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.

One Snowy Night (Heartbreaker Bay #2)

By Jill Shalvis

 

There are two sides to this story…

Well, that was short and sweet. I’ve wanted Rory’s story since reading the last instalment of the Heartbreaker Bay series, The Trouble with Mistletoe. She’s a tough cookie who ran away from home at 17 and has survived a traumatic experience. Luckily, that traumatic experience also landed her in the path of Willa (heroine from The Trouble with Mistletoe) who gave her a job and a wee bit of hope. Rory’s job put her in a position where she has come face to face with her past.

Max and his dog Carl make a regular trip to South Bark Mutt Shop for Carl to get groomed. Now, Carl’s a Doberman and doesn’t really need a weekly grooming but Max can’t stop. He’s got it BAD for the groomer. Max has known Rory for years but a decision she made rocked his whole world in a bad way. Doesn’t seem to stop him wanting her, though.

It’s Christmas and both Rory and Max have plans to return home to Tahoe to visit family. When Max finds out from Willa that Rory was planning to take the bus, he jumps at the chance to drive her. At first things are a little strained but they eventually talk and get things sorted.

One Snowy Night was a cute little novella that packed a punch. I’m glad I got to see Rory all sorted out and that Max was the one to help with that.

Most of my thoughts and feelings were positive (no surprise there as it is a Jill Shalvis) but I did struggle with a couple of things. I probably didn’t need to see him have his friend (with benefits) wish him a Merry Christmas. Let’s just say she was a wee bit exuberant. Also, I know it’s a novella and there’s a lot to cover in a short story, but I can’t help but roll my eyes a little when the L word gets mentioned. I swear I roll my eyes every bloody time but deep down I do love the insta-lust/love that sometimes happen.

It was all good…I just wished it was longer. I love the Heartbreaker Bay series and I can’t wait for Accidentally On Purpose.
