Champagne powder snow, gorgeously groomed slopes, and elegant hotels draw the expert and the wealthy to the exclusive Wapiti Creek Ski Resort, but for Jake Landon and Kurt Carlson, the lure is work. A novice skier, Jake's been assigned to run the bunny lift, but Kurt's afraid he'll be stuck shoveling snow all winter. Instructing at a private ski school should be his dream job, but it brings giggles and sideways glances among their new friends.
All summer, Jake and Kurt were alone in the wilderness. If Jake wanted to stay in the closet, it didn't matter. Now they have to navigate a relationship in public, where the five-year-old twins who've adopted Jake as their ski buddy are as big a nuisance as the ski patroller who has a crush on him. Would-be friends, vicious coworkers, and the perils of the mountain could mean the end for Kurt and Jake, but their biggest danger comes from each other.
Bonus story: "Mistletoe on the Mountain"
Jake's agonizing over what to give Kurt for their first Christmas together - he knows what Kurt wants most can't be gift wrapped.

A fast, fun, thrill ride.
What made the experience of listening to Snow on the Mountain the most enjoyable?
The character and relationship development between Jake and Kurt.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Snow on the Mountain?
The scene in the cabin with the bed and the fire. Very passionate and sexy.
What about Finn Sterling’s performance did you like?
That it got better than the first book in this series. Sterling used the same tones for Jake and Kurt, but those subtle nuances and inflections were there this time.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes it was, and I did.
Any additional comments?
Jake Landon and Kurt Carlson are still learning the basics of being in a relationship. They spent the entire summer under the stars in the Colorado Mountains and quickly went from friends and co-workers to lovers. Now they’ve traded in their ranger uniforms for parkas and ski’s for their new home, new jobs at the exclusive Wapiti Creek Ski Resort. Forest fires have been replaced by jealous co-workers, misplaced affections and a secret the resort keeps that threatens Jake and Kurt’s still fragile relationship.
While there were still a few plot holes and unbelievable aspects to this story, I really enjoyed it far more than the first in this series. The character development and storyline were stronger, as were the secondary characters, and the descriptives in this story were more visually attainable for me. There is no question that Jake and Kurt love each other, it is the day to day aspects of being a couple they are having trouble dealing with. Jake isn’t in the closet per say, but he won’t love Kurt openly, and this causes a bit of a strain. But at the end of the day they know what they mean to each other and Kurt is frustrated, but infinitely patient.
The narration was so much better this time around as well. Singer stuck with Finn Sterling who had a few issues telling the first story, in my opinion, but with this story he found his footing. While he still used the same tone for Jake and Kurt, there were subtle inflections and nuances in this story that weren’t there before. Almost like Sterling had to get acquainted with the characters before he could really give them a voice.
Full of emotion, danger and just the right amount of fluff, Snow on the Mountain is a fast, fun, thrill ride down the sometimes rocky slope of love. I’d recommend this read to all my fellow hopeless romantics.
