Blog Tour Review—Hot Winter Nights by Jill Shavis

New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis lives in a small town in the Sierras full of quirky characters. Any resemblance to the quirky characters in her books is, um, mostly coincidental. Look for Jill’s bestselling, award-winning books wherever romances are sold and visit her website,, for a complete book list and daily blog detailing her city-girl-living-in-the-mountains adventures.

ABOUT HOT WINTER NIGHTS (a standalone Heartbreaker Bay novel)
Who needs mistletoe?

Most people wouldn’t think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn’t most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she’s been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that—but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once . . .

Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don’t mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he’s shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly’s brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can’t believe he’s drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who’s the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he’s ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he’s been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.

Jill Shavis is an author that I know can deliver romantic gestures and a HEA. Molly and Lucas are the type of characters you want to read about; mainly because the heroine is so sassy and doesn’t take crap from anyone. Despite the fact that something terrible happened to her when she was a teenager; she doesn’t let it hinder her plans to do what she wants most. Investigate. 

But her overprotective boss, brother, and Lucas himself, will try everything in their power to keep her safe. Even if that means “babysitting” her while she does it. While the story is good and swoony, I still felt a bit of a disconnect with Lucas and Molly. For one, I didn’t feel any kind of chemistry between the two. That’s a must for me when reading a romance story. I liked them but didn’t care for them being together. 

Overall, this was a book that was still interesting and fun. I look forward to reading the next book.
