No Gentle Giant
: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
June 5th 2021
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Nicole Snow returns with a steamy and electrifying standalone romance thriller where one ginormous protector goes all-in to win Miss Unlucky.
You know the drill. Big hands, big feet, humongous— Yikes. We’re not going there for the thousandth time.
I’ve got small-town problems aplenty and zero time for Paxton “Alaska” Charter.
Crushing on smokeshow men with caveman vibes can’t end well.
Sure, he saved my little coffee shop from total ruin once.
Yes, my ovaries melt watching single dad of the century with his little boy.
Of course, I’d sleep like a baby if I let him work his former SEAL hero magic on my mess.
That’s not why I’m freaking out.
Nobody told me how devastatingly kind Alaska can be.
Or the fact that his stubborn heart’s even more guarded than mine.
If he comes barreling into my life, it’s certain doom.
And it’s all thrown to the wind the day his kiss claims me.
We have to say goodbye. Right now. Before it’s too late.
He can’t keep sheltering my body, stealing my heart, and igniting my soul.
I won’t drag this gentle giant down my abyss of ugly secrets.
But Alaska has other plans—and they scare me.
Because they all involve impossible happily ever afters, no matter the cost.
Full-length small-town standalone romance heaven. The butterflies come in force when one large and in-charge single dad steps in to rescue the girl who abandoned all hope and forgot how to love.
As I like Nicole Snow, I had picked this up from KU as soon as I knew she had a new book out.
It was, as she says, different, with a young boy who pulls at your heart strings with his camera and how he sees the world.
And then we have this very large man, who is very protective of his son, and has the nickname of Alaska, because that was where he lived. and also because he looked rather like a large bear who might live in the wilds of Alaska!
We also have a somewhat damaged heroine who needs help, that Alaska provides. And of course, there is a love story in the end, complicated by the need for the child to be protected and loved.
I always like her stories and this was no different. it is heartwarming to see the father’s love and his determination to provide the best life he can for his son. Good style and nice phrasing.
