Publication Date: October 25, 2022
Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports/Holiday Romance
Author: Rebecca Jenshak
Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars
A sweetly adorable holiday novella. Jenshak brought all the nostalgia of a family Christmas and mixed it up with college students escaping for a few days during their winter break. This is perfect to pick up and read during an afternoon sitting by the fire with a hot cup of cocoa.
For Holly the holidays mean tradition; baking cookies, singing carols, putting up a tree, spending time with family, etc…However, this year her parents are on vacation right up until the actual holiday so it’s just her and her siblings and they’ve decided to spend time at the family cabin until it’s time to head home. While Holly still wants to do all of the same traditions at the cabin, when she arrives with her twin sister, Stella, she did not expect her brother to be there with most of the football team, especially with Teddy her crush. This changes things, just a bit…but some changes make the magical holiday just a bit sweeter, especially when they get snowed in.
Teddy and Holly are super sweet together. Snowed in with the Player is loving and full of holiday cheer, it’s like reading a Hallmark movie. The story is told completely from Holly’s POV and it’s a quick read that is filled with all the sugar cookie warmth and hot cocoa deliciousness. There’s also a bit of a sneaky peek into Stella’s love story and I can’t wait to see how that is going to play out in the next novella.
It was supposed to be a weekend of holiday cheer.
Just me and my twin sister, watching Christmas movies and baking cookies.
My brother was absolutely not supposed to show up with half the football team.
Including Teddy. My brother’s best friend and my secret crush.
I’m the shy sister. The one with her nose stuck in a book and quoting every word of Elf, not the one getting attention from guys like Teddy.
He’s cool and smart and so handsome I could die.
The only thing that could make things worse is if I got snowed in with him.
