The time has come for Angel Smith to leave Antarctica and return to the US after spending months as head chef for Burke-Ruhe Research Station at the South Pole. Angel doesn't know where she will go or what she will do since coming to Antarctica was a means to get away from a difficult situation in Pennsylvania which had been her home. It doesn't help that her attraction to glaciologist Dr. Ford Cooper has gone unrequited. Ford has purposefully isolated himself from anyone and anything other than his work ever since his arrival at the station. When Angel's departure is interrupted and she is left behind, she discovers that there is more going on at the station than research.

Whiteout is an enjoyable, if unrealistic, romantic adventure/survival novel with underdeveloped but likable characters. The beginning of the book is exciting and draws the reader into multiple possible scenarios surrounding the mysteries of the research station, but when the story moves out into the wilderness and becomes all about survival, the pace slows considerably causing interest to wane. Excitement picks up again in the last third of the story, salvaging the book and making it an enjoyable novel. Overall, Whiteout has enough action, suspense, and romance to make it worth the read. 3 1/2 stars. ( )

I read the prequel to this story in an anthology. It focused on Ford's brother but was nice to have that sort of preview when reading this story. Ford and Angel work at a research station in Antarctica. Ford isn't very friendly but then the two are forced together to fight against the bad guys. I liked the book but wasn't as enthralled with it as other people. I found it to be a little too long and I was bored with the descriptions of the weather. I get why there were included, I just wanted more smexy times and less weather reports I think. Overall it was a fun story and I would read more from this author but it just solidifies that romantic suspense is not my jam as much as contemporary is.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy. ( )

As a summer worker, Angel is about to leave Antarctica and return to the mainland. However, when she misses her plane, she is left behind with murderer's, intent on stealing ice core samples from the station. Ford Cooper, a scientist, is also left behind. Coop finds Angel, and together they piece together what is happening, and make the decision to trek across the ice over 200 miles to the nearest station.

This book was a complete bust. Although it was set in one of the most interesting places on earth, and had a fairly decent conspiracy theory plot, I quickly grew tired of the relationship between Angel and Coop. The two were attracted to one another yet determined not to like one another. Most of their scenes were spent describing each other in their heads. They acted like pre-teens who couldn't think of anything else but sex. Seriously, you are fleeing for your life across the Antarctic, and can't focus on anything but the other persons hair, sounds, looks, movement, etc. This completely killed the book for me. ( )

In short, meh. The cold is brutal. I know what 60 below is and I'd have little will to survive let alone romance. Well written in a pace sense, but couldn't care less about the characters, romance, etc. Too long, hate a switch of POV in final chapters--and was that a cliffhanger end? Nope. ( )

Get a blanket, warm slippers and something hot to drink before snowshoeing into this read. Baby it’s cold inside this book and then it HOT but that has nothing to do with the weather. It’s about two people who are running away from their lives and a horrendous plot to kill millions.
Favorite line “The Iceman Cometh” . So the story is set in a remote scientific station near the pole, frozen beyond cold. Angel is the new hire, the cook for the station. Coop, one of the scientist, is the stick in her side, Mr Grumpy. He is colder than the ice surrounding the place. He spends most of his time out on the ice so when something goes wrong and he comes back to a nearly empty station he has no idea what happened, till he finds a certain cook. The cook, Angel is traumatized, horrified and broken. It doesn’t last long she’s not there to die. She’s a hero here, and Mr Grumpy knows it. Together they take steps to survive with little to no chance of making it. Remember it’s cold, and they have to stay warm somehow when it gets dark and there is no generator. :P Here come the toe tingling bits, it’s slow and delicious. It’s not all warm generating going on the guys who destroyed the station are now looking for them.
What an intense read. It has it all, intense action, uncertain future, difficult hard won relationship, snark, and so much more. I loved and hated the characters as they ere writer. The good was so awwwww, the bad, ugg they were nasty bits of evil ! Fun read !
I received a copy of this from the publisher for a honest review ( )
