One magical Christmas Eve...
Caught in a blizzard, Georgia Beckett is forced down a narrow lane she'd hoped to avoid...and not just because of the snow! The road takes her past the beautiful abandoned house of her youth—the new residence of her childhood sweetheart.
Sebastian Corder's shocked to hear the doorbell ring—he never expected to see Georgia again. Nine years ago, both chasing different dreams, they went their separate ways.
Now Sebastian's hand hesitates. Is he ready to open the door to the past? But the snow's getting heavier...and there's only one way to find out!
I really enjoyed this one but it was so angsty. Not quite angsty enough for me to have the feels but I did feel so sad for both characters.
Georgina (Georgie) and Sebastian were childhood sweethearts but Georgie left Sebastian when he…suddenly changed. They were both heartbroken but handled it in different ways. Georgie went on to remarry, become a widow and have a child while Sebastian became a billionaire. Nine years later they get snowed in together (with Georgie’s son, Josh) for about a week.
During the time that Georgie, Sebastian and Josh spent alone they became a family. And there was so much emotional angst and I just felt so sad for two people who loved each other but couldn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. As Tina Turner said, “What’s Love Got to Do With It?”
While I enjoyed Snowed in with the Billionaire, it [always] pisses me off when the major conflict in any story is “if only we had talked earlier.” WTF. Nine freaking years passed while two people are miserable without each other only because someone can’t open their fucking mouth and say something. Talking is hard – it’s really hard to be vulnerable to another person. It’s hard to be in a relationship with someone and make it work – but that’s what you do when you pledge your heart to someone. You make it work.
So, all in all, this is a good book and its even better if you like angst and/or if you can emotionally attach to the characters.
