It isn't surprising anymore that I enjoy Stacy Gold short novellas,I like her writing so much I always hope her books to never end.
I've enjoyed Max and Sophie story and I've appreciated their spirit of sacrifice, on a working level, challenging arduous peacks to guarantee the safety of every skiiers and snowboarder, and in a personal way resisting their chemistry and attraction.
If you want to spend some pleasant hours reading about snowy mountains,hot ski patrollers and a strong heroine who fig
The romance is second-chance at love. I liked the H/H but the romance ends up being super rushed. I would have liked a little more time for the rekindle to burn. C+

At eighty-two pages, In Deep, was a very quick read. This is the second book in the Emerald Mountain series which returned us to the mountain with the ski patrol, instructors and other staff as well as the skiers and snowboarders. Max and Sophie are front and center and we are swept up with the chemistry between them, learn of their past as well as their families and also why they don’t seem to be getting along. A re ...more
First off it's incredibly short; it might as well be considered a novella. According to my kindle by the time you hit the first page of the first chapter, you're already 4% of the way through the book. So that's issue number one.

This author caused a lot of pent-up sexual pressure for this couple. Who hadn’t seen each other in two years? They had met at a rescue training Chili. Spent six weeks on the same team training and the same amount of nights in each other’s beds. They fell hard for one another.
When they were done with training he was moving on to another country to work a ...more
FYI: In Deep is the length between a short story and novella. Maybe, to be defined as a novelette? Personally, I think that it should be designated as such in the book blurb so that unsuspecting readers are well-informed. That being said, I knew the length going and adjusted my expectations to that of a short story/novella.
In Deep is a second chance romance that begins two years after an 8 week romance between Max and Sophie. Max has been incommunicado since their time together with rea ...more
I used to ski, but there’s a lot of terms here I don’t recognize. Maybe it’s stuff inherent to the rescue business, but I was definitely puzzled by “bombs” for a while, until it became obvious. This author has either done t ...more

Stacy Gold gave up her day job as Communications Director of a nonprofit mountain biking organization to write sassy, steamy, contemporary romance novels. Her stories are packed with strong, independent women finding love and adventure in the great outdoors (Think Sarina Bowen or Elle Kennedy, but with skiing, mountain bi ...more
