Four tree-top stars for Shannon Stacey's holiday novella, Snowbound with the CEO

Shannon Stacey is an author I first encountered through her Kowalski Family novels, which I really enjoy reading. So, I was very pleased to see that her publisher was sharing with reviewers a copy of her holiday novella, Snowbound with the CEO.

When building mogul Adrian Blackstone is snowed with his assistant Rachel at a luxury resort he designed, neither seems to be able to deny their mutual attraction. It's a fun introduction to two slightly complicated people and the description of the resort made me want to book in immediately over the holidays.

There are some complications with their romance though - not least that Rachel works for Adrian and he's a stickler for not getting involved with employees. Can they work this out? Can they learn to trust their inner heart's feelings? Or is this just a weekend romance?

I'm sure that you'll enjoy this novella as much as I did. I'm giving it four tree-top stars for a nice entry for the holiday season read.

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.
