Synopsis

Snow, steam, and secrets.

The latest snowstorm carries something unexpected to the doorstep of Hutch’s secluded Alaskan cabin: a stranger named Jude, the most beautiful man Hutch has ever seen. Jude says he’s in the area for a ski trip and that he fled a domineering lover, thinking he could make it into town. But Hutch is a suspicious SOB and treats his unwanted guest warily. The problem is Jude isn’t just gorgeous, he’s funny and smart and flirtatious.

Two gay men snowed in for three days—things happen. Really good things. By the time the storm clears, Hutch finds himself a little too attached to Jude Devereaux, San Francisco-based male model. But is Jude what he claims to be? Or is he entangled in the secrets Hutch moved to Alaska to escape?

Sue’s Review

Snow, steam, and secrets certainly sums up this story. I don’t really want to give away any spoilers, so I’m not going to say too much about the plot or characters.  But because it’s by Eli Easton you know it will be a compelling read/listen.  It’s well written and draws you in as you find out more about these two guys. It's a stranded in a snowy cabin trope with a twist and the story went in a completely different direction to what I anticipated.  Hutch and Jude have a few days alone in the cabin to fall for each other before it all appears to fall apart for them.  There’s an action-packed second half and is very different from the usual Dreamspun Desires Romances. It’s still a little OTT like many of the stories in the series and you have to be prepared to take the plot with a pinch of salt.  There’s fluff and insta-love, but there’s also a darker side to this story, with a touch of gore.

NARRATION

Hearing it as an audiobook made the story even more exciting—almost like watching a James Bond film. John Solo’s narration is superb and kept my attention throughout. He carries the story and characters along through the dialogue, the fast-paced narrative, and the sizzling sexual tension very well. The steamy scenes are emotion-packed and erotic and the action scenes are full of suspense and tension. John gives each of the characters a unique voice and was a great choice for this story.

Meet Eli Easton

EliEaston_Road_bwHaving been, at various times and under different names, a minister’s daughter, a computer programmer, a game designer, the author of paranormal mysteries, a fan fiction writer, an organic farmer and a profound sleeper, Eli is happily embarking on yet another incarnation as a m/m romance author.

As an avid reader of such, she is tinkled pink when an author manages to combine literary merit, vast stores of humor, melting hotness and eye-dabbing sweetness into one story. She promises to strive to achieve most of that most of the time. She currently lives on a farm in Pennsylvania with her husband, three bulldogs, three cows and six chickens. All of them (except for the husband) are female, hence explaining the naked men that have taken up residence in her latest fiction writing.
