If there’s one gift Erika Sheraton does not want for Christmas, it’s a vacation. Ordered to take time off, the workaholic surgeon reluctantly trades in her scrubs for a ski suit and heads to Wild River, Alaska. Her friend Cassie owns a tour company that offers adventures to fit every visitor. But nothing compares to the adrenaline rush Erika feels on being reunited with Cassie’s brother, Reed Reynolds.
Gone is the buttoned-up girl Reed remembers. His sister’s best friend has blossomed into a strong, skilled, confident woman. She’s exactly what his search-and-rescue team needs—and everything he didn’t know he craved. The gulf between his life in Wild River and her big-city career is wide. But it’s no match for a desire powerful enough to melt two stubborn hearts…
Erika is a workaholic, all while trying to get her father to notice her because he's been withdrawn since her mother died. When she's forced to take a vacation and runs into her best friend's older brother... well, they can't deny the fire between them. But it soon turns into something more than just lust... can they make it work? Or will Erika run back to her old life and leave Reed in the snow-covered mountains?
I love this novel! It's been a while since I've been this into a book that it had me reacting out loud. I cried, laughed, and then grinned like an idiot at the end. It's so freaking cute all while dealing with a few hard topics. It ends with a very nice bright red bow and just leaves you feeling all warm inside while wanting to visit Alaska. Well, I've always wanted to live in Alaska so I'm biased.
The writing is light and fully, the pacing is perfect. I have nothing bad to say about this book other than I want more. I hope we get a squeal with Cassie and Tank. I want their story next and I loved the setting so much I just want to go back.
*So happy that NetGalley gave me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
