I've been a fan of Delphine Dryden for some time. I've only read a handful of her books but I've mostly enjoyed what I've read thus far. I'd forgotten about a lot of the books I own by Ms Dryden due to the...issues I had while attempting to read Gossamer Wing . Since I've recently cleared up my Gossamer Wing issue...I think I'll be reading more Delphine Dryden in the future. I still need to finish the Science of Temptation a

Considering how much I loved Delphine Dryden's Science of Temptation series, I had high hopes for Snow Job...but I was disappointed. While an author's note at the end of the book, explaining that this was an updated/ edited version of her first book explains something about the quality of writing, it doesn't retroactively make the story more enjoyable. I honestly didn't find any of the characters in the story likable--the heroine is supposedly such a hardcore environmentalist that she left her h ...more

Snow Job by Delphine Dryden

I packed in one more holiday story. And I'm so glad I did! Delphine Dryden has some excellent writing chops. How do I know this? I forgot I was reading. I was so immersed in this story, I read the whole thing at once. Honestly, I shouldn't have liked this as much as I did. It was a contemporary w/ a sort of borderline-douchey estranged hubby (didn't like his sexual tactics to get his wife back), a sometimes irritating judgmental wife (can you say "tree-hugger"?), and a

Lots of interesting pieces, but there was zero consistency in tone, and I really, really, really dislike the "family-in-law pressures a woman into staying with a guy" angle.

Based on a recommendation, I went looking for books by Delphine Dryden. So many to choose from I decided to start with Snow Job because while it had a spanking mentioned in the blurb, it wasn't a BDSM book. It is classified as BDSM, but I wouldn't say this is a BDSM book by a long shot. The entire story is told from the heroine's point of view.

We meet Elyce Anderson, environmentalist lawyer, as she storms into her soon to be ex-husbands office to complain about a construction development project

Dryden writes well enough that I kept going. But! So much was problematic.

1. The hero was totally inscrutable. I don't remember if the novel was first person (and I just finished it!), but it might as well have been. I have no idea why he did any of the things he did. And the heroine (Elyse) didn't seem to, either.

2. This is the classic example of "novel that never would have happened if people would TALK to each other."

3. It straddled a very weird line between Harlequin SuperRomance and erotica

Man loved the cover and even what I read of the blurb eons ago when I first came across this book. But the author's approach to BDSM elements was in no way appealing at all. And even if the heroine was feeling hot and bothered by how things went down and didn't feel violated. I felt violated for her! And the "hero's " approach to getting her back after being separated for a year was very much akin to rape to me. I mean he as very controlling and taking over and just all kinds of out of the blue. ...more

This is the type of book you take on vacation with you. Pretty safe to read around people who might sneak a peak, except during the hot smut scenes. Expected the smut to be harlequin novel worthy, but it was hot. I think I just needed a fuller ending for it to be pushed up to 4 stars. The main female characters rambling and indecision was a bit annoying though. Her reasons for leaving her husband seems somewhat frivolous. Don't get me wrong, leaving someone because of a change of beliefs is vali ...more

This was one of those books that was just, bland. There was nothing wrong with it per say the writing was fine and all but the characters just weren't engaging.
The heroine was fine but her actions towards the hero and their whole relationship break up just felt too contrived and easily fixed and all it was easily solved by just thinking for five minutes to compromise. The hero was just bland and a bit manipulative.
And everyone else just seemed cliche, his family was all too perfect and the 'ba

The marriage-in-trouble plot could have used slightly more development -- the justification for why the heroine walked out on her husband feels thin -- but the naughty sex scenes are so much fun, I didn't really care, and I bought the reconciliation.

So so good! The perfect holiday read. I'm sad now that it's probably the last Christmastime read for another 11 months!
I really enjoyed the premise of the story: a separated couple and the hero's desire to reconcile by any means necessary. Very hot...

For the most part, I enjoyed this story, but found Elyce's reason for leaving Karl fairly weak. As a result, I didn't really warm to Elyce and occasionally felt that Karl deserved better, especially when he tried so frequently to get her to return to him. Otherwise, it was an entertaining read.

Force seductions is just not a cup of my tea.
Give up at about 70% reads.

2.5 stars. Rounding down because I've read better from this author.

Meh. Not bad, just forgettable.

DNF at 86%. It isn't a good sign if I'm so close to the end and just can't be bothered, is it?
