Don't fall in love with the man sent to kill you...
Lorena Rubio lived a safe, simple life until she's kidnapped by Andres "Con" Conesa, right hand man for the drug lord who murdered her sister. Con must keep her at a cabin in the snowy Sierra Nevada Mountains until his boss can confirm or deny the rumor that she'd provided specifics about his drug cartel to the police. Their attraction ignites in the middle of this winter wonderland, but he's in deep cover for the FBI and has to remain there, and she refuses to attach herself to someone in the criminal world. When the boss arrives a few days and wants Lorena put on ice, Con's willing to blow his cover to save the woman he craves beyond reason, but he may be too late.
I received this book as a judge for a competition. The competition is over and done so I can now do some reviews, especially on the ones that I really enjoyed.
Snowed is the story of a young woman who is a run of your mill, normal woman. She lives her life and she works. Oh and she is hell-bent on getting her sister’s killer in jail. It doesn’t matter to her that he is one of the largest drug lords in the region. When you are that powerful you can send henchmen to kidnap and hold her until his boss can confirm if she was the leak. Just your normal every day weekend.
So you have “Con” the kidnapper, and Lorena, the kidnappee are stuck in a small, romantic cabin and the sparks begin to fly. Lorena is not okay with being with a criminal who has no qualms with taking innocent women to cabins for their deaths. Con however has his own secrets. When his boss determines Lorena’s fate, Con must either keep his secret and watch the women of his dreams die, or break his silence and let the chips fall where they may.
This is a quick read that was surprisingly a lot better than I expected. The blurb reads like many other romance books so I thought it was be just another story. It wasn’t though, and it was really good. I kind of saw the “twist” coming because there are a lot of stories have a similar twist, but it was done in a setting that was different and so that is how the author was able to set her story from similar stories.
