Surviving a plane crash was the easy part…
I can’t fall in love with the man who rescued me from the clutches of death after we met. I just can’t. I’ve never been the type to depend on anyone if at all possible, let alone a gorgeous guy I’m stuck with in a tiny shed during a snowstorm who keeps reminding me that getting out of this place alive depends on us working together. My survival might be safe in his hands, but it’s the rest of me in his hands I can’t stop thinking about.
I promised her I wouldn’t abandon her. I keep telling myself it’s because I can’t bear to lose anyone else, stranger or not. It’s more than that, though. I feel it every time she looks at me with those hauntingly beautiful eyes. If we ever make it out of here, I’m in deep trouble.
This contemporary romance is a slow-burn midlife story with a tragic past for a character and a suspenseful discovery. The author does add in some very twisted reveals. The beginning of the book hooked me, and I was excited to see how it was all connected. I struggled to read through parts of it as it was very slow-moving, but once it picks up, it will stun you. I did love that the author worked in a happy ending.
I love the author’s words at the beginning of the book. This book does contain mental health issues, and trauma readers are advised.
The first part of this book is a testament to survival, with both characters Gwenn and Rhett hunkering down after surviving a plane crash. How will they make it thru this?
Against all odds, they manage to survive and get rescued, but what will happen next? I wish we had more insight into the characters’ ages, height, and looks. A little more history would help me to connect to them.
The romance in this book is a slow burn and quite convoluted with a lot of unnecessary drama and emotions. It does give you someone to despise, but I don’t think it is needed in the story.
This does get twisted toward the end as the author surprises us with a revelation that will floor you. The truth is finally revealed. This book does end surprisingly, and I think I loved the last third of the book the best.
