Arctic Sun | Annabeth Albert
6 posts | 4 read
Everythings 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. Hes built a quiet life for himself in Alaska. But it doesnt stand a chance against the unrelenting pull of a man whos everything he shouldnt want. Ex-military mountain man Griffin Barrett likes his solitude. It keeps him from falling back into old habits. Bad habits. Hes 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. Nobodys ever made him want to stand stilluntil 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 hes in no position to stay put. With temptation lurking in close quarters, keeping even a shred of distance is a challenge neithers 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 youre looking for with an HEA/HFN. Its a promise! Publishers Note: Arctic Sun deals with topics some readers may find difficult, including sobriety and eating disorders. This book is approximately 95,000 words

I did some procrastinatory favourite author searching (my signature move, tbh) and discovered the tagged book is only $0.99 right now! It‘s a pretty recent release and I loved it.

suzisteffen Is that on Kobo? 9mo
xicanti @suzisteffen it is! It seems to be everywhere! 9mo
suzisteffen @xicanti OK! I have a Kobo account tied to my local bookstore (Kobo is pretty rare in the US as you perhaps know) & so boom, I got this book for $.99 USD. 😃Thanks for the rec! 9mo

Did I read a book with a blue-haired character, then dye my own hair blue?

Yes. Yes, I did.

It‘s actually teal, so it slides between blue and green depending on the light. I‘m pleased (and also not a selfie person due to extreme unphotogenicality).

Brewychock48 @xicanti ,I love your hair. Pretty💞 10mo
xicanti @Brewychock48 thank you! 10mo

Y‘all, I teared up SO OFTEN as I tore through Annabeth Albert‘s latest, Alaska-set, romance. It‘s full of great stuff like wilderness, photography, and hot sex, but at its core it‘s about two guys who learn to accept that recovery is HARD and full of patches where you‘re just Not Okay. Griffin‘s an alcoholic. River has an eating disorder. Their relationship doesn‘t fix either of these issues, but it does put them both on a path ⬇️

xicanti where they‘re better able to help themselves. It‘s emotionally charged—and, of course, potentially triggering, so please proceed with caution if necessary.

You DO want to look for this when it drops on April 1st, though. My crying jags aside, it made me want to do a LOT of hiking and convinced me I might like to visit Alaska after all. (MIGHT; a high of 20 in summer is a major turn-off.) I wish I could read River‘s books, too. They sound great.

I‘m all out of rice and so was Superstore* when I went to buy more, so I added extra greens to tonight‘s sorta-mapo tofu. The results are DELICIOUS. Much spicier without rice in the mix.

I‘m loving this book, too. I‘m just shy of 50% after my suppertime reading and I can‘t wait to see where this relationship goes next.

* I mean, they had RICE but it was all the expensive kind. I ain‘t such a foodie that I want to shell out for that.

umbrellagirl Looks delish! 10mo
xicanti @umbrellagirl I‘ll definitely make it again! The tofu soaked up all the goodness the greens, sausages, and chilli paste gave off. 10mo
Tamra Soooo yummy! 10mo
xicanti @Tamra I can‘t wait to make it again! It was so good I ate the whole pan instead of saving half for tomorrow like I planned. 10mo

I usually make the mistake of starting Annabeth Albert novels right before bed, but today I dove in after supper. I‘m learning!

...except my battery‘s pretty low thanks to yesterday‘s Robin Hobb binge read, so I‘m gonna have to pause and recharge soon. Damn. Still, I‘m enjoying ARCTIC SUN a lot as of the 15% mark.
