Blurb: There are worse things than being stranded in a blizzard.
Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason: he’s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won’t be unrealistic, either—which means romantic commitments are off the table.
Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He’s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he’s facing yet another holiday season alone.
When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion leads to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever.

Review: What if one night, one chance meeting could change your life? Would you take that leap of faith if you have already convinced yourself that none of it matters? That is exactly the choice Trevor Morrison has to make. Trapped at a local hotel during one of the worst Blizzards on record, Trevor meets Marc, an enigmatic Lawyer with mesmerizing green eyes. The attraction is mutual and immediate so they decide to enjoy each other for the night.
But when the sun comes up, Marc finds himself wanting more than just the one night stand that was agreed upon. Trevor is adamant that it’s not possible, but when he can’t find a flight out and faces the possibility of spending Christmas alone, Marc jumps at the chance to take Trevor to his home and show him what it could be like if he would only say yes.
I really enjoyed the strangers in the night aspect of the story and the chemistry between the characters. While there is a heaviness on Trevor’s shoulders because he is facing the very real possibility that he won’t find a donor in time and finally succumb to kidney failure, Chase balanced that level of sadness with love and passion. Marc wants Trevor in his life, but more than that, he wants Trevor to live and he will stop at nothing to ensure that, even if he doesn’t remain a part of Marc’s life.
A variety of emotions played out in the pages of this story. Angst, passion, sadness, determination and love. It was well written, well-rounded and wonderfully conveyed. Definitely a must read, I devoured it in one setting, just could not put it down.
