Fans of Christina Lauren and Maggie Knox will adore this fun and festive romcom featuring a grumpy/sunshine duo who find themselves stuck together over the holidays, where the weather outside is frightful—but inside, things are heating up in this sexy holiday story.

Sorority mom Becca Fairfield is used to guys not taking her seriously. She’s too blond, too quirky, or Just. Too. Much. So she’s ditched dating to focus on her job and a house filled with drama and plenty of tea. Now with the holidays and a major blizzard on her doorstep, Becca has everything she needs to survive the next two weeks on her own. Hot cocoa, plenty of books . . . and the memory of a steamy kiss with a certain sexy, grumposaurus next-door neighbor to keep her warm.

Only Becca’s seriously underestimated this Snowpocalypse. So when the power goes out and Harrison Cooper—football coach, master crank, and the guy who acted mega-awkward after said steamy kiss—offers her shelter, it only makes sense to accept. They’ll just be Blizzard Buddies. Hang out, stay safe, and maybe indulge in a little R-rated cuddling. Becca knows that Harrison isn’t the dating kind, and what happens during the storm lasts only as long as the storm. But are they keeping warm . . . or playing with fire?

Fans of Christina Lauren and Maggie Knox will adore this fun and festive romcom featuring a grumpy/sunshine duo who find themselves stuck together over the holidays, where the weather outside is...

Snowed In for Christmas by Jaqueline Snowe is a joyful debut romcom!
The absolute perfect grumpy/sunshine holiday story.
This book was the cutest rom-com ever I swear!
The chemistry and banter between Becca and Harrison was perfection right from the start.
I also really liked the grumpy/grumpy trope in this book, it made the characters all the more entertaining.
They were the cutest Blizzard Buddies ever and I loved rocking the Snowpocalypse with these two.
It was amusing and kept me interested, an absolute delight.
If you’re looking for a cozy, holiday read with characters you want to root for this is your book.

“Top five.” I smiled at him. “Kissing you is in my top five favorite things.”
His grin stretched across his entire face. “You’re my favorite thing.”

Becca and Harrison. She’s the quirky, talkative sorority mom and he’s the quiet, grumpy football coach that lives next door. They went on a date two years ago but he ghosted her, now they’re stuck in a blizzard together.

I LOVED this book!! It was so cute and cozy! It makes you want to read this in front of the fireplace with a warm blanket and a cup of hot cocoa!

I really loved this book! The snowed in, forced proximity during the holidays is one of my favorite microtropes and this was one of my favs! I loved both Harrison and Becca; they both are lovely in their own ways. Becca is a sweetheart, fun spirited person who doesn't let others opinions of her dictate her life, even if they do get her down sometimes. And Harrison is such a grumpy teddy bear of a guy who's not had it easy dealing with his emotions in life, hindering his ability to properly communicate and truly be happy.
I love, love, love this whole story as Becca and Harrison navigate their awkward roommate status while hunkering down during a blizzard, keeping each other warm in all the best ways. Their awkwardness is enhanced by their history of a good first date followed by his ghosting her a couple years prior. I liked how quickly that was resolved, and that it didn't hinder the on page romance.
Overall, one of my fav holiday books that I can't wait to reread later this year.
Thank you for the ARC!!!

Christmas came for me in July when I got the chance to read an ARC of this book. I love Jaqueline Snowe's new adult sports romances, so I was excited to find out what she would do with a football coach. Spoiler: I loved it!

When I first started reading Snowed in for Christmas, I didn't immediately connect with Becca's character. She was quirky in a way that I couldn't decide whether was annoying or not. That being said, she grew on me. Seeing her through Harrison's eyes helped a lot. Becca had a giant heart. Harrison was a bit of a grump. He was in a stage in life where nothing was really going his way. There was a lot of pressure on him, and he didn't handle it well. The way Becca woke him up was special. They were adorable together.

The snowstorm that forced Becca and Harrison together was quite the secondary character. It may have been 80 degrees when I was reading this book, but I could feel the cold! I was surprised by all the different scenarios that came up due to the storm. There were a lot of great sweet and funny moments that went on with them being stuck inside.

Another group of great characters was Harrison's family. I loved his sister and her family. They were so supportive and nice. I hated his brother and parents. The drama in his family was a great addition to the book. I also liked how his players were involved in the story. Becca's parents were nice, but man did her mom need to get a clue. I also liked Becca's sorority "daughters". There were some sweet moments with them. 

I said sorority daughters and now I feel like I have to talk about a pet peeve of mine... Nicknames. There were a lot of nicknames in this book. Harrison had two that weren't bad. It was one of the sorority girl's nicknames that didn't make sense to me. Her name was Marissa. She was called Marissa a bunch, but then Becca would shorten her name to "Issa". For some reason, I couldn't stand that. It just didn't feel like a natural nickname for Marissa to me. "Mar" would have felt more natural to say. I know that's a personal thing, but I was annoyed every time I came across it. I didn't take away from my rating for this. It's just something that stuck with me after reading.

Overall, this was a fun holiday read. It left me feeling happy.

While this did feel strange reading in the height of summer - this is the perfect book to curl up with on a stormy winter's night. It is sweet and fun, with great main characters and fantastic love developing between the two of them.
There were moments of laughter, and great tension between our two leads. I found this to be a great read and look forward to coming back to it when the Christmas season approaches!
