it was amazing

Having thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to read this sequel. Again, the main characters are eighteen, finishing school soon and deciding where to study next. This time, however, the story is set in Aspen and involved snowboarding, family holidays and many choices to be made….and the title is highly appropriate but you'll have to read it yourself to find out why!

The Miller and Madison parents have been friends since college and have regularly spent holidays together, especially after they had children. Their children have therefore grown up together, even though they lived miles apart. The Millers have a daughter, Zoey, whilst the Madisons have two sons, Luke and Parker. Luke is a charismatic risk taker, always enjoying being the centre of attention, especially when that attention is from attractive females. Parker is younger, a similar age to Zoey, and this holiday he is planning on letting Zoey know that he’d like to be much more than best friends with her. Well, that was his plan till he spotted that Zoey is flirting with Luke and Luke has also noticed that she is no longer a child and flirting back. The young men have always been rivals but never quite like this. When Luke challenges Parker to let them see which of them can win her attention things are going to be fun - until one of them has to admit to losing . . . Get ready for snow bunnies flirting with the young men, a hot incident with a towel, a serious competition, illness and a nasty accident as Zoey learns more about the young men and finally makes up her mind.

The author has maintained her brilliant character writing, with each of the main characters growing and developing through the course of the story. It was great to follow them maturing through their experiences in the story. There are some great laugh out loud moments and some that have you gasping in shock, a total emotional roller coaster ride that keeps the reader engaged and turning pages. I highly recommend this to anyone seeking a cute YA romance, a delightful, easy and engaging read with superb characters to escape into.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
