Snowed In (Hope Falls #7) by Melanie Shawn

Snowed In (A Hope Falls Novel Book 7)


The Free-Spirit… 
Nikki Maguire does what she wants, says what she wants, and lives by her own set of rules. She is an intoxicating combination of beauty, sex-appeal and sharp wit that men find irresistible. Unfortunately for them, none have ever come close to holding Nikki’s attention, and settling down is not even on her radar. 

The Politician… 
Sexy Senator Michael Gowan lives under a microscope. As a man of power and influence, he always has to do and say the right thing. Every move he makes is heavily scrutinized. After being named one of People’s 100 Most Beautiful People and landing on countless Most Eligible Bachelor lists, the spotlight on his personal life has never been more intense. But Mike has no interest in love...he doesn’t even believe it exists. 

The Stormy Night… 
Grounded by a snowstorm, they share an anonymous night of passion and connection, both finding what their souls have been missing. But in the light of day, will the illicit high-stakes world of politics cause Nikki to deny her feelings or can Mike convince her that the only place she belongs is with him? 

When the world is against them, will their unlikely love endure?


When I first saw Snowed In I was not very excited to start reading it. I am not a big fan of rich or famous people in books and politician didn't seem much better. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this story.

Nikki is a flight attendant taking classes on the side to try and get her degree. She has never really been in love or had a relationship where she has really cared about the other person. It is easier to just have light relationships, to not really care too much. That is safer, she can't get hurt.

Mike is a politician. When he first sees Nikki in a hotel bar he is intrigued, but he doesn't want to bother her. He is not really the one night stand with random girls kind of person. When Nikki looks like she could use an assist getting rid of a guy who just won't take no for an answer, he steps in. What he didn't count on was feeling something more for Nikki. They stay up late talking and get closer than either of them ever expected.

Nikki kind of freaks out a bit at times in this book. She doesn't really know what to do with how much she is feeling for Mike, with how out of control it leaves her. There is definitely a connection there, and she does pursue it, but it was fun watching her try and figure it out. From the first Mike cannot stop thinking about Nikki either. He is just as smitten with her as she is with him.

There are some people who don't want the two of them together, but Nikki is a tough girl. She doesn't believe all the fake nonsense people try and feed her. That is why I didn't like the one time she does freak out and go a little crazy. It was like you are so strong and you said you were so confident in the relationship until something obviously not true comes along and you try and bail? It just didn't make that much sense. Luckily it wasn't that big of an issue, but still it didn't fit with the rest of the story and her character thus far.

Mike has a lot to deal with that comes out while he is dating Nikki. He has people he trusts that he finds out he can no longer. He has people who he needs to figure out how to deal with. His life is a bit more complicated than normal, but Nikki, Nikki is his priority. He was really great with her, really great trying to get everything in order while trying to have it not effect her. He was really great. I did really enjoy this story with the exception of the slight out of character response from Nikki that one time. Really a much better read than I thought it would be. Mike is not the stuffy rich guy that I don't like. He is just a normal guy who wants a normal life and is just really great. Another wonderful read by this author.
