|Description from Publisher:|
|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.
|Ah, snowed in. This is definitely a guilty-pleasure trope for me, and Bayley-Burke did not disappoint!
Marissa is too nice for her own good and winds up getting kicked out of her hotel room at her best friend's wedding. Which means she winds up stayed the night with her ex-fiance's college best friend, Scott, just the two of them in the middle of nowhere. Scott is pretty happy at the opportunity to have time with her, having always had a thing for her when they were in school.
In a reversal of typical gender roles, Marissa is the one who just wants some steamy fun with a hottie, while Scott is determined to persuade her to give them a chance long-term. These two really burn up the pages in this one, not excluding some pretty damn funny dirty jokes and sexual innuendos. It's not without some fun and charming emotional bonding either - their relationship is a delicious slow-burn that I really enjoyed!
