A year ago Declan Jasper was entertaining sold-out arena crowds as the lead singer of Black Rainbows. But that came to an explosive end when the band got caught up in a criminal cover-up, one that ended with the entire band dead. At least that’s what everyone is supposed to think.
Now, Dex is hiding in plain sight, working as the school band director in a sleepy little mountain resort town while under the protection of a hard-nosed FBI agent. Instead of eyeliner and black leather, he now wears glasses and corduroy. Instead of having sexy coeds—both male and female—throw themselves into his bed, he’s dealing with teenage angst and grumpy parents.
At the top of his troubles list is Kelsey Walker, a junior high bundle of rare musical talent in the form of one confused, messed-up adolescent. Dex figures the problem comes from her broken home and wants to help. But when he meets her father, sexy bar-owner, Jack Walker, he realizes that instead of helping he’s probably just bringing more trouble and danger to their door.
Dex has to stay alive until the trial to bring his bandmates’ murderers to justice, but can he do that if it means sacrificing his own happily ever after?
I’m happy to say that the Snowcroft series is turning into everything I thought it would be…and more. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. I’ve been a fan of Christi Snow and her characters for quite some time. This series has just given me a whole new cast of characters to fall in love with. ❤
Finn (aka Dex) was a broken mess. His world ended when the explosion took his best friends along with his identity. Instead of being the center of attention, he now has to blend in and some of the people sworn to protect him are less than friendly. By the time he reaches Snowcroft and ends up in the hands of a grumpy Law, he’s pretty much had it. Then he meets Jack.
Jack was introduced in Snowcroft Lost and it was obvious then that there was a lot more to his story. He was deep in the closet because of his fear of typical small town mentality and hurting his family, especially his daughter. Starting a relationship was totally out of the question. Sometimes fate has different plans. This turned out to be a story about hiding. Finn was hiding from the obvious danger of the mob. Jack was hiding his true self from everyone who loved and cared about him. Those kinds of situations never end well and this story was no exception.
Even though I loved the relationship between Jack and Finn, there was another character that pulled me into Snowcroft Safehouse even more. That character was Law… I love that guy and in my opinion he can’t get his HEA soon enough. In my mind I know that he has some serious healing to do before that can happen, but he’s really breaking my heart. The big tough ones usually do. *sigh*
