    Arctic gonna melt

    Annabeth Albert did not disappoint with this new series. When I read the blurb, I expected mountain man and a flighty ex model. That is not what I got and man, what a happy pleasant surprise.. (not that I expected this book to be like that.) Griffin and River have dimension. They take their problems and put them on the back burner so that they may live their lives. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Griffin was so sweet and caring once River broke through his extremely difficult walls. And Griff persevered in helping River find balance. Annabeth Albert did an excellent job with the romance aspect and the very real dealing with two very difficult issues, Griff’s sobriety and River’s eating disorder. She was sensitive and did not solve either issue with the power of love. It was so realistic and pure. I love the writing. Her pace was an awesome build up to fantastic heat. Read this!! And read it again!

    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.

    Lovely cliché with a twist

    I was going through a reader’s block and I thought this book will be a light and fluffy romance, full of coziness and wintery warm hugs. BOY WAS I WRONG! That does not mean I did not like this book, though. I actually loved it a lot. Bonus: it got me out of my block hahah. So... We have Griff. A 37-38 recovering alcoholic, family-oriented and very VERY awkward in social situations (boy, can I relate). Griff is a very grumpy boy, who does not appreciate his mother guilt-tripping him into taking the leadership of the tour group that his uncle is unable to guide. You see, our Griff doesn’t like people and hates socializing, so of course he tries to get out of this situation at first (spoilers: no luck.) Enter River, a 29 year old ex-model turned writer. River appears to be everything that Griff despises and a complete opposite of himself: a social butterfly. We have the typical cliché of awkward attraction turning into a sex-for-fun turning into real feelings story. But WAIT A MINUTE. They have TONS AND TONS of baggage! Like I mentioned before, Griffin is a recuperating alcoholic and River is struggling with a eating disorder. So keep that in mind before reading this story is this is triggering for you. The author and the actual book DO warn you about this and the situations are quite descriptive. Coming back to the story, our MC will need to figure themselves out before deciding what they want from each other. I found this very refreshing, as the author leaves quite clear that they are not the cure for each other problems. Overall, a very nice read and I recommend it to anyone who want ma to read a cliché but with a deep twist. Thanks to NetGalley for the copy.

    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.
