When Emma Lafferty is hired by a billionaire CEO to watch his pets over the holidays, she expects to enjoy a quiet Christmas in opulent surroundings. What she doesn’t expect is to spend the week trapped in the mansion with Trevor Hamilton, the CEO’s sexy great-nephew—and heir—whose motives are as shady as his desire is crystal clear …REVIEW
I'm conflicted on this story. I love the romance portion of this story about two strangers trapped together in an ice storm who are drawn together. I don't, however, love the mystery portion of the book. I realize that it is the first of a three-part series of novellas that will I assume resolve in the final story, but I kind of don't care and at the same time am annoyed that it is left unresolved at the end of this book. I don't generally like cliffhangers, so that may why I have an issue here. I plan to read the novella because I expect to find another great romance and hopefully get drawn more into the mystery as well.
OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
