This is a well written start to the Alaskan trilogy, albeit a trite and somewhat over written/done idea. Unfortunately there is so much going on and with so many couples that the author at times, shortchanges Sloan and Walker. Their story took short shrift and I found that to be annoying as well as distracting from what a trilogy could have been.
I read a lot about Alaska and was thrilled to see a romance centered there, yet the nature of the area barely played into the story.
Sloan and Walker were ultra sweet sometimes to the point of giving me a diabetic coma. And although it seems that there will be some animosity amongst the next 2 sets of couples, the underlying "sweetness" is there.
