I have always enjoyed stories that featured the Alaskan wilderness or in general the untamed openness of the state itself. So when I first came across this story I knew it was material that I wanted to read and for the most part I think that the story was entertaining, love story that I found to be likable.
The first thing that I liked the most about the book was the fact that Sabrina, the heroine escaped to Alaska without really considering what she was getting herself into. In many ways I would consider Sabrina to be a runaway bride that is running more than just from her potential husband. I really liked Sabrina's character as she was sweet and someone who was determined to prove more to herself than to anyone else that she was capable of having her own life.
As for Zak, the hero I didn't take to his character in the beginning as he is a character that is a little rougher around the edges. I was somewhat skeptical on whether or not I could believe that Zak and Sabrina were capable of reaching their HEA ending. Yet, as I read the story I began to like Zak and I was happy to see that his love for Sabrina turned out to be a second chance for the duo.
My biggest flaw with this story was the attraction at the beginning. I could easily tell that the chemistry between Zak and Sabrina was present, but I wanted the author to go one step further. I wanted her to convince me that that the twosome were about to have wild adventure without really giving away that sense. Basically I wanted the author to explore the chemistry in more details even if it were little antics exchanged between the characters. Such details is traits that I expect to find as a romance reader.
I think overall I would recommend this book to fellow readers because it did turned out to be a great story about unexpected love in the heart of Alaska.
