What is it about an ice ueen that makes a story so delectable I mean truly I have a thing for this character trope Judge away I do not care I am always intrigued by that main character with that frosty alpha bitch exterior When you think about it or at least when I do some of my most beloved characters and books in the lesbian romance genre have that ice ueen that will thaw only for her one true love theme Why am I rambling on because Lee Winter writes ice ueens like nobody else Elena Bartell is a downright shark this media mogul has a reputation taking no prisoners You are either excellent or you are gone She owns newspapers all over the world waiting for them to go almost belly up then she swoops in and either turns them around or liuidates everything She does this all the while running a renowned fashion magazine Elena comes off as she has tolerance for no one even her husband she keeps at arm s length Everything is business and she keeps her mask firmly in place This woman will absolutely eviscerate anyone who gets in her way That is until she is pestered by her newly acuired night beat reporterMaddie Grey hates New York City She begrudgingly admits it to everyone except for her Aussie friends and family back home in Sydney Maddie won the green card lottery and had her dream opportunity to move to NYC and try her hand at becoming a crime reporter Now living the dream she hates her only opportunity to be a journalist is working the night beat writing obits and rifling around for stories that someone on the day shift will get to flesh out Then Elena Bartell shows up and Maddie is almost certain she s getting a pink slip especially when they get off on the wrong foot almost immediately From the get go these two characters challenge each other Maddie fires back at Elena like no one else would dare and it almost endears the woman to her No one ever dares talks back to her I mean this woman is dismissive and vicious almost all the time The two protagonists clash in so many ways but also have so much in common In a way they see the loneliness in the other Elena is struck by Maddie wanting nothing from her but a friendship of sorts while Maddie the ever curious journalist finds Elena downright fascinating She wants to scrape the boss s exterior mask to find out the heart of the cold and ruthless businesswoman Winter keeps the tension taunt for the majority of the book A long long slow captivating burn The tension in this one is like pulling a rubber band till it will stretch no Angst galore and it to me it absolutely works If you loved the Red Files I promise you this is right up your alley Everything about this book is done right The writing is crisp the characters well they were amazing and the dialogue could go from biting to amusing at the flip of a page A damn fine read Who s your favorite ice ueen

The Brutal Truth

Lee Winter ó 4 characters The Brutal Truth characters ☆ 104 Australian crime reporter Maddie Grey is out of her depth in New York miserable and secretly drawn to her powerful twice married media mogul boss Elena Bartell who eats failing. This book made me feel good I still have a smile on my face as I type this review Every time I read a Lee Winter book I say to myself this is a damn good book I just love the way Winter writes it just clicks for me I m happy to say this book was right on par with all her others it was a great read Maddie Grey has moved to New York City from down under to fulfill her dream of being a reporter Things are not going well She is not fitting in and works the graveyard shift for obits and crime When the small newspaper she works for is taken over by media mogul and notorious shark Elena Bartell Maddie knows her days might be numbered Will Maddie be able to survive in her job And what happens when she notices a few cracks in the shark s outer layerLike many romance readers out there I love a good ice ueen storyline This book has a Devil Wears Prada feel I m not sure if this was based on a fanfic but rest assured either way this does not have a recycled feel what so ever I loved the storyline and was hooked on page oneWinter always writes likeable main characters A lot of time they are opposites but they still just fit perfectly Elena was as ice cold as Maddie was warm They just complemented each other so well and made a possible relationship that much believable This is a very slow burn romance I prefer slower moving romances but at times I wanted to give this a kick start But the way the characters were written and what was going on in their lives the story would not have been believable if it was sped up It was just me being impatient I enjoyed how the chemistry slowly started to build And eventually I was rewarded with a very steamy sex scene for my wait Only small complaint of the whole book I could have used just a little relationship time I loved these two together and just wanted a hint This is an easy book to recommend to romance fans If you are a DWP fan a Winter fan or are looking for a feel good romance don t pass this one up Winter is very high up on my authors to automatically read list and she absolutely deserves it I honestly can t wait to get my hands on another Winter book An ARC was given to me by YLVA for a honest review

Lee Winter ó 4 characters The Brutal Truth characters ☆ 104 Newspapers for breakfast As work takes them to Australia Maddie is goaded into a brief seemingly harmless bet with her enigmatic boss where they have to tell the complete truth. Something about this didn t click for me Yes it s competently written and there are good parts to it but the rhythm was all over the place There s a getting to know you phase estrangement a move across the world estrangement a severe estrangement a platonic wooing estrangement again one sided romantic interest conveyed another move across the world then both romantically interested but separated another move across the world and finally a coming together with very little time of the couple being in a relationship romantically The two leads were okay and of the two I preferred Maddie but I found the most interesting characters to actually be the supporting cast especially the fashionista mother and daughter duo Felicity was a close runner up Maddie and Elena weren t bad characters by any means but I didn t buy the dual chemistry Yes I got Maddie s side of it but Elena wasn t even ice ueen so much as stiff I was really looking forward to this read but found myself disappointed because the romance never really got off the ground I think all of that estrangement and pretending not to care just threw the romance and chemistry for me It took forever for Elena to 1 show blatant interest or 2 for Maddie to pick up on Elena s subtle interest which in truth she couldn t really help because it wasn t written either Elena s romantic interest in Maddie occurred off the page out of sight from the reader And then the acknowledged mutual romantic interest didn t last long because the book ended shortly after they get togetherThat said the book is entertaining enough Lee Winter has a journalism background and I think like her other books it helped keep the story line accurate and interesting I particularly liked all of the scenes with Natalii The sexual harassment sub plot was a topical element that happens to coincide with the metoo movement going on right now Thankfully it s a slow burn instead of an insta love romance though it veered too far on the slow burn side I think And in general there s a feel good tone to the book For whatever drama that occurs nothing is too dark or heavyCompetency wise I put this book in the 4 star range and do think others may it enjoy it than I did But for me liking it wise I give it a 35
