This installment into the Heartbreaker series definitely falls as one of my favorite books in the series. I loved Lucas and Molly together so much. Lucas is serious and staid and very poker-faced in every circumstance...until he's faced with Molly. Molly is sweet and fun and enthusiastic about everything. She's a go-getter which is why she wants a place on Archer's investigative team.
But Lucas is teamed up with her to keep her under control. What he doesn't expect is to come to respect Molly's true ability to get the job done and done well. Lucas never saw that coming...or the fact that he wouldn't be able to resist Molly's immeasurable charms.
The curmudgeon and the optimist...this pairing worked for me on so many levels. Lucas needed Molly in his life in the worst way.
And honestly, my favorite thing about this book...simply the best meet-cute/start to a story ever. I LOVED that about it. Because it really just set the tone for the whole book.
It was interesting to follow the story of what exactly the two of them are investigating...this book almost had a bit of a romantic suspense element to it because of that Bad Santa investigation. It was really fun and entertaining.
Overall it was just a fun book to read...and gah...HOT!!! There is so much scorching chemistry between the two main characters...something that Jill Shalvis has MASTERED.
I definitely loved this book. I had to go order it in print so I could reread it again later.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest and voluntary review.
Well, I finished it.. Raised to a 3-star for improvement in proofreading. Story itself still did not excite me, nor did the characters.
A truly engaging story with a dual-pronged arc, Hot Winter Nights was the perfect story to usher in fall. Not exactly a Christmas story, there were, however, holiday-themed elements that contributed to the suspense arc of the plot. Shalvis is known for her swoon-worthy, sexy alpha males, and she gave her readers a strong and seriously hot one in Lucas. He’s suffered through losing people close to him, and as a result, he’s a bit closed off emotionally. Molly is kind of the same, having grown up without her mother but with a military veteran father dealing with severe PTSD who needed substantial care, requiring a young Molly to grow up quickly. An accident in her teen years left her with physical scars and a limp, which, unfortunately for the strong-willed and proud Molly, just makes the (many) men in her life a bit overprotective, something she abhors. What I liked most about Lucas was how he immediately understood that about her, and he looked past all of that to see the capable, clever, resourceful woman that she was, and instead of holding her back under the guise of protecting her, he was the only one who encouraged her to fly.
I really liked Molly and Lucas as a couple, they were very well paired, and I think part of that was because they were so in sync with each other that they actually seemed like a couple before they officially became one. I loved their internal dialogue, and how those private revelations gave the reader insight into the thoughts and feelings of these two characters who weren’t very emotionally demonstrative. Since neither Molly nor Lucas shared their emotions readily, these glimpses into what was going on in their heads played a significant role in building the depth of the relationship. They also had incredible chemistry, something they both fought at first. Where they may not have eagerly or easily communicated what they were feeling outside of the bedroom, they definitely had no problems doing so inside of it.
I can always count on Jill Shalvis to deliver an entertaining and charming story with endearing characters, and she certainly did that here. Hot Winter Nights was a captivating blend of heart-string pulling moments and a steamy love story with lots of wit and humor and a truly interesting suspense plot that kept me just as invested in the story as the romance did. Always well written and developed, Ms. Shalvis’ writing, for me, epitomizes everything I love about classic contemporary romance. Hot Winter Nights by Jill Shalvis gets 4.5 smooches from me!
