Overall: 4 stars — It seems for me that I always end up liking the first book the best…but I’m probably misremembering. That was definitely the case here though! It started off really strong, but all the books were solid Christmas reads. It was interesting to see how each author took the “snowed in together” trope and made it their own. Stranded in the Snow (Holiday Acres #2) by Noelle Adams 4.5 stars — I was easily invested in Scott and Olivia, it surprised me a bit. I tend to be wary of enemies to lovers tropes, and since this one was based on a lot of misunderstandings and assumptions I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it (because I hate the assumptions game). I think I was just surprised by both characters, in the best way, and I couldn’t help but love them both. I was surprised by a lot of the things we learned about Scott’s past, and it made my heart hurt for him. My heart also ached for Olivia and the childhood stigma’s she was still struggling with. Basically it had more depth than I was expecting, characters that I connected with, and the romantic chemistry was solid. I’ll definitely be looking for the other books in this series! A Christmas Rescue (Silver Bell Falls #4) by Samantha Chase 3.75 stars — There was so much I enjoyed about this book, cute characters, interesting backstory. But I couldn’t get over how genuinely annoyed Gavin was with Bailey’s chatty personality. I never really got the impression that he figured out that his attitude was clouding it. I don’t know. It’s a silly thing to get hung up on. But every time I would be enjoying their chemistry, I would get hit by a moment where one or the other really didn’t like the other. But, bonus: puppies! Love on the Edge of Reason (Pine Harbour #8) by Zoe York 3.5 stars — I don’t think I quite understood Chloe’s hangups…like I got them to a point, but not to the degree she pushed Tom away. They were kind of a strange couple. I wonder if it’s partly that the short novella form hindered us getting background on them. Basically it was a cute Christmas story, but it didn’t blow me away. And I wouldn’t have minded an epilogue to find out how things went. Also, this was one had the poorest editing.

Snowed in for Christmas is a lovely collection of three brand new contemporary holiday romances. Each story takes place while a couple is snowed in and I can see each as a perfect Hallmark movie. These tales work fabulously as stand alone reads if that is your preference. Stranded in the Snow (Holiday Acres #2) by Noelle Adams; 4 Wine Glasses This is a steamy enemies-to-lovers tale. Olivia and Scott have known each other since they were children. Even though they have been mutually attracted to each other, due to misunderstandings, they’ve become adversaries. It doesn’t help that there’s bad blood between their families too. When they are stranded in a cottage during a snow storm, will they be able to tear down the walls between them? A Christmas Rescue (Silver Bell Falls #4) by Samantha Chase; 4 ½ Wine Glasses This is a sweet enemies-to-lovers tale. It’s my top choice of the three and was the reason I picked up this anthology. In full disclosure, this story takes place in one of my favorite Christmas towns, Silver Bell Falls. A new veterinarian has taken over the practice and he’s not a fan of Christmas which has aptly earned him the title of Dr. Grinch. Will a delivery of puppies and their forced stay at the clinic due to a snowstorm help Bailey change Dr. Grinch’s mind about Christmas and them? Love on the Edge of Reason (Pine Harbour #8) by Zoe York; 4 Wine Glasses This is a steamy friends-with-benefits-to-lovers tale. Tom and Chloe have had a spur-of-the-moment-hook-up relationship for the past year. Then, Chloe surprises Tom with the news that she’s pregnant and disappears without giving Tom the chance to tell her that he’s wanted more from their relationship since the beginning. Can Tom find her and convince her to give their love a chance? I thoroughly enjoyed the snowed-in fun on each and every page and highly recommend this Christmas anthology!

ARC for honest review with no compensation, for Love on the Edge of Reason by Zoe York. 4.5 stars Tom and Chloe have had a “friends with benefits” relationship for the past year but when she suddenly finds out she pregnant, she packs up and leaves Pine Harbour. Tom realizes he may not have handled the announcement properly but when he goes to talk with Chloe she has left...he needs to find her as they have so much to discuss.... Will Christmas and a blizzard bring them back together and show them that love binds them together or will her past keep them apart?? Purchased the anthology and looking forward to reading the other books!!

Is the middle of October too early to start reading Christmas books? No way! These three have me ready to put on the carols and string up the lights, especially since it is cold and blustery outside right now. These three novellas prove that even when you think the other one is not right for you, a surprise may be around the corner. I was sent this ARC to read for the middle book by Samantha Chase but read all three. Let me tell you about Dr. Gavin Maguire and Bailey Walsh though. He is Dr. Grinch and his employees revolt and decorate the reception area for Christmas and he explodes. This is the last straw for Bailey and she turns in her letter of resignation but after hours he calls her into his office and while there he gets a calls about a dog in distress who is having puppies. Bailey, with her soft heart, wants to tag along, and after bringing the dog back to the clinic and delivering puppies, they are snowed in. Oh my, does the weekend get away from them and heat up. Will this be the start of something good and new? I really enjoyed all three books but especially this one. I highly recommend this one, any time of the year! **Received this ARC for review**

This is a great romantic Christmas collection to get in you in the mood for Christmas! I had the opportunity to read Love on the Edge of Reason by Zoe York and loved it. It is the eighth book in her Pine Harbour series and definitely worth reading. Tom Minelli realized he had done everything wrong with Chloe Davis concerning not only their relationship, but also how he responded when she told him that she was pregnant. Now he had no idea where she was or why she fled Pine Harbour, but she was pregnant with his baby and he wanted her back and he was going to do everything he could to make it right. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

3.5 Stars! Snowed in for Christmas is comprised of three holiday novellas by authors Noelle Adams, Samantha Chase and Zoe York. I love the "snowed in" theme and never pass up the opportunity to read this romance trope. These established romance authors never fail to disappoint. Stranded in the Snow, Noelle Adams - 3.5 Stars Olivia and Scott have known each other since grade school, and overtime they have convinced themselves that the romantic pull they feel is insignificant. Unfortunately, the bad blood between their respective families will always hang over their heads. A snowstorm right before Christmas traps them together in a little cottage, which results in a forever they could never have imagined. I liked this story and Olivia and Scott are a hot couple. Their sexy times are steamy as well as loving. I found Olivia's character to be a bit whiny and immature, and at times I had to tune out her dialogue. Scott was a good guy and I felt his need to be loved with every discovery he made about his life. The realism between the two characters was perfectly executed in the epilogue. A Christmas Rescue, Samantha Chase - 4 Stars Dr. Gavin Maquire is a veterinarian with a huge heart, however, he does not have any Christmas spirit. He recently took over a thriving practice in the small town of Silver Bell Falls, complete with receptionist Bailey Walsh and two assistants. Bailey is wonderful at her job, even though she is a tad too chatty for Gavin's liking. Both Bailey and Gavin find each other attractive, however, Gavin prefers to keep his personal life private and distances himself from all non-related work issues. Thus, Bailey and Gavin never have any meaningful conversations. While the town is decorated beautifully for the holiday season, the vet practice is void of any Christmas cheer. Gavin the Grinch has become quite commonplace in and around the office and town. Thanks to a couple of heated arguments, a snow storm that prevents Bailey from going home after work, and a litter of homeless puppies, Bailey and Gavin are able to find their forever together. This is a well-written, clean Christmas story. Love on the Edge of Reason by Zoe York - 2.5 Stars Unfortunately, I did not care for this novella. I was unable to feel a connection between the two main characters, librarian Chloe Davis and Tom Minelli, a search and rescue expert. However, the sex scenes are incredibly hot. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

This review is for The Christmas Rescue by Samantha Chase. I completely adored this book. It had a bit of an enemies to lovers feel to it. Bailey was the perfect heroine. Sweet, sexy, fun, and didn’t let anyone walk all over her. Gavin was a butthead at the start of this. But I soon fell in love with him and his gruffness (and stubbornness). A perfect Christmas read that I would definitely recommend!

Stranded in the Snow Noelle Adams 4 stars - I really liked the story and was completely engrossed in the emotional reactions of the characters. I didn't feel a lot of sexual spark between them but definitely felt their reactions to each other A Christmas Rescue -Samantha Chase 5 stars I loved Bailey and Gavin's story. Enemies to lovers with dogs cannot go wrong. Gavin in particular spoke to me and my heart hurt for him. Lucky for Bailey, he was able to turn things around judt as she was too! Love on the Edge of Reason Zoe York 5 stars *sigh* Completely and utterly loved Tom and Chloe's story. Both so sure personally yet so confused of their relationship. Watching them figure things out was frustrating and yet so fulfilling once they did

This book is Fantastic! Three fantastic stories, by three fantastic authors, for under a dollar need I say more. They are charming, warm, sexy gems. A whole lot of sweet. A whole lot of heat. And everything in between. These stories had me practically swooning with anticipation from one page to the next... The characters are fabulously crafted and gloriously complicated. Giving us such wonderful stories, filled with animosity, lust and need...and so much emotion and love. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own

Snowed in for Christmas has three fun, flirty, holiday stories to get you into the Christmas spirit. Written by three amazing authors, the heroine and hero of each story have been forced together due to a snow storm. Stranded in the Snow by Noelle Adam: Olivia and Scott present a excellent enemies to Lovers story since there is so much bad blood between their families. When forced to be together they have to put things aside to get by. As they do they realize they have feelings for each other, and it’s not necessarily hatred. A Christmas Rescue by Samantha Chase: Bailey is a native of Silver Bell Falls while Gavin is new to the area. He just took over the Veterinary clinic in town and doesn’t enjoy Christmas. Silver Bell Falls is all about Christmas. When they are forced together to take care of a new mom her puppies they both give in to something they have been dreaming about. Love on the Edge of Reason by Zoe York: Chloe is pregnant and Tom is the father, but Chloe “runs” away. Tom knows a storm is coming and he wants to make sure Chloe is ok. He doesn’t feel like he has done anything right leading up to this. This is a delightful collection; filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, and endearing characters. I highly recommend this book to other readers.

This review is for Stranded in the Snow by Noelle Adams I love a good enemies to lovers so I was ready for Olivia and Scott. Scott has grated on Olivia for years now and the fact that there is bad blood between their families doesn’t help. Although Scott has let go of a lot of the anger from previous years, now he’s such a huge player and Olivia shouldn’t find him attractive. When a snow storm strands them at one of the Holiday cottages, she finds out that there is so much more to him and that the man she thought she knew him to be is just a façade. I loved this couple and their crazy bickering ways. Scott knew just how to get Olivia riled and she was always determined to win their verbal sparring matches. I was shocked and heartbroken to learn of Scott’s past and the reasoning behind much of his decisions as an adult. But I loved that this couple’s beginning was actually years in the making and that something as simple as model cars could be a turning point. This is a fast paced read that’s perfect for an afternoon. The chemistry between these two was obvious and well written. This storm has set up the other characters with the potential for confrontation with their soon to be heroes/heroines and I can’t wait to read how the members of these two families finally find their ever after.

Sweetly thrilling holiday romances that will make you feel all warm and cozy..... Each one has a different trapped in a snowstorm romance from three very entertaining series, loved all three! Olivia and Scott are the perfect enemies to lovers holiday story complete with a interesting family feud built in.... Really enjoyed getting to know the charters from Holiday Acres and it makes me want to find the other books in the series. Bailey and Gavin area also an enemies to lovers holiday story that is filled with so much heart.... I really loved their witty banter and emotional insight. Who could possibly resist Silver Bell Falls at Christmas. Tom and Chloe are a sweetly heartwarming friends with benefits to so much more story... An unexpected pregnancy has Chloe running for the hills and Tom desperate to prove that they can be so much more then either of them originally though possible.

I really love holiday stories and I apparently sorta have a thing for people getting stranded together too. I thought all 3 of these were just so cute! I really enjoyed Noelle Adams' Stranded in the Snow. Olivia and Scott were a great pairing and it was so much fun seeing their story unfold especially after their past. I enjoyed this couple and this story very much. Samantha Chase's A Christmas Rescue was my fave. I love Gavin, there was just so much more than met the eye with him. He was so anti-Christmas, sort of a Scrooge/Grinch combined but he sure had his reasons as we find out. Bailey and the other two women who worked at the animal hospital gave Gavin a very hard time not knowing what his issues were with Christmas. I like that he and Bailey have secretly been pining over each other and it takes a dog in labor at a shelter Gavin volunteers at to turn things around for them and they are able to bond and fall in love when they are snowed in together with the mama dog and her puppies. Turns out they were a lot better suited for each other than either of them could've imagined. Zoe York's Love on the Edge of Reason was good but not long enough. Chloe and Tom were having a fling until things got very real. Tom did not react well and Chloe leaves. When he chases after her after realizing he's being stupid, they end up getting snowed in for a bit. I wanted nothing more than for them to find their happily ever after but was not sure they'd get there. As a whole, this was an enjoyable group of Christmas stories that in the end will make you smile.

NOTE: My review covers Samantha Chase and Noelle Adams only A CHRISTMAS RESCUE (Silver Bell Falls #4) by Samantha Chase REVIEW: A CHRISTMAS RESCUE by Samantha Chase follows the acrimonious relationship between veterinarian Dr. Gavin Maguire , and office receptionist Bailey Walsh. The holidays are just around the corner, and Silver Bell Falls Pet Clinic has lost the Christmas spirit thanks to Dr. Gavin Maguire or Dr. Grinch as his employees have started to call him. Unable to stand Gavin’s Scrooge-like behaviour Bailey and the staff decorate the office for Christmas only to be threatened with their jobs within hours of arrival. Unwilling to stand down, Bailey hands in her resignation but quickly finds herself as the veterinarian’s assistant when a homeless lab goes into labor at a downtown shelter, and a snow storm shuts down Silver Bell Falls. What ensues is the quick building romantic relationship between Gavin and Bailey when Bailey becomes snowbound in Gavin’s apartment, and the potential fall-out as Gavin’s past continues to eat away at his heart and his soul. A CHRISTMAS RESCUE is a sweet story of acceptance,understanding, love and moving forward. The premise is engaging; the romance is passionate-the $ex scenes are implied and fade to black; the characters are colourful, dynamic and stubborn. Samantha Chase invites the reader to Silver Bell Falls where love truly does conquer all. REVIEW: STRANDED IN THE SNOW by Noelle Adams is a contemporary, adult , stand alone romance story line in the author’s Holiday Acres Series. This is marketing and advertising coordinator Olivia Holiday, and photographer Scott Matheson’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Scott and Olivia) STRANDED IN THE SNOW follows the enemies to lovers relationship between event coordinator Olivia Holiday, and photographer Scott Matheson. There is some bad blood between the Holiday and Matheson families, bad blood that has resulted in a long standing feud over ownership of the Holiday family owned Holiday Acres in central Virginia. Hoping to get an early look at one of the cottages for an upcoming photo shoot, Scott and Olivia find themselves snowbound in the Holiday Acres honeymoon cottage, where food is in abundance but the power and heat are in short supply. Emotional and overly sensitive, Olivia struggles with her nearness to a man she loves to hate. Time together means reminiscing about events of the past, and the realization that not all is as it seems. What ensues is the enemies to lovers relationship between Scott and Olivia, and the potential fall-out as Scott struggles with demons from his past. STRANDED IN THE SNOW is a fast paced, entertaining and heart breaking story line. There is some back story and history between the Matheson and Holiday families but the current generation is pushing aside the poison and lies that all but destroyed two families.

Stranded in the Snow by Noelle Adams Enemies to Lovers is one of my favorite tropes to read. I love to witness the realization of lust and then love between two characters. I also happen to love heroes that were nerdy and quiet in school and later become handsome gentleman that can knock a girl’s sock off! Noelle Adams does not disappoint in this story! Olivia and Scott are the perfect match and their time snowed in together was fun to watch. While there was a bit of drama after the snow stopped falling, I loved how Scott showed up to prove to Olivia that she was what he wanted. A Christmas Rescue by Samantha Chase I very rarely get emotional when I read a story but leave it to Samantha Chase to make the tears flow. The scene with the birth of the puppies touched my heart and was one of the sweetest things I’ve read in a long time! Gavin and Bailey are an unlikely couple on the surface. They come from different places with different experiences but once they were snowed in together and learned about each other, the match was perfect! I loved how each changed their way of thinking and became better people because of their time together. Gavin and Bailey’s chemistry was off the charts! Love on the Edge of Reason by Zoe York I found this story to be raw and honest. The fact that both Tom and Chloe could talk about how they felt about the present, the past, and the future was refreshing. Although their friends with benefits relationship takes a sudden turn into something more serious because of circumstances, they both act like adults. There is very little drama in this story – there is emotion, short-lived arguments, laughter, passion, love, snowball fights and a happily-ever-after

Stranded in the Snow (Noelle Adams) ; This super cute story gives us a feeling that everything and anything is possible around Christmas time. Even falling in love with the one person who you couldn't stand or who you think you can't stand. Scott and Olivia had a great chemistry between them and it was only natural that things progressed to something more between them. This was a beautiful 4,5* read. A Christmas Rescue (Samantha Chase) ; I like this story. To say that Bailey and Gavin were like day and night is an understatement. I could relate to Gavin not liking the over the top excitement about Christmas (don't hate me :P). But I was cute to read how Bailey tried to open him up a bit and fun to see to what lengths Gavin went to keep her in his life even if it meant “catching” her Christmas fever. I give this one 4*. Love on the Edge of Reason (Zoe York) ; People that know me can testify how much i love Zoe York. I'm starting to have problems with deciding if I love her more as Zoe or as Ainsley. This story is full of people trying so hard to escape everything and everyone in order to not to get hurt. It a story about how sometimes all you need is time and courage to let yourself go and fall for the one who stands in front of you. I give this little gems 5*. ***Review copy requested and reviewed on behalf OMGReads Blog***

The perfect holiday read for this season. Three novellas that all take place while being snowed in, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories but my favorite was from Samantha Chase. A Christmas Rescue. Enemies to lovers, that takes place in one my favorite Christmas town, Silver Bell Falls. With the delivery of puppies and being snowed in with her boss, Dr Grinch, the local veterinarian, Bailey might change his mind of Christmas. This is a sweet romance. Stranded in the Snow by Noelle Adams, Scott and Olivia are stranded in a cottage during a snow storm, they are enemies to lovers. Scott has always been a player where Olivia is looking for her forever. After being stranded, will Scott realize he wants more than one night stands. The heat level is a little hotter. Love on the Edge of Reason by Zoe York, is a surprise baby. Tom and Chloe have had a casual relationship but secretly Tom has always wanted more. They are stranded in a snow storm and can Tom prove to Chloe that he his her forever. The heat level is hot. Each book can be read as a stand alone, I highly recommend these stories of finding love at Christmas.

I'm in the mood for love. Aren't you? Tis the season for feel good stories that ward off the chill and make the heart rejoice. Snowed in for Christmas makes for a great stocking stuffer. Three unforgettable voices unite in a song of courageous hope, irresistible romance and powerful storytelling. Chase, York and Adams remind us there's a hint of grinch in us all, but a bad attitude does not hide a pure heart. Fun, flirty and heartwarming. Chase away those winter blues with the healing power of love.

Snowed in for Christmas contains 3 phenomenal stories by 3 spectacular authors Noelle Adams, Samantha Chase and Zoe York Do you like Christmas stories? Then this book is certainly for you, times 3. There 3, yes, 3 wonderful books by the phenomenal Zoe York, Samantha Chase, and Noelle Adams. First, I must say, when I heard about this book and the authors involved, I screamed “YES”!!! These are three of my all-time favorite authors. I have yet to read ANYTHING by them that I have not absolutely loved, and these wonderful stories are no exception!!! Each of these stories are part of individual series by all three authors. Yes, they are all standalone stories. You will recognize some of the subcharaters In Noelle Adams story, Stranded in the Snow (Holiday Acres, Book 2), we have an enemies to lovers story. Olivia Holiday and Scott Matheson are the heroine and hero of the story. Their families were friends and business partners until Olivia’s father swindled Scott’s father out of the business. After Olivia’s father dies, they find proof of what he did and the Holiday’s make amends to the Matheson’s and all is forgiven, well almost all. Scott and Olivia…not so much. The situation between Scott and Olivia comes to a head when they are stranded together during a snowstorm. Watching the two of them work out their differences while trapped together…. Let me say this communication and understanding was key. I was pulled into this story from the very beginning and did not want to be let out. Samantha Chase’s A Christmas Rescue (Silver Bell Falls, Book 4) was the second story in this wonderful book. I have read most of the books in Ms. Chase’s Silver Bell Falls series, and thus far, I think this is my favorite, maybe it’s the puppies, maybe the characters, but most definitely the story. I really like “love unknown” stories. Bailey and Gavin both have an attraction to the other, but neither will admit it to the other. Silver Bell Falls is a town steeped in Christmas traditions. Gavin, he is new to town. When he had the chance to take over the local veterinary clinic, he could not help moving there, in spite of his feelings for Christmas, and all it represents to him and his past. Holly LOVES Christmas and everything the town does to represent the holiday. Holly and Gavin butt heads about decorations in the office to the point that she quit her job over them. The evening she is giving Gavin her resignation an emergency call comes in regarding a severely pregnant dog having trouble with the labor. Holly goes with Gavin to bring the dog back to the clinic. When a severe snow storm hits Holly and Gavin are stranded together with an in labor pregnant dog, and then her puppies. While they are stranded, and here it is again, they really start to communicate. Gain tells Holly why he feels the way he does about Christmas, and eventually they both admit their feelings for the other. But Gavin still holds back and Holly and she confronts him about it, and when he won’t commit… sorry ladies, no spoilers. I will say I wanted to Gibbs slap Gavin in the back of the head. Zoe York’s Love on the Edge of Reason (Pine Harbour, Book 8). This story is a “friends with benefits” story. Weeellll, that is what Chloe (our heroine) thinks, and when a surprise pregnancy happens, she takes off after misinterpreting To m’s (the hero) reaction to the news. You see, Tom loves Chloe, but he knows that she will never return his feelings, so he is afra
