Blurb: The weather outside is frightful, but this Minnesota northwoods cabin is getting pretty hot.
Stylist Frankie Blackburn never meant to get lost in Logan, Minnesota, but his malfunctioning GPS felt otherwise, and a record-breaking snowfall ensures he won’t be heading back to Minneapolis anytime soon. Being rescued by three sexy lumberjacks is fine as a fantasy, but in reality the biggest of the bears is awfully cranky and seems ready to gobble Frankie right up.
Marcus Gardner wasn’t always a lumberjack—once a high-powered Minneapolis lawyer, he’s come home to Logan to lick his wounds, not play with a sassy city twink who might as well have stepped directly out of his past. But as the northwinds blow and guards come down, Frankie and Marcus find they have a lot more in common than they don’t. Could the man who won’t live in the country and the man who won’t go back to the city truly find a home together? Because the longer it snows, the deeper they fall in love, and all they want for Christmas is each other.
Warning: Contains power outages, excessive snowfall, and incredibly sexy bears.
This was like Goldilocks and the three bears…all Christmassy and Gay…so what’s not to love? Frankie is lost during a blizzards and ends up in a small town an hour or so from where he needs to be. When he pulls into a diner to figure out exactly where that is, he has absolutely no doubt that the three bears sitting at a nearby booth proves that it’s not here and he needs to keep moving on, no matter how bad the weather is.
Unfortunately, Frankie’s little car is no match for a Minnesota blizzard and a moose, and into the ditch he goes. There’s nothing to be done now except to hike his way to safety. What’s the chance that Goldilocks finds himself an abandoned cabin? And what’s the chance that it’s empty and he decides to take a nap? And finally, what’s the chance that the cabin belongs to the three bears that Frankie ran from at the diner? Yep, it’s true and Frankie awakens to find that he was napping in grumpy papa bear’s bed.
Grumpy papa bear, also known as Marcus, is not happy to find the golden twink sleeping in his bed. He is on the recovery end of a bad break up with a twink who reminds him too much of Frankie. The last thing he wants, or trusts, is another twink like that! But he can’ deny that Frankie is exactly the kind of man that Marcus is attracted to. The other two bears are Marcus’s best friends and also gay. So lucky for Frankie his big scary bears are actually great guys.
This was really a wonderful story and I wished I had read it closer to Christmas. There is much more to the plot than just 4 gay men stranded in a cabin. It’s the story of friendship and survival and letting go of the past. I am fast becoming a big Heidi Cullinan fan and highly recommend this book to everyone.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
