Ty is a SEAL pilot that was shot down in the Artic. No one knows he is down but the hostiles who shot his plane. Now he needs to devise a plan to stay one step ahead before they find him to finish the job.
Holly is a musher with dog sledding tour business but no one is signing up with her. She moved to Alaska to escape a brutal ex-husband. She is caught in a blizzard soon after a moose attacked her dogs.
Before I even get into the review, I have to define “musher”. I did not know what this was. A musher is a person who competes in cross-country races with dog team and sled (from dictionary.com). It is admirable that Holly is trying to make her living in a male oriented business.
This book is an insta-love story with a lovable alpha-male and beaten-but-not-broken heroine. The story follows a consistent format.
When Ty found Holly, he infers a lot about the domestic abuse she suffered from the scars he saw when he rescued her. He went into protective mode.
“If she were mine, I’d show her what it is to be adored, treasured.”
Even though they did not know each other very well, their insta-love was basically summed up with this quote
“He can tell a lot about a person by the way she treated her animals.”
She was willing to drop the pants quickly too because her dogs sensed he was a good man.
I do not recommend solely using your pets as a guide to determine if a guy has no ulterior motives in real life though. I do believe there is a lot to be said about how a person treats animals, older people, and anyone in the service industry. But committing to a guy because he gave your dog a bone? That might be taking it too far.
Should you buy? It was entertaining. There was one sad part, but overall, it was fast paced with decent dialogue.
