Publisher's Summary

It’s every girl’s dream, getting rescued by a handsome stranger. When I woke up and saw Kit Green standing over me, I thought he was an angel. I didn’t see the dark wings. 

What is he doing out here all alone? I don’t question it at first. I’m too busy being blinded by intrigue and desire. If it weren’t for him, I’d be dead. I want to repay him with my body. 

But things quickly begin to not add up. This cabin is full of secrets. It’s cold outside, but I’m starting to think he came out here to burn for his sins. 

Disclaimer: The Cabin is a stand-alone dark romance. This story deals with the struggles of post-traumatic stress disorder and finding a reason to live when everything around you seems bleak. Heat Level: Smokin’ Hot.

The Cabin

Kit could not get his life back on track when he returned from his tour. His conscience would not let him sleep and PTSD kept him in the worst moments of his life. Ivy finds herself literally in the company of wolves when Kit finds her by his cabin. His tortured soul finds the soothing balm in Ivy that he needs to start his life over. But will this chance meeting be enough to build on? I love Kit. His frame of mind is so well portrayed by Sky Corgan, giving him desperation so strong that it's palpable, but the heart of a truly beautiful soul. He has deep emotions and his journey of healing is worth the trip. Ivy is a fun adventurer, and her wolf scene was reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast, my favorite fairy tale. It captured my complete attention and kept me til the end. The story is steamy, heartbreaking at times and let's us experience their love as they get to know each other.

Sophie James narrates this dark story with her wonderful voices. I love her and her ability to singly narrate with make and female voices so well it's hard to know it's only one person. She brings these two together with all the feels and makes the listen well worth it.

Short but steamy

Feedback
So romance is not my usual genre. I, however, really enjoyed this story. It was a very strong and powerful one about discovering love when you feel like you've lost everything. There was the immediate connection between Ivy and Kit after he rescued her from the wolves. Their attraction was undeniable from the beginning and they found in each other something that they were both missing. I usually don't enjoy the "insta-love" trope but for this book it was kind of necessary since it was so short. That being said, I think I would have enjoyed this more if it was longer. There was so much room for growth. More time at the cabin, more of a beginning, even more of an ending. I really wish this story would have been expanded upon and we were given more.

I really enjoyed Ivy and Kit's character. They really did seem to be perfect for each other. The sultry scenes were definitely intense between them but they blended very well together, always showing they deeply cared. I like how it was more than just the physical attraction between them. There was something about each other that just wanted more. Again, I wish there was a little more development between them. With the novel being so short, we were only given a little bit of the building romance. I would have loved to read about them truly getting to know each other more and seeing their feelings truly blossom.

Final Thoughts
Overall, The Cabin by Sky Corgan was a fantastic short read. The story blended really well with the environment giving the readers a satisfying read. I really wish this was longer and we were given more. This could have easily been expanded upon which would have resulted in a fantastic novel. Ivy and Kit were perfect together and I enjoyed their relationship. The end was perfect as it showed them truly caring for each other more than the actual physical attraction. I recommend this book for those who enjoy romance novels and is looking for a quick, steamy read.

Audio Review
Wow. Sophie James did such a phenomenal job. I really give narrators so much credit when they do multiple POVs. Even in this case when she was reading from Kit's perspective she changed her voice. This truly made it so much better as it really felt we were listening from his point of view. I was thoroughly impressed with all of the scenes as she really made the right inflections at the most appropriate moments. I would highly recommend this audio as Sophie does an amazing job with it.

Moving portrayal of the effects of ptsd

Kit is suffering from ptsd due to him being a medic and not being able to save his brother and fellow soldiers. Death seems to be the only way out of his suffering. While at his family cabin he saves Ivy from attacking wolves. She comes to care and love Kit and may become his salvation. This story is so relevant since in reality 2 veterans a day commit suicide. Sky has created characters that the reader can instantly come to love.

The narrator did a very good job of bringing the characters to life. I received this Audible book in exchange for a review. I highly recommend this book.

Believable storyline with less believable scenes

Entertaining steamy short about a disillusioned veteran suffering from PTSD who saves a lost hiker just as wolves find her. Kit was a medic in the service so he immediately sets to caring for Ivy, a tourist who’s temper lead her too deep into the woods right before a storm. Stranded, they turn up the heat 🔥and together they discover that things may not be as desolate as they’d believed.
Sky is a master of the sexy, down and dirty, turn-down-the-volume-in-your-car-and-look-around, short story! They’re always fun and make for good weekend mindless chore listens.
Sophie James has a great voice for adult female romance narratives. She acts the parts well.

Bravo! 👍🏻 With One Big Thumbs Up!

Lots of Coincidents But Great Message.

I take my hat off to authors who write stories with real life issues built into them. I imagine it cannot be easy to write a story that contains sensitive topics like suicide. This was a pretty well written shorter story, but there were a few scenes that were almost too coincidental. The characters are likeable and I found myself cheering for their happily ever after. This is a story of finding one's purpose in life and persevering even when you think there is no reason to keep going in life.

The narrator did a pretty good job in this performance. Her male voice was ok but could have been better, in general. Overall, she was able to express the emotions the characters were experiencing fairly well.

A quick and enjoyable listen.

This was a quick and enjoyable listen.

Kit is a warm and caring person with a damaged soul. Lily has an eager and optimistic personality that begins to heal Kit’s damaged soul. The interactions between Kit and Lily becomes heated, but there is lead-in time between them---not just instant sex!

The narration was well done.

The Cabin

The meaning behind the story was so touching and sad. Everyone needs that one thing or one person to live for. I just feel it was a little rushed. worth a read.

I so love the way this is written!

I am a Sky Corgan fan and have been since I read her books for the first time. She is a go to author for me. This one is no different. I loved these characters, and how he saved her when he had no hope left, and in turn, she gives him something in return. I hate spoilers, so I’m trying to keep from giving anything up here. I will just say, if you haven’t read or listened to this, you need to!

Emotional rollercoaster

Such a great emotional read/listen. I really enjoyed the storyline of this book. I do love a tortured hero. This was the first book from this author but definitely not my last.

A delicate balence

Sky Corgan was brave to take on the subject of PTSD in this novel. It's not something most people understand nor have the patience to want to understand.

In this novel Kit struggles with demons and Sky writes on the subject of PTSD with respect and a glossary understanding of two people saving each other. While PTSD for each individual is as different as each snowflake, she does a great job at not minimizing anyone's feelings.

While this novel moves fast in a relationship between Kit and Ivy, it's the sensitivity and emotion that draw you in.
Sophie James does a terrific job at switching between Kit and Ivy so you capture the thoughts and ride along with each character.
