Teaser Tuesday #112 ~ Winter Angel (Seasons of Change #2) by Mia Hoddell

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Tease for this week comes from:

Winter Angel
(Seasons of Change #2)

Mia Hoddell

First - The Blurb:

She was on holiday. He was tricked into returning.
Neither of them wanted to be there, but neither could avoid it. 

Amy wants to be back under the sun in Portugal. However, when her suggestion is overruled in favour of a skiing holiday, even she can’t turn it down. What she couldn’t have predicted is that the holiday could make her break the one, and only, rule she has: not to get into a serious relationship again.

When Amy first sees Luke, she knows something is wrong. He’s struggling to cope with everything and her need to help people makes him the perfect distraction from the cold. He hasn’t been to the Alps in five years and he swore to never ski again. But as his defences are broken by Amy’s persistence, the winter paradise begins to reawaken his desires.

However, with constant flashbacks triggering his anxiety, he’s torn, battling conflicting emotions as he becomes increasingly captivated by Amy. She has a rule though. She didn’t go on holiday to fall for someone and the last thing she needs is to ignore her own advice. Whether or not she can move past her insecurities will depend on whether Luke can face his biggest fear.

Winter Angel is a standalone novella, but is the second book in the Seasons of Change series.

Second - The Teaser:

Tilting her head and wrapping her arms  around his waist, she was consumed by Luke. His musky cologne filled the air, blocking out the fresh smell of pine and snow. His heat warmed her, his touch the only thing on her mind as his hand kept her in place, blocking out the chill. The rough stubble on his face scratched against her skin as he deepened the kiss. When his tongue parted her lips, Amy let out a small moan. Both of them were breathing hard, lost in each other's eyes as they pulled away slowly, neither wanting to break the moment. Leaning down, Luke rested his forehead on Amy's whose breathing was still a little quick. "You were saying?"

I picked up Winter Angel from Amazon after seeing it featured on Sharrice's blog - Reese's Reviews: My Addiction to Fiction - Thanks Sharrice for introducing me to this one.

So what did I think of it?
Being a Novella, it was a quick read. Both characters are dealing with issues from their past. Both have been coerced to vacation in a place neither of them wants to be... the snowy Alps of France.

Sharing something in common, Luke and Amy form a a friendship, and together, help each other overcome their internal struggles and discover that the future does not have to be tainted by the past.

My rating: 3.5 out of 5
