I honestly think this is one of the more difficult books I’ve tried to review.  I’m just all over the place with this story.  There were things I loved and things I liked and things I didn’t like so much.  Good news, there were no things I hated.  But this wasn’t a smooth read for me.

Chase and Mimi are fantastic characters and actually have great chemistry.  The concept of them being snowed in together, and the way in which it happened, is great.  Since we get both of their viewpoints, from the beginning I didn’t blame either character for what happened between them in the past.  The sexual tension they have when first trapped together is riveting and I couldn’t wait to read what would happen next.

Then what happened next happened and the story started to drag for me.  I guess when there wasn’t really any conflict and seemingly no end to their curtain situation the story just stalled out.  Once the snow stopped and the plows got out to start doing their thing, the story picked back up again.

I absolutely flew through the last 20% or so of this story.  It was engaging and wonderfully written.  It also gave me all the feels.  Just goosebump inducing, heart-swelling greatness. So you see, really hard for me to decide on a rating for this one.

I also want to mention that I love Chase’s little sister and his bodyguard/best friend and would love to read that story.  I kept hoping to see more of them throughout this book.  I also wonder what already happened in their pasts since (once again) I ended up reading a book that is not book 1 in its series.  Although I don’t believe that hurt any in this story, I could tell the sister/best friend thing also ran through the first book.

3 stars
