Description from Publisher:
Everyone needs a New Years’ kiss.

Ellie Richards’ New Year’s Resolution: this will be her year, no men necessary. Who needs them when she has a successful website, a great apartment, and plans to ring in the New Year at a ski lodge with her best friend. That’s until Ellie gets stuck in a snowbank and a gorgeous, blue-eyed cop throws a wrench in her plans.

Matt Grayson intended to spend his last day of the year getting everything ready for his move across the country. But when he helps dig Ellie’s car out from the side of the road, something about this cute blonde who spews out pop culture references makes Matt wish he didn’t have to leave the next day.

When fate brings Ellie and Matt together that same night at a party, the sizzling tension between them bubbles like a bottle of champagne. As midnight looms closer, their time together grows shorter. Is their budding romance doomed to be nothing but a night of memories, or can it survive the changes the new year will bring?

My Musings:
This story flew by for me! It was a whirlwind romance in more ways than one and had a bit of everything you could want: charming, sweet, dorky characters, New Years Eve winter magic, and some wonderful chemistry.

Ellie is looking forward to the self-proclaimed "Year of Ellie" where she won't get wrapped up in a guy who is lacking in some way. She is an adorkable character and I was endeared to her from the first nerdy reference. Mark is a divorced cop who is on his way to a promotion that will get him away from Cheyenne and the ghosts there, to the rainy Pacific Northwest. He's sweet and seriously charming and will make you melt!

These two find themselves brought together by snow not just once, but twice and it was a pleasure to watch their relationship develop. This story is a bit light & fluffy, and it's a perfect read for a cool Autumn or Winter day with a cup of tea!

My Source: I received a digital ARC from the publisher to voluntarily review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is unbiased and my 100% own.
