Trucker Marshall Westray travels up and down the inhospitable Dalton Highway in Alaska delivering equipment to the oilfields at Prudhoe Bay. Leaving the town of Deadhorse for his last trip to Fairbanks before his vacation, he stops en route, climbs behind the cab and finds a man in his bed!
The stowaway is half naked and very easy on the eye. Luka tells Marshall he was desperate for the ride and begs him to take him all the way to Fairbanks. With Marshall’s job at stake, he’s not sure what the right thing is to do. He’s instantly attracted to the stranger and he knows the guy is in need of help – there’s more to his story than meets the eye. What should he do for the best when it’s just him and Luka and 498 miles of wilderness?
This is one of those books that I had a hard time writing a review for. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great either. It left me with just a meh feelings when I was finished.
Marshall is a truck driver who finds a half-naked man in his truck. Luka is running from an abusive boyfriend and literally has nothing but the clothes on his back, and those aren’t much because he’s half naked. Luka convinces Marshall to give him a ride to somewhere safe and Marshall reluctantly agrees.
Along the way there’s a push/pull between them that was entertaining, but I never really connected with either character. I learned about them in only a superficial way—nothing extremely deep or meaningful.
I liked seeing them together but there was so little of that I never felt overly bonded with their relationship.
This was a decent read but nothing fantastic.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
