This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
The narrator did an excellent job on both the female and male voice with the right amount of emotion,
Marley has moved back home after a robbery and pistol whipping while living in Seattle. Gage is reopening his grandparents ski lodge. They meet and have an attraction immediately that neither has felt before. The dialogue and secondary characters were enjoyable and added to the story. I like that it didn't drag on forever and both parties were cautious falling in love
Some steam, but not over done...I really liked both H and h.
Worth the credit and listen

I was looking for a distracting, fun holiday story. I love Alaska and military men, but I found this disappointing. Way too predictable, and too cheesy. I swear, if I heard "Rock hard abs" one more time, I would have thrown my phone across the room! And I thought the narrator could have done a better job...some of her characters sounded like James Cagney. sorry, just not my cup of tea.
I brought Christmas on the Last Frontier, expecting the story to be completely different & based back in the old time in the Homestead, but it's not & what a heck of a HOT love story it is between ex Navy Seal Gage Hamilton, who's come back to Alaska after the family being away for a good couple of decades. and Gage had come back & left the Military (& it's here I was a little disappointed as we don't see him open up to his love interest about things, though that's only me being pinikity, as we do know his story) after he had been given the majority hold of the family's old Town's Ski Lodge & decided that he had to get it up & going again, especially after talking to his new neighbour computer advertiser Marley Adams, who herself had not long come back to Alaska from living & working in Seattle for the post decade. AND she came back due to not feeling safe there & just needed to be home.
But heck these 2 connected from the off start & they both helped each other, she with helping getting the lodge up together with him, old & new employees & Gage helping with the suspense of finding out who's contacting her & who it was that destroyed her life as she knew it, in Seattle.
But hey you have to thank that person in the long run as if that hadn't happened in her life, these 2 HOT love birds find, help & fall in love with each other.
Recommended Read & even narrator Hollis McCarthy wasn't too bad
Any additional comments?
I never listen to an audiobook from this author before I received audiobook 3 in this series from the author herself. Because of that book, I decided to start this series from the beginning and that's the reason why I now write this :)
I really do like this contemporary romance series from J. H. Croix. First of because the story feels real - like stories without fantastic heroes and an unrealistic storyline. It contains great alpha males and sweet women, a lot of hot and steamy sex and in this one, you even find a bad guy. You also find two people who, despite not feeling sure about needing or wanting love, never let the love for each other go. The fight in this series is the inside fight in the main characters about accepting love finding them even when they weren't looking - but when sparkles fly they have to give in!
I love J.H. Croix descriptions of Alaska - actually so much that I really wanna visit Alaska myself even though I'm definitely more of a "sun-girl". The descriptions of the nature, people and the connections between people are so well written that you're almost able to watch the scenes in front of you while you listen to the narrator.
The narrator is well chosen for this series, and I'm so glad to see Hollis McCarthy has been narrating all 3 audiobooks in this series, and I cross my fingers she will be chosen as the narrator for the rest of the books in the series!
