The Bear Mountain days are cold, but the nights are steamy….
Allie Fairchild made a mistake when she moved to Montana. Her rental is a mess, her coworkers at the trauma center are hostile, and her handsome landlord, Dex Belmont, is far from charming. But just when she’s about to throw in the towel, life in Bear Mountain takes a surprisingly sexy turn…
Hot Winter Nights is a fun, novella length contemporary romance that is sure to please romance readers who are craving something short and sweet. Codi Gary is a new to me author and I actively enjoyed this short romance and can’t wait for more from this series and this author.
Allie has just arrived in the middle of nowhere, to a run down rental and a demanding new job. The last thing she needs is a surly landlord who wasn’t very upfront in his rental description who also looks amazing in his jeans and tool belt. The safer bet would be her equally hot coworker who has direction, is steady and stable. Making the decision should be easy, but the heart wants what it wants and maybe that’s not the safe bet.
Allie and Dex had a tumultuous relationship from the start that often had me chuckling while reading. Allie was often prickly (probably had to do with all her uptightness) with Dex which set off his obstinate nature. That, in turn, ramped up the building emotion making the romance aspect burst into flames. While it was light on actual sex, the banter foreplay more than makes up for the lack of the physical. There’s even a love triangle, you know, if you like that sort of thing.
I really liked how the author managed to get such a full story into so few pages. Read in one lone sitting, I didn’t feel deprived at all. Plus, I’m already hooked for whenever book two releases. That’s pretty special.
I give Hot Winter Nights by Codi Gary 4 stars!
