Sometimes starting over is the only choice.
Chris Lambrough is having a run of bad luck. He’s lost his job and his boyfriend and is feeling depressed. His best friend Jenny tells him about an ad she’s noticed where The Muddy Mountain Ski Resort is looking for waiters. Chris has restaurant experience and since his New Year’s Resolution is to learn to ski it seems like a nice opportunity to jump start his life.
Trevor Brown is a ski instructor at the resort. He befriends Chris right away and the have undeniable chemistry. But Trevor has guilt over the death of his lover, Lane, two years earlier. Can the two of them learn to trust each other and move forward and forget the past?
This was a pretty good book. Very intriguing in ways. Kinda led you on a little bit as far as the storyline to keep you hooked. And I am actually anxious to see if there will be another book. I can see where it would go if so. Well hopefully. There’s a story for a Mason there somewhere lol. But anyway. The storyline had a few moments where I was like what? And I was so hooked to find out what happened next.
Chris has made a New Year’s resolution. He wants to learn to ski. He figures it’s a resolution that never happens so he just said it to say it. Until his friend Jenny ended up hooking him into a job with a ski resort 3 hours away. With the way his life has been going, dumped by his ex (who keeps popping up conveniently *ahem*), losing his job and not getting paid his last paycheck, (and that’s just some of it), he figures why not listen to her and get a fresh start somewhere. So he gets the job and takes off. He makes a resolution to also not jump into bed with someone right off the bat and actually take time to get to know someone. The minute he gets there to the resort though, and he wanders how he’s going to do it, because the hottest guy he’s ever seen with the greenest eyes ever is flirting with him, AND he’s an instructor. Trevor is just so hot and chemistry is exploding between them. But Chris puts his foots down, regretfully, and tries to stick to his rule. But the pull is too much and about a week later, it happens. But there is so much history going on around Chris and he’s confused and wary and doesn’t know if he can really trust Trevor. And it seems everyone wants them apart. Especially the memory of Trevor’s dead lover, Lane.
Sometimes the best intentions seem to fall apart in front of our eyes. Chris is determined to try to make a new start, but his new boss is an ass, the ski instructor is flirting with him, and he doesn’t know if he’s going to last a week. He wants to, but another part of him wants to run. He’s scared to get involved with Trevor, for fear of the same old thing happening, and he doesn’t want it to be awkward at work. But he definitely has the hots for the man. Trevor wants to be with Chris too, but after getting kind of a brush off, he has steered clear, not sure what to think. Trevor has secrets that haunt him to this day. The death of his lover, Lane, still weighs heavily on him and he’s scared to open up again. So he feels like if the door is going to shut in his face, why bother? But these two want to be together so bad. But it’s going to take a lot of trust and opening up to do it. And communication. After a near death experience, things kinda really come to a head, and it’s basically shit or get off the pot. These two have to make a decision to be together or go their separate ways. Fortunately, chemistry seems to speak for them lol. I admire both of these boys. Chris is more or less…I hate to say spineless…but pretty close. But he decided to face his fears and make a fresh start in life and try to stick to his guns and his rules to make things better. Trevor is still more or less living in the past with Lane, and he had to finally let go in order to move on with Chris. Very hard to do for both of them. But in order to get to something better, you have to let go of the fear and move on. Anything worth having is worth fighting for.
