Review: Snowbound with the CEO by Shannon Stacey

Snowbound with the CEO 
by Shannon Stacey
Released Date: Published November 4th 2013 by Carina Press
Pages: 66
View/Purchase: Goodreads, Amazon, B&N

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.

My Review:

Adrian Blackstone didn't grew up having everything at his disposal, he worked hard to build his million-dollar business empire, but although he now has succeeded in the business world, he doesn't have what he wants the most. Having worked with his assistant, Rachel Carter for sixteen months without showing his affection towards her has been difficult to maintain for Adrian, yet he knows that he can't ruin their professional job. 

Rachel Carter has had a crush on her boss, Adrian Blackstone for a while, but she knows that mixing their professional life with a romantic one is not going to end up well. Yet she is still willing to hide her feelings for him, but little did she know that they will end up getting stranded in the middle of the mountains due to a snowstorm. What begins as a typical work day, ends up with them getting closer by the end of the night and they have to choose whether hiding their feelings is the right thing to do after spending the night together. 

Although this is novella and it was short, I really enjoyed reading it. The author did a good job describing the conflict and the resolution of the story in the novella. The story was well-written and engaging as well. Adrian is a hard working men that really fought his way to the top, and now having accomplish everything that he wanted in his career, he is able to focus on what his heart wants. On the other hand, Rachel is a funny character, she has a sense of humor that immediately captivates Adrian and their chemistry is undeniable. The ending was spot on and I highly recommend the book to those that want something short and sweet, filled with the Christmas spirit. :)
