Review: SNOWBOUND WITH A STRANGER by Rebecca Rogers Maher

About the book:

Dannie Marino is hiking with colleagues when a sudden blizzard separates her from her group. She’s rescued by Lee, a dangerously sexy stranger who leads her to a remote cabin to weather the storm.

When the night inevitably ends in an intense erotic encounter, Dannie is both shocked and liberated by her response. But being intimate means letting herself be vulnerable, which isn’t her style. Lee tries to reach out to her, but she avoids any emotional entanglement by pushing him away.

Snowed in and unable to hide from each other, Dannie and Lee must both face up to their most closely guarded emotions. When the storm abates, will they be able to stop running from the past and live fully in the future?

I really enjoyed this book till the end. Both Dannie and Lee are fully realized characters with deep issues in their past that has kept them from being in a serious romantic relationship. When they are stranded in the cabin it enables them to take a step back from their reality and work toward a happy ever after. The relationship moves very quickly, but this is also due to their isolation. The ending isn’t a bad one, but I wanted to know that their happily ever after was going to stick. Their future is hinted at but not a fact. I would have loved to read what happened to the characters when they returned to reality and how their relationship played out in the real world.

Whatcha Reading Wednesday

I’m having a crazy week. Monday I got a call from my kid’s school that the kindergartener needed to be taken to the emergency room because a puppet show theater fell on his head. 4 hours and 3 x-rays later he ended up with three stitches right across the bridge of his nose. Then we found out that my MIL’s surgery to remove a pancreatic tumor is Thursday. This is a major surgery with lots of possibility for complications, so the whole family is a bit freaked out. So, all of that is to say that I haven’t been reading much. What I am reading though is fantastic. I started CAPTIVATED by Lauren Dane on Monday and I’m 68% finished. I am loving this book – it is definitely my favorite in the series. The sex is hot, the action is heightened from the previous book, and I love the romance between Julian, Vincenz, and Hannah. I’m usually not a fan of futuristic romances, but this series has been great.
