STORY: 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.
REVIEW: This is book 2.5 in Heartbreaker Bay Series and once more I find myself enjoying Jill Shalvis’s book less because I’ve not read the other two books first. I have no doubt that I’d have enjoyed it much more if I had a chance to connect with the people populating this series.
Despite fully connecting with an already established community and family dynamics, I thought the story well written and fast paced, but most enjoyable were the characters of Max and Rory. They entertained me from start to finish and on that merit alone, I recommend it.
This a perfect read for all of you that are stuck this weekend in your “huts” as the snow hits our Midwest. Grab a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy!
