There are worse things than being stranded in a blizzard.
Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason: he’s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won’t be unrealistic, either—which means romantic commitments are off the table.
Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He’s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he’s facing yet another holiday season alone.
When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion leads to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever.
Yes, I read this story in the middle of a heat wave during a quintessential Texas August. I also read it during a time I was trying not to read a book that brought me to tears. I failed on that count.
Marc and Trevor are perfect for each other, except Trevor’s little deadly secret. My heart breaks for Trevor from the opening scene. It breaks again for Marc when he finds out about Trevor’s prognosis. It breaks on final time when Marc finds out life is more than being the best lawyer in the office and begins to live. Trevor changes Marc for the better. Marc saves Trevor. They are beautiful together from beginning to end.
All this takes place around the holidays, of course. As a holiday story, it is expected to have a happy ending. Chase does not disappoint. It is a beautiful ending and not the trite ending I initially feared.
I think the highest compliment I can pay this story is the fact that it will be placed on my annual holiday re-read shelf.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
