Melting Snow

Well, Christmas is only a month away, and I do believe this read was more than appropriate to be reviewed right about now~

Winter Snow is not exactly a Christmas fan. Not only is she an atheist, she’s also had it rough ever since childhood with people making fun of her unique name when the season of joy came around. But she’s about to change her whole point of view this year – cause fireman William Holiday has made it his personal mission to help her see how special these days can be. In his own sexy way.

I have to admit, I enjoyed this hot short story. Yes, the romance seemed too rushed and instant, but that’s what you get when you have to deal with something quick to read, so it didn’t really bother me. Besides, I was quite impressed by the fact that Leora Gonzalez not only made it fast and hot, she also managed to sneak in some sweetness, tons of humor in the form of witty dialogues, and plenty of likable side-characters to spice up her story. In my mind, this was a true win, so bravo to the writer!

The romance was HOT! Beyond measure. Sexual tension that exploded deliciously, lots of dirty talk, and yummy firemen who weren’t that ready to jump on shallow women – were do I sign up to get turned into a character for this series, please?!

Not only that, but I could totally relate to Winter. She’s insecure and has a lot of self-doubt, so it was tough for Will to make her see that he was really into her – but boy were his efforts appreciated! Women like us tend to doubt someone’s desires towards our person, and we often need a man to really push in order to make his point.

Well, push, but not to the point of sexual assault. It’s a delicate situation, not easily balanced. And that’s another brownie point to Gonzales. She made it so Will would not back down from his pursuit, but in a way that he didn’t seem like a dick. His persistence – and the fact he wanted a real woman and not a stick with floating boobs – really made him fine boyfriend material, if not more!
