Snowed In by Sarah Title

** 1/2

Snowed In
There’s nothing like a hot kiss on a cold day…

Librarian Maureen O’Connell might have predicted she’d find herself crying into the ice cream case at the supermarket after a bad breakup—but she definitely never imagined that a guy hot enough to melt the Rocky Road would flirt with her right there in the freezer aisle. Only Gavin Fraser isn’t a fantasy, he’s a mouth-watering new flavor…

When a freak snowstorm strands Maureen at Gavin’s after just one date, it’s a perfect excuse for something a lot steamier than hot chocolate in front of the fire. It’s definitely lust. Can it also be love?


When Maureen meets Gavin, she is crying into the ice cream case at the grocery store because her boyfriend of 2 years has broken up with her.  After a hot impromptu kiss that knocks them both off their feet, Maureen runs off and Gavin is too stunned to run after her.   Fast forward two weeks later and they run into each other again.  This time in the parking lot of the same grocery store.  Maureen has been convinced that there is no better way to get her ex out of her system than by having a hot meaningless night with a hot guy.  And Gavin is the perfect hot guy for the job.  So they go out on a date that turns out to be so good that they don’t realize they’ve been chatting for  4 hours.  They also hadn’t realized that it had been snowing for most of that time.  Gavin offers to drive her home but Maureen decides to throw caution to the wind and go home with him.  Thanks to a mother of a snow storm one night turns into two and Gavin and Maureen realize that they may have something more than just a one night stand.

I admit that I had a hard time reading on after Maureen and Gavin first met.  Simply because a hero that tries to pick up an obviously vulnerable woman is the opposite of a hero.   The saving grace was that he didn’t succeed in picking her up.  He even grew on me a little bit.  It’s kind of hard to not like a guy that has read Jane Austen and enjoyed it.  But unfortunately, that first encounter left a bad taste in my mouth and made me distance myself from the rest of the story.  I also took issue with a few inconsistencies towards the end but, unfortunately, I can’t go into more detail because I don’t want to divulge any spoilers.

There is no denying that the bedroom scenes in this are hot and I was almost cheering for these two in the end.  And to be fair, it kept my interest enough that I couldn’t stop turning to the next page to see how everything turned out.  I think if you, as a reader, can look past the initial meeting or if it’s something that wouldn’t normally bother you, then this is a short winter romance that you will enjoy.
