He left home to escape. She made a new life out of guilt. Neither one expected to find love—but not even the Arctic can cool this steamy romance.

Maya knows she’s doing the right thing by moving to Alaska with her parents, but that doesn’t mean she has to be happy about it. Forced to give up a scholarship to a prestigious art school, she relocates to a Podunk town with one college the size of her high school cafeteria, all to help hold her family together after the death of her little sister. But a fresh start can only do so much.

Jake doesn’t like handouts and he certainly doesn’t need any distractions. Working on a salmon boat in Kodiak, Alaska is the only way to pay for his mother’s surgery back in the lower forty-eight. Juggling college courses and constant worry about his mother’s health, Jake couldn’t imagine anything else fitting into his life. That is, until he meets Maya, the sexy Californian artist who tints his world in technicolor.

But when Maya’s family starts to crumble and Jake’s mom takes a turn for the worse, will they drag each other down, or can they find what they were missing all along?

In this new adult romance, Theresa DaLayne paints a swoon-worthy story about life under the midnight sun, following your heart, and learning to live on the edge.

My Thought

This book was like a bittersweet love. I cry sometime, smile and all in love of these characters.

I like Maya but at the same time I wanted to slap her in the face. I hate dependent girls; I know that she was passing so for many things but that was making her stronger not make her needy or something. But my favorite was Jake. He was stronger and steady and he didn’t left that circumstance break him even where they were really hard as Maya.

I believe in the equal genre so, I think that if Jake could make it, Maya also could. But of course, nobody in real life could take those kinds of situations as I said, everyone have their own way to deal with the pain.

I’m not into this kind the books because I really don’t like this drama too much. But I need to say the story caught you very much and the writer style make the read very entertaining and easy to goes through.

Overall, I like this book but the characters don’t full me enough at the end. I recommend it to those who like stories of characters as damage as the hard road they need to go through to find love.

About the Author

Theresa DaLayne is a north-south-east-western kind of girl with a quirky personality to match her nomad life. Born in California, she migrated to three different cities in Washington State, a tiny island in Alaska, North Carolina, and finally to the suburbs of Ohio where she currently lives with her husband, three kids, vegetarian cat, and her ungrateful fish.

Always on the lookout for a new story, Theresa is a shameless eavesdropper and will take anyone who provides inspiration and mold them into a character without a second thought. She enjoys writing both paranormal and contemporary stories, considering her mind wanders between worlds of fantasy while she’s forced to live in the real world, very much against her will.
