Early Review: Hot Winter Nights ~ A Heartbreaker Bay Novel by Jill Shalvis

Sep 21, 2018


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 Shalvis has done it again with another hit in her Heartbreaker Bay series!

Molly has been working at Hunt Investigations as an office manager but has been begging her boss Archer for a chance to work a case. Unfortunately, her boss doesn’t think she’s ready and her brother Joe who also works for Hunt Investigations is over protective because of events that happened to her in the past. Molly won’t let that stop her though. There’s a case she’s going to take, even if it’s on her own time. When their boss secretly asks Lucas Knight to watch out for her knowing she’s going to investigate a “Bad Santa”, he’s all too willing even though he hates lying to her on why he’s helping her. As the two of them work as a team on the case, things start to really heat up between them. Lucas has loved and lost in the past and Molly has her own demons she’s dealing with, not to mention that her brother and boss would probably not be very happy if they found out about them. But you can’t fight that kind chemistry…

I loved Lucas and Molly together! Molly was a strong, independent character and so good at working the case and I loved how Lucas could see that about her and supported her.

Hot Winter Nights was such a great read. Sexy, fun, romantic and a little suspense thrown in! This series is still going strong!
