wasn’t sure he wanted rescue." River is an ex supermodel turned writer who comes to Alaska for a visit. He is a "blue haired siren" and Griff was a goner from the start. "All he needed was this man right here, this moment, and River was going to appreciate the hell out of both for as long as he had this." The book deals with recovery eating disorder and alcoholism and I must say I haven't read many books that deals with these topics. "Griffin might be the pilot, but River was the one who had taught him to fly on wings he hadn’t even realized he possessed." Their chemistry is off the charts and the sex is really amazing too (love that it isn't focused on penetrative sex). I loved the side characters and I'm looking forward to read Toby's book which is releasing in June. *ARC provided by the author via A Novel Take PR in exchange for an honest review

    Slow burning romance in Alaska

    I’m always excited when authors I enjoy launch a new series because it feels like the start to an adventure and I never know quite what to expect. Arctic Sun had that adventure feeling throughout with both main characters in this slow burner finding a bit more of themselves while on an outing in Alaska. I love the way this opposites attract coupling matched up with Griffin leading a photography tour group that includes ex-fashion model River, who’s writing a book depicting his travels. I’ve always been a fan of the heroes who appear grumpy and standoffish on the surface because it give the reader a chance to see their personality emerge. What surprised me was how I got that from both characters, with River putting on an outgoing, breezy air to hide his own personal battles. Containing a bit of a hurt-comfort theme, Arctic Sun wades through a good amount of angst, but I enjoyed learning about Griffin and River and seeing them fall for one another and grow personally as well as a couple. The writing in Arctic Sun was great, not only transporting the reader to the setting but conveying the myriad of emotions Griffin and River dealt with as they tried to find a way to make their two worlds align. I also liked that the pace of the romance reflected the time these two needed; it felt real and substantial by the end and definitely worthy of that happy ending.

    Arctic Sun

    Arctic Sun was a good read about who men who connect. I did feel very much like this book has two parts the first half which I enjoyed less and is more lighter in tone and the second half with I enjoyed more, which was heavier and had more depth and intimacy as well. I struggled a bit with the first half as it just felt like something was missing to fully keep my attention, I also didn't like the romance as much as first as it felt one sided with how River tried to convince Griffin to have sex with him. The second half was a lot better with more depth and intimacy to their relationship and I felt their romance a lot more then. I liked both characters and how they have their strengths and flaws and struggles, making them feel real. It also deals with some difficult topics like addiction and eating disorder, I felt like it was handled well. I liked the Alaska setting, although in parts I would've loved a bit more description so I could visualize things more vividly.

    Interesting Character with Complicated Backgrounds

    For lovers of the Opposites Attract Trope this will quench your thirst for something new. Annabeth Albert delivers not only interesting characters with complicated backgrounds but also a stunning take on Alaska itself so much so I felt as if I was on the tour with them seeing everything as vividly as they were. This book does move at a much slower pace then I am use to with Annabeth Albert's books but honestly I felt the need for that, we needed to get to know both Griffin and River better to understand their struggles. Griffin is a recovering alcoholic, a loner, and a survivor. River is recovering from an eating disorder but covers it so well most wouldn't notice if they weren't watching...but Griffin was always watching, he is full of life and while he doesn't need to be the center of attention he definitely doesn't have a problem with spending time with others. When River and Griffin meet there is an attraction but Griffin is totally against it, even though River is constantly hitting on him. At times I was thinking will this guy get the hint and let Griffin be, I did understand why he kept pursuing him, it just seemed like it was too much at times. This story deals with difficult topics which can be a hard for some to read about but I think Ms. Albert did a wonderful job staying true to the characters struggles with their addictions and disorders. She didn't make light of the true struggles that one would have with coping with such things and I am grateful for that. Arctic Sun is the first book in the Frozen Heart Series which for me is off to a great start. I recommend this book to lovers of MM Romance and those that enjoy the opposites attract trope. Happy Reading!!! **I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book for my Blog, https://nadineisobsessedwithbooks.blogspot.com/

    Fantastic start to a new series.

    Annabeth Albert has done it again! I am a huge fan of this author's writing and could hardly wait to read the first book in this series. I was lucky enough to take a trip to Alaska last May and this series was announced before I left. During many moments of my trip I found my thoughts wandering to the upcoming book and how things I was seeing might appear in the story. In the story the characters venture into places that I didn't go but I could imagine the beauty of the places that are described so richly by the writing. It didn't hurt, I'm sure, that I had visited Alaska but even if I hadn't Annabeth's writing always has a way of pulling me right into the story with her beautiful words. Arctic Sun is about two broken men who eventually manage to find their HEA with each other but it wasn't easy. I happen to love a good angsty story and this one really got to me. There were happy tears and sad tears but everyone one of them was worth it. I can't wait to read the next story in this new series. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com*** (posting on 4/8/19)
