***This is a trilogy, with each book about one of the triplets. Each triplet's book is written by a different author, which give each of the girls their own distinct voice and personality, but the authors have meshed data and information really well, that it never feels disconnected.***
Marisa is the oldest triplet, and afraid of people expecting her to replace her mother's place, she decides to move as far away as she can. After a troubling relationship, her self-esteem is not at it's best, and finding the right man, may be the perfect solution, or her worst mistake yet.
Love Grows in Alaska has a very good plot. The story is cohesive, the book keeps you guessing, and you end it wanting more. I have missed a bigger conflict, a moment of desperation for the readers.
Zach is a very alpha hero, hot and lovable. Marisa is a good heroine, but it is harder for me to connect with her, than with Zach. I know her insecurities are very well explained by the author, but it still annoys me at some points.
The couple's chemistry is very well described by the author, and Zach is the perfect balance of soft and hard that Marisa needs in her life. He is a true alpha that knows when to let his woman shine.
This book is a very good addition to the triplets trilogy and is has spiced it up my need to meet the third and last sister.
"Be who you want, Marisa, not who people expect you to be. Show me the woman you are... bare your soul to me."
