Blurb

Up in the Alps, a single night can change your life.
Struggling college student and self-taught graphic artist Justin Bennet isn’t the most self-confident guy, but he knows he’s good at two things: snowboarding and sex. Why does Andi, the hot instructor at the Tyrolean ski resort, pretend Justin doesn’t exist?
Justin becomes all but obsessed with the idea of scoring with the young Austrian. Because for all the man’s reserve, he made it quite obvious he likes Justin—at least from the neck down.
When Justin books a private heliboarding trip with Andi as his guide, he thinks he’s one step away from striking gold.
But then the forces of nature take over, trapping the men in a snowstorm, and things get real. What was supposed to be about some freeriding fun and inviting a closeted guy to start exploring his options suddenly becomes about survival—and the hidden truths of the soul.

Review by Aerielle

This is a short but sweet instalove story. The story is told from Justin’s point of view and most of the story is him trying to get Andi to notice him. Desperate Justin books a private trip with Andi the day before he has to leave Austria. An accident and storm causes the men to have to stay the night up on the glacier and there they declare their feelings for each other. I liked the basis of this story. Justin is very arrogant at the beginning of the story but towards the end realizes how deep his feelings for Andi really are and he’s prepared to give up his life in the States to be with him.

Review by Truus
This was just one delicious read. From annoying to sweet sweet tenderness.

Justin and his two best friends are on holiday at a ski resort. Snow boarding is something he is good at.
Justin is over his head when he sees the stunning Andi, son of the owner, instructor and member of the band who also plays in the resort.
Justin will have Andi in his bed in to time… that’s the plan… Andi does everything in his power to avoid Justin… not to be with him alone… and he succeeds.
This all brings Justin on the edge of insanity… he doesn’t understand it.
Then they are both on a risky sloop with bad weather …

Such a nice and funny read. Justin so confused by the cold shoulder from his obsession.
The circumstances they were in is excellent done. The environments ditto. I found it a really captivating read. Justin is even a bit annoying and embarrassing with his constant attempts to conquer Andi. In the cabin we meet a totally different Andi, and I loved it. Nice so see Justin change from a horny guy with only one purpose into a responsible caring sweetheart.
Nice fast paced read with a great end. It’s a short read and goshh I would love to see them in a more developed relationship. I think Andi could be an excellent dominant and Justin deeply in love kissing the ground Andi stands on.
