Snowed In begins with Maureen getting broken up with by her boyfriend – while she is naked! She ends up at the supermarket looking at the ice cream and breaks down crying. It is then when she meets Gavin – who flirts and tries to cheer her up a bit because she is too beautiful to be crying. They share a kiss and Maureen ends up avoiding the grocery store for two weeks.
When she returns to the grocery store she is crying once again – only this time she bumps into Pippa, who happens to be neighbors with Gavin and who has gotten a ride there with him. Maureen and Gavin reconnect and despite a storm coming, they make plans to go on a date that night.
They end up snowed in at Gavin’s place – and everything is going great – until… there’s a twist that I’m not telling you about!
This book restored my faith in romance novels. I had decided I was going to not read anymore after I had caught up on what needed to be read in my queue after reading a few that were really, really bad. However, Snowed In made me reconsider this. It was short, which I always love, and it was to the point (probably since it was so short) and I enjoyed the characters and the storyline. It was realistic and enjoyable.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
There’s nothing like a hot kiss on a cold day
Librarian Maureen O’ Connell might have predicated she’d find herself crying into the ice cream cast at the supermarket after a bad breakup, but she definitely never imagined that a guy hot enough to melt the Rocky Road would flirt with her right there in the freezer aisle. Only Gavin Fraser isn’t a fantasy, he’s a mouth-watering new flavor.
When a freak snowstorm strands Maureen at Gavin’s after just one date, it’s a perfect excuse for something a lot steamier than hot chocolate in front of the fire. It’s definitely lust. Can it also be love?
