Why I read this book: I enjoyed Book 1.
Foxxxy Golden Rule: Foxxxy is family.
When Luca’s life in Boston falls apart, he must leave behind his home, his job, and his chosen family—the feisty dancers of the Foxxxy Gentlemen’s Club. But his trip takes an unexpected turn when a blizzard careens him off the road and into the home of David, a Canadian silver fox who is every one of Luca’s lumberjack fantasies come to life.
It’s been three years since David’s divorce, and while he’s content with his remote rural life, he feels there’s something missing. He doesn’t know what that something is until a captivating young dancer crashes his car outside his cabin in the middle of a snowstorm and reminds David that there is more to life than simply existing.
Neither Luca nor David planned for this detour, but they only have to survive two days together in close quarters. How hard could it be? It’s not like 48 hours is long enough to fall in love. Or is it?
Discover how Luca and his sexy Canuck, David, met in this prequel novella to the Foxxxy series.
I loved Christian’s story, so I enjoyed going back in time to before he got his HEA to meet Luca. Luca’s had a rough go. He’s been dumped and, given his financial situation, it makes sense to retrench in his home in Michigan. His winter journey takes him through Canada, and somehow he winds up lost in the backwoods of Ontario. Cue the snowstorm, the snowbank, and the rescue.
Quickly – as a Canadian – I have to say the distances were off and the visibility was wonky.
Luca winds up being rescued by David, a lumberjack. David’s given up modern conveniences for living in the back county. He chops wood, shoots game, and heads into the city periodically to see his daughter who is in university. Basically, he’s happy. Then some Bostonian transplant winds up on his doorstep and suddenly he’s thinking of doing interesting things with his interloper. But Luca’s a guest. So jumping his bones would be rude, right? Except if it’s what Luca wants and he complies, then he’s just being a good host, right?
It’s all so confusing. And it doesn’t help that Luca is firmly an American city boy and David is firmly a Canadian living in the back country. No possibility of a happily ever after for them, right?
Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out. Speaking of listening, John York does a great job of narrating this series and his Bostonian Christian is adorable. He did okay with the Canadian as well. I enjoyed this and can’t wait for the next book.
