Nobody says no to a Prescott.

Not even one of their own.

Living up to expectations had never been easy, but when I went after something, I got it. Success. Money. Victory. I was standing on the doorstep to having it all. There was only one thing standing in my way.

Power and prosperity are overrated. Especially when they come at a price. When enough became enough, I walked away. Nothing had ever tempted me to look back, until one day the past showed up in my backyard. 

I’m not so sure I can walk away a second time.



At first (just a second ha!) I had mixed feelings about Holden. I wondered if he had a backbone and why he was acting like he had none. But after I understood why, I could commit to him.
His father sends him to the cold arctic town of Sawyer’s Ferry in Alaska, with a mission and when he doesn't succeed, there will be no place for him anymore in New York, no nothing, no apartment, no job as a surgeon, and he will be completely cut off financially.

Gage, on the other hand, is a strong, independent, and determined, and not afraid to make big decisions.
He left New York two years before to move to Alaska and he never looked back. Now he is a surgeon in there.
 When they meet there is irritation, especially when Gage knows why Holden is here, but... there is also attraction... undeniable attraction.
Now Holden has to make a big decision possibly his biggest.
 This is a kind story with even kinder people in it. The journey is about discovering each other, and the amazingly good feelings of being together and knowing this is it, with no unnecessary sharp edges. They fit like a glove, at home, and at work, their physical connection is insatiable.

The dynamic between them is really great to watch. The story is written in a very appetizing way, the scenery is original and the whole story is just one you will start and won't stop until it's over. A great read it is!
