About the book:

Adrian Blackstone built a million-dollar business with hard work and determination—and by remaining professional at all times. Denying his longtime attraction to his beautiful executive assistant hasn’t been easy but it’s necessary. She’s indispensable, and he can’t stand the thought of losing her if things didn’t work out.

For more than a year, Rachel Carter has been quietly dreaming of all the ways she’ll never seduce her sexy, buttoned-up boss. She’s worked too hard to get where she is to cross that line, no matter how badly she’d like to act on her fantasies. But then a wicked snowstorm leaves them stranded in a romantic winter wonderland…

What begins as a single kiss and a few bad Santa jokes turns into a weekend full of breathless passion and hopes for something more. But with Monday comes a return to their complicated reality—and Adrian must prove that promises made are promises kept, especially at Christmastime.

I adored this book. The story jumps right in and never slows down. Even though the story is short, it doesn’t feel incomplete or like it is missing anything. (When I saw the word count I was surprised it was that short!) The chemistry between Adrian and Rachel is evident from the very beginning of the story. I really enjoyed how they both worried about what their relationship would be like when they got back to the real world and had let that fear keep them from acting on that attraction for so long. It made their weekend fling seem like so much more than a three night stand. Their problems with reconciling their romantic relationship and their work relationship take a little time, but work themselves out quickly. The writing is excellent. SNOWBOUND WITH THE CEO is the perfect book for a cold winter night.
