My review of the prequel, Snowfall - ★★★☆☆


Three years ago my father walked away. Away from our MC, all his responsibilities, and me. We haven’t spoken since the day he handed me the keys to the kingdom.

Shoved them down my throat was more like it.

I hate him, and the new family he’s playing house with. He left his entire life behind for a woman he barely knows. But I’m strong, resilient, and don’t need a damn soul to survive.

At least, that’s what I thought...until she walked into my bar.


Someone is watching me. I can feel it. I wake up in the middle of the night freaked out of my mind, paranoid a stranger is there. My skin prickles every time I leave my house, because I know someone is following me.

I’m afraid. Alone. And there’s only one person left to turn to.

The stepbrother I never met. The man my stepfather speaks so highly about, but never sees. He’s the president of a notorious motorcycle club, and exactly the kind of person I need to protect me.

Little did I know, Ky Parish, freakin’ hates my guts.

***Slashes in the Snow is a romantic suspense (emphasis on romance) with dark elements. Reader discretion is advised.

My Review


Kira has a problem. She can feel someone watching her but she can't prove it. It's just a feeling. The sense of someone being in her home without her knowledge. The creepy crawly tingle up her spine. She's scared and she's terrified. This fear emboldens her to go to her new stepbrother for help. A stepbrother who is the president of the Baum Squad MC. A stepbrother who is a decorated war veteran. A stepbrother who should be able to scare off whoever is out there. Too bad her stepbrother hates her.

Ky is a bitter, bitter man. He feels abandoned by his father for a shiny, rich and new family. How could his father leave him? How dare he? Kira represents everything that Ky has lost. But he can't get over how beautiful she is. If helping her means helping himself to her, what could be the problem?

What I loved most about this story was how neither of these people expected what was to come. The author did a wonderful job of building up the tension between them, until it came to a head and it was either sink or swim. I'm so glad these two decided to swim together. Their relationship was pretty dynamic. They both brought a lot of baggage with them, adding to the dimension of what they could be together. It was at once painful and glorious. They each brought out the best from the other. While there was a suspenseful element to the plot, it took a huge back seat to the love story that evolved for these characters.

If you love romance and hot sex with your intrigue, Slashes in the Snow delivers!
