What if you fell for your best friend’s ex—the one that had made her life a living hell?
All Zoe had to do was pick up a box of her best friend Haley’s things from Haley’s brooding ex-husband, Evan.
She didn’t expect her car to get hit by a snowplow. She didn’t expect for the icy Maine blizzard to start early. She didn’t expect to be stuck inside Evan’s warm cabin—alone with him—on New Year’s Eve.
And, most of all, she didn’t expect to come undone by the heat in Evan’s eyes.
This is the first story in the STUCK WITH YOU novella series. In each story, two people come face-to-face with extreme weather that forces them together…and creates the right atmosphere to fall in love.
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Zoe thought she was doing her best friend a favor by picking up some things from an ex, but it turns out nothing is what she thought it was. Evan isn’t the evil man he’d been portrayed as and in fact he’s actually someone Zoe has known for a while, although only through his work and not directly. If there was ever a bonding moment, her discovering who he actually is was it.
Evan is incredibly sweet and hospitable even though Zoe isn’t exactly the essence of niceness. I think she actually enjoys pushing his buttons, but he apparently sees something in her that he can’t quite dispel.
“And how’s hibernation working out for you?” I said, a little out of breath.
Our eyes met as he spoke. “It was a plan that was working. Was.”
This is the kind of book you just curl up with for the evening. Somewhere Warm is filled with a sweet passion that hums through the pages.
My Favorite Moment: When everything clicked in Zoe’s head and she realized the truth and what she needed to do about it.
