Snow on the Mountain
”We first met Jake and Kurt in the fantastic 5 star Fire on the Mountain where they worked as fire rangers for the summer season. Two men alone in the mountains cut off from civilization, completely reliant on each other and well, you can guess the rest. Of course both assume the other is straight at first and dance around the obvious signs they're each putting out until a life or death situation forces the truth to the surface. They ...more
The book begins a few months after the end of the previous book. Jake and Kurt have finished their summer job as forest rangers and are now working at an exclusive ski resort for the rich and famous ...more

(view spoiler)[The whole idea that Kurt would unknowingly be taking a job as a prostitute was so unlikely. A ...more
Throughout their misadventures, you can't help standing on the sidelines, cheering these two on. P.D. Singer has given us another thoroughly entertaining read!!!
There is a lot of action in this book and a lot less of the minute descriptions of the life of a ski instructor than we got of the life of a fire ranger. The balance seemed much more even in this effort.
Jake starts off with a daring rescue ...more
I liked this book a lot. It's almost a bit better than the first because the t ...more

Savoring this series :-) ... will start this one after I finish a few other books on my immediate queue. While I am in a rush to read this series, I am NOT in a rush to finish it, so I'm going to take more time before tackling book #2 :-)!! Really enjoyed the first book, so it's definitely REALLY recommended!!
Oh man, this book did NOT live up to the decently good one that preceded it. The plot was just too OTT and unbelievable (not the Whore-aspect, that I believe)...just that nothing ever came of the whole mess. There are legal liabilities involved here with the wife of a controlling interest owner knowing what the "ski school" was up to if it ever came out as prostitution is illegal in Colorado; the resort could be held accountable, charged, fined - the scandal would be endless and likely ...more
This is the second book in Mountain series. I really liked the first one, and was looking forward reading the sequel. Unfortunately, IMO, this one is not as appealing as the first one. My like/dislike of this book is not steady. At first, I really enjoyed it and was ready to give it a 5-star rating. In the middle, however, it faltered. It's still a nice book, though.
Kurt and Jake are now in skiing village where Kurt works as skiing instructor and Jake as lift operator. Ev ...more
I enjoyed that. But what I didn't know was that book 2, was not a new couple, but Jake and Kurt further down the road. Oh my excitement was great after that, since it meant the slow romance build up that started in book 1, was done and we got to enjoy the romance/smexy fun times of the two boys.
Kurt seemed far less self assured than he did in the first book, which s ...more
In book one we meet Jake and Kurt and this is their continued story. They’ve been living together and working for the past 5 months and though they are pretty secure in their love for each other, they haven’t said the “L” word out loud. Jake is still a bit in the closet and this can be frustrating for Kurt, especially when Jake inadvertently leads on one of his co-workers!
PD Singer does another fantastic job describing the life and times a ...more
More of Kurt's past is revealed in this book and Jake continues to act with mature competence softened by moments of vulnerability and self-doubt that balance perfectly. Their relationship grows against a background of the 'everyday' goings on at the ski resort that give the book a good dose of action and adventure. As a non-skier I ...more
Writing wise, it was weird b/c Jake's POV was first person and Kurt's was not... I can see why both POVs were necessary but it really struck me as odd.
I totally loved Mark. My fav. part was Jake drunk and he watching Mark and Kurt's interaction drunk. It was best.
I think the relationship was explored we ...more
Key Themes: Established Couple, Coming Out, Jealousy
Location: Wapiti Creek Ski Resort
Book 2 of the Mountain series.
Jake and Kurt are now living together and working at a ski resort. Jake operates the ski lifts and Kurt is an “instructor” at the top ski school in the area. At the start of the story, both MCs are in the closet.
Sadly, the main storyline was really disappointing - (view spoiler)[Kurt signs up with a ski school that is widely known fo ...more
The story is set in the expensive Wapiti Creek Ski Resort. Jake Landon has never skiied before while Kurt Carlson is a top world class skiier who can get the big money teaching skiing, but there is a shady side business that makes of a mystery, then there is no mystery and then ...more
This was another great story with Jake and Kurt. I was afraid things would slow down between them after the way the first book ended, but boy was I wrong. This one was even better than the first story! It was so intense with a lot of unexpected twists, plus a few super hot scenes to wrap it all up. Along with a little extra story at the end to make me really hope that these two can keep advancing as a couple as time goes on.
There is a lot of mystery and suspense to this one. ...more
The setting and characters in this book were just as enjoyable and interesting. My main gripe was that the overall plot arc was a little too unbelievable, as was the naiveness of one of the characters in the situation he found himself.
However, it's an enjoyable romp, and I still recommend ...more
Finn Sterling narrated this first person title, and he did a fabulous job. He was easy to listen to and just sucked me right into the story. I can safely say that his narration helped the story come alive for me. I read Snow back in October when I first listened to Fire on the Mountain and did not enjoy it nearly as much as I did this time around.
