Boone Daniels seems to have trouble finishing things. Along with the half dozen or so novels he’s started, only to abandon mid-way through, his love life could be best described as a series of drive-bys.
Boone has spent the past week staying at a ski lodge in the tiny mountain town of Summit City. He’s been using his time alone to write while waiting for his boyfriend to join him for their anniversary.
What happens to Boone when he winds up dumped on the eve of his one-year anniversary and ends up at a bar having one too many cocktails? Wade Walker.
Can I just say how much I love Boone? I feel like he’s my spirit animal. Seriously. He’s so full of snark and sass and is so confident in his sexual past. I laughed so many times and loved his reactions and quick wit. I was also impressed at his ability to think so maturely at times. His inner monologue was to die for.
Basically, Boone was set up to take this two week ski trip with his boyfriend for their one year anniversary, but when he got up the mountain, his boyfriend dumped him and assuaged his guilt by gifting him the trip. After getting drunk at the bar, he ends up in bed the morning after with an ache and a giant in bed with him.
I loved his reaction when he realized that the giant, Wade, was his ski instructor. I didn’t love Wade, to be honest. I felt like there really wasn’t anything there. He owned the town in that he was their golden boy. Other than that, I didn’t see much personality there. It sure didn’t seem like enough to tie Boone to him.
The series has definitely sparked my interest and as much as I hate a cliffhanger, I’m excited to see where the next installation takes me.
