Summary

Everything’s bigger in Alaska, especially the HEAs. Annabeth Albert kicks off the brand-new Frozen Hearts series with Arctic Sun, an opposites-attract romance between a rugged outdoorsman and a smoking-hot former male model.

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 super-hot supermodel River Vale. Nothing the Alaskan wilderness has to offer has ever called to Griffin so badly. 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.

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

Publisher’s note: Arctic Sun deals with topics some listeners may find difficult, including sobriety and eating disorders.

Feel bad saying but... it was boring

I literally didn't get into the book until the 7th hour and even then I had to force myself to pay attention. The book is seriously lacking in a spark and is quite boring in all honesty.

Hoping the rest are better

Good start to a new series.

I enjoyed this one. I think there was a bit in the middle that was quite slow but picked up again near the end. The chemistry in some parts felt a bit off but overall was good. I will be getting the next one in the series.

The Start of a Great Series

I love stories of Alaska. Griffin is a bear of a man who doesn’t do people. River is a former model who became a world traveler trying to heal his demons. Having to act as tour guide for a photo journey of Alaska is a way for Griffin to meet River and possibly connect with life. A sweet romance and performance. Recommend.

Boring!!

Omg!! I could NOT finish this audiobook. The pace of this story was so slow, not sure how any one stayed awake to listen. Not much experience with Cooper North narrating but, it'd be nice if you could tell the difference between the characters. I was really expecting this to be a lot better. Something different with the drinking and eating disorder. Don't waste your credit or your time. I really hate to write bad reviews.

Alaska 💙

This book, more than anything, made me want to go to Alaska even more. The places described, they’re beautiful. The experiences during the tour, priceless.

Then there’s River and Griffin. Two flawed people who are at, quite probably, in the most fragile state they’ve ever been, because they’re about to be vulnerable to each other. The blurb is about 30% of the story. It evolves into something more, something real, something deeper.

This story is quite simply about two imperfect men growing stronger together. 💙

Cooper North did a good job with his narration.
