The Life of a Loner

★★★✩✩

Malcolm was a famous actor who ran away from the life. His life was taken over by his entourage, everyone out to get something from him, and he was betrayed by the people he was supposed to able to trust the most. So there he was, in a remote cabin, with only himself and his dog for company, and his walls so high that no one could hurt him again. After being stabbed and left for dead by her boyfriend in the middle of nowhere, Kate was rescued by the former-star-turned-recluse. She recognized him but didn't remember from where. All Malcolm could do was keep his distance and hope she never figured out who he was. But a terrible storm, close quarters, and their chemistry make his plan pretty impossible to adhere to.

Although I really enjoyed this author's writing, I felt that there wasn't enough of a story for me to really connect with. The characters ended up being one-dimensional, with only a few hints as to what made them who they were. I wanted more of their backgrounds, especially Malcolm, who this story centered around. I also think more could be done with Kate. She was almost killed, lived through an abusive relationship, and it wasn't really resolved. While convenient, this situation warranted more air time to convince me of her closure. I can say the author made her hero super sweet and a bit broken, which is sure to touch the hearts of readers everywhere.

Synopsis
Malcolm
Stumbling across a girl bleeding to death in the snow isn’t my idea of a good time. Neither is risking this life I’ve so carefully built that’s based on never being found.

If I leave her, she dies.

If I help her, my whole life goes to hell.

Well, f*ck.

Kate
After my ex did me dirty and left me to bleed to death in the show, I should have died.

But I didn’t.

The guy who saved me? He’s got a secret as vast as the white wilderness around us.

If I leave, I die.

If I help him, my whole life changes.

What now?

Each book in the Labeled series can be read without having ready any other and in any order. This book is a standalone with dirty language, steamy scenes, and a happily ever after. Enjoy!
