Blurb: Christmas is a time of love, second chances…and getting stuck on a project with the one coworker who drives you insane.
Adam Reynolds loves working as a graphic designer for Roland-Wainwright, but he could do without being tied to so-called marketing genius Jason Edmond. The man might know his way around a campaign, but he’s boring and far too demanding. Though, Adam has to admit that the man is incredibly sexy and maybe there is a little mystery about what he does when he’s not wrapped in his form-hugging suit all day.
Jason ecstatic to be selected to work on this unique marketing campaign for Roland-Wainwright, but he’s not looking forward to dealing with Adam’s know-it-all attitude. Okay, so maybe the guy creates visually stunning graphics that are so far ahead of his peers…and maybe he is occasionally distracted by Adam’s sinful mouth.
Jason and Adam must find a way to work together to complete the campaign without killing each other. And if they succeed, the prize at the end stands to change both their lives in ways they never imagined.
Review: Jocelynn Drake made a fan of me with book one in this heartwarming holiday collection, Walking on Thin Ice, solidified it with Ice, Snow, and Mistletoe, and locked it up tight with Snowball’s Chance, an enemies-to-lovers workplace romance that goes from simmer to boil to happily ever after, and left my heart a little melty in the process.
Jason Edmond and Adam Reynolds have some opinions about each other, none of them particularly flattering, some of them influenced maybe a wee bit by the office rumor mill. But, in spite of how much each man wants to believe the worst about the other, neither can deny the other’s intelligence or talent for their respective jobs at Roland-Wainwright Enterprises. The issue, first and foremost, is that they’re both stubborn and neither man wants to listen to any opinion that might differ from their own vision of how to carry out any given project. When a corporate rebranding competition is announced, the bonus for which will net the winning team a hefty sum of cash—and would clear up a lot of problems for Jason in the process—they’ll have to call a cease-fire, learn how to put aside the hostilities and work together. And they do. Of course they do. This is a holiday romance, after all.
The idea that the opposite of love is not hate, but that apathy is the opposite of both is a good thing to keep in mind here, because the passionate dislike these two men feel for each other quickly ignites into a combustible lust, and then, just as quickly becomes a closer friendship. And then, something more. I know there will be readers who are bothered by the speedy evolution of Adam and Jason’s relationship, but I was not at all. Drake offers up little moments that made me a believer, and emotions sometimes don’t need a reason; they just…are.
In spite of some tense moments and a sprinkling of family conflict that resolves itself in a way that made me adore Adam’s brother ever more than I already had, Snowball’s Chance is a sweet, low angst, sexy and romantic, Holiday Romance lover’s treat.
