Against the Sky (Brodies of Alaska #2)

★★★

22046517[1]By Kat Martin

ALASKA
In America’s last wilderness, there are no limits to what a man can do.

For detective Nick Brodie, that means keeping the perps off the streets of Anchorage 24/7. Nick has never backed down from danger, but after the horrors he’s seen, he’s definitely in need of a break.

Samantha Hollis never thought she’d meet anyone like Nick, especially in a place like Las Vegas. But after one reckless, passionate night, she discovers the charismatic stranger is everything she wants in a man. But can he ever be anything more than a one-night stand?

When Nick invites her to Alaska, Samantha decides to find out, never guessing the depths she’ll discover in him or the tangle of murder, kidnapping, and danger about to engulf them both…

My review

The book is the second installment in a series and I haven’t read the first one.
I have enjoyed some of Kat Martin’s historical novels and wanted try her contemporary books a try. Unfortunately, I couldn’t connect to Samantha, I believe in compromises and “home is where your heart is” and for her it’s more like “I don’t think I could live in Alaska hence Nick is not the man for me” without even considering to try or to find a compromise. I also had a problem with the pace of the book, first it was really slow, then everything happens at once and then slow again.
