Marissa Clarke was going to murder someone. And that someone was her former sorority sister—now former friend—who had just kicked her out of her own hotel room…in the middle of the night…at their friend’s wedding…for some hanky-panky with an old fling. So much for sisterhood. With no room in the inn and no place to stay, she’s forced to accept help from the last person she ever wanted to spend the night with again: Scott, devilishly handsome, smart, and her ex-fiance’s ex-best man.
Scott Parker has loved Marissa since the first day he bumped into her freshman year of college. Only he’d never been able to tell her. After all, you didn’t just grab your best friend’s girlfriend, kiss her and tell her she was the One for you, no matter how often he’d dreamed about it. Now, years later, Marissa is single and, in a moment of pure luck, staying at his cabin. When a winter storm blocks the roads and snows the two of them in, Scott is determined to make Marissa see there can be more between them than a shared history…if only she’ll let him.
I’m a sucker for a second chance romance book and Snowed In by Jenna Bayley-Burke is just that. This is the second book from the More Than Friends series, and it can be enjoyed as a standalone.
Marissa Clarke was just a freshman in college when Scott Parker saw her and fell hard for her. However, she was dating the star basketball player, who just so happened to be one of his teammates. The “one” for Scott was someone else’s girl. Fast forward a few years later when Scott watches his teammate and now groom-to-be break the heart of the girl he loves more than anything. Scott knew that Marissa was oblivious to her fiance’s cheating ways but knew he was damned if he told her, damned if he didn’t. Well, Scott didn’t tell her and the feud began.
Marissa Clarke is now an event planner helping to run one of her best friends’ wedding along with being the Maid of Honor. While there, she runs into a former college classmate Scott Parker and is very obviously trying to avoid him at all costs since he knew what exactly was going on with her ex-fiance.
Successful business owner Scott Parker has always held every girl to the standard of Marissa. Seeing her again after all this time at their friend’s’ wedding has brought up all his feeling for her once again.
After the wedding, Marissa is stranded without a hotel room and has only Scott to save her. After a massive snowstorm, they are Snowed In and both give in to the amazing chemistry they have together. Now they just have to figure out how they can be together while their lives lead them in different directions.
Snowed In was a charming tale of one person knowing they belong together and one person just figuring it out. The sexual tension between the two could have melted all the snow they were stranded in and the dirty talk….WOW!!!
I give Snowed In by Jenna Bayley-Burke 4 stars!
