Blurb: There are worse things than being stranded in a blizzard.
Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason: he’s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won’t be unrealistic, either—which means romantic commitments are off the table.
Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He’s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he’s facing yet another holiday season alone.
When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion leads to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever.
Review – Book: Just as Trevor begins to accept that he might be living his final days on Earth, he meets Marcus, a crazy workaholic lawyer. Their chemistry is incendiary, but it may not be enough. Is it cruel to even get involved?
I don’t want to give more of the story away… but… it ends on a very HEA.
I’m so glad this is being released near the Holidays because it’s so mushy, tear-jerking, sweet, and lovely and reading/listening to this around the holidays adds to that flavor.
I loved Trevor and Marcus as a couple. I loved Trevor’s family! I loved Marcus’ friends! I loved the way L.C. Chase found us a (somewhat) plausible resolution to a seemingly impossible problem.
If you are in the mood for sap, holidays, tears, and happiness – give this one a try!
Review – Audio: I’m always a fan of Nick J. Russo. It’s so nice to be able to just TRUST that the narration is going to be done well. Sure, he doesn’t always pronounce the medical words right, but, probably nobody will notice. He’s great at the timing and the emotions – and there are so many feels in this book.
I loved Natalia’s accent and he gives each of the MCs their own, unique voice so it’s easy to follow.
If you need something more to cry about this holiday season – this will give you a lovely way to let those tears flow.
Overall Impression: It was amazing!
