Snowbound with the Single Dad
Snowbound with the Single Dad - Cara Colter


I Picked Up This Book Because: I liked the cover.

The Characters:

Noelle “Ellie” McGregor:
Aiden Phillips:
Rufus McGregor, Bertanana “Nana” Sutton, Tess Phillips

The Story:


The concept of this story was great however the writing seemed immature. An I mean immature in the sense that it needed a good editing and revision. Like maybe it was the authors first book. (I’ve never seen so many exclamation points in a book.)

So with that out of the way I loved the characters. Grandpa Rufus was my favorite. How he managed to put all this together was beautiful and we never find out if he knew Noelle and Aiden would get on or not but I’m glad it unraveled the way it did. There was a ton of delicious sexual tension between Aiden and Ellie. There was also a substantial amount of overthinking which doesn’t thrill me but I see why it was included. Tess was a little ray of light throughout the book and it’s so good to see adults set aside their differences and put the child first. I hope this family has many more lovely Christmas celebrations together.


The Random Thoughts:

Favorite Quote: ”’Well,’ Grandpa said, too loudly. ‘There’s a face that would make a train take a dirt road.’”

The Score Card:

3 Stars

Review! Snowbound (Secret Heart Ink #1) Deborah Cooke!
Snowbound - Deborah Cooke

 

 

Flatiron Five has a new tattoo shop—run by the enigmatic and legendary tattoo artist Chynna. When the moon is full, Chynna creates one tattoo to set two hearts afire and gives it away, with the goal of making romantic dreams come true. Who will be next?

 

Olivia trusts in here-and-now...
Olivia doesn’t believe in magic or everlasting love—she’s a scientist, after all—but winning a tattoo from Chynna convinces her to take a chance. She’s always admired her best friend Lexi’s big brother Spencer, maybe because opposites attract. What would it be like to seduce him? Would it end her fascination with him? With a little help from her friends and a blindfold, Liv decides to find out. The bonus is that Spencer will never know his secret lover was her…

 

Spencer believes in forever.
But Spencer guesses the truth almost right away. He’s good with having Olivia want him—having her alone in his cabin is the perfect chance to teach her to trust sensation and him. A blizzard interferes with Olivia’s plan, giving Spencer more time to work his own persuasive magic. He knows a night or two will only be the beginning of what he wants to last forever. Can he convince Olivia to give love a try, or will she leave him forever as soon as the snow melts?

 

 

The first book in the “Flatiron Five” spin off is a delightful contemporary romance full of passion and magical charm.

 

The characters are strong and easily connected to, drawing readers in and holding them hostage with their story. The romance is sweet but has a major obstacle, Olivia doesn’t believe in love but she does believe in passion and she’s wanted Spencer forever so with a little help she decides to engage in a one night stand which is one hot night with lots of sizzling chemistry and heated passion. Spencer want more than one night and the readers are held captivated by the suspense and the hope that Olivia will reach for that happily ever after that readers long for. The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly from start to finish with beginning adding a magical element to the story that adds a little something extra to this enchanting romance.

 

This is the first contemporary romance that I have read by Deborah Cooke and I have to wonder –what was I thinking! I am certainly intrigued with the “Flatiron Five” series and the “Secret Heart Ink” series so I have added them all to my TBR pile.

A Snowbound Scandal (Dallas Billionaires Club #2) by Jessica Lemmon
A Snowbound Scandal - Jessica Lemmon

 

You can't go back, you can only move forward. That's a mantra we all live by, in life and in love. Regrets. We all have them. A constant reminder of where we've been and where we're going. They help us become who we are. However, there are moments that become exceptions. What happens when your greatest regret becomes the link to your present happiness?


Jessica Lemmon takes a walk down memory lane with Chase and Miriam. They once had it all, until it all became too much. Can a chance encounter with the past guide them toward a future together? A Snowbound Scandal brings Christmas a few months early. The perfect gift all year round. A passionate tale of love lost and found.

Snowbound - Deborah Cooke

 First off, I didn’t want this to end.  I wanted more from Olivia and Spencer; I really wish this had been a full novel.  They were such strong characters together and the plot was entertaining and wonderful.  Loved every second and wanted more. Second, I didn’t even mind that this was pretty close to being a novella; the plot was strong enough, the characters were great, and the chemistry just made for an awesome story. This does not fall to the novella curse! Loved. Every. Second. Deborah, why did this one have to end so soon??

A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
