Synopsis:

When a plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness, the best place to land is in the arms of a younger man…

Hotshot attorney Reuben Graham has finally agreed to take a vacation, when his plane suddenly plunges into the Alaskan wilderness.

Just his luck.

But his frustrations have only begun as he finds himself stranded with the injured, and superhot, pilot, a man who’s endearingly sociable—and much too young for Reuben to be wanting him this badly.

As the sole provider for his sisters and ailing father, Tobias Kooly is devastated to learn his injuries will prevent him from working or even making it back home. So when Reuben insists on giving him a place to recover, not even Toby’s pride can make him refuse. He’s never been tempted by a silver fox before, but something about Reuben is impossible to resist.

Recuperating in Reuben’s care is the last thing Toby expected, yet the closer they become, the more incredibly right it feels, prompting workaholic Reuben to question the life he’s been living. But when the pressure Toby’s under starts closing in, both men will have to decide if there’s room in their hearts for a love they never saw coming.

review

[I received an arc for an honest review]

He might not have all the answers, might not know what came next, but he knew that he wasn’t giving this up without one hell of a fight.

I was ecstatic to receive an early copy of Arctic Wild by Annabeth Albert, the second standalone in her Frozen Hearts series. I absolutely loved the first book, Arctic Sun, and I honestly loved this one just as much. This book brings us two men with an age gap and opposites in more than a few ways, finding their happily ever after.

Toby may be young but he has a ton of responsibility on his shoulders. After an accident in the beginning of the book he is left frustrated, angry and feeling helpless. He is stubborn as hell and fiercely proud. When he isn’t being a grump he is playful and fun. Reuben is much older than Toby and comes from a different type of lifestyle. He means well even if he doesn’t always think first before speaking, but he is so sweet kind and caring. Even though he hasn’t been a hands on dad before now, he does a great job reconnecting with his daughter. He tries too hard to give everyone what they need that he tends to forget about what he wants.

If I had time for hookup apps which I do not- I should put that on my profile. Silver Bear. Like a fox, but bigger and hotter. Think it would get me clicks?

Together they bring out the best in each other. Reuben helps take Toby’s mind off the responsibility and stress weighing on him. Toby helps Reuben live in the moment and step away from his day to day work mode and appreciate life. They are also too stinkin’ cute together when they are unconsciously in sync and finishing each other’s sentences. The intimate aspect of their relationship was also beautiful and packed with emotions. Even though when things were good they we’re good, their story is filled with a lot of insecurities, doubts and fears. They both questioned their age gap at times and Toby had a really hard time not feeling like he was a project for Reuben to fix.

Safe. Warm. Protected, Like it;s okay to stop thinking about what things mean and just be. Like I can be myself with you, all of me.

Once again, Annabeth Albert brings to life the Alaskan scenery and wildlife. Her writing is vivid and fantastic. Arctic Wild is a romance filled with strong characters with real problems finding their happily ever after with the odds against them.

He’d show him with his kiss, with his body, with his words that didn’t always come easily that what he felt was genuine and true.
