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.
Snowbound with the ECO is my second Shannon Stacey read in one day. I’m sold on Stacey’s writing and I will be reading another of her short stories this weekend.
Snowbound with the ECO is another romance where the couple have known each other for a while and I love when they have a history. It makes them falling in love more believable. The couple in question work together if you can’t tell by the title. Rachel is Adrian’s assistant and she has had a crush on him since taking the position within his company. Adrian also has a thing for Rachel. Neither knows it and they have done a great job of hiding it.
The two travel out-of-town to meet a client and get snowed in while the client gets snowed somewhere else and can’t make the meeting. To make things worse (or better) Rachel and is snowed in with Adrian at a very romantic inn. After they share a couple of drinks in the inn’s bar they take things up to Adrian’s room.
They share an amazing weekend together, both wondering what will happen when they return to the office on Monday.
I can’t wait to read one of Shannon Stacey’s full length novels if she can impress me with the telling this touching, sexy and emotional romance under 80 pages.
