Format: Paperback
"Snowbound" is a heartwarming contemporary romance story about Robyn Montgomery a career driven radio station manager and Sean Trenton a previous Olympian skier turned ski patroller.

Robyn is forced to return to her home near a world famous ski resort for a reunion where many traumatic memories from her high school years await.

Sean loves his work as a ski patroller but is haunted by repercussions from a very unfortunate illness he endured 2 years previously. This hero is drop dead gorgeous (just look at the book's cover art and you will see what I mean - lol) and epitomizes everything women find so attractive about snow patrollers.

What made this book a keeper for me was that I could identify with the characters, especially Robyn. Larissa spins a beautiful romance between Robyn and Sean filled with conflicts and tension. The attraction between them is electric and the love scenes are sensual and gentle.

Snowbound is one of my favorite contemporary romance stories this year and I highly recommend the read.

Plot Summary: Former Olympic skier Sean Trenton left racing and his glitzy lifestyle two years ago when an injury ended his career. Now he's an EMT and works ski patrol at an alpine resort. Robyn Montgomery is the music director at a Chicago radio station and her life starts falling apart piece by piece. Her ten-year high school reunion is supposed to prove to her old tormentors that this former chubby misfit is now a success, but Robyn's comeback is headed for disaster when her ex-boyfriend backs out of his promises and further sabotages her career. When Robyn meets Sean in a bar, they're both just looking for a fling, but deeper feelings quickly develop.

I thought this one was a tad bland, which is a bummer because I very much enjoy Ione's Demonica series. Maybe it's just me, because lately when I try a standard contemporary romance, without any danger or paranormal elements, I have a hard time getting excited. I thought the Kindle edition was a great deal (four dollars and change), but I wouldn't recommend buying the paperback for $10. It's just not good enough to justify that price.

Robyn's transformation from the fat strudel-stuffed daughter of the town's bakers, to a thin, successful radio station director might rub readers the wrong way; I'm not saying that being healthy is bad, but the way Robyn obsesses over her weight is a bit depressing. Her desperation to gain acceptance from her high school cohorts was also sad. To me, Robyn represented a lot of those typical female traits that I hate, but I'm forced to acknowledge that it was all plausible and realistic.

Sean is one of those nice guy characters who are pleasant to read. We learn that he was a shallow jerk back in his hey-day, but he's already been humbled by his accident from two years ago.

This Review was first published on my blog <a href="[...]">Lecture toute une Aventure</a>

Fabulous... I took it first to past time but I devoured the book in less than an hour.... It's really a wonderful story and I do recommend it... Larissa Ione has a wonderful written style, clear and easy but even more I was touched by the message in this story. It has steamy scene... really steamy one but for me it was mostly a sweet story about acceptance and trust.

Both main protagonists have trouble with self esteem.... Robyn because she was harassed during her childhood because she was obese and studious...she grew up, lost weight, got a good career however when it's time for a reunion with her tormentor she wants to prove herself and is stressed to the point to be ill. So when her ex boyfriend and boss, Damon, cancel his participation to the auction she is organising there at the last minute, it's the disaster for her even more when she see him there....and understand he is just using her and her contacts to have a interview of importance.

Sean Trenton had it all... fame, success, money and groupie available for flings as soon as he wanted...but his dream of winning the gold medal at the Olympics crashed when he received terrible news... and had an accident nearly voluntarily. Now that his sport life is behind him and 2 years later he is healed...having a job as a skiing patroller and paramedic but that part of his life left sequels and Sean doubt himself, refusing to date a woman since he is maimed in his opinion. He is afraid of rejection, when his friend Todd encourages him to date again, he resist until he met Robyn...she is the total opposite of the women he dated in the past and worse she is not jumping on him ignoring his past fame.

Larissa Ione is one of my all time favourite paranormal authors (Demonica, Lords of Deliverance & ACRO as Sydney Croft) so I am not surprised I also loved her Contemporary Romance, Snowbound.

Robyn Montgomery has a successful career as a radio station manager and is returning to her hometown to attend her ten year school reunion and to host a charity auction to raise money for underprivileged kids, Damon her ex & boss had agreed to help emcee but at the last minute withdraws leaving her having to source someone with a high profile to help out with the event.

Robyn spent her adolescent years being ridiculed by her peers for being overweight, insecure and geeky so she sets off to show she has lost her weight, is sexy, confident and successful. The reunion and event is her chance to prove to herself she is no longer the person she was as a teen.

Sean Trenton is a world-famous skier and former Olympian, now working at the ski resort as a patroller and EMT, he is trying to get his life back together after an injury that destroyed his hopes of achieving a gold medal and a medical condition which left him feeling inadequate as a man.

When Robyn meets Sean in the resort bar, she tries to avoid him due to his popularity and past fame but he is a temptation Robyn finds hard to resist, there is an immediate connection & some scorching chemistry between them and Sean sets his sights on getting her into bed after 2 years of celibacy.

After getting to know Robyn, Sean realised she was just what he was looking for in a long term relationship, something he had never wanted before and it was also something he had to work on with Robyn since she was so adamant she didn't want someone with such a high media profile.
