This was the perfect holiday read for a quick afternoon break. I loved reading of these two as while they came from different challenges at the end of the day they have so much in common. The push and pull between these two made the snow melt off my pages.
Snow in Love by Libby Kay
This is the first book I’ve read by the author.
Connor is working with a friend. He then realizes that his friend already plans on training someone else. The only problem is that the other person is a spoiled brat. The quote I chose for Connor is: “And you didn’t want to upset the golden apple cart, right? I’ll go take a break. See you both later.”
Sienna was promised a vacay, but her parents have other plans. She’s upset with it and gets even more upset when she learns that she’s not going to be alone. The quote I chose for Sienna is: “You promised me a vacation. You promised if I won gold at nationals, I could have the holidays to rest. I need the downtime.”
Highly recommended for Contemporary Romance lovers.
Snow in Love was an enchanting read. It is a story about two paralympic skiers who find themselves during training and by finding themselves are able to find love. I enjoyed being transported to Aspen to revel in the glistening snow while reading the story of two mismatched people find themselves and one another despite the pain of their past and present.
This author has really wowed me with her contemporary romances before but this one definitely takes the cake. The story really pulled my heart strings and took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. I smiled, I cried, I even laughed, but the characters and the plot were just simply amazing. One thing I really love about this author is she really has a way of writing characters that pull you straight into the story and you feel every emotion that they do. This book really had it all from romance, emotions, amazing chemistry I just simply couldn’t put it down.
Snow In Love
This is the sweetest love story. It is about two paralympic athletes who are training by themselves at a ski lodge that is closed for renovations. They are the only two there with their trainer over Christmas. Both have reputations that proceed them, however, there is more to both of them than their reputations.
I loved watching the two of them fall in love. I loved Sienna’s character and could definitely understand how she was feeling, especially about how she didn’t know what was going to happen with the rest of her life – just knowing that she was ready to stop being micromanaged. I truly enjoyed Connor’s character. I also loved how he was ready to be more than a party boy and a womanizer. I loved their banter and they were just so much fun.
This was a very fast, easy read and I definitely loved reading about it snuggled up under the blanket by the tree. Its the perfect book if you are looking for something to read during the time between Christmas and New Year’s
This was a very cute, easy, holiday read! The characters are wonderful. The story pulled readers in from start to finish. Its easy to feel why this was a keep reading book! While this book could have been placed in any part of the year, Christmas just made it that much sweeter!
Snow in Love
What a cute Christmas romance. Sienna and Connor were a good fit from the beginning in my opinion. They were just what the other needs to be happy.
Sienna made me sad, especially in the beginning of the book. She loves skiing and competing but it’s all she has known her entire life. She has no idea what else is out there waiting for her.
Connor came across as the typical over confident jock who found his worth in how much money and how many women he has. But then I saw past that wall and the real Connor and might have fallen a bit.
This grinch enjoyed this cute Christmas romance.
Snow in Love is a sweet holiday romance. Gave me hallmark movie vibes. The author wrote a sweet romance between two characters that are broken in their own way. Despite everything influencing their lives these two found themselves within one another. And the way the author perceived that was enjoyable.
Sienna and Conner are polar opposites. She’s lived and trained her whole life skiing with her disability. Conner is new to the disability, after a tragic accident in motocross changed his life. Both missing the same part of their leg, these two are training to compete in the winter paralympics in skiing. Which lands them at the same Aspen resort over the Christmas holiday. Sienna, with a love of tradition and a disappointment of having to spend the holiday alone, is blown away by what Connor does to make her Christmas special.
Unfortunately life happens so nothing has a happy ending, or does it?
This is a book you cozy up with. Under a blanket with a cup of cocoa or tea and enjoy. I’m a sucker for holiday romances and this one definitely pulls at the heartstrings, but it’s so worth it!
I just loved this story. Sienna and Conner are not the couple you think would work but the chemistry is off the charts. She is the sheltered golden girl and he is the typical bad boy. I just couldn’t help but love these two and route for them to make it. The ski lodge setting was just perfect too!
As the title suggests, Snow in Love is a fun festive romance. Two paralympic skiers are set to spend the holiday season training together. Their coach hopes they will focus on skiing and not get too distracted by each other. That goes about as well as you’d expect…
What I really like about this book is how it explores the differences in experience of two people with seemingly similar disabilities. Both have a lower limb impairment, but Connor’s is the result of a fairly recent accident which ended his motocross career whereas Sienna was born with a partial leg. We see not only how this affects their approaches and outlooks, but also the assumptions they make about each other.
This is a great book for fans of sports romance, particularly if you like winter sports or parasports. The otherwise unoccupied ski resort makes a great setting for a wintery romance! This book gets five stars from me. Definitely a good comfort read!
Connor Shoemaker was a motocross bad boy until an accident took his leg. He is now a Paralympic hopeful in skiing. Sienna Markum is a Paralympic Golden Girl in skiing. They have both booked Karl one of the best and hardest coaches around for the Christmas holidays. What could possibly go wrong sharing a closed ski resort while training?
This was such a sweet romantic read! I really enjoyed this authors writing style and how she describes the scenery. I love both Sienna and Connor’s characters and how much they have overcome. They are two totally different people and come from completely different worlds. Connor is not what I expected at all in his character, and I love it! There is one character that I was not a fan of and am glad things worked out the way they did. There is some awesome character building as well. I absolutely love the ending to this book and loved that there is an epilogue!
An enjoyable and engaging contemporary romance with a feel good festive feeling. Sienna Markum, a Paralympic skiers favourite time of year is Christmas, as she loves all the traditions, but most of all the time she can spend with her family. Sienna is training for the Paralympics in the hopes of winning Alpine gold, so is looking forward to a much needed break from training over the holiday period. Meanwhile, Connor Shoemaker, the bad boy of skiing, plans on continuing with his training for the Paralympics, and so has no plans for Christmas. Ever since a motocross accident took one of his legs, Connor had also lost his confidence. When the pair meet at training, Sienna is not happy as she was told that her training would be private, however, she soon starts to enjoy being with her new training partner.
When Sienna’s Christmas plans fall through it’s Connor who comes to her rescue, however, she has to decide if she’s willing to balance her training with a relationship. Connor, meanwhile, is hoping to regain his confidence on and off the slopes, and to also have a chance at love with Sienna. This was a lovely, heartwarming romance with great characters and a magical snowy setting, which kept me happily turning the pages. I loved the fact that the two main characters were Paralympic’s, and dealing with disability issues, as this is unusual in romances. The couple had amazing chemistry and I was hoping they would get their HEA, especially for Christmas!
Sienna is a competitive skier in the Paralympics. She has grown up knowing that one day all of her hard work will pay off in the form of a gold medal. When her controlling mother sets up extra training over the Christmas break to prepare for the upcoming games, she is anything but excited. Connor is known in the motocross community as a bad boy, until he has an accident that takes part of one of his legs. In order to reach that rush of adrenaline from his motocross days, he becomes a skier. Both are thrown together to train over Christmas break in a ski resort that is empty because it is being renovated. It’s just them, the slopes and their trainer. Will they be able to find a balance between love and competition? Or will one have to come before the other?
This was a quick, fun, Christmas read! I found the characters to be believable and likable. While I am not a skier, I found the story to not be too bogged down with skiing lingo. I was able to follow along with what the characters were talking about and enjoyed the emotional storyline. Sienna is used to her mother making decisions for her and it takes love to kind of wake her up to the fact that she can choose, too. I appreciated that Connor doesn’t make her choose him or skiing. He sees her for what she is and wants what is best for her, even if he isn’t part of it.
5 Stars!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Wonderful, feel good contemporary romance just in time for the holiday season! I loved every bit of this story of two contending Paralympic athletes in skiing that are hot both on and off the slopes.
Sienna is definitely the ultra focused Paralympic skier who knows nothing outside of focusing on the Winter Games Gold. Everything around her is controlled by her mother down to every detail. When Conner comes aboard in training with Sienna and her coach for his Paralympic dreams..Sienna starts to question what does she truly want and does she want everything in her life to be controlled. As both Sienna and Conner peel the layers back and get to truly know each other on a deeper level than skiing….love blossoms and some demons are shed and let go….will Sienna and Conner go for gold in both love and skiing?
This story really pulled my heart strings…it made me smile and melted my heart on both characters back stories….this is truly a wonderful contemporary romance that just is filled with love, hope, joy and some Christmas magic….Happy Reading!!!
Sienna and Connor are both competitors for the Paralympics, but one wants a break, and the other wants to train. When they meet, more than training meets the eyes. You’ve got sports, love, Christmas spirits, and finding oneself again. It’s such a cute romantic story to cuddle and have tea! Please take a look and you won’t regret it! 🙂
Ski straight into love with a cup of cocoa, Snow in Love is the perfect sweet and steamy book to get you in the Christmas spirit. Sienna and Connor are polar opposites, Sienna is the seemingly innocent Golden Girl while Connor has been known to be a player. You know what they say, opposites attract each other. However, Sienna is on a strict schedule to keep her on track to bring home a gold medal in the paralympics. Will Connor be able to convince Sienna to live and love a little? Will Sienna be able to break free from her mother’s strict and aggressive demeanor to give love a chance? Find out by picking up a copy of Snow in Love!
This is a quick, Christmas romance! It’s so good and the characters are easy to love. It’s a look into the professional athlete world and it gives a taste of what it’s like to sacrifice everything to be the best. I love that Sienna & Connor compliment each other in a realistic way. This book made me want to take a winter getaway to the slopes!
Snow in Love is a cute winter romance story. Grab a blanket and a cup of coffee or cocoa, and curl up on the couch for a quick read. The progression of the story is predictable, but I still really enjoyed it. Connor and Sienna are professional skiers who meet at a private training at an abandoned lodge. I love the little details the author put into the story. Each character is well written with a back story and family connection. Sienna is at a turning point in her career and needs time to discover what she wants for herself and stop living for her mom. Connor is struggling to find himself again after an accident that claimed half of his leg. I love his brother Colby and how helpful he was, while still being a typical college boy. I look forward to reading more by this author. She has a way with words and the book is short but sweet.

Connor is no longer the playboy motorcross rider of his past…he is now a skier in the Paralympics. After an accident took part of his leg, he has needed to find a new way to fulfill the need for speed that lives within him. He seems to be almost as good on the slopes as he was on the track. So, when his coach plans a training session around Christmas, Connor shows up ready to work.
Sienna is the “golden girl” of the slopes…and she is only missing a gold medal at the Paralympics. When her mother cancels her vacation in lieu of another training, Sienna is wondering if there is ever going to be more to life that her overbearing mother/manager. She is less than thrilled to have to spend her favorite holiday training…and even less thrilled when she sees who she has to spend it with.
These two, on paper, are as different as can be. But, when the begin to really get to know each other, they find out that they just might be after the same thing. However, when Sienna’s mother steps in and once again makes decisions for Sienna, will Sienna ever be allowed to be happy? Will Sienna be able to take her future into her own hands finally?
This was a good story about a woman wanting more for her future and a man who’s past shadows people’s thoughts about. Each of the characters is good for the other and helps them grow in their own ways. I enjoyed their banter and Connor’s ways of making Sienna feel special. Overall, a good book that I was able to devour in one sitting.
Classic book of two athletes who go away to train. At first they can’t stand each other an then realize they really don’t know each other. Once they take the time an get to know each other, past the politics, rumors and glamour they realize they really do like each other. Sienna an Connor are a match made in heaven
I really enjoyed this romance. Its a perfect Christmas read. It is an enemies to lovers romance however I wouldn’t class Sienna and Connor as enemies. Both of them have had a lot to deal with in their lives so it’s made them act and respond the way they do.
Both are Paralympics athletes but they came to it from different ways. Sienna was born that way and over the years she has pushed herself to be the best paralympic skier around. She is a very focused and driver woman who won’t let anyone stand in her way.
Conner on the other hand lost his leg due to an accident, so he has the additional trauma of learning to live with this disability. Conner also used to be a bad boy, partying hard and different women every night. But that all changed after his accident. He is now trying to rebuild his life and career.
Neither Conner or Sienna are looking for romance or distraction but that is what the find when they are on deserted ski resort with just their coach.
As the couple get to know each other you can feel the push and pull as they feel each other out and push each others buttons.
The question is can they drop the images they have of each other in their minds to see the real person in front of them or will their pasts hold them back from taking a risk?
A couple things I love about this book. Firstly, the title is adorable. The cover is sweet too. It is a shorter story but told perfectly and smoothly. My attention was drawn in and held due to the nature of the wonderful story.
Secondly I love the storyline..skiing competitively. I don’t run across this subject too often. While there isn’t a ton of skiing in here it has some of the drama that goes along with being in a competitive sport.
Lastly the characters are wildly different from each other. They both are hot to trot and have large reputations. She is the Golden Child of skiing and he is the former bad boy of motocross. I felt there would be a lot of time spent on why they are in the Paralympics but it was more about the feelings these two felt and their lovely romance.
Overall it is a wonderful holiday and winter themed story. It is a lighthearted fun book to read on a cold day.
Snow In Love is a great Christmas romance novella that I really enjoyed reading. It was my first time reading this author so was unsure what to expect from this book. I’m glad I took a chance on it as it’s definitely worth a read.
Although short at 100 pages, the author manages to pack a great deal of content in to make it an enjoyable read that keeps you engaged from beginning to end.
I really enjoyed reading about the 2 main characters Sienna and Connor. Being the golden princess of paralympic skiing you’d expect her to be a bit of a dive, but she’s far from it. Connor was the playboy motocross rider before his accident and is now a totally changed man in many ways and I really engaged with his character as he tried to make himself a better person.
I have to admit that I really wanted to slap Sienna’s mother and give her father a good shake. My heart broke for how Sienna was treated.
This is a great Christmas romance and I’d definitely recommend giving it a try.
This was just the holiday romance that I needed to read to really get in the spirit of Christmas! I love the fact that this was a book about characters that are in the Paralympics and that it really gave insight into their preparations/thoughts about the competition. I have not read a book that highlighted characters that both are overcoming body differences compared to others. I found myself devouring this book on my breaks and lunches when I was at work. I even found myself wondering what would happen next in the story and daydreaming of different scenarios. I cannot wait to read more books by this wonderful author!!
Snow in Love is a delightful holiday romance. This is a quick read but a well-thought-out story. Sienna and Connor are one of those couples you want to see succeed. The two meet on the slopes, but immediately I wanted it to develop into more. The characters contrast each other nicely. I always enjoy a holiday romance story, and this did not disappoint. I recommend this book if you need a quick getaway and to get in the holiday spirit. I look forward to checking out more from this author in the future.
A fun holiday read that I finished in a day! The main characters are both athletes training for the Paralympics at a ski lodge that is closed for a remodel. Connor had to have a partial amputation after a motocross accident and Sienna was born with only a partial leg. They are thrown together to train over Christmas before the big race. Karl is coaching them on the slopes and they get to know each other in the lodge where they open up to each other and learn that they are more than their reputations. The lodge sounds like an amazing place to escape, spend a holiday, and cozy up around the fire. The characters are both struggling to find themselves and are not sure if they can trust each other but there are sparks from the first meeting. I will be looking at more from the author because I loved the quick read!
This was such a lovely Christmassy read and one that I really enjoyed. It was really well written and engaging. I loved the characters Sienna and Connor, they both had their own issues to overcome but also something in common that brought them together. They really did have a genuine connection. I really did feel this genuine connection with the characters and I really came to care about them – I genuinely was rooting for them the whole way through. I felt for Sienna at times with her overpowering Mother.
Overall this was a lovely story and one that I would highly recommend. I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future.
A perfect short story for Christmas time. I love Conner and Sienna together! And I love that this book is centered around the Paralympics. This book has the perfect amount of drama, romance and sweet and funny moments. Sienna’s mom is super annoying and really got to me, I was glad to see Sienna stand up for what she wanted. Both Sienna and Conner didn’t let their missing limbs stop them from going after what they wanted and living their lives to the fullest. Conner had to work at accepting his new life as an amputee, Sienna was born that way, and I think the way she embraced it helped Conner to not be as self conscious about his.
