Book 3: Bewitching Winter

Six years ago, Neve Clark thought she’d found in Rhett Taylor the perfect doubles partner both on and off the badminton court, but their volatile relationship ended with a betrayal she couldn’t forgive. Since then, she’s dated plenty of guys in an attempt to recreate the passion she once felt with the man who broke her heart, but to no avail.

Anxious to put aside her growing despair that she’ll never find someone to replace him, she books herself on a business course in wintry Queenstown, New Zealand, with the aim of concentrating on her career as Marketing Manager for the Four Seasons lingerie company. It’s only when she turns up that she discovers the keynote speaker is her old flame.

After leaving New Zealand to pursue a career as a badminton player at international level, a series of unpredictable events leads Rhett back to the country and to the woman who haunts his dreams. A sizzling chemistry still exists between them, but even though he wants her back, Neve wants nothing to do with him.

Rhett’s not used to losing. Not everyone gets a second chance at both life and love, and this time he’s determined to win her heart…

Warning: Contains enough heat to melt the snow on the Southern Alps. Beware.

5 Star Review This is book 3 in The Four Season series but I do believe it can be read as a standalone. Rhett and Neve had lived together 5 years ago and he broke her heart. Since that day Neve had closed her heart off, no one else was going to get close to her. The last thing she expected was to see him as a speaker on a conference she had signed up for. Rhett knew Neve was going to be there and he hoped that in 3 days he could explain why he left her and put the past and the pain behind them both. This is a second chance romance that also deals with friendship and forgiveness. It has humor as well as emotion and its hot at times. What's not to love about a book like this Can't wait for book 4

Bittersweet and heartfelt; it is so good!    I really loved this book.  It has a different tone to it than the last several books by Serenity Woods, who is one of my favorite writers.  This romance novel is wistful and bittersweet for most of the book, but of course there is a happy ending.  Neve and Rhett had been college sweethearts in New Zealand, in a hot-and-heavy relationship for a year until their volcanic breakup.  Rhett had deeply hurt Neve's feelings (FYI, this did NOT involve cheating), and they did not talk to each other for five years.  Now, they find themselves at the same 4-day marketing seminar away from home in a city in wintry southern New Zealand.  Neve is unhappy with her life for several reasons, and she decides to at least be friendly with Rhett again.  After Rhett revealed something important that happened to him, Neve considers having a temporary fling with him.  Rhett has missed her terribly and wants to get back together long term, but Neve can't believe that she could ever get over her hurt feelings from the breakup.    This book has really powerful themes of realizing what is important in life, moving past mistakes that people in your life have made, and how people can make themselves better.  There is also a subplot where Neve has been on the outs with her father for something terrible that he said to her.  Neve and Rhett were so real to me, and I could identify with both of them.  The feelings between the two of them were so well described and realistic.  The novel has third person alternating perspective between Neve and Rhett.  I was captivated by this romance, and it made me feel many things and caused me to think about my own life and relationships.  The author has a true gift for sensory description.  I felt that I physically was at this fancy hotel, or sitting in the marketing seminar, or on the ski slopes in the book.  Also, the scene at the end was so wonderful!    Serenity Woods really wrote something special and profound with this heartfelt, multi-faceted book.  I hope that Ms. Woods gets all of the fame, success, and awards that she so justly deserves for the depth of her writing talent.  I highly recommend this book to all fans of contemporary romance who like some steamy love scenes.     FYI, some of the love scenes were a little more sexually adventurous than in the last five books by Serenity Woods, but as always, each love scene has emotional connection between the two characters.  To me, this book rated pretty high on the steamy scale.    I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author in return for an honest review.  All opinions are my own, and I was not paid for my review.

"Bewitching Winter" is a great second-chance love story, which takes place over a snowy few days during a marketing conference. Our characters, Neve and Rhett, split over five years ago due to youthful communication issues and both have failed to find someone who inspires even a modicum of the feeling they had with the other. While the bulk of the book takes place during the marketing course, it didn't feel trapped by the location. There was enough variety to not feel stifled, but we really only follow Neve and Rhett. Most of the other characters are participants in the seminar, who help fill-in the background so it doesn't feel deserted. This does give a feel of almost coziness while Neve and Rhett try to move beyond the hurt in the past and the shocks of their time apart to rekindle friendship... at first. While they both agree to try a become friends again for the sake of their missed rapport and mutual friends, their lingering passion can't be ignored. Rhett first tries to encourage more, with Neve thinking she's only going to "give in" while she's at the seminar. The way Neve and Rhett interacted after breaking up was completely believable. There was hurt and longing, but the willingness to try at civility. They know each other too well for any other ending to happen. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Sexy and Sassy Story 4.5 Stars I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own. Although part of a series of interlocked stories about four friends who own a lingerie shop called Four Seasons, this is a standalone book. I'm a sucker for second chance stories, which allow for things to get intense quickly. Neve and Rhett both feel betrayed by the others reaction to a decision Rhett made in the past without consultation. Neve has a surprisingly soft centre which she hides with an outer shell and feisty tongue, whilst Rhett has grown into a man at home in his own skin. Though they haven't spoken in years, their feelings for each other haven't gone away and when they meet at a conference, Neve believes that she can let go of the past enough to try and be friends. Things don't stay platonic for long but Neve protects her heart by treating their encounters as a fling, which doesn't go down well with Rhett who feels they should have moved on from the mistakes in their past. When will men learn that we NEED the word 'sorry' to let go of our hurt and anger? This was a page turning book. Warning of Strong Language.

Second chances at a happily ever after don’t come often but when they do it might just be worth taking a chance on that special someone that was left behind. Neve and Rhett had a special relationship five years previous to the beginning of this story and their breakup was anything but friendly. When they come together at a business conference Rhett has the desire to reestablish his friendship with Neve but neither really wants to have their hearts broken again. As the conference progresses interesting tidbits come out that impact both of them. They realize that though they are not the same there might still be embers that can be fanned and it might be worth it to do so. Ms Woods has included a timely health topic with information that is vital to get out to the public. Not only is this a wonderful romance but it also provides ideas that made me think and want to add them to my own way of living. I loved the tidbits about New Zealand and thoroughly look forward to reading the fourth book in this delightful series. Thank you to the author for the ARC of this book to read in exchange for my honest review.
