Kissing Snowflakes by Abby Sher
I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Samantha Levy (or as she calls herself, Levy) is being dragged on her dad's honeymoon with his new young wife Kathy and her brother Jeremy. They're all going up the Bishop Inn in the mountains to ski. Sam is none to thrilled about the idea to bring along herself and her brother on her dad's honeymoon during her Winter Break of all times. She is also not so fond of young cherry Kathy who keeps trying to be all "buddy buddy" with her.
But before Sam left home her best friend Phoebe and herself decided that while she was gone she would find a boy to kiss and just have fun with. Seeing as how the only kiss that Sam has ever had was in a school play and after that play she found the boy that she kissed in the corner with a new sexy exchange student.
While taking a beginners skiing class Sam meets Drew. Drew is a very attractive ski teacher who claims to have been at the Olympic try outs. All the girls are giggling and flirting with him. And when he starts focusing on Sam she is utterly shocked. But it turns out all Drew wants is to get into Sam's pants and she is definitely not ready for that. Meanwhile, back at the Bishop Inn there is an incredibly annoying guy named Eric that helps run the place with his father. At first he drives Sam crazy with him butting into her life all the time, like when she's being a brat to Kathy. And telling her that she's not acting the way that she should be. But in the long run, is Eric all that bad? After Sam has a minor ski accident she's about to find out what Eric is really like. And she just might like it.
I bought this book a while ago because I'd heard about it. This book was pretty good, it didn't disappoint me. I liked Sam's character and I how Drew was such an ass. Well I didn't like how he was an ass to Sam, hopefully you know what I mean. I especially liked Eric though, I could tell from the beginning that he was a nice guy. Sam just wasn't about to realize that any time soon because she was so caught up with Drew. This was a really fast read for me, but good just the same. It's definitely a good Summer read even though it's set during the Winter. It's light and quick and overall a sweet book. The only thing I didn't like about it was some of the things Sam said when she was talking to Drew. I don't know, some it was just strange. But it was still a good book.
