Pure sweet fun, and filthy perfection!!
Sawyer and Chase meet during a snowstorm and get snowed in together, but it’s pure chance that Chase sees Sawyer stranded along a snowy highway and stops to help her.
He was on his way to visit a new school for a potential hockey transfer, but the snow was so thick after he picked up Sawyer they barely made it to the nearest motel and had to stop or chance getting stranded together out in the cold. At least in the motel they have shelter and food and together they spend several days snowed in along with several other guests, but it isn’t spent in boredom. The adventures during their snowy time spent together are sweet and fun and down right steamy. I couldn’t put this book down for even one moment.
There is an instant connection between Sawyer and Chase, even as they ride in the car up to the motel. That connection doesn’t stop even once. While they both don’t give each other their last names, for their own reasons, they enjoyed each other’s company more than they ever have with anyone else’s. Having nothing to do, no pressure, no complications, basically nothing but time really opened up the opportunity for them to get to know one another and truly have some fun. It was dating at the most basic level without all the pressure or pomp and circumstance.
Then when you get them between the sheets….fanning myself….wowza!! They had a sensual banter between them on top of just being sizzling hot, it truly made for delightful reading and the need for fresh panties after every smexy moment.
I was never a girl to drool over the hockey players at our academy—they’re all egotistical jerks. But since my father is the coach of Scotia Storms, everywhere I turn, there’s a player—in more ways than one.
I’m smart enough to know they don’t just avoid me because I’m the coach’s daughter. They avoid me because I’m a nerdy drama student with no game.
With winter break upon us, I plan to escape to Florida, to where no one knows my past. Or that I’m the butt of every hockey player’s joke. It’s true, I overheard the hurtful bet no player had the balls to take.
Not that I’d hand over my pesky V-card to any of them. Nope, I plan to take care of that problem on a beach down south.
Until the storm of the century throws a monkey wrench into my plans, and I find myself snowed-in with a smoking hot Southie. I figured he was the perfect guy to help me with my pesky problem—until my stupid heart got involved.
How could I avoid it when he was sweet and kind, and so different from the guys at the academy?
I begin to dream about our future, until the storm breaks and I realize he’s everything I never wanted and I’m everything that can destroy his future.
