“Sexy, sensitive, smart, and thoroughly researched, Annabeth Albert’s gay romances have rocketed to the top of my to-be-read pile. I’ve fallen as hard for her books as her heroes fall for each other.”
—Christopher Rice, New York Times bestselling author of A Density of Souls and the Burning Girl Series
He’s built a quiet life for himself in Alaska. But it doesn’t stand a chance against the unrelenting pull of a man who’s everything he shouldn’t want.
Ex-military mountain man Griffin Barrett likes his solitude. It keeps him from falling back into old habits. Bad habits. He’s fought too hard for his sobriety to lose control now. However, his gig as a wildlife guide presents a new kind of temptation in superhot supermodel River Vale. Nothing the Alaskan wilderness has to offer has ever called to Griffin so badly. And that can only lead to trouble…
River has his own methods for coping. Chasing adventure means always moving forward. Nobody’s ever made him want to stand still—until Griffin. The rugged bush pilot is the very best kind of distraction, but the emotions he stirs up in River feel anything but casual, and he’s in no position to stay put.
With temptation lurking in close quarters, keeping even a shred of distance is a challenge neither’s willing to meet. And the closer Griffin gets to River, the easier it is to ignore every last reason he should run.

Great slow burn story
I really enjoyed Griffin and River’s story. I love books set in wilderness surroundings. This is very much a slow burn and slow paced story but I think due to the issues of the mc’s it had to be more drawn out than usual. Both characters have a lot of baggage to work through but I think this makes them seem more real. This story isn’t as raunchy as some of Annabeth’s other story but I still found it sexy. There are issues with anorexia and alcoholism that may be a trigger from some people.
Awesome new series
Awesome book loved the characters and how they came to be together. Also lved the descriptions of being in Alaska. Can’t wait for the rest of the series.
