After being left at the altar, California girl Sabrina Tate needs to make a fast getaway. With her famous overbearing parents and the paparazzi hot on her heels, where else is a jilted bride to go to lick her wounds but Alaska? With only her tropical honeymoon clothes in tow, she makes her escape. For two weeks, she’ll live on her own and prove to herself—and her family—that she can make it without a husband.
Zak Forrester is a man on a mission. He’s turned his rugged yet luxurious Alaskan lodge into a hotspot for hunters, all in the hope to make up for a painful event in his past. But when Sabrina—one of the rare women to enter his rugged realm—stumbles into his world, he can’t get rid of her fast enough. He has no time for her yoga, vegetarian meal requests, or Scrabble.
Soon, neither can resist the other, and two hearts collide. With time ticking away, they have to decide where they belong. Is a life in a different world better than being a world apart?
This was a cute and quick read. I just wished there was a little more building in the story.
Sabrina was literally “Dear John’d” at the altar. So, embarrassed and a little relieved as she was (she was really marrying Kyle because that’s what she was expected to do not because she loved him), she ran off to Alaska with only her honeymoon clothes that was in the limo paced for Hawaii and flip flops to boot! (Pun intended)
There she meets Zak one of the owners of the lodge her friend told her to go to. The lodge was all booked up. She hadn’t counted on that, she had just run and gone with whatever her friend said. But Zak took pity on her and let her stay in her brother’s apartment. He and all the lodgers were out hunting moose. So the lodge with the gorgeous surroundings of mountains and hot springs and the hand built fireplace was all theirs alone in a cold quiet part of the world. Romance builds quickly.
The description of the area had me wanting to go there and find a lodge. I have been in hot springs in the winter before and there is nothing like it!
I had a hard time with Sabrina at first. She was a little off. And Zak saw that too. I was surprised he was so easily taken by her with his thoughts on her in the beginning. I was a little behind in warming up to Sabrina. But I was all in with Zak. He is a wonderful, caring and doting man. When I did warm up to Sabrina, she was schmoozin’ it up with the people of Alaska and they were warming up to her quickly.
Eventually, Sabrina has to go back and face the press. She is a politician’s daughter and her wedding is making the front page as soon as the paparazzi finds her. She also has a function she is hosting.
When she leaves, they both have to figure out what they really want. Sabrina also needs to talk to Kyle.
Anyway, the rest you have to read about. So if you like Alaska, Moose hunting, hot springs, cold weather, sitting in front of a beautiful roaring fireplace, Scrabble, yoga, politicians, paparazzi getting in the way, events with men in tuxedos, mushing, puppies and finding love then this might be for you.
