Special-needs teacher Kayla Johnston writes off any shot at New Year's Eve romance when she's summoned to a fundraising event for her school at the remote estate of a wealthy would-be-donor. But when a massive snowstorm hits and Kayla careens off the road, the sexy stranger who rescues her brings to mind cozy fireplaces and steamy midnight kisses…among other things.

Reclusive entrepreneur Ryan Langford may be missing his own fundraiser, but being marooned in a cabin with Kayla beats ducking a room full of people after his money any day. Too bad she's so irritated with the gazillionaire who ruined her New Year's Eve that he feels like he has to lie about his identity. But when the sparks fly and they fall into each other's arms, Ryan knows he's made a big mistake. Will she be able to trust him once the snow melts and the truth comes out?


My Thoughts

I have been reading a lot of adult contemporary romance lately and been loving it. This book was no exception. It was fun, sexy, heartbreaking at times, and left a smile on my face! This was a pretty short book, but packed quite a bit of punch. I was wrapped up in the story almost from the very beginning and the characters were fantastic and commanded my love and attention. Even being a short story, it was able to pull my emotions right out of me!

Kayla was a fun character. She is still very bitter over her ex, and she is dreading the New Years Eve party she is forced to go to in order to try to get a donation from some rich jerk as she sees it. She ends up going off the road (totally her fault for not paying attention, especially during a snowstorm) and gets picked up by none other than Ryan Langston. She doesn't know it's him though. She decides to go against her normal behavior and give into a one night stand with this sexy stranger. She is very open and honest with him and isn't afraid of what might happen. If only she knew who he really was.

Ryan was awesome!! He is really smart and caring. He wants to make sure that he donates money to good causes, he isn't just selfish with his money or some jerk who throws it around like nothing. That is why he lies to Kayla in the first place, he doesn't want to be judged for his money. He knows he should tell her the truth, but she makes it very clear what she thinks of "guys like Ryan" and he figures they will have their one snowed in night and that will be it. He never expects to actually start to care for her in their evening of just living in the moment.

This was a great romance with a fantastic plot to go along with it. The characters were amazing and the chemistry they have is sizzling. I became invested in both of them almost right away and as things progress, and then get a bit intense, I could feel my heart constricting. I knew that the lie would come out, and I knew how things would go down, but it still made my me ache a little when it did. This book had a lot of really fun moments, then some great sexy scenes, and of course a sweet romance! This is great book for those looking for a good romance with a little bit of steam that also has a good story that you can get lost in.

  1. Oh, it sounds like the pacing and story were as good as with Kelley Vitollo's Luck of the Draw. It was a really short book as well, but I actually liked that length for a change. And a one night stand? Yeah.. That's what happened in LotD, too. I like the sound of Ryan already! Yay!!! Aw, a sweet romance, you say? I definitely need to check this one out:) Thank you so much for this review, Amy! Oh, and since I'm at it, thanks for the giveaway, too. It sounds like a book right up my alley:) Have a wonderful day!

  2. Yes I would!!! bahaha


    I need to start reading some more adult contemporary. Everytime I read one I am so in love with it but then I dig myself back into a YA hole. This one sounds really good! I like that all the characters sounded so good and the romance sounds really sweet!

    1. Haha!! I would too!! I have been trying to make sure to fit in adult contemporaries too since I usually do love them. I love the Ever after and Flirt imprint from Entangled because they are short stories that I can read in one sitting.

  7. I'm gonna be reading one of my first adult contemp romances soon from Rachel Harris I'm kind of excited especially after seeing this! It's not a genre I really ventured into much. This one sounds really good too it's actually rare now to have both romance and plot that are good in one book *sigh*. Maybe it's a YA thing. >.<
