"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.

It was predictable fare. Nothing offensive, but nothing out of the ordinary... a sweet read. Of course you knew from the beginning who the douches were, that was a given, almost cliche-ick, and of course you knew both the protagonists were flawed, protecting themselves from hurt, from each other, but definitely likable. It fulfilled its purpose. When I bought it, it was sold to me as a holiday read, a lovely way to pass the time of day, and it was.

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.
