Synopsis (Goodreads):
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?
Thoughts on Snowcroft Safehouse: Kill me slowly, why don't you? *gives everyone sad, angsty eyes at everything Dex/Finn and Jack have to go through to get their HEA* And Law. LAWWWW! Oh, gawd. I want him to have some happy. POOR MAN.

But this is Finn and Jack's story (Don't be confused, Dex is Finn. And Finn/Dex is fantastically awesome.), so I'm going to quietly put Law on the backburner and tell him it'll be all right. Just wait, you hunky, brute of a damaged man. Just wait.

Right. Finn has some issues he's working out. They're pretty brutal as issues seeing as how he's the lone survivor of a horrific incident. He's recovering both physically and emotionally from what happened, but he's nowhere near 100%. (And I wouldn't expect him to be. Poor man. Huh. I get the feeling I'm going to be saying that a lot this review.) The chemistry he has with Jack is a breath of fresh air after everything he's gone though.

And then there's Jack. He knows he's attracted to men, but he's unwilling to publicly admit it because he doesn't want to hurt his daughter in any way. I totally get where he was coming from and I LOVE Kelsey's response when she (eventually) finds out. It was incredibly sweet and I JUST LOVED IT. OKAY?!?!

Twists and turns, danger and the potential for heartache on all fronts and OMG! LAW! FINN! EVERYTHING! You're killing me, Snow. Killing me with the beautiful, damaged men.

Thank you for that!
