Category: Contemporary, World of Love
After three winters in Antarctica, Simon Bancroft is an old hand on the ice. The harsh weather and extreme isolation aren’t for everyone, but he enjoys the tight-knit community at McMurdo Station… and lately he’s enjoyed watching the hot new researcher, Asher Delaney, who’s recently arrived to study the aurora. But Simon’s just a janitor. Asher doesn’t even know he exists.
When Simon’s friends propose a wager, he gets a chance to introduce himself to Asher at last. But Asher defies all of Simon’s assumptions, and suddenly he finds himself reevaluating everything he thought he knew about Asher, himself, and falling in love at the bottom of the world.
World of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the globe.
This is the first book I’ve come across that is set in Antarctica and it was a very interesting setting, though the thought of how cold it was kinda had me diving under my blankets…in 87F weather!
Simon was so infatuated with the thought of being with Asher, and I loved how once he had the chance to be around Asher he didn’t just rush into it. It was great seeing these two men who are so different find out who they could be together.
Asher was so different than what I expected; he was smart and shy and just a beautiful soul. I loved seeing the different sides of him and how he displayed those traits around everyone there.
I’ve never read an Elyse Springer book before, but I am so glad I had the chance to read this one!
