Review….Snowbound by Larissa Ione



Passion hot enough to melt the slopes and their hearts.

Thanks to a devastating medical diagnosis, ski patroller Sean Trenton has endured two years of celibacy. Two long years that have chipped away at his confidence. Now, with the career opportunity of a lifetime on the line, he’s ready to remedy the celibacy situation, and sexy snow bunny Robyn Montgomery is just what the doctor ordered.

Unfortunately, the last thing reliable, intense radio station manager Robyn Montgomery wants in her suddenly turbulent professional and personal life is a thrill-seeking former Olympic skier-even if he is a total hottie. She’s had it with guys who hog the spotlight and leave her in the shadows. So why is it that even an icy blizzard cant temper the combustible heat between them?


My review:

Being a huge Larissa Ione fan, I knew I had to read this book.  Well, I finally got the chance this past week and abso-freaking-loutely loved it!

Robyn Montgomery is chairing her high school reunion’s charity auction this year and is already dreading it when her jerk of an ex, and her current boss, backs out of emceeing the event at the very last minute. Of course.  It didn’t make any difference to him that she hated her high school years and that her way of getting back at all of the catty women she knew was to show off her success as a New York radio station manager.  Having the ex use his fame as a media prince was going to help her shut them, and all of their hurtful teasing, up for good.  Known for being the overweight, brace-face, glasses wearing nerd, this was supposed to be her chance to show off how she’d grown into a beautiful and successful woman.  Now she’s stuck heading to her hometown lacking an emcee and in jeopardy of losing her battle with the emotions she’s fought off since the day she graduated.

Sean Trenton has left the world of competitive skiing behind.  After a terrible medical issue two years before, he’s traded his Olympic gold medal hopes for a medical kit and a read ski patroller’s parka.  He loves what he does now but there’s just something missing.  He needs a woman.  Sean is ready to jump back in the saddle after swearing off sex since his diagnosis.  It should be easy for the self –assured, fun-spirited, sexy patroller….but what he wasn’t expecting was wanting more than a one night stand the minute he lays eyes on Robyn.

What a great story this was.  The build up and sexual tension between Robyn and Sean was absolutely delicious.  I do believe I groaned out loud on more than one occasion while reading this book.  Sometimes I get so frustrated when the back and forth between the two characters lasts and lasts, but in Snowbound it was the perfect amount.  Sean is what every hero should be…compassionate, cheeky, gorgeous, sexy, funny, kind, and a guy you want to root for.  He’s not perfect, and makes his share of mistakes, but that made me love him even more.  He’s believable and real in a way some characters never get to be.  Robyn is no less believable than Sean.  She has been put through the “mean girls” wringer, something I’m sure a lot of us can relate to.  She’s not one to just jump in with both feet and tends to take things more cautiously.  I really felt for her.  I so wanted her to succeed and really stick it to all the morons that still act like they are in high school.  The ending to this book was just *dreamy sigh* freaking perfect.  I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun, sexy, heart-felt read!  Thank you, Larissa, for yet another incredible story!
