This may be my first time reading Jill Shalvis, but it’s not going to be my last. Though, a little on the short side (there are some previews , as to be expected with an ebook novella, in the back of the book), I feel that Shalvis gave me a good taste of her writing and brought me into Heartbreaker Bay enough to make me want to visit it again.
The story had everything I wanted from this romance trope. I really enjoyed the characters, especially Rory. Her character was almost too much to be contained in this short format, but I think it worked in the end. I liked Max too. And without his dog Carl, well, who would want a story without a lovable dog?
Again, it may have been a little short. And because of that some aspects of the story may have felt a little rushed. Overall, though, I feel like this was the enjoyable holiday read I was expecting. I am holding out hope that Rory and Max get a book of their own, or even just another novella. I’d really like to see the rest of their Christmas and young relationship.
