On the way to investigate a fugitive sighting, 21-year-old news intern Aubrey Kent is injured when an unexpected storm destroys the newscopter—along with the rest of the crew.
Now, stranded in the Canadian wilderness and on the brink of death, Aubrey is rescued by a handsome stranger whose cold disposition is as frightening as the remote cabin in which he lives. With no way to reach civilization before spring, Aubrey becomes Jack Gordon’s unwanted roommate. Her hope for rescue is much more desperate when she sees his hostile attitude and violent behavior.
Aubrey and Jack wait out the winter, they grow closer—their delicate friendship blooming into feelings neither of them could have anticipated. But the weather and the wolves aren’t the only dangers in the mountains. As Aubrey uncovers the reason for Jack’s self-imposed isolation, she realizes she’s closer to the story than she imagined—a story that might cost her life.
I’m hoping that there is more to their story. I’m stuck in limbo with how to feel about the ending of this book. I agree with what happened and why it happened, doesn’t mean I wanted it too. I’m so annoyed that it was left like that ! So I’m hoping there’s more as I don’t feel their story is over at least I hope it isn’t.
Aubrey was a sassy carefree individual, who put up a good show, wasn’t frightened of her circumstance and found herself gaining strength in the fact that she had survived rather than crumble. She began to warm to her saviour and a friendship started to appear, rocky at times but there.
Jack was the saviour, a broody, grumpy, used to being alone, rather handsome stranger. With a past he had no interest in sharing. No modern amenities as he lives in the middle of nowhere. He saved Aubreys life and now he’s stuck with her until the weather changes but it’s not all bad.
The storyline itself was never boring and the fact it focused solely on two main characters for the majority of the book, with no other interaction from other supporting cast the book flowed nicely. With plenty of plot twists and turns, albeit some of them predictable there was never a dull moment.
