As Ellie Richards is heading to a New Years Eve party she runs into a bit of black ice and finds herself stuck on the side of the road. Coming to Ellie’s rescue is the sexy policemen Matt Grayson who is immediately infatuated with Ellie and her off the wall humor but being Matt’s last night on the job before moving across country he doesn’t think asking her out would be a good idea.
However, as Ellie drives off to her party with her friends and an unplanned blind date Matt finds himself home alone until he gets a call from his brother inviting him out for one last get together before he leaves. As luck would have it Matt finds that the party he finds himself at is the same with the beauty he rescued earlier and now needs rescuing again from her miserable set up.
Like Fresh Fallen Snow is another quickie romance from Tara Wyatt and as with the other of her books I reviewed this one also has great writing and characters. What happened to start off as a one (or two) night stand between this pair could potentially lead to more but I would warn of again the rushed relationship for those that prefer more development time between characters.
With this book I think what really drew me in was starting off with such great humor in the situations, quite a few funny moments before moving into the sexier times that lead to the romance. A great combination that even with being short by the end you feel you know the characters and want them to find their happily ever afters.
