Snowbound Seduction

Melissa Schroeder

March 21st 2016 by Entangled Publishing, LLC (Select Contemporary)  

This blizzard is blazing hot…

 

Trevor MacMillian is the tart and incredibly sexy executive chef who’s made pastry chef Elaine Masterson’s life a living hell. But when she catches him in nothing but a tiny little towel, it’s almost enough to make her forget they’re stranded in a luxurious mountain cabin together…or that she hates him almost as much as she craves him like a sinfully forbidden dessert.

Being alone in a romantic secluded cabin might just kill Trevor outright. If Elaine hates him now, how much will she hate him if she finds out he’s been fantasizing about her full, kissable lips? So Trevor argues with her. Makes her angry— until an intense and unexpected kiss turns their hostility into insatiable hunger. And with this much heat, the snowstorm outside doesn’t stand a chance…

Melissa Schroeder teases and tempts readers with the delicious sexual tension of Snowbound Seduction.

 

The animosity flying in the kitchen between Trevor and Elaine has nothing on what the two truly feel for each other and are afraid to show it.  When the two stubborn chefs get tricked into a weekend alone it put up or shut up time for them both.

 

A quick, read that’s sweet and tempting. I loved the witty, back and forth banter between Elaine and Trevor.  Their tension turned passion is as delectable as the dishes they create.  Enemies to lovers are some of my favorite stories, Trevor and Elaine will make your mouth water.

Entangled: Indulgence

 

Entertainment journalist Lita Matthews is on the verge of making it big. As in her-own-TV-show big. She just needs amazing inside scoop on the year’s hottest celebrity wedding. Instead, her big break is becoming a big nightmare—all thanks to rock star Rocky Cardano. Who apparently hasn’t gotten over what happened between them four years ago… Rocky is pretty damn familiar with just how far Lita will go for a “scoop.” Hell, their unbelievably hot hook-up in Mexico years ago was the story of a lifetime. Rocky’s learned his lessons. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep her from the story—even if he has to seduce her to the point of distraction! But Lita has always had a way of getting under his skin. Only this time, he won’t be able to just walk away…

Seventy-two hours of uninhibited lust and passion with a nameless person who sparked your body in all the right ways, sounds almost too go to be true.  True enough to rock the foundations of both Rocky and Lita.  Until the moment that names come to the faces that had them ripping their clothes off.  Changing lust for anger in a split second, leaving a lot of harmful words and deeds in wake of something that left a lasting impression soul deep.  Fast forward four years, Rocky and Lita skate around each other in social settings, while harboring both animosity and underlining desire.  When paired together for friends wedding has both heads and clothes flying.

Lita loves the spotlight. Being the daughter of Hollywood and an entertainment reporter she knows all too well how the game is played.  Being presented with an opportunity to fill her dream puts her in an awkward position.  She surprised me by not being a ruthless, cut throat reporter. She has a sense of dignity and pride in what she does. She adds a bit of class to world that can be very ugly.  She’s a true friend. She went out of her way, above and beyond and even surprise me by sacrificing something I didn’t think she would.

Rocky is the the hottest recluse known to man. Drummer for an amazing rock band who’s always in the media spotlight, Rocky prefers to sit behind his kit, playing music.  He’s known for his dislike of reporters. Rocky will avoid them at all cost. He has his reasons. A private man who is fiercely loyal to those he cares about. Sexy, headed and protective, Rocky won my heart from the very beginning.

The chemistry and sexual tension between Rocky and Lita set the stage for this quick read. Tempers flair, passion flow and a few people learn who they really are and what they want in life.  Playing with the Drummer hits the spot for a good Rocker Romance.
