Angel Smith is finally ready to leave Antarctica for a second chance at life. But on what was meant to be her last day, the remote research station she’s been calling home is attacked. Hunted and scared, she and irritatingly gorgeous glaciologist Ford Cooper barely make it out with their lives…only to realize that in a place this remote, there’s nowhere left to run.
Isolated with no power, no way to contact the outside world, and a madman at their heels, Angel and Ford must fight to survive in the most inhospitable—and beautiful—place on earth. But what starts as a partnership born of necessity quickly turns into an urgent connection that burns bright and hot. They both know there is little chance of making it out alive, and yet they are determined to survive against the odds—and possibly, the world.
This was the Lost in Romance Book Club pick for January. My cohost suggested this book for us to read something a little bit different to what we have been reading and I’m glad she did. I don’t typically read a whole lot of romantic suspense. I’ve probably read a handful of romantic suspense at this point and some have worked and some haven’t. Luckily this one worked.
When it comes to romantic suspense or any other similar genre the reasons they don’t tend to work for me as often is because there isn’t enough balance between the romance and the suspense. A lot of the time one or the other usually takes over the plot. With this book I felt like it was pretty well balanced. It started off mostly being about the suspense side of the plot with a hint of potential romance and then things really amped up even more for the suspense and the romance as well. I can see where people will think the romance took over the story in the last half but I felt like it was really well done and the suspense of what could possibly happen next was always there.
There’s a lot of action with some twists thrown in some danger and some steamy scenes. Overall I ended up really enjoying this book and definitely want to continue on with the series because it did end on a bit of a cliffhanger.
