Falling by Firelight - Rose Ivory
Reading Challenge Category: Christmas and Kindle Unlimited
There’s nothing in the world that Kate Green loves more than Christmas. The baking, the music, the drinking too much wine with friends and family in the name of cheer, all of it. Even though she’s been single for the past three years, at Christmas, she’s never felt alone. But when all flights are grounded on Christmas Eve, Kate finds herself trapped in Seattle. With her family celebrating back east, she resolves to spend the holiday in blissful, relaxing solitude. A consolation celebration that might have worked...if not for the power outage. In the blackout, Kate finds herself shacked up with Nolan, her new a-hole neighbor with a tendency to make her skin crawl. Or, more often, tingle. With his condescending tone, tall brawny build, and sharp jaw so often clenched in disdain, he should be the last person with whom she’d want to ride out a blizzard. He should be. But when his molten gaze begins to thaw a part of Kate that she hasn’t felt in years, awakening a passion she’d pushed down to cope with the pain, she realizes that she might not mind being trapped. That being stuck just might bring her everything she’s been too scared to seize.
When am I going to learn not to pick random Kindle Unlimited books? This wasn’t great; I’m afraid. It has a really slow meandering start and considering it is only 103 pages it really couldn’t afford the amount of scene-setting that it began with. It really needed to hit the road running with the story, but I was waiting and waiting. It was just a nothing of a book; I was quite bored reading and found myself having read two pages and realising my mind had wandered and had no clue what had happened. So I’d go back to re-read the pages and realised that I hadn’t missed much. Considering Kate is obsessed with Christmas she doesn’t seem that bothered that she is effectively going to ‘miss’ it by not making it to her parents. I’d be devastated if my Christmas was ruined in such a way, but she just started eating cookies. I’d be running around like a madwoman to make sure I had what I needed to make it as close to Christmas as possible. It was all very bizarre and simply just a scene-setter for her to be with hmmmm I’ve even forgotten his name already! The only good thing about it was the sexual tension between the two (just found his name… Nolan). This was quite well written, and it was a pleasant change to read a different author writing these scenes other than Tracy Lorraine.
