Snowed In: Hunter’s Story by Adira August

Rating: 5.0 stars

BLURB

Trapped by the blizzard outside…

Hunter Dane & Camden Snow contend with the storm raging inside.

In the pre-dawn darkness, Hunt moaned and thrashed under the comforter. Finally, the nightmare receded. He settled, breathed deeply several times, and opened his eyes.

“You okay?” Cam asked.

“Sure,” Hunter smiled, half-awake, not remembering. “I’m here with you. Safe inside the storm. Away from … all the crap of the last few weeks.”

Cam moved his hands over Hunt’s body, soothing and gentling. “Safe inside the storm.” Not safe from the storm, but safe inside of it. Isolated. Protected. Safe.

But Cam knew Hunter wasn’t safe; his demons came with him: a dark and twisted possession by blood and cruelty and murder. Being snowed-in for days would allow the darkness to eat away at Hunt until his very skin would seem too small. He’d beg Cam for the flogger. And hate Cam for denying him.

There was a solution, but the so-called “Full Metal Dom” was afraid. So very afraid the fragile bonds between them would not survive.

To help Hunter, he had to do the one thing he swore he would never do.

AUTHOR’S NOTE

I believe all my titles can be read stand-alone. Except for this one. If you like BDSM sex and that’s all you’re looking for, this book will be okay, I suppose.

But if you are looking for character and relationship and arc, you’ll want to read the first three Hunt and Cam books, starting with On His Knees.

For you who already know Hunt and Cam, this story begins about 18 hours after Dancing Men ended. It’s not a mystery. It’s the culmination of something that began, I think, the first time Hunter Dane and Camden Snow laid eyes on each other. This is the one we’ve all been waiting for.

THE CHARACTERS

Hunter Dane:

Hunter Dane was at least 6’2,” which she hadn’t seen in the diner where he’d always been sitting. He was lean and well-muscled, like an athlete, not a gym bunny. The head of a black panther covered most of his right pec. Golden eyes. A paw, claws digging into flesh, rounded his right biceps. On the left, the panther’s tail wrapped around his arm just below the shoulder.
From: Dancing Men, Hunt&Cam4Ever, Book 3, Adira August

Camden Caulfield Snow – ‘Cam’:

I was looking for Cam. Camden Caulfield Snow. Earner of five Gold and two Silver winter Olympic medals, his classic blond beauty graced a billion drink cups and a thousand Tumblr blogs – a Norse god in the guise of unpretentious youth… A gentle soul morphed with a supremely competitive, athletically gifted, Alpha male… Only his steel blue eyes gave evidence of the Dom who took whomever he wished, whatever way he wanted, with a look and a nod.
From: On His Knees, Hunt&Cam4ever, Book 1, Adira August

SNOWED IN: HUNTER’S STORY

Truly, this is the one we were waiting for.

We’ve been waiting to get to the bottom of Hunt’s psyche. What makes him tick, what makes him seek that release from his inner demons and anxieties, why does Hunt not love? Here in Book 4 we finally get at some of our answers, and releases there are aplenty, and yet I cannot but stop and think that there’s still more for us to know.

Come on in and see what Hunt’s been craving his whole life. Will it last? Will he still hurt Cam as he’s said many times he’d do? Hunt’s waters run deep.

And then there’s Cam. There’s still a spidey sense at the back of my mind that there are some things about Cam that haven’t come out and in Snowed In I get a small glimpse of this in the way he cares so deeply for his subs. A good man? Absolutely, and still… ?

The jury is still out, come and hear part of the case – join us.

THE STORY

I’ve said before, the amazing thing about Adira August is that she gives you a story, and with Snowed In: Hunter’s Story she delivers yet again.

In Snowed In we get the background and psyche we’ve been craving about Hunter and bonus! We get Hunt’s family history and some unknown aspects of his family and their ancestry and his mother’s affliction. I can’t help but feel that this is something that’s going to come to light in the future and figure prominently in their lives. We also get some feel and background to Cam’s family and his feisty grandmother, which I also hope we hear more from in the future.

We also get to enjoy some fun and whimsical moments with Hunt and Cam, the fun moments that make for the cementing of a long lasting relationship. Those silly, giddy, funny and fun moments that make life worth living which are brought to us in a most intimate manner, as if we were flies on the wall. That’s the joy of Ms. August’s writing – it all feels so darn genuine and honest that I couldn’t help but smile and laugh right along with Hunt and Cam.

And then there’s that Epilogue! Two very strong, willful men coming to grips with the realities of their relationship. This is the way to end it. No sugar coating, no mushy sentimentalities, just two powerful men coming to terms. Bravo!

The other story we get in Snowed In is the wonderful, phenomenal erotica. Man, oh man, is this good stuff, take it from a Dom of a certain age. Makes me wonder just how intense and kinky these two are going to get? Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of sexual exploits afoot in Snowed In, some of which left me going: ‘Hmmmm? How’d she know about that?’

THE WRITING

Ms. August’s writing is thoroughly enjoyable. Details are thought out through and through and it’s obvious she takes great attention to every detail and nuance. This is top shelf erotica, factual and down to earth.

The intensity and feel of the intimate scenes are honest and real-life for a BDSM relationship, so much so that some actually made me go: ‘Hmmmm… how’d she know about that?’

As in her other books the writing makes for effortless reading, a pleasant enjoyment that lets the reader sink into the story and become one with the characters, none of those WTF moments where one has to go back and re-read a passage.

THE AUTHOR

TYPOS ARE MY TRADEMEARK

I write mostly BDSM EROTICA because I love exploring the power dynamics in terms of the love relationships. The work is explicit. It’s always consensual. If you have triggers about certain kinds of practices, use discretion. I do not make kink lists for my titles.

I went to school interminably, it seemed like. I studied anthropology and paleontology and genetics and literature and theology and ancient Greek. I chased down bad guys, raised children, climbed mountains, played poker, searched for dinosaurs and have had a rather large number of lovers. (I’m not giving up any numbers because TMI) Through it all, I wrote.

No wonder I’m so tired.
