A fast paced, contemporary romance. Some explicit sex but not overwhelming. Something quick to read on a rainy afternoon. Well developed characters. Well edited. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Although predictable it was a lovely light romance story

Seem like it would be a fun read, but quickly became a stereotypical romance story. Luckily it was only about 100 pages. A bummer of a not waste your money.

Allie Fairchild thought a move to Bear Mountain would give her the refreshing new start she was looking for, but the minute she arrives in town and sees her new home she begins to wonder what she just got herself into! It isn't at all what she had pictured, but she decides to trust her irritatingly sexy new landlord when he says he'll make it right. She knew coming here would force her step outside of her comfort zone and push her to be brave, but after a series of surprises she begins to wonder if she's in over her head! This short, but oh so charming, love story completely melted my heart and had me smiling the whole way through. The minute I cracked this book open and met Allie, she had my undivided attention for the duration of her daring and inspiring little journey! Ms. Gary has created a true literary gem here, and set readers up with one heck of a introduction to this new series of hers, I am dying to see what she has in store for the residents of Bear Mountain next!! Loved every single minute of this story, it held me hostage from start to finish and left me aching for more!!

Hot Winter Nights is a standalone contemporary romance written under James Patterson's BOOKSHOTS imprint (fast reads for fast times). At 160 pages/2 hours, 52 minutes via audio, this is a quick and easy read, as the BOOKSHOTS selections are intended to be. This story was sexy and likable, even with the love triangle which usually annoys me. It ended on a bit of suspense which didn't quite feel that suspenseful because of the fast-paced plot. My processing had to keep up with the chain of events and then it was over. I have read a number of the BOOKSHOTS selections and am enjoying the concept. Hot Winter Nights was no exception.

Allie Fairchild drove in from New York to Montana to head the Bear Mountain Memorial Hospital trauma centre. She arrives two weeks ahead of schedule, and the quaint little cottage she expected is little more than a cabin straight from a horror movie. Worse still, when stepping out of her car, she is met the Cujo! Or rather Bluebell, whose owner looks more amicable, and he’s Allie’s landlord, Dex Belmont, who gets under Allie’s skin, especially as he lied to her about the condition of her new home. And to top it all, he’s her next-door neighbour! Fortunately, at the hospital, Allie meets Dr. Hunter Gracin, who is precisely the type of man Allie would like to settle down with. Alas, it’s the infuriating Dex, a confirmed bachelor who makes Allie’s blood boil in more ways than one. Predictably, HOT WINTER NIGHTS is a quick read; it’s the whole idea behind James Patterson’s BookShots, and I did read it in one sitting. Codi Gary is in fine form as she weaves well-drawn and likeable characters seamlessly into the story. There are adorable dogs, giggles and sniffles, and hot and sexy moments. There’s a lot of what I would call “romantic action” in HOT WINTER NIGHTS, because things get very complicated with Allie, Dex, and Hunter; the latter being Dex’s best friend, a total flirt, and a really great guy! Allie has a tough choice to make: the right man for the wrong reasons, of the wrong man for the right reasons? The sequence on Dexter’s search and rescue work was too short to my taste because I found it so exciting, and I would really have liked to have experienced some more, as it was one of the many highlights of the book for me. Maybe Dexter has some friends who have the same occupation? And oh joy, oh happiness, HOT WINTER NIGHTS is the first in a series set in Bear Mountain! I really liked the people and the fictional town, and there are many more stories to be told, amongst them, Penny, a very minor character who made quite an impression on me. HOT WINTER NIGHTS is another delightful read from animal-loving author Codi Gary!
