We’re back in Brig’s Ferry Bay, the lovely Maine town that Misty and K Webster created. Well, we’re back in that world, at least. Adler’s Hart takes its time to get there, but it’s worth it to get there, so buckle up and get ready.
We start with Adler. He’s in Ketchikan, Alaska, and has just finished his season of fishing. It’s been a long season, winter is coming, and he’s suposed to leave the following day. That means that it’s time for him to go to the hook up app that he uses and find a one night stand. He only allows himself to hook up with someone the night before he leaves, and then he moves on. He’s very much one and done. So this night, he pulls up the app, and finds the perfect man just waiting there. He’s younger, he’s pretty, and he’s just perfect.
Hart is home from college for break. Home to Alaska from LA, talk about your changes. Among other things, he’s helping his parents, because his dad hurt his back, so when he gets a notification from a hook up app, he’s more than a little shocked. When he looks at the information about the other guy, he’s all for it, and arranges a meet for later that night. When he tells his parents that he’s going on, they warn him that a big snowstorm is coming in. And, whe nhe gets out to the vehicles to grab a car, his dad’s truck won’t start.
Of course, being the smart people that I know you are, you can see all the foreshadowing happening here. Of course Adler and Hart end up snowed in together, in a crappy hotel room, for many, many, many hours. There’s all the happy sexy funn times that you might possibly want, but there’s more than that too. They spend time talking to each other and learning more about each other. Eventually, as it does, time passes, and they are able to get home. Hart goes back home to his parents and Adler gets in his truck and heads south.
I felt so sorry for Adler. No one has ever loved him and given him the time and attention that he needed. His parents hated him and tossed him out, people have hurt him, and then his friends and business partners either died or left. OK, the last one isn’t as bad as the others, but he already had this whole unlovable feeling going on, so that just added on to it. The thing is, he’s just a really nice guy though. He’s really got a good heart and he just wants things to be good.
Hart is super sweet too. He doesn’t like being in a small town, and living in a small town, I can get that, but he loves his parents and he wants to do what he can to help them. OK, he doesn’t want to be stuck in the small town he grew up in, which is different. I like Hart, and I like that he spends the time with Adler and that he really sees Adler in a way that no one else does.
These guys have their issues, but they are a good couple, and I enjoyed their book a lot.
