Publisher's Summary

Wall Street Journal best-selling author Nicole Snow returns with a steamy and electrifying stand-alone romance thriller where one ginormous protector goes all-in to win Miss Unlucky.

You know the drill. Big hands, big feet, humongous - yikes. We're not going there for the thousandth time. I've got small-town problems aplenty and zero time for Paxton “Alaska” Charter. Crushing on smoke-show men with caveman vibes can't end well.

Sure, he saved my little coffee shop from total ruin once. Yes, my ovaries melt watching single dad of the century with his little boy. Of course, I'd sleep like a baby if I let him work his former SEAL hero magic on my mess. That's not why I'm freaking out.

Nobody told me how devastatingly kind Alaska can be. Or the fact that his stubborn heart's even more guarded than mine. If he comes barreling into my life, it's certain doom. And it's all thrown to the wind the day his kiss claims me.

We have to say good-bye. Right now. Before it's too late. He can't keep sheltering my body, stealing my heart, and igniting my soul. I won't drag this gentle giant down my abyss of ugly secrets. But Alaska has other plans - and they scare me. Because they all involve impossible happily ever afters, no matter the cost.

Full-length small-town stand-alone romance heaven. The butterflies come in force when one large and in-charge single dad steps in to rescue the girl who abandoned all hope and forgot how to love.

Making issues where there doesn’t need to be.

The main character is so unlikable. She complains about how she doesn’t deserve help and love, however her not telling people the danger she is in is putting far more people in danger. All would be solved if she used her resource available to her.

The male narrator wasn’t necessarily bad, he just sounded like someone who worked a corporate job, not an ex- navy seal, who works construction.

The overall story had enough plot without all her self loathing.

good book, good narration

Overall I liked this book. I mostly listened to the audiobook (whispersync rocks) and the narration by Tor Thom and Rose Dioro was good. I have to admit Tor’s voice isn’t what I would have matched with Alaska but these two did a pretty good job.

The story has Alaska falling for Felicity, who is dealing with a horrible woman who has a vendetta against Felicity because of something her dad did. The story dragged a bit- there was so much drama as Felicity bemoaned her poor status in the town, what her father did, being a punching bag for a local crime syndicate, etc. Alaska was a sweet character, looking out for his son and her. But their romance just fell a little flat. That said, the action at the end was compelling and it was great to see the bad guys get their due. Overall, I enjoyed the story, both reading it and the narration.

Decent story that could be 1 hour less

I enjoyed the thriller aspects of this book, but it was hard to get on the side of the female main. Constantly thinking she’s not worth anything. Paxton made this a hunky summer read but his dirty talk was a little jarring—didn’t seem to fit with any of his other actions. Also the book could have been 1 hour less. There is literally nothing that happens in the last hour— so boring.

Alaska & Felicity

Alaska is fitting for this character, the drama, danger, and overcoming his fears of choosing the wrong woman again. Felicity is cursed to bad luck and paying for her Father's addictions and sordid past, and a crazy woman who is determined to make her pay. in the end they finally get their HEA

long

although I really enjoyed the story I feel that it got a little boring as it became so long and wordy. I truly enjoy Nicole snow work. I also enjoy that there is a certain rhythm reading her books as there is very little shock value.
