Snowed In With Him by Martha Sweeney
Waking up in a strange bed, stranding her with the bar's known player after a major snowstorm, would do it.
What's a girl to do when they're snowed in for several days? What's a girl to do when she starts falling for the player? What should Simone do when she's unsure of which girl she is of the many romance stories she narrates for a living? Is she the girl being played before the guy finds his true love? Or, is Simone the girl who gets the guy?
"I feel like I’m in the middle of my own twisted, real-life romance story but I’m too scared to know the outcome. Which girl am I? Am I the girl being played who ends up with her heart broken? Or, am I the girl who gets the guy?"
(Note: Simone is the older sister of Harper from my short story One Kiss that was featured in the Because Beards anthology.)
3.5 Snowed in Stars
Simone and Wes have been circling one another for a while now while their best friends hook up at a local bar. Wes has always been interested in her but for some reason Simone thinks he's a player and keeps pushing him away. Until one night things change, in a funny not so funny way....you'll understand once you read the book (not going to give you any spoilers).
Simone and Wes become Snowed in at his apartment for a few days and during this time I wanted to knock some sense into her. I have to say that I enjoyed the second half much more than the first, I found Simone annoying and childish during most of the first half of the book but I really liked Wes! Simone had an inner monologue that at times would escape her and be rude.
I am totally split on this book, while I did like it I didn't love it, at times I didn't even enjoy it because of Simone not acting like the twenty-seven year old that she is, she was acting more like a sixteen year old and I really dislike when that happens because it takes me out of the story at hand and I have to remind myself she is not in high school and Wes is not a creeper hitting on a teenager.
If you enjoy stories that have the couple snowed in, or in a forced proximity, I would recommend this book to you because there is always a chance you will enjoy it more than I did....and since there are several 5 star reviews on Goodreads it's quite possible you will.
