I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I haven’t really read that many books set in Alaska. Maybe it’s because the place invokes coldness and isolation, not really a good combination for a romance novel. It doesn’t make you think of sexy men and women with perfect bodies and fashionable clothes. Instead, we always get characters who are buried in winter clothes to survive the harsh temperature.
However, these romance novels set in Alaska can have one saving grace- hot, scorching sex. The colder the atmosphere, the hotter the sex. I mean, it should be like that all the time. I have to say, that sex scenes aside, this book was a bit mediocre for me. I mean, it took me a while to believe that the relationship  between the hero and the heroine was real and deep enough.
What I did like, though, was the way that the heroine’s anorexia was tackled. We get to see how it can be difficult it is for someone with an eating disorder to move past all that and try to be healthy. And that well-meaning family and friends can do more harm than good if they don’t actually understand what the other person is going through.
All in all, this is an okay book with a good story. I just couldn’t get myself to really love the hero or the heroine, for that matter. Also, I find it difficult to believe that the heroine’s feelings for the hero was sincere, not after she cut him out of her life easily and she never gave the hero any hope of a relationship before. And now, suddenly, she was in love with him.
I’d still recommend this book because it’s still a solid romance, and it entertained me. I liked it just fine; I just did not love it. However, I am sure that it’s still a good book to read and fans of the author should certainly not miss this.
