Rory Andrews and Max Stranton have known each other for years and both live in the San Francisco area. Their families still live near Lake Tahoe, about four hours away, and Rory needs a ride home on Christmas Eve so Max agrees to give her a ride. The story consists of their adventures and conversations on a very snowy drive and, of course, spending that much time in a truck together is bound to generate sparks of chemistry and reveal their true feelings toward each other.
I have to be honest and state that I feel this novella is just okay. The only element of Christmas in the story is that it takes place on Christmas Eve and part of Christmas Day and I guess a small part of me hoped that there would be more of a magical Christmas feeling. Of course, the story mostly focuses on the romance between Rory and Max which is good too but I hoped for a little more Christmas magic. I also feel the story was a bit rushed. I feel like the story was just getting somewhere and then it was over. I know it's a novella and supposed to be short but it would've been nice to have a little more to the story. I noticed some editing errors and the novella finishes at 58% while the remainder is excerpts from the Heartbreaker Bay novels.
Sadly, I wasn't that thrilled with this novella but I still really like Jill Shalvis and her novels so my thoughts on this novella won't prevent me from reading her other novels. One Snowy Night is a cute and light romance with a wintry feel but doesn't have much Christmas magic in it.
If you have read The Trouble With Mistletoe, you’re familiar with Rory (Willa’s employee) and Max (one of Willa’s friends). But if you haven’t, it’s fine. You’ll still be able to get the drift of the book.
Rory is stuck with Max and Carl (Max’s goof dog) when Max volunteered to give her a ride to her family’s home, on Christmas Eve. Whom she hasn’t seen in years. What looked like a night of driving turned to revelations they both didn’t expect they needed to hear. Will they act on their combustible chemistry now or will they let it fade away without giving it a try?
I have yet to read a book by Jill Shalvis that wouldn’t make me smile like a fool. Because One Snowy Night, though very short than I would’ve liked, was very cute and romantic enemies-to-lovers novella. One night basically changed everything and that’s no wonder considering they’re pretty stuck on the road for long hours. And though it may seem too fast-paced, it worked because again, snowy night and all the road inconvenience. But it was really lovely because of Rory’s sass and stubbornness, Max’s resistance with his feelings for Rory (because of high school past) and of course, there’s Carl. I liked that the story was neatly wrapped in a way that their past was revealed and both sides have forgiven each other for what they both did. And that actually paved way for both characters to have their chance at love.
Both characters sounded real, believable even when Rory’s a bit scared at first because she had a rough beginning. Both of them were funny and cheesy at times but it added to the sweetness of the book. Can I just say I almost melted at Max’s words? Gahhhh it’s so simple but very heartfelt with a dash of adorable. I loved him a lot! I mean, both of them! I liked that they got their HEA (even with Rory’s family whom she believed hated her) though it would be better if they have a novel-length book of their own.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book for all romance readers who want a quick and drama-free read with all the cuteness.
I volunteered to review an advanced copy.
Max had lost everything when Rory handed a tape into their high school before she quit town, and despite the fact that he had a great job and life, he still harbored some resentment to Rory…that, and a heck of a lot of sexual frustration. But when Willa talked Max in to giving Rory a ride home (not that it took much), he wasn't expecting to have his whole opinion of her change.
One Snowy Night is an amazing story! It gives me that A Christmas Carol feeling that, where everyone gets a chance at a fresh start. I LOVE Rory's character, I loved her when she was in The Trouble with Mistletoe, but she really comes into her own in this novella. Max has also shown a side we haven't seen before; a softer side, that makes him seem a little more softer…and more delicious.
The plot and writing in this book is truly superb! And I have to say that I have really fallen in love with this Jill Shalvis series! And One Snowy Night is my favorite one so far! And I hope it never ends!!
