Review: Anders last relationship with a colleague turned bad, not only did he move out, he moved to Alaska and started a new life there. He loves his new job and colleagues. Even though the sexy native has caught his eye, he tries to keep things platonic. Until he finds himself facing death in an earthquake and realizing life is too short.
Ujaruk was hurt in a past relationship being used by an under-grad. He likes his job and finds himself very attracted to the sexy red-headed Anders but is afraid to have his heartbroken, but is heart-ache scarier than a deadly earthquake?
I really loved this story. There was a good build up, we knew Anders past from the prologue and found out more back story later from both Anders and Ujaruk. There is a bit of mystery about the mine, and the Earthquake plays a big part in the story.
I would have liked to know more about what they were looking for in the mine and why the other men were there. Other than that the story was fantastic. Just enough back-story, romance and sexual tension.
If you like natural disasters, geologists, slow building relationships, not a lot of sex and a sweet, romantic story, this is for you
