Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Buoni Amici Press and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

Billionaire CEO Dylan Truex was burnt out. Not from his empire, DIRTY GAINS, but from his celebrity status. Having the body he did as well as the motivation to lead the pack, was no longer all it was cracked up to be. Heading to Estes Park for a two-week getaway all by himself sounded like the perfect solution to all his problems. Until he arrives and finds that the condo has been double-booked. Sharing the condo, he can handle. Cute blondie tempting him to break his no-sex bet, err…
When Lina Armstrong runs away from her old life—walking out on her job and leaving behind her family—the best thing she can do is reclaim her true self. No boss. No family. No men. No anybody. Then comes handsome stranger Dylan Truman threatening to wreck her alone time at Pine Lake. Yeah, he’s cute and all, but so are the elk and that doesn’t mean she wants to share a condo with them.
When the blizzard hits and whiteout conditions make it unsafe for either of them to go anywhere, they are forced to stay put in the condo together. What started off as a bad thing, starts to turn into something good. Two weeks with this cocky hard body? Alright, if she must.
It shouldn’t be a problem as long as she can keep her hands to herself and stop imagining if his tongue has as much stamina as the rest of his body.

My Thoughts:

Dylan Truex believes in a health regimen but is he doing it for the right reasons.  He shows how much social media can affect someone’s life.  It gets better though when he decides to get away for a while.  Lina Armstrong isn’t easily impressed.

The author slowly reveals some of the things these two have in common. While that’s going on she also slowly builds up the heat between our two mismatched characters.  Let’s just say that if I had the room I’d be looking into a wood-burning fireplace.  Loved the giggle moments.  They had me looking forward to more.  Also loved the tension and uneasiness that showed through.

I’ve seen guys like Dylan in the gym.  You know the ones.  You can picture them rubbing their abs (to make sure they didn’t go anywhere) and then the imagery of him kissing his guns.  You know the ones.  They always work out in front of the mirror.  The ones that aren’t just making sure they’re doing their form correctly.  Oh, and let’s not forget the big jug with their favorite workout drink.  That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate looking at the fruits of their labor and they certainly helped me in forming an image of Dylan.  And don’t get me started on ego.

Once I get past that image, I start to get a look at Lina.  She’s a strong woman on the outside but she seems so timid on the inside - a little unsure of herself.  But she’s willing to step out of her comfort zone and go off by herself to try and reinvent herself.  Then our author puts temptation in her way.  I got so into the story that everything seemed to disappear.  The cold was outside but it got nice and toasty in my living room. 

There were just so many things that kept my attention.  First we have a man that I’m surprised there was enough room for him and his ego.  We have a woman who has shut herself off from everyone but does she have enough room in her heart to actually let someone in.  Even Mother Nature has a role in this story and with winter right outside my window it helped to create the perfect backdrop.  My climax was when I got to the romantic ending – yes, Dylan did redeem himself in my eyes- but I have other billionaires to check out in the series.  I also have an author who happens to have other books that I can check out.

Ashley Bostock was born and raised in Colorado where she currently resides with her husband, two children and her animals. She loves reading, writing, and music and is always trying to find more time in the day to incorporate all three.

Seeking an outlet and pursuing her life-long passion for writing, she began composing her first novel in 2013. She has traveled all over the world, but still has an extensive list of places she would love to visit. Anywhere near a sky-blue ocean will always be at the top of that list.

She carries a Bachelor’s Degree in History with a concentration in Elementary Education from Metropolitan State College of Denver. While she loves children, she now fears teaching, which probably has something to do with being a stay-at-home mom.

She is mostly active on Instagram, but feel free to follow her at any or all of her social media pages!
