One Snowy Night Book Review

I was glad to get this holiday book to enjoy with the cold weather starting and the holidays upon us.  One Snowy Night: A Heartbreaker Bay Christmas Novella by Jill Shalvis was the next book in my pile and I didn't realize that it was just a little fast read but I super enjoyed getting the chance to meet these characters that were mentioned in other books but get to know so much more in this book.

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.

Rory works for Willa taking care of animals and she is going home for Christmas for the first time in years.  She promised her step father that she would pick up her mom's present for him and bring it.  Her boss, Willa, arranges for Max to drive her home since he is going to the same place.  No one knew their past but they actually went to high school together and have a long and complicated history together.  Rory doesn't feel great about getting a ride with Max but she loves his dog Carl so she knows that she is going to be the best out of a bad situation because she needs to get home and doesn't have the money to get there any other way.  They are drawn to each other as soon as they see each other and then they have to get into the car and spend hours on the road driving.  They work out some of their past issues and move forward with their issues although the weather doesn't have them moving forward for long.  There are accidents, road closures and more.  They eventually need to take a detour to get a hotel for the night.  You have to pick up the book to see if they get over themselves and their past to move forward and if they ever make it home for Christmas.  It was a great story and a great addition to the series.  I can't wait to read another in this series!!
