3.5-4 stars. The story concept is pretty simple (stuck in a cabin, like "The Sweetest Tattoo"), but the characters are complex. To me, the sex is rather intense and graphic, especially for a newbie to m/m. I'd classify it as erotic, and it's well done. It may be physically intense, but those scenes are also emotional, too. Some of the dialogue was clunky and felt unnatural, which broke me away from the story, but overall a very good, intense novella-length read. It seems like there may be a series in the works what with the introduction of Noah, one of the fellow townsfolk.
