Blurb: Two months ago Frey moved to Svalbard, and Jørgen hasn’t been able to stop thinking about him since. But every time he thinks about asking Frey out, the fear that fills Frey’s eyes stops him. If keeping his distance keeps Frey from being afraid, then so be it.
Frey moved to Svalbard because it was supposed to be safe. He wasn’t supposed to fall in love, and he definitely wasn’t supposed to keep running into poachers.
Review: The third book in the Arctic Love series is short and sweet just like Frey. We finally get to see the relationship between Frey and Jørgen develop into more than the heated glances and shy interactions that they have been sharing for since Frey moved to Svalbard.
Frey is scared all the time. Shy and introverted by nature he has become even more timid. Something has happened to break his trust in the world and the people around him. Frey has a huge crush on Jørgen and he wants to get to know him better, but he’s afraid. But slowly and sweetly Jørgen patiently pulls Frey out of his shell.
Jørgen is a good man. He has a lot going on in his life and is very close with his family and friends. From the first moment he met Frey he knew he wanted to get to know the beautiful man better. He is so patient with Frey. He knows that Frey is worth the time and the gentle wooing.
I enjoyed the slow romance and the time that the men took getting to know each other. They were so sweet and cute together. The issues with the poachers were sad and wasteful. There is no excuse for killing protected animals for sport.
I wish there had been a little more to this story. While we got to see the men spend more time together and see more of the landscape of Svalbard I would have liked to be able explore a little more of the details.
