Andres “Con” Conesa is an FBI agent that has spent the last five years deep undercover as the right hand man to the drug lord, Mendoza. He’s done everything in his power to protect Lorena Rubio over his time spent undercover. He met her when she came to try to get her sister out of a life of drugs. Unfortunately that never happened and Mendoza shot and killed Lorena’s sister.
After losing her sister Lorena tried to get the police involved and get Mendoza arrested but Con went behind her back to protect her keeping the police from believing her. If Mendoza believed she was a threat he would’ve easily taken her out just like he had her sister.
Now that Con’s case is coming to a close Mendoza knows there’s a snitch and sends Con to kidnapped Lorena believing she’s the one again talking to the police. When Con and Lorena spend several days locked away together in the Sierra Nevada Mountains they are forced to confront their feelings for one another.
Snowed is a novella length book that really packs a lot into a short read. Tons of suspense with what will happen with the drug lord. A rather nice budding romance between Lorena and Con, she thinks he’s the nice bad guy but really being an FBI agent I was just on the edge of my seat dying for him to tell her the truth so she could fully trust him. And with an action packed, emotional conclusion to bring it all together.
I was a little surprised that the eventual “steamy” action between the characters ended up a more pg-rated or more implied sexual encounter than actually happening, not that it hurt the story though. But for those that don’t like a lot of graphic sex involved this one should be right up your alley.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
