So I have a little dilemma. I read a pretty innocent YA book (Prince of Wolves) and then jumped right into a hardcore steamy read (Winter's Thaw). Is it bad form to review them together? Maybe. But I'm gonna do it anyway.
4 STARS! Winter's Thaw by Mari Carr and Jayne Rylon is awesome, heartwarming, and mega hot. I love the characters, though the cover actors look nothing like my Sienna and Daniel. Sienna is not a wild girl. She's not damaged. She doesn't even have a hard life. But the girl is robotic in her pursuit to marry her lackluster high school sweetheart. Enter hot, easy going, sex God Daniel. These two had crazy good chemistry. I loved Sienna's journey to learn more about herself. Winter's Thaw is book one in a new series, but it's a spin off from the Compass Brothers series. Just to warn you, if you like your sex scenes mostly left to your imagination or if you like it completely vanilla, maybe this isn't for you, or maybe it's exactly for you!
