New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis returns to Heartbreaker Bay with a fun and festive holiday novella!
It’s Christmas Eve and Rory Andrews is desperate to get home to the family she hasn’t seen in years. Problem is, her only ride to Lake Tahoe comes in the form of the annoyingly handsome Max Stranton, and his big, goofy, lovable dog Carl.
Hours stuck in a truck with the dead sexy Max sounds like a fate worse than death (not), but Rory’s out of options. She’s had a crush on Max since high school and she knows he’s attracted to her, too. But they have history… and Max is the only one who knows why it went south.
They’ve done a good job of ignoring their chemistry so far, but a long road trip in a massive blizzard might be just what they need to face their past… and one steamy, snowy night is all it takes to bring Max and Rory together at last.
I would have loved One Snowy Night more if it was a full-length novel. I really like Max and Rory. I wish they had a longer story. But over all One Snowy Night was a sweet, fun and sexy read to get me in the holiday mood.
So far the couples in the Heartbreaker series has had rocky histories with each other and Rory and Max are no different. These two went to high school together where he was the popular jock and she was the quiet wallflower. Neither knew the other has feelings for each other back then, but the sexual tension between them now is hard to overlook. If Max and Rory can get over something from their past, then it will be all kisses under the mistletoe for them on a very snowy road trip on Christmas Eve.
Fans of Jill Shalvis will enjoy this novella. I highly recommend you at least read The Trouble with Mistletoe to a get a longer build up to Max and Rory’s romance. Plus both reads are great for this festive time of the year. Nothing warms you better than a Jill Shalvis romance.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
