Author: Lila Monroe

Blurb

Throwing a blow-out bash for hot rockstar-turned-music exec Ace Carmichael should be as easy as pecan pie. It’s my chance to prove my party-planning skills, but this bad boy client isn’t making life simple with his broody looks and aversion to shirts. If only he'd stop tempting me to jingle all the way...to his hot tub...this could be my big break.

But thanks to four feet of snow, the event of the year is suddenly a party for two. So deck the halls with a dangerously sexy tattooed rocker, a dozen cases of champagne and…me.

When the snow melts, Santa might not be the only one who’s coming. So what’s it going to be this year: naughty or nice?

Excerpt

I give a very theatrical, hopefully convincing yawn. “Wow, it’s late and I’m beat. Time for bed.” I click off the television as Ace stands and helps me to my feet.

​He doesn’t let go of my hand. We’re close enough that I can feel heat radiating from his body. I breathe in the scent of him, pine and snow. He’s only wearing a thin black tee shirt, and I’m pretty sure I can pick out the definition of every part of his body.

​He still hasn’t let go of my hand. Lightly, he runs his thumb across my palm.

​“I don’t know if you got the full tour of the house. Best thing about it, in my opinion, is the spa hot tub. It’s just outside.”

​“Oh?” I should take my hand away, but my body won’t do what I tell it. “It’s a little cold out there, isn’t it?”

​“Once you’re in, you won’t even notice. I’m planning on a midnight soak.” He pulls me a little closer, mischief in his expression. “Why don’t you join me?”

​“I.” There’s nothing I can say that’ll make sense. Ace grins. It’s a wicked smile, that’s the only way to describe it. “I don’t think I should,” I manage. “There’s a perfectly functional tub in my bathroom, anyway. So. I’ll just take a raincheck. On the hot tub.”

​“You don’t want to try it?” He lets go of my hand and touches my face. “Or is it that you’re afraid of me?” He trails his fingertips across my cheek. “Which is it? Door one or two? One of them leads to a fabulous destination vacation.” His voice drops to a lower register. A sexy one. “You should loosen up, party planner. It’s just hot water. And I promise you’ll still be your tough and capable self afterward.”

​My breath hitches in my throat. I’m almost ready to say something stupid, like ‘I don’t have a bathing suit’ or ‘which way to the pitch black snowy outdoors?’ when common sense crashes through the window to truss me up, sling me over its shoulder, and race away.

​“It’s going to be a long day tomorrow. I should get some sleep. Good night.” I break away from him as not-awkwardly as possible and head upstairs. I have to stop halfway up, though, and lean against the railing and close my eyes. My heart is still racing, and all the heat in my body has pooled, not so unwelcomely, between my legs.

​I told the truth—I do have to grab a shower and go to bed. But the thought of Ace out there in the hot tub, stripped down, his muscles relaxing under the beat of the jets… 

I’ll probably need to make it a cold shower.

Review

This was a nice little surprise to see Paige finally get her own story. If you haven't read Billionaire with a Twist series you need to that is where she makes her first appearance. Anyways back to Paige, she the proper southern girl her mother raised and tries to appease her in every way. Her mom let me tell you has some messed up ideals I get it but, still that woman was like a thorn on my side. Paige has another part of her that she doesn't dare unleash around her mom. She is independent and has her own party planning business. That is how she meet Ace, she was contracted by him to plan his Christmas party. Ace is a former drummer now turned music executive who is instantly attracted to her. Well if you read the title you know that they get snowed in so no party. What happens when their is cases of champagne and loads of food and two gorgeous people in a breathe taking home? Yes, we see a glimpse of Ally and Hunter which is totally had me happy for them. Over this was a nice shirt read, I give four SNOW ANGELS for those who catch me drift you know thats my favorite scene haha.
