Jenn never dreamed she’d have to move back home. Little did she know that a man from her past would transform her future…

There’s no place like home, especially when running from a bad break up. Jenn returns to her small hometown to grieve her latest relationship, but sparks fly as she reconnects with the hometown hunk in her snowy Sierra Mountains. Jenn isn’t sure if Danny, the geeky kid next door now turned handsome Army medic, is as great as he seems. No one can be this kind, this playful, this sexy…

Jenn has returned to her hometown after a devastating break up of her relationship. Trying to juggle the difficulty of being home and also mend her broken heart, Jenn’s having a rough time of it. Her parents own the local General Store and Jenn helps out delivering some of the groceries before a big storm. Danny is an old friend, and when Jenn finds herself stuck in the snow with a storm blowing, coming back home no longer seems like such a silly idea.

This is a very short, lovely story. I loved the small-town feel to it and the tender teasing between Danny and Jenn was very sweet. The sex scene was brief but intense and not overly graphic, so those not used to incredibly specific erotica should find this still quite palatable to read. As this is only part 1, much of the plot is still left hanging. I found myself with a number of questions, who was in the Lexus car? What happens next with Jenn and Danny. But at the end there’s a note from the author stating that Parts 2 and 3 were available. This – I would hope – should answer many of the questions left hanging.

Readers looking for a very quick, sensual read should find this satisfying. I thoroughly enjoyed both Danny and Jenn’s characters and enjoyed the backdrop feel of a small country town. As an opening to Jenn and Danny’s relationship I found this a great beginning and am interested to read more.
