Former black ops mercenary Ronan Steel doesn’t do Christmas—not anymore. And he abso-f*ckin-lutely doesn’t do damsels in distress, banging on his door in the middle of a blizzard. Give her a ride? Hell, no. With her big blue eyes, innocent smile, and f*ck-me-senseless elf costume, that girl is nothing but trouble.
Sweet, sexy trouble that leaves him aching for a taste of what’s hidden under those candy-cane-striped tights…
Georgie Taylor will not miss another Taylor family Christmas—not after last year’s disaster, and especially not after shelling out $500 for the perfect elf costume. But a freak storm puts her holiday travel plans on ice, leaving her stranded at the secluded mountain cabin of a cocky, sexy-as-sin recluse who makes Scrooge look like a fuzzy pink teddy bear.
If only his filthy mouth didn’t make her so hot…
As the blizzard rages on, all Ronan wants for Christmas is to f*ck that good-girl smile right off Georgie’s face. And all Georgie wants is to punch Ronan in the snowballs... until he pins her down and gives her a full-blown Christmas miracle right there on the kitchen table…
High up in the Colorado Rockies, cabin fever never felt so good. But when Christmas morning dawns, what does Santa have in store for the naughty bad boy and his nice little elf?
Snowed In with the Bad Boy by Sylvia Pierce packs quite a punch. It’s sexy, insanely hot, surprisingly tender, and I loved everything about it.
It’s Christmas Eve, but former black ops soldier Ronan Steel has no desire to celebrate. Alone in his cabin in the Rocky Mountains–with no one but his faithful dog, Bella, for company–Ronan has no family or friends to spend the holiday with. Fresh out of an unconventional military career filled with covert missions where he witnessed the worst that humanity had to offer, Ronan has hardened his heart to the outside world. So he’s not sure what to make of Georgie Taylor when she shows up on his doorstep, dressed like an elf.
Georgie was on her way to surprise her family for Christmas when she crashed her car in the middle of a snowstorm–right in front of Ronan’s cabin. Grumpy Ronan isn’t keen on inviting the stranger in, despite the fact that she’s sexy as hell…but he’s left with no choice except to let Georgie take shelter for the night.
Georgie and Ronan engage in hilarious banter that reveals what opposites they are. Georgie embraces life and family, while Ronan is cynical and bitter. But underneath Georgie’s lightheartedness and Ronan’s curmudgeonly demeanor are secrets rooted in past pain. As they move past flirtation to a primal physical attraction, they realize that–despite their differences–they just might be meant for each other.
I loved everything about this book: Georgie’s good-heartedness combined with her sass, and Ronan’s smartass jokes combined with his underlying sweetness. Not to mention that this novella definitely delivers on the sexy times.
Snowed In with the Bad Boy is just the right combination of humor and emotion. This was my first time reading anything by Sylvia Pierce, but I’ll definitely be reading her again in the future.
