Abandoned by his partner in the wilds of Alaska, Peter is pretty much at the end of his rope. He has a cabin falling down around his ears, two young babies to care for, and too much alone time to think about his situation. It’s enough to make a man rethink wanting to be a dad.
Park Ranger Chad thinks Peter could use some help, especially when fire and weather warnings make him wonder if Peter’s little cabin is going to make it through the year. When he takes Peter and the babies in, he finds out that the attraction the two of them felt on their first meeting has the potential to be a lot more. Can he convince Peter that they can do more than keep each other warm?
This book was a very sweet, sappy story. It was instant love between Chad and Peter and the twins. I guess I thought it would be more about Peter being abandoned in Alaska (like the description said). But it turned out to be a sweet romance story.
The characters seemed to be a good couple and both enjoyed the twins very much which was a nice way to take the story. All the shopping for the holidays and we never read about the holiday itself. It was a real quick sweet story to read.
So Peter is a brand new father of twins by a surrogate who decides to move to Alaska to get away. So he feels lost because the man who said he loved him ran away and left him with two babies to raise on his own. Well as soon as he meets Chad who is a park ranger they have a instant attraction and move in together with the babies.
Now I did like where the author was going with this book and these characters. For me though it was just so sweet it was a little to much and I had a hard time reading this book because it really did not grab me at first so it took me awhile to finish this book. So I am sad to say this book was just not for me….

Barring any of that? He’ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.
