    Ok plot. Rapid progression, graphic sex.

    ** Verifiably Purchased ** Judging a Book by it's Cover: Unsure why these men would be outside, bare-chested, on a snow-covered Alaskan day. The work boots and booties are cute, but unsure of the overall composition. The single daddy of twins element is what draws me in to want to read the book, but again... "smarter choices" seems like it may be the theme in this one. Looking Deeper: Novella, 100 -150 pages. Third-person POV. Peter is a single dad, via surrogate, of twins Daniel and Ellen. He moves them from the city to an old, run-down cabin at the edge of state park, where Park Ranger, Chad, shows up. Chad sees Peter's struggles and cannot help but admire the man. Peter's a good dad and the twins are so happy and healthy, but he worries that the cabin will not be sufficient for winter inhabitants - especially the little ones. The characters are likable, but the dialogue feels stiff, too formal and rather scripted when they are speaking to one another. There's also too many identifiers in the dialogue for my personal taste. I do not know anyone that speaks my name every other time they direct a comment to me, especially when we are the only two people in the room. There is some terminology that makes me question the author's locale as well, considering the setting is Alaska. Their relationship progresses at a heedless pace, that would concern me as a parent, but they appear to work as a well-oiled machine anytime they are under the same roof. It may feel natural to them, but it seems a bit rushed and careless to me. I'm not sure how to forewarn future readers of these sex scenes without sounding like a terrible person, but I am going to try... the approach lacks genuine emotion and romance. The dialogue during - and yes, there is a constant running dialogue during the sex scenes - was laughable. I felt like I was trapped reading something between a child's idealistic "True Love" make-believe game and a high school theater club's attempt at Erotica. It just fell well short of believable or natural to me. On the brightside, the dialogue and interaction each man has with either child is much more genuine feeling. The plot was good, although a bit one-dimensional. There were not a lot of conflicts or dynamics to add depth to the story; however, the book read quick and smooth. The ending was a bit abrupt, I think it would have benefited from an Epilogue... perhaps detailing the twins' First Birthday and an update on the legal aspects that were discussed prior to Christmas. That said, there were no actual loose ends, no cliffhangers. Overall, I think I was so excited over the excerpt and synopsis that the full version was not quite what I'd hoped for. I hate saying that, but it is the truth. While not a badly written story, it just fell short for me personally. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rating: 5 [X] ~ Score: 3.8 ~ Stars: 4 -------------------------------------------------------------------------
