Title:  One Snowy Night
Series:  Heartbreaker Bay #2.5
Author:  Jill Shalvis
Release Date:  November 8, 2016

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.



“You were on the phone,” Rory said.
                  “I was.”
                  She looked at him, clearly waiting for more, her pretty eyes not giving much away. She was so petite a good wind could blow her away, but that analogy implied she was fragile.
                  Rory was anything but fragile, and in fact her inner strength was even more attractive to him than her beauty.
                  “It was Willa,” he said, willing to give her that. Besides she was more curious than a cat and he wanted to appease that curiosity and fast, before she figured out the rest.
                  She looked at him, surprised. “What did she want?”
                  Shit. On top of curious as a cat, she was like Carl with a damn bone. He twisted around to buckle Carl back in and then put on his own seatbelt. He turned the engine over and cranked up the radio.
                  Rory turned it off. “She already made you drive me, so what now?”
                  Rory turned in her seat to fully face him. “Was she checking to see if we’d killed each other?”
                  He smiled at that, a thought that had been so close to his own, but she narrowed her eyes, not amused. “What did she want, Max?”
                  He went to put the truck in gear but she leaned into him to turn off the engine and grab his keys. Her breast brushed against his arm, giving him another zap of awareness.
                  “Come on,” she said. “This is Willa we’re talking about. I love her, but she’s incapable of not sticking her nose in where it doesn’t belong, especially when it comes to me. What did she want?”
                  Shit, it’d been two minutes and he was already regretting his “gentle” promise. He looked her right in the eyes. “Nothing.”
                  Her eyes went to little slits. “Liar.” She opened her door, revealing that the slush had turned to snow, as she swung his keys from her fingers. “Tell me or say goodbye to your keys.”
                  “That’ll strand you too,” he pointed out.
                  She raised her eyebrows and he got the message. She didn’t care.
                  “Fine,” he said. “She told me to be nice to you. Actually, she said gentle.” While she gaped at that, he snagged the keys from her lax fingers, feeling like an asshole when he leaned into her, reaching past her to slam her door shut.
                  She didn’t shrink back, which meant that their bodies once again bumped up against each other, and it was like they knew what his brain couldn’t seem to comprehend—he wanted her. He was a little thrown by that, and the now familiar zing of electricity, only slightly mollified to realize by the way her breath hitched that she felt it too.
                  “If you even try to be gentle,” she said, “I’ll get out and walk.”

As I've said before I always like reading Jill Shalvis' books when I'm looking for something light with tons of romance.  One Snowy Night is the story of Rory and Max.  If you've read the other books in the series (see below) you'll definitely remember Rory.  Years earlier Rory and Max had lived in the same town and gone to school together.  Now they are both living in San Francisco and running with the same crowd.  But they have a past.  Rory had always had a crush on Max and he'd always been sweet to her.  Then Rory was bullied.  When she turned the bully in she ended up hurting Max.  She never knew the extent of the damage until this book.  They are trapped together for hours in a car and then a motel and all comes out.  

One Snowy Night is a novella so it's a short, quick read, but Jill Shalvis doesn't let us miss anything.  The characters are well developed and the plot is not rushed.   It's just a shorter story line than some of the other books.   

Max turned out to be a really sweet guy.  He's understanding and he's strong.  And he cares.  He's a genuine nice guy.  Rory is young, but she's had to grow up a lot on her own.  She's had to be strong and she is.  She knows how to take care of herself and she doesn't trust easily.  Together they're a cute couple.

One Snowy Night was a fun book to read and would be even more fun reading while leading up to the Christmas season.  And since it costs less than a dollar it's worth every penny.  I give One Snowy Night FOUR STARS!
